Make it full palm or lower on the arm (ie: rested on elbows), something exact so there's no "discretion" involved.

I also believe head strikes should be allowed if the fighter delivering the strikes is on his back, ie: upkicks, even if his opponent has taken a knee or is otherwise "downed" as well.
Strong points. I like 'em!
