The Vertical Punch
To perform the vertical punch, start with the arm in the centerline with the arm in a 90-degree angle. To launch the punch you push the elbow upwards forcing the hand forward. In the end of the strike you do a upwards rocking movement with the wrist exposing the three lower knuckles. The rocking motion gives you more focus, power and less recoil.
So the reason for punching with the 3 lower knuckles instead off the 2 top knuckles is because we punch with the hand vertically and to avoid injury in the wrist we try to keep it as straight as possible. In all martial art the goal is to transport the power from the hip trough the shoulder to the target via the fist, the best way to do that is with a straight arm from the shoulder out to the fist. Never extend the arm fully, letting the elbow stop the punch, that can cause injury.
The chain punch is a bunch off single punch pot together as a rain off punches delivered after each other in a fast motion. When a wing chun practitioner have been attacked he redirect the incoming attack and counter with a punch, if he hits his target he just keep on punching. If the opponent moves in any direction the wing chun practitioner just change direction too and keep attacking. So the chain punch is delivered when he have hit the target with the first punch. The chain punch is not about senseless throwing away 10 — 20 punches in the air wasting energy.
