i don't see what's impressive about that.

it's not a punch, it's a shove. the force is coming from his legs, and the victim is standing in a neutral, relaxed, unsteady stance, easy to knock over

To be perfectly fair though, a good punch involves your whole body (which includes your legs)

That's the point, efficient use of muscle tension channeled through one inch of acceleration and force, and the surface area of a fist. He didn't walk into him and shove, he tensed his arm, leg and core and struck him.

In regards of the unsteady stance, the subject of the one inch punch was in heiko-dachi (Open parallel stance);. Reasonably solid and sturdy, but designed to transition to other stances and movements. He was knocked over.

The subject of the six inch punch, didn't do that. Because if he was in a solid stance, he could have been seriously hurt instead of just launched some distance away (Since he wouldn't have naturally moved with the force that was incoming). Imagine being punched so hard you fall over backwards. Now imagine that, but your feet are glued to the ground. Not pretty.

If you think a punch is only with your arm, then your punches will be weak.

You would get more force out of your punches and wont tire yourself out as much by using your whole body for a punch as appose to just using your arms only. the part you failed to notice in the one inch punch that you claim is not impressive is that he was able to use his body enough to channel his force through only 1 inch of motion. not to mention that he was touching the guy as is

the 'shove' is delivered through the surface area of bruce's clenched fist

check yourself, go look at a ruler and realize how far an inch is and why that MIGHT look like a shove. also, the force from every solid punch begins in the legs and travels up to and through the arm and fist.

Well if you want to punch well, you put your body into it.

If you knew Bruce Lee was going to punch you, you'd ******* brace yourself.

I wouldn't. I would let my knees collapse as soon as I felt the punch so that my chest wouldn't soak up all the shock of having a wrecking ball **** my ribcage.

***** you're overestimating yourself

I don't enjoy being punched. I would crumble like a rag doll . It's the best way to absorb shock of being punched. On a good day I don't like being punched. On no day do I feel like being punched by a professional fighter.

Anyone who knows how to throw a punch knows that the force has to come from the entire body in order to have the strongest impact. It's not a shove, because his fist only makes contact for a split second, and his feet never even budge despite immense opposing force, indicating a rock-solid stance. It's a good thing his volunteers were standing neutral too, otherwise they would have been seriously injured from a follow-through punch. It's better to allow the momentum to carry through rather than taking all of that force in the chest.   
   
It's not Bruce Lee's raw strength, but his martial precision that made him world-famous.

His precision, speed and his philosophy.

punching power mainly comes from the hips and legs. arm strength helps, but it is not the primary "power source" of the punch.
