What is the remedy for a 3 ½ year old tantrum?

I have a 3 ½ year old son. I have tried everything to discipline him from putting him in the naughty corner, taking his toys away, punishing him etc etc etc . I am now on wits end. When we are in public, he doesn’t necessarily throw a tantrum but he starts hitting us when he cant get his way. At home its the same behaviour. Any ideas on how to solve this problem will be appreciated.

Have you tried ignoring him? I know that if my children start, I just walk away and even around the corner so they can't see me. They soon stop and come looking for me.

They have leaned that I won't put up with tantrums and they more they carry on the less interaction I give them.

My kids are now 11, 8.5 and 2.5 and haven't had tantrums in public from them in ages. Even the older ones. Usually at their age it's just asking for things all the time but that has stopped as well.
