Back Fist - Martial Arts Punching Technique
This page provides details on how to do a martial arts back fist. A more advanced version of this technique is the spinning back fist (where you use the momentum of the spin to generate more power). The back fist often used to surprise an opponent after a martial artist has missed with a standard straight punch. In Karate, a back fist strike is known as Uraken Uchi. This striking technique should not be confused with a back hand strike.
With this technique, you hit the opponent with the back of your fist & knuckles. This punch can be used as a finisher, to disorient an attacker or to strike the bridge of nose in order to make an escape. For instructions on other techniques, please visit the main Punches & Strikes section.
