There is no honor in fighting in the streets. I mean what does it prove and what does it accomplish. Self defense is a different matter entirely. If your noit getting paid to fight than you are just storkin' your ego with people on the street that know little about fighting.

You wont learn a thing really about fighting on the internet. I mean, it might help you to practice but the only way you really learn to fight is to fight. Find a gym near you and get to work if you want to learn to fight.

well, your motives are strange, but to increase power a good exercise is to hit a heavy bag. continuous work on a heavy bag will increase the power of your punches.

the triceps are the muscles with propell your arm in a punch, so try to work these up (press ups strengthen the triceps). but power comes primarily from shifting your weight. your arm is just like a pole than you channel your weight through to hit the opponent.

power isnt all muscular, it is technique. master the technique of punching and it will pack much more power.

first of all, how old are you?

and saying that you're new to boxing, then don't you already have a coach?

remember, boxing can be used as self-defence, but martial arts is more well rounded - providing you find the right guide. and boxing competitively is completely different than what generally happens in street fights.

honestly if your not an ******* to people i don't see a reason that anybody would just come up to you and start ****

but if it does happen a good way is to just get your adrenaline pumping. Just get pissed off and go into like a frame of mind when you feel your gunna go crazy

remember this would suck in a boxing match but in a street fight just go wild with hooks and get your weight behind them.

controlling the adrenaline rush is part of the craft and science of fighting. acting like you're crazy is one thing, actually getting crazy is another and would likely lead to worse consequences. being level headed enough to avoid fights in general is the best strategy. 'cause it's the most efficient.

yes no matter how decent of a person u are, you will always get clowns tryin to start **** for no reason. it happens where i live on the regular.

but i cant wait for the next person who starts **** with me. becoming a boxer has shown me how pathetic these 'hard' guys really are. they will throw a uneducated punch and i will just counter. ko.

i dunno why you would want more power for a streetfight....bc that just increases the damage to your hand and chance of breaking it if you aren't wearing gloves.

If you're bareknuckle, as long as your wrist is aligned straight and correctly, the punch is gonna do damage.

with out peope crying and trying to preach to you not to fight ,maybe half of these dudes grew up under rocks.........







any way throwing a punch has nothing to with your muscles and how big your arms are its all in your legs and how well you torque in to your punches from the hip ,learn how to throw proper punches with proper leverage and you will see your power increase tremendously ,work on your legs your legs and lower body are everything in a punch thats where the engery starts and generates threw the end of your fist from the ground up.

the best way to increase punch power is to relax when throwing your shots. If you tense your whole arm and dig a shot into someone it wont be as powerful as if you relax and let physics handle the power.

Tis True what he sayd. Happened to my brother the other day, he went to the shops and four kids went after him and gave him a hiding, for what reason, there wasn't one.

Anyway back on topic, in my years I have fought on the streets, parks and school and I never felt good after hurting people, now I try and stop fighting in the street, but if someone to start a fight with me and had offended me highly or just hit, i'm sure I would retaliate.
