    How do you make a fist?



    When I do a Google image search for "fist", most of the pictures show a thumb across the other fingers (B). I've always made fists with my thumb under the other fingers (C) and haven't been corrected by other people. This makes me curious as to which way of making fists is actually the most common, since I haven't really paid attention to how other people make them.

    A but I know the way to "properly" make a fist (incidentally, someone convicted of a capital murder taught me). I just haven't ever had any reason to hit anyone ever. So even though A is my natural way, if I ever had to defend myself, I'd do some version of B.

    B but my left hand might go A.

    C looks like if you hit something hard enough you'd hurt your thumb.

    If anything, your other fingers would get hurt before your thumb does.

    B is the correct way, if you try hitting anything with force in position C you stand a very good chance of breaking your thumb. It's not hard to break your hand hitting anything solid with an open fist, boxers don't wear those gloves to protect other boxers, it's to protect their hands.

    (C) / (A) reminds me of those specimen that hold utensils / pencils like below ::



    A repulsive pet-peeve.



    Please correct it.
