Judderman,
I was surprised to read that you think a strike to the throat would be insufficient to stop an attacker unless it was hard enough to kill him.

A few years ago, I was hit semi contact in the throat in a sparring accident. It certainly stopped me! My throat started to swell immediately and it panicked me in a way no punch on the nose or any strangle has ever done.
What does everyone else think?

I work a lot on self control, but I wouldn't use a throat strike unless I was absolutely positive it were life or death.

I just wouldn't wanna take the risk of killing someone.

I keep seeing posts about throat strikes. I don't know about you guys, but I don't put a lot of emphasis on those or other "deadly" strikes. That isn't so much because I don't think that they work, but because I wouldn't allow myself to think that they would work against an experienced fighter. Speaking for myself, I know to keep my chin down when trading. The average person with a WEEK of boxing would know that same thing.

I just have to train for the smarter, well trained fighter. Against those guys, throat shots (and the other "deadly" strikes) just aren't going to work.

[QUOTE]Originally posted by ninja-raiden:
Because of the vigerous weight training and boxing I do, I understand the power behind a jaw punch. I would not use it if in a situation where someone is throwing strikes, but it'd be perfect for the situation described.

"Ninja i hope this doesn't offend but rather than risking a head but that in my opinion means you to sacrafice speed for power, why not try to break their nose with a punch or a palm heel? It may not have the same power but its so much faster than a head butt that could be telegraphed."

Because if performed well, a good headbutt would not only do the job, but also have the element of surprise that a punch or palm heel to the nose wouldn't have.

Of course though, I would use common sense before self defense. Depending on the attacker's size and energy level, I would try to just submission him with some basic hapkido defenses.

Use the jaw as a lever to send an blow to the nerve centers in the brain that'll take him out. Another technique that is very effective is a backhand slap to the temple. If you don't knock him out, you'll make him dizzy, but be careful it can also kill him if you use too much force.
