Ah, I missed this fight. That right there is the handy shoulder strike. It's an old martial arts move that isn't taught a lot in thee states, because it can really mess a person up as shown in that fight, and you could end up with a broken clavicle if done improperly.
I know it's taught by some in Ninpo, but I've seen it used occasionally in TKD, JKD, BJJ, and rarely in BKJ. It can be hard to pull off if someones got a good hold on you, but if you can break the hold enough to ram your shoulder up into their face it can usually lead to a bit more freedom.
Musashi once said something along the lines of "Strike your enemy with your shoulder. Strike them until they are dead."
It can also be used to create distance for a follow up strike. As in shoulder ramming an enemy and then following that up with a blade.
