One of these secret spots is right along the side of the neck (on either the left or right side).
In this area, there are several pressure points that when slapped in the right way (it's really not hard), overloads the brain's circuitry and causes an instant knockout to your opponent.
But in order to pull this off, you must bring power up from your lower body.
It's not about "bodyweight"... it's about what my friend Russell calls "waveform".
You see, this knockout move starts with your hip on the same side you're slapping from.
Again, it's not difficult - if you know it - and the move itself will be invisible to the person you're defending against so they'll never even know what hit them (until they wake up later and you're long gone).

I might have seen Evan's application during his many seminars I attended but I don't recall exactly as he produced a number of KOs using Uechi techniques.
Can you describe it in detail?
in a grappling situation one can calmly reach forward from your right to their right (or your left to their left), find the collar bone with the palm/fingers, and then start digging in and attempting to press one or more nerves within the plexus against the back of the collar bone. The natural reaction of the body is to tilt the head and jaw towards the owie.

This particular application would suggest a deep plunge of the fingers behind the collar bone.

What do you make of it?
