    Every book I have read, every teacher I have listened to have advised finding a limited number of techniques that work effectively for you. This is usually to overcome the problem of the log jam, so my question is what are your best techniques? How did you choose them or was it just what came naturally?

    my best techniques used in tournaments are the lead arm jab. i have this crazy speed that can almost score points at will.

    on the street? my rear arm liver/rib modified uppercut. when i punch the heavy bag, using that, i leave dent marks that don't pop back out.

    So the question remains...

    Is having one or two exceptional techniques enough? If so what are they?

    Your "lifesaver" technique(s) are/is in most cases, a simple and basic technique, the one's that can be easilly executed. So, about a half dozen or so (at most) techniques is probably all you'll need.

    For me, it's:

    Side piercing kick (mid to high section)
    Front smashing kick (mid to high section)
    Rising kick (high section)
    Vertical elbow strike (high section, obviously)
    Horizontal elbow strike (mid section)
    Reverse elbow thrust (mid section)

    a low shin kick to the thigh is very effective, as well as the underrated three finger jab (sort of like a stabbing knifehand.), as it is very effective for hitting areas like the throat, solar plexus, and groin.

    I have a few and I believe they're enough:

    Falling Side Kick
    Ridge Hand
    Knife Hand
    Spear Hand
    (Jumping) Front Snap Kick (Any Level)
    Side Kick
    Hooking Kick
    Any Kind of Elbow Strike
    Any Level Punch
