The Pressure Point Pericardium 6

Pressure Point Pericardium 2

Today, since this is the beginning of a new week, i will take a look at Pressure Point Pericardium 2 [PC-02].

First I will tell you straight out that Pressure Point Pericardium 2 is not one to be played with especially without direction from a QUALIFIED Kyusho Jitsu Instructor. Therefore this article is for information ONLY.

Pressure Point Pericardium 2 - What is Pericardium?
The Pericardium of the Heart

Pericardium of the Heart

Some of the information below is from the eBook
Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

To the left is an image of the Pericardium of the Heart

The first place I will begin at the Pericardium. What is a pericardium? Very simply put this it the "sac' within the chest cavity that contains the heart. This is the reason why some Kyusho Jitsu / Dim Mak teachers will often call this meridian "Heart 2." 

Pressure Point Pericardium 2 - Location
The Pressure Point Pericardium 2

Pressure Point Pericardium 2

PC-02 is located 2 cun below the end of the anterior axillary fold, between the two heads of the biceps brachii muscle. Like PC-01 this is a very dangerous pressure point and cannot be take lightly.

Striking this point straight in will cause terrible pain and the person to drop to their knees. If they were exhaling at the time of the strike loss of breath often occurs.

A knockout can occur from striking this pressure point as a result of over stimulation of the radial nerve. Striking on the left arm is very dangerous, however either side can yield a very serious and strong result. The angle and direction of the strike is "straight in" like an arrow going through.

This is NOT a pressure point for demonstrations! Now I have personally used this pressure point in self defense training in my Dojo in Canada. And I must say I was even surprised at the extreme result with not that much of a strike. 

Do you want more?

I have been doing these blog post on different pressure points now for several weeks. Then you need to consider increasing your resource levels! I suggest 2 books to enhance your study! 

The first one is my Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy eBook, which is the Grey's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu! The second is to get Grey's Anatomy itself! I have had a copy for years!

But right now I am going to offer you a "Sneak Peak" copy of my eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. Just fill out the form below, verify your email and it is on the way to your inbox!

Pressure Point Governor Vessel 26

Shares

Pressure Point Governor Vessel 26

The Pressure Point Governor Vessel

Pressure Point Governor Vessel

I love pressure points that lie in the upper 90 percentile for effectiveness and Pressure Point Governor Vessel 26 is one of them! As I continue today on the series of effectiveness pressure points for use in self defense we will address GV-26.

And this is truly one of the MOST painful pressure points on the human body! 

Pressure Point Governor Vessel 26 - Location & Use

GV-26 is located on the inside of the upper lip, at the junction of the frenulum and the upper gum. It is attacked by pressing in and down on the upper lip, with a 2-Way Action. A vibrating side to side motion works best! Small motion while pressing in HARD.

Kyusho Jitsu World

When you press and rub the pain is excruciating, however it is easy for the attacker to pull back. This is why this pressure point is best sealed from the back of the head with the use of the left or right hand depending on the defense and situation.

If you can grab a hold of GB-20 on both side with the left hand then the pain will escalate dramatically. This is a great defense if you are on your back with the attacker on top!

To increase the effectiveness of this make sure you have one foot as flat on the ground as possible. Lift the shoulder of the arm you are using to attack GV-26. Seal with the other hand at rub HARD

The pain is so intense the average person will dismount immediately and usually in a very violent motion to escape the pain. Others will pass out on top of you. I have experienced both effects on different partners. Plus I have never encountered a case with this pressure point that did not work. Therefore why I consider it to be an upper 90 percentile effective rate. 

A Better Pressure Point Understanding

Your root style of martial art will greatly dictate the areas you feel the most comfortable striking. And every person is somewhat different in their preferences for striking. The tool used to attack also must be taken into consideration.

This is why I have been writing the new book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. This new book will breakdown every pressure point on the body, its location and what happens when attacked!

This way you can look at the areas you prefer to attack, and decide which pressure points are the most effective for you!

Therefore with this in mind I am going to offer you a FREE "Sneak Peak" at Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy which is scheduled for release on January 15th 2018.

