Percussion or pressure on the carotid, yes? I'll look up some articles on injuries in martial arts and see what I can find.

But apparently you are pretty relaxed about spelling.Optional signature you may use to appear at bottom of your signatures.

Carotid artery occlusion following a karate punch to the neck.
Blumenthal DT, Riggs JE, Ortiz O.
Department of Neurology, West Virginia University School of Medicine, Morgantown 26506-9180, USA.
A 43-year-old corrections officer developed right neck and posterior head pain following a karate punch to the right side of the neck during self-defense training. One week later, he developed an acute left hemiparesis. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a right hemisphere cerebral infarction and absence of signal flow void in the right internal carotid artery. Carotid ultrasound demonstrated complete occlusion of the right internal carotid artery without evidence of atherosclerotic disease. Carotid occlusion with cerebrovascular infarction is a possible complication of martial arts training involving forceful blows to the neck.

purist,And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

Traumatic internal carotid artery dissection associated with taekwondo
A 43-year-old right-handed man experienced sudden onset of right hemisensory loss and Wernicke’s aphasia. Two months before presentation, he obtained a black-belt degree in taekwondo and started training more frequently and aggressively. He never smoked and had no personal or family history of arterial dissection, connective tissue disease, or migraine.
Seven days before admission, he noted left hemicrania immediately after a taekwondo class. On the following day, he had transient symptoms of left monocular blindness and right-sided numbness. He was started on aspirin and stopped training because of headaches. He resumed classes on the day of admission and while training experienced left monocular vision loss. This was followed by aphasia, right hemiparesis, and sensory loss.
