    Why? It is a question that someone that doesn't know how to punch would ask.

    I recently saw the old forum post debate about the 3 vs 2 knuckle leads. I think both methods work... obviously because both methods injure when struck with sufficient force. However I was intrigued when I read about Jack Dempsey and his power line, using the bottom three knuckles. I was even more interested when I read "the strait lead" by Teri Tom, emphasizing that Bruce Lee promoted the use of the bottom three knuckles, following the way of Dempsey. Now, I train in Aikido, and we are instructed to use the first two. Mainly for the reason of not injuring oneself, because there have been so many broken pinkys and knuckles. However, I find that the bottom three knuckles are a much more solid punch, more fluid, and you can execute the punch quicker. When you have to turn your arms to punch, it reduces the power and speed, at least in my perspective. I believe that both can be used effectively, as i said before, but I want to know what you think about it. you don't have to turn your hand if you punch with the bottom three and you can use more non-telegraphic movements when you execute them.

    What is you take?
    Punching with 3 knuckles is insane. All of the force goes on the middle knockle increasing the odds of breaking it.