Pressure Point TW-23 [Triple Warmer]

Shares

Pressure Point TW-23 [Triple Warmer]

The Triple Warmer Meridian

Triple Warmer Meridian

Today as I continue the series of different pressure points on the body i am going to checkout one on the head. This is a popular pressure point for knockouts. However "CARE" really needs to be used here as the pressure point is "dangerous." This is Pressure Point TW-23 [Triple Warmer or Triple Heater as it is often called]. You can get FREE Pressure Point Charts by clicking HERE.

Pressure Point TW-23 - Location
Pressure Point TW-23

Pressure Point TW-23

The location of Pressure Point TW-23 is in the depression at the lateral end of the eyebrow, on the lateral border of
the zygomatic process of the frontal bone, in the orbicularis oculi muscle.  A strike to the area can cause a break in the ocular bone and serious damage to the eye. 

Pressure Point TW-23 - Effect
The Bones of the Face

The ocular bones are the weakest bones in the body and therefore will break very easily. Hitting TW-23 with any kind of force will increase the weakness of the muscles in the area. A knockout can result from a correct light strike in order to protect the eye, Hit downward towards the jaw. 

Many years ago back in the early 90's I had a friend serious hurt due to a strike to the area of Pressure Point TW-23 during a no contact Tae Kwon Do tournament. He required many, many hours of reconstructive surgery. And he lost partial vision in the eye. He was not hit very hard either! This is why I always advise caution with the pressure point!

Therefore please use this pressure point with extreme caution! Below is a video of a Neurological Knockout I did at TW-23 many years ago. Note the light tap for this one. On the street you would hit HARD.

The student went out very easy, mostly because he had been used several times for knockouts during the evening. However it gets the point across. I do have a much better one however YouTube deleted it on me. At a later time I will upload it to another less political platform. 

The Pressure Point Series

I have been for the last month of so doing this series on Pressure Points of the body to help promote my new book. The book is called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy and will officially be released on January 15th 2019. However I am shooting for New Years Day release!!

The Pressure Point Pericardium 6

Pressure Point Pericardium 6

Once again today I am continuing the series of different, very important pressure points on the body. And today we have Pressure Point Pericardium 6! This is one of my personal favorites. That is mostly because my root art is Hapkido and therefore a hands on grappling system. 

Pressure Point Pericardium 6 - Location

PC-06 is located 2 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist, between the tendons of the palmaris longus and flexor carpi radialis muscles, in the flexor digitorum superficialis manus muscle. In it's deep position in the flexor digitorum sublimis muscle. Below is a closer look.

The Pericardium Meridian

Pericardium Meridian

Pressure Point Pericardium 6 - A Setup Pressure Point

PC-06 is primarily a setup pressure point. While not the easiest pressure point to strike when you do it causes disorientation and a general weakness of the entire body. It also has an important usage as what I call a "Special Alarm Point" as pressing it will cause a weakness in the chest area. 

It is also a very important pressure point in Dim Mak and the healing arts.  As an example of usage in a grab, if you press down on PC-06 and then strike GB-24 you are very likely going to get a knockout. This will depend on the force used in the GB-24 strike. If this does not cause a knockout the motion of the body from the strike will give you a clear shot at GB-20.

PC-06 is a pressure point you will want to study in more details and work into your self defense system!

Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24

Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24

The Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24

Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24

Today as my series on different pressure points for use in self defense I continue with Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24.GB-24 is an extremely important pressure point on the body because it has a "special" function. Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24 is also an Alarm Point. This is critical information. 

Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24 - Location
 intercostal nerves

The intercostal nerves

GB24 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. 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. 

Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24 - Alarm Point

Now to go into depth on Alarm Points and their uses in one article is not possible. Coming in the future I will be dedicating a eBook to the subject as I have never completely covered it from advanced to master levels. I have gone into detail before, but nothing like I will be in the future. 

The Gall Bladder Meridian

Gall Bladder Meridian

Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24 is the Alarm Point for the Gall Bladder [Organ and Meridian] itself. What this means is that when you strike this pressure point the Gall Bladder Meridian is activated bilaterally on the body at a high level. Triple Warmer is also activated bilaterally. 

In these articles on the different pressure points on the body I have not gone into the 5 elements to any extent. However this is something I am assuming knowledge in. But I have something for you while we are on the topic. 

Here is a link to a FREE copy of my Cycle of Destruction Video. This will open in a new window so you can download while reading. 

You can also get a FREE copy of the meridian charts to the left here.

