Similar to head and body shots in boxing. The liver is a great one to hit or kick.
Similar to the spleen, certain shots and angle of attack is/are very important.
So, yes, you are not always being specific, but there are better spots than others.
Boxing with gloves, lots of padding and ability to hide behind them, barehand much different...

I feel best locations are the eyes, neck, groin for a first quick attack.
Nerves close to surface also (healing, will teach more about nerves in one session, buy a book on anatomy) happy.gif

If you miss, then as you say your training and creativity comes into play.
Following up with an elbow, backfist is effective, must perfect, striking bags imho...
Based on what your opponent does or fails to do, is when you can react or act...
Think high low high low, knees (muay thai) very effective, Duh it is a given...

In fighting with a sharp instrument, club, etc...
You know more than not you are going to get cut, or hit, so, protecting vital locations are a must.
Not always successful, but the more you know in the art the better, to survive...

So sure training is really a must, short course of basics, say intense 6 months much better.
Those who go a couple of nights a week for 45 minutes and don't do homework for a few hours in between.
Losers imho...
Similar to going to a class of concentration to bend spoons (bs knockouts using chi, no contact) go home bend them by hand happy.gif one lie deserves another...
Unable to reproduce, or replicate, shows in science experiment, liar liar happy.gif
Need strong legs to move fast and take angles, best to keep them in great shape.
