    Corkscrew is a straight punch with a twist, literally. The Twist speeds up the final moments of the punch.

    Hmmmm, OK...... I know what you mean about the twist adding power, I've always been taught to twist the hand from palm up to palm down for a punch. I guess the corkscrew adds another 90 degrees in there. I'm still not convinced, but I havent had a chance to try it out yet (damn my lack of a punchbag!)

    Crowey, ask a boxer. Chances are they would have heard of it. Ever if they don't use the move.

    Straight knee: While your opponent is being pulled toward you from the clinch, your knee is raised straight up to meet the lower body/head.

    Round Knee: usually done with the rear leg. The leg is lifted up and swung in an arc aiming for the ribs.
