Well, the title pretty much says it all. When extended, the wrist should be straight, but when it is withdrawn for the next fist to strike, what does the fist do? I have seen some practitioners who move their fist in a cyclical pattern while chain punching, moving their fist while they do so, and seen other practitioners who keep their fist perfectly aligned to their wrist while chain punching. Which is correct, or which do you prefer?

The wrist should remain relaxed (but structured) throughout the entire chain punch, this is most important. Angles and position of the wrist is dynamic, meaning it depends on the target, if the target is moving, is the target in front to the side and so on. Lets say the target is directly in front of you and around the same height, then the flat of your punch (bottom 3 knuckles) should be facing the target throughout the entire movement, that way when your punch does come in contact with the target the fist can be relaxed and in the right position without trying to change midway in the punch. Sil Lim Tao teaches you this with the first 2 punches, which start from the center of your body then extend out.
