    Where does the power come from, I can see the body give some power, but it looks more like a slap than a punch.. the shoulder is not pushing the punch, the body flings it around, so where does the drive come from?

    The power of the punch comes from a hip torque and centrifugal force. It is also important that you don’t tense your muscles until the VERY LAST moment.
