The legendary fighter Jim West started this episode with a simple shoulder grab, then escalated it to a strike to the hypoglossal nerve—taking the threat to the ground. Once an enemy combatant is on the ground, Jim says this is the time to “put them out of business.”

great stuff. very informative, i tend to avoid any trouble but watching these videos help me know what to do in situations. i hope i can remember to do this if i ever get into something. thank you jim west, jack and the 3rd man (sorry, i didnt get his name) for these videos
Love these videos. This is really great information. I can't watch them enough. I would like to see how that works as a female when your opponent is taller and larger. If your opponent is larger and you hit that nerve, could they potentially fall into you and knock you to the ground as well? Example, if my opponent is 6'3" 230 lbs and I am 5'7" 120 lbs, if he falls into me with dead weight, he could knock me over just with his dead weight. Just thinking out loud if things are moving quickly, could that be a potential unplanned consequence of that move?
Every time I see Jim West grapple I am stunned by his fluid speed. Serious awesome
Good stuff. I like his idea of finishing the fight to put them out of it so you can fight his friends without him coming back at you. That is good street fighting.
