The Eye Gouge Head allows you to become familiar with the human head and the location of the eyes relative to the other facial or structural features of the skull. Practicing on this “replica head” enables you to become confident and competent in the bio-mechanics of attacking from various angles (whether from behind, in-front, beside, above or below the eye sockets). The natural angles and anchor points of the Eye Gouge Head are very similar to a real human head which allows you to gain knowledge about ranges as well as learning both the advantages and disadvantages from a 360 degree practice platform. We recommend to have the training eyes out for some of the drills so that you can see the actual interior structure of the tapered eye socket and practice penetrating into the depth of the orbit. The principle action of pressure/counter pressure does NOT have to be made with your other hand. It can be anything (wall, ground, interior of vehicle, tree etc.) that prevents the attacker from “moving out” of the technique.
After less than an hours practice, students became “comfortable” with simulating an eye “gouge”. They “finally had a chance to practice what was only a concept target before”.
The Eye Gouge Head is light weight and is able to be taken anywhere and practiced in private if preferred. It does not require any special set up functions.
