Example text

BASE OF THE NECK. 3 1 . A cliche of movie and television fight scenes is the judo chop, karate chop or rabbit punch to the base of the neck (seventh cervical vertebra). In films, the adversary goes down, no matter how big he is. In real life this does not happen. For street defense this is not an appropriate target. A smaller person cannot use it effectively; if a larger individual strikes a power blow against a smaller person there is a high risk of injury. To locate the target on your own self, drop your head forward and you can feel the prominent bone at the base of the back of your neck which is the seventh cervical vertebra.

Blows to the ears are taught in many old-style martial arts. My objection to this target for modern self-defense is that it is not a practical striking area for a smaller person against a larger assailant and if it is used against a smaller person there is a possibility of hearing impairment. +Equal adversary: A moderate blow can cause pain. A heavy blow might injure the inner ear. + Against a smaller person: A moderate blow can jar the head and cause pain. A sufficiently forceful blow could cause hearing impairment or brain injury.
