i of course prefer gloves, or closed striking.

but palms offer an interesting aspect too. with palms it seems a lot more limited. this forces fighters to rethink a lot of commonly used strategies. just another way to display skill- which is cool too

i prefer the open palmed gloves of pride. it allows for technical grappling. but make no mistake i strike with my fists, i find open palm striking awkward too...

Open palm is the way to go when just starting out. Especially if it is closed fist to the body. It gets up and coming fighters the ring experience and the feel of fighting in front of large audiences. It is definetely the way to go when starting out. Some of the best fights I have seen ahev been open hand. I would still have to say closed fists/glove though.

Glove. Im with you on the awkward. For me to Palm strike, I feel like my fingers could easily get broken if my aim is off, or they move the wrong way, and Its only somewhat comfortable in a downward arc, for jabs it feels very awkward.
