Power has a simple enough definition: it is always mass x acceleration. The faster you can hit and the bigger you are the more power you generate. But that’s not the whole story. Real power comes from the ability to synchronize your body, using the strength of all the different muscle groups to create harmonious, effortless movements that concentrate speed and strength and amplify mass on small areas. Pushing someone using the entire palm of your hand, for example, is ‘softer’ than pushing someone using the exact same force but only the front two knuckles of a closed fist. The smaller surface area presented by the latter concentrates the power you can deliver even though the force is exactly the same. Power is all about synchronization of movement, fluidity and focus as well as body positioning and superior adaptive strategy.
