    In what sense? I've slapped in a fight. Or do you mean the palm thrust?

    It depends on the target. I'm not a big fan of the palm to the solar-plexus, but I have done it before. I think a vertical punch works better.

    palm thrusts. Once at a seminar a instructor had us use jab, cross etc with palms instead of fists, said you won't break you hand that way.
    Should I do a sideways palm or regular palm to the solar plexus?

    Omega I don't use my palms on your mom, I use my fingers.

    Yeah, we used to do that combo all the time when sport training before all the good glove started coming out. There effectiveness is about 25% less than a closed fist but less likely to break your hands.

    if you hit someone under the chin hard enough, will it break their neck?

    On Sherdog.com the download for Bas Rutten is pretty good. He seems to be using palm strikes. At least it appears that way, maybe not. But whatever he is using seems pretty effective.

    Yeah they're usable in some situation. If I found myself in a situation to knock the head away by a hit into the skull, I'd use a palm strike/thrust. It also works pretty well against the jaw and nose.
