    "Using his skills as a black belt in karate ... giving the shark a fierce poke in the eye..."
    ?!?!?! A big fish without appendages had him, so he poked the eye with a hand that was free anyway? What does karate have to do with that??

    You are absolutely right! I've had to totally re-think this thread. See, I saw Shark, Rep=BAD ASS with a BIG MOUTH, and I thought grappler. My bad. See if the shark was a grappler, he would have picked on someone in his own weight class and not gotten taken out with a tactic a 105lb gymnast could have used to win. :>)

    Just poke them in the eyes when they do, it works.

    That karate is deadly, even against other species. :karated:

    Besides, isn't this similar to what TMA's always state when they end up in a grappling situation ->

    "He always said he'd poke a shark in the eye if one ever attacked him,"

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Great whites: Semi grappling n00bs. Boa constrictor: BJJ masters.

    All eyes are sensitive, and any that are retractable or covered by lids are very sensitive.

    Also, sharks generally shy away from things that provide any significant resistance. While it's risky to try it with great whites, underwater photographers often go cageless with Makos, armed with a baton to bat sharks that approach too closely on the nose. Animal Planet tells me that shark noses are extremely touch-sensitive, and when smacked, they generally withdraw.
