    Jiu-jitsu move may be lifesaver for trauma victims

    University of Washington has received a DoD grant and is testing a proof of concept that certain BJJ moves could be used to save lives by stopping bleeding.

    Per the article, "“Knee mount” maneuver reduces blood-flow velocity in major arteries, pilot test shows." Full article in link.

    I would love to see the grant application and what in it made the DoD think of funding the study.

    I would too.

    But, my first thought is that knee in the belly does not need to be put in the pack, nor put in the pack ahead of time.

    It is a back up, that is potentially always there, with training.

    I'd volunteer to knee mount paid guinea pigs for science.

    The words "Knee mount" and "save lives" don't deserve to be in the same paragraph....

    Yes, modern western medicine for the most part.
    Military trauma medic schools.
    EMT school.
    Paramedic School.
    First Aid classes.
    CPR classes.

    The problem is a lot of the old Kappo books or chapters recommend some techniques that have not always withstood the test of time very well.
