About Bruce Lee's 1 and 3 Inch Power Punch

James W. DeMile is one of the few people to whom Bruce Lee ever taught the power punch; not because it is difficult, but because Bruce wanted to keep it an exclusive technique. At the time, the author agreed with Lee. But now, he believes it is time the striking power and techniques be taught to all who wish to learn them.

In this specialized training manual, DeMile presents a simple but organized approach to one of Bruce Lee's dynamic techniques.

The material is presented in such a way that ANYONE CAN LEARN THIS PUNCH EFFECTIVELY, regardless of his martial arts background.


To my knowledge, I am one of the few people to whom Bruce Lee ever taught the Power Punch, not because it is difficult to do, but simply because Bruce wanted to keep it an exclusive technique. Although I agreed with him at the time, I now feel that the techniques should be taught to all those who wish to develop their striking power without having to dedicate themselves to the martial arts.

It is my contention that although the Power Punch, also referred to as the Floating Punch, fits in well and complements a student of the martial arts, it can be learned and executed by the average individual wanting only to effectively strike an opponent if it should become necessary. My experiences have shown me that in any physical encounter it is more often how well you can strike rather than how many martial arts techniques you know that will determine the winner.

I am not showing this technique to shortcut what a person may need for self defense; I am simply offering it as a primary tool to help the individual gain confidence in his personal capabilities.

Please read carefully all the instructions and understand the principles of each move before going on to the next step. Your success or failure in learning this strike will depend not only on how well you can do the physical and mental exercises, but on how well you understand the over-all principles that make this a dynamic and unique technique.

About James W. DeMile

In 1960, James W. DeMile began his martial arts career in Seattle, Washington, under the direction of Bruce Lee. He had the pleasure of assisting Bruce Lee in developing many of the principles of the original Jeet Kune Do.
