That was a beautiful straight blast. Belfort really did well to beat Silva who is a tank, and especially so quickly, just 43s.

The straight blast I have done in JKD class has always been this kind, alternating boxing style straights rather than WC Chain Punching straight blast.

Huh, sounds interesting, but why not just throw real fast consecutive jab cross combinations?




Because it's a cross comination and not a strieght line. The princeable behind it is speed/quickness vs power.

the straight blast gets it's power from foot work and the momentum of the chain of punches where cross combination of jabs would get it from turning your waiste. The jab, or a hook bot have a much more angular feel to them. The other thing, is jabs work good in a few stances, but straight blast works in almost any stance. Try a few, like try to do streight blast and a jab in horse stance, Your balance will be off and the jab will lose a ton of power.

The other thing is that the streight blast executes the one inch punch technique of closing the fist before impact and punch 2 inches behind the target, which doesn't work so well with the jab btw. Therefore if its twice as fast as the jab, it has a chance of being just as powerfull as the jab as well.

I would train in it, and get to know it, and then spar using that and then using the jab combo. Find what you prefer, and what works better, and use that.

I hate to disagree with somebody yet again, but expressing one's opinions is what this forum is for.
Clenching the fist upon impact and landing behind the target definitely does work for the jab, or any punch for that matter. In fact it is essential for full power. If we are to use our bodies like a whip then we must be completley relaxed so that the full sting can be felt.
This is not the one inch punch technique, it is all punching technique

When alot of people see the straight blast for the first time they think its so easy and simple to do and there conclusions to the straight blast is that it has no power behind it which is false. Like in any technique you have to train and develope it to make it stronger and more effective then you will see the true power behind the straight blast when done by someone who has mastered that particular techinque. When I do my straight blast I can hit just as hard or harder then most peoples right cross.

I think he might have been kidding. Sarcastic Type.

Some pretty good answers up there. But what about against an opponent of skill? None of you mentioned it. Thats the cornerstone of JKD. QUESTION IT. Question all of it. That is what makes Jkd what it is. Once you begin to ask the correct questions about your training and even about yourself then that is when you learn your art.

And to my question I answer that the boxing blast has been adopted for use against opponents with good enough defence to avoid the straight blast.

Ok, well why do you think that? I think that may have been true when the Blast was first introduced but now people are more aware. All it takes to avoid a straight line attack is to sidestep and counter.

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

Yeah but instead of back peddaling he can simply sidestep.
