How To Make A Fist

seiken — the correct fist

"How to make a fist" sounds like making the shape, right? The shape does not tell you anything about the quality and content though...

And making a fist? That's easy.

But a proper fist... That requires training.


FIRST, TWO ELEMENTS OF A PROPER FIST:

  1. Form.
  2. Alignment.

Third would be conditioning.

Conditioning refers to hardening the fists. Just hardening will make your knuckles harder, skin tougher and fist stronger.

BUT a punch is not done with the fist. The fist is just the contact point.

Learn how to use your body to create speed and power, and use your fist to transfer that into the opponent.

That said, first we need to make a correct fist.


WHAT IS THE CORRECT WAY?

The correct way means that you make your fist in such a way, that if you strike it will result in no or minimum damage of yourself and that you can transfer the most of your power.

The condition for making a correct fist is not just the shape of the fist. On the contrary, you can see the shape as a shell. If the shell is empty and any contents are absent you cannot call it a correct fist.

I show you step by step how to make a correct fist and in the video I will address the proper alignment which should run up to the shoulder—all the way throughout the body.

Additionally, I share several trainingmethods that can help you develop a correct fist.
