I voted for #1 because both people have their eyes closed.
Actually, from trying to read Omar's clusterf*ck of an explanation, best I can figure it is a block into a punch....so this looks like it should be a block into a punch.
Well, as close as is possible with the examples.

Pi Quan is a thrusting Palm strike that has a slight downward drop.

...and I thought hand configuration and targets were simply done on the fly .

No there will never be accepted definitions. You see how simple it is to somewhat explain Pi Quan?
You do see the other explanation.
There are 40,000,0000,0000,0000,0000000000000 different supposed applications.
I call it the wordiness of CMA. The more complex it sounds the more knowledgeable you are.
Someone will eventually tell you I'm wrong. That is the dumbness of CMA. I don't mind multiple applications for techniques but, when you start stretching a basic strike into throws, sweeps, chin-na etc. it is stupid. It leads right back to **** like grappling is hidden in the forms.
If I gave you an American Football and told you it was used for Futbol, you'd say I was insane.
For some reason this same logic doesn't apply to CMAs.
Pretty much, if it looks like a palm strike it is a palm strike.

And regarding pi quan, how is the slight downward drop accomplished? By the direction the arm/hand takes, or by a drop in the whole body?Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
