Tsuki – The way I do it

Gert TsukiOnce I was asked, why I do my Punch the way I do. Most often, my Tsuki (Punch) resembles a combination between a vertical and a horizontal punch.

The answer is quite simple, it feels natural.

 

The best way to explain it is to compare my Tsuki with push-ups!

Yes, you read right, push-ups.

Try taking push-ups on the knuckles. Most people will perform them as shown in the picture below.
