The uppercut is a powerful punch originating below the aggressor’s line of vision. It is executed in an upward motion traveling up the centerline of the aggressor’s body. It is delivered in close and usually follows a preparatory strike that leaves the primary target area unprotected. When delivered to the chin or jaw, the uppercut can render an aggressor unconscious, cause extensive damage to the neck, or sever the tongue.
The striking surface is the first two knuckles of the fist.
Target Areas of the Body
