As for gouging out the eyeballs , I call BS , I'm sure it's possible , but it isn't really likely.
I've shared the story before about how a student of Laird's trained with an excellent RBSD instructor , and learnt excellent things , but also grew the belief that eye gouging/strikes were a fight ender , and while I don't recommend it I finally talked him into testing it and offered up my eye to gouge (having been gouged before and being confident of the result) . While he gouged I sat there and explained calmly what my attacking options where , sure my eye hurt , and it was a little red for a while (but not severely) but he got my point , what I did insist on though was he could not try and scratch it .
According to Lee Morrison the eyeball is surrounded by a sphincter !!!! , I'm sure we all know what that is ..... whether medically accurate the results the same it contracts and protects the eye extremely well to a gouge , its going to take a serious effort and ability to pluck it out.
I go for the chin jaw handle and the eye sockets to spin the ball. If I miss I end up at your target and just keep trying!On a side note if I'm grabbing the head I usually grab the ears with the fingers and the thumb goes to the cheekbones rather than the eyes, better grip and better response IMHO.
Marcus I'm going to have to go to the bar I have no meat puppets these days...ears and cheek bones...are you saying rotate pinkies down thumbs up under the cheeks and rotate to lock....I'm intrigued I miss experimentation
I don't think the eyes are fight stoppers , but they are sure horrible to get hit .
I don't think that you could kill anyone with an eye jab,
