Control failing to pick up punches in Wii Fit Rhythm Boxing

Over the past couple of days my Wii has started failing to pick up the occasional punch in Wii Fit Rhythm Boxing. It happens with either of my (two) controllers, but always with the controller and not the nunchuck. I'll just be punching away, and do an obvious right punch, and it either doesnt register at all, or occasionally happens picks it up really late, maybe on the recoil. I have changed the batteries, checked the positioning of the sensor and the cable and connection. Any other suggestions of what the problem might be or other test I might be able to do to narrow it down further?

Thanks in advance.

    Hmm dont know. i did however get the following response back from Nintendo ...

    "Hold the controller horizontal with the button facing you and bang it down on a flat surface three times. This should re-locate the accelerometer. Just re sync the controller and all should be well."

    Surprised they recommend bashing their product against the table, but so far it seems to have worked.

    Wii remote works fine but will not punch at all with the nun chuck, I have tried to punch with both fist at the same time and always get the right punch with remote to work but nothing with nunchuck, I have switched the nunchuck out also and still does nothing.

    Do you get the same problem when you use the Nunchuks in Boxing on the Wii Sports game?

Is there a different technique used to hitting a double-end punching bag?

The rhythm is completely different - other bag styles don't punch back. Training with a double end punching bag will teach you to bob and weave, slip and duck, keep your hands up and to move your head.

How To Win Every time

How To Get Silver Gloves:

Once you beat Matt (Grand Champion), you'll be able to wear silver boxing gloves. To get the silver gloves, team 1-button when the screen becomes black before a boxing match.

How To Win Every time:

Sway from side to side as if they were dodging. Swing when your opponent throws a punch in slow motion.

Good Boxing Skills:

Note that the hands are not tied Wii? Hit back. If done correctly, the Wii is going to hand around your opponent and sock him (or her) right in the temple! Uppercuts and blows to the legs are good shots, too.

Wii Fit Rhythm Boxing: So right hand holds wiimote, left hand holds nunchuk. Right hand punches register every time. Left hand puncheshardly register ever. I don't think it's my coordination; I'm giving it...

I had the same problem until I realized I was holding the nunchuk "backward." Or rather, upside down. With your palm facing down toward the floor, the nunchuk should curve upward, and the center button that sticks up should be facing to where your thumb can rest on it. I had mine the other way, with my thumb on the "trigger" and nothing was registering. So, play with the positioning of the nunchuk in your hand.

Wii fit boxing

You don't need to punch hard with the Wii Boxing. Below is a demo video of how the game should be played:

If you notice, there is a small twist in the remote when the demonstrator leans forward. Its that motion that the Wii recognises rather than distance. You can even flick the controller to get the same effect.
Be sure that the sensor bar is flat and facing the player directly for best reception.
