Yes, hitting is mostly balance coupled with your core muscles (abs). Don't lead with your arms, it's poor technique and will end up with you in the box.

You need to get under people when you hit. Get low and thrust into them upward with your shoulder. Do this regardless of their size. Alot of tall people who are unfamiliar with hitting mistakenly beleive they can hit by bowling them over. Watch any of the best hitters, they get under the guy.

Lastly, a successful check does not nessessatate killing the guy, just removing them from the puck and taking them out of the play.
