Findings in a recent study have changed the concept behind a powerful punch. A majority of the people used to believe that only a strong person or the one with immense muscle strength can punch the other person hard. However, the study suggests that the power completely depends on the anatomy of the brain.
A team of researchers from the Imperial College London and University College emphasized that the structure of the brain is responsible for producing the force of the punch, in case the other person is nearby.
The team involved two groups of participants, one of the group included well trained karate black belts and the other group included normal but physically fit people.
After a proper analysis, they discovered that the white matter in the brain was what connected the brain's regions with the ability to punch.
They concluded: "The power of a punch is not down to the strength of muscles but the timing, with synchronized movement between the wrist and shoulders essential".
However, scientists have not been able to provide with any evidences, which could be referred in context of white matter, that is if there are changes in the region, then would it affect the force of the punch or not. However, training has been suggested as important for all those who punch efficiently.
