    Best answer: Proper training and correct technique. Once you have figured out the correct technique you will be amazed at the power you can generate in a punch.
    You have to understand the mechanics involved and the correct joint and bone alignment of the whole body. Boxers actually punch with their toes. And just watch a skilled boxer and how they punch and look t their feet and hip position. The mechanics are crucial to power. Strength does help but all the strength in the world will not help if you have incorrect and sloppy technique. Power is generated thru the sum of forces and the alignment of the bones, joints and the sequence of events with the muscles involved. Boxing and generating power is a complex concept many can not understand.
    How do you think a 120 pound small person can knock the crap out of a 250 pound bully?
    Ever think of how Bruce Lee did his 1 inch and 3 inch punch and generate that much power? It was not just strength but the alignment of bones and joints as well as the sequence of muscles involved.
    You need to find someone to teach you the correct mechanics and correct your sloppy technique.

    Hey so I may be fighting this guy (please don't say don't fight him because I'm talking about what if we fight) in a few weeks and he's 16 6ft tall and 170 pounds while I'm 17 5"7 and 158 pounds. I know I have the strength advantage Because I work out a lot and have nearly no fat on me so I have really no fatty weight but he has a height advantage, he's also a "black belt" in takwando at one of those weird sensai schools, So I was wondering how I should approach this fight (best strategy) for someone my build against his build in a street fighter and if I should worry about his takwando "skills"

  • Boxing, or Karate?

    I'm a guy, about to turn 27, and I think it's time I learned self-defense. And I would like to know which would be better to take. I'm favoring the idea of boxing, as there is no meditation, or practicing of religion, unlike Karate. And boxers can deal out a good amount of damage in a fight. However... show more
    I'm a guy, about to turn 27, and I think it's time I learned self-defense. And I would like to know which would be better to take. I'm favoring the idea of boxing, as there is no meditation, or practicing of religion, unlike Karate. And boxers can deal out a good amount of damage in a fight. However Karate seems to be a better self-defense skill, and better for fighting off multiple assailants... like say you're leaving a bar, and some guys decide to jump you. Not to mention, but Karate employs both hands and feet, so essentially you're using your whole body to defend yourself. Anyway I'd like to hear from people who have done either one, or both, which they would recommend and why? Boxing? Or, Karate?

  • What martial arts fighting focuses more on pressure points and simple mechanical arm bending techniques?

    My gf is extremely petite and weak. She wants to learn some martial arts but is physically weak so even good punches don't really hurt well.

    My gf is extremely petite and weak. She wants to learn some martial arts but is physically weak so even good punches don't really hurt well. The point is she's probably not going to get much stronger so martial arts that don't require much strength would be best for her. So being quick about grabbing pressure points or twisting arms/fingers and using peoples weight and momentum against them would be best for her.

  • Who would win in a fist fight between Obama and Trump?

    Best answer: It's difficult to say, but either way it would be a pretty boring fight since they are both old. Of course if Trump wins there will probably be another "scream helplessly at the sky" event.
