close your eyes. never bring your hands higher than your belt line. don't wear a mouthguard. hold your breath throughout your fights. spar with broken glass like in Bloodsport. hang from the heavy bags like a monkey. quietly remove the floor padding and stack it in the corner.

...that's all I can think of for now. You do all that and you're on your way to a title shot!

Don't leave your jab hanging out there too long.
Once you've fired your punches, get them back to your face instantly.
Fire your punches from your guard(lots of people drop their hands before they throw a punch and show it from a mile off).
Don't get too predictable. Mix things up a lot. Use little nuances between your strikes to keep people quessing.
Never flat foot with your backfoot. Stay on your toes so you can quickly get in and out of the mix. If you're caught flat on your feet with a punch, you're going straight off balance to the matt.
Keep your feet equal distance appart like they're tied with rope. One foot moves; the other follows.
Don't cut yourself off when circling. Your lead foot should be facing his back foot and your back foot should be facing his front foot.

Can't think of much else.

Ok heres something critical you should know, when you kick make sure to land a shin kick from the area just below your kneecap because it will hurt like a bitch if you hit it in the middle of your shin trust me

I realize I'm bumping an old thread but there was some stuff that didn't get covered here so if it gets on track it could be a good newbie thread

one thing I wanted to mention was if you are competing in front of a judge that is sort of traditional (likely if you are in Thailand or have a Thai on the judgeing pannel) variety of attack is looked upon favorably

it also helps you score anyway so is a good concept to employ

Sometimes a good thread needs dusted off, doesn't mean it's old

As far as things not to do, getting caught deficating in an enemies drivers seat would be right up there with zipping your testes up by accident after a piss break
