the performer looked ok, but the uke was half-heartedly throwing straight punches from a mile away. I'm sure anyone could get some pretty cool stuff working with those conditions...you may even have time to target a pressure point!

If you look at it like that, then most all Bunkai techniques won't work, not against a fast hitting fighter anyway. Give me an example of a Bunkai technique that works against a good jab or straight right.

Parry the strike, backfist to the face while using tai sabaki to get a good angle, knee strike to the thigh, front snap kick to the leg while overhooking the opposite arm to trap it, then punch to the ribs/or face, and then sweep and throw them to the ground. And this is just three moves form pinan shodan. At the advanced level it REALLY starts to get good.

Can you substitute the backfist with a forearm strike?

Second direction in the very first Shito-ryu kata, Shiho no Kata. Goes like this:

Head block, front kick, head punch.

The bunkai is self evident, and if it doesnt work then that is the fault of the karateka and not the bunkai.

Thing is Storm it isnt designed to work against a good boxers punch, thats not a street attack my friend - thats a skilled fighter - different game!

however after saying that if you work your basic technique from a 2 handed guard position (you see alot of the older masters with both fists in front) then you will see that all the basic movements are really very usefull - even against a boxer!

Keep the faith mate

a boxers punch seems alot more likely than an oi-zuki

in any event, nobody keeps their arm out. that method is for training other things.

for starters try this: both stand facing each other in a normal standing position. arms down by side. no stylized kamae. about arms length distance away. the opponent throws a sloppy but hard boxer-like one-two combo (one to the side of the head, one to the side of the body for instance).

now defend and counter using kata principles (or non-kata for that matter) of your choice.
