    I choose backfist, its more versitile and in many ways more effective than a jab, yet is not used because of its Ineffectiveness if used while wearing gloves and , in my opinion, because the jab is just more popular.
    Most Kickboxers use the jab and only use the backfist in its "spinning" variety.
    I think a good backknuckle to the eye socket says "hello" very nicely.

    I voted for the good ol' Forearm Strike. In my school we have several forms that utilize this technique however, sometimes I think that I'm the only one that uses it while sparring.

    I chose the Front kick. It can stop a fight if you know how to do it with power, and it doesn't place you in very much risk like other attacks. It's also great for setting up other attacks and baiting ppl.

    i choose front kick, a good push kick to the pelvic girdle bends a guy pretty good for a front head lock,

    i have to go with throws. a good throw will **** you up, especially if the guy doesn't know how to breakfall and you do it in an uncontrolled fashion. not to mention not doing it on a mat.

    I'd have to go with the headlock.

    A good headlock (couting front face lock) will be enough to finish the average moron.

    I'll be the smartass and say "Running", but only because nobody else brought it up already.
