Justifying injury to opponents

Postby Balloo » Sun Jan 03, 2010 7:51 pm

I love Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu, but I am ang a problem with the amount of damage it can do to your opponent. Southern Mantis uses a phoenix fist (one extended knuckle) to concentrate the power of a strike. This causes severe damage to the opponent who receives such a strike. I am debating looking into other styles such as Aikido or Chin Na as a means to end a confrontation with less damage to the opponent. Any thoughts? What would you do?

are we talking sparring, or getting jumped in an alley? that changes the tactics considerably.

Getting jumped in an alley. See the same thread in the Sparring and Fighting bit.
