Punches (Cont.)

When striking with the basic fist, it is important that the first two knuckles are in line with the
wrist to avoid injury to the wrist (see fig. 2-5).

Weight Transfer

Weight transfer is used to generate power in a punch. This is accomplished by:

• Rotating the hips and shoulders into the attack.
• Moving your body mass forward or backwards in a straight line.
• Dropping your body weight into an aggressor. Your body’s mass can be transferred into an attack from high to low or from low to high.

Rapid Retraction

When delivering a punch, rapid retraction of the fist will prevent the aggressor from being able to grab your hand or arm. Once your hand has made contact with the primary target area, quickly return to the basic warrior stance.

Rapid retraction enables you to protect yourself from your aggressor’s counterattack by returning your hand and arm to the basic warrior stance. This technique permits the hand and arm to be chambered or placed in the most ideal position for a follow-on, which prepares you to deliver a subsequent punch.
