    You should know that I very rarely laugh at things I read on the internet, or anywhere, but that fucking cracked me up. what an image.:thumbsup:

    I did say 'under the chin'. Wrist + temple = comedy

    Now try it again.

    I learnt this move back in my krotty days, we were told it was for if your hand was injured somehow. I think it could be viable but it's low percentage, unless you have a real need for it i dont see much point to it.


    It's a bony tough area so I reckon one could do some serious damage with it if one were to connect with it, which I think is unlikely when facing a skilled opponent.

    You could choose to use it against an unskilled opponent, in order to impress your buddies. That could be fun.

    Good call. I'll be looking for a neck crank. Untrained head=basketball.
    Failing that, standing RNC FTW

    Well, I just tried it on the chin. I don't dare go full force, I value my teeth (it's obvious I'll never be much of a fighter, eh).

    I'm going to ignore all the reasonable responses in here and reply directly to the OP.

    I don't think it is safe or effective to hit with the back of the wrist. Outside of demonstrations and drunken forms competition I see such a narrow use for this technique that I would never bother practicing it.

    As I see it you are only limiting your reach for no benefit beyond mild deception.

    The only case where I can see it being worth even considering using the back of the wrist is when you're going to throw a backfist and just don't have enough distance. But you're taking an already low percentage move, and further lowering the percentage of success.

    Flashy, low percentage moves only work if you're a phenomenal athlete and already have a solid mastery of the basics.

    I'm not sure that makes sense, I think it's better to change the angle of attack and use a forearm smash in that circumstance.
