Can someone tell me what is the gentle fist style I know it uses palm strike but I don't see how it can do more damage than a punch can someone tell me?

Why would you think that a style called "gentle fist" would be able to do more damage than a punch?

Never heard of it...sounds like something out of a Chinese Kung-fu movie.

But, if you don't want to injure your knuckles on a hard target, the palm-heel strike is a good choice of weapons. This isn't exclusive of "gentle fist style", it's found in nearly all striking arts...including karate.

Yes but i don't see how palm strike are effective I need someone to explain the relationship between palm strikes and pressure points cause self proclaim master of karate told me A palm strike could be deadly on pp points if hit at the right once with the right force

Kirky, the "deadly" comment is off the wall, but the palm heel strike is powerful because you are using a part of the hand that will align with your arm automatically. You don't have to worry about your wrist flexing. The obvious downside is that you are more limited in the targets you should strike. As hedkikr said, you aren't going to break knuckles on a hard surface, but you are less likely to penetrate a specific target.

I never said that a palm-heel strike isn't deadly. It can be - just like any other type of strike using proper target & impact. It's just not exclusively a deadly technique.

And you can't push the nose bone into the brain w/ palm-heel to instantly kill someone. If the nose bone is shoved into the brain, chances are high the the entire face is crushed as well. People have survived this injury as well as died from it (in auto accidents).

damn I've heard of that before but I saw this guy he had a unique palm style of his own he call it his gentle fist he for a rookie just in martial arts he took out that pro after the match he said its his own style and he told me its not about hurt the opponent on the outside but hurting him internal what does that mean? I saw him palm striked that veteran in the arms a couple time and it was like the guy's arm got heavy on him then i saw him him like he was doing this weird thing he stared at the pro for a while like he was marking out his pp points he was gonna strike and I saw him fired three palm strikes to his chest then the guy dropped just like that I was like I wonder if I could ever beat a guy like that

Well, you see, Neji Hyuuga is a pretty tough customer. His special eye-seeing-power thing allows him to accurately perceive the points on your body, from which you can emit chakra. He channel his own chakra through his strikes, and uses it to close said portals. As such, it becomes more difficult to use your limbs.

Will you ever be able to beat him? No; he's an anime character. You will find it impossible to interact with him in any way, much less fight him.

The guy I know is Morris Dylan Chin and who is Neji Hyuuga? and Chin does not have all eye seeing power which i don't think anybody does besides God and i don't think Morris uses so called powers all he did was picked out pp points(and Morris is very smart when it comes to pp points and has vast knowledge of that) and struck them knocking him out it was on different parts of his chest not these portals you speak of.

Will I ever beat Morris i don't know I don't think i'm in his league yet and seriously you need to lay off that japanese anime cause this thing but Neji who just creeped me out.
Why would i write about fictional martial arts on a non fictional martial arts forum. But I do think he just made up a simple name for his style
