I was teaching a white belt class various knife hand strikes. It consisted of inward, outward, reverse while doing them from different stances.
When I was teaching the outward knife hand strike from the walking stance I paused for a second because I was unsure which line the knife hand stops on.
My question is: Does the knife hand stop on the chest line or the shoulder line?
I had a student stand in front of me and we discussed the basics of how a strike goes beyond it's intended target so it could not stop the exact moment it makes contact.
Am I making this too technical or is there something in writing somewhere as to which line an outward knife hand strike from a walking stance stops at?
