    Cliche Techniques

    You know what I'm talking about. The kind of techniques you only see in movies and women's self defense courses. The real question is, do they have merit? Are they indeed effective? I'll start off with two.

    Palm-Strike to the Nose: Definately one of the kings of cliche. Boasts the ability to break your opponents nose or even KILL them with minimal force!...Well, actually that's true. If they are willing to hold still and let you hit them. And how often does that happen?

    Eagle-Claw to the Adams Apple: A movie type move here. SUPER NINJA DARK SECRET-esque. Watch as the ninja forms the claw with his thumb, middle and index finger, proceeding to tear his opponent's throat out! But, in all reality, this move can be effective. If you had been mounted and managed to pull a good eagle claw on someone's neck, I imagine their objective would quickly change from "get a submission" to "PROTECT MY FUCKING NECK". It takes some practice and is not nearly as simple or easy to execute as the movies would like you to believe, but it can be effective.

    Thoughts?

    The nose thing doesn't really work, I like the karate kid one leg in the air kick them with the other leg move. Snap kick to groin isn't 100% either.

    Go away I'm talking to myself

      LOL I'v never seen anybody try and crane kick somebody. I imagine it'd be damn funny though.

      Palm strike works if you can hit dead on. The bottom of your palm is VERY solid in that position. Good luck hitting though.

        I REALLY love the back hand strike to the person who is running up behind you!!! That is SOOO SWEET!! 'Specially cuz you never even look at the DOOD's FACE. You just Pound him! Kiai!

        Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the fuck I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

                      Pussies. Everyone knows you have to wait on the top shelf of a closet and then swing out feet-first when you hear the sound of breathing.
