Pressure Point ST-35

* Pressure Point ST-35

Kick them in the knee cap! Not a bad idea really! The knee cap dislocates and breaks pretty easy, and not much force is needed! But there is a better place. That is Pressure Point ST-35!

Pressure Point ST-35 - Location & Effect

This is a very important pressure point in acupuncture. So if that is of  interest you I do suggest looking to this more. But that is beyond the scope of the article.  

When the knee is flexed, the pressure point ST-35 is in the depression below the patella and
lateral to the patella tendon. It is a trauma pressure point. This causes intense local pain and knee injury will also result! This will be immediately followed by severe kidney chi drainage and damage causing immediate loss of power and tiredness.

In someone with kidney issues serious problems, like kidney failure, can and will result over time. This can also be a knockout pressure point because of the trauma and reaction of the brain. 

Striking ST-35

This is not an easy strike! While the knee is easy to strike itself targeting this pressure point will require a lot of practice and opportunity!

And training to strike this area is a great idea, remember that any strike to the knee, if there is sufficiency force will result in damage. 

Knee strikes are conflict enders

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Training is the most important thing to consider when looking at self defense.

While an intellectual study like Kyusho Jitsu can cause a dramatic increase in the understanding and effectiveness of the art you study there is no substitute for physical training

We live in very challenging times. And in my opinion martial arts training is going to go underground and online. I hope I am wrong, and I guess time will tell.

Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

^ Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

Attack the knees they say! OK that sounds like a good idea! But exactly how do you do this? What is the best way? Today I will spend a few minutes discussing 4 pressure points located at the knees and the meridians involved. A place I refer to as the Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross.

Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross - Pressure Points 


There are 2 meridians running down the legs and 4 pressure points located at the knee joint that makeup the Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross. When attacked correctly these cause the knee to collapse and the attacker to go down.

Let's take a look at these pressure points now.



SP-9 & Sp-10

SP - Grand Cross


Here we are going to discuss pressure points Spleen SP-09 and SP-10. First SP-09 is located on the lower border of the medial condyle of the tibia.

At the depression between the posterior border of the tibia and the gastrocnemius in the upper part of the origin of the soleus muscle. 

Pressure Point SP-10, when the knee is flexed, the point is located 2 cun above the Medio Superior border of the patella, on the bulge of the medial portion of the Quadriceps
Femoris.

At the superior margin of the medial condyle of the femur, in the medial margin of the Vastus Medialis muscle. Another way of locating this point is to cup your right palm to the patient's left knee, with the thumb on the medial side and the other four fingers directed proximal to the pressure point is located where the tip of your thumb rests.

I will cover the attack of these points later in the article.

ST-34 & ST-36


Now we will take a look at the outside of the leg with ST-34 and ST-36. ST-34 is 2 cun above the laterosuperior border of the patella, between the rectus femoris and the vastus lateralis muscles of the thigh. 

And ST-36 is located 2 cun above the latero superior border of the patella, between the Rectus Femoris and the vastus lateralis muscles of the thigh.

^ Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

Attacking the Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

* Quads

To attack these pressure points individually is a waste of time. These would take a knuckle striking exactly the correct spot, which on the street is useless.

However the can be attacked very effectively with a kick or a stomp or the foot!

And like the name implies you strike across from one pressure point to the other in a cross like manner! Imagine an X on the knee, and you will attack either up and across to the other side or down and across to the other side.

Very simply really! Use cautious when training as the results are profound.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross CONCLUSION


This is an excellent set of pressure points to study and add to your self defense system! It causes the knee to "give out" on any person I have ever tried this on.

And the bonus on a person with a larger frame, assuming weight on the knee attacked, they will go down to the ground and dislocating the joint ending the FIGHT.

Deadly Back Pressure Points

Shares

Deadly Back Pressure Points

* Deadly Back Pressure Points

Today I a going to look at the most Deadly Back Pressure Points! This is going to be a list that includes the back and the back of the head and neck. Please note all pressure points on the back have the potential to be very dangerous! Therefore extreme care needs to be used when training to assure Uki safety!

Deadly Back Pressure Points - BL-10

This is perhaps the most dangerous of all pressure points on the back of the body! BL-10 has been covered in a previous article which is linked but it is well worth a second look. 

Pressure Point BL-10 is located 1.3 cun lateral to GV-15, within the posterior hairline on the lateral side of the trapezium in the origin of the trapezium and in its deep position in the semispinalis capitis muscle. 

* Dim Mak Pressure Point BL-10

And BL-10 is found just below the Medulla Oblongata, which is the lowest part of the brain stem. It is about two centimetres long.

