This is a discussion on Example of Central Nervous System disruption - video within the Defensive Carry & Tactical Training forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; We do this in every class, this was in Indianapolis earlier this month. One knuckle punch from one inch away. Imagine doing it at combat ...
Forgive me, but what am I supposed to see here? I saw a grinning guy take a noogie to his forehead, continue to grin, and then the video ended. When I think of disruption of the CNS, I generally don't expect to see a guy barely move while standing and show no sign of injury or distress.
I saw the change in the receiver's posture and muscle control. Can you describe what is being antagonized to cause the disruption. When you mention the combat force with an instrument would this be a knock out effect similar to a traditional brain cuncussive knock out?
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. TR
Imagine brain matter as jello in a plastic bowl. Now tap the side of the bowl and see what happens.
The same thing happens to your brain. Any time your brain sloshes around in the skull your going to have "torsional busing" and you get a concussion.
as we have seen in the news lately, even a seemingly minor bump can have devastating results.
Now imagine that same bowl of jello getting hit with a sharp blunt object like a knuckle........your "gray matter" is just a big sponge and it will absorb energy by expanding. the expansion will radiate out like waves in a pond (except at the speed of sound) the expansion will do all kinds of bad things to brain tissue.
Now, the Brain is a rather remarkable organ (except in my Ex-wife ) and can take a pretty severe blow, but medical treatment needs to be administered rather quickly
HAPPY NEW YEAR
If the ultimate point is that a sharp blow to the head is a good idea in self defense, then they should publish an article in the journal, "Duh."
I'm not trying to be a butt, but this seems to be treading close to the idea of mystical, magical pressure point manipulation of a type displayed by charlatans like George Dillman.
take another look that was a simple tap. What do you think is going to happen if you did that with a lot of force???
The favorite weapon of the Hells Angles is not a gun, knife or rifle................is a ball peen hammer.
If you hit someone in the head with the "Ball peen" part, they won't survive.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
With the open palm, it's also known as the "preacher's punch". Think, "hee-ahll!" But the puncher in video cheats by starting at one inch (or slightly more) and drawing back another couple of inches for greater travel and release of force. I've had enough "demonstrations", and this is not something with which I would cooperate. It makes me uncomfortable to watch.
-Blackstone’s Commentaries 145–146, n. 42 (1803) in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008)Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force
when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
Point being, be skeptical any time someone talks about disrupting the CNS by doing something other than damaging it severely or destroying it. Even Tasers/stun guns, which are unquestionably disrupting the CNS, have a variable effect. Severing someone's spine or blowing their brain apart much less so.
i'm in shock. i want my click back.

More mall ninja self defense jibberish. I feel sorry for the dummies that paid money to find out that if you whack a guy in the noggin it hurts him.

Sorry you are not impressed. The gentleman struck described his knees buckling and a white flash of light. One of the reasons that this was done was the discussion of the use of flashlights with or impact or TID bezels. Again the punch was done with one knuckle from about one inch away. The idea was to show the effect of that strike using a concentration of force on a small surface area.
Strikes to different parts of the head from different angles will result in various levels of disruption. This "third eye" location is sort of the fuse box for your body.- George
He may describe all of that but it is not shown in the video.
The Video really shows us nothing usefull.
The story you tell of what happens after the video stops is more informative by far.
edit.. Ive never been in a fist fight ever but I was punched in the face twice while I was sitting down. I was hit twice very hard and saw a bright flash of light. I got up and jumped on the big (very big) drunk SOB and pinned him in a full nelson.
The bright flash of light did little to stop me.
That is whispering eye if you saw Role Models.
