Fudo ken (פודו קן) is the Japanese name of a fist in the martial art of Ninjutsu.

Description of Fudo Ken

While clenching the fingers to form a solid, space-less box one hits with the first knuckles. Attention must be used to straighten the back of the hand in one line with the wrist bones so that the energy from the punch does not dislocate the wrist.
