Mostly, I just sit here. Mostly.

I didn't through the whole thing, Stoid, did someone say it was a pinky kill?
Cause that'd be funny.
I don't hit people in the throat when I train, I like living friends and training partners ^_^ Everyone I've ever trained with is likely to say the same thing, and that's a lot of people.

"As easy to crush as a plastic dixie cup."

Ah, well, I don't know, sometimes I have difficulty guaging my own strength, one minute I can't lift a box of crackers, the next I'm pushing old ladies down hills, then the next momment I'm killing people with feathers- wait a second! None of that requries strength! AGH >_<
Whatever, ok, yeah, someone said that, but you can't crush a plastic dixie cup with just your pinky (watch someone make a webcam video), so nyah.

I just did! Actually it was a plastic Jack Frost party cup, the only dixie cups I have are the miniature cardboard ones.

...Ouch. I just stabbed my pinky into my throat lightly as a test. That fucking hurts. It pushed the adams apple out of the way and poked into the bone behind it.

Guys...lets all be realistic for a moment. NONE of you have EVER killed ANYONE with a throat strike and you never will. You'll NEVER know if you can kill someone with a throat strike. In Kyokushin which is bare knuckle people are accidentally hit in the throat ALL THE TIME full power and they dont even need a break in the action.
For years we've had people tell us that if you're hit in the nuts you'll drop like a rock or die. If you're hit in the temple you'll drop like a rock and DEFINITELY die. If you get hit here, there and everywhere execpt fantasyland.
You're arguing a point that you can never prove.
I'm sure a strike to NUMEROUS places can theoretically kill someone. Getting picked up and dropped on your head can kill you to. Doesnt happen all that often because there are too many factors involved to make it so simple.
The throat is no better a target than anywhere else on the head.

Reverse punch Kiaii!!!

Anyone ever watch Muay Thai from Thailand where those guys take full out shins to the front of the throat?
Posted On:12/07/2003 12:53pm
Yeah, never seen 'em do that, I thought MT guys were smarter than that, everyone knows kicking above the waist is just stupid, sin't it?
Look, As a kid I know I had my throat hit twice, both times it dropped me, and I was not the weakest munchkin on the field, thank you very much. As for you guys getting hit in the throat "all the time", I've taken a lot of shots on the side and back of the neck are you sure thats not what you mean (of course you're sure).
Besides, what's that procedure for bypassing (or is it reinflating) the trachea to get oxygen into the lungs when the things been crushed? Tracheotomy?
I'm sorry but unless you're willing to go find some guy you don't know, and video tape it as he rams the ridge of his hand nice and hard against your adam's apple to clearly demonstrate that you can "shrug it off" (which isn't necessarily gonna prove anything, those combat-ki wackos keep managin to put on a good show, had to put up with them on some Japanese talk show the other day), I'm still gonna protect my neck and have the common courtesy not to smash anyone else's.
