    It may be more proper to say that boxers are very likely to test there short power. With other arts that specifically mention short power(TMA mostly?) it is more likely they do not test it out. Just like they are less likely to test out the other techniques.

    But I would also add that I would expect the training and testing from the boxer so its no surprise if you see it being tested and such. However seeing a more traditional art like TCMA styles use AND test it may lead to a more surprised response to members of this board.

    How does a traditional art train for short power? i remember being told about it back in the kempo days. It was supposed to come from fast body movement and keeping everything tight to the body( ie. elbows in tight and such)

    However, isn't short power just a complex way to look at something called......EXPLOSIVENESS, which can be gained through olympic lifting, plyometrics and stuff? Most of the force in a plyo or oly move is in the beginning right? Just like in "short power".

    Makes sense to me because short power sounds to me like getting lots of force really fast, just like in plos/oly lifts.

    I just had a crazy idea to train short power.

    Call me mad if you want, but here it is:

    Use the "short power" punches on a heavy bag.

    Do you dig it or I just went mad?

    And all portions of the range should be powerful to begin with.

    That sounds extremelly logical to me.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
