Heel Strike Punching motion Hand position o Hyperextend the wrist and lead with the heel of the hand. o Pull fingers back and press the thumb against the palm to avoid finger injuries. Strikes – All of the strikes use the same motion as the punch. The only difference in the strikes is the hand position of the strike. Web Strike (causes attacker to either gag or bruises or collapses the attacker’s windpipe). Punching motion Hand position o Separate the thumb and fingers (as if holding a glass and to make a toast). o Stiffen the entire hand on contact. When students practice this release, have one partner hold up his/her forearm and have the defender perform the web strike around the forearm.
Eye Gouge (The students should be informed that this strike should be done only as a last resort). Punching motion Hand position o Hand should be open and rounded as if the person was holding a grapefruit. o Stiffen the entire hand on contact. o The thumb and little finger anchor strike by digging into the cheek or jaw and the other fingers penetrate as far as possible into eye socket. When students practice this release, have one partner hold up his/her fist and have the defender perform the eye gouge around the fist.
