One of the more common physics debates in karate relates to proper punching. In this debate, there are two common schools of thought:
1)karate punches are strongest at full extension and teach “following though” as a power component; vs.
2)karate strikes are strongest at approximately 75% extension. I put the information from Walker (FN1) forward not opining my own calculations, but merely to report the results of this article and synthesize the stated results with common practice.
