    Strengthning your fist punch

    Maybe I was thinking of doing more Bench presses since the power of a punch, mostly comes from its base, or youre chest muscles, I was just looking for other techiques, any suggestions ?

    If it's a properly thrown punch, the power doesn't come "from...youre [sic] chest muscles" at all. Even I know that.

    I got nothing else, sorry.

    EDIT: I do have a link to something useful.

    This would be Koto_Ryu's punching with power article.

    He's referring to my patented head punch. It is usually delivered to your opponents fist, but can also be used with great effect against their elbows, knees and shins. Feel free to use it at your discretion.

    I second that. Bruce Lee (I know I know, I said the name-that-must-never-be-made) and everybody in JKD I can think of talked/talk A LOT about putting your weight behind your punches. That is, the powah doesn't come from the arm or chest muscle.

    I don't know **** about JKD (or any striking art worth its **** for that matter), but I seriously doubt a JKD school worth somethin' will teach that the power of a punch mostly comes from its base, or the chest muscles.

    *** EDIT ***

    Get Terry Tom's "The Straight Lead" - it's an interesting book about Lee's straight lead punch and go ad nauseum about how to generate punching power BY PUTTING YOUR WEIGHT BEHIND (the book explicitly says that this is not based on muscle.)...

    ... or get some basic boxing books like Hatmaker's "Boxing Mastery"... or better yet, forget books. Just change to a better school.

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Your forearm/wrist strength or grip strength is actually more important to punching than your chest strength. Strong hands and wrists support the punching power that the rest of your body generates.

    oh god, not again...

    Punch with your whole body, people. Start with your toes, finish with the knuckles.

    And use the search function:

    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
