"The Lady put up quite a struggle, youngster... a nerve pinch was necessary to quiet her."
―Skorr to Luke Skywalker, having used a nerve pinch on Leia Organa[src]

A nerve pinch was an unarmed combat technique whose purpose was to render opponents unconscious. The bounty hunter, Skorr used it successfully on Leia Organa in 0 ABY on Ord Mantell. During the Gorog assassination attempt on Tenel Ka and her daughter Allana, Jacen Solo also used a nerve pinch to subdue a panicked Ben Skywalker.
