How To Knock Someone Out


Delivering a knockout blow does not actually require much power. The punch just has to be properly placed. Of course, the power required varies between individuals. Boxing commentators often speak of how good a chin a boxer has, which refers to his ability to withstand what could be a knockout punch.

Your brain floats inside the skull, cushioned by liquid which prevents your brain from hitting your skull in the course of most activities. When you are hit in the head while boxing, you suffer a cerebral concussion when the liquid cushion does not stop your brain from colliding with your skull. Each time this happens, there is some brain damage. Repeated blows to the head will make you punch drunk.























How To Knockout Happens


While the impact contributes to a knockout, it is generally agreed that mostly the cause is trauma to the brain stem, resulting from punches which make you twist your head dramatically. This also causes your brain to hit your skull. The recipe for a knockout is a combination of the two.

Administering a knockout blow is a matter of several
self-defense techniques. The first is accuracy. It is possible to punch somebody repeatedly in the face and still leave them standing because the punches were not to the right place. Being punched on the nose, forehead or eye hurts like a bitch but does not usually inflict enough damage to cause the brain to shut off.







How To Knock Someone Out With One Punch


You want to cause your opponent to turn his head violently. This twist will occur considerably more naturally if your punch hits your opponent's chin or temple, rather than the cheek or further back. Do you spin a wheel from the center or from the edge?

A knockout is less the result of bulging muscles and more that of how fast your arms accelerate.
Mass matters, but not as much as speed. This is what practice should center upon. If a boxer becomes dehydrated in later rounds, the thin cushion around the brain becomes yet thinner, and punches will cause more damage. So you should stay hydrated.







How To Knock Someone Out Training


To make it more probable that your punch will be a knockout, you should
work on your core. Strong obliques and abs will allow you to twist your body with more force. More pivot results in more power. Roman twists, side bends, hanging leg raises, crunches, and oblique crunches will improve this aspect of your fighting.

To develop accuracy, you should mark a punchbag at around chin and temple height, and aim to hit those spots bang on from different angles.

Additional strength generally equates to additional speed and mass. If you train for strength, you should include body-weight exercises in the mix, to give you complete control over your body and the ability to explosively move the muscles which matter.








How To Knock Someone Out With A Headbutt


Usually, when a boxer falls limp to the mat, it follows a shot to the head, but knockouts do not necessarily follow punches: a blow to the liver can do the trick just as well. Various choke holds such as a pec choke block the windpipe and cut off your opponent's oxygen supply. Or you could resort to a headbutt - the 'Glasgow kiss'.


Smashing the crown of your head into you enemy's face drives a conveniently located thing into your opponent's most vulnerable body part. Grabbing your opponent's neck in preparation exposes you, and he will know what is coming as soon as you do so. Instead, you should grab his shirt.

To avoid having your opponent land a knockout on you, you should keep your hands up to protect your head.

Knowing what causes a knockout, how to hit in that way, what other alternatives exist, and how to protect yourself are key to success in a
street fight. This is how to win a fight.
