Two Finger Slap To The Throat

This is best used as a stunning and non-maming pre-emptive strike used when you feel that a fight might be immanent (section of other like strikes coming soon). This is used as a stunning distraction before a fight actually starts, giving you the time to get away or deal with other nearby possible assailants.


  • Very simply the first two fingers are extended
  • The thumb locks the ring and pinky finger
  • The arm is then flung at a mostly horizontal angle striking across the throat fairly hardly

The prospective aggressor will be shocked by the pain, gasping for breath but be perfectly fine after 5-10 minutes. This gives you enough time, about a minute till they regain composure with lingering pain, to deal with the situation ie. (get away or deal with another nearby possible aggressor).

For more strikes to this target please see the throat page
