Single Status Update
Been a while since I've posted.
Just thought I'd drop everyone a line. I am in the Army now so I won't get to do this very often. I am currently stationed in Fort Benning, GA (for BCT - 3 more weeks but I'm on leave for Christmas)
and after that I go to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio for my AIT (I'm a 91 Whiskey or Medic) for four months.
Yeah. Well, maybe I'll post again maybe not but I wanted to wish everyone the best.
(and the account is still losered lol)

The side of the head is either the temple, or the pressure points behind the ear or under the jaw.
We didn't really do anything too fancy. The nose is one place we're taught also, but, in a combat situation it is only so effective, thus we were taught not to rely on it and to go for either a kill or aim to render an opponent unconscious.
The area under the arm pit is also good. If struck hard enough, it can cause a person to go unconscious.
When all else fails, there's the MMA stuff we were taught: rear-naked chokes, arm bars, and other things (that I forgot the names to), but they sure as hell worked, and having them demonstrated on me by my drill sergeant (not as punishment but at our training) I can assure you they are highly effective. And painful.
