Vertical Snap and Thrust Punch

Vertical Snap & Thrust Punch

Basic recommendations when throwing a punch:

  1. The impact is with your two inner knuckles.
  2. Always keep you back straight and centered.
  3. You need to be in a comfortable stance.
  4. Keep your eyes on your target.
  5. Keep the other hand checking in the case of a potential attack.
  6. Keep your thumb closed into your fist, if you leave it out you will injure it.
  7. Don’t over extend your arm when punching, your elbow will absorb the impact if nothing is reached.
