The art primarily consists of
upper-body striking techniques such as punches, elbows, head-butts, shoulder
strikes, and groin punches, but it also includes low-line kicks and knee
strikes to the legs, shins, and groin. Some camps choose to group this
kicking aspect into the art of Pananjakman, which relies on kicking and only
uses the arms defensively. Common striking targets include the biceps,
triceps, the eyes, nose, jaws, temples, the back of the neck, the ribs, and
spine, as well as the "soft tissue" areas in the body.
