Harder to defend. instead of just straights you have to dodge more angles.

I dont know, I do better generally with a good straight blast. I dont see how the boxing blast is better, as a straight blast is faster punching.

Its less powerful and you're often higher up (though not necessarily). The elbows are down when throwing vertical punches, etc.

True but the punches in a straight blast are faster, and done properly, can still have great power, when combined with good footwork. I guess the bottom line is for me it works better. With a boxing blast, I take far more hits. But whatever works for you.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that the vertical blast doesn't have a place because I believe it does (when used properly).

Like anything, skill is the primary factor. Timing is necessary for this to work but it certainly can be effective.

It could, but then you're talking more about the boxing blast!

The boxing blast is performed by throwing a jab/cross that after the initial jab, turns into all crosses (because of footwork placing each hand to the rear).

You drop your chin (and level slighly) and plow straight forward throwing those right down the centerline just as you would the vertical blast.

The effect generates more power (because you're throwing crosses) but is a little slower in terms of overall hand speed.

Which you perform is a matter of preference.

Eh, I like both I guess. Either way, I like the whole concept, it's been working very well for me.
