    I have seen some techniques in kajukenbo that use these strikes.
    The middle knuckle fist is used to strike to the eyeball, and the phoenix eye strike is used to strike the temple area .:glasses10

    He throws it as a straight punch as he is stepping off of the line of attack.

    Hmmm a concensus is starting to develop, eye, temple, solar plexus... Does anyone have other good targets for this weapon?

    Let me say that "fist" is a part of the Atemi-waza of Judo. It works very well...

    ...no I will not tell you, it works that well.

    My next clinic in Findlay Ohio is next weekend (remember to RSVP with Mark Hunter or it will be canceled) if you are there, I will show it to you.

    Get over your self hero. This site is for sharing not selling. However, I'm glad for you that you know how to use it.

    Anyone else have anything "constructive" to add?

    Ok you're a noob so I'm gonna be nice to ya. You see that tag next to MTripp's name? The one that says "Is better than you", it's true. He's got a lot of experience and likes to share it.

    Please come down to that clinic, for free, and express yourself "hero" as you have here...

    ...to my face is much braver than flexing for your monitor.

    I will enjoy showing it to you.

    He is the reason I won't explain it here.....

    ...oh, back to the jackass; the clinic is donation only. If people are out of work, they pay nothing.

    Still, I'd love to see you....

    I never really trained the middle finger knuckle until recently (I don't really count Bujinkan training, since there wasn't much training, just trivial knowledge). Now I'm training it mostly for soft targets or ribs, my current Silat teacher trains it for precisely what was mentioned above, raking hits to the ribs & the occasional temple, eye, or neck strike. The conditioning started out with just knocking the middle knuckles together while sitting watching tv or whatever, then lightly hitting a board. Eventually I hope to work up to full power hooks to the heavy bag and strikes to the metal bag I use for punches, chops, elbows & the like.

    Cool Jim_Jude, thx for the constructive advice.

    I'm not trying to flex my monitor muscle, and I'm sure Mtripp would wipe the mat with me, that is not the point of what I said. His reply was bogus with nothing to add. It just sounded stuck up.

    No one likes being talked down to, do they Mtripp?

    Peace out.
