Its worth talking to someone who has some direct combat experience
(tho an ER tech would do as well).  To take the classic example, it is
damned difficult to hit someone on the back of the head with
<whatever> and knock them unconcious without killing them.  The line
between KO and DOA for head blows is extremely vague, fuzzy, and
treacherous.
