How to Do Combination Side Punch & Reverse Punch in Kung Fu

Learn how to do the combination side punch and reverse punch from Sifu Karl Romain in this Shaolin kung fu Howcast video.


Hi. I'm Sifu Romaine teaching you combination side punch and reverse punch. Let's begin. We'll start out from our horse stance, hand out to the side, eyes focused on your first two knuckles. From here, he's going to pivot on the balls of his feet into a forward stance and throw a reverse punch.

Very important to make sure you have proper body position and alignment all the way down to the rear heel, pushing it into the ground. Notice in the forward stance, the front foot slightly turned in. From here he's going to pivot back to horse stance and snap the punch right out. Again, forward and back to horse, and punch, punch, punch, punch, punch, punch and let's go to the other side now.

Ready? It's very important to balance your training both right-sided and left-sided, and punch. Again, watch the alignment of the body, making sure the front thigh is parallel to the ground, front foot turned in, heel pushed down and punch, punch, punch, punch, punch, and back to attention. I'm Steve Romain and this was combination horse stance punch to reverse punch.
