    Although I believe broken fingers can be fight-stopping, I do recall playing basketball once and breaking my thumb (which is worse than a finger, IMO) which, of course, did not stop me from continuing to play with a non-functioning left hand. And basketball ain't fighting....so backing up the OP...

    1) That it doesn't work
    2) That it does work"

    For ****'s sake, people have had their legs bitten off by sharks yet still manage to fight them off and swim to safety. Broken finger or toe guaranteed fight ender? GTFO!

    Meh, the ones who actually come on to post and defend themselves are like religious fanatics ranting and raving about how they hate Hitchens and Dawkins.

    I hate Dawkins too but it's only because he's always cock me blocking at parties. Dude gets more ass than a public John, it's freaking infuriating!

    Ok that whole post was good but this part was absolute gold.

    Every little bit helps I suppose. I spent a little time in the Genbukan before I looked around and found this site. My lurking here saved me from that.

    God rest Hitchens sweet soul. Except he would punch me if he were still alive. What a great man!

    I'm sure you've all heard the d34dly apologist say a variation of this: "If you only train for sport, you'll let go if your opponent taps because that's what you're conditioned to do!". But in any style about attacking sensitive areas, the response to actually hitting them is to stop and see if they're okay (because it was an accident). I wonder if they figure they'll automatically stop and apologize like they would in training.
