Don't get me wrong I will occasionally end a combination with a right hand to the body as im leaving striking range. But I feel so much safer ending combinations with a kick to the body/leg.
I agree that kicks to the body are a much safer and more versatile option. While a handstrike to the body could possibly be more surgical, its much more likely to get you knocked down, or out, than a solid body kick or knee, but even knees get you mighty close!
