Fold your fist properly. The fact is that with an incorrectly folded fist, you have the risk of breaking your thumb and hurt your hand badly. How to fold a fist?

Put all your weight into the kick.It should not be the strength of one of your hands, but the entire weight of your body. The blow is struck, engaging at the same time the arm, and the shoulder, and the thigh, with practically the whole body.
Do not extend the elbow to the end, energy is expended on it, and your hand is in a vulnerable position, as a result the blow will be much weaker than it could be. You can simply fix the arm in a certain position - the angle of the elbow is 90 degrees and the arm is parallel to the floor, and the body can move.
Consider the boxing technique of striking with the right hand from the right side: the right leg is firmly on the floor, leaning on it, turn the body, starting from the waist. When this happens twisting, which transfers energy from the legs and body to the shoulders and arm. The loin is a kind of transition that transfers energy from one source to another, and then forms a single movement of the whole body.

Training is very important, because once in a dangerous situation without training, you can forget how to beat your fist, and in the end only aggravate your position. During your workout, your body remembers what it needs to do, and then, in a stressful situation, it will remember itself, without strict control on your part.
