I lead with the right, so when I throw a rear (left) straight, I'm pushing off with my rear foot to gain speed for the sake of momentum, so I'm not actually resting my weight on the rear foot, moreso I'm pushing all my weight with the rear foot, which is releasing my weight from the front foot and connecting with the punch carrying my weight, which is backed up with momentum. My rear heal raises to allow for torqueing of hips without misaligining my skeleton. Immediately after connect, my front foot catches any remaining momentum and my weight is almost immediately redistributed to both feet.

That's terrible. He's droping his left and is wide open for a counter punch in the ribs.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

Where is my weight during my power punch?
Well, if all goes according to plan, my weight is about evenly distributed... at the end of my opponent's jaw.

Maybe that good fighters can be sloppy.

At the point of impact, it's probably a 70/30 weight distribution with 70 to the front leg with no leaning and both feet flat on the ground.

I don't like the idea of committing yourself that much to a single punch

I like the idea of putting full commitment into a "power punch"

it just seems to me that unless the person you're doing it against is turtling up, you'd leave yourself out there for a mean counter.

But this thread is not about combo tactics, it's about weight distribution on your power punch.
