Learn About Martial Arts Finger Pokes or Strikes

This page shows the fundamentals behind martial arts finger pokes or strikes. This technique is also known as a scissor strike (if two fingers are utilized). This strike can be done either as a two finger poke or a four finger poke. Other finger poke or strike variations include the single finger poke, spear finger strike, etc.

This technique is an effective self-defense weapon for close combat, if you are trapped by a stronger opponent or if you have long finger nails. This technique is often used by women in order to escape an attacker (i.e. rapist).
