Straight Punch - Martial Arts Punching Technique

This page provides information on how to do a straight punch. This punch is also known as a cross (i.e. right cross), reverse punch or rear hand punch. A straight punch is the standard power punch used in most martial arts. For this punch, martial arts students are striking an opponent with their rear hand versus a jab where they would strike an opponent with their forward fist.

A straight punch is generally more powerful than a jab because martial arts students rotate their body into the punch and thus generate more power. For more punches and hand/arm strikes, please visit the main Punches & Strikes page.
