MMA Beginner Series: The Cross

The second strike that is learned is the cross. The first power punch in a budding martial artist’s arsenal, it is vital to understand that the power comes from the waist down.

People who try to arm punch will be very disappointed with their impact. Instead, they need to learn to use the power from driving through the legs to rotate their hips, transferring weight from the rear leg to the lead leg and by extension their fist.
