I am not sure if this counts as a strike or not but I use the back of my shoulder to manipulate my opponents upperbody, setting them up for a more devestating strike. I use my hips in the same way to disrupt their stance and set up the next strike or throw.

I actually use my palms instinctual at infighting/stand up grappling range as I did in my last fight, the guy grabbed me up real close and I reacted with a palm to the fact and as a preemptive strike I often use my palms if I go for body shots as it seems to be more stable, however fists give nice effect to.

Used them all but the shoulder in capoeira.
Used them all but the shoulder and the headbutt in jujutsu.
Same goes for gongfu, Uechi Ryu karate, and Shorinji kempo.
(however, those last two were mere trials: I didn't study them long
enough to know if those arts use the headbutt / shoulder charge or not).
Use none in Iaido.

Lies!

Your signature says it all "Wen Wu Shuang Quan". Just be honest and tell people you can beat people up with your hands and feets tied up, and relying on nothing but your head and shoulders. . And no, I'm not talking about the shampoo.

almost all open hand & forearm. 'kick' with knee as much as using the knee as a striking surface. use shoulder checks with takedowns.

punching, kicking? sure, but the other stuff is so much more fun!

I don't do a lot of kicking but I train with most of them. Obviously things like knees and shoulder butting have to be simulated and depending on what you have for protection, elbows do as well. Otherwise it ALL can be worked into play.

We train in them all we call them the five tools head, hands, elbows, knees, and feet. A good head butt is a devastating move.

Damn, Iím caught!
Youíre right Taison: my headbutts and shoulder-strikes outrange most taekwondo flying kicks, outpower most muay thai knees, outspeed most wingchun punches, and outqi most taiji palm-strikes. However, when I use them with my hands and feet tied together (which is just a little trickier, but you soon get the hang of it and the surprise effect on the opponent is well worth), I usually prefer to be blindfolded as well, to help me focus and empty my mind.

Seriously, I no longer train those strikes, but I think my nutís condition isnít so bad nonetheless since I can, from a standing position, bend my body backwards until I hit the ground with my head and remain in this position, touching the ground with nothing but the tip of my feet and the top of my skull . In case any of you guys want to try this neat little stunt (which is of absolutely no use from a martial point of view), I suggest you donít until you can do the same but land on your hands instead (very common gymnastics move). And even then, when you attempt the no-handed version, be prepared to put your hands in emergency in case you realize upon impact that your neck wonít take the weight : I came stupidly close to breaking mine on my first try. It suddenly bent backwards with a terrifyingly loud creaking noise which discouraged me from attempting it again for several weeks : for a second, I really thought I had killed/permanently paralized myself .
My instructor told me that in his younger days , he could get back up from this position without using his hands, just reversing the initial move. Now that must look cool...

And by the way, "wen wu shuang quan" doesnít refer to my deadly qi-nut but to my ability to talk my enemies to death with endless idle speeches .

If you can bend like that, you can suplex without problem.

Same, I use my knees and hips a lot to control my oponents stance. Some different strikes that i use that I haven't seen mentioned are the back of my wrist, and knife edge of my pointer finger (both as 'flicks')
