Today’s martial arts lesson was all about stepping offline and using your thigh muscles to punch with power.
This is information which we all know — and forget. Here’s an example of how to use your power.
THE UPPERCUT: In precise terms, a left uppercut comes from the left thigh, stepped off-centre in relation to the position of your opponent. The body crouches, a little. The fist extends from the position of one’s jaw, loops upwards again, 45 degrees to the right, and extends all the way up the opponent’s chest to meet the undercarriage of their jawbone.
