Please, Lord Omega, I beg of you!
EXERCISES/DRILLS TO DEVELOP SHORT POWER!
While I'm primarily a grappler, I'm studying Lung Ying with a friend for fun...and I'm totally and thoroughly swimming in confusion in how to help generate "Short Power". Any advice/drills/exercises would be GREATLY appreciated, as I feel like all my "Short" techniques are pure tippy-tappy crap right now.
Thanking you in advance, Lord Omega.
I'd be interested in any "dirty boxing" or striking in the clinch drills. I'm built sort of lanky, lots of the people I spar simply dive straight in and grab ahold of me, and we wind up in a 3rd rate imitation of Frye-Takayama. Any advice except "Back up while jabbing" would be appreciated.

Defense against chainpunching!
Actual question: Some practical strike combinations. Preferably creative/unexpected ones.
My current favourite is: left jab, left hook, left backfist, right hook, right backfist, left hook. More of a crazy barrage in which only 1 or 2 will land whilst leaving you quite open. But it looks nice on a bag.

I third the clinch request, and would also like to see sweeps.
Like you said, I dunno how effective that would really be. Seems like a good speedbag combo though.

another request for standing sweeps and fighting taller guys!
Some innovative focus mitt or thai pad drills would be good, something alive, I'm running out of ideas when I train.
Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
I get punched in the gut alot by shorter guys (when sparring with no knees/elbows), so how do I defend the in-close game without breaking the rules of the sparring session? I would just Clinch->Knee, but most of the time a coach/trainer wants me to work on something I don't already know how to do.
Also, you know that thing that looks like you're covering your head by placing the palms of your hands on your forehead or something? Is that a viable guarding technique for an amatuer?
I'd benefit from footwork drills. Could you do something for that? Also, takedowns from the clinch would be cool. Thanks.
