    Sounds like the Achilles move from Troy.

    I was training with a friend of mine Monday who was the protoge of my late kickboxing coach. He was eating me up with body shots (deja vu) so I came through with the superman punch. My late coach (name dropping here), who was one of Chuck Liddells old training partners, used to abuse us in the ring, taught us that maneuver back in 98.

    Hey when you tell us stories next time, can you be in a rocking chair with a straw hat and be strumming a mean tune with a banjo?

    Related note: This is an awesome technique and is unorthodox enough to catch most people off guard. I think Mike Zambidis gets to keep the crown on this one though.

    I'm curious as to form as I haven't seen it much. Or maybe I just haven't been looking out for it.
