Bit of a strange request but one in which I have really struggled to find any solid research on. Mr Abernethy frequently talks of the three ways a conflict may be ended in his book bunkai-jutsu (if you haven't read it I must strongly recommend it, nothing short of pure excellence).
These three techniques are gouging the eye, siezing the throat and crushing the groin. These are three techniques almost impossible to train for and thus altercations need to be made. Now, are these fight enders or simply techniques which give time to escape? The human body is so durable that I thought that in extreme cases it can plough on unless unconscious. Two cases in point, the attacks to the eyes and the groin. Are gouging and crushing these two areas more designed to take away vision and/or produce intense pain thus allowing for the option to flee?
Secondly, in regards to siezing the trachea, how may this be trained? What I mean by this is it is trraight forward to train say a rear naked choke. The choke is applied and the partner taps when it is on. The user gains confidence in the technique as their training partner can testify that it was effective and the application of the technique is safely practiced with many repetitions. How may the same be done with the trachea grab in order to gain repetitive training and confidence that the technique works? I though I had a solid understanding for how chok and strangles worked through training in judo. However, the two most common attacks in relation to a strangle are not allowed in judo practise, these being the two handed grab of the neck/throat area and the general one handed grabbing of the neck/throat area. Are these thuggish teqniques just as dangerous?
Any and all input would be greatly appreciated. Have been struggling with these aspects for a while and it has proven incredibly difficult to be able to build confidence with the technique. For example, if you were to become entangled with an opponent whom draws a weapon, would crushing the trachea really work as quickly and effectively as needed? Does it need to be held on like a more "traditional" choke or is it simple seized, crushed and released?
Again, thanks in advance for any and all help.
