I noticed that power was not being delivered when it should because the punch was being 'calibrated' for the person holding on to the hand mitt. This means that 'kime' or strike focus was not occuring.
When proper striking focus happens, the technique is sound, the muscles lock up properly, and the power of the practitioners' legs are delivered into the hand mitt. Otherwise the punch may look powerful, but does not end up hitting the target powerfully. So, when you're aiming at a hand mitt, focus on the face of the mitt and one/two inches behind it.
