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.

There are many kinds of strength as I often write about and by working on all of them a little each day, their synergy begins giving you vast powers that don't come when you concentrate only on one attribute at a time – hence the word “synergy” is engaged.

Reinforcing all the qualities of strength through time is how you get more in touch with them and learn to master them all. The qualities of strength of mind and heart are the very ones that make your physical being exude muscular power. And, if you practice them every, day, they will get stronger and begin appearing in the way you talk, walk, and express your passion and inspiration to people. Without a doubt, you'll lift more weight and be physically stronger than you ever thought possible because of it. It's the road to take for peak performance in all you do and will bring you great happiness for building something that is lasting.

If you think for a second that that kind of thinking is Pollyanish gibberish, think how powerless you feel when you're emotionally hurt and angry compared to the strength that emits from every pour when your heart and thoughts radiate with happiness in all the things you do and think -here gratitude and well-being abound.

That's why it's important to master your mind and emotions as well as your physical strength. What good is muscular strength if you've left out character and a positive outlook that can inspire all around you? You'll die lonely and weak in more ways than one if you don't begin building other kinds of strength.

I had the most incredible parents. But, like all children didn't really realize the magnitude until later in life. They instilled in me great discipline and nurtured many kinds of strengths in the most loving ways. The way they did that is a whole article in itself.

But they taught me that you must discipline your mind to see the good things every day. Especially in this day and age where the news is relentlessly telling us how bad every facet of our world is, we need to erect impenetrable castle walls to defend our spirit against non-stop assaults on our positive outlook. That takes strength and discipline.

Our strength and vibrational health need defenses erected that can withstand the constant onslaught and we must be master and commander of what we put into our minds.

One of my most prized possessions is a wrinkled, stained, and torn poem that was one of my Mothers favorites and I will give it to you below. She kept it on the piano where she taught and inspired hundreds of students to play through the years while gently nurturing them to develop strength of character by getting involved in many other facets of their lives.

I had it framed and it sits in my office on top of my grand piano. It's no wonder music and strength go together as I teach in CoreForce Energy super strength training.

Building the great pyramids were built by putting one stone in place at a time. Just know that each day you're piling stones for your own monuments that either represent strength and positive outlooks or negative and pessimistic weakness of spirit. You have a choice which pile of stones you add to create your lasting moment of physical, emotional, and character strengths.

For me, I choose words like below to be the stones I stack up each day to create character and improve physical strength. I hope you will find passion and strength in these words as I do every day.
