I can't believe you responded to my post. Let me ask you something, what kind of moron would not understand that you were making a joke post? I knew what you meant, but the fact remains that while even Psycho Dad's comment was relevant to the thread, yours veered off into Never Never Land.

Your post was nothing to do with the thread topic or with martial arts. While that may be okay in Boff Topic or Trollshido, your post was so completely off topic that I decided to mention it. Then you decided to be an asshole and respond.
You know what? I'm a bigger asshole. Next time, take the hint gobshite.
I will with my apologies. The brain is spot on and at times not so. My life is quite frustrating but I soldier on with hope.
He probably trains harder than you or I do.

You could go in to the open sparring, and find a boxer who'd gladly go at it, but you'll be sorry.
If you go to classes, you'll build an actual striking foundation, and realize without a hideous pulverizing why boxers punch like they do, and why it works the best for hands oriented standup.
MMA striking is a little different, as strikes in small gloves need smaller windows through the guard, to land, and the fingers are free to grab. The need to sprawl means a slightly different stance, and fear of takedowns means you can't lean into your strikes or overshoot them, like boxers sometimes do.
Let me assure you though, if you can bang out an hour of hand drills in 1lb (16oz) gloves in 3 minute increments a couple of times a week, you can sure as **** do one hell of a lot better than the best chainpunches anyone ever did ever in history.
There is footwork involved in every strike. This includes the jab. Until you get this down, you are below haymakers if you've been training some triangle stance nonsense.
As you are learning these things, and grinding it out, getting your jab-cross, jab-cross-hook, jab-cross-hook-hook, jab-cross-hook-hook-uppercut, uppercut-left hook-right cross etc etc into your muscle memory and engraved into your instinctive reactions, the very idea of pushing little punches out with your arm muscles without engaging the hips, lowering your weight, turning on the balls of the feet, tucking your chin a bit, and returning your gloves to your face will seem absurd.
Once you even hold the pads for someone who can spit out their combos, you'll realize how futile it is to imagine you can intercept punch 1 and counter, before the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc punches land on your exposed face. Not only that, but they'll be doing it with the added weight of hand wraps, and gloves on their extremities. Imagine the speed without, once you witness the speed/power of someone competent with.
There's no time for all that ****.
Many many longtime posters on BS were once deluded about the martial arts. There's no shame in it, or if there is, it's shared broadly enough that it's ok once you realize. I used to do forms in the air, toe kicks and silly **** and think I could fight. It wasn't until I went to a kickboxing gym, and got my ass handed, that I started to get it.
If you had, you might already be posting about your boxing/bjj/kickboxing/sambo training , and laughing at the chun.
