Myths

Punching with a key between fingers:

  • Key is unstable between fingers
  • Severe self inflicked pain as key bites into soft inner tissue of finger
  • Least effective position
  • Instead, punch or poke with a key between thumb and index (pointer) finger.

Kicking males in the groin:

  • Small target protected by thigh
  • Extremely quick reaction time, to attack is easily deflected
  • balance needed for the attack
  • Unless direct hit, the attack is minimal
  • Instead stike the inner or outer thigh, as talked about in detail here: Groin Strike
