Oi tsuki video
Info about "Oi tsuki video"
Oi tsuki (lunge punch) is a Karate punch where the leg and fist are on the same side. The chamber, or preparatory position, of Oi tsuki is with the striking hand retracted to the hip or ribs, in a fist, with the palm facing up. The punch travels in a linear path directly toward the target, with the elbow behind the fist, tracing the fist’s path. The hand remains palm up until the last two inches of the punch, when it rotates to face down. Ideally, the beginning of the fist’s rotation coincides with the initial contact with the target.
The elbow remains on the bottom of the arm. Permitting it to rotate to the side or upward exposes it to injury from either self-inflicted hyperextension, or from a stiff block by the opponent. Contact is made with knuckles of the fore-fist.
