Palm Heel Strike is one of best hand strikes to use in self defense.
Striking with the palm of your hand protects your fingers, for anyone wearing rings or with long nails.
The Palm Heel Strike can be used in a variety of ways: as a push/punch type of strike, used as a slap to side of the face or body and it can be used as a rising strike under the chin. These are just a few examples.
It can be used as more than just a strike.
