Nothing is ever easy when it comes to combat. However, the straight blast is just that, straight. Now, thats somewhat predictable. If your boxing with the opponent then you are working angles. Those angles negate the straight blast, hence the creation and adaption of the boxing blast into jkd curriculum.

Well then continue to use it.Thats what JKD is. Doing what works for YOU. Im not saying its a bad technique but it isnt invincible either.

yeah but if your timing is right you should connecting with you flury of punches leaving the OP back pedaling an unable to side step or counter but it does depend on timing it right




Basically any technique that is timed right usually connects but there is still other variables to it like did it connect solidly or just graze or how hard are you actually hitting for it to make a great impact on the target. For example my friend fought a wing chun fighter he got caught with the straight blast but my friend has a hard head lol and the wing chun fighters straight blast power wasnt strong enough so my friend could take the hits and counter him. Usually the reason why once the straight blast connects its hard to defend against is because the opponent is already dizzy or shall I say rocked from the first initial blast hit thats why its hard for him to side step and counter the normal response is to go back and fall down from the momentum of the straight blast. One of the counters to the straight blast that alot of boxers use is the lead left hook. One of the best counters to the straight blast but the hardest to learn and usually can be done by a person who has trained in that technique.

yes timing in any movement is important and for glancing blows or the intial blow i say my first blow of the straight blast is extremly powerfull because i explode with all my force while actually running at the OP continuing to deliver many blows followed by a elbow or a headbutt or a series ofknees which ever one is open for application so side stepping or a lesd hook may not work. thanks for responding

A lot of JKD folks such as Paul Vunak seem to swear by the straight blast. I've seen it used before in a street fight in Hawaii, where MMA is extremely popular. It was a smaller guy (though in excellent shape, and clearly a martial artist by his response), and he did a straight blast to a much bigger guy.





Although many folks are using more of the boxing blast these days, the straight vertical blast is “decent”. A friend of mine used it with success while in Spain in a situation.


Quote:


Like most real fights, it went to the ground, but the smaller guy clearly knew BJJ as well and he seemed to take it to the ground on purpose... the bigger guy was on top, but the smaller guy immediately had him in full guard with the legs and then he was able to leverage him, turn him around on his back and straighten his body. It looked like he was going to do some sort of submission, but the fight was stopped by other people.





I love it when smaller guys show some skill in fights! Sounds like the guy was pretty well rounded. Its amazing how well a simple strategy works to defend yourself. A simple straight blast and a little grappling knowledge will go a long way against the majority of average Joe’s.



Quote:


But the blast really stunned the guy and he nearly fell over before it was taken to the ground. He walked away with a bloody face, and the smaller guy had no visible damage. He didn't do a complete centerline blast, but got some face strikes in too.

Good stuff. The smaller guy was totally dominant and the blast was completely effective against a much larger opponent. It allowed him to do what it's intended for: throw him off balance, stun and take control.






That’s the idea. Again, a simple strategy is often more effective. Some people have talked smack about Vunak and PFS in recent years. While I don’t agree with everything that they do, Vunak does preach a simple (and effective) strategy for self defense that has been shown to work quite well.

you nailed it. my brother and i were sparring and we decided to get a little bit harder for a lack of a better word we put on a helmet and began to move around i caught him in my blast and i ko him. now he is 5'10" 300lbs and fairly solid.i am not arguing that i or the straight blast is superior to anything just it works best for me. paul vunak is a bad man and his teachings are just that end the fight before your OP has a chance to display their skill.i trained under dave durch who was a student of paul vunak and i may be a little bias <spelling>

Hmm. this is a good question. Is it better to get many small powered punches in, or a few hard punches in?




Depends how hard a persons many small powered punches are?
Some one flicking a punch isnt going to bother anybody regardless how many are thrown?
I would rather be using many fast full powered punches.
