Kid Power

In martial arts, many people buy special uniforms that will produce more sound because of the special fibers to produce snap. At the Three Coral Dojo, our students use the inexpensive 100% cotton light weight uniforms. When a snap is heard in these, it shows the level of power a student has. These are not Black Belts but a green and a brown belt. These punches show the level of training that our students have. When looking at the power of a punch we are dealing with Kinetic Energy which physics defines in the following:

KE= 1/2ma2 where m= mass and a= acceleration.

Kinetic energy will be transformed into friction, heat and sound so the sound you hear is based on the kinetic energy. The more kinetic energy the more snap.
