Sock in the jaw


Movies routinely stage brawls, with bad guys punching good guys and good guys punching bad guys, with repeated socks to jaw.

Fact is a sock in the jaw will often lead to a broken jaw or a broken hand.

It is typically done by trick photography --- the clenched fist --- smacking the open palm of the puncher. (The hand is quicker than the eye.) The sound is put in later in post-production.
