To get power in your techniques, whether it's punching,
striking, blocking, kicking or throwing, you need certain
common components. But remember, all these different
facets of applying power must come together in a fraction
of a second, so you have to train yourself thoroughly
in how to make these things work separately and as
I will explain what each component does and how in
the end they are all linked together. To make
them work naturally and smoothly, you will need a body
that is relaxed and supple.

gyaku-zuki, with the hip retraction snapping the hand back,
imparting a whipping power to the strike.
