    And what I see most often from arts like some silats, kempo, and matrix, and now arakan, are slaps.

    Which is a slap that at most might have a slight dropping of weight to give it a little oomph, but mostly they're arm strikes.

    Not properly loaded palm strikes either taught as jabs and crosses, or swinging strikes similar to those used in pigua.

    But since a lot of these folks don't spar, they don't know you're not going to stop anybody determined with a hit like that.

    I can't find it, but Rodney King of Crazy Monkey Defense fame used to have an instructional of how to hit with the palm in a way that made sense.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    The Rodney King video I have is only about how "the fastest way to knock someone out is an open-hand slap to the back of the head." He talks about working an angle and some minor clinch stuff to get the head down so you can slap it, if I remember correctly. Been a while since I last watched it.

    That's not the one.

    This one was just a simple video about body mechanics and rotation to produce power.

    This weekend is out, picked up a few injuries from my Muay Thai fight. It wouldn't be fair to do a review of the class if i'm physically unable to do their training, bullshido or not. To show i'm not a dirty liar fight footage will be available in a couple of weeks once the promoter has sent out the dvd.
