And when the ****'s been punched out of you, you might just find that you're far better-off without it." - Vieux Normand

"Eventually, I realized it doesn't matter what art you train, what matters is the method in which you train. Training in an alive manner, under skilled and qualified instruction, is the single most important aspect of gaining martial skill. All else is window dressing." - JNP : Saying it how it is!

No **** there are a million ways to hurt someone badly. That is not using control, that's not why I practice MA. There are far better, easier ways to win than pulling that nonsense. And Yuki, of course, still won with one dead eye.
Real life or death, you're still fighting with one eye or else it ends up zero. Even with zero you might have a fighting chance with Judo or BJJ.

A buddy of mine trained in a little Judo and alot of Muay Thai. About 10 years ago he got into a fight at a club. They ended up on the ground in the middle of the dance floor. I saw the bouncers heading that way. My super drunk ass decided to break up the fight before the bouncers had their way. Since it was dark and I was drunk I couldn't tell who was who on the ground. Naturally I assumed my budy was the guy on top. I tried to pull them apart, but neither would let the other go. Since I assumed my buddy was on top I decided to attack the guy on the bottom. I put my hands on his face and stuck my thumbs into his eyes. It had to hurt like hell and it felt like his eyes were about to pop. Next thing I know I saw him let go his arms and legs went straight out. Apparently I was wrong, my buddy was on the bottom.
Afterwords my buddy and I continued drinking. He told me, "That mother fucker tried to gouge my eyes out!" LOL, so I replied "That's bullshit! I can't believe that ***** would do that!"
Ten years later I finally told my budy that it was me. T3h D34dly works, you definately have to have position first. LOL

I'm adding Komedy Komprehension Kollapse to my list of possible industrial project names. Might come in handy if I manage to find enough old washing machines and broken bottles to put together an einsturzende neubauten cover band.
Getting eye gouged sucks, but there are always worse places for fingers to go. Speaking of, turkish oil wrestling. Go do it.

Sweaty boxing glove to the eye hurts too. I can't count the times...usually self inflicted, trying to wipe my face.

We wear safety goggles in my class for every drill. And pretty much every class, I'll hear that click of a stick or daga against the goggles and someone will say "gotta love eye-protection".
It astounds me that some sort of eye protection isn't common in FMA.
