    Kung-fu fisting

    Okay now that were all done laughing at the thread name I just have a small question to some of Kung-fu guys out there.
    Whats up with all the weird fist schools?
    I mean stuff like eagle claw, iron fist, dragon fist, etc etc etc...
    The ****? I would have posted this in the CMA thread but since it's a pretty pointless question so I thought it would fit in YMAS.
    Why do diffrent schools have diffrent fists and do some of them work? (As opposed to a regular fist, thumb under the mid joint of the index and middle finger.)

    You mean as in the shape of the fist made? To imitate ainmal style and preform the deadly eye gouges i suppose. I dont really know, but you're right there are heaps of different fist shapes.

    Then many of the actual styles are translated as Fist. I think iron fist referes to the iron technique of making your body impenetrable etc. (I could be wrong though)

    To a certain extent you are absolutely correct. Tai Chi Chuan for example is translated as "Grand Ultimate Fist" or "Supreme Ultimate Fist"

    The word "Chuan" is the issue here, it is usually used to denote a style, and is usually translated as "Fist" though I have seen it translated as "Boxing" as well because the intent of the Chinese word is to convey the sense of combat or boxing.

    So you can have Wing Chun Chuan (Beautiful Springtime Fist) etc.

    There are also a number of methods for making and positions of the fist in CMA. As well as a wide variety of striking methods across CMA other then the fist, open hand etc.

    Note, this translation is only used by dipshits (except for the fist/boxing part). "Supreme Ultimate" is about as useful a translation as "Gigantic Terminus".

    As far as fist shapes, some of them exist for stupid reasons, some exist to keep the puncher from breaking his knuckles against some guy's head.

    To anyone thats wondering, I'm refferin to both the shape of the fist and style of of '[insert name] fist' styles. Like how each one differs.

    That would be Errant108 and Iron Wheel Fist, some korean buddist martial art.

    So which do you prefer? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tai_chi_chuan#Overview

    "boundless fist," or "great extremes boxing"? Its a translation from ideograms into an alphabet, what do you expect?
