Granted, I do not do as much stand-up technique as many of you do, but like the post above, I do not use the body shot that often. WHen I do, it is usually a feint and not much of a power shot. Just do it quickly to send a message, without the intention of finishing it.

Really, the only time I go for powerful body shots is when the fighter is covered up and there is little threat of a counter. If I have a guy backed into the corner and he is covering up his head, I will throw a strong liver shot. Other than that I stick to kicks and knees.
