I think the most effective training method to teach striking is to actually strike pads, heavy bags or sparring. This is how a person developes timing, power, and defensive reflexes like slipping punches. Doing kata/forms or striking air may work for some people but there are no kata in boxing, except shadowboxing and most people would not want to get punched by a boxer.
I agree with Jigoro Kano and the gracie clan. Live training will prepare a person for a street situation more so than grappling training that consist of less or very little live training. How does an martial artist know if he/she can apply a joint lock or a choke if they rarely practice applying a technique against a training partner giving them resistance.
