Ok how fast can you punch? For the average martial artist, you should be able to do 3 punches in 1 second (karate style in horse stance) For the advanced it should be at least 5 and if you want to go for the world record...I think its 9

Full locked, focused punches? Or fairly unpowerful but fast? I know you're supposed to do both together but when I start trying to go very fast I find it hard to get a decent lock and focus.

What good are 9 punches under 1 second with one arm going to do? Define a full punch!

It doesn't matter how many you can do in a second. It is what happens in that second that counts.

In the Wing Chun technique the 'straight blast' a large number of fast, light punches are used to break an opponents rythm or force them off balance. Doing this I can do 7/second. With full force boxing jabs I can do 4/second.
