I havent used PP in a SD situation but I have used it when play fighting with my friends.
There is a tradition in Greece that on the first night of halloween (it lasts a week in Greece) everyone goes to the centre of town and beats each other with foam baseball bats
If you hit someone's bicep with a phoenix eye (where the middle finger in a normal punch is slightly protruding) their hand opens and releases whatever they are holding.

Does that count?

Pericardium #2? Middle of bicep? The stun is probably what makes them let go.

Pericardium?
Isnt that that fibre that surrounds the heart?
I dont think its from the stun, although I recently tried to do it softly on someone and it didnt work, so you might be right.
I also used a PP on that kid who tried to slap me and I grabbed him by the throat, that was fun!

There are places to strike on the arm in a manner that will make their hand physically open or release.
I have beens shown these,had them done to me,and done them to other people,even when they are resisting.They are moves that are 'hidden' in many kata.

I've been shown the technique to make someone's hand open and performed it on myself- by accident. Playing around I went to hit my girlfriend on the leg and ended up hitting with the inside of my forearm. My hand went instantly numb and I couldn't use it for a couple of minutes. Really freaky...

There's quite a few good points on the arm that hurt like hell. If you're interested in the point location there's a really good database here
