Ok. so im using a combo generator to practice, and i could use some tips on certain moves i dont understand how to animate.

Sweep (im guessing thats a leg sweep)
Difference between a Hook, a Jab, and a normal Punch.
A crescent kick
Bicycle Kick
Scissor Kick

Hook, your arm is bent and your punching from an angle and not directly forward. Jab is just extending the arm forward for a light hit. Normal punch uses the torso to get power. Rest I don't know but you should just watch a bunch of fighting movies carefully

If you can do stuff yourself, do so, and you'll find it easier to animate. For the rest: Bicycle kick is ridiculously difficult to animate without looking like you're defying gravity. I'd keep away from it. Scissor kick; bring one leg up to waist height and then hop while dragging that leg down and then bring the leg you hopped on up to shoulder height. Crescent kick is more or less covered in Baha's tut if you can find it.
