Are Pressure Point Knockouts real? If they are then how do Pressure Point Knockouts work? I am asked this question often. Therefore today I am going to give you 3 Pressure Point Knockout Combinations that you can begin to use right away!
*Warning - please always train doing pressure point knockouts with proper instruction*
The first thing I want to clarify with this post is that these knockouts will work. However depending on your root art and style of movement you may or may not be able to incorporate these.
They also tend to be "static" which is part of the learning experience. How you get to these 3 Pressure Point Knockout Combinations will be up to you. But I will give you the basics.
First I need to note that all attacks are based on ONLY 3 possibilities. 3 different ways someone can attack you. Today I will give an example from one of each.
The 3 methods of attack are:
The first and most basic of attacks is from a push. In my Humane Pressure Point Tactics Courses I teach how you can absorb these pushes and trap the hand coming forward. This allows for a fast and easy setup by trapping the hand to part of your body, lets say KD-27 for the purpose of this article.
With some training you can then trap using your HT-8 point in alignment with their TW-3. If they are touching Kidney in this case noted you have Water and Fire together in the cycle of destruction. Thus beginning your setup.
If the push is against your left shoulder you would absorb and then return to position turning them away from you. This would expose GB-31 for a knee tap. Also exposing ST-5 for your right hand and a strike from back to front. Plus this gives you all 5 elements in the cycle of destruction and if ST-5 is hit well and deep knockout.
Unfortunately a video demonstrating this has been deleted by YouTube. Anytime I speak of "self defense" on YouTube and demonstrate a knockout they consider this offensive and a violation of policy. I wish I was kidding. But your RIGHT to Self Defense is under attack by these politically correct clowns.
For this one I am going to show you an old video. This was the first video I ever did of a pressure point knockout. I will break it down below.
In this video I am tapping TW-23 for knockout. TW-23 can be a dangerous pressure point as it protects the ocular bone and a hard strike therefore can damage the bone and the eye. However a light tap is OK. This knockout comes from a combination of below.
Next we look at the punch. Below is another video for you to enjoy. I will break it down afterwards.
In this knockout I am using a fire stance, and attacking all the Yin meridians on the arm. And this gives me a lot of fire and metal. Here is a breakdown of points and other elements.
Here we are using a short cycle of destruction which are water, fire and metal. The water element comes when I step into the fire stance. Any time you break ground with Kidney 1 you create water.
One of the things you need to understand about Pressure Point Knockout Combinations and being success is how the different pressure points work! Without this understanding it is very difficult to get good at this part of the art. And especially to apply it on the streets!

When people think of the word "knockout" they tend to think only of concussive events. However there are 3 Types of Kyusho Knockouts, and I am saying 3 types because you may be very surprised as to why. There is for some reason much controversy when it comes to pressure point, Kyusho Jitsu Neurological Knockouts. However when you take a look at the facts you will see very plainly how they work!
Therefore lets take a moment break them down.
The first on the list is the concussion. Concussions are caused by blunt trauma to the head resulting in bruising or damage to one or more areas of the brain. This happens as the brain collides with the inside of the skull.
A concussion can be caused by heavy impact to the skull such as a martial arts strike, a fall, car accident, etc. However trauma does not always cause unconsciousness, but when it does it is a neurological event. Therefore these are very dangerous and can result in death.
Next on the list is the neurological knockout. A neurological knockout is caused by a short circuit, overload, or imbalance in the central nervous system. [involving both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.
Therefore this can be done using Kyusho Jitsu techniques.
And these may also be caused by extreme stress, emotions, shock, or extreme trauma to any area of the body. [A broken bone or crushed limb for example]. Neurological knockouts also occur due to excessive use of drugs or alcohol. What is often called "fainting" is also a purely neurological event. As an example someone may faint at the sight of a needle. Since some do not believe that pressure point knockouts are real does this mean the person fainting is not real also?
Then we have cardio/respiratory. This type of knockout is caused by limiting the oxygen supply to the brain. Therefore this can be caused by choking or strangulation involving the air supply, the flow of blood or both. These can also be caused by impact to veins or arteries. Which cause a disruption in the flow of blood, possibly dislodging plaque from the arterial walls causing clots.
This is part of the Dim Mak systems of training.
This now bring me to the point, since all knockouts, not matter what the cause are neurological then why would you not be training in this science?
There are many martial artists out there who believe in the idea of "punch or kick him hard in the head." There are so many issues with this one I cannot list them all! First the kind of power these people are talking about comes from anger. When you are angry you lose control of your motor skills. In fact anger and fear have the same result on your ability to fight back!
You can miss very easy!
Plus you have no specific target in mind. Going for "impact" or in other words a concussion may not yield the results you are looking for! It takes time for the brain to swell and cause the "neurological" event of unconsciousness or a knockout. I have had many concussions in my life and ONLY ONE caused me to lose consciousness and that was the first one.
So rather than focus on that one time power hit why would you not strike at the "occipital nerve" located at GB-20, or the "vagus nerve" branch at ST-05? These strikes, done correctly WILL cause Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts.
Plus you are less likely to have "legal" issues as a result of your "fight" or "self defense" due to excess force or "overkill."
The answer is NO they are not. But you have to do the study! This involves learning how these nerves work, how to properly activate them and then tying this back to your root art or self defense system.
This type of knockout is someone anyone can do! But you do need to spend some time developing the skills!
I have many different eBooks and videos to help you. But you must overcome the inertia of human nature and do the work. I know that many of the "Understanding Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts" eBooks people have purchased have not been read! Human nature is to be lazy! This is why so many FAIL in life.
Right now I have something fantastic to offer you! Take a look at our all new "done for you" pressure point knockout video course. This is a 5 video set with exact instructions on how to perform various types of Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts. I even teach the LEG knockouts like in the video above! Follow the link below and read all about it!

People love Kyusho Knockouts! And I don't blame them! Not only are they fun to perform and to learn. But mapping out the body to find new and better methods is a great challenge for the mind! Now, the neurological knockouts of Kyusho Jitsu can be used very successfully on the street. But not in the same way you would for a demonstration. But I think that is obvious. It just gets down to learning, training and application.
Some knockouts are simple. There are places on the human body that if you strike hard enough, in the correct way will cause a neurological pressure point knockout quickly. But like anything else you have to train to do this. You cannot leave it to chance! What does this mean? The better you understand how it all works, the better you will do in real life when it counts!
Here is a video for a more advanced Kyusho Jitsu Knockout. Do you understand "why" it worked?
At the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance we have worked very hard to get you the best possible Kyusho Jitsu education possible! But YOU are the one who must take the steps and learn. Here is another place I have take down the barriers to learning.
If you want to go deeper into Kyusho Knockouts I have something for you! Below is a link to my 10 Video Kyusho Knockout Mini Course. Go have a read about it! You cannot go wrong!
