    Normally a good place to punch is the side of a jaw if you deliever an accurate punch there you can knock the guy out.

    Here is a question. If you can punch to the nose, why punch to the jaw?
    I know, Eastwood and Van Damme do it, but in reality, the same strength punch would do more damage on the nose, than the jaw.

    I am assuming you mean to stop someone... in a real fight... not sparring or training...
    Kick them in the floating ribs... you crack those puppies... and they are going to be in a world of pain... every breath will hurt!
    Kick on the side of the knee... that will take them down too!

    The only instructions were "not head or groin"

    Nice reading comprehension.

    So, how about throat, rib cage, stomach. There is no "best place" in my opinion. Whatever u can get to.

    Does the neck count as part of the head?

    Otherwise probably a nice kidney shot or one in the solar plexus, something to knock the wind out of them.

    Just between the pectoral and shoulder muscle, solar plexus, gut, floating ribs, kidney, outer or inner thigh.

    I like kicking on the siatic(sp) nerve that runs down the leg, or the side of the knee. Striking other places then the head would be, adam's apple, solars, lower ribs, kidneys, or lower stomach.

    If you're going to start talking Martial Arts and Mullets, I may have to lower the tone a little.

    Kick the knee from any angle at all (if you can get in from behind the knee you can drop them and they hurt their knee as they land too :cool: ) also side of the ankle does it nicely too.... :D
    Punch straight into the throat, the sternum (with extended knuckles preferably), solar plexus if they're a bit flabby (won't work if they have a six-pack, but sternum always will), floating ribs I concur on, kidneys are good too and just above the nipple on the pectorals (again with a knuckle), a correctly done backfist will break the collarbone which hurts lots but they may not be aware it's broken for quite some time so that one's only if you're being spiteful... :yeleyes:

    Tbh I think punches and kicks are fairly limited anyway. If you can elbow just about anywhere on the body is going to hurt if you do it right, it's more likely to do internal damage and/or break bones too whereas a punch tends to spread out its impact (unless you're using specialised techniques like short power or jin) also even if they block your elbow it still hurts whatever they blocked with. Elbow brings you in nice and close so any comeback is limited and you can easily lock/grapple or knee as a follow up...
    Lock, twist and crush is a good approach also to using arms as weapons.
    Kicks I only really favour closer up where they can't see it coming and if I'm that close why not use a knee? lol

    You mentioned the shins. If you are wearing shoes or boots then scrape the edge down their shin very hard. Like a side-kick, but on a sharp downwards angle. More of an angled stamp really, if that makes sense.

    Having said that, I'd be inclined to go a bit higher and kick through their knee-cap, simply because I reckon it's harder for them to dodge.

    Either one should get you crossed off their Christmas card list! :D

    No it won't. This idea is relegated to the world of training with compliant partners, where the imagination rules and you can kill someone with one reverse punch with a suitably loud KIAI! It's legal in mma and muay thai yet it doesn't happen.

    Also, to the original poster, I wouldn't recommend the shin. Kickboxers, thai boxers, san shou fighters, some karateka and MMA fighters actually kick and block with the shin.
