How far are enemies knocked back?

I have a feeling I was encountering someone with a hacked client, but just to make sure, about how much knockback does a normal punch do in Minecraft? Is it normal to be knocked back 4-5 blocks, or was the other player probably cheating?

  • 4-5 blocks seems like a lot to me...

Regular attacks only inflict slight knockback.

It's very likely that he was sprinting for a split second before hitting you.

If you punch someone while sprinting it inflicts a lot more knockback. 4-5 blocks isn't an unreasonable distance to punch someone while sprinting.
