    Try this.

    Stand in front of a wall.

    (A)
    Punch the wall lightly, aim for the shortest distance between your hand and the wall. (i.e., your right fist should land to the right of your centre, left fist to the left of your centre.)
    Twisting punch, where your palm faces the ground when you contact.

    Which feels more natural, two knuckle or three knuckle?

    (B)
    Repeat the punch, but this time aim for the centreline, i.e. your right arm will be travelling slightly to the left, and your left arm slightly to the right.

    Which feels more natural now, two knuckle or three knuckle?

    At this angle (B), which knuckles "align" more to the forearm?

    For me,
    (A) = 2 knuckles.
    (B) = 3 knuckles.

    You should be moving on your feet so you're never really reaching all the way across the centerline.

    But it seriously doesn't matter what 'feels' more natural - the bottom 3 (really the bottom 2) are smaller bones with less support.

    I suspect most people who punch well make the contact on the second knuckle- the biggest and best anchored - and which other knuckles they hit with is pretty incidental.
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    "I suspect most people who punch well make the contact on the second knuckle- the biggest and best anchored - and which other knuckles they hit with is pretty incidental."

    Thats a really good point actually.


    Oh and PPlate I think your experiment wraps this discussion up pretty well.



    I just have one last question. Do you have to flex your wrist slightly to stabilize the two knuckle punch? Like, if threw a right hand cross would I need to flex the hand and wrist slightly to the right to line it up better?

    well the path of the punch should pretty much handle that for you, buy you're gonna wanna make a fist and all.

    I punch with the 2nd knuckle, which allows for full alignment with the wrist/arm.

    ok, the nerd in me is coming out. Pressure= Force/Area. As the amount of area get smaller, the PRESSURE gets larger even though the muscles in the arm generates the same amount of force. I would hit with my index knuckle to the soft ribs if I want to cause huge penetrating damage, and hurt my opponent (Yes, they would stop sparring). A knife penetrates because all the force is concentrated on a small surface area ie the blade. Dude, punching with your two little knuckles is VERY unadvisable, it causes an injury called "Boxer's fracture". I have to admit, most of the times, I'll be just slugging it out and not pay attention to what knuckles land.
