Punching technique Simular to Wing Chun One Inch Punch

Here is an advance punching style which can applied to any punch in Wado Ryu. Some pratitioner's will only learn this after black belt, when learning Sachin Kata as is the first instance it is usually taught, and some, in rarer cases teach this from day one of Karate.

Instructions for Technique

This can be applied to any punch, we will look at the application of a karate punch, Karate Oi-Zuki however for this it is partially extended already.

The first part is stance, the traditional Zenkutsu dachi, this must be shortened, the better stance is Sanchin dachi, this points the toes making an arrow, to your opponents centre and core, where your power/energy is directed at them.

The second is hips and legs. This is where your wave starts, keeping your feet planted on the floor, allowing your back leg to go on to its toes, (see below), and moving them in order, so it starts at the feet, moves up through to knee and lastly to the hip.

The third, this is like tripping, or getting you leg caught, allow your back foot to almost move forward, but when just the toes and ball of foot or still on the floor, stop movement in the foot, almost as if it is nailed to the floor. This generates a whip form foot to shoulder, and your arm should feel like it wants to shoot out, as if to catch you, from falling.

Lastly, from a standing position, with all the technique from above, the arm, the weapon we use. The whip from above should flow down your slightly bent arm, with you knuckles about 3 inch from you opponent. The knuckles that are forward should be the lower two, and as the wave or movement gets to the wrist, roll your front two knuckles into you opponent, as if you are pouring something in your hand, and at the last moment of connection, clench your fist and let the strike go through the opponent.

This will take a lot of practice, and some practitioners of this method may take years to perfect this, but do it in order when training, and please bare in mind this is advanced technique and this is just a brief look at what can be done, and hopefully will improve your punching power. Take what works for you, any one part from the instructions above may help you.
