can a loose fist cause damage?

I recently had someone tell me that he fights with a loose fist. Because he felt more relaxed that way. I told him I don't think a loose fist could do any significant damage. And his reply was a fist is a fist. It will do damage tight or loose. Any of you martial artists or mma fans know if this is fact?


Your friend is correct in what he said about a loose fist. In martial arts everyone is taught that they should tighten their fist as much as possible when punching. That is believed by many to make the fist harder and a better weapon. The purpose of a fist strike is to transfer energy to the target. Having a tight fist is good for beginners to protect their fist and their wrist. However, the down side is that it is impossible to tighten your fist without tightening the muscles in your arm. The tighter the arm the slower the punch or strike. Having the arm and fist relaxed allows you to strike/punch faster and also not tire yourself out as quickly. My second Karate instructor told us that he almost flunked his black belt test. The testing board told him that he did a great test except for one thing. They asked him why he punched with his hand open or relaxed. They had not taught him that way. he explained that he used less energy and could punch faster by starting the punch with the hand relaxed then tightening it just before it struck. They took the answer as correct and he passed his Shodan test. When training or teaching others I teach them to use a more relaxed fist than what others teach. At 59 I strike harder now using that concept then I did when I was younger, stronger, faster, and used a tight fist. ...

You clench the fist upon contact. Anyone that knows how the body works knows that less tension allows for more speed. When you tense up upon contact, that's when you dish the most damage.

If you want to break your hand, you use loose fist, if you want to break jaw, you clench fist.
possum | Nov 13, 2013
Yes, it can cause damage - to you. Punch properly, to protect your hand and wrist. What your friend may have been saying was that he keeps his hand loose, but when he punches, he clenches tightly. There's nothing wrong with that, since doing it loose reduces a "tel" (the fist is a bellicose telegraph that you are going to strike). A loose fist also relieves fatigue as well. So overall, it isn't a bad strategy, but, it must be practiced and perfected so as not to accidentally hit before clench. That he says a "fist is a fist" shows he's not thinking clearly. That's like saying "a car is a car", or "a doctor is a doctor". There are good fists, and there are bad fists. A fist that is loose on impact is bound to break. Don't do it.

Tense is slow, relaxed is fast. Basic physics tells us that the faster you can throw a punch the harder it will be. Couple that with good technique in hip rotation, and you get a really damaging punch. But you can't have a relaxed hand, then one that hits hard. So the "trick" as others have said is to be relaxed right up until the point of impact, then tense it up.
Artist | Nov 13, 2013
Yes it can, to your fingers. As others have well said, the less tension that you are putting into your hand, the faster it willl move. So, it order to gain a lot of power on impact, throw the punch with your fist relaxed, and tense it right before impact. The faster the punch moves the more power it will have, but you need to tighten before impact to prevent injury. It would be a good idea to practice this on a heavy bag or something. Make sure you're doing it correctly, improper punches can cause injury.
Edward | Nov 13, 2013
I've been hit by a guy that used a loose or open fist strike. It hurt almost as bad as his closed fist strikes. He could throw them faster because he stayed relaxed through the whole movement. This gave him a quicker recovery. He would only use them on body shots though. He preferred the closed fist because of the increased power when you tense on contact. I don't know that the slight benefits of striking this way out weight the drawbacks. As mentioned, you are more likely to injure yourself.
Kokoro | Nov 14, 2013
Pugpaws has a great explanation, I use to stike with a tight fist as the years went by I learned more and more about stike in with a relaxed hand and variations of makeing relaxed fists. When you learn it correctly the relaxed fist is far more powerful, but it is not always something for beginners should learn

Why do they beat me up when I stand up for others?

Okay I'm a thirteen year old boy and I'm pretty average for a typical kid at my school. About average grades, I don't really think I'm particularly weird I could be but I don't know, I'm not really brave, and am kind of weak. And like the majority of the school, I'm severely bullied. Just a little story about last year what I saw these girls doing to my friend. Well not really my friend, my fellow classmate who gets bullied. So here's what happened, I was walking to my locker, when I saw five or six girls surrounding a girl I knew named, June (not her real name) And so I heard them mocking her about how she was a virgin. And I'm thinking that we are only thirteen, we should be doing normal stuff like video games. So I walked up to the crowd, and told them to leave her alone, because sex isn't something that you should do so young. One of them slapped me, and and said that it wasn't my business and then they walked away. I help June up and she thanked me. But you know what she asked me then? She asked me to have sex! I understand why she asked, but honestly it's not really what I would say is a good way to solve her problems. I told her no because its not right to do it when you're thirteen. And she left looking like she was going to cry again! That same weak, the girl who slapped me had her boyfriend (I'm guessing the one she had sex with) and he beat the crap out of me! I got a black eye and a broken jaw because I was trying to help that girl! My family is well aware of it and so is the principle. But they are not doing anything about it. After that day I've tried my best to not get on the bullies bad side but I still got two more black eyes over the summer. So my question is why do the get pleasure from beating us up? Are they sadistic or something? How do I stop it, I don't like getting punched in the face or the gut every time I try to stand up for myself or my friends? Please help I'm sorry it's so long.


