The solar plexus blow is a punch to stomach which causes a lapse in breathing in the target. Although numerous characters in the series perform techniques matching this description, Hammer Nao's iteration was the first to receive this name.


Strengths & WeaknessesEdit

A blow to the stomach can upset the celiac plexus, a complex network of nerves (a plexus) located in the abdomen, causing the diaphragm to spasm and resulting in difficulty in breathing -- a sensation commonly known as "getting the wind knocked out of you". A blow to this region can also affect the celiac plexus itself, possibly interfering with the functioning of the viscera, as well as causing great pain.[1]
