    hi there,
    I was wondering if someone could give me some pointers in using the lead back fist (non spinning)...one thing i'm wondering is, how do I get the most power out of it? From what i find, if i'm about 45 degrees off from my opponent, i can use it at times instead of a traditional boxing jab, with my power coming from the angle, and co rotation of my hips and extention of the arm at the same time.

    What are some good ways to set it up, and what are some get set ups you can use with it? I'm trying to think out side of the boxing with my striking, and I have seen this technique KO people from odd angles. I just wonder why you don't see it more often?

    Throw a right hay-maker at your opponent's head. When he dodges under your arm, you change your right hay-maker into a right back fist and hit on top of his head. If you then follow with an uppercut, that will be a good combo.

    horizontal -> downward -> upward
