How Much Damage can be done with a Blow to Back of Head/Neck on the Streets ?

All combat sports are very strict with blows to the back of the head and neck. You only have to see what happens when there's an accidental strike to this area to know how lethal things could be (e.g. that TUF 5 fight with Lauzon and Miller).

So what are we talking about ? Can you kill someone easily with a blow to back of neck ? Paralysis ? or just disorientation ?

Would you strike to this area in a street fight ?

I wouldn't say easily. The human body is pretty tough!

The Occipital Lobe

This lobe sits at the back of the brain and receives the images transmitted to it from the optic tracts. A blow to the occipital lobe (back of the head) may result in an inability to make sense of what you see (visual agnosia) in your environment or read in a book or newspaper. The worst result would be "cortical blindness", an inability to see anything secondary to impaired interpretation of what is seen. This condition may be permanent or transient.

Rabbit Punch. A rabbit punch is a punch to the back of the head at the base of the skull, or to the neck at the base of the skull. It is dangerous since it may damage the cervical vertebrae and subsequently the spinal cord, which may lead to serious paralysis or death. The punch's name is derived from the name of the technique used by hunters to kill rabbits with a quick, sharp strike to the back of the head.

Lightly punch your self in the back of the head, very lightly. For maybe half a second, my vision gets slightly blurred, so imagine if some one did it to you a few times real hard.

At the very least diorientation, at it s worse, paralysis and even death.

As far as using it on the streets, that would just depend on escalation of force.

Fedor got knocked in the back of the head a couple of times getting off the floor and still won his fights.
