"Quite simply, the deadliest blow in all of martial arts. He hits you with his fingertips at 5 different pressure points on your body, and then lets you walk away. But once you've taken five steps your heart explodes inside your body and you fall to the floor, dead."

The Five-Point-Palm Exploding-Heart-Technique is the most fatal martial arts strike used in "Kill Bill: Vol. 2" by Beatrix Kiddo to kill Bill.


Known for being the most deadly blow in all of martial arts, the move consists of a combination of five strikes with one's fingertips to five different pressure points on the target's body. After the target walks away and has taken five steps, their heart explodes in their body and they fall to the floor.


Although its origin is unknown, one man was known to have mastered this deadly blow in his younger years: Pai Mei.

The Move is seen many times in a deleted scene of Kill Bill Vol. 2, where Pai Mae uses it to massacre an entire school of monks in mere minutes, demonstrating its power and ability for a ruthless but quick death to its victims.


The first and only master of the technique was Pai Mei, who in turn taught it to Beatrix Kiddo, for use in her final fight against Bill. It is unknown why or how Pai Mei taught Beatrix the technique and not one of his former students: Elle Driver or Bill. But it is apparent that Pai Mei saw a fundamental difference in heart and character in Beatrix that wasn't present in Bill or Elle.

This move was taught to Beatrix Kiddo by Pai Mei, and used by Beatrix to kill Bill. Nobody is quite sure why Pai Mei taught Beatrix this deadly move and not Elle nor even Bill, however, Pai Mei must have seen a fundamental difference in character between Beatrix and either Bill or Elle. This is suggested because, although Beatrix represented everything he despised, he agreed to train her. It is ironic however, as he would go on to train Elle under the same conditions except the latter would eventually murder him.

The Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique is the deadliest, most fatal blow in all of martial arts.

The MoveEdit

The Move consists of a series of powerful jabs from the finger tips into 5 different pressure points on the victims body. Once finished, the victim is then allowed to walk away. However once they take 5 steps, their heart literally explodes inside their body, killing them instantly.
