Also, open hand techniques don't have a different range to the fists, so why bother having two different hand tools for the same range.






I'd like to have as many tools for defending myself as possible. what happens if u bust up ur knuckles bad or u dont want ur knuckles to bleed all over the drugo with AIDS ur pummelling? o well we all have different opinions

If your knuckles 'bust open', that means you've got bad mechanics.

Another thing, AIDS isn't transfered from 'bleeding all over him'. I'd be more concerned about AIDS if he was 'bleeding all over me'.

Also there's a very small chance that you'll get AIDS from busting your knuckles open and then bleeding. There's still a chance, but not so high to insure 99% risk of being infected.

Open hand techniques. Are good, but I don't like them. Not really my 'choice of meat'.

"If your knuckles 'bust open', that means you've got bad mechanics." Not to harp but not really, if you don't hit the person at exactly the tangent or if they fall strangely you will get sideways movement on the knuckle which can cause knuckles to 'bust open' not necessarily bad mechanics. Who cares anyways, open hand, closed fist... you can condition both

I train most of those. However, I don't train open hand, shoulders or head butts.

I've never seen the point in training open hand, since I know that I prefer to use my fists, and if I was in a fight, I would simply go back to what I felt safest with anyway. Also, open hand techniques don't have a different range to the fists, so why bother having two different hand tools for the same range.





I'd have to disagree, I find that finger tip strikes have a greater range, where as palm heel strikes and wrist strikes can generate a lot of power at a closer range than a punch. But that might just be my partiality to open hand techniques talking. I started breaking stuff at a young age and my sensei discouraged using punches as the impact can damage growing carpals and metacarpals in the hand, so I got around that by using open handed techniques instead.
