I often have people ask me, lately, ‘Why are you showing a strike with your arm up like that? Why don’t you just punch the guy straight in the nose?’
A simple punch to the nose, eye gouge would do and is preferable. Most of what you people have seen me do are basic strikes to the face to get to my mechanics. I actually use mostly cupped hand blows, chin jabs, and strikes to the eyes as my mainstays because they work.
