Hi wait 4 me plz.

I've trained with Lee (will do again) and he's a good guy. Hammerfist is one of the core strikes of his Urban Combatives curriculum, taught as delivered to the face via the fence etc (from my experience of it).
Others don't agree with this, here's a link to Neal Martin saying just that:

I personally would rather palm strike and FOLLOW with hammerfist IF it seemed applicable - hey, it's situational after all ;-)

What do you think?

"Yeah, I think everyone must read the non-fiction "self-help" book/manual called Left of Bang. For those unfamiliar with the somewhat newer military phrase, “left of bang” means before the fight/problem and trying to predict it. Bang is…well...the bang. It’s happening. Right of bang is the aftermath. I think we all in the martial training business, as well as people needing/seeking the topics of self defense stuff, fighting crime and war, etc. have an obligation to read this book/manual.
     New? It’s not new stuff, harkening back to the Gift of Fear, but is it new to new people and sort of newly, smartly  organized with modern jargon that catches attention. It is a very fast collection of everything put out in like, oh, the last 20 something or so years on prepping for pending violent problems..."

"Dr. Michel Farivar, author of the book Ninja Tools and Weapons interviewed Hock Hochheim and we wanted to share the interview with our readers prior to the magazines publication.  Mr. Hochheim is one of the  most highly acclaimed close combat instructors in the world.  His unique blend of military, police and rich martial arts training make him uniquely qualified in his field.  His near total immersion in the close combat martial arts are legendary as exemplified by the resounding successes of his international training seminars.  Additionally he makes available his teachings in what we here consider the best tactical training videos on the topic at Close Quarter Combat Shopping. We think the question and answer approach between Dr. Farivar and Mr. Hochheim reveals why the world renowned Close Quarter Combat Instructor is in such demand."

"It occurred to everyone capable of semi-deep thought that if any person looked like Charles Bronson in Asia, on some psychological level, a movie fan would see this look-alike person and may immediately register that the innocent Bronson-looker had some of the action star’s traits and skills. Psychological “projecting” they call in..."

"Ever notice just how many fighting systems and instructors innocently base their program on how they perceive a bar fight to be? Never two E.R. doctors fighting over a hospital policy. Never two neighbors arguing about the dog poop. Never the angry husband showing up at the factory to beat up the boss. Mostly young men in bars. Even the verbal deescalation seems to be mostly about the hands-up, verbal and physical dodge of an obnoxious bar fighter. "Oh, I don't want any trouble, now sir!"
     And then, how about this utter worship of...the bouncer! It seems in numerous quarters that bouncers are some sort of revered fighters and doctors of psychology...

The hammer-fist is fine. One tool.
Lee Morrison is no better or no worse than dozens and dozens of other people teaching. he is just recently "lucky-famous."

It is unlikely anyone else will answer because this forum page is essentially dead and no one bothers to look at it.

In your opinions is the hammerfist a useful tool? Because as part of lee morrisons bare essentials caveman combatives the hammerfist being the primary strike, with the knee strike being the follow up. This curriculum was taught to a military team he trained so it must be useful. Just need some someone that has actually applied the technique to offer me there insight / opinions on it.

Back when I worked in behavior homes, the hammer fist was the overwhelmingly most popular fist for the residents to use in an attack.

Some of the same residents used the same technique whether armed or unarmed.  A hammer fist becomes the "Psycho Stab" when used with a knife, for example.

IMO it is probably a natural way for humans to hit.

That said, a shuto isn't difficult to do, and IMO is a better strike for the neck.

How would they apply the hammerfist? In like a big cycling motion bringing fist to knee?

Reason i ask is lee morrison made a dvd called caveman combatives in which he devised a compressed curriculum to which he taught to a military team that only had 2 days to learn something useful and he adapted it for civilian use. Having only 3 tools in the toolbox. Hammerfist, Seal Blitz & Knee. Hammerfist being the primary tool.

So in your opinion is the hammerfist a worthy tool?

We need to see rank holders and instructors about once every year. Or some reason why we can't. (I am very flexible.)

People listed on our instructor pages on our website, are active certified instructors. There are people not on the list that have attained various ranks to include Black Belt levels ranks in the last 20 years, but for whatever private or professional reasons, they are not recently active within this organization. They still possess these rankings, they are just not listed here on the active-duty pages. Hock is constantly improving and honing the material, as well as checking on the instructors and their progress. If he doesn't see them for a long period? They simply fall off the active-duty list.

Want back on? Attend a seminar.
