So aslan are there any other cool nerve strikes we should know about?
Many. Search for info on "Control Point" or "Pressure Point" Tactics; there's a bunch of them. Some are "strikes"; many others are just application of pressure.
The inside of the thigh a third of the way up above the knee, the inside of the bicep, the junction behind the bottom of the ear (just below the skull bone in the back, between the spine and ear, basically). Lots of "joint" control applications as well; wrist-locks, etc.
One of the funniest things (call me sadistic) was when stopped with a VERY drunk driver. Was new, and was riding with a senior deputy; we'll call him "Larry". The drunk was arguing and belligerent, and refused to get out or even unlock the door, although his window was down completely. Larry repeatedly asked him to get out or unlock the door, not wanting to reach in to unlock it, as that would put him at a leverage disadvantage with the guy. (I was standing on the off side rear quarter panel.)
While repeatedly refusing to exit the vehicle, the drunk got more & more hostile, until the fourth or fifth time Larry asked, the drunk responded with something like, "I'll get out & kick your ass."
Two seconds later, Larry's got the guy on the ground face down, pulling his arms around behind his back. He'd just grabbed the drunk, right hand under the mandibular, left hand "ridged" under the nose, and had him out the window & on the ground amazingly quick. You get your forefinger's first knuckle under someone's nose joint with the right pressure, and they WANT to go wherever you're pulling.
When I joined Larry on the driver's side, all he said was, "Watch the tater." I didn't understand, until I saw (and then smelled) the lump in the rear of the drunk's pants. bleep :crap:
Hadn't thought about that in a long time: "Watch the tater"... :dgrin:
