the one inch punch uses the punching form of the internal arts, bottom 3 knuckles as opposed to other punches like the ones used in karate which use the top two knuckles,its taught in many arts but only at the very end to my knowledge, i know its taught in wing chun and tai chi, you might want to read very detailed books on the subject because it can be learnt from them regardless of what other people say, look lower down this forum and you will see another topic on the one inch punch where i explain the dynamics of the punch

Why 1-inch punch anyway? At that range and elbow strike would be much more effective. Besides, that is so close to an opponent that most strikes are kind of impractical anyway(in my mind). It's time to back away, or go for a take down or something.

the floating punch wont be done like how youve seen it demonstrated if youve seen it demonstrated, when demonstrated ppl put theyre hand really close to the opponent to show off at how much power it develops from short range, it can be used like a normal punch so it can work at any punching distance from the distance of your arm almost fully straightend to a distance where your arm is bent quite a lot, in a range where you can use your elbow and elbow would be better because its not that good at that distancing, you wouldnt be using maximum reach for it and its slower than an elbow

The 1 inch punch was made famous by bruce lee, if you want to learn it you could study Jeet Kune Do

the one inch punch is achieved i think by flipping ur power hand to the front of ur stance. when i hit the bag with a jab bout one inch off the bag it goes way harder and farther than hitting with my power hand the the back with no weight behind it. since i found this out i only fight that way now with power hand in front

Bruce Lee believe that the right hand should always be in front. Providing that you keep the knuckles of your lead hand below your shoulder and don't lock your hip, you should be able to generate more force than you will ever need. Turn your hip, throw the hand, extend the shoulder.

so is the one inch punch, if you know the mechanics. watch the video of bruce lee doing a one inch punch sometime. It's not complicated, it has very little application, but it's not complicated.
