Kumo Jiu Jitsu / Darrell LaFrance / Video Library > Hammer Fist Video Length: 0min. 41sec.
Description:
Darrell LaFrance demonstrates how to execute a proper hammer fist. The hammer fist is a strike with the bottom of a clenched fist, using an action like swinging a hammer, but can also be used horizontally like a backfist strike using the bottom fist. This strike will not damage the bones of the hands as there is no compression of the knuckles or metacarpals, and there is no leverage to bend the wrist. The hammer fist strikes cricket ball sized areas on the body, hence is particularly effective for striking the Occiput, the temples, the nose, the mandible, the wrist (for blocking punches), the sternum, and the ear (although a cupped hand is more effective).
