    Maybe you should write your posts first, then chew on your LSD. I have absolutly no idea about what your talking about.

    Go play the sexism card somewhere else.

    Preferably on a forum where most of the admins aren't female! :rolleyes:

    But have the potential to, if they know what they're doing.

    And do you know why that is? Because you've no idea what you're doing. By stating that you never will only implies that you've no intention to learn how to.

    No. No, no, no! Do not do that, it doesn't help. No. If you want to put power into your strikes, step in. When you're striking off the front lead (if you're squared up to your opponent and aren't planning on employing throwing or ground fighting, you don't know what you're doing), step in with the front lead.

    If striking off the back lead, torque your body. Turn with the strike.

    Also, I feel I should add that circular movements have a lot more power than straight movements. Go up to the wooden dummy. Punch it with a straight jab, or cross. In fact, go for the cross-there's more power in the cross. Now, slap it. Give it a running hand. Notice how much more power it has.

    ... why not just hit it hard without the visualization? If you need a vent for your anger... fine... but you should be controlling your body and should be able to hit as hard as you're able without any visualization or anything.

    So, you're telling people to inflict serious pain onto their sparring partner? D00d... you're an idiot. Yes, let's inflic as much pain as possible! You're an A-hole, and I'm assumong the MODs will ignore that because they agree... or should.
