I just have to ask, why does it matter?
The physics involved are unique. This isn't blunt and/or brute force. It's whipping power. And I demonstrate it - quite to my own surprise - with hands that are better suited to playing piano. Look again at the video I supplied. Do you see thick fingers? Do you see hands capable of bone-crushing power? And yet my middle knuckle penetrates with ease.

Oral history - which has its issues.
So, Mike... Inquiring minds want to know. What is your favorite "kill shot" Uechi technique?

This is the Bak mei way of doing a shoken, were you use the thumb and the knuckle as a weapon, apparantly this used to be the way Wing chun punched as well......so maybe it was something like this, because there are many places around the head and neck where this punch could prove fatal.
