Omega also benefits in part by having NO BONES IN HIS NOSE WHATSOEVER.

I know this isn't boxing, and keeping a hand low makes sense in other contexts (like if you want plan on catching kicks for takedown).
Even some successful pure boxers don't keep their hands up guarding the face all the time. Muhammed Ali and Naseem Hamed are both examples of people fighting with one or both hands low.!!RENT SPACE HERE FOR 10 VBUCKS PER LINE PER MONTH!!

And Mayweather pretty much sticks to that weird "thinking-man" stance, with one arm parallell to his waist on his chest, and one right at his chin.

I noticed that you lean back a lot when you throw your leg kicks. Is this just to keep your head out of harms way or do you manage some sort of power generation with this technique? I had an argument with someone a while back about leaning back on kicks and these days I'm finding that I've changed my position to a degree (I used to think it was helpful, but not so much anymore). It's become my recent observation that launching yourself forward makes for a stronger kick...

ps, I like that shuffle jab move.

Omega, I can actually see the TKD influence in your stand-up. ...Er, that's not an insult.

When I was training Muay Thai I had to stop leaning back when I kicked because the more experienced guys would either shunt me onto my arse or take my leg out." The reason elite level MMAists don't fight with aikido is the same reason elite level swimmers don't swim with their lips." - Virus
