How does the dedicated Uechi (or any other karate) practitioner gain power?

We want to hit hard. It does no good to whack an opponent and have that blow prove to be ineffective. In terms of hojo undo, etc. what exercises can one do to contribute to their development of striking power in both hands and legs (feet)?

Everyone who trains wants more power. Some are strong to begin with. Some can hit pretty strong already. My question to these individuals is always the same. "Do you want to hit harder"? The answer is simple but difficult to obtain. You have to realize where the power is coming from. It is not coming from the limbs. I refer to it as the power base. There are a few drills that will help develop this explosion I keep talking about. I go over this topic at great detail in my web site. Check it out. I hope it helps. Happy Trails Art Rabesa
