Five Steps to the Best Karate Strike in the world!

Best Karate Strike Achieved Through Five Points

The Best Karate strike is the one that knocks out the other guy. But, how do you develop that perfect Karate punch or kick that will knock them down…first time every time? How do you build the Perfect Karate strike? Interestingly enough, there are five point that must be implemented. Do these points, and you will have the hardest karate punch and the fastest karate kick ever, and you can even implement these points if you study another art, such as Kung Fu or Kenpo.

A Strong Punch is Filled with Spirit and Conviction!

First, you must sink your weight. Sinking your weight gives you power, it stops you from having your own body move back from the impact. Remember, a karate strike, where it impacts upon the other body, is basically an explosion. You don’t want to be pushed back from the force of your own explosion!

Second, you must turn the hips into the strike. The best biomechanical study indicate that the more weight you put into the strike, the more effect that strike will have. Doesn’t matter if it is a slamming elbow strike, a fast karate strike, or whatever…to move the hips is to move the weight.

Third, full power comes at full extension. Mind you, you don’t your karate hand strikes over extending, this could result in bone bruises in the elbow if the bones slap together. But you do want the muscles to have the chance to fully extend into the strike points.

Four pick your target. Heck, buy a karate strike points poster, study these points, figure out how to hit those points, and alter your techniques until you can hit those karate strike points every time. A karate strike, the best karate strike, is near a pressure point , and it can do vastly more damage than a karate strike near what seem to be good and big targets.

Fifth point, imagination. Whether you do a palm strike or a ridge hand strike or whatever, you must practice that strike, and you must visualize, imagine, and get the idea of that strike before you ever try it. The best karate strike is built with imagination, and will have more intention, and will do more damage.

The trick, if you are going to have the best karate strike you can, is to put these five points together. Further, you must educate yourself as to such concepts as timing, focus, and so on. Simply, you must become a scientist of Karate, and that is the story of how to have the Best Karate strike you can.

Three Ways to Make a Harder Martial Arts Kick!

I don’t care what art your martial arts kick is form, whether it is a karate kick, a taekwondo kick, or a kung fu kick, these three principles will make it much more efficient. Check out the snippet, then I’ll tell you about the three things.

First, get the knee high before you kick. Break it down to lifting the knee, extending the foot, retracting the foot (to the high knee position). Take your time and work on these parts, then let them come together naturally. The point here is that you will be shooting the foot in straight, not arcing up and then in, but shooting straight.
Second, turn the hips slightly into the kick. This means you must turn the body slightly, from support foot to knee to hip, but you must also tilt the hips slightly upward. The hips are the cornerstone of the body, and by committing them to the action you are putting more body into the action.
Three, and this one is the toughy, sink your weight when you kick.
Many people raise themselves up, straightening the support leg, but this is the wrong way to go. You must bend the knee, sink the weight, and connect the body better to the ground. It may take a while for this method to have effect, but eventually you will start putting a lot more energy into the kick. I know it feels good and powerful to just explode it out there, but if you straighten the support leg you are throwing yourself upwards, hurting your connection to the earth, and not creating as much energy as you can.
Now, as I said before, break the kick down to pieces. Examine each piece, examine the knee, the tilt of the hip, the turn of the foot, and most of all, the sinking of weight. Guaranteed, whether you are doing a Karate kick, a taekwondo kick,or a kung fu kick, the end result will be a martial arts kick that can knock over an elephant!
