    When hitting someone without gloves on, different hand positions can be used to hit with a smaller surface area, as in a middle knuckle or index knuckle strike. I use these when sparring under kyokushin-esque rules and they can work pretty well. The problem can arise when they are never sparred with because people aren't quite sure how to apply them. Open handed strikes can be used to hit the skull or attack things like eyes with the fingertips, or to grab. I know most of you don't care for teh d3adly, but it is what it is.

    The title of this thread had much promise. I am kind of disappointed, to be honest.

    I myself never understood the point in trying to apply a certain knuckle postion to a small area during a fight in a special circumstance. Few of these fists hit more powerful on a bag than your standard fist. The less you have to think about, the better.

    Some positions fit better, I know for a fact that it is easy to punch someone in the eye with the first knuckle out. I use middle knuckle when punching the neck.

    They might fit better, but in the middle of a fight, do you think you are going to say, "Hey, with his head tilted back just so, this would be the perfect opportunity to utilize that leopard fist I been meaning to use!"

    How often do you punch people in the neck?

    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.)
    What's with all the gay grappling names?

    Omapolata
    Gogoplata
    The Howdy
    The Brabo
    The Shaolin
    Ezekiel
    x-guard
    turtle guard
    butterfly
    Mission Control
    Rubber guard
    Spider Guard
    The lion tamer
    The boston
    The quasimodo

    It's human nature to make funny fucked up names.
    Phoenix fist, eagle claw, cranes beak. Make sense when you think they were trying to mimic mother nature.

    I punch people really hard. If they get up, I punch them again.

    lol... yeah well I can't argue that point with you mate; unfortunately the British -nanny state- Goverment here would have sued me to death on behalf of the scum/duchebag prisoner if I'd done that straight off the bat, one of the reasons I left the Prison Service.
