WHAT DOES FIST BUMP MEAN IN ENGLISH?

fist bump

Fist bump

A fist bump is a gesture similar in meaning to a handshake or high five. A fist bump can also be a symbol of giving respect. It can be followed by various other hand and body gestures and may be part of a dap greeting. It is commonly used in baseball as a form of celebration with teammates, and with opposition players at the end of a game. The gesture is performed when two participants each form a closed fist with one hand and then lightly tap the front of their fists together. The participant's fists may be either vertically oriented or horizontally oriented. Unlike the standard handshake, which is typically performed only with each participants' right hand, a fist bump may be performed with participants using either hand. The fist bump symbol is informally written in electronic text by using the Japanese katakana alphabet YO, the equals sign and the English capital "E": =ƎE=.
