I vote for the hammerfist. Not only do you have arm, shoulder and back muscles and the required body mechanics working for you, there's also a little thing called gravity that helps with the acceleration.

I am a orthadox boxer, and for me my left hook is the strongest.

I wonder how many of you have tested these opinions conclusively?

Or are these techniques the punches that YOU do best, which of course doesn’t mean that they are the most powerful punch. Merely YOUR most powerful punch.

Surely to be able to state what is the most powerful punch, a person needs to be at least competent in executing all the variants?

Indeed, an excellent question. I've consistently broken more boards with a hammerfist than with a palm heel, shuto or reverse punch. But your point is well-taken, and would apply to any technique. Each individual is different, and the hammerfist works best for a short, 50-year old mesomorph like myself.

Hands-down the strongest punch is an axe-handle (putting hands together, NOT interlocking fingers, and using all your weight to come down on opponents neck/back). It is also almost impossible to use. For practical application, I'd go with the reverse punch. It usually catches people off-guard and has all your momentum behind it.

with all the fingers interlocked?! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

A bit too slow too be all that powerful surely?

Also little hip drive, or shoulder rotation.

But it works on TV i suppose...
