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

Shares

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?

* Deadly Pressure Point KD-21

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.

Deadly Pressure Point HT-01 [Heart]

Shares

Deadly Pressure Point HT-01

Deadly Pressure Point HT-01

The Heart Meridian, one of the most under rated of the 12 Kyusho Jitsu meridians on the body, and Deadly Pressure Point HT-01 is perhaps the more ignored pressure point on the body because of its location. But I can tell you the results of a strike to HT-01 are a fight ender, with the potential of it being a lethal strike

Deadly Pressure Point HT-01 - Location 

Deadly Pressure Point HT-01 is located in the armpit, AKA the Axilla. The contents of the axilla include the axillary vein and artery, as well as the brachial plexuslymph nodes and fat. The axilla is the space between the side of the thorax and the upper arm. 

Pressure Point HT-01 is located In the center of the axilla, on the medial side of the axillary artery, at the lateral inferior margin of the pectorals major muscle and in it's deep position the point lies in the coracobrachialis muscle. The axillary nerve is also present at this location.

* Deadly Pressure Point HT-01 [Heart]

Effects of Strikes to HT-01

What happens if you strike Deadly Pressure Point HT-01? Well let's take a look at this. A strike to HT-01 on the left side of the body will stop the heart immediately. This is accomplished with a little as a "medium" strike. This is also possible on the right side of the body, but not probable.

A neurological pressure point knockout will also occur immediately on either side of the body. A light strike will cause intense local pain and disorientation from brain dysfunction. Speech impairment will result as well as a very unstable emotional state.

Great physical damage can also occur in the area such as dislocation or the arm at the shoulder, permanent nerve damage, and possible rupture of the Axillary Artery or vein. 

In Conclusion

Deadly Pressure Point HT-01  CONCLUSION

As you can see this is another very dangerous pressure point and one that should never be played with. 

Access is not as difficult as you might think This is especially true with a taller attacker or if a front choke is applied

If you would like more information like this please checkout my eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of this article. This pressure point is also discussed in my article on 5 Best Combat Pressure Points.

5 Best Combat Pressure Points

Shares

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.

This is lost knowledge today. Please consider sharing these posts with like minded people.

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.

Anatomy of a Pressure Point

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.
