To begin, I would like to say that out on the street, there is no such thing as a fair fight.
Only under the controlled environment of a ring (sometimes not even then) is there anything resembling a fair fight.
For many, violence may make absolutely no sense except when a person is in defense of God, country and family.
Unfortunately there are others who engage in violence because of peer pressure, ignorance, an inherent streak of meanness or perhaps out of simple boredom. Regardless of the reason,
In the movie Batman Forever, the character Two Faced explains the procedure to the Riddler on making a fist to throw a punch. Although this was a humorous scene in the movie, the sad fact is that many people actually believe by balling up your hand and swinging, you have made an effective and proper fist.
Many sprained and broken hands or wrists have been caused by trying to use an improperly made fist.
These injuries may be caused from improper wrist control, finger and/or thumb placement, as well as which knuckles of the hand hit first.
