To create an Axe hand simply extend
your fingers keeping them together, then extend your thumb as this will
prevent your hand from cupping on impact. The Axe hand employs the entire
surface area from the edge of the hand along the ulna edge of the forearm
to just below the elbow as a striking weapon. It can be used to strike
in a variety of ways to a variety of targets, primarily the throat the
sides and back of the neck, under the nose the bridge of the nose as well
as the forearms and wrists. The beauty of this strike is that you can
throw it from any where standing, seated even from a lying position.

from a seated position up under the nose.
