James Williams: Palm Strikes and Elbows for MMA and Street Application

James Williams Sensei, of Nami-ryu Aiki Heiho, demonstrates how to practice palm strikes, slaps, and elbows during bag work so as to prepare for effective striking in street and self-defense situations.

Human hands are not made to strike round hard objects that are moving. Therefore, punching people in the head when you are not wrapped and taped with gloves is not a good idea, generally.

Practicing palm strikes, slaps, and elbows during bag work prepares you for effective striking in street and self-defense situations.

Make this a regular part of your bag work. Use the same movement and principles that this series is based on. Smooth, relaxed efficient motions and energy transfers.
