Yes, you've got it right. You throw the Shotgun Jab by pivoting the hip (very miniscule pivot on the front toes, but the pivot is there!) and the shoulders.

When you jab, you keep the arm slightly bent and twist the punch clockwise so that your thumb is towards the floor and your palm is facing the outside. The purpose of the punch is to land the jab while simultaneously deflecting the hook.
Like I said, its neat to learn, fun to practice, but I really don't see where it can be put into practical application....

Hmmmm... That sounds like a cool application of that technique. I'm going to have to experiment with that. Thanks for adding that!
