Thats why krav maga/MCMAP seems effective, it cuts out the bull**** and is pretty much some judo/BJJ throws and chokes combined with eye gouges and the like.
Proper eye gouges I mean, that eye jab in JKD is ****ing stupid. I mean just look at this...
and although it's not the eye jab ****, if you want a good laugh...
That third one is pure gold
Forget all that ****. I just like the concept of poking someone in the eye. Without even watching those vids, I'm assuming they are showing variations of the finger jab. I've always thought that was a way to jam your finger on your opponent's face when you miss. You don't have to load up when you poke someone in the eye.
