I have (with shame) kicked a training partner in the throat. I was side kicking, at medium power and he missed the block and did not get out of the way. ( In my defense He knew what was coming as it was a drill we had ben doing for 3min or so) I thought I killed the guy he fell to the ground like a marientte that had its strings cut. He did not breath for a second and then started to wheze and gargle and cough.
Fortunaty all I had done is knocked the wind out of him, and when he tried to breath swollowed spit down the wrong hole.
That was scary though

Punching to the throat...well maybe a hard enough knife or ridge hand. It's easy enough to displace the adams apple or target either of the corotid arteries, both would affect breathing if damaged. Punches make the accuracy of the impact off, plus the neck is only so big, and the neck itself is rarely trained so most people just have a very little amount of muscle to pad the impact...leaving it #2. on the most vulnerable area list. In short; yes I would think you can kill someone if you hit them properly and hard enough...but the chances of doing this intentionally probably is less than the accident rate. So with that said, be careful.

the exception

It was really cool the doctor cut him open right on the softball field, he said mabey ten minute delay and the guy would be dead. I can joke because he made a full and complete recovery.

If the windpipe is hit and crushed then the person dies unless someone performs a tracheotomy...


In doing chokes be especially careful not to apply them across the windpipe, make sure it is sitting in the crook of your elbow otherwise it will be crushed just like a blow to the throat.

Once crushed it can never return to its normal shape without surgery...

If they're a unfit person who drinks pop and eats candy bars. Very likely. There are a couple of great corroted artery strikes in Krav Maga. But you can't use anything in real life that you don't know so well its as simple as breathing. So if yu want to use a throat strike you better practice it so much its not even fun anymore, its just something that has to be done.

I've heard it is possible but wont know for sure. I imagine with my limited knowleage of the human body that it may cause the wind pipe to collaspe and choke someone. Best to avoid stiking anywhere on the neck I think, its a very weak area, as Christopher Reeve knows (may he rest in peace) [IMG][/IMG]
But I do think knowing the most dangerous areas to hit is important, so you dont hit them by accident. I know I dont want to accidently kill anyone.

Ok Guys you want the truth I have done it. I was in an altercation a quite a few years ago and I hit my attacker (6'1"tall about 200lbs and I was 5' 9" 150lbs at the time) in the throat with a solid and when I say solid I mean it was an easy three board break shot. He dropped instantly clutching his throat. I proceeded to do a couple of stomp kicks to his face nose and mouth breaking his nose. He had no fight left in him at this point so I stopped. Did he die NO!!!!! And I hit that Dude Frickin Hard. Could it have killed another person Who Knows It didn't kill this guy.

Although I have never killed anyone, I am convinced that a good punch to the throath is fatal if the injury is not treated quickly.

When sparring, I have received punches to the nose, jaw, temple, ribs, and kicks to the knee, stomach and groin. All of those hurt but none of those ever put me out of commission. But once, I received a very light strike to the throath (an accidental strike that was not even intended to hit me!), and I could not breathe for a few seconds or swallow my own saliva for a few minutes or eat properly for the rest of the day. Imagine if it had been a real punch. I would have ended up in the operation room.

The wind-pipe is a very delicate part of the anatomy. I have heard that one of the "ancestors" of my kung fu style once ended a fight to the death with a first strike to the throath.

I tell you all: hit someone with a "phoenix eye" punch to the throath and your opponent is as good as dead. So be responsible and go for the throath in life and death situations only!
