The turn punch

The turn punch is the second punch in our Bando punching drill. When the punch makes contact, the striking hand has turned from palm up to palm down. The part of the fist that should be making contact with the intended target is the knuckle of your index finger, or second best, the pair of knuckles under your index and middle fingers. During this punch, the wrist needs to be straight so that the impact is distributed along the arm. If the wrist is bent, you run the risk of 1, striking first with the fingers (which may end up hurting your hand) and/or 2, placing an explosive pressure into the wrist joint, resulting in damage to that joint.

Feel free to watch along here:

Hope you will join me tomorrow for another Bando minute!
