How to Uppercut in a Street Fight
Effective punch for the streets
Often when we look at fights on the TV or in movies, we often see uppercuts as a great self-
defense technique. Indeed, this strike can be effective and that’s why we’ll show you exactly
how to uppercut in a street fight.
Firstly, what we often fail to realize is that a traditional “closed fist” uppercut is not always the
best self-defense tactic. Especially if your attacker is much taller and bigger then you.
Chances are, an uppercut won’t have the desired effect.
Try using an open hand palm strike
I mean don’t get me wrong, an uppercut punch can do a lot of damage! But depending on
the angle and your position, an palm strike can be very effective.
That said, you should include open hand striking in your self-defense training.
Performing an uppercut with an open palm strike can have a great effect and give you a
significant advantage towards your opponent.

A devastating strike for self-defense
If performed well, an open palm strike uppercut goes underneath the jaw and creates a
powerful impact upon contact.
Additionally, if you’re able to do a double open palm strike towards the jaw, your chances of
defeating your attacker are much greater.
The impact of a double palm strike is very powerful and can severely injure your opponent,
giving you a much-needed advantage in a dangerous situation.
