So what is it?

This is something that bothers me. Quite a few times in life I've been told that my punching is not ''karate punching'' that it's just ''boxing''.

That I don't do this twist here or that I don't punch from the hip there or that I punch from a guard and so on...

When I try to explain that it is a Karate punch because of the body mechanics behind it, the way I use my legs, my core and so on I get looked at funny by most and then I realize I'm wasting my time with those people.

But the general question here is. What makes a punch a Karate punch. What is the Karate technique for you.

I compare it to the "fighting stance" used in Judo/Jujitsu the position of the hands/arms is the same as in Judo, also the push/pull in Jdo mirrors what is used in karate. Kuzushi.

For me "boxing style" punching is punching and "karate style" punching is Stand-up grappling

No more answers? Let me clarify the question perhaps. What mechanic makes it ''Karate''???

Twisting? Punching from the hip (lol)? The way you use your hips in your school? Koshi? Go-tai?

Come on guys surely some of you have thought of this.
