The one/Three inch punch is mostly applied from a finishing grappled or trapped postion where your arm has no time to recoil into one fully punch, so the quick sudden explosion of this technique can be critical.

I have not learnt this technque however i have a analytical eye on the concepts of JKD. i am beginner/intermidiate at my local JKD school and i have been going there for 4 weeks now an di am hoping we could learn this concept on the one inch punch.

A question for you guys!

When i do learn this technique from my Instructor, could i use my palm or even with my first 2 knuckles,becase correct me if im wrong arnt you suppose to use the last 3 knuckles and use an upward motion to do this technique, i am worried because i fractured my 5th metacarpul or'the boxers bone'4 so-to-speak 4~5 months ago , and i am quiet hsitant on applying pressure here.

Thanks for taking your time in reading my problems
Kyle
Hopefully i can use my first 2 knuckles

I thnk I know what you mean (stand-up grappling?), but just to clarify, 1-3" punch will not be very effective in groundfighting. Especially from the bottom, as you will not be able to apply proper body mechanics to it.

As far as using the heel palm.....I guess so, but the strike derives a lot power from two things:

*wrist action
*small contact area

Heel palm wrist action is even more limited compared to the punch, and the heel palm contact area is larger, which will not maximize impact like a knuckle strike will.

First two knuckle use for the 1-3" punch seems much more useful. Similar overall mechanics, but you would have to reverse the wrist action to point the knuckles down and into the target instead of up as the 'standard' 1-3" punch is done.

Up and into the target (as far as solar plexus shots) will generally cause more discomfort due to the more severe contraction of the diaphragm muscles. I train that way.
