Where else was he sticking his thumb into bill?

I try to be careful not to hit the wind pipe.

Also a fainting response can be achieved by digging your thumb and index finger around both sides of the neck at the C. Synus points. Correct?
I could have beat on his legs, I guess (pointless with Jim, for sure).
Umm... Am I being set up with a question like that?
Even if you completely block the blood flow in both carotids, you can't make someone black out. The paravertebral arteries also supply the Circle of Willis in the brain, so brain blood flow is still adequate for consciousness. The "blood choke" techniques instead work by crimping the jugular veins, thereby blocking venous return from the brain. No blood out means no blood in.
No, not at all Bill, it didn't come out right…I meant to really prod you on recollecting where else on the body Bruce would strike with his 'tip of the thumb' to get a reaction.

The wonderful thing we will see, is that Jim, in addition to his three kata …mandatory for the rank…he will perform Dan Kumite, Seisan Bunkai, and sparring…with every application of Uechi becoming a Kyusho KO. It should be something spectacular.
