Good evening and welcome to Word of the Day! A journey through the English vocabulary and the words that piqued my interest, in WotD we'll be learning a new word for each working day of the week, bar holidays, unless there's a holiday special...

Today's word is:

Fighting with the fists.

ORIGIN: early 17th cent.: probably from obsolete fisty 'relating to the fists or to fistfighting' + cuff.
