    I like a left fist and a right open hand ready to parry the jab.

    Basically, all one need do is consider what fingers were evolved to do.

    Dexterity for the making and manipulation of tools and weapons--some of them precision instruments--would, over millenia of evolution, have favoured grace over structural strength.

    Open hands (but fingers together) for bars, locks, throws (and some open-handed strikes if you're into those)? Sure.

    Otherwise, keep 'em tight.

    But that's just me...

    Same here. A not quite closed fist.

    also

    Thumbs exposed are an invitation to thumbs broken. Witnessed it a couple of times over the years.
