Hi the brachial point is at the root of the brachial nevre where the kneck meets the shoulder.
It is GB21 I think in PP terminology.
That strike was not on this point or St9, which is not the brachial point.
It was across the side of the face.

While I am the absolute last person to debate pressure point tactics, I would suggest that even if the impact was not directly on the brachial point, the pimp's body dynamic made it so that it was close enough to generate the same effect.

That's why this video, right or wrong, has been circulating in Law Enforcement for 15 years as an example of the brachial stun.

I'm no expert either, but apart from the lousy quality of the clip and it appears that a few frames are missing, the strike could loosly have been described as an outer fore arm strike to the junction of the carotid sinus and the vegus nerve, certainly the result suggests that, definately not a strike to the brachial plexus, think Spocks Vulcan nerve grip area.
Forgive the spelling
I'm back

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.

i saw this on RealTV, and they said the guy was martial artist who hosts law enforcement seminars, which is what was going on at the time. the guy evidently saw the pimp beating on his ho and went down to tell him to stop... then knocked his ass out.

I saw this video several years ago.It's still awesome [IMG][/IMG]
The guys name is Jay Lee(spelling)and he knew what he was doing.He hosts law enforcement seminars and instructs some of L.A.P.D.
