Thanks for sharing excellent topic.

When I train someone a solid punch I look very close to see if there is any reverse shock evident. If there is a bounce back then the energy has not hit at 100% efficiency.

Also any twist of the punching bag indicates a loss of efficient energy.

The evidence of a push motion or too much of a tap is observed then more adjustments in form and technique need to be adjusted or questioned.

A good way to describe how a Wing Chun punch should be done, is described as the way a hammer hits a nail, we all know what happens when it hits and slips the center of the nail; ouch!

Wing Chun punches coming out from (a stationary position) the center line also along the centre line connecting with the target is done with a type of whiplash motion (such as what a snake does when it strikes at it's target) throwing the neck backwards. It does create a powerful fast punch but can have consequences on the back of the neck by damaging it.

This is why a forward motion with a step forward coordinated with the punch and curving the spine and head forward is preferred. In this way the total spine is activated instead of only a small section behind the neck.

This all conforms with the triangle strength and the forward force of the Wing Chun style.
