**Punch Stroke (Charles Burchill, MB) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfSsFl63VzI
     Charles says: Traditional or ‘Punch’ stroke is closely related to the Canadian stroke,
         the stroke does not need to be a correction stroke and can be used from the bow, stern, or solo.  
        The stroke is very short with the power being provided with a punch out and down
