    me again.
    umm. we train a lot of jurus lately and there is a technique
    where we point te fingers in a bird beak kind of form and with the wrist we beat up to the chin. I thought some sort of wrist uppercut or something.

    My question is whether there are other styles that use this technique?
    and what the real name of this technique is? :thinking:

    There is something similar in a few MA's including Lau Gar although i am not entirely sure how or when to use it effectively.

    It's in many styles of Karate (called Koken).
    Check out the goju-based kata "Tensho". There's koken at with either hand and both at once.
