We have had a few requests for lessons on the superman punch. So I wanted to post one for all of you. The superman punch is more of an advanced move not geared too much towards the beginner, however it is a good lesson for the beginner to workup to and also master.
The superman punch is also know sometimes as the cobra punch, or the diving punch is a technique that involves feigning a forward front leg kick then quickly snapping the leg back while throwing a right cross. This is how it got it’s name as you look like superman as you throw the punch. The lunging adds extra power to the punch therefore making it extremely effective.
The superman punch is used a lot in kickboxing but has become more popular with the emergence in popularity of MMA.
