    Default Kiss of death

    Dear Kenpo brothers and sisters:

    Does Kenpo as it is currently taught include the "kiss of death" technique?
    The KOD, for those folks that may have not heard of it, is a palm strike that rotates as it strikes the jaw of your opponent. It is normally delivered with the leading hand and is followed up with an elbow strike with the same arm. A KOD could be used in the place of a hook punch and would use the same body positioning.

    What are your thoughts on this technique? It is really a death strike or is this more hype than reality?

    I've never used the KOD in combat but I'm sure it would be an effective strike to the jaw. Could it really cause a fatal injury? Maybe doc could help us out here.

    Dear Kenpo brothers and sisters:

    I've learned since my post that this move I thought was called the KOD is similiar to a palm strike technique out of white tiger.

    Thanks for your help!

    Long time no see Mr. Bunny. Glad to "see" ya.

    Nelson, I've executed this maneuver but never knew it had a "name." I just did it becuase it seemed to flow. I work it on "Bob" quite a bit and use return motion to execute an obscure elbow followed by a back knuckle strike or sometimes a claw. Just depends. One of the things I love about Kenpo is the way maneuvers easily fit togehter allowing a continuous flow of motion.

    While I have heard of the Five Finger Exploding Heart Technique, I've never heard of the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique. Maybe I'm jsut thinking of a different Wu-Tang movie. LOL.

    so, a thrusting corkscrew heelpalm to the jaw/chin if thats what you're talking about.. theres a move in one of the AKKI techniques.. never heard of it refered to as a kiss of death tho.

    It's all over the system. A palm-heel to the jaw can easily rotate to an eye gouge, too-just like in finger set.

    Unhappy Re: Kiss of death

    We, too practice a Kiss of Death technique, however it involves ingesting huge amounts of raw garlic, fritos, onions, and fish. (Actually I guess it'd be more appropriately termed...'Kiss of Nausea '
