    Everyone who I hit, will die someday. I am convinced it is a delayed effect of the strike.

    I refuse to believe this until I see evidence. Someone you hit may in fact be immortal, and we don't know it. Or they may have already died before you hit them.

    Pretty sure if someone hits you in the throat hard enough you'll die...

    Corpse punching. It’s all the new rage.

    Possibly, but as far as I know I’m not immortal. Or undead. And I’ve seen no evidence suggesting each person @Flying Crane has hit is also not immortal or undead. Or just plain dead. He could have a thing for hitting corpses.

    Is it really that new though? I remember Rocky going to the butcher and hitting the hanging cows when he was preparing for Apollo.

    There is no such thing as hidden and deadly secret techniques. School yard kids know about eye gouges, throat punches, clapping ears, etc. Whoever is selling secret, forbidden, deadly, et al techniques is either a delusional jackass, charlatan, or both.

    There are no secrets. Outside the context of competition and sparring where the safety of participants is important, there aren’t any forbidden techniques. There’s no substitute for hard work consistent training, and experience regardless of what the fly by night crash course in SD training people try to tell you and sell you.

    Mic drop.

    well, you can off somebody with a throat punch (caught a friend in the throat one time, during a friendly match of tag. My big toe got her right in the little dimple at the base of the throat! She choked for a couple of minutes! And that was by accident. With a crushed larynx, one is in deep doo doo)

    As it is, self defense classes have the aim to give the participants a little knowledge and some tools to feel good about themselves. The majority of people won't ever need it, and if they do they will be stunned and frozen, because a close friend, relative or colleague will be the attacker, somebody they have known and trusted!

    And the aim of the participants is to go home in one or the fewest pieces possible.
    So somebody loses and eardrum or two...(pressure point right by the earlobe....) a hit in the nose? Pure gold! The tears are involuntary! And it hurts. A nosebleed is better yet. And you can't kill somebody by pushing their nose into their brain!

    But yeah...in a worst case scenario, throat and knees would be my prime target....
