What moves are you working on?

Okay so I had an idea a couple weeks back and want to try it out.

In a sparring session at my gym I threw a wild hook out of the clinch, he had me and I managed to break and before he could get another strike in I swung wild. He stepped out of it and went to come back in. But as I brought the hook throwing arm back across for my guard I threw a cross. The position of my arm, coming back across from the hook completely obscurred my cross for long enough to get it in close. He reacted too slow and I cracked him right on the jaw.

I just throught I got lucky until my next Karate class. We were doing kobudo and my master was talking about what people call the "Ghost-Step" where you use your opponenets weapon to blind him and slide to one side as he strikes with his weapon, in essense disappearing behind your opponent's sword.

That night I was eating dinner and it dawned on me...the Ghost-Strike. The same principle of a Ghost-Step but with arms. I considered using my opponent's arms as a barrier but after working on it with my partner I found that his arms just don't obscure enough with anything but a boxing guard. Then I thought back to that moment in sparring when I tagged my partner because I used my own arms to hide the cross. Eureka! The Ghost-Strike.

So two things. One...What are your thoughts on that move? I've used it twice in sparring (and about three hundred times against a heavy bag and in the mirror)since I first understood the principles and it landed perfectly both times. And two...What are some original moves or alterations to moves you've been working on?
