    If you want to learn how to hit people, go to a fight club.

    A STREET-fight club. And participate in street-kickboxing matches, like in Never Back Down.

    A strange mixture of various influences, goju karate, taichi chuan, boxing, systema, jujitsu.grappling,weaponry. Been training 30 years, now train with a small group of experienced people who all have a need for real world application of their arts for professional reasons. i have service personell etc in my group. We find it hard to correctly label what we do at our group. Strongest influence is probably the chinese arts.

    Carry 4 oz gloves in your back pocket everywhere you go, and as you're about to get into a fight, put them on slowly while saying, "Sir, I feel I should first warn you that I have been trained in multiple systems."

    Do you spar or compete full-contact?

    I train in Steel Dragonfist, the deadliest of the single punch styles. It takes ultimate discipline of the people, and must never be used to........ PUNCH TO KILL!!!!

    YouTube - "PUNCH TO KILL!"

    Yes and no, not much anymore, lots of bagwork/mitts etc. Have done in the past. Boxing with gloves etc. My experience of real world violence led me to modifying a lot of the emphasis in our training. The point that I wanted to bring up is that I felt that boxing with gloves did not adequetley prepare for hitting bony structures etc bare handed. Probably seems obvious to those who compete in no rules full contact.

    Hitting hard surfaces prepares for hitting bony structures.

    Having said that and having hard hands, I'd still not hit someone in the forehead. Jaws, cheeks, etc, yes.

    I've seen some awesome knockouts from boxers hitting people in the head and they weren't wearing gloves.

    What other bony structures are you talking about besides the head?

    Honestly, I'm not sure if there is any amount of conditioning you can do, that will keep you from breaking your hands if you punch someone in the skull. That bone is 40 times harder then concrete, and its curved shape gives it even more strength.

    This leads to the "vital point striking" which, again, in my opinion, isn't t3h d34dly nerve strike, but saying "I could punch him in the forehead, or i could punch him in the solar plexus. Which one is more likely to injure him more?"

    Or, you could grapple :p

    That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.