i respect you as someone who was also bullied i ...took matters into my own hands by beating a bully within a inch of his life with a baseball bat in dark ally thats how i scared the bullies away alright listen from now on you need to survive and remember that you can only apply smoothing cream to others dont take risks find a teach if you can here is some advice *if your about to get surrounded get a weapon a peice of wood ,knife, and bottle and break it use it as a knife and yell "ILL CUT ANYBODY WHO COMES NEAR ME!!" this will make them think twice *take up boxing or martial arts *fight dirty (its you or them) kick them in the nuts,bite,claw there face,poke there eyes *make an example: defend yourself and when you win a fight keep beating them dont stop you must hurt them this way you will scare others that might do you wrong ("oh snap this guy is gona beat the stuffing out of me!") *get a ring they sell these huge rings that have strange shapes but if you punch someone while wearing them you might crack there skull try finding one *dont wear accessory's no neckless no diamonds no suggestive shirts be as plain as possible! *never alone: you must never ever be alone make sure to be surrounded by people at all cost preferably walk in a group with friends bullies always go after lonely targets *fight back!! you must not be a push over next time some one hits you you hit them back (hit them hard!) (and if a girl hits you slap her back!) *bulling is like hunting its a game of 2: you can stalk a bully when he is alone you can beat the shit out of him and run (i suggest you consider carefully if you decide to do this) *media:maybe you can get the medias attention send letters make youtube videos and tell the world of your suffering and maybe the media will come

I would guess that the girl that slapped you wanted to provoke you so she could get you in trouble. She probably has told lies about you, like you slapped her or something else. Beside it's not a good idea to tell them they shouldn't do something, just to leave her alone. Besides you don't know the whole story, you just walked up out of the blue. There may be more to it. Some people need to be stopped before they turn out really bad. I think I would be tempted to take them to court for assault. What do your parents say? You might also be able to go over the principles head or threaten too. Ask the principle and everyone else, teachers and all, what to do, maybe they have some good ideas. There is also a lot online about bullying. Some of it is probably pretty good, if you search enough.

    DARK ART OF DEATH???

    NOTE: Two reviews written by me are in this section. For some reason, volume 2 of this series ("Weapons at Hand") is listed seperate from the other three volumes, and Amazon further erred by placing my review for that book in this section as well! I am writing this to let readers know that, unlike "Weapons at Hand," volume 1 of this series is NOT "5-star" material! Let there be no confusion about that!Of all the questionable "atemi-waza" and "pressure-point" books available, "Black Medicine" is one of the best. However, like these other books, the effectiveness of these strikes is greatly exaggerated. Sure, gouging an eye or blowing out a knee will end most fights, but if you attempt to grind your knuckles into a nerve cluster or pull some silly stunt like the "Vulcan nerve pinch" in a real right against a determined adversary, he'll just laugh in your face before slamming said face into the nearest wall! Pressure points take years to master, and are of dubious value,... 3/5 Tyr Shadowblade (TM) (Denver, CO) - See all my reviews, April 18, 2003

    Being the author of several books on the martial arts and fighting, I am always looking for books of exceptional quality to add to my library. If I have a book in my library, it's definitely worth owning. One such book is N. Mashiro's, "Black Medicine: The Dark Art of Death."This was one of the first books that I ever purchased years ago when I was in high school and starting to learn about the martial arts.

