The Dan Beato video is what got me on track with my RHBH. The way he demonstrates his technique is really well done and he breaks things down brilliantly. I will say that not all of us have his arm and the speed he achieves through the "hit" is incredible. But maybe with some practice I can get there.

So... I got in a short round of pratice drives today, the stand still pec-rip-release thingy that Beato shows off really worked!
I was able to drive as far as with an x step with just the pec acceleration.
The back leg kick up-weight-shift-thing was pretty kool too.
Now I need to practice more.
But the arm point (elbow lead) was very accurate in comparrison to the grip and rips I usually drop.
Just need to pratice amount of twist to put in before release, the sweet spot to "wind" to and I think I will be able to put it all together

It probably helps that Dan Beato is 15 feet tall.

I think they are talking about the Youtube video but I might be wrong.
Nice one to watch regardless.
