Me too, but like they said, the adrenaline makes all the difference in the world. And nah, it didnt feel like he was wearing a cup.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

Tell me more about the sternum shot.How do you aim it? How do you execute it properly? How do you train it? And what should be the effect on an opponent of a sternum shot properly executed?
Thanx,

The sternum shot I think he's tlaking about would be aiming for the solar plexsis, which is right under where your ribs end in the center of your chest, right above your stomach. Feel that soft spot? Punch yourself there as hard as you can and you'll see what he's talking about.




Also, I agree that Throat strike >> Nut strike lol

2.Do you agree or disagree with the author of "Model Mugging" that palm heel strikes represent the best way to counter attack your opponent in a street self defense situation?
As always,
Ferdelance

1. Don't know enough
2. Yes, palm heel strikes are the most effective, not just because of power- but more importnatly: the likelihood of you breaking your hand in a streetfight is much higher than in the ring. The palm strike prevents a majorly debillitating break.

And if you can't palm strike use fist-punches where your thumb is to the top, as recommended by Dempsey. Actually more powerful and still safer for yuor hands.

I'd punch with a fist but thumb loose, so I could eye gouge Liddel style, while punching at the same time.

To ACTUALLY answer your question federlance, Iron Palm is similar to Iron Vest and Iron Groin technique. Iron Palm originates in the kung fu practices of Shaolin. It's basically hand conditioning, what do u do is take a bag of gravel (they start off with dried beans usually), put it on a hard surface. General rule is 100 strikes a day, each hand. Its important that you dont use too much force, relax your arm and drop your hand into the bag, exhaling each time. Use some force, but dont try and smash your hand down into it, this is the kung-fu way. quite soft compared to karate (hitting the maki-wara) but that will **** up your hands in the long run and give u arthritis and nerve damage. anyways, hit that thing at least 100 times each day, both hands, with your palms and with your knuckles, and edge if u want. after a couple months youll notice a difference, after a year you'll have really really ******* tough hands. also, rubbing dat dit jow is important, or at least hot water, but rub a lot. the circulation is important for rebuilding the tissue and making your hands strong
