    Default How to take a punch

    Dear Kenpo brothers and sisters:

    I'd like ask you for your input on the best ways to train to take a punch.
    Should you be "stung frequently and hurt occasionaliy" ala Bruce Lee or is there a "secret" to the art of taking a punch that goes beyond the physical?

    Maybe Dr. John could wade into this topic and share some insight with us.
    I'm sure that your stance has a lot to do with it but I suspect that correct mental preparation is essential as well.

    Well I wrote an entire chapter on this back in 81 in "The Master's Kicking Guide". It was on "how-to-create an Iron Shield.

    I'll go and look at it and get back.

    I wrote it because Mike Echanis had methods so good that he could have a vehicle driven over his with no injuries. So I learned the methods because it was fun and different.

    We do a similar drill. Standing casually and practice pushing on different body parts and rolling with the motion.
