How To Improve Martial Arts Punching Power

This section looks at how to improve a martial artist's punching and striking power. A powerful punch does not depend on just a strong arm. Rather, it involves the arms, upper body, core and legs of the martial artist working together as a coordinated unit. Therefore, to maximize your punching power, you must work on combining the elements listed below. You should also visit our Kicking Power section.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. If you have had an injury or are in pain, please see a doctor before starting any stretching or exercise program.

Use Proper Punching & Striking Techniques

  • Work with a skilled instructor in order to learn how to hit a target with the proper technique every time. You need to learn how to correctly throw a specific punch or strike (i.e. correct fist position, correct stance, etc.).
  • Practice with a punching bag in order to sharpen your skills and work on a technique's accuracy and power.
  • Utilize various heavy bag drills and speed bag drills in order to sharpen your technique and boost your speed & power.

Arm, Shoulder & Back Strength

Rotational Power

Move Aggressively Towards The Target

Punching Accuracy

  • Punching power is magnified by hitting a critical spot (i.e. vital points) versus a glancing blow.
