Overhand Punch - Martial Arts Punching Technique
This page provides details for the Overhand Punch. The overhand punch is a circular rear hand punch that goes over an opponent's arm or block to hit the opponent. The target of the overhand punch is usually the opponent's head. This punching technique is used in martial arts such as Boxing, Mixed Martial Arts, Muay Thai, etc. This punch is also known as the Overhand Right (even though you can also use your left hand to throw this punch).
For information on other punches & hand strikes, please visit the main Martial Arts Punches section.
