Thanks Greg, but can you clarify whether Stephen knows which part of the foot is used to impart the blow in a strike attack (not a seize attack). Is it the top of the toes (the back of the hand so to speak), or the soles of the feet and claws. I've always thought it to be the former.
I accept that he considers head removal in such attacks is a myth.
