    Can anyone tell me the Korean name for the open hand with splayed fingers. My daughter seems to think its two words. Both start with an s and the second one may end 'iggy'. TIA

    Could be a few things (excuse any spelling errors):
    • a palm strike (with open fingers) would be Pyung Soo
    • initial opening of the fingers prior to most techniques would be Sohn Sahl Li Ki, this causes the tendons in the wrist to expand with the intention of loosening the opponent's grip
    • set of techniques taught right at the start of the KSW journey are Sohn Pae Ki, these are wrist escapes that start with the Sohn Sahl Li Ki movement (as above)