Because of how important the rib cage is, and that it is the only protection for the heart and lungs GB-24 is a "body knockout" pressure point. It lies in an area of weakness in the chest and so the nerves react to a solid strike very violently. A chop here in a self defense situation can cause unconsciousness, a break or crack in the ribs and also a possible dislocation of a rib. Sever damage to the ribs can cause a lung puncture and result in death. 

Below is a sample knockout at Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24

Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

The Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

Continuing with our series looking at specific pressure points we will look at one of my favorites. The Pressure Point Large Intestine 18 [LI-18] located on the neck as you can see from the image above.

Why is this one of my favorite pressure points? Because Pressure Point Large Intestine 18 is one of the most Painful Pressure Points on the body when struck correctly and has other crippling benefits as well! It is very close to ST-09 which is a bonus!

Pressure Point Large Intestine 18 - Location - Angle and Direction

This pressure point is located one the lateral side of the neck, on the side of the Adam's apple. Almost dead center of the neck between the tendons, towards the from below the jawline. 

The correct angle and direction is straight across to the other side like an arrow. And of course always using 2 Way Action! This is also a great pressure point for use of the Ji Hand of Kyusho Jitsu! These ancient and "special" striking modalities are true game changers! 

The resulting strike will have several different potential affects. All of which come with debilitating pain! So much pain that a strike can end a conflict instantly. 

Effect 1

A solid strike to Pressure Point Large Intestine 18 on one side will cause the person to drop down to their knees in pain. The pain is very slow to dissipate, which allows time for escape in a self defense situation.  

A simple inward knife hand or "ridge" hand will accomplish this very well

The Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

Effect 2

Hit with enough force and using a tool that will penetrate deeper into the neck [Ji Hands] a strike will cause unconsciousness. This is due to the face that the neck is a major center of blood flow and nerves. As you can see from the diagram below this is the home of the Accessory Nerve, a branch of the Vagus Nerve.

The Accessory Nerve

Accessory Nerve

Arteries of the Neck

The Arteries of the Neck

As you can see from this diagram the nerve is responsible for protection of these arteries and veins and this is why Pressure Point Large Intestine 18 [LI-18] is a neurological knockout pressure point.

When you understand how these systems work, then you can increase your effectiveness in use of Kyusho Jitsu. Knowledge is power, but applied knowledge is a super power!

Effect 3

If you strike LI-18 bilaterally, at the same time with the same amount of power you cause a massive energy disruption in the system. Likely with a solid enough strike a deep knockout. If the strike is "lighter" a thundering headache on the sides of the head will result! This comes in handy for low escalation self defense situations. If you do this in a demonstration healing the headache is simple. 

You can learn more about low escalation self defense techniques from our Humane Pressure Point Tactics Course. Grab this FREE Video to learn more.

Pressure Point Spleen 21 [Dangerous Point]

Shares

Dangerous Pressure Point Spleen 21

Pressure Point Spleen 21

Location Pressure Point Spleen 21 

Warning do NOT play with this pressure point unless you have been properly instructed! And it is best to do so carefully with the help of a QUALIFIED Kyusho Jitsu instructor! So that being said why am I going to discuss Pressure Point Spleen 21 today? Because ignorance is not BLISS, it is just plain ignorance.  Nothing will stop a bad person for doing something bad. However an education will stop a good person from doing something FOOLISH. 

Pressure Point Spleen 21 - Location

As you can see from the above diagram 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!

Vascular System Chest

The Vascular System Chest

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. 

Pressure Point Spleen 21 - Attack Angle and Direction

The correct angle and direction for striking Pressure Point Spleen 21 is straight in and across like an arrow. Fortunately a fist is a POOR weapon against this area of the body and will usually only "crack" a rib, which is sufficient to end a conflict! Real damage does require a more advanced striking tools, which while not hard to learn or apply does take some time and study.

For the true student of Kyusho Jitsu this is well worth the effort! It is also essential in Dim Mak. 

A strike to Pressure Point Spleen 21 will cause breathing issues as well as a feeling of constriction of the chest. SP-21 is a Special Alarm Point. For Dim Mak this causes an imbalance of the Blood and Chi side of the body. However these topics are beyond the scope of this article. Therefore I suggest you look at the links provided.

