OK, first make all of Hatsumi Sensei’s jokes about thrusts.  Let’s move on.

Recently it has been driving me nuts how people were surrendering their power doing punches.  When your fist makes contact with the opponent/punching bag, your arm should be in the final punching position with only your legs and hip left to do the work.

My club has a method to hold the arm i.e. what angle the elbow should be and what angle the fist should be at.  This varies often from person to person.  But regardless your arm should be in that final position.  If it is not you are using your triceps to punch.  This is OK but it is not the Bujinkan tsuki.

I just had to get it out of my system.  If there are any questions/rebuttles let me know.

One response so far

    I love that you keep posting about things I keep bitching about. It’s like you know my thoughts…. Oh wait, you do. Nevermind then, keep up the good work! :)
