comment What are the advantages of using a vertical fist for punching?
@曾気青昭雄 I'm not sure what you're advocating. Hitting someone in the head with a closed fist has been shown repeatedly to be a major risk for breaking the hand regardless of which knuckles are the striking surface. Boxer's fracture is in fact most commonly of the 4th or 5th knuckle, not the 2nd or 3rd.

comment What are the advantages of using a vertical fist for punching?
@曾気青昭雄 I don't believe the claim that one can land 4 strikes faster than one heavy strike, unless you're comparing a jab to a looping overhand right or similar. And I don't know what you mean about the forefinger/middle finger knuckles: that is correct per Isshinryu's vertical punch.

comment What exercises help with explosive hip rotation
My understanding is that hip power for punching comes from the glutes, which are worked plenty by squats and deadlifts. And the fact that they increased punching speed in 10 minutes shows that there was no increase in strength or power due to the workout, but rather that the machine merely provided a warm-up. The examples clearly show the students employing a hip turn in their second try, but that's a technique issue, not strength.

This varies school-to-school, but what I've seen is that your next promotion goes to blue.
