Greetings Hanshi, Kyoshi, Sensei and Deshi,
My thoughts on the Chambered Fist
Technique of the Week: Chambered Fist
Keep the chambered fist tight, deep in the pocket and square, not turned. The fist should be parallel with the deck and not bent up or down at the wrist. The fist should be 100% chambered and not drift forward between moves. Keep tension in the chambered position to achieve maximum stroke and power for the released punch. "Load up the Punch."