The Pressure Point SP-21 is a great pressure point to train for self defense. Striking it will end a conflict very fast! But when training caution must always be used as to not injury your partner.  SP-21 is also an excellent Knockout Pressure Point for the street. But I strongly recommend to never use this for demonstration purposes! 

Below is a short video on SP-21 from our Kyusho Question of the Day

Pressure Point Spleen 11

Shares

Pressure Point Spleen 11

Pressure Point Spleen 11

Location: Pressure Point Spleen 11

Today as part of the series on different pressure points and how they work I am going to talk about one of my very favorites! This is a leg point, and one of the most sensitive and therefore important pressure points on the body. This is Pressure Point Spleen 11

Pressure Point Spleen 11 lies on the inside portion of the leg, located halfway between the inguinal crease (groin) and the knee. Slightly to the front. The above picture will give you a good idea of its location. 

Pressure Point Spleen 11 - Location and Purpose

Now that you can see the location of Pressure Point Spleen 11 it is important to understand how this pressure points works and why it works. First it is located on the Femoral Nerve, which runs down along side of the bone in the leg.

The Femoral Nerve Branch

Femoral Nerve Branch

When you attack this pressure point [SP-11] or the nerve with a kick as an example you compress the nerve against the bone. Not only does this cause great pain in the leg but also reports to the brain the possibility of a break or damage to the Femur. The femur is the bone in the upper leg as you can see in the picture to the left.

So what makes this such a big deal? Bones break in many different places on the body. Why does this pressure point cause such a reaction?

Pressure Point Spleen 11 and the Femoral Artery

The reason for the massive dysfunction of the brain, including causing a knockout is the location of the Femoral Artery which is the main heart artery in the leg. 

So what are the reasons for the reaction? Simple: a break in the femur can result in a tear, puncture of severing of the femoral artery which can in many instances depending on severity result in DEATH

This is why as an example people who break their legs in skiing accidents will pass-out,  as the nerve has been stimulated. 

This is a defense mechanism for protecting the body and one all Kyusho Jitsu students need to understand how to take advantage of! This is in my view one of the 10 most important pressure points for self defense!

Femoral Artery

Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations

The Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations

Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations

One of the main reasons for failure when it comes to the science of pressure point self defense is NOT knowing the Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations. And the fact is that often times the charts you are using are wrong. You can and will find variance in charts from different countries. So how are you supposed to know? 

Therefore today I will talk about how to find Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations!

Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations - The Charts are Wrong?

Are the acupuncture charts wrong? No they are not wrong. However you do need to understand that acupuncture is an exact healing science / art. Kyusho Jitsu and Dim Mak are NOT exact sciences. These sciences of self defense are ones of exploration, not exact road maps. 

Back many years ago I was doing a demonstration of a knockout back in my home town of Windsor Ontario. I was using a teenager for a Stomach 5 knockout. But, this young man had a very unusual jaw line. He was a very heavy Fire Element person! ST-05 was not where I expected to find it! After I located the point,  before the show I discovered it hurt my hand because of the location to strike there. This was in fact the ideal place to use an "iron bone hand" but I did not want to do that! So I cheated the knockout!

The knockout went fine. But this is an important note to make when studying Kyusho Jitsu. No humane body is exactly alike. You need to study anatomy also to be able to find not just pressure points, but also how the nerves run! 

An example the nerve at ST-05 in my experience is available in at least 2 different ways. And the one I teach, for me has been the most effective place to strike. But if I send you to just a "chart" it will not be obvious to you! Your do need the charts! But you also need more study as well! Personally I also have a copy of Grey's Anatomy, and I am not talking about the TV Show!

Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations - The Nerves
Pressure Point Knockouts

The Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations

In this diagram, one I use often because I have modified it to show the pressure point, we have GB-20. The exact location of the pressure point is in the grove at the base of the skull. Good luck hitting that point well! You will most like hurt your hand doing so! The correct angle and direction is in and up to the other side of the skull. 

And YES it does work! But if you come a little downward, and strike just below this pressure point you get a better result. You are hitting the "lesser occipital nerve" very solidly. Angle and direction, you hit in and down stretching the nerve and getting a very dramatic effect on the body. Striking this way is easier, and more effective. I would still call this a GB-20 strike, but the point I strike is NOT the exact pressure point!

And we also tend to be that "area of activation" I speak of often in novice or beginner Kyusho Jitsu Courses
