I can't get the damn footwork down.
Have you ever did a lay up or high jump?
If you have it's simple lift your foot up, as you start to come off the groun a little bit kick straight back with the same leg and allow your upper body to rock forward a bit and punch.
If you have a hard time with that try simply rocking your power foot forward from the rear position and then allowing it to rock straight back.
bahaha no real footwork needed. jump foward and bam

There is some footwork needed. Without the footwork you end up doing some retarded looking punch in the air (or an unarmed raining dog). The foot needs to be kicked backwards to counterbalance the body (and if you're not throwing it off a fake kick there's not much of a point). The counterbalancing allows you to extend the upper body into it, which is important if you try the elbow spike variation.

I hit people with it a lot :)
Manu once told me it's a good technique to use when someone is coming forward. Tag the leg, move back, tag the leg, move back, SUPERMAN PUNCH!
I've never done it like that, but that seems like a reasonable application.

So basically what you do is jump forward and kick back like you're starting to sprawl?

That's actually a pretty good way to explain it. Only add a fake kick into the jump forwar part.

Slyderm has the idea of how it's set up - the leg comes forward, then shoots back as your upper body comes forward with the punch. The leg coming forward is a fake for a round kick, push kick, or knee, depending on how you move the leg and what you've been leading him into expecting.
AFAIK, a cobra punch is when you step back to avoid a high round kick, then spring forward and throw a right straight. It's called a cobra punch because, using a peekaboo guard, your right hand will look like a rearing cobra's head when you step back.

i found the thing about the "fake punch to right straight"...gsp wasnt on a "fake kick to right straight " so it may not be namly a "superman punch"...
