we do double palm strikes to the sternum and palm strikes to the face for self defense in tkd, but not usually in sparring. I suppose it would be allowed but that's just in the gym.
Two questions:
1.Why double palm strikes to the sternum?
2.Where on the sternum do you aim? Just anywhere, or a specific spot?

We did palm strikes to liver and spleen the other day wearing the belly pads. and i must tell you it hurts like hell, not mentioning that you just going to pee yourself if not expecting
How is the palm strike to the liver executed?
How were you taught?

I usually see palm strikes to the liver with the fingers pointing down.

I never see palm strikes used. I think it's because
1. The posture of you hand makes it prone to injury
2. Less reach than knuckles
3. Not as damaging as the knuckles

Part of the purpose of a double palm strike is to push the person back while covering a greater area, part of it is shock, I guess.

Is that a good idea, pushing someone back with both hands on their chest? Your asking to get knocked out.
Personally, i find getting hit in the face is significantly more shocking

Depends how close they are and on the situation. A strike to the face may not be warranted right away. It also depends how much bigger than me they are.

if youve made the choice to go "hand on" why avoid the face?And if size has you worried, better not go hands on, just buy him a drink and complement his shirt or something

It isn't that bad of tactic really. If you take into account the average Joe, that you are throwing out your hands more like punches instead of "shoving" and that you plan to create distance to get away or re-assess the situation (as opposed to outright striking the individual) it can be real useful.

In fact, I wrote up a post about how to break a clinch using The Bump which is essentially a shove to the chest. Done correctly, you can create a lot of distance and still cover yourself fairly well against getting knocked out.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

Punching someone outright would put you in a bad legal position. Also, you might be better served to get away from a situation instead of miring yourself in a fight.

Then its not really for fighting its for escaping. I agree a powerful push has SOME use, but as an offensive maneuver compared to a punch id say its less effective.
