    In the beginning, I think its useful to exaggerate the mechanics. In the beginning I would really sink onto my right leg and dig in like I was slipping to the right, then unload.

    Yeah, I'll have to try that too, I'm still not having the desired power.

    The shovel hook is my favorite non-big 5 technique.

    The majority of my non-straights are actually hooks to the body

    oh man I love the first few lines of that pdf:

    What would happen if a year-old baby fell from a fourth-floor window onto the head of a burly truck driver, standing on the sidewalk?

    ...

    Even an innocent little baby can become a dangerous missile WHEN ITS BODY-WEIGHT IS SET INTO FAST MOTION.

    I think the latter will have to go in my signature.
