7. PUNCHING TECHNIQUES



Straight Punch



In Tiger Kung Fu, the fist is formed by curling the four fingers

inward toward the palm face, with the thumb gently pressing over

the index and mid fingers. Contact is made with the index and mid

knuckles. Common targets include the head, heart, groin and ribs.

Because it travels in a straight line it has the added advantage of

being very quick. As such it is commonly used as a feigning move

to distract the opponent’s guard and open up opportunities for other strikes.



1 - Use as opening strike

Example – Straight Punch attack



1 2




After seizing Red’s neck, Blue pulls Red inward for a Straight Punch. The Straight Punch can be

aimed at the opponent’s eyes, nose or mouth, depending on the nature of injury you wish to inflict.

As the Straight Punch travels in a straight-line it is the fastest of the follow up attacks. However,

because an opponent is likely to raise his hands in an endeavor to break free, the Straight Punch may

also therefore not be readily available in most cases.



Be flexible – Besides seizing the neck, Blue could have seized Red’s wrist and pulled him inwards

for the strike too.



Example – Straight Punch feign with Uppercut



1 2




In this case, Red maintains a frontal guard that would make it hard for a Straight Punch to get

through on its own. Blue feigns the Straight Punch, then follows up with an Uppercut to hit Red in

the mid-section.
