Default Ear slap

How effective is this technique in an actual fight?

One of my friends got a burst ear drum after taking one of these,but he didn't seem to notice it until the fight ended...

Is it as powerful as a classical knuckle hook? Is it effective if a smaller guy does it on a bigger guy?

My goal is to find a safer way to do hooks,to avoid hand injury,so if you have any other alternatives to the ear slap,please say them on this thread...

Lookin forward to a response from user SevenStar,since this is a trademark bouncer strike. (yes,I've been lurking around the forrum for a while... )

If you find an opening, go for it. However, you might get sued afterward if they get a hold of you legally.

You claim to have lurked, yet you expect bouncer techniques from the newer SevenStar and not the older samuraiprotocol. What is this?

Eh, done hard enough you can fuck em up enough to make them lose their sense of balance. The pain might not be felt through the adrenaline, but adrenaline doesn't help you balance. Your friend probably didn't get hit hard enough or with the proper technique. Remember to cup your hands. Alternative to a knuckle hook can be a hook, but with the heel of the palm.

Default Re: Ear slap

Ear slaps are good because they hurt, and disorientate your opponent, and if you can burst the ear drum, it completely fucks their center of balance, they wobble around like a baby giraffe.

Ear slaps can do more than just hurt and disorient.

They can and frequently do cause instant incapacitation. Sometimes even a KO.

Like everything else in a fight nothing is garuanteed and the not even an expertly delivered ear slap will work 100% of the time.

It is still a very good technique well worth mastering and just might save your hide one day.

Got hit a few times with an ear slap. It hurt, made me dizzy and gave me a short yet annoying ring in my ears. Definately useful.

Palm techniques are great for two reasons:

1.the softer surface still provides hard contact but without the self injuring bone on bone impact when hitting a hard surface with your fist.

2. It's humiliating. Getting slapped takes away a person's manhood because slapping is considered girly. I hit men, I slap bitches! Say that to a guy as you slap him to sleep. Most times when I slap a dude, his first reaction is hesitation; he's trying to comprehend that he really just got slapped use that time to your advantage. of course a well placed palm can also KO someone

As far as your hook punch goes, don't use a horizontal fist - it increases your chances of breaking your pinky knuckle. Instead, hold yourfist vertical, palm facing inward. this method is much safer
