Had to bring this back as I've been working the straight blast pretty regularly again. No matter how many times I try to apply it the boxing blast never feels right and never works all that well. The RAT style straight blast works fantastic however.
Jkogas-the boxing blast may work for some for the straight blast is definitely better for others and very effective. I put as much energy into the punches as possible but I try not to look at them so much as damage dealers in and of themselves as much as distraction and "suppressive fire" in a way allowing me to move in and get the opponent on the ground or open up elbows and knees. That being the case, the slight lack of power really doesn't matter much.nobodyan stop my blast once I start.
That's actually one of only a handful of tactics that I find to be effective for me. I also have found that it can sometimes work to end a blast with a lead hook. Just some thoughts. Anyone else been working these tactics lately?

Oh yeah, are you supposed to change your lead with every movement forward? Because when I blast I only switch leads (i.e. step forward with the rear foot) every couple shuffles or so, if that. Otherwise the same foot stays forward most of the time.

LOL, when did you start doing the RAT? Before you entered the military you were starting to get really into Nick Cerio's kenpo system. Looks like you've evolved.

If you don't change your stance your not really doing the straight blast, your doing it more the wing chun way of chain punching. I personally like to run into my opponents. Remember the blast is all about pressure. Really blast in there and pressure the guy so he gets off balance. Then go into your clinch or take down.

1. People are sometimes known to do more than one are at a time.
2. I was into NCK for a bit less than a year as a high school junior than moved.
3. I saw it, I liked it, now I'm working it. Along with Army combatives (hoping for level 2 soon). Essentially mma.
4. Ah I see, I guess I do a little bit of a cross between the two because I don't exactly run into them but I change m ystance ever few punches (if it even takes a few to get inside).
Guess it's not really a true blast. Works though.
I really like using jabs off of a side step and low kicks to set it up. Or just go in after they start to retract off of a punch. I can't get that running thing to feel smooth. It's like my hands move way faster than my feet and it messes up my timing.

Another issue I have when I DO try to run into them like that is that I end up over extending my body and essentially off balancing myself. It feels like I have too little control.

The overal mindset and strategy makes a lot of sense being a soldier. I would probably never actually use it in battle (there is no reason why a soldier should ever be completely unarmed) especially with so much gear but it fits with the military pretty well. It seems all about suprise and then overwhelming force (in that order) which I love (suprise as far using movement to create opportunities to blast, using feints, letting them hit then retract and moving upon that retraction).

Storm

You gotta break it down. Practice your sprints. Drill those mini 10 foot dashes. It's the only way your going to feel comfortable with the straight blast. I mean it doesn't really matter which way you do it as long as it works for you. But you can always improve on things, ya know. As long as you put pressure down that person's center line it's all good.

You said you like straight blasting off the persons jab when they retract it? Have you been working your entry's? Destroying the jab or intercepting with a jab or thigh kick of your own before going into the blast?