The nerve fibers cross here, causing one side of the brain to receive information from the opposite side of the body. This is the control centre of the brain for many vital bodily functions. Therefore making the area very dangerous.

Hence one of the very dangerous effects of a strike here is damage to the brain stem which is right there! Unconsciousness will result and potential death and delayed death (Dim Mak) if a Chi strike is used and the electrical system is disrupted. 

Therefore please read the article linked above for greater details!

Deadly Back Pressure Points - GB-20

Not quite as dangerous, however very effective is Pressure Point GB-20.  

The 5 Best Knockout Pressure Points


GB-20 is located on the back of the head at the posterior aspect of the neck, below the occipital bone, in the depression between the upper portion of the Sternocleidomastoideus muscle and the Trapezius muscle.

A low to medium strike will cause a knockout and a hard strike can result in brain damage. Great local pain is also present with any strike. Concussions are always a risk with head pressure points. 

While Pressure Point GB-20 is commonly used for demonstrations of Neurological Knockouts there are dangers associated with it that do need to be addressed. While no where near as dangerous as BL-10 caution still needs to be used on this pressure point. 

GB-20 lies on the Greater Occipital Nerve as you can see in the diagram above. This is obviously tied into the functions of the Trapezius Muscle [Left] as well as other functions. 

Deadly Back Pressure Points - Bladder Meridian

For this the final part of the article Deadly Back Pressure Points I am going to address the Bladder Meridian on the right side of the body versus specific pressure points.  

The reason begin is this is the path of the Associated Alarm Points which basically makes everything dangerous and deadly!

Striking Associated Alarm Points like as an example BL-15. Pressure Point BL-15 is the Associated Alarm Point for the Heart.  And striking this pressure point has a direct effect on the neurological aspects of the heart itself. 

The Associated Alarm Points

In other words a correct strike with 2 Way Action, plus correct direction will stop the heart immediately! 

This applies to all Associated Alarm Points and the organ they represent! Please read that article on Associated Alarm Points

In Conclusion

Deadly Back Pressure Points CONCLUSION

I am sure from this article you can see the importance of the study of these specific pressure points and the entire area.

In fact I could discuss almost every pressure point! And please remember this blog with 200 plus articles is a wealth of Kyusho Jitsu - Pressure Point information.

Alarm Point CV-14

Shares

Alarm Point CV-14

 Alarm Point CV-14

I am a martial arts teacher who specializes in Pressure Points. My area of expertise is very specific. They are Kyusho Jitsu as well as my eclectic root art of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido. I do not follow the martial arts industry, other instructors or styles. I am going to give you a video below to explain a little more. But today we are going to discuss a very important pressure point that is Alarm Point CV-14. 

You can learn more about Alarm Points from the link provided. 

Alarm Point CV-14 - Location & Dangers

Alarm Point CV-14 is located on the mid-line of the abdomen, 6 cun above the umbilicus or 1 cun below the Xiphoid process of the sternum.

This is one of the most dangerous pressure points on the body! People have been known to die when struck, for instance with a baseball, right on the pressure point.

This pressure point can actually stop the heart dead in its tracks.

* Alarm Point CV-14

A person receiving a strike here, damaging the Xiphoid process can die from a coughing and/ or vomiting attack! Not to mention the physical damage that can be done to the heart muscle itself from the breaking of the xiphoid and sternum. 

Alarm Point for the Heart

As I also mentioned Alarm Point CV-14 is the Alarm Point for the heart itself (the organ.) Any strike to this pressure point has a direct effect on the health of the heart itself. If the person suffers from underlying heart issues death can result down the road.

* Alarm Point CV-14

This is also know in Dim Mak as "delayed death."  And if we are honest the vast majority of people today are in poor health, and overweight. This adds stress to the heart muscle, and also the lungs and other organs.

Thus making the study of Kyusho Jitsu in general and Alarm Points in specific very important! Learning to attack the systems that govern the organs of the body is a game changer! 

However in this article I can only touch on the subject. Also read the article here called Pressure Point CV-17 which is the Alarm Point for the pericardium, AKA Heart 2. 

In Conclusion

Alarm Point CV-14 CONCLUSION

The more you understand how pressure point work, and the harder you train in your root art the better your results will be!

Today, people do not want to do the work! The want an intellectual answer to a physical problem but will not do the physical work so the solution can be applied.

I will also include several links to related Alarm Point articles below to further your understanding about these critical pressure points.

