Ridge Hand Strike

Ridge Hand Strike – Martial Arts

These videos and instructions will teach you how to do a martial arts “Ridge Hand Strike”. In this open hand technique, you hit a target with the thumb side of your hand (versus the knife hand strike where you are hitting with the pinky side of your hand). You need to be careful and tuck your thumb into your palm in order to avoid breaking it when striking a target.
