It seems simple enough. However rarely does anyone actually seem to know what this even is or for that matter how to actually execute it. The motion involved in punches require absolute precision in order to preform correctly and the room for error is very tiny. Even the slightest error in the execution of a punch can take away all of the power like a house of cards falling in on itself because of one misaligned section. Anyway to explain how the whip part of a punch works we'll take a look at the basic physics of it.

    You've probably seen one of these before. Its called a Trebuchet. A very powerful catapult-like weapon (though much more powerful than a catapult) capable of launching extremely heavy projectiles for great distances. The concept is simple. A great amount of force is generated at one end and the resulting energy that is created in this movement is sent to the other end imbuing that side with this tremendous energy.

    In the case of the Trebuchet this force is generated by a massive weight which is dropped on one end. The energy created here causes the other end which is lighter to be, in essence, injected with that energy. This end becomes packed to the brim with absolutely tremendous amounts of energy. We can see this process vividly in this illustraion here:

    Now, take a look at that picture. Look closely. Is that not very much like a punch? Look again you may not see it at first. The main part of the trebuchet is similar to the body; the dropping of the weight on one end represents the turning of the hips; the sling ultimately represents the arm; the projectile at the very end of the sling - your fist. If it seems that the Trebuchet is very similar to say, a left or right hook, its because it most certainly is. In fact it is exactly analogous to these types of punches.

    So when we speak of "whipping" punches we are ultimately referring to these phyciscal principles. Its actually quite simple.

    1. the force generated at the turning of the hips -> 2. sends lots of energy into into your arm -> which 3. ultimately goes into your fist.

    Notice how this process is broken up into segements opposed to being one single movement. The force generated at the hips *must* come first. The reason it must come first is because if there is no energy created here then there will be none to send into the arm. Thus because of this there is always a slight delay between the turn of the hips and the slinging of the arm. That force must be created fully before it can be sent into the arm. You must wait for the energy to fully develop and once at its peak, send your arm on its way. If you send the arm along with the body as it turns you will not reach full power in your punch.

    Once sent to the arm, the energy of the body is then condensed into the small area of the fist. Thus the fist becomes literally packed to brim with this termendous energy. The weight of the body inside of your fist; a very scary kind of power, when one stops to think.

    However most fighters never end up able to pack their fists with that kind of energy. Their punching techniques are not harmonius with these basic principles and thus they can never achieve these levels of power. Specifically, what I have outlined here is only one part of how to execute a punch: the "whip" portion. There is more to it. But this is the most critical peice of information when one speaks of whipping punches.

    Have you ever seen Jack Dempsey punch? He is like a human Trebuchet. Something extra to think about. Why is he able to generate such great forces in his punches. What is he doing in his stance?
    A brilliant strategy for teaching fighters the physics of power punching and this why Dempsey put his weight on the front foot to generate weight for the whipping punch.