Pressure Point HT-06

Shares

Pressure Point HT-06

Pressure Point HT-06

Today I am going to spend a few minutes taking about a pressure point that works on everyone. This is the "wrist" release Pressure Point HT-06. The effect we are going to discuss with Pressure Point HT-06 also requires it to be used on conjunction with Pressure Point LU-08.

Therefore this is kind of a dual pressure point article.

Pressure Point HT-06 - Location

HT-06 is On the ulnar bone side the arm, near the wrist at the tendon of flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, 0.5 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist. 

Pressure Point LU--08 is located directly opposite in the groove in the wrist where your pulse is taken. One cun above the transverse crease of the wrist, in the depression on the
radial side of the radial artery.

Both these pressure point respond to TOUCH or rub. This makes sense as due to their location a strike would be just about impossible.

* Pressure Point HT-06

HT-06 & LU-08 Effects

These pressure points are best used off of a wrist grab. Stimulation of both pressure points at the same time will cause the following effect.

Pressure Point HT-06 when pushed compresses a nerve located beneath the Ulnar bone. This is a "Y" shaped nerve, and when compressed caused the wrist to release.

Pressure Point LU-08 also has a "Y" shaped nerve beneath it. Compression here will cause a weakness in the hand causing the grip on the wrist to loosen. See the video below for more details.

Conclusion

Pressure Point HT-06 CONCLUSION

While this does work on everyone, or at lease anyone I have personally tried using it on, by itself it is rather useless.

Yes, you can work the person into an arm lock from this, however ending a conflict FAST, especially with the unprecedented violence of today's streets is a better idea.

But the good news this, that if you follow up with a strike to ST-05 you will get an amplified result at HT-06 sets up ST 05 directly!

12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

Shares

The 12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

This is a followup article on one I did last week that got me a lot of questions and feedback from those interested in learning more about the science of pressure point self defense. [Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Anatomy] So today lets talk about the 12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians on the human body. I will give you a detailed breakdown and a special gift at the end of the article for reading. 

12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians - Upper Extremities

The first basic breakdown of the meridians is to divide the body into upper and lower extremities. This being said there are 6 meridians for upper and 6 for lower. Plus this is further divided into 3 Yin and 3 Yang meridians for each set. If you have not already done so I highly recommend reading the article linked above. 

Small Intestine Meridian

As we look at the 12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians of the upper extremities we will see the Yin/Yang pair and also an element relationship for each. So lets do this breakdown below now.

Yin Meridians
  1. Heart - Fire Element
  2. Pericardium (sometimes called Heart 2) - Fire Element
  3. Lung - Metal Element
Yang Meridians
  1. Triple Warmer - Fire Element
  2. Small Intestine - Fire Element
  3. Large Intestine - Metal Element

Something else to note. The flow of energy in the Yin Meridians is leaving the body. This is sometimes also referred to as traveling "south." Energy on the Yang Meridians is entering the body, or traveling "North." 

12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians - Lower Extremities

Now we will look at the Lower Extremities. Once again we have 3 Yin and 3 Yang pairs, plus a change in direction for energy. You can also note that the meridian enter the head or not entering the head has nothing to do with this classification. The meridian systems runs very deep in the body and we are only discussing what can be accessed from the surface.

Kidney Meridian
Yin Meridians
  1. Liver - Wood Element
  2. Spleen - Earth Element
  3. Kidney - Water Element
Yang Meridians
  1. Gall Bladder - Wood Element
  2. Stomach - Earth Element
  3. Bladder [Urinary] - Water Element

And as I mentioned the energy flow direction is reversed for the 12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians of the Lower Extremities. Here the Yin Meridians energy flow is "North" or entering the body, while the Yang Meridians is "South" or exiting the body. All meridians are reflected on both sides of the body. Therefore depending on how you look at it, you can say 24 total. However conventional language is to only discuss one side. 

In Conclusion 

Success as a Kyusho Jitsu practitioner or teacher requires serious study. This is not a quick fix for self defense. In face there is not such thing as a quick fix! And the more concise information you have the better!

Gall Bladder Cluster

Shares

Gall Bladder Cluster

Gall Bladder Cluster

Today we will have a look at a set of pressure points often referred to as the "Gall Bladder Cluster" located on the forehead. This is a cluster of 3 pressure points shaped like a triangle that are excellent for use in Kyusho Neurological Knockouts. These are GB-13, GB-14 and GB-15.

Gall Bladder Cluster GB-13

We will begin with Pressure Point GB-13 located 0.5 cun inside the hairline and 0.5 cun medial to ST-08, directly above the outer canthus of the eye. The idea of a striking to GB-13 is to use an open hand, with 2 way action to also connect with the other 2 pressure points in the Gall Bladder Cluster at the same time.

