Fold the fingers in, little finger firstPress the folded fingers tightly against palmFold in the thumb while tightening the knucklesEffective Punching
Punches should always impact exactly at right angles to the target. The wrist should remain straight; otherwise the punch will not only be effective, but the wrist damaged, too!
To avoid injuries during sparring, use the heel of the hand.
The heel of the hand does not mean the palm. Connect from the wrist itself.
