    that looks like all of them, and yes the hammer grip is continental, its just easier for people to visualize rather than explaining the whole grip system.

    Some people say the hammer grip places your hand in the continental grip but the fingers are very close together like you would hold a hammer intead of being more spread out.

    Who knows, you got em all to me.
