Default Re: Whats wrong with bending at the waist to get more range?

Because you can't transfer your power, you can't rotate into the punch, you can't move backwards as effectively, you leave your body wide open, your neck isn't in a position to take a punch well and you can't breathe as effectively. Balance and efficient movement is super important for every athlete, you lose that when you bend at the waist. Only reason to ever do it is to get an opponent to attack you if they're being overly defensive or to psyche them out.
