Hello folks,I was having a chat through a friend at job-related this having lunch time who did martial arts once he to be at school. He was informed by his instructor (5th Dan, Karate) the if girlfriend smacked somebody hard sufficient in the nose you deserve to send their nose appropriate through your brain, thus instantly killing them. I debated this as as soon as I was functioning on striking clues in mine jujutsu class I remembered the my instructor made a suggest of dimissing this "killer strike" together a myth. He said that that is cartilage and also as such would just be very painful but would no be strong enough to pierce the brain. Obviously at this stage it is simply my instructor"s word over his. So ns am throwing the concern out to the experts!I understand that if friend hit anyone in the head hard sufficient they might die anyway but I am especially referring to the idea behind this to win of the nose piercing the brain.Here is Bruce Willis in the "Last boy Scout" performing the strike (1.47mins in)http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=XvIVe28-T_0So an excellent people.........Is this a martial art myth or not?

I"ve to be told by medical professional friends that it"s a myth. What wake up is that you fracture someone"s nose and also the cartilage and/or give them a serious concussion.

I chose not come argue over this one v a doctor I know. Probably he"s right and it is true, yet I to be buying the story the it is physically impossible.

Noleramas correct, it"s cartilege and won"t pierce the brain. Look at skulls there"s never a "nose" on them. You"ll break your nose and also make them quite annoyed!

If someone hit me with, say, one upward, open palm and also it shattered mine nose and also face, ns would certainly be severely demoralized. Yet then again, I"d carry out the Tyler Durden thing and shot to take mount on mine opponent and bleed a many on that human being while screaming "You don"t understand where i"ve been!!" and also laughing hysterically. However that"s simply me.

I have actually asked a couple of doctors your opinion on it, and also they all said emphatically the it was a myth. at the same time I have actually never seen a report, news story, or anything that has displayed that anyone was killed by this. In concept if girlfriend smash a persons challenge hard enough and also break the really bone in a method that shatters it and also pushes it into the mind it is possible, however not like they show in the movie in my opinion.Hard to say other is impossible, together it just takes when to prove girlfriend wrong. Improbably is a definite possibly though LOL
