Then there is the art of kinet. It's where I press the kiboard and transmit ki through the net to you and it explodes your eyes.

I did it to Matt just then. Matt needs a braille keyboard now. So watch out.

Have you ever heard of a fighter named Mirko Filipovic? He follows the same logic of thinking when it comes to his kicks. Instead of spreading the damage out over the entire width of his foot, he concentrates it on the tip of his big toe. All the damage is concentrated into a "spike" if you will, bruising internal organs. The same principle is applied to the Gentle Fist Technique. Shrink the area of contact and you increase the damage internally. And just so you will all shut up a palm strike does have less impact zone than a fist strike, thus causeing more damage internally.

Fist strike, palm strike, knuckle strike, fingertip strike. In that decending order is the impact zone of hand strikes.

I.......where are you getting this info from? This is not accurate at all. Crocop is well known to use his shin, not his big toe, for his kicks.

Look at his fight against Ibragim Magomedov. He kicked him in the side using his toe. He damaged his liver with that kick. He has done it against many opponents.

There's another one on youtube called Mirko cro cop VS Poor Japanese I just watched. He does a great job of throwing a high kick and then bringing it back fast enough to stuff the takedown attempt. A couple times the guy shoots while Cro Cop is still kicking but he still manages to sprawl. Nice.

Good shot on the Neji thing. That's obviously what he's thinking of
