Trembling hands of ineffectualness

Name Space:

Trope
A convention often seen in Chinese martial-arts dramas. In fight scenes, trembling hands are often used as a visual shorthand that a character has been rendered combat ineffective. Usually emphasized by having the character raise their trembling hands to face-level with fingers loosely apart. Look of fear and/or pain on his face optional. Often happens to those on the receiving end of a Curb-Stomp Battle.
