    UFC Rules

    Fouls:
    - Small joint manipulation.
    - Spiking an opponent to the canvas on his head or neck.

    Just a few questions about UFC rules. What exactly does small joint manipulation include? I assume wrist, finger, ankle locks etc. Does this include hitting the joints as well? The rule seems a little vague.

    Also, would the rule "Spiking an opponent to the canvas on his head or neck" eliminate koshi nage's, and other such throws? It's quite easy for someone to land on their head or shoulder if they don't know how to breakfall properly.

    I didn't see anything about palm strikes. Are they legal?

    Small joint means fingers and toes. Wristlocks and ankle locks are perfectly legal. The throwing on the head means a deliberate attempt to spike someone straight down like a pile driver. And joint strikes are legal, they are just not that effective. Palm strikes are also legal last I knew.

    No they're not legal. If they were, then we would see a lot of death and massive internal damage from Iron Palm Masters like Jim Lacy and Brian Gray. The rules are there to protect the fighters. If they allowed iron palms, they may as well allow the right cross or roundhouse kicking to the head. Those are leathal techniques as well and should be left out of the octagon.

    I think it's best that we stick to lay and pray, and submissions. safer that way.

    Yes, they just suck.

    Why are kicks to the kidney from guard not allowed?

    Because there is a very good chance of doing lasting damage to the kidneys.

    Yes pressure points are legal. Man that question just cracks me up. TMA guys constantly thinking they are not legal because they are never used. They are not used because they do not work.

    The same reason you can't hit to the Kidney's in every combat sport?
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    The same could be said for the head.

    I don't think there is a rule that disallows Dim Mak, Hamemamehah and No-Touch KO's either.
