It would be MORE useful to be able to hit hard while executing good footwork as opposed to standing still and gathering your "chi" in preparation to hit.





I agree, from my point of view I don't see how I could ever use it in a practical situation. It is an interesting demo though. For me it falls into the category of moves that are visually impressive but I'm not sure of their practicality.




Lets say your opponent has you in a Muay Thai clinch, maybe you can put your hand right next to his throat and execute a one inch punch before he can get his knee up. If you hit his adams apple in the right way, you could hurt him enough to let go of the clinch maybe even do serious damage to his throat.. There are many different ways you can use the one inch punch..come on man, think! Being creative during battle is the essence of JKD
