HI all. I was wondering what is the status of the back fist strike and the reverse knife hand strike in sparring? Are they both legitimate strikes? The reason I ask is that you don't really see them used anymore and when they are thrown they have the scope to be very sloppy or uncontrolled. Thanks! Jon

Hi Jon, sorry for the delay been in Cyprus

My understanding is any technique that is executed unopposed / controlled is a legal / scoring technique. Problems arose with the spinning back fist as it was thrown without control and the ref issued a warning, coaches and students started to assume that back fist was an illegal technique.

Hi Mr Skyrme, thanks for that clarification.

Was Cypress a holiday or were you on business?
