It's not like a strike to the back of the neck is some super move that is going to win the fight more than once in a blue moon, and it was only outlawed within the last decade or so, there were plenty of MMA/Vale Tudo/NHB matches where it was legal.
So what are you saying? I was saying that in karate, at least i did learn some takedown defence. but to be highly effective at it it must be practiced. the best takedown defense is awareness.
