5 Best Combat Pressure Points

* Best Combat Pressure Points

I do not personally like the word "combat" being used in the martial arts. But that is because I am a man who believes words have meaning and cannot be interchanged because someone wishes to. A great example of this today is the misuse of the word "phobia." That means an irrational fear of. Because I disagree with an ideology or way of life does not mean I am afraid of it. Anyway, lets today look at the 5 Best Combat Pressure Points. 

So when I say the 5 Best Combat Pressure Points, what is it I am referring to? Combat is essentially a military term for engagement with an enemy. I do not consider the meaning to apply to martial arts because martial arts is about self defense training in peaceful times.

And that is OK. So the best combat pressure points need to be very specific. Therefore to the purpose of this article they mean pressure points with a very predictable result and no setup required. 

Best Combat Pressure Points

With this in mind I am going to provide you with a list below, and a link to a more detailed explanation of each pressure point. One of my students left my school back in 2006 to join the Canadian military. He commented of all the things he learned in training under me that the pressure point information was really the only part that translated and worked in hand to hand, kill or be kill combat.

I wish more people understood this.

#1 Pressure Point GB-20

Best Combat Pressure Points

The first pressure point on this list is GB-20. Why is that? Because of its relationship to the occipital nerve at the back of the head it is an excellent pressure point to cause massive brain dysfunction.

And as an added bonus it is a "blind strike" which means the person does not see it coming, and therefore cannot mount any real defense. 


#2 Pressure Point BL-10

Next is a very dangerous pressure point. This is Pressure Point BL-10. Perhaps one of the most dangerous pressure points on the body this one fits the criteria of Best Combat Pressure Points perfectly. 

BL-10 is also tied in with the occipital nerve and the brain dysfunction associated with this.  BL-10 is also a kill shot. Hit correctly you can cause damage to the brainstem which is right there, with very little tissue to protect it. 

It's position at the back of the head also makes for another important "blind strike."

Best Combat Pressure Points

#3 Pressure Point SP-21

Best Combat Pressure Points

Pressure Point 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! 

A solid strike to this area can break ribs, cause lung punctures and has the potential to stop the heart. And its location at the weakest point in the rib cage is a definte bonus! 

#4 Pressure Point ST-09

Again we look at a very dangerous pressure point, and how, like the above this is a one shot kill. Pressure Point ST-09 is located right over the carotid sinus. The carotid sinus is a Baroreceptor, whose purpose is to detect an increase in blood pressure.

When it detects an increase, it sends a signal to the vasomotor center of the via the vagus nerve. This initiates a Vasodilatation, and slowing of the heart rate to lower the blood pressure to normal.

Striking the area will cause an immediate drop in blood pressure resulting in unconsciousness and potential death. 

The Pressure Point Stomach 5

Damage to the carotid artery and sinus are possible which if not treated immediately will result in death. This is a dangerous pressure point, but definitely one of the very best combat pressure points. 

#5 Pressure Point HT-01

* Best Combat Pressure Points

I have only written about HT-01 in my book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. However it is a very dangerous pressure point. The location is in the arm pit itself.

The pressure point is right over the top of the axillary artery  and therefore great artery damage is also done when this pressure point is struck.

A medium strike, especially on the left side of the body will stop the heart instantly. Lighter strikes will damage the shoulder and cause sever brain dysfunction. This is a fight stopper no matter how you use it. 

in Conclusion

I hope you found this article to be of benefit to you. I also hope my have given you a deeper understand of just how dangerous pressure points can be.

Pressure Point BL-56 [Bladder]

Shares

Pressure Point BL-56

* Pressure Point BL-56

For the last year I have been writing articles about once per month on different, important pressure points on the body for self defense. Today I am going to look at Pressure Point BL-56 [Bladder Meridian] as well as BL-55, 57 because there are so very close together, and all extremely important. I will focus on BL-56 because it gives the best effect. However any of the pressure points in the calf can cause sever damage and end any assault. And a typical strike is going to be blind without intense training. 

