Whip Strike (鞭打, Benda), also known as the Whip of Mercury (水銀の鞭, Suigin no Muchi), is a special technique from manga series of Baki the Grappler.

In Chinese Kenpo, the skill is taught as the Columbus' Egg (コロンブスの卵, Koronbusu no Tamago) technique.


Whip Strike is the method of making the body as fluid as possible to enable it to act as a whip.

This allows for the usage of the arms being as flexible as a whip that allows for the user to perform powerful "slaps" which affect the largest organ, the skin. The pain is enough to cause most people to instantly cry out in pain. Although this technique is strong, Baki Hanma and Yujiro Hanma rarely uses it, because they claims that this technique is good for a child and woman, not a skill for a man.

Baki, who's body was constantly put through strenuous training was no different when faced with Yujiro's Whip Strike. The pain was intense enough to cause him to jump around in pain which leads you to believe he'd never been in that much pain at one moment before in the series.
