How good is your punching power? Is it enough for knockout punches? Many athletes and martial artists ask these questions, but there was no way to measure it at home without expensive equipment (punching power meter). Now you can do it. This punching speed measurement program is the best training tool for combat sport, martial arts and boxing. Use it during shadow boxing. It works without speed/heavy bag, boxing gloves and sparring partners.
There are many components to a punch:
1- Speed of the arm of the punching hand.
2- Speed of the shoulder of the punching hand. (Yes, the shoulder does move forward about 6 inches)
3- The speed of the torso or trunk of the body turning. The torso can actually advance the punch another 8 inches.
4- The speed of your step into the punch if it is an attacking punch.
Here are a few simple things you can do to help increase your punching speed:
1) In martial arts and combat sports such as Karate, Taekwondo, and Muay Thai, use heavy bags, standing bags, and similar apparatuses which have been adapted for practicing kicking and other striking maneuvers
2) Warm up before you start. Start slowly, but do complete motions. Each time, punch a little faster than the last time, until you are moving at full speed and power. Your speed will not increase over night. The process may take several weeks until you notice a difference.
3) One of the best known methods to improve the punching power is to hold dumbbells in each hand and practice throwing punches in the air. This is a proven method to increase the speed and punching power. It is said that Bruce Lee used 10 lb. dumbbells in order to improve his speed and punching power.
