Police work being different and with limitations I understand your veiw Fletch. Since my training is diferent than police style tactics our strikes were taught to focus on damage more than subdue.
While I am aware of the brachial stun, our focus on targeting that area is breaking the collarbone. Same forearm strike, more down than side as in the video. With only 3-5 lbs needed to snap the collar bone, this is an effective strike also.
Just another way to deal with an adversary.
For your information;
What are Brachial Plexus Injuries?
The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that conducts signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Brachial plexus injuries are caused by damage to those nerves. Symptoms may include a limp or paralyzed arm, lack of muscle control in the arm, hand, or wrist, and lack of feeling or sensation in the arm or hand.
