This is a common misconception. The blood vessels you're thinking of are the exterior carotid artery and exterior jugular vein. Those are the ones on the outside of your neck on either side of your trachea. There's also internal versions of those structures as well. They enter the skull through the spine; that's why the cervical vertebra have little holes in the sides like this:
4.) the only way for blood (and subsequently oxygen and nutrients) can get to the brain is through two veins or arteries in the neck.
While the vertebra below the neck look like this:
If what you're getting at is that targeting the exterior blood vessels of the neck via cutting, trauma or choking, then yes, damaging the ones in the front can be fatal.
To be honest, I would've assumed anyone with a forensics background would know the above info. Any class with bone landmark identification and identifying based on fragments will usually use the cranial vertebra blood vessel holes to distinguish them from thoracic and lumbar vertebra.
I used to study criminology when I wanted to be a detective. I know criminal methodology, I know anatomy well
Spinal reactions are not as reliable as some RBSD folks would have you believe. It is not reliable enough to be your main game plan for fighting. For example, I've seen finger jabs to the eyes barely phase the receiver. Other posters have written about kicks to the groin going unnoticed. The problem is that the subject is studied on a human that's not under the same state as an adrenaline fueled attacker.
5.)Without training, the body will react automatically when trauma is inflicted to specific areas such as eyes, broken bones, solar plexus, or the face. (I would say the groin or female breasts, but drug use could stop that.)
There's a whole lot of misinformation out there about knockouts, so do lots of research.
6.) There are two types of Knock out. The first is a sensory overload and the second is a concussion.
No. This is another thing that kinda jumps out from a criminology/anatomy expert.
7.) The spine is responsible for all movement.
I see where this is going, but there's a big caveat that you can't get the same force with all the striking surfaces of the body. For example, nearly everyone would be able to apply far more force with a punch than with the same motion ending in a spearhand or ipponken/phoenix eye.
9.)Force inflicts more damage if the same force is sent through a smaller contact point. (A punch and elbow with the same force would cause differing damage due to the surface area able to take the blow.)
I don't see how dividing attacks into 5 types is helpful in any way. You don't have weapon defense: vol 1-5 to look at when a weapon attack is coming, so an index page won't help you either. Also: fire-based weapons. Also, ballistic weapons can be edged or blunt.
11.)there are likely only 5 types of attacks somone can run into.
Temporary disablement will cause temporary disablement.
14.) temporary disablement of a vital system will either cause a knockout or death.
After that one, it seems like you're just collecting if/then truisms, which I don't think are very useful. Every situation is different.
