A rabbit punch is a blow to the neck or to the base of the skull. It is considered especially dangerous because it can damage the cervical vertebrae and subsequently the spinal cord, which may lead to serious spinal cord injury or even death. The punch's name is derived from the use of the technique by hunters to kill rabbits with a quick, sharp strike to the back of the head.
