Before all the die hards jump in let me give my two cents worth. A quick, explosive punch to the nose followed by immediate movement either escape or to next technique is probably the most bang for the buck. Japanese swordsmen practiced iaido (I think that's the term) of a quick draw and execution of technique. Practice stepping quickly into attack distance on the bag and immediately firing off a hard straight punch. Protect your hands with light bag gloves and strengthen wrists. Practice a hard solid fist like a knot of wood. Practice with either side and different distances, lead hand and trailing hand (front punch, reverse punch). Most effective if opponent is coming into you or at least not pulling away. Did I say hard fist and strong wrists? Now let the experts chime in with the rest.
