    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    It is a great technique to have in your arsenal, it is very effective, and achieves exactly what it is supposed to. It's all about that fake knee first or kick, however you choose to appraoch it, it is like all techniques, it is about the setup. In this video watch when the girl uses it, it's perfect.

    Yes it was, I mean clearly in the video, she fakes with a jumping knee, and fires a straight punch while in the air. what else could it possibly be?

    A sloppy overhand right?

    Look if you want to insist it's a superman punch go ahead but it was a poor example.

    That was more of a fake knee and then a punch. I thought from descriptions so far that she would have to be leaping forward during the punch? Is that what makes it distinct, its forward movement as the punch lands?

    I can see where it kind of looks like one, but it wasn't

    I think the definitiion of the Superman punch is when one fighter breaks off from an exchange and then jumps up and in to throw an overhand punch ABOVE the person's gaurd.

    That vid shows the girl getting the other girl dropping her gaurd by faking the knee and because her leg was up she jumped / fell foraward and in.

    But she wasn't jumping up and in to throw over the others gaurd
