Crane Beak Strike - Martial Arts Punches & Strikes

This page provides details on how to do a Crane Beak Strike. This technique is also known as Crow's Beak Strike, Fingers Together Strike, etc. This strike is used by a number of different martial arts but is best known for being utilized by Kung Fu.

This strike involves all of the fingers tips being put together in order to reinforce each other (as a single finger has a greater chance of bending backwards or breaking). It is used to target small vital points such as the eye and groin. The hand can also be opened in order to grab when the hand is being withdrawn.
