Under the ear is a valid blow that hits the back of the ear (not a foul)

Under the ear is a type of punch used in martial arts such as boxing, and literally means below the ear.

If this vital point is attacked, the sense of balance will be impaired, making it difficult to stand.

Unlike the back of the head, under the ear is not a foul hit.


Effect of under-the-ear


There are semicircular canals located under the ears and near the back of the ears.


The semicircular canals are the organs that control the human sense of balance.

When this organ goes out of order, it becomes difficult to stand normally.

This is why it is easy to collapse when a blow hits the back of the ear or below the ear, which is near the semicircular canal.


because it can be easily defeated

In martial arts such as boxing, there are punches that aim at this vital point.

That punch is called the under-the-ear.



How to hit under the year


The typical way to hit under the year is with a hook.


To punch the back of the ear of an opponent facing you

The trick is to release the hook with your arm slightly open (swinging).

Of course, the angle of the hook will change depending on the distance to the opponent.

What is the strongest punch in boxing?


Competitions called striking martial arts such as boxing and kickboxing

The strongest punch is the right straight (or left straight if you are left-handed).

The reason for this is that the punch utilizes the movement of the whole body and is thrown with your own body weight, so it has far more destructive power than other punches.


However, the most destructive punch is a straight punch.

Judging from the KO rate and the degree of danger to the human body, hooks aimed at the temple and uppercuts aimed at the jaw fired with the dominant hand are also dangerous.



Personally, I think a hook aimed at the temple is the strongest punch.

Straight punches come from the front, so they are easy to defend even though they have destructive power.

A hook is a punch that comes from the side of a hardened guard, so you can target gaps in the opponent’s consciousness.



The most effective punch, the strongest punch, the fastest punch (this is a jab), etc.

The debate about the strongest punch has been going on for a long time.
