Four Finger Poke - Martial Arts Self-Defense Technique

This page provides details for the four finger poke. This self-defense technique is a variation of the traditional two finger poke (scissor poke or Three Stooges poke). While the four finger poke looks like a Vulcan salute, it is a stronger reinforced finger poke than the two finger version.

This strike 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). The four finger poke is most often used against an attacker's eyes.
