I chose them all, but I have to admit that I don't train knees very often.

I don't train shoulders, but I train the rest of those plus finger tips and wrist.

I checked them all. Two through seven we train nightly on pads and bags, head butt and shoulder used the least but used a bit just the same. Id add striking with the biceps as in a clothesline type strike, and finger tips as well.

I dont train much open hands against the bag if at all. We do some open hand strikes in self defense.

I never do head butts or shoulder strikes in training.

Train everything. Trying to make myself a "human" weapon.

But I have to admit, that I don't practice shoulders much.

Headbutt are something I always think of an option. So I don't ignore it, nor do I ignore the option of biting.

I practice all on a sandbag, and sometimes a wooden billboard. Sorta like my own makiwara, but I don't like hitting the board that much. It doesn't absord like the sandbag.

Elbows and knees I practice constantly, open hands the same including knife hands, fists and hammers I practice as much, and headbutts/shoulders I leave as a mental possibilitie so if I need it I'm aware but I never train it. 'bangs head against brick'

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.

As for the shoulders, do you mean using the shoulders for takedowns, because I have done a bit of that. I'm no expert in grappling though, so I probably neglect that side of my training a bit.

The head- ouch. I prefer to use my noggin for the smart stuff
