Rabbit Punch

The rabbit punch is a dangerous technique banned by almost all martial arts tournaments and schools. The rabbit punch is a punch to the back of the head, near the neck. It is very dangerous because the rabbit punch can damage the spine cord and/or cause the brain to detach from the brain stem. This punch should not be practiced because it can potentially severely injure a training partner.

The name rabbit punch comes from an old-fashioned method that was used by trappers to kill a rabbit without ruining the rabbit's fur (and thus keep the fur in better condition for sale). They used a club to strike the back of the rabbit's neck in order to sever its spinal cord.

For information on other punches and hand strikes (i.e. spinning back fist), please visit the main Punches sections.
