    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Chambering punches is becoming less and less popular these days, but most TMA schools practice it to some degree. Why? At my school, there's a few reasons. First, it helps you train for a worst-case scenario (your hands are down and you need to defend). Second, the act of chambering punches is in itself one amazingly powerful attack. The easiest application to visualize is throwing a high block, intentionally leaving your ribs open. The opponent will, more than likely, strike at them with his free hand. Chambering the raised hand will intercept his fist in the process. Let me say, people, that this is one of the most painful limb strikes I know. It sounds lame in description, and if you saw it you probably wouldn't be impressed, but if you felt it just once, you'd understand. The best part is, even if he can shrug off the pain from the strike, his head's still gonna be snapped down right in front of you. It's a beautiful move.

    So why do you guys chamber? I'm curious.

    Boyd, thats a singluar application... and power development from proper mechanics and footwork is more than adequate. What you're talking about is a destruction, and JKDchick would know a LOT more about them than me.

    I don't really understand why you brought up power and footwork either, since neither had anything to do with whether or not you chamber your punches.

    You're so emotional. Quit smiling, cheesy-smiling, being cool, blushing, sticking out your tongue, being mad, winking, clowning, acting wounded, being behind the eight ball, frowning, looking inquisitve, looking surprised (like when IGiveBjjs unzips his fly), being angry, sick, uh...grey, kissy, smug, embarassed, confused, and get a handle on yourself.

    **The most miraculous power that can verifiably be attributed to "chi" is its ability to be all things to virtually all people, depending on what version of the superstition they are attempting to defend at any given moment.**
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    I do a TMA, and I chamber because--Oh, that's right, I don't chamber. Because it's retarded.

    Staying chambered is stupid. Making a chambering motion can be a powerful defense, however.

    I like chambered headbutts.

    A lot of wing chun blocks are based on the chambering motion, but never do we actually chamber.
