I don't really want to get to technical but the strike looks more like a hammerfist to me than a backfist, if you pause it you can see the his forearm muscle is still lateral with the ground so I think he probably hammerfisted him in the area right behind the jaw bone which Merlock should know is an easy knock out point. Second, the pimp was acting in a threatening manner so Lee was justified in acting preemptively to prevent his own injury. Last but not least, that whole registering your hands as weapons is an old fable. I have been a black belt for more than 3 years and never been required to register, nor have any of the blackbelts or masters I have trained with. Having said all that forget mechanics that was SWEET!!!!
