One character punches another in the throat in order to silence them.
In order to silence someone, a Combat Pragmatist may strike against the throat, either aiming for the Adam's apple or the trachea (windpipe). This is usually very effective. It may even kill the one being hit. Real Life, this can be fatal, and it's very painful and uncomfortable even when it's not fatal. See also: Choke Holds.
