Lol Sigged!You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

I ended a fight once with a single headbutt. I was shocked, the guy's nose cracked right open and he was done.
He deserved it though, he was trash-talking me as I was leaving a bar so I just turned around, grabbed him by the shirt and BANG!
I was amazed at how effective it was, I had never done it before.
It was fuckin' sweet. :XXjester:" If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

For straight punches i think fists are peachy though probably a little safer with more of a verticle slant.
I'd also say that you don't need to be putting on all the mustard when you punch bareknuckle. Placement and the opponent's posture is more important than power... which of course is the case anyway :smile: but it's easier to mess up your hand when you don't heed that in this case. Keep your skeleton behind the punches, drive for the spine at first with moderate power to disbalance, and save the power shots for when the opponent has no base (though still shouldn't be near as "hard" as you could go with gloves on the bag). You shouldn't throw before kuzushi, why prematurely blow your proverbial wad in this case?
I've been taught a nice little tool for finding optimal body alignment for most strikes. Make your fist against a wall, and start applying force like you would for a punch. Keeping your limbs aligned as closely to a relaxed position as possible, search until you feel the reflected force move from the arm/shoulder down into your legs, and optimally "out the bottom of your feet." Your whole skeleton should act like a wedge between the wall and the floor. If you can make that kind of alignment on impact to the right places on an opponent, it doesn't take a lot of effort to hit like a freight train, and your smaller bones should be relatively safe. The danger is when you do the above and feel strain in the hand/wrist/shoulder.

I have a pretty good boxing streetfight...."technique"....
I have described it once before and I believe someone here used it quite effectively in sparring and mentioned their appreciation.
However, I won't be dishing out the good stuff on some white belt nub's request. I have an elitest image to uphold.

Groin poking after you eyebite is not the same thing as I was talking about. I cannot, however, deny their effectiveness.
