    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Check out 0:10 to 0:20 in this vid. Is that what we're looking for? It's all snappy looking. But looks like you'd really have to be stationary and grounded to transfer power from the bottom up while doing it.

    The first video showed something like the whipping side punch. Like in the thai-boxing. But this punch does not let you to shoot the others continiously. In the second video there are lots of weak slaps, that could disturb but shouldn't make a lot of damage. Some of shots were looking the right way. Your elbow is pushing outwards and up. And it's not pulling forearm up, but pushing it forward.

    Imagine if you had an axle in the center of your forearm and try to swing it around. Fist down - elbow up. You'll feel that your elbow is trying to get higher, than it physically can. That' s the power we're going to add. After that, try to add circular motion to your fist, throwing it forward while your elbow is going up. You'll feel your arm like twisting the fist forward.
    Something like that. You'll feel it, if you'll do it right.

    Of course, you should try to be stable every moment in a fight. Any more questions?

    Yes:
    I've always noticed that Russian fighters (Fedor, Igor) had a particular style of punching, it's almost like they shoot out the arm with the knuckles facing the opponent and they try to snap the knuckles towards themselves. It's hard to explain.

    My friend said this is called casting, and I tried looking it up, but no luck.

    So what is this technique all about? Why do they do it? Does it make a difference?
    Is this what you are describing or answering?

    Yes. Something wrong with the description?

    Yes, because there is only one video and it sounds like you are critiquing that video. Your next post reads like you are telling people how to punch correctly.

    I am asking if you are describing the Russian technique called casting and did you study Sambo?

    Oh, I must've missed that. Mine was originally Combat SAMBO.

    Ah. I didn't study sambo on a regular base. I "studied" some combat sambo and it was long ago. Yes, basically, it is the straight punch, I said that before. And there were two videos:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JISgLclfX3c
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-Krs...layer_embedded
    I assume, when you say Fedor, you mean Yemeljanenko?
    You like videos, I found some too:
    That's the way to do it, when you wanna show, what you are doing
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qr03rR5SYTg
    And that's the way you do it, when you wanna hit
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5wvT...eature=related
    or that
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxSXXZTh6qw 6:16
    And that's all.

    BTW, Omega, do you remember some "russian casting punches" from your combat SAMBO experience? I can not. I've heard some guys say "he's casting (a spell on somebody)" when the guy was knocking the crap out of the other. So it also sounds a bit funny for me.
    I think it's just a part of their own style, what you call a "casting punch". And those guys, maybe even Igor (dunno who's that) are just hitting their targets the way they can. Emeljanenko is good for finding his moment, as Popenchenko was. Sorry, no more flooding.
