Bruce Lee was legendary for his incredible power and speed and revolutionized many ways of thinking about moving in martial arts with greater efficiency, strength, speed, and power. The Bruce Lee one inch punch.

Bruce Lee's notorious one-inch punch demonstration became one of the most celebrated blows in the world and certainly a daring feat of strength to many.

He literally could send a grown man hurling across a room from this devastating exhibition of raw strength, speed, and explosive power.

It’s amazing that all his power was seemingly generated within one inch and with no telegraphing or cocking energy first – just pure explosive power outwards from ground zero. bruce lee workout

Here's a quick video showing and exhibition of the Bruce Lee one inch punch.

Bruce Lee One Inch Punch Secrets


Bruce Lee's incredible punching power didn't come from just his arm strength or hip power as many will tell you. This is what most students trying to duplicate his power fail to see.


In this article, I'd like to give you my take on how he generated his ferocious power and give you some ideas if you want to know how to do the one inch punch.

His energy was initiated right from his very toes that then spiraled fiercely upwards through his entire body and core to finally extend outwards from his fist with a wicked release of power within a millisecond.

You'll understand some important nuances of the Bruce Lee one inch punch that I believe were the most important driving factors behind his ability to generate his tremendous crushing power.

Of course, first and foremost, perhaps we should look at how Bruce Lee’s one-inch punch and true power came from his intellect before we start analyzing his actual physical movements.

Bruce Lee's Blueprint of Energy & Power

I think you'll see that he obviously had a clear blueprint embedded in his imagination of the exact timing and trajectory of the energy he would ignite within milliseconds.

Most students are taught to compress their power upon impact. Their entire structure usually moves downward and locks down even further with the exhalation of their breath.

Even with punching with complete follow-through, traditionally taught ways of punching look completely different than when you learn to EXPAND outward with power that's precisely matched with congruent breath power that expands instead of compresses.

Watch the videos carefully and you’ll see Bruce Lee’s energy and power EXPAND outward.

What’s fascinating is that Bruce Lee's trademark combat sounds he made throughout his movies were not at all like a compression of energy and breath like most martial artists make when they attack with the usual compressed and harsh “kiai”.

No, the Bruce Lee “cat like” sound was intrinsically linked to distinct trajectories of energy and breath patterns that directed his congruently powerful and quick movements.

Most of this vocal expressions were expansive and they often curved and arched diabolically like the sound a dragon's tail might make whipping outward and hooking flesh on it's way back with its barbed scales.

Inside the CoreForce Energy Training Academy, we explore in depth his sound and energy trajectory, his breath pattern, and his phenomenal body mechanics and training.

You’ll immediately realize how intertwined and completely united and congruent all these components all were. One can not be separated from the other.

Expansion vs Compression Power

Human being's natural tendencies are to execute their “explosive power” with both compression of their breath and entire musculature. This creates too much tension and consequently dissipates your power greatly in the intended direction drastically.

Doesn't an explosion burst outwards – not inwards?

Once you answer that question, you may begin looking at Bruce Lee's one inch punch differently and perhaps see it as an expansion of force instead of a compression of energy.

Furthermore, you'll see that Bruce Lee's body is not locked down with compression after striking.

You'll see that his energy is an outwards explosion that also completely recoils back afterwards so he can do again over and over with equally devastating power.

Keep watching the quick clip within this article above closely and you'll see that he isn't locked down with compression at all in the traditional sense. Doesn't it look expansive when you actually think about it now?

CoreForce Energy Expansion Power

Expanding your energy instead of compressing it is one of the underlying concepts that distinguishes CoreForce Energy super strength training from any traditional strength and power training and is a complete paradigm shift. It engages your core completely differently.

No matter what your sport is, try training thinking about expanding your energy outwards instead of compressing it inwards or downwards.

You'll clearly see the effortless strength of CoreForce Energy in this quick video showing how it can be used in martial arts.

It almost looks like I'm not doing anything until you see the differences of using CoreForce Energy and using muscle and force to try to accomplish the same thing. Then – the difference is massive.

The famous Bruce Lee one inch punch would send a man flying across the room upon unleashing the tremendous force of his striking power.

Here, I've taken it a step further to show the tremendous force you can generate with CoreForce Energy without the “luxury” of having your fist one inch away from an opponent – but at “ground zero” with my hand completely touching my “opponent”.

When experience CoreForce Energy live and right in front of you, it's almost completely undetectable. It's extremely stealthy and exudes resilient power because it doesn't exhibit the normal giveaway signals of telegraphing that always come from trying to use force and muscle.

Live, you wouldn't even see my eyes give away the tremendous force about to explode through you. And, yet, in the video, it almost looks like I'm not doing hardly anything – until you clearly hear how heavy my 300+lb dummy when it crashes back and forth.

Especially in self-defense, this would be especially life-saving as you don't need to be telegraphing your assailant any of your intentions in the slightest degree.

Yet, you would need the ability to knock someone clear across the room without breaking a sweat if you wanted to.

In future videos, I'll show you how a woman can exude this same kind of power.

The CoreForce Energy principles are certainly not exclusively just for creating super strength or gaining phenomenal striking power for martial arts.

It is a system accelerating peak performance for just about anything you do in life from the extreme physical to mental focus to even art, sculpting, and music – to even voice projection and magnetizing stage presence.

I'm not using anywhere near the full force of power that you can exude with CoreForce Energy in this video.

It's meant to demonstrate the phenomenal strength you can move with from a completely relaxed stance.

A person or opponent is only a weight or obstacle. If you looking to explode with effortless power to walk through opponent, kettlebells, or Olympic weights, then you'll learn quickly how to do it in CoreForce Energy with techniques you'll see no where else and without years of practice.

To Your Strength and Mastery,
