    I'd be all for people like the guy who wrote this article, if they weren't exactly the same as wing chun nerds.

    I'm not at all convinced that the verticle fist is any less likely to break your hand than a horizontal one. Even if it is though, my guess is that if I hit anyone hard enough to break my hand it's probably going to knock them out.

    good read.
    a vertical punch makes it easier for a novice or less experienced striker to hit with the top two knuckles. As those knuckles are much less likely to go pop than the bottom three, I think this makes some good sense.

    its also a bit of an easier strike to learn. newbies have a tendency to waste power when throwing horizontal jabs.

    The article does highlight a significant point in that it describes how the advent of gloves resulted in the defensive aspects of fighting changing a fair bit. Less blocking, change in fighting stances etc. This may or may not be a good thing depending on how you view it.
    Other areas of the article are a bit sketchy...I wouldn't advise beginners to start throwing vertical punches either.

    I've met the author at Lansing, and did a couple minutes of touch-contact BKB sparring with him as part of a demonstration. Under those conditions, it was pretty hard to land anything on him; he's a big guy (6'4", maybe?) and not slow, so getting past that extended guard was tricky. How well it holds up at a full-contact level, I have no idea; I don't know how his group trains and I don't use that style myself. I do know that he's capable of throwing a decent punch, because he accidentally broke one of my instructor's ribs with one at another demo a few years back.

    As for the article, there are some things I agree with, some that I don't, but I don't feel like writing a more detailed review at the moment.

    As crazy as it may sound, not every pro boxer has the defensive strategy of Winky Wright. Most boxers don't even keep their hands up.
