    Default The eye strike in Thundering Hammers

    ....Here is another angle showing the strike to the eye as well as the initial block/strike to the attacker's right punch...

    Regards,

    There we go, now it is up and running. So is that your extension or are you just improvising? Either way it still looks cool.

    Not to mention the 1st one strikes the kidney, not the middle of the back.

    Very interesting.
    I was initially taught this technique with a similar entry. Except, instead of an eye poke, I was taught to execute a simple punch to the temple. It could be easily adapted into a finger poke though.
    Thanks for the post!

    yep...we have a drill where we build our fingers by doing high reps of finger clinches(making a fist). So, as you block, you can unleash your fingers and bam--you have an instant finger strike. Pretty dangerous stuff.....Thus, any fist is a meat granade!

    I like it and don't like it at the same time. I can see using that, but our Thundering Hammers isn't so gentle on the first and second move.
