Let's cover some punches. First one will be a left punch. First thing that you want to remember about punches is that they are making contact with a big knuckles. And the only, those two big knuckles, nothing else. You also want to maximize the amount of impact that you are creating. Therefore, you want to concentrate the energy directly straight forward. And try to rotate your punches on impact, trying to create a bigger damage.

So from basic stand my hand will go straight out, will close in the way out. Make contact and rotation. Elbow will never be entirely locked. And the punch is finished only when the hand comes back for protection. So it's a full motion going out and in.

Let's do it together slow. One, boom. One, boom. One, boom. Let's do it a little quicker. One. One. One. Let's do it much quicker. Aye! Aye! Aye! Right punch. Right punch. A slight disadvantage because your left foot, your right foot, sorry, is to the rear, and therefore your right punch is not as long. Therefore, you must create a pivot, which is a rotation of your body. And your shoulder is pointing directly towards the target. So from here it will be one, you're going to drive the elbow. Impact and rotation of the fist. Contact only with the two big knuckles.

Slowly. One. I need rotation. Two, ya. Three, bah. We're hitting faster. One. Two. Three. Much quicker.

Left and right is a combination of the two. Both punches coming into the same spot. Which is just the face, in a spot about this big. We're hitting it together. One, left, right. One. One. A little quicker
