    Punching the throat and neck

    I have always heard people talk about the lethality of punching or striking the throat. I want to know what is the real chance a power punch to the throat will kill someone? I have read that in old bare knuckle boxing days the throat was a legit target and punching someone there can KO someone just like the chin. I would think if it was so lethal then someone in boxing or MMA would have been hurt seriously from a accidental throat punch.

    So what is everyone's thoughts?

    the trachea can be crushed by a punch, hence no throat/neck strikes in almost every single organization out there.

    Has there ever been a documented case of a trachea being broken/crushed by a strike?

    i tend to put those kind of claims in the same bucket as things like some old kung fu master breaking a coconut then saying "see? i could do that to a human head too"

    sounds fun but it never happens

    I'm with Alex... sounds like Boondock Saints "serial crusher" theory.... Nice for comic books and kids with pimples... but in the real world I'm thinking that accidental neck strikes are fairly common, and I have yet to hear of someone dying from it.

    I've gotten hit in the throat a few times. Hurts like hell. If you accumulate enough little shots to the throat like I have, you can actually loosen the little bone that hold the windpipe in place. That really sucks.

    I hit a guy in the throat once and he just gagged and hit me back. It really didn't seem to faze him too much.
