Open Palm Strike
The open palm is a direct and effective strike that is often used in predetermined self-defense. It can be used as a strike to your adversary’s nose, chin, or groin. Two open palms are also used to “box” your adversary’s ears.
The hammer-fist is one of the quickest and most effective ways to end an altercation. As opposed to striking with the bones and knuckles of your hand, the hammer-fist uses the side of your hand to strike your adversary. The hammer-fist is effective when used against your adversary’s face, nose, chin, and groin.
The frontball kick is a quick, powerful, and direct kick that is easy to learn. When executed, the frontball kick should be targeted at the adversary’s knee, inner thigh, or groin.
The main objective of the front kick is to strike your adversary in his/her groin. The front kick is always a recommended option because all adversaries will stand with their feet shoulder width apart for balance. This gives you a direct avenue to the groin. A correctly executed front kick to the groin will allow you enough time to run to safety.
