Hey Andy -- you erased the wrong post though man! You SHOULD have erased the one where you suggested that Chen Zen should have studied kata.

Difference between WC chain punching and JKD straight blastis the alternate steps forward. IN WC they keep to a single stance lead leg stays forward, not much momentum. Straight blast you are actually walking in ad bulldosing the target off balance. Once he is off balance and falls out of range, then you switch to boxers punch.





Iíve also seen guys RUNNING in behind the straight blast! Itís definitely not the wing chun style. When you maintain that lead as those guys (WC) do, there isnít enough speed behind it. When youíre actually fighting, guys MOVE man, lol. No one is going to stand there as you chain punch in behind that slow shuffle-step. You gotta HUSTLE!

Straight blast is not the be all of punching or ending fights, it's just a tool for the moment.





DEFINITELY a tool for the moment. Well put.

So, how EXACTLY (as best as you can out in in text form) do you straight blast? I mean maechanics, foot work, punching at multiple targets or one area, etc.
I think I got it but I'm not sure. I've been working on it hard (also the boxing blast has been a staple drill of mine now) but when I do it I almost charge my opponent kind of running throwing rapid straight punches alternate to the leg I'm stepping with, and I punch a several different targets. Is this about right?
Also, I have a problem with gettign nailed with groin kicks sometimes and straigth kicks both mid and low. What can I do to deal with this issue?

I have seen this on UFC. Is this where they hit with the reverse hand while running forward?
If it is I think I have seen a few knockouts.

It's feasable. Its a good setup to the RNC. You must be able to anticipate the forwadr movement of the opponent.




Perhaps if you studied kata the answers to your problems on this thread might be answered.






Man, thats rich! Phew! I almost got internal damage from that one. Though I couldnt say why, Im somehow compelled to ask you what "problems" do you think I have that kata could answer?

Hi Chen Zen.
Ok straight blast is that as per on some of the UFC's?
I think I have it on DVD somewhere. I will try to find the names of the two fighters.

Ok I think I might have at some time seen fighters in the UFC using the straight blast. I will look for the DVD and the fighters names.It would appear as though one was seemingly running forward while punching. Does that sound right?
