Hey check this video out.
http://www.steakandcheese.com/downloads/Karate_Pimp.wmv

An alternative to headhunting ie boxing. THe defender instead of using his fist uses his forearm, more surface area, and strikes the attacker in the neck, vegas nerve. The results speak for its self.
In the military we used similar techniques. If we were out in the field and broke our hand using boxing methods, our mission could be comprimised. So we used forearms and elbows alot.
I thought the video was interesting enough to show. The situation could of gone into the grappling (gracie method). Which would of taken alot longer to subdue the attacker.

Enjoy
Ed

brachial? isn't that area in your bicep? It is a Vegas nerve shot. Not a punch but a foream strike. And by the way that is a basic strike taught in Scars, TFT.
Thought I'd add a log to the fire for all those who hate Scars.

hi all, just a minor point, but i believe its spelt "vagus" nerve

whitedragon, ed

had to drag out my old ppct chart to be sure, but the brachial plexus (origin) is approximately 1/2 way between your clavicle notch and and the top most point of your trapezius

ie between the bottom of your neck and the muscles on the side of your neck

this is about on the st9 point which affects the carotid sinus through signals sent through the vagus nerve.

so youre both right - youve just been taught slightly different from each other

The Brachial Plexus (Tie In) is the target, hence the "Brachial Stun", although I guess you could call it the Vagus stun as well.

In LEO/ CO training it has been the Brachial Stun for many years. That vid is from the late 80s or early 90s.
