I was asked a question recently about the punch in L Stance a question that totally threw me as to be honest I was always told this.
When in L stance executing the reverse punch the leading leg was the one in front and the punch was called reverse punch, So I have always taught this this way.
As the student asked and the fact he had herd different I began to question my own knowledge of it and searched for an answer.
After looking at the CD's ITF and the Encylopedia it states -
The leading leg is the one with the most weight on ie Back Leg and the punch is in fact called an obverse punch..... WOW
So I found my answer but I asked a Master who also was from the same original group as me and he stated that the independents generally call it reverse punch and my way was how they generally teach. I asked him who is right then? The reply no one really as if you were independent it would be your way but if you are ITF you have to teach it the ITF way so no confusion amounst ITF...
Question: Why is the movement taught these two ways or have I been misinformed
