In my story, my character is an archer and she ends up in a situation where her bow is broken by the bad guy, she's knocked to the ground and the guy is about to get the macguffin she's been protecting. So I planned on having her, in desperation, sneak behind him and strangle him with her bowstring. Is that even possible though? Or is the string not strong enough to do any significant damage like that. She's using a Japanese style Yumi bow if that helps at all. Thanks in advance.
