"Cycle punches

As stated above, cycle punching is more than just hitting an opponent with rolling blows. Cycle punching actually involves every other major concept in Wing Chun, including parrying, gate punching, rotation and often trapping. Therefore the motion of the arms in cycle punching is critical! To begin, the punch must not, as is often though, begin on centerline at your own chest. It is the motion of going to centerline that affords the parrying motion, and allows the continuation on into a gate punch. Rotation must also be added to cycle punches to provide power. However, this rotation should be minimal. Also, a punch is not finished after it reaches or does not reach its target. It is not useless until it re-chambers for another strike. A returning punch can be used to drop down and parry any incoming strikes to the lower gates, and can also serve to keep an opponent’s arm pinned to their side by dropping down in its cycle and hitting the elbow of the checked arm.

Another important concept to cycle punching is the concept of circularity. Whatever the circle may be, whether it is in downward motion to bat attacks downward, or vice versa, at least a slight circle should be kept in all motion at all time. Linearity requires stopping and re-starting of motion, something that takes far to long when we are striving for efficiency.

I realize nobody has touched this post for a while, but it caught my eye. The method that I train in specializes in chain punching. I've made about 11 hits per second. If you do want more information about it, feel free to email me toelio@aol.com

11 hits in one second wake up your dreaming. It is bozo claims like this that give the arts a bad name...

I understand if you think I'm dreaming, most people do. I'm not talking about punches necessarily, just hits. I know it sounds wierd, but I'm nothing special when it comes to this method. 16 per second is the record. There are different ways to flow your hits and different ways to hold a fist and stand that make it possible. But of course, it sounds too good to be true, so you have to assume it is, I don't blame you. It's nice to know that you're so passionate about martial arts, ramcalgary. I know how you feel sometimes. Once again, if anyone is interested feel free to email me.

If you want to know the truth, it's all in how you hold your fist and the technique of it. Training will make you faster, but at least with me, there was only so much I could do before I tried out a method I read in a magazine. The stuff for it is pretty expensive, but now I make 11 hits per second. If you want the website, it's http://www.thespeedman.com
