I notice that alot of the fighting done by Starfleet officers in DS9 is with their two hands clasped together.

I guess they know they're dealing with some races that are stronger than they are(Klingons, romulans) and if a fistfight does occur, they need all the strength they can get

Trek Fu is pretty funny.  Everyone uses the same fighting style, except for Kirk.  I think the two-handed punch loses a lot of momentum compared to a single-handed punch.  You can't wind it up and put all your weight into one direction (which is what makes a punch work), meaning you're basically just putting the strength of your biceps into it.  Maybe Worf or Sisko can make that work, but Kira beating up Damar in Favor the Bold probably wouldn't work that well.
