Jagermeister said:Also, I'm not quite sure what it means when the "elbow flairs" during a punch. Can you explain this in a little more detail?
When you punch if your elbow turns outward, that is what I mean by flarring. It will be easier to see coming and have substantially less force behind it. Instinctively, this is the way most people punch until it is trained out of them.
One way to fight it is to teach a vertical punch until impact, then turn it over with the follow throw. Twisting on impact also increases the chance of causing a cut, so it has a extra bonus
