Punching, are you doing it wrong?

November 15, 2019

The fundamental skill of punching is paramount in most combat martial arts around the world. It's a quick and effective striking tool.

 

Among the many thousands of practicing martial artists across the country, there could be a large percentage of them doing it wrong.

 

One of the most common mistakes found in all training halls, is the failure to step in when you punch.

 

Whether throwing a jab, cross or any other punch , you are always taught to utilise your weight behind your strikes for maximum power, without stepping this is not possible.

 

A solid grounding is required to enable you to exert your full force. By stepping in, you increase your energy and by using pivot-shifting and waist-pivoting, you are able to throw more effective punches.