Striking GB-13 will cause immediate brain dysfunction

Gall Bladder Cluster GB-14

Pressure Point GB-14 is located 1 cun above the middle of the eyebrow on a line directly above the pupil of the eye in the depression on the Superciliary Arch. Striking this pressure point straight in can cause neck damage due to impact. Striking in a downward motion which is what is suggested with cause brain dysfunction including memory issues as well as dizziness. 

The uki will feel like he is in a FOG.

Gall Bladder Cluster GB-15

Located 0.5 cun inside the hairline and directly above the pupil when looking straight ahead.
This causes the head to feel as if it is swelling up, or being pumped up like a
balloon. Striking causes the recipient to not know where they are for a second or
two if struck mildly, or KO if struck heavily.

Please Note: Striking ANY pressure point of the head can result in serious injury up to and including death depending on the power of the strike and each individual pressure point in question.

Example of Knockout

Below is a video example of a Knockout that finished at the GB Cluster. I had a better example before but it was deleted by YouTube as not appropriate. 

In Conclusion

Gall Bladder Cluster CONCLUSION

The GB cluster is an excellent area of the body to add to your self defense training.

The main reason aside from effect is the easy access.  I also suggest spending some time in study of Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy which will give you the functions and locations of all 361 pressure points on the human body.

Dangerous Pressure Point BL-15 [Urinary Bladder]

Shares

Dangerous Pressure Point BL-15

* Pressure Point BL-15

Today I want to take a close look at a very dangerous pressure point located on the Urinary Bladder Meridian. This is Pressure Point BL-15. This pressure point plays an important role in healing as well as destruction.  So let's get down to it.

Pressure Point BL-15 - Location

Pressure Point BL-10 is located 1.5 cun lateral to the lower end of the 5th thoracic vertebra. In the Trapezius and Rhomboid muscles & deeper, in the Longissimus muscle. 

Trapezius Muscle

*

Rhomboid Muscle

* Pressure Point BL-15

Pressure Point BL-15 - Effect

A strike to this pressure point can stop the heart as you will be affecting the actual neurological wiring to the heart at this point. The nerves exit the spine for the heart here. This is also a resuscitation pressure point in case of heart failure.

Striking correctly to BL-15 on the right side of the body on a person whose Heart has stopped has the same affect as jump starting the heart electrically. The left side is also dangerous, however not as much as the right side. Pressure Point BL-15 is an Associated Alarm Point on the left side. 

This resuscitation strike causes the body to release epinephrine

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

While this pressure point is very dangerous you do need to know what you are doing to gain access to it.

First all striking needs to be in the correct angle and direction, with 2 Way Action plus the correct Kyusho Striking Action

Also being a pressure point on the back the movement of you root art will depend on how easily you can access it. My root art of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido because of the implementation of Octagon principles makes accessing the back of the body pretty simple. If you have any questions please feel free to comment below my image at the bottom of the article.

3 Painful Chest Pressure Points

Shares

Painful Chest Pressure Points

* 3 Painful Chest Pressure Points

Striking the chest correctly can be devastating. So today I am going to talk about 3 Painful Chest Pressure Points that are easy to access and will yield great results in a self defense situation. There are many more than 3, but that is enough to get your feet wet.

The first place I must begin in talking about Painful Chest Pressure Points is that they must be struck in a certain manner. There is an correct angle and direction for each pressure point, which I will discuss, but also you need 2 Way Action.

# 1 Pressure Point LV-14

Painful Chest Pressure Points

This is a highly dangerous and painful pressure point that is often times forgotten. LV-14 is located on the mamillary line, 2 ribs below the nipple, in the 6th intercostal space.

This point is 6 cun above the navel & 3.5 cun lateral to GV-14, near the medial end of the 6th intercostal space.

This is a very important pressure point because it can have many different dangerous effects. A solid strike on the left side can cause the heart to stop.

The lungs can also collapse from a strong hit.

A knockout can also occur from a medium strike, as well as temporary vision issues. Not to mention serious liver damage occurring instantly and, in the future, if untreated. This pressure point is attacked by striking in and down with a chopping action.

LV-14 is also an Alarm Point which means it has a direct relationship with the organ itself Each organ on the body has 2 special points associated with them. These pressure points are not necessarily on the meridian associated with the organ either. These names of these special pressure points is Alarm Points and Associated Alarm Points.

