Not really after a few years of sparring, it's kind of natural. All you need to do is to work on timing, and practice it like a religion.

But other than that, it's not too hard.

would this be a legit move in boxing to block like the haymakers?

i mean you can pretty much block a punch anyway you want right?

Haymakers are SO easy to evade, it's pointless to spike them.

But if I was to spike, it's usually the cross or the lead straight. I'm still finding jabs to be hard to spike, but it's just me not getting the rhytm right.

In boxing, it's not legal to use elbows against punch, but sometimes 'accidents' occur.

In MT, it's perfectly legal.

-Taison err.. Grumpy out

Not with the elbow. That would mean opening up more because you'd have aim the elbow out farther away from the body. That's never a good thing imo.

I think I have to hit a living being. Bags don't hit back. Well actually they do, because if you don't hit with enough force to push through the bag, the force that you put into the bag will bounce back into you which, can hurt or injure you.

Anyway, sorry if I'm a bit grumpy, but it's one of my mood swings right now.
