Learn how to a heel palm chin move in this self-defense video from Howcast.

So, now we are going to talk about how to use your heel palm to go straight to the chin, okay? One thing is, when you want to strike, you not only want to hit, but you also want to push a little bit. Why? Because you are going to create this motion. As you can see, her body will move a little bit. And again, you arch a person. You want to achieve that when you want to hit the bottom. When you want to distract this, to hit the bottom, you must go and push a little bit.

But how are you going to push? You want to push 45 degrees up. So she’s going to do it on me. Nice. Do it again. Boom. Nice. Do it again. Boom. Nice. Boom. Why? If I just do this, boom, she’s going to move backwards. Not going to get anything, I’m just going to get her away from me. I don’t want to do that and I want to move her, so that’s why I’m going to go up and then I can kick.

Why would I use this? It’s like, if I have to use a safe and quick way to get rid of that situation, I would use this palm instead of the jab. Why? Because the jab, again, is something that you use when you are trained, when you have the capacity of punching someone, or punching something without getting hurt.But in this case, if you are a beginner or you don’t have so much knowledge about that, I would use the palm, okay?

So that’s why you would use and that’s how you use a palm strike against the chin.