Pressure Point BL-56 - Location

* Pressure Point BL-56

Located in the in the center of the of the gastrocnemius muscle, midway between BL-55 and BL-57 is pressure point BL-56.

The gastrocnemius muscle consists of a lateral head, a medial head, and their single tendon of insertion.

Each head is a thick muscular column, separated from the other by the back of the knee. As they descend, they come together.

The medial head is larger and wraps around the leg more towards the front than does the lateral head. The muscular heads end at or slightly above the middle of the leg, where they attach to their tendon.

The tendon descends and fuses with the tendon of the soleus muscle, which lies just beneath it, forming the Achilles tendon

The gastrocnemius muscle raises the heel, which lifts the body. It also assists, though minimally, in flexing the knee joint. This muscle group carries a tremendous weight burden making it susceptible to attack.

Effects of Striking

There are 2 basic methods of successfully striking these 3 pressure points in total. And that is either with a front kick using the toe, or with a heel strike. My personal preference is with a heel as this can be done from the position of being in front of the attacker.

The results of a strike are instant cramping of the muscle, which depending on the condition of said muscle will include damage up to and including massive tearing of the tissue and possible separation of the muscles from the Achilles tendon. Interesting the stronger the muscle, the more potential for damage.

Knockouts are also possible at pressure point BL-56 due to the brain shock that can occur with a solid strike. This is an excellent area to teach novice students in self defense training. 

In Conclusion

Pressure Point BL-56 CONCLUSION

A strike to Pressure Point BL-56 is a fight ender. No one can continue an assault with calf and/or tendon damage. Walking becomes impossible.

If you have ever awakened in the night with a calf cramp imagine that at a magnitude of plus 10. 

Over the last year these articles have been very popular. And they are also a very important part of the learning process. However to use such articles for reference can be a very big challenge. You need information like this all in once place!

Therefore have a look at my eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. This reference eBook which has been called the Gray's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu cover all 361 plus pressure points on the body like Pressure Point BL-56. Follow this link to learn more now!

Dangerous Pressure Points LU-01-02

Dangerous Pressure Points LU-01-02

* Dangerous Pressure Points LU-01-02

Today I want to talk about 2 pressure points, and these are Dangerous Pressure Points LU-01-02. Like ST-09-10 I am discussing these 2 together since it is most likely if you strike one you will also be striking the other. I have personally seen the results of striking these pressure points therefore I caution you about their usage!

Location

Dangerous Pressure Point LU-01 is located below LU-02, 6 cun lateral to the Conception Vessel, in the first intercostal space. In the pectoralis major and minor muscles. It can only be accessed if the shoulders are back and the arms in a neutral or back position like retracted for a punch. 

Pressure Point LU-02 is found in the depression below the acromial extremity of the clavicle, between the pectoralis major and the deltoid muscles

Note that Dangerous Pressure Points LU-01-02 are both position at the top of the lungs. 

Effects of Dangerous Pressure Points LU-01-02

As I have stated, these are extremely dangerous pressure points. The first thing we must consider is that LU-01 is an Alarm Point. Alarm Points have a direct effect on the health of the organ they are associated with. In this case pressure point LU-01 is the Alarm Point for the lungs. 

A strike will cause an activation on the Lung Meridian on both sides of the body. If there are any lung issues with the person being struck they will be exacerbated. Triple Warmer will also be activated bi-laterally as well. The strike will cause extreme pain, and difficulty in breathing that can become chronic  if not treated.

Pressure Point LU-02 when struck can have a much more profound effect. First breakage of the collar bone is possible if the impact is sufficient. Extreme pain as well as a knockout are very likely. Death is also a possible but not probable from the strike alone. The danger comes from the potential long term effects to the lungs themselves. Sometimes the diaphragm will spasm and this is very dangerous if not treated immediately. I go over this in my Pressure Point Healing Course

In Conclusion

Dangerous Pressure Points LU-01-02 CONCLUSION

Learning about Dangerous Pressure Points LU-01-02 and other is very valuable. Knowledge can be very powerful when applied with training. 

