    Found this rare video, which happens to include Alucard. In around 3:30 you can see his punching training.

    Yes.

    Also to snap your punch at the end and not to push with your hands.
    This too.

    Use a heavy back that has a canvice style cover and dont use gloves in the begining. This way you will learn to punch stright into your target instead of letting your hands slide off of it. When you punch try to push of your foot, rotate your hip into it and place your shoulder behing your punch.
    This too. I actually switched back to using gloves after bruising up my knuckles a few times.

Its the same concept that was stated before of rooting your punch in your feet through your hips and out the arm.
    Nice theory but I don't really think you understand the info you are passing out.

    Again nice theory, but even more misleading than the first paragraph . You are passing on a nice recipe for fail and injury .

    Is this how your Hapkido is taught ?
    Basically the concept of putting your whole body behind it. You will not know if your punches are hard with out a heavy bag.
    That is not true actually. Just hitting a heavy bag hard does not mean you can punch hard . Punching power is all about the timing joined with technique. You cannot develop the feel for it flailing about on a heavy bag with the internet as a guide .

    You need a target who is punching you in the fucking face to truly know if you punch hard effectively .

    If you want to learn more outside of what I said get propper training. Cross trining is always good even if its with in your own style.
    If you are training within your own style it is not cross training . What the hell are you talking about ?

    Well then your doing fine. As mentioned before make a video of your self and people will give you advice. I believe strikestan would be the place to post it with asking for advice. As far as more advice on punching goes what do I know, I train in Hapkido.

    You should try training in Wing Chun, they have a technique called the chain punch which if mastered is very powerful.

    I have seen some good Hapkido, it doesn't punch or kick with TKD mechanics.

    I haven't seen what you or your group does. Does your instructor really encourage noobs to blast heavy bags barehanded ?

    GinZen, your style field says you are joking but, well, you need to use a sarcasm font.

    Why? What's wrong with Wing Chun? How can you doubt the ferocity and raw power of chain punching?

    ;)
