How To Know Which Part Of The Hand to Strike With

Q: Palm strike Vs closed fist? Which is better?

A: I love Firaz Zahabi’s take on it.

It’s not about which is better, it’s a matter of structure.

So, at the point of impact, the object with a stronger structure will break the weaker one. So, if your ankle hits my shin, my shin will win. Likewise, if your fist hits my skull, your hand will break.The key then is to ensure that the structure that your hitting is weaker then the structure you will be hitting it with.Both strikes are useful, but, it really depends where you’ll be using it.
