Yeh - can be lots of long term psychological and other problems with head injuries that aren't initially apparent - this is why demonstration knock-outs should not be done on the head.

I've knocked someone out by doing a ukemi into their kidney area whilst they were kneeling down. It wasn't hard at all and they just fell forwards like a sack of spuds. Managed to revive them OK.