The more you understand about each pressure point the better the result with be.

Please note the number of links to other articles that are related. These will all help your learning!  And yes this is a massive undertaking, but the results are worth the effort. Please feel free to leave me a comment here

Anatomy of a Pressure Point

Shares

Anatomy of a Pressure Point

Anatomy of a Pressure Point

What is the Anatomy of a Pressure Point? Understanding this is essential of you wish to not just learn the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu, but also if you wish to be able to apply the knowledge. 

And application is where most people will fail.

What is a pressure point?

First we have to discuss exactly what is a pressure point. The anatomy of a pressure points simply this. A pressure point is a place on the body where an nerve ENDS. 

Or a place on the body where a nerve branches off in a "Y." Plus where 2 or more nerves intersect and/or cross over each other. This is also referred to as a nerve cluster

Pain and/or Brain Dysfunction will occur depending on which nerve is involved in the strike or activation and also what part of the body is involved.  The actual accessibility of some nerves will depend also on the body type of the person being used to train with. [or the attacker]

* Pressure Point TW-18 [Triple Warmer]

Striking a pressure point will result in anything from mild discomfort, extreme pain, and even unconsciousness up to and including death. 

How does this work?

Signals come from the brain flow through the various nerves to different parts of the body. However this is a 2 way path. Nerves also communicate through the nervous system to the brain to report all kinds of different information.

These are low level electrical signals, oscillating in both intensity and frequency to carry information. A strike to the area of the nerve will cause such a signal to occur. This signal reports damage or potential damage to the area. A strike will also if strong enough cause localized swelling and bleeding resulting in changes in Chi flow in the area. 

This change in Chi flow also has a direct effect on the electrical impulse travelling the nerve pathways.

What is Chi?

Chi Combat Course

The first thing the uniformed will say is there is no scientific evidence of Chi. That is a false statement.

While biology has no interest in the subject and therefore have not studied Chi, basic physics proves its existence. Electromagnetic inductance shows the existence of Chi. It however does not prove the purpose of the energy present, just its existence.

In acupuncture there is something called an EAV Machine that measure this the energy flow we call Chi. A strike to a pressure point therefore will cause a change in Chi flow, which will affect the electric signal in the nerve. 

How many Pressure Points are there?

When we look at one side of the body only, as meridians mirror on each side, we have 361 common pressure points. 

There are 12 Meridians on the body, each with a different number of pressure points on them. This does make learning a challenge, but if you follow the various systems I teach it is certainly not impossible.

There are also pressure points which are labeled Extraordinary Pressure Points. These add to the original number of 361. Included in all of this are Alarm Points, Associated Alarm Points and Special Purpose Points

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

That is a lot of digest I know! But I have provide links within the article to many of the keywords in the article to related materials This will help a lot!

One BIG suggestion I have is if you are new to Kyusho Jitsu to enroll in one or more of my FREE Kyusho Courses. This will get you started.

And I also suggest grabbing a copy of my eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. This book breaks down all 361 plus pressure points on the body, thus making the understanding of the Anatomy of a Pressure Point a little easier.

Triple Warmer Meridian [Heater]

Shares

Triple Warmer Meridian 

Triple Warmer Meridian [Heater]

Today I am going examine the Triple Warmer Meridian [Triple Heater] as it is one of the most commonly misunderstood meridians on the body. 

First the meridian is known by 2 different names. The older of the 2 names to my knowledge is the Triple Heater Meridian, but today it is most commonly referred to as the Triple Warmer Meridian. But no matter which name you prefer to call it this is one of the most powerful and important of the 12 meridians on the body. 

Triple Warmer Meridian - General Facts

The Triple warmer Meridian is located on the upper extremities beginning in the ring finger. Below are a list of the meridian attributes.

  • 23 Pressure Points beginning on the ring finger and terminating at the temple near the corner of the eye.
  • Fire Element Meridian
  • Polarity is Yang
  • Stance is forward bo or walking stance.
  • Sound is Hee
  • Colour is red
  • Diurnal Cycle or time of day is 9:00 to 11:00 pm.

