How to Generate Striking Power In Self Defense
One of the ways to generate striking power is to get stronger by utilizing the big lifts such as squats, dead lifts, overhead presses and bench presses. When you get stronger, you can generate more force.
Another way is to move your body weight, using a tool (elbow, knee, etc.) through a target of an attacker as shown in the video.
A third way is to step into the strike like you are throwing a baseball. Step & throw, or step and strike. This generates power by forcing you to move your body weight into the strike and automatically causes you to rotate your hips to generate incredible power.
