"ive never hit anyone with that where it didnt break something"
yes, im sure thats totally true. cool clip though
His description of the forearm turn/hip swing is very similar to what is found in Edwin Haislet's "Boxing".
There's definitely something to that "roll the shoulder over the top" thing. I tried it last night on the heavy bag and there was a notable difference in power. I'll see how it meshes with kicks next time I spar.
