    Hello everybody. Ive never heard of making an italian sign with my hands and hitting someone with it. Is this an actual martial art that uses this? I know mantis makes a mantis hook with hand and hits if it is needed

    I didn't really know how to describe it brah, like the hook hand. Italians call that the finger purse, but I think it's the same position for mantis kung fu

    Troll alert Ben. This guy thinks he is being funny (I hope) with the stupid remarks.
    My apologies.

    For those wondering, the italian sign he's talking about is the "okay" sign (not the thumbs up, the one where your thumb and index finger connect, and the other three are in the air). Only thing that I can think of it being like MA-wise is either similar to a chicken wrist 'punch', or a weird eyepoke

    There is no limit to the sheer power one can posses if their words are aesthetic to the mind and tongue

    Are you under the impression that your words are?

    Incidentally, you do know that anyone can right click on the photo you claim is you, and learn that it's actually a photo of a deceased body builder, right? Dishonesty doesn't lend positive aesthetics to your words.
