Savate, or French Kickboxing, uses kicks and open-handed slaps. Striking with a closed fist was legally akin to striking with a deadly weapon, thus the evolution to open-handed attacks. That law would make anyone's "closed fist" a "deadly weapon" - not just for people who were explicitly registered.
