Concerning straight punches,iv taken on the ideas of Steve Morris where the punches are cyclonic and come back to you rather than straight out.It means your are less likely to be out of position if you miss or leave gaps like Jkogas mentioned and are always set body position wise to sprawl or whatever to defend against grappling.
Also you can hit fast and powerfull and often,if done right.
There are probably clips of him doing it on his youtube page.Worth checking out for striking in an MMA/NHB setting.

Its also done on his low kick so it comes back to you making it easier to sprawl and keep good defence.

I cant realy envisage what your saying. I would need to see a video. I think John covered a fair bit by stating getting in to a good position before throwing punches and which punches to throw and what might happen if they are thrown a certain way.

Also I should imagine by studying the grappling game(more) a person will be aware of what might happen and if at the worse, and it goes wrong, they have a counter ready. The mind boggels between the difference of trained and un trained fighters.

If and when I am attacked I hope they are untrained and they arent aware of all this make a person aware stuff.

Makes me re-define the way I strike.

Need to put up a mirror.

Flaring Elbows man!!! Becomes a sensative point.

Wheres my bag? Ah its New Year.

Day off.

Perhaps the most important thing of all is just being aware of vulnerabilities. Having that awareness is the first line of defense imo. Many people have no idea how and where they are in trouble until they're in trouble. It's kind of obvious but, people don't know what they don't know.

Kind of like the clinch. If you're (speaking generally again) clinched up with someone that has a good clinch game and you've never wrestled, you won't even know where you're in trouble until you're in the air and landing on your head.

Again, one good way of staying out of trouble is to stay with the straight shots, keep the elbows tight in the clinch, learn the basic swim drill, practice it, practice breaking the clinch safely (knowing that your opponent WILL hit you on the break) and train that continuously. Drill fundamentals ENDLESSLY.

Its best seen and shown,live if possible.
There are you tube clips.
I cant do justice to it to attempt to explain as Im still learning and it works best as part of a whole rather than on its own.If that makes sense haha.

Iv seen it explained as like how a horse runs,it tears up the ground with its hoofs using a cyclonic motion or circular motion.
Its fairly natural to do too.And of course its total body motion not just the arms,or there would be no power.

Its not Wing Chun and it can be done in a straight blast or not.You can go back,forward in all directions.

Its a sound principle.

Here is a clip on 'posting' on one side when puching which has bits about the cyclonic punching in it.

His right looks to me like it is what I term a drop hand right. It was one Ali used a fair bit. Any how back to the bag work.
