    Just pick up the TKD syllabus at any McDojo.

    My favorite: grab the "pressure point" on the forearm to relieve at rear naked choke.

    From karate....

    - If someone grabs both my lapels, I stick my middle finger into the the little ident at the bottom of the throat, push up on both their elbows, and then punch the solar plexus.

    - When this kid said that even though no one really does the whole lunge punch deal that is telegraphed from a mile away, if we hit them in this right spot it's a death point and works every time, "especially on big guys."

    - Single lapel grab defense: Grab the wrist and twist it and perform small circle and they will drop to the ground. A rhino housewife was smart enough to know that doing such a technique was pointless when she poked me in the ribs with her free hand, but it pissed me off when she said, "You're leaving yourself wide open!" Lady, I don't fight like this.

    The art I left was full of pressure points, pretty much exclusively, so I got a lot of gems.

    Twin thumb jabs to the carotid arteries.

    Praying mantis hand block (with the cute little 2-finger thingy look)

    Soodo (knifehand) chop to the inside of the wrist.

    Stingy palm slap to the chest--probably some ki-powered death strike bullshido.

    Thumb-lock when you shake hands.

    In kuksool, they had juhn hwan bup: a guy grabs (just stands there, too) you. You spin really superfast and kneel on one knee. The centrifugal force is supposed to hurl the attacker (remember the guy who grabbed you and just stood there?)--which means he flips himself like in aikido and hapkido. Total BULLSHIDO.

    X block.

    I took one quarter of Karate while in College and the instructor's response to everything was x block. Punch - x block it. Kick - x block it. Someone stabbing you - stand in the path of the knife and x block it.

    This isn't posted to suggest that the Kung Fu program at that school was any better. We once watched as a Assistant tried to show a lock escape. He picked the biggest guy in the class, only to discover he couldn't get out of the lock. We watched in horror and laughter as he clearly whispered to the guy "loosen your grip so I can demonstrate this ok?"

    Telephone is fine. Why not put the counter-strike into his face?

    hammer fist to the top of the skull. This was supposed to either knock the guy clean or break the vertabrea in his neck.
    Ironically, in the 8th grade some kids were fighting and one tried this move by accident and broke the radius in his arm. had a cast for a good six months.

    He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.

    - X-block to stop groin kick and overhand knife attacks.

    - Upward palm strike to face from horse stance to stop takedown attempts.

    - Reverse punch to leg to "break" femur bone (must do it at 45 degree angle for best chance of working..yeah).

    Plenty more I'm sure...