    0 5/5 Dr. B. Borawski - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ProForce Square Hand Target (Misc.) I bought this as a hand target to help my daughter practice martial arts. The straps, foam, and cover are both very high quality. Although our dog ate through most household items easily, he was only able to chew a tiny hole in the corner of the cover. One word of warning is that since this cover is not only tough, it can be a bit rough. You can easily get some rug burn on knuckles with an accidental glancing blow. Next time, I might consider the mitt type targets as these can be a bit awkward to move and orient quickly. Nevertheless, if you are looking for this type of target, I would recommend this one. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 15, 2013

    A great addition to your self-defense repertoire

    Like all of Christensen's works, this one is very practical. It is also exceptionally well-illustrated with hundreds of clear, easy to understand photographs and packed with nasty, painful, and effective techniques that all serious martial artists ought to know. In fact, when it comes to actual street fighting, these techniques can be just as important as the traditional punches, kicks, locks, and throws that we practice every day.Whether you study a traditional martial art or a modern combatives system, these applications are a great addition to your repertoire of self-defense techniques. They are all simple, painful, easy to execute with only a few inches of space, give direction to the attacker, and have both psychological and physical shock value. You will learn how to cause pain using your fingers, knuckles, knees, shin, and forehead to pinch, twist, rip, hook, claw, press, and flick vital targets.

    Practical, realistic, and sometimes extremely brutal, techniques for real self-defense!

    "The Brutal Art of Ripping, Poking, and Pressing Vital Targets" by Loren W. Christensen is a book full of what some people would call dirty fighting techniques. But as Christensen points out, all fighting is dirty. This is not sport, it's fighting. In the ugliness that is a street fight, techniques to the eyes, throat, ears, groin, nerve points, and other acutely vulnerable targets are not foul, but necessary to ensure you go home unhurt and it is your attacker that regrets attacking you.While this book is over 270 pages, it has less written words than many of Christensen's books. There are over 400 clear photographs illustrating the techniques Christensen provides in this text. Christensen's criteria for techniques included in this book were that they be simple, they hurt, they are executable within just a few inches of space, they give direction to the attacker, and they have psychological and physical shock value.The book is full of pictures of simple... 5/5 Alain B.

    Lives up to the title

    VanCook has written the best introduction to the field of self-defense since Franco's general work on the subject some time back -- and he's gone Franco one better for the ordinary Joe who wants to be able to defend himself, but doesn't necessarily want to be an athlete. My personal bookshelves have 4 feet of books devoted to this subject area, and I've read many more than I own. I can say without reservation that VanCook's work is the best general introduction to the field that I have read. Beyond that, it is a provocative and unconventional treatment of self-defense that has much to offer even to an expert. Real World Self-Defense covers mental preparation, legal issues, weapons from firearms down to OC spray, unarmed combat and training considerations. Further, his conclusions in all these areas take into account the findings of recent research on the body's capabilities under the severe stress of having to fight for survival -- a whole area of research that the... 5/5 T.

    (4.2/5)
    Paladin Press

    Will change your definition of "weapon"

    These days, it's bad legal hygiene to carry weapons, and using them, even in self-defense, can result in compulsory participation in legal proceedings both civil and criminal. Sure, you were attacked, and you defended yourself-- but you had a gun or a knife or whatever, and so you must have been out looking for trouble. And if you fought back with an actually effective weapon, such as a firearm with hollowpoint ammunition, well, you broke the law-- guilty, case closed in a lot of states. It seems as if district attorneys are getting confused about who the victims are. Poor criminals! How are they supposed to get by if citizens arm themselves?So most of us go around feeling defenseless and hoping we stay on the right side of the statistics column. Others carry weapons and risk getting hassled by cops or facing juries. This book changes all that by making the world your armory, and after you read it, you will never be unarmed again. Nor will you have to put your freedom in... 5/5 Scott Burright (Laramie, WY USA) - See all my reviews, February 15, 2006

    Basic, Yet Sound Information on the Subject!

    This is going to be perhaps one of my shortest reviews. Why you might be asking? Well simply put, there is really no reason to go into great detail on this or any of the books in the Black Medicine series because if you have any interest at all in the subject in which is the focus of these books, then all you need to know is this, "Quit reading this, or any of the reviews on this book and buy it and study the material presented within its pages."Although there are never any real in-depth looks at any one particular subject in these books, the author has really done a good job at presenting some very sound and realistic information concerning various aspects of defending yourself against an attacker.This particular volume focuses on the various parts of the human body that can be used as weapons against an attacker, followed by a section on various common items that can be turned into a weapon. Some of these items are obvious, while others aren't. I personally... 4/5 Shawn Kovacich "Shawn Kovacich" (The Greatest Little City in the World) - See all my reviews, November 25, 2008

    0 2/5 Barbara J. Wowk - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Revgear Leather Focus Mitts (Sports) The mitts are very flat and do not conform to the shpae of a hand. This makes it very painful on the extended fingers holding the mitt when the mitt is punched. It only took two hits for me to send them back. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 11, 2012