The above information is also referred to as the Kyusho Jitsu EPS.

Triple Warmer Meridian - Purpose and Effects

Triple Warmer serves 2 very important functions for the body. Originally in ancient Chinese Medicine the Triple Warmer Meridian was understood to regulate the heat in the 3 regions of the body. Therefore if you had a fever it was Triple Warmer having energy issues.

Today however we know that the meridian has a more important function. It controls the endocrine system of the body. Or in other words your emotions. 

* Triple Warmer Meridian [Heater]

For our main focus we would need to consider the Hypothalamus which is the glad that lies in direction relationship with emotions.

You may or many not already know what I am about to say.

No matter what pressure points you strike on the human body, or no matter where you strike on the body you activate the Triple Warmer Meridian bilaterally.Depending on the force of the strike and other varying conditions will dictate how intense the activation is.

* For our main fucus we would consider the Hypothalamus which is the glad that lies in direction relationship with emotions.

Why is this? Because it is human nature to have an emotional reaction to violence, in fact you have a reaction to everything in your environment, varying again on the circumstances. 

In Conclusion

Triple Warmer Meridian CONCLUSION

It is beyond the scope of this article to go into exact circumstances and effects.

But if you control the emotional reactions, or can anticipate the emotional reaction you control Triple Warmer, the person attacking and therefore the situation. 

And yes I am talking about Mind Control.

Attacking Alarm Point CO-12 [Stomach]

Shares

Attacking Alarm Point CO-12 

* Attacking Alarm Point CO-12

Today I am going to be launching a new series of articles on "attacking" certain important pressure points on the body. And today we will have a look at Attacking Alarm Point CO-12 which is the arm point for Stomach. For a more detailed look at the function of Alarm Points follow this link.

Attacking Alarm Point CO-12 - Functioning 

Located centerline of the body on the Conception Vessel midway between the umbilicus and the xiphoid process. [Navel and bottom center of the ribs]. This pressure point in struck in and down.

The best striking action for the Conception Vessel is grasping. This will yield the strongest reaction and therefore result. 

The results of attacking Alarm Point CO-12 are very important. Once activated because this is the Alarm Point for the Stomach Meridian this means that Stomach is now activated bilaterally on the body at a high level. 

* Attacking Alarm Point CO-12

At this point a light strike to ST-05 will result in dizziness while a stronger hit will result in a knockout.  This is certainly enough to end most attacks, however there is much more to look at here.

High Level Results

Because Attacking Alarm Point CO-12 is so effective and because it is an Alarm Point lets take a look at the other effects. 

Attacking this pressure point because it is on the conception vessel will result in the activation of ALL THE YIN MERIDIANS on the body. Think about that for a moment.  So what happens because of the activation?

For starters you now have the ENTIRE 5 parts of the Cycle of Destruction with ONE STRIKE. This Alarm Point opens up a smorgasbord of followup strikes that will result in a knockout

Let's look at 3 easy knockouts from here aside from ST-05

  1. GB-20 Striking GB-20 immediately after attacking Alarm Point CO-12 will result in a knockout. Your fire and metal hand can then follow up to wood and the knockout will follow with little force or effort. If you are off target you will see a great deal of brain dysfunction.
  2. GB-24 - This is the perfect setup pressure point for a body knockout. When striking GB-24 you will also hit LV-13. Both are Alarm Points. The result will be a knockout.
  3. SP-11 - Being that all Yin on the body are active this will cause a strong reaction from attacking Spleen. With a medium to hard front kick to SP-11 a knockout will occur!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

I hope you can now see the great potential in understanding not just Alarm Points but also the 15 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu

And having an in depth knowledge of what the function of each pressure point is will increase your potential and effectiveness. 

This is the reason that last year I wrote the eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. If you have any comments or questions they are welcome here.

