Karate Reverse Punch

Karate Reverse Punch

Step 1: Know what a reverse punch is
Know that with the reverse punch, you’re rotating only at the hips–the front hip acting like a hinge, the back hip creating torsion to drive the punch through.

Keep the arm you’re not punching with clear out of your range of attack.

Step 2: Preparing delivery
When preparing to deliver the reverse punch, be sure your shoulder blades and in and tight.

Step 3: Executing the punch
To execute the reverse punch, push from the floor with your back leg and keep your punching straight.
