How to Do a Lunge Punch in Karate

Lunge Punch

The lunge punch in karate is known as. Or stepping punch sometimes it’s called. From here, we’re going to generate power by displacing the body weight. Our problem is holding the arm back, and flicking it at the end. What we have to realize, just like, there has to be a potential to hit all the way through the technique. Hitting here, hitting here, hitting here. What happens, of course, is the arm feels slower, feels less crisp. But then we’ve got to remind ourselves that we are hitting with the body. And the arm should be subordinate to the body as we step forward. So from here, moving faster and faster, it gets more difficult to stop yourself from holding it back to flick at the end.