Pressure Point TW-18 [Triple Warmer]

Shares

Pressure Point TW-18

* Pressure Point TW-18 [Triple Warmer]

Today I am going to talk about Pressure Point TW-18 [Triple Warmer], well actually 2 pressure points TW-18 & TW-19. The reason for 2 is that it is almost impossible to hit one without hitting the other. And the results are DEVASTATING.

Pressure Point TW-18 - Location & Attack

Pressure Point TW-18 is located in the center of the mastoid process behind the ear, just above TW-17.

This is a very delicate area of the skull with very little to protect the brain itself if the area is assaulted. 

The best method to attack these two pressure points is with a palm heal strike in toward the front of the face. This is also referred to in Dim Mak as the brain shock pressure point.

* Pressure Point TW-18 [Triple Warmer]

Pressure Point TW-18 - Effect

With this information in mind, in an attack in which the assailant is within close range,a strike can be make inward,  into the power position [Body Mechanics]. A medium strike to the area, which is very easy to pull off when correct body mechanics and movement are fully understood, will result in an immediate knockout with serious disorientation once the attacker regains consciousness. 

This is because of the serious "brain shock" that occurs even with a light strike to the area. 

A hard strike will result in fracturing of the skull, sever concussion and brain trauma resulting in death. Death can occur very quickly also from a hard strike.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Is this a pressure point you had ever considered using before?

The more information you know about each pressure point on the body the more effective you can make your self defense system. 

This was the reason last year that I wrote my book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.

It has also be my selling eBook to date! It covers information on all 361 pressure points on the human body, with reference to exactly location. The effects of striking are also covered if they are relevant. Below I will give you the change to get 2 FREE chapters of the book to have a look!

The truth about pressure point is that if you do the study they WORK. Despite what the uneducated wish to say! You will always find people either too lazy or too stupid to find success in life. Don't listen to these people.

They need to be negative in order to feel better about themselves. Do NOT engage these people. You feed their mental illness and make things worse.  This today is one of the reasons for the issues in the west. 

I welcome your comments as always.

Pressure Point TW-11 [Triple Warmer]

Shares

Pressure Point TW-11

* Pressure Point TW-11

Today I am going to discuss in some details what is sometimes referred to as the "arm break point" Pressure Point TW-11. There is more to this pressure point than meets the eye and while the usage is seen in MMA rings, their results are not what they could be if the pressure point was properly understood and utilized. 

Pressure Point TW-11 - Location

This pressure point is located under the tendon at the elbow joint.  To activate this pressure point properly the hand needs to be facing upward with respect to the elbow joint itself.  Exact location can be found on a partner by bending the arm and placing the palm on the elbow.  When you close the hand the knuckles will lie directly on the pressure point. [North on the arm]

This Pressure Point TW-11 react to both a rub and a strike. Activation causes the muscles to release the elbow as the primary result and to release the shoulder joint secondarily. 

This reaction is why it becomes to very easy to dislocate the elbow itself.

You will see the arm bar used as a submission hold in various ring fighting events.  Leverage is applied to cause pain and or get a submission from the opponent. 

However if stimulation of Pressure Point TW-11 was or occur the elbow would dislocate immediately.

In the ring this could be done with the leg.

* Pressure Point TW-11

 However the injury to the joint is sever and would require surgery to repair the damage done. This pressure point works on everyone I have ever encounter in my years of Kyusho Jitsu Training.

In Conclusion

Pressure Point TW-11 CONCLUSION

This is an outstanding pressure point to add to your self defense system.

I have had personal street experience with the one and know how effective it is.

If you are in need of a solid, real life street self defense system have a look at my Humane Presume Point Tactics Courses at Kyusho Jitsu University

Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

Shares

Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

* Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

What am I referring to when I say Pressure Points Inguinal Crease? The Inguinal Crease is the crease between the torso and the thigh. It creates a 'V' shape in the direction of the groin.

