Technical  Guidelines 2

 HAND STRIKING TECHNQUES

A striking technique can be done with an open hand or closed fist. An elbow strike can also considered as an arm strike. The shortest distance is a straight line route.

  • The use of the elbow is imperative. The motion of the technique is centered in the elbow. No effect can be expected if there is tension in the elbow. There should always be a snap and spring like power of the elbow when executing any striking techniques. Do not over extend the strike, keep the arm semi-bent on the point of impact.
  • Without great speed, the strike cannot be expected to have much effort. To maximize speed and power, withdraw the other arm as fast as possible, thus making use of pairing of forces.
  • Punch smoothly but speedily, concentrating all the power at the point of impact.
  • Snap the arm outwards with maximum speed using the triceps, the biceps will automatically bring the forearm back, and the snap will be complete.
