See what happened during KNX15 in this vid!

The techniques used in Karate primarily involve striking with hands, feet, knees and elbows, and although it originated in humble beginnings, as an early Okinawan fighting system, Karate techniques are now used in many modern day fighting styles. Kempo, for example, is a relatively modern form, that mixes traditional Okinawan Karate techniques with other martial-arts like Jujitsu, and is the basis for many mixed martial-artists.

Learn street karate techniques #1 – Use your teeth whenever you can. If the person you are fighting against puts his/her hand at your face level, do not hesitate to sink your teeth into it. All parts of the body are perfect for biting, no matter if it is a part of the upper body or part of the lower body. Biting as a street fighting tip is going to make you a more lethal fighter.

Learn street karate techniques #2 – The body parts that should be kicked are the knees, shins, and groin. Be wary of throwing a side-kick when you are street fighting because you will need to be able to jump up fast in the event that the person you are fighting catches your leg. All of your kicks should be directed to the lower body so you don’t get knocked down. In addition, the person you are fighting will stay away from you.

Back Hand Lash
When someone gets fresh or tries to bully you and you give him the “back of your hand” in Karate, the poor guy might conceivably land on his back! The Back Hand Lash is one of the earliest striking methods in the art of Karate, dating back many centuries. In the Back Hand Lash you keep the entire hand stiff as a board, fingers extended straight out and close together. Arm should remain stiff. Use this blow in attacking the ribs or blocking an opponent’s thrust.

Side Hand Hammer Blow
This blow is facetiously called the “Hammer of Thor” because it hits like thunder and can result in temporary sense loss and paralysis. You form a clenched fist. Keep arm straight up and rigid. Then smash downward . . . and look out below!

Bottom Fist
The Bottom Fist is employed when attacking hard surfaces, like the head, elbow joint and also in blocking opponent’s blows. This Karate striking point is very effective when you’re faced with two opponents, one on each side. Smash both in the ribs simultaneously. Before they can regain their composure, you’re free … to fight another day.

Heel of Palm
Give the heel of your palm to any obnoxious heel and listen to him howl . . . for mercy. The Heel of Palm is formed by arching the hand back, almost to a 90° angle. The fingers should be bent and slightly spread. Use this position when attacking the face, nose, chin or jaw.

The Choker
Use the Choker on any smart-aleck joker. It is one of the best karate techniques you can employ. It will make him think twice-and then turn the other way. The striking point of this position is the area between the thumb and forefinger.

Back Wrist
The joint at the back of wrist is the striking point of this blow. With the palm facing you, curl your hand into a fist and bend it inward. This is an effective defensive position and will thwart most of your foe’s attacks.

Bent Wrist
A variation of the back wrist, except the fingers and thumb droop downward and away from you. This is strictly a blocking position. Use it accordingly.

Kempo, as Kenpo is also known, is the perfect form of self defense because it is actually designed with street fighting in mind. The secret behind its effectiveness is that it does not suggest that there is any single way to defend oneself in a street fight. In fact, fighters are advised to use different punches and kicks to suit the situation instead of relying on a pre-set plan of action which can easily go awry because fights rarely go according to a plan. They are trained in the principles of motion which enables them to move as desired to suit any situation. What made Bruce Lee very effective as a fighter was the fluidity and economy of his actions.
