I would like to see as many contribute as possible, so please supply only one principle or idea per post. Any one of us could easily get carried away and by ourselves list everything we know (individually) that adds to power of technique.

I begin with, wind up or travel or whatever you want to call it. Meaning raring back and cocking your arm, then swinging wildly and widely in hay maker fashion. Arm or leg traveling great distance to create acceleration and speed.

It may not be the most efficient way to supply power, but has been bar tested and time proven for centuries. Certainly makes technique easier to evade, intercept, and more difficult to strike accurately with.

But no way of power punching looks better on camera, which is why the movies continue to use it when producing fight scenes for the screen.

What Kenpo principles are violated if any with this approach?
