    A downward palm HEEL across the schoze is always a good way to make your point.

    Thanks for the feedback. I checked out some of Bas Rutten's videos on his website.

    I guess what's bugging me is if palm strikes are effective, why don't more fighters use them?

    Knuckles cause more "visual" damage, they can cut, which leads to bleeding, which impares vision or can lead to a stoppage.

    Also, a condition fist can cause alot of damage.

    They were used a lot more in the early UFC's before people started wearing gloves.

    I feel gloves are THE major reason why palm heels are not seen in MMA comp today. Gloves protect your hand and allow you to hit harder with the fist without breaking it. Also I find most gloves greatly lessen the effectiveness of palms by restricting wrist movement.

    That is why you see no IRON PALM practitioners in the UFC.

    Gloves are very common now. I suspect that if more competitions were gloveless, more fighters would hit with palms.

    palm heels are a sefer bet for the user. Plus they can lead to other techniques. Despite the fact that the "put his nose thru his brain" myth was debunked, a good solid dtrike to the nose w/the palm can still cause one's eyes to water and get someone away from you.

    Besides, palm hits gives you the chance to grab when you hit...

    You could hit very hard with palm strikes and not break your bones.

    They need to be trained for, I had a beginner-intermediate class hit a heavy bag with palm heels.
    They found that saying I will palm strike here and actually delivering one that works is like evrything else, it takes training.

    After reading Jekyll's threads I bring back an old sig.......

    Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.
