Nonetheless, the point remains -- the power of a punch comes from more than the arms. In fact, you could have some really strong muscly guy punch with ONLY his arm-strength, but without utilizing his legs, his hips, and shoulders he tiny little shrimp with good punching technique could pack more oomph. And while I do agree that powerful/fast arms do help, I still would say that they're secondary.
