    Please, guys. This is the PT forum.

    Your title says you want to develop punching power but your post makes it seem you want to develop tougher hands. Which is it?

    You can toughen up your knuckles, but unless you learn proper technique you'd be wasting your time

    Read it. Memorize it, practice it. Jack was a cruiserweight that routinely crushed heavyweights at will. His work is the basis of most boxers' punching technique. You wanna punch harder?

    here's how.
    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".

    Scrapper, I don't see the OP living the hard life and fighting for every scrap of food and working in coal mines just to survive like the Manassas Mauler.

    Go fight some hobos in shanty towns and fight rail workers, coal miners and ranchers like Dempsey

    the idea 0f the drop step is probably the most useful thing in this whole text OP.

    tbh, you dont want to go down the vertical fist route, especially seeing as turning the shoulder and fist over is one of the principles of boxing now.

    of course this information would probably register alot quicker if you went to a BOXING GYM

    I've read that piece before. very good idea, that drop step. hard to adequately learn on your own. get someone who knows how to help you.

    It's the punching power. I mentioned the knuckle bit because I have been told conditioning the knuckles will give you better punches. I don't know if that is true but it's just something a few people have told me.

    As soon as I have a little more money. There's a kick boxing gym right here in New York that I would love to go to. Some of you may be familiar with it (it's NY Sanda).
