Horizontal or Vertical,
By Juggernaut - Tue, 03 Apr 2007 16:55:01 GMT


Within some of the techniques in the manuals such as Alternating Mace you strike with a vertical fist to the solar plexus. I heard a high level Kenpoist state that you should use a horizontal fist when punching below the shoulder and a vertical fist when punching above the shoulder. I am speaking of fully extended punches such as a reverse punch. Not uppercuts or flanking type punches.

Why would you punch with a vertical fist to the body versus a horizontal fist to the body as it is written in the Yellow Belt Manual in Alternating Mace?
