No other way wrote:it really is mostly technique. i recently boxed a guy who out weighted me by 70 pounds in muscle and won. he didn't know how to throw a punch but i landed one right cross to his chin and he quit. it is all in your hips and shoulders. if you rotate your body at just the right moment you won't need to rely on just pure strength as much. but i do incorporate explosive push ups where i push so my hands come off the ground. that seems to help.
Did you catch Fight Science on the National Geographic Channel? The show had a bunch of scientist using the very latest in technology to prove what was myth and reality as far as strikes and kicks as well as weapons. It was very informative. For example, for a hand strike, the only fighting style that generated 1000+ lbs of pressure was the common boxing right jab. The other martial artists using their own particular style couldn't generate that much force. Who would've thought.
Another one was the front knee kick as used in Muay Thai. It was rated as super deadly to the human body. When they release this on DVD it's worth owning in my opinion. They'll probably repeat this so check their website for times.

Having said that, it still only targets the pecs, triceps etc. With a punch, I suppose you really need to develop the ability to use the whole body and build up the speed. Not sure what would be better than good old bag work.

Yadda Yadda Yadda ...
Does it make any difference if the weapon is being accelerated at the moment of impact?
Instinct tells me yes, but i'm not sure I understand the full implication of V squared.
What I mean is does the V squared correlate to acceleration (as in per second per second when jumping out a plane).
Bottom line. If I job someone at 100mph and I was travelling at 100mph before the impact ... is that different to if I had jobbed them at 100mph following a constant acceleration from 80 mph over the previous couple of inches until I twatted them?
