Your power definitely comes from your hips so make sure u are putting your hips into every punch...also having a strong core will help so do some core strengthening exercises and hit a heavy bag

I agree with everyone else. It's hard to get into the habit of throwing your hips into every punch, and it takes practice. If you're not good enough at doing it yet, toss some weak jabs, and follow up with a heavy hit from your strong arm. I perfer using hooks because I like being in my opponents face. I guess this isn't a street fight though. :x But yeah, use your hips for power, as well as your back leg. You really have to use your whole body to maximize a punchs capability.

Make sure your not to tense throwing your punches.
They should be relaxed until you're about to impact, the velocity of your punch will make it stronger, and its harder to get velocity with your punches if you're tensing them slightly to get more strength.

Strength with no velocity is pushing someone it doesnt hurt.

Aswell as what everyone else said use your whole body.

You need to use a punching bag and try to get in the habbit of twisting your hips. Also doing exercises with you're abs and arms will help you and keep praticing and never give up
