    Bah! You haven't reached that level yet. When you're a noob, there's no connection between the earth and your foot. it's just a flying punch. When you reach a point where it just clicks, all the power just flows through your whole body.

    I call my straight left (because I'm a southpaw) Tylenol PM. And it's not for the pain relieving (or fever reducing) abilities, that's for sure.

    going up on one leg for sudden reach is a great scoring tech in sport karate...

    I uncoil my right leg, turning and straightening it while taking a pressing step with my front leg, opening and dropping my hips to shadow my shoulders, bending my front knee as I replace my weight on it.

    The idea is to turn the entire body into a transmissive medium for the kineticism of the punch.

    So, upon landing, my weight goes forward to my lead leg. It's not a drastic shift, but maybe 60-40. Since I drop my center of gravity a little, I don't feel tippy in the slightest, and am prepared to throw a second power punch with my left. Hook or bolo punch usually.
    This is a good punch, I know because it's mine.

    Yup. Nighty night time.

    But I usually try to cover it with a jab upon entry. If I see someone take that little step to their left against me I damn well get out of the way, because you know that they are going to drop a bomb. It's basic boxing I know, but a jab to the eyes as you make your step and start shifting your weight are really necessary to hide that right.

    It's amazing how people just try to dive in with a big right. I've seen it in tons of streetfights, and even quite a few mma fights, and it amazes me that they ever connect, as you can see it coming a mile away.

    I put my weight in my rear leg. Though I'm left handed so my power punch is from the left side.

    I do this though, only because I'm not very comfortable punching and it does generate a sufficient amount of power, but also leaves me the option to push kick someone if need be.
