    Excellent awareness lesson. It takes only 3 lbs of pressure per square inch to dislodge the knee cap front striking to the side. Because of that, I would have never thought of using my knee to strike a knee, in what you showed was a perfect attack position. Is this a secret knockout punch? Of course not. But even "on the street," you dislodge somebody's knees, gravity can't be denied. And I wouldn't have thought of it without your excellent teaching. Much appreciated.

    Always amazes me how utterly week these techniques are . This simply has no chance in the street with a person angered and intent on your destruction. Try it , put it under stress and you will get choked out. Do you wear shoes . Of course, then they should be used as a weapon.
