**calculating "striking force"**

Hi i am trying to find the formula for calculating "striking force" (IE punching/kicking). most of the formulas i have come across don't really seem to include all of the factors involved and are typically simply definitions of force (mass)(acceleration). In my mind it seems it may be related to "impact force" and "pressure" rather than just force (although pressure as i have been reading often only pertains to fluids). To me the factors not only include, mass, acceleration, time of contact, but also the density of the contact areas involved. is there anyone more educated in physics that can help me understand this? thank you :)