#2 Pressure Point GB-24

Going from the top to the bottom of the chest area we now have GB-24. When your strike GB-24 you will also likely hit LV-13 too. So bonus! 

GB-24 is located on the upper abdomen, directly below the nipple, in the 7th intercostal space, 4 cun (finger widths) lateral to the anterior mid-line of the chest.

This area of the body, the rib cage is monitored and protected by the intercostal nerves.

Painful Chest Pressure Points

The intercostal nerves are part of the somatic nervous system, and arise from the anterior "rami" of the thoracic spinal nerves from "T1" to "T11." This is very important information in the study of Alarm Points and Associated Alarm Points. Information on Alarm and Associated Alarm Points are covered in the eBook The 15 Principles Plus One of Kyusho Jitsu.

This information above is the reason that GB-24 is a knockout pressure point. Attack in and down for best result. Chopping action too as this ia a wood pressure point.

#3 Pressure Point SP-21

I have talked about this pressure point many times. And when it comes to the most painful chest pressure points this one wins hands down. And it is also arguably the most dangerous pressure point on the body.

As you can see from the diagram below SP-21 is located on the ribs, about center of the bicep with the arms hanging. The exact location is on the lateral aspect of the chest, on the mid-axillary line, in the 6th intercostal space. An intercostal space is the "meat" between the ribs which is a hotbed for nerves!


Pressure Point Spleen 21

Why is this? These nerves help to protect the integrity of the rib cage. Now the obvious purpose of the ribs is to protect the lungs and subsequently the heart from damage. In this are also are the MAJOR arteries of the heart. Pressure Point Spleen 21 and its location are at one of the weakest place in the rib cage.

Also because the heart is located slightly to the left of center of the body. This also includes the major arteries. Therefore a strike to this area has a greater potential for serious damages. But this applies to both points. It is best to avoid them unless a life of death situation exists.

The correct angle and direction is straight across to the other side of the body. A penetrating action is best.

In Conclusion

Painful Chest Pressure Points CONCLUSION

The ribs serve a very important function! They protect the heart and the lungs.

And because of this critical function any strikes to the area, done correct will yield a massive result.

Rib breakage can result in death due to a puncture lung!

So I am sure you can see why this is all such a effective area of the body to train in striking. If you have any questions feel free to comment below! And if you need some good pressure point charts click here as these are FREE!

Deadly Pressure Point KD-21

Deadly Pressure Point KD-21

* Deadly Pressure Point KD-21

We hear the stories all the time, more often than anyone wants too. A child is hit by a baseball or soccer ball in the chest and dies on the field. Doctors who are not versed in eastern medicine have no idea as to why. But the answer is the child was struck with the correct "spin" at Deadly Pressure Point KD-21, usually on the left side of the body. 

Deadly Pressure Point KD-21 Location & Affects

The location of Deadly Pressure Point KD-21 is 6 cun above the umbilicus, and 0.5 cun lateral to CV-14. This is an extremely dangerous point as it combines a serious shock to the life
force meridian.  The shock also is crossing over to CV-14 which in itself
is a very dangerous pressure point.

Correct striking of KD-21 will result in immediate heart stoppage that requires reverse CPR to be immediately administered, or a defibrillator unit to shock the heart back into action. 

Reverse CPR is covered in details in my Kyusho Home Study Course.

Notice in the image to the right the position of the pads from the defibrillator? Which pressure points are being shocked?

Striking Actions & Angle - Direction

In order to get the result you must attack Deadly Pressure Point KD-21 with the correct striking action, plus the correct angle and direction. And we must not forget 2 Way Action

So how does this cause death from a strike by a ball? It does defy the odds when it happens.

The ball must hit the "heart side" or the left side of the body, dead on the pressure point, but spinning "clockwise." This is the only way to get the heart stoppage result! If you strike the other side of the body the strike would be anti-clockwise. 

As for a strike itself, you would attack with a "grasping" action for water, spinning with the right hand in an upset or clockwise direction. Therefore this will interrupt the hearts electrical connections to the brain and cause the stoppage. 

This is accomplished with a high-medium to heavy strike. And a softer strike will result in brain dysfunction as well as spasms of the diaphragm resulting in dangerous breathing  issues which could also result in death.

I cover healing this issue in my Kyusho Healing Course.  Deadly Pressure Point KD-21 falls into the category of a "Combat Pressure Point."

In Conclusion

Deadly Pressure Point KD-21 CONCLUSION

And I am sure you can see how dangerous this pressure point is and that is should never be used for demonstration purposes.

Striking the pressure point is very straight forward and require little training.

But extreme caution needs to always be used.
