    Maybe a speed bag? Or take up boxing and get decent with your hands?

    The key to kicking or punching hard is simple enough....


    .... Kick and Punch Hard

    On the heavy bag throw your strikes with full power trying to make every next kick or punch harder or faster. You can work your technique in repetitions (ex: 30 Reps RH Kick) or you can divide it into timed rounds.

    Body Weight Exercises and Lifting Weights: Talk to some qualified personal trainers, do your research, and join a gym. Stick to compound lifts for strength (ex: Military Press, Bench Press, Squat, Deadlift, Snatches, ext.) But what works for one doesn’t necessary for the other….were also martial artist not power lifters. For speed you can do a lot of explosive exercises like clapping pushups.

    Punching W/ Weights: Be weary of this exercise it is a hot topic in the MA community. If you do choose to do this exercise after researching both sides of the argument makes sure you don’t over extend your joints.

    Most importantly once again just keep on kicking and punching hard…or fast…and over time you will see results.

    One of the drills that we use to improve speed is what we call "flash target" drills. You use a hand held porkchop type target and have the holder hold it so that the edge of the target is facing you. They would then randomly flash the target (twist it so you see the face of the target). The idea is that you would try to hit the target as soon as you see it flash. Quickness comes from reaction time and this drill works on your reaction time.

    Hope this helps.
