    In one of our Hung Gar forms we use a rising palm strike to the chin with a tiger strike to the face concluded with a ripping motion downward. Have never tried it in application. Not sure if I would want to.

    Praying Mantis calls that stealing the peaches. Followed up by a grab and a rip. Also know as starting the lawn mower.

    the name of the form is called, White ape steals the peach or White Gibon Steal the peach. The first move of the form is a quick 45 angle to the left into a low monkey stace and then performing the stealing the peach move. The form is named after the first move.

    Yes, but don't forget you have the benefit of giving your opponent a nasty case of tetnaus when using the rusty iron palm.

    the wonderful thing about the palm strike to the chin/nose/forehead, on an upright opponent is that it gets his head back ,breaking his balance making any throw a lot easier to accomplish
