Default How do I learn to use my hips for a punch? I find it very hard to learn!

Any drills advice etc to help me "get" how to use my hips in a punch?

My problem is that I cant control my hips without some kind of mental cue e.g. putting out a ciggerette is a mental cue that gets my hips working, but it only works some of the time I think my hips havnt been used much and I dont have much control over them basically.

This is so hard for me to learn despite lots of practice and my tuition isnt great but its all I can afford right now, so any help on this would be greatly apreciated!!!

if you stand sideways how can you not rotate your hips with your punches...your back hand is suppose to be moved by your backfoot which inturn will rotate your hips....your fist is just the delivery unit

Lift your heels and twist on your toes.

Actually, "putting out a cigarette" is the perfect mental image.

Hi thanks this helped a bit.

I was trying to learn how to punch from a 3/4 stance not a side on stance but it seems easier from the side on stance.

I was punching using evrything but my hips, so I was rotating my legs, my obliques (midsection) but my hips were just being dragged along rather than supplying the brute force they are supposed to.

When I do manage to get it right and use my hips my torso whips and the punch is fast and powerful.

Stand on paint cans. Get in your stance, then put paint cans under your feet- stand on them and punch. You'll find that, once you can't walk with your punches (which is just lying to yourself about your balance), you'll learn how to shift your weight on your feet and turn your hips. That will keep you on balance and make you punch properly. Or you will fall down.
