WARNING: You should never use what I teach unless you’re in a life or death situation! If you had a gun, would you pull the trigger? Actually, don’t ever use what I teach…you will kill someone!
In this episode of “Ask Coach David” I show a vagus nerve strike using my hands & forearm as the tool.
What is the Vagus Nerve? ”The vagus nerve is a cranial nerve that also affects heart rate and blood pressure. When the Vagus nerve is struck it creates avaso-vagal reaction causing an immediate change in the central nervous system and a person will immediately have syncope which is a fancy word for passing out.”
You can use this strike from any direction. Try not to get bogged down thinking of a technique, just smash the vagus nerve (side of neck), through a tool (forearm, hammer fist, edge of hand) with enough force to cause a somatic reflex or for them to end up unconscious, incapacitated or dead.
Remember, you would only use my system if you had no other choice to survive the encounter/attack. My system is violence! You will need to be more violent than your attacker. Your attacker is not going to try and “fight” you, they are trying to kill you. Are you going to let that happen?
As I always say “When you’re in a fight for your life, you had better know how to win!” Coach David Alexander
