Nukite to the solar plexus. Complete and utter rubbish. No one is going to stand still while you jam your fingers into a 1cm wide lacuna in their abdominal wall. Rage Against the Machine, anyone?

Worst technique I've been taught:
Defense against side kick (yeah, you see that on t3h str33t all the time) -- downward palm strike to the assailant's knee. I guess it didn't occur to anyone that if you can reach your attacker's knee, he is already kicking you.
The one time I attempted this technique in sparring the force of the kicker's rising leg, coupled with the downward movement of my palmstrike, caused my wrist to severly hyperextend. I needed surgery to fix that one. DOH!!!

This is the worst I ever heard: If someone attacks you with a knife, take the blow of the knife on your arm, so that while the knife is stuck in one arm (or body, if you miss), you got the other arm to hit him, while you have successfully taken the knife away from the person by having it stuck in your arm. Viola, instant disarment and counter.

The worst technique I was ever taught was a low "x" block to stop a front kick. I asked my instructor at the time why the attacker wouldn't then punch me in the face because both my arms were down and crossed... He said that the block would happen too fast, and that I would be able to lift my hands up in time to block follow up punches. Of course we weren't encouraged to test this out.

Go to ki sanctuary for instruction, build up your chi.
Next, take this piece of iron, and practice your palm strikes on it.
Come back in a month,
and try again.

[I've actually had this happen. . .and, yes, it worked! Luckily the knife didn't sever anything important, only leaving me with a weakened grip on that arm. And, No! I do not recommend this technique!]

I was training sword under a guy that, in retrospect, was a serious BS-artist. He tried to teach me a japanese sword technique that involved spinning the blade across the backs of my fingers one handed, like a baton twirler. It was at this point that I had to realize how much horseshit he had sold me.
sliced fingers? nope, I have to be quick enough to only grasp the spine of the blade.
combat effectiveness? I guess when a evil ninja sees this uber-cool move they will either run in fear, or anally violate me on account of how faggish it looked.
