Why is a head but such an effective move in movies? Wouldn’t it hurt both peoples heads equally?

In: 2

A properly executed headbutt uses the thickest, hardest part of the skull to hit the soft tissue of the nose and mouth. If a person headbutts another person directly in the forehead, yeah, it’ll hurt both people, but a well executed headbutt strikes the mouth or nose, which are much more susceptible to trauma.

When done correctly the person doing the headbutt uses the right part of their dome to smash it into someone’s face. Yes it still hurts their head but it will annihilate someone’s face, nose, cheekbones, temple, somewhere much more sensitive to damage like that and hurt much much worse.

Well, it’s effective in movies because it *looks dramatic and entertaining*. If you want your bad guy to seem really tough, have him hit people with his *head* instead of his fists! If you want to show how determined your hero is, have him escape from a bear-hug by head-butting his enemy!

Like a lot of fighting in movies, what *looks entertaining to an audience* is very rarely what’s actually effective in a real-world fight.

The Glasgow Kiss.

You use the top or crown of your head to smash someone’s nose and mouth area in.

It may hurt you, the one doing the nutting, but no were as much as the one on the receiving end.

Fist punch to a fist hurt two people.

Fist punch to a nose hurt one person a LOT!

Head to head…two people hurt.

Head to nose…one person hurts…a LOT!
