In this video, I answer the question of where to strike with your punches: to the center or the side of the chin? I first got this question on my video BOXING for SELF DEFENSE: Boxing champ KNOCKS OUT bully. I answered briefly in the comments but it deserves a more in-depth look.
Where to strike: side or center of the chin?
The short answer, they both work and it depends on a number of factors which is best. In the video, I try to keep it short and only mention type of punch, type of impact and angle of the punch, but there are obviously many more. The video is an introduction to the subject, not the final word. So take what you can from it and see if it helps your training. Disregard the rest.
If you have questions, type them in the comments and I’ll see what I can do to answer them.
