    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Karate chop to the side of the neck

    Does anyone else see this as a legit strike? I am talking about swift ridgehand to the back of the base of the neck.


    me and my friend were goofing around and he nailed me with one of these. It friggin stunned me bad.

    Pop yourself in the base of the skull. The part where the back of your neck meets your thick head.

    Pop harder.

    Pop harder - your parents may not have to pay for college.

    It hurts. Duh. And it's legal in MMA.

    No - it doesn't hurt at the time. If done properly, you wake up with a hell of a headache.

    And no - it's not legal in MMA. Why to you thing the refs call no hitting to the back of the head?

    chaosexmachine - punch yourself 10 time to the base of the skull for posting on something you know nothing about.

    Ok to give you an honest answer, rather than a smart ass one. I tend to look at any one coming at me as a trained combatant; in this I would most likely never use a "chop" on them.

    As a note: the Ridge hand is a strike done with the muscle behind the thumb on the radial side of the arm/hand.
    The chop is done with the outside (Pinky) of the hand. It is also known as a knife hand strike in some styles.

    I am not a fan of it. In the above video the person striking the pimp is a police unarmed combat trainer. The attack took place outside of a class/seminar he was doing for local law enforcement. The pimp was an untrained and angered attacker. I would not advise trying this against a trained and weary combatant. Which is what a MMA, fighter would be.

    As far as rules go, another poster already said it, no striking to the back of the head.

    I've heard one anecdote of a person from my karate days succesfully ridgehanding someone in the neck.... In this case, it was against a girl who had too much to drink and was brandishing a kitchen knife towards the kareteka's brother. Apparently, she collapsed immediately.
    I don't really see how you could successfully whack someone in the neck if their chin was tucked. It seems to be mostly a sucker punch kind of thing.
