i've sort of been used to straight targets--not bob the armless rubber thug, and i can see the value of
what he's saying. when i've been stuck without pads, and literally useless wooden four sided posts [by a
gazebo structure], i've moved a bit like he's saying--when the athleticism has been tossed aside for
the practicality of a more conditioning style hit [where one is mindful of not buggering the hand].

i have otherwise have dilineated a clear difference between my jap slap [which is exactly as he does--stepping'
off to the side to get the real power close-line feel], but he's sort of gone for the hybrid for the otherwise
straight shot [cross]. i sort of like it and get it--at least from the perspective of not getting dogmatic over things,
but keeping aware of the mechanics of how to fire the shot regardless [close and wanting the side spin--as opposed
to the upward hit under the chin, etc...or the straight shot into the eye with the palm heel].

anyway, i thought it was worth watching. he dealt with the subject well, whoever he is. random web searching
for my favorite strike--the palm heel.

Russ,

I too am a big fan of the palm heel strike. One of my favorite fighters in MMA is Bas Rutten even though he isn't active as a fighter any more. In his days fighting in the King of Pancrase days, before he joined the UFC, hrikese quite often used palm heels and open handed strikes with a high level of success.

Keep safe and train hard/smart, Mark H

nice...they're forgiving--especially if you train for the default:
hardest part of the head. when i started hardening my surface pads so they
were in extent, soft material covering a wall, i trained better. sort of 'heavy
bag lie down for makiwara--the inbetween allows even to feel unconcerned
if you only have a wooden post to play with whilst traveling for example.

slowly but surely, i'm afforded hard hits with hard surfaces. i have a student who
hits like a beast but who almost buggered his hand trying to make the transition.
now i'm almost scared of him. i found the clip important of the piece about
not keeping that right angle between the hand and the wrist. i did it by leaning
forward and over as if hitting a fella taller than me--dipping, keeping the angle
not too extreme. i used to really just work with corking my fingers inward as if
doing a diamond pushup--then i realized it felt better more regularly to watch
for that hand to wrist relationship.

when i only had square posts to work with, it was thumbs on top--eye poke
hand placement. so in the process of learning to work with different surfaces,
it's made me sensitive to regard the targets i'm hitting which is psychologically
good because it's sort of happening on a subconscious level now. not quite so many
oopsies.

i love the open palm because in the absense of not overly worrying about wrists
and tight fists, the power is free to grow incrementally. it also lends to forward
pressure. without forward drive, the palms are really useless as the arm is now
shorter. but i'm okay with running in, so i'm happy all round.

just stop me, i could talk palms until the day ends Embarassed
