Karate is the original mixed martial art.Long before UFC and its octagon existed, old Karate masters collected, mixed and shared different fighting techniques in Okinawa the birthplace of Karate.
Today, many of these battle-tested techniques are rarely seen in modern MMA. Why? Because most MMA fighters base their techniques on mixing Boxing + Muay Thai + Wrestling + BJJ. Thats fine. But its not enough
If you are a MMA fighter, you should evolve. The fight game is moving fast. Dont get stuck in the same old techniques. Think outside the box. Read this article to gain an edge. If you are a Karate fighter, use the following 10 techniques when you fight an MMA athlete. Almost nobody uses these moves in MMA. They will have no clue how to defend themselves.
#1: Ude Uchi
Ude is Japanese for forearm, and uchi is strike. In other words, ude uchi means that you smash either the outside or inside bone of your forearm (ulna/radius bone) into your opponent.
#2: Ura Ken (Without Spinning)
Ura ken literally means backfist in Japanese. Sure, a lot of MMA fighters use the backfist. However, they always use it horizontally, and they always spin before striking. I suggest you try it from different angles, and without spinning.
#3: Ashi Barai
Ashi barai means foot sweep in Japanese. Its not really a devastating move. But its the perfect way to set up a devastating move! Yet, few people know how to use foot sweeps it in MMA except Karate-based fighters.
#4: Gyaku Mawashi Geri
In Japanese, Gyaku mawashi geri literally means reverse roundhouse kick. The idea is simple: kick from inside > out (instead of outside > in), but still use the top of your foot as tool of impact like a regular roundhouse kick.
#5: Ura Mawashi Geri (Without Spinning)
This attack is like #2 (ura ken/backfist) but with the foot instead. You probably know it as hook kick in English. Most people do this kick with their back leg, after spinning but ot will be good if you want to try it with your front leg, without spinning.
#6: Mae Geri (Snap)
The snapping front kick (mae geri) is basically the second technique you learn in Karate, after the straight punch. But most MMA fighters only know the pushing front kick of Thai Boxing/Muay Thai, which is better for creating distance than damage.
#7: Mawashi Geri (Ball of Foot)
The mawashi geri (roundhouse kick) is certainly not new in MMA. But, few people do it with the ball of the foot. This is the old-school way of doing it, and works pretty much like the previous kick except its circular, not straight.
#8: Kansetsu Geri
Kansetsu geri is Japanese for joint kick. As the name implies, this is a stomping side kick aimed at the knee joint, or hip joint. The damage it can cause is horrible. Thats why few people use it because nobody wants to practice with you if you use it all the time!
#9: Hiji Ate (Upward)
Next, we have hiji ate the elbow strike. Most MMA fighters use elbows in a sideways or downward fashion. Thats good. But, just like most of the techniques in this article, this version of the elbow strike is more sneaky and dangerous.
#10: Morote Zuki
Morote zuki literally means double handed strike in Japanese. Back in the days, Kazushi Sakuraba used this technique with great success, especially on the ground. The concept is simple: Slap, punch, strike or chop with both hands at the same time. Your opponent will have difficulties defending himself against both hands.
