Anyone forcing me into striking, isn't going to be given any splayed out fingers to mess up, on purpose or by accident/no0b-flail.

    Slap fighting leaves marks and redness also. Unless there's hours or days between the fight, and police involvement, I imagine either would leave telltale signs of combat.

    My thought is, don't punch or kick if you don't have to. If you do, and you're trading slaps for someone's punches....you will likely lose out on the trade, unless they're so weak that you could have avoided striking in the first place.
    The problem a ton of people displaying is that many people have never trained in the proper use of palm strikes. The fact that you describe them as "slaps" shows this. It's not a slap, and no one is going to grab your fingers if you curl them correctly. You throw your whole body into the thrusting palm strike and you will get a ton of power.

    Around my house, i smash the doors around with palms all the time to train power ( sense I don't have a bag ). At one point, I doubted the actual power behind a palm, and so I stupidly decided to literally face palm heel my self. I didn't go full force, but in my doubt i went way harder that I should have.

    Yeah guys....it's definitely not a slap. Where as a punch is more of a "piercing" strike, the palm is more of a blunt force smash. The point of it is that the palm forces you to slow down a bit and actually time your strikes, use your legs and shoulder to step into them, and allows you to throw maximum power into each one, considering no matter where you hit it probably won't hurt your hand. Go ahead stick em in the forhead, even the worst case scenario still has you literally pushing their heads back towards their necks in an unnatural way.


    but like I said, they take more training, as in sparring you don't really use them

    Plenty of styles teach slapping-style palm strikes in addition to thrusting ones.

    true that. But still, a hooking palm is not really the same as a slap. To the temple, it can do some real damage.

    WTF are you striking someone in the temple with your hands for? Are you begging for a boxers fracture?

    Ok Man, let me run through this so I'm all square:

    thrusting - check
    hard parts on soft parts - check
    and slightly curved fingers - Roger wilco.

    Now where's my Missus?

    Whoever came up with this cliche had never experienced a knee to the face.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.
