Keepin’ them straight – the knuckles

Onegai shimasu Hanshi, Kyoshi, Sensei, and Deshi,
Be certain that your punch is landing with the first two knuckles. Because of the angle of your view it is difficult to see exactly what is happening. But, from an overhead camera:
This in incorrect - just the middle knuckle is landing.
This is correct – the first two knuckles landing at the same time.
We know that the mirror is the most valuable tool in the dojo – but this is something that you must work on with your training partner.
