    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    One friend of mine kicked another friend with the shin to the side of the neck, it wasn't even full force. The guy didn't go down, but took quite a hit

    - loss of memory (going back to what he did the evening before
    - concussion
    - could function properly at work for a few months.


    So it all depends on the situation I guess.

    A friend of mine got KOed at a smoker with a strike to the neck similar to that... it works, but I've only seen/heard about it on that one occasion.

    So the consensus is that it works some of the time but targeting/application vs a resisting opponent is a bitch?

    An interesting note, the Dog Brothers Die Less Often material talks about applying an "angular brachial stun" as part of the Dog Catcher defense.

    It seems that if your guard is up, chin down it won't be easy to stimulate you nerves there. If your guard is up and shoulders too, the trapeze muscle is tens and a bit elevated, it might be enough to prevent that.
    You can try it on yourself (don't worry you are not going to knock yourself out :) )
    When your muscle is relaxed and shoulder is down, you can achieve this jerking movement/reflex from your trapeze muscle, but it won't happen when you just hold your guard up and shoulder slightly elevated.

    I've tried hard with the neck and shoulder relaxed, hitting with the opposite hand, here in myself and no KO. But I can see that if it was a good hit it would work. It seems to shake the head.

    I think it is a reflex thing like the knee jerk etc. It doesn't really involve sensory nerves or what have you, just the muscle spindle.
    Basically if your muscle is overstretched it has a mechanism that contracts it before there is damage. Why does this KO a guy? i don't know. For this KO effect you need more, either pain or some shock to a big bundle of nerves that can create an overflow of information and a shot down.
    Another possibility is a quick stoppage of blood to the brain in one side (because of the blow) that might cause u to faint.

    Christ...more questions and theories, and Vladimir Putin already answered.

    Go read Coach Josh's thread and stop mentally jerking off and trying to KO yourselves.

    One of you is going to fracture vertebrae. I'll wait for your posts.

    This Jeopardy question is also relevant to this thread.

    I think I hear Alex chuckling.