For the Kyusho Jitsu student this is important because of the intersection of 2 very dangerous pressure points that make striking the area very beneficial in self defense especially when it comes to a larger opponent. So let really get into the Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

Here we are dealing with 2 pressure points that for lack of better words lie right over top of each other.  This is a "natural" Cycle of Destruction area and therefore a strike will always yield a substantial result. 

Pressure Point SP-12

Pressure Point SP-12 is the first of the 2 pressure points we will examine in the Pressure Point Inguinal Crease.

This pressure point is situated right over the femoral artery and can cause great internal damage to this artery.

It is also near the femoral nerve and will cause the whole leg to be paralyzed. 

The best strike to the area is in and down using a penetrating action.

A strong kick to this region can also knock the head of the femur and ball joint right out of its socket damaging the tendons and ligaments causing great pain and immobilization. 

*Deadly Pressure Point SP-12

There is also a potential for death if the femoral artery is damaged at this point. 

Pressure Point LV-12

The second is Pressure Point LV-12. This pressure point has a strong affect upon the genitals and when one is struck here, it feels like a strike to the groin and is as effective as a groin strike.

However it is easier to get to than the groin because the brain will not protect this area automatically.

Struck hard enough, this pressure point can kill due to the proximity of the femoral artery.

 A light to medium shot will cause the genitals to bleed. Internal physical damage is caused to the tendons and muscles at this area.

Damage to the artery can cause death.

The Pressure Point Liver 14
* Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

It is also know to cause serious prostrate swelling in men and permanent reproductive issues in women.

The angle and direction is the same as above, however you should chop the area.

Being that you cannot hit one pressure point without the other I suggest using the penetrating striking action as it is easier to perform in this area.

 How to Attack

This is one of the areas of the body people often ask how best to attack. First it is a strike for a large size difference. And if you train in any tradition Karate you already have the best movement to attack. That is the beginning of most Kata and something I refer to ask the "ready" stance. Drop into the horse stance and fire.  This is a great response to being grabbed, again my a larger attacker. 

The best tool is the index finger knuckle as the "eye of the phoenix." This is for taller attackers. The same movement on someone of your own size would work best at Alarm Point ST-25.

In Conclusion

Pressure Points Inguinal Crease CONCLUSION

This is an interesting area of the body to deal with. Highly dangerous due to the proximity of the femoral artery and nerve.  

Attacking is not as complex as it may sound. However I do suggest this is one area of the body est struck with both and simultaneously.

And be very cautious when training with a partner. A hard strike will be devastating!

Stacking Pressure Point Principles

Stacking Pressure Point Principles

* Stacking Pressure Point Principles

What do I mean when I am referring to Stacking Pressure Point Principles? Today I will go into great details on this important part of the path of learning the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu.

Stacking Pressure Point Principles - Starting Out

At the novice level of student in Kyusho Jitsu you are given the first 5 principles. Below is a short video I want you to watch to get you started, then I can breakdown things for you further.

The video is pretty basic.  In the video I discuss stacking the Cycle of Destruction with the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle. This is not really where I would suggest starting if you are a beginner to Kyusho Jitsu. If you are more advanced then definitely play with this one.

Stacking for Beginners:

One of the best places I think to begin to understand stacking is taking the Cycle of Destruction and using it with Attack with Yin - Yang. When you develop the basic idea behind this then you could add Proper Body Mechanics to this.

The difference you will see in effect can be profound, and this is an excellent training method.

Advanced Stacking

As you progress doing this you can then add more advanced principles. As the video shows using the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle.  This example would also go great if sound was adding the striking process. 

This idea is very straight forward but it does require you to have a solid knowledge of the basics. The better the foundation the easier all this is to accomplish.

Stacking Elements

The final aspect of this I will discuss today is stacking elements. While this is not exactly the same as Stacking Pressure Point Principles it is still as important. Rather then go into painful details here I will leave you with this video from my son Master Curt Mason explaining the stacking the fire element. 

Curt Mason is one of the most talented men I have know in Kyusho Jitsu and I do not say this because he is my son. Currently he is not longer teaching.

In Conclusion

Stacking Pressure Point Principles CONCLUSION
