This video illustrates everything you ever wanted to know about the spinning backfist

Jon Bones Jones actually learned how to strike from combat technique books from Barnes & Nobles and instructional videos on YouTube. That’s not a joke, he actually told Sports Illustrated that. After a while, he finally entered an MMA gym to see what coaches would say about the skills he taught himself. The end result is the UFC light heavyweight champion. The rest of you who have been taking Karate and Tae Kwon Do all your lives are obviously doing something wrong if you have yet to achieve the level of success Jon Bones Jones has attained in the past five years. In fact, most of you probably have a long way to go. We want to help by providing you with the right instructional videos to master the techniques that make mere mortals become MMA champions. Let’s start with Jo Bonten’s demonstration of the spinning backfist. [Source]
