Reply To: Edge of fist


Yes you can train without the knife hand. Having said that the edge of hand does hold some significant advantages over the hammer fist when it comes into fitting into certain targets ie the neck, inner thighs etc. When training, you will find the strikes you like best and train them to become instinctive and convulsive. Everyone’s tool kit may look a little different. What matters is what is effective for you if and when shit hits the fan.
