As a side note, what do you think about boxers using that guard? (Notibly Tommy Hearns) How does the rule set affect the effectiveness?

Likewise, Willie Pep fought with his hands near his waist and managed a 230-11-1 record (230 victories! He won 111 fights before his first draw!), but I wouldn't recommend emulating his style unless you've got magic feet.
I'd suggest trying to work a crazy monkey-style wuji as one often sees in xingyi until you've gotten your shuaijiao into a good state. You'll want to be able to close up into a CM guard when in-fighting anyway -- even Hearns did that.“Most people do not do, but take refuge in theory and talk, thinking that they will become good in this way” -- Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, II.4

In fact it will make it easier to overcome that natural aversion to heading straight into the bore of your opponent's punches, which is was you'll have to do anyway if you want to get a grip on him. You can use your forearms to feed your way into a collar tie set up or a thai clinch quite well.
As per Tommy Hearns, he also had one of the sickest and quickest, lead double shovel hooks I've ever seen.Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant;
they too have their story.

Sorry I missed this one guys. I drifted away from the forum for a little bit. I had fun last time (November) and would love to do it again.
