    Why didn't I hear about any of these styles or these "Russian cultural tidbits" while living there? Or from my parents?

    On these good guys you can see how the relaxation of the shoulder girdle, torso, and pelvis lead to very nice integration of the legs and very smooth/efficient speed and power. On others you see just windmilling and brawling...
    I don't think anyone's saying you can't hit hard that way. What they are saying is that anyone who can throw a jab, cross and a tight hook will be breaking your jaw while your fist is out taking the scenic route.

    Im really not fan of this type of punching - It all too often looks like a broken hand/wrist waiting to happen.

    Apparently. Secret Soviet Orthodox Monasteries/Spetznaz church-camps. Holy crap! Russian warrior monks.

    what I gleaned from the old man is twofold: loose strikes like this were adapted from saber and singlestick work. Also, you could throw a high velocity strike from the hips and not need to plant your feet. This was effective from sitting (i.e. horseback) or standing on a slippery surface like ice/mud-which Russia tends to have alot of.

    He didn't like the big looping punches, leaves you wide open. He'd show us tighter work that was like a hook/backfist. You could hit and then easily pommel for a grip into a throw. Fun stuff.

    its not much of a striking example, the streetfight videos section?

    Or if Errant is right, maybe we merge it with a TKD thread.
