3 Most Painful Arm Pressure Points

Most Painful Arm Pressure Points

What are the Top 3 MOST Painful Arm Pressure Points? The arms are critical in self defense because this is what the attacker brings forward first! Therefore a solid understanding of the most effective and painful Pressure Points of the arms is a must!

When I say effective pressure points I am referring to the ones that work on the MAJORITY of people tested. When I say "painful" I am referring to a result from pain that does not allow the fight to continue. Nothing in self defense can be guaranteed. There are no guarantees in life.

Painful Arm Pressure Points - LI-10

Painful Arm Pressure Points

This is an outstanding pressure point, located on the upper part of the forearm near the elbow. This is a STRIKE point, however you can also "press" on it, but I personally do not recommend that in a self defense situation. 

This Pressure Point is struck straight through like an arrow.  Note the "through!" You hit this point HARD, striking through  towards the ground.  There is no "light touch" for pressure points. Always remember light is for training and therefore not hurting your partner. The streets are DIFFERENT!

When this point is hit hard there is intense pain, and the hand will open slowly as the pain shoots towards it. The entire arm will go numb from the elbow to the hand. Any weapon will be DROPPED. The effect can last 10 to 20 minutes depending on how hard and clean the hit is. But always assume a short recovery time! 

Reference - Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

LI-10:

One of the most popular and easiest to access pressure points on the body LI-10. Located 2 cun below LI-11, on the radial aspect of the radius, in the extensor carpi radialis brevis and longus muscles.

This pressure point can have a huge effect on the body. A strike straight down and through will paralyze the arm, and in some cases can potentially stop the heart.

Striking upward causes a shock wave to rise up the arm into the upper body. Will cause knock out if struck hard enough. When used with ST 9 has the potential for begin a deathblow!

This pressure point will affect the entire Large Intestine Meridian, especially around the arm, neck and face, hence the fact that ST 9 works really well with this pressure point. Again, when struck slightly upwards, the lower body will lose Chi and cause nausea. I have personally seen instances of diarrhea that can last for many days of untreated.

Painful Arm Pressure Points - LU-06

LU-06 Painful Arm Pressure Points

This is another very effective pressure point located on the inside of the arm halfway between the elbow and hand on the thumb side.  This point, located mid radial bone works on everyone I have ever tried it one. This is why it is such an effective pressure point.

Striking all pressure points and getting a good results means you need to be using 2 Way Action. Below is a short video demonstrating both Lung 6 and 2 Way action. 

Also note, the tighter the grip, the more painful the result! There is also something else very interesting about this pressure point. If the attacker has any chronic lung issues, striking this point will cause them to cough. Therefore telling you more about them and potential attack points. 

Reference - Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

LU-06:


This Pressure Point is located on the palmar aspect of the forearm, on the line joining LU 9 to LU 5, 7 cun above LU 9. The point is in the brachioradialis muscle, in the lateral margin at the upper extremity of the pronator teres muscle and the medial margin of the extensor carpi radialis brevis and longus muscles.

When struck hard the arm will immediately begin to go numb down towards the hand. The hand will also open slowly if the fist was closed. The tighter the fist is held the more pain associated with the strike.

Chest pain is also common. Striking too hard, too often can also cause sever breathing distress which can lead to death. This Pressure Point like LU-05 can also be used for Lung resuscitation.

Painful Arm Pressure Points - TW-17

TW-11 Painful Arm Pressure Points

Painful Arm Pressure Points

This is the last of the 3 most effective pressure points of the arms and it is one of my favorites. This point also works on everyone I have ever tried it on! I also had the occasion many, many years ago to use it in self defense. This was an incident in 2007 in Caracas Venezuela at the airport. The result was a fleeing attacker with a dislocation of the elbow.

Now this pressure point is located just above the elbow joint at the tendon.  The best result will come when the hand is twist so the palm is in the same direction as the elbow, exposing the point more clearly. However a hard strike will compensate for the hand position. Striking or rubbing this point will cause the elbow to release making dislocation easy. 

Here is another short video explaining how to active this point!

Reference - Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

TW-11

Located 1 cun above TW-10. This pressure point weakens the elbow joint itself making it very easy to break or dislocate the elbow. Basically, stimulation releases the joint.

This is an excellent point to stimulate in any self defense techniques in which the arm is straight. This is one of my personal favorite pressure points.


In Conclusion

There are literally a hundred pressure points on the body that can cause intense pain when attacked. However not all are very accessible, which in self defense is a BIG consideration. This is why I chose these 3 to begin with.

3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

Top 3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

Crippling Leg Pressure Points

3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

Today we will talk about the Top 3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points for self defense you need to know! There is an old saying, that when in doubt attack the legs! 

But what is the most effective way?

3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

The bigger the attacker the most fragile the legs. Legs do a lot of work as I am sure you realize. But when someone is BIG they work beyond what they should. Today there is an epidemic of obesity in the world. Especially in men. 

But that does not stop them from wanting to fight, or be a criminal! And you must understand your attacker, and what his weaknesses are! That is part of the study of the science of pressure point self defense.

Let's Attack the Knees!

Crippling Leg Pressure Points

This is the usual train of thought in the martial arts. And yes the knees are a weak area, especially on heavy people. There is a cluster of 4 pressure points around the knees that make great targets! I discuss these in DEPTH in the Novice Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course!

But today we will bypass the knees and go for PAIN! 

Leg Pressure Points

Let begin with the first of 3 leg pressure points with GB-31!

3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points GB-31

1) Gall Bladder 31- This point is located as you can see on thigh, midway down on the Yang side. It is hit straight in like an arrow! The knee makes a GREAT weapon against it too! What happens? The leg will CRAMP. If you strike it hard enough when the leg cramps the quadriceps will cramp so badly they will TEAR. This pressure point is also often called the Charlie Horse Point. You can read a full article on the pressure point here.

You cannot walk let alone continue to fight under these circumstances!  


2) Bladder 56 - As you can see from the diagram this on of the leg pressure points that lies mid calf. 

Here is Bladder 56 3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

Striking this point, like GB-31 will cause an INTENSE calf cramp. I accidentally hit this point once too hard on my Uki and he ended up with a muscle tear. I know you are getting the idea! The best weapon for this is the heal of your foot! If you have heave boots on you will get an even better result! You can also use BL-57 or BL-58. But I have found BL-56 the most effective. 

If you can't walk....can't fight!


3) Spleen 11 - I have talked about SP-11 many times! Located mid upper thigh on the inside this is perhaps the BEST of all leg points. I know people expect me to go with SP-6, which is a great point! Most of all it is a setup point. 

But today I want PAIN!

Because of where the point is located it can cause a neurological knockout if you hit is hard enough. The attack is straight in like an arrow. The knee is a great weapon and so is a front kick! If you want to know HOW it can cause an knockout read 5 Best Knockout Pressure Points Here.

Spleen Meridian Leg

There is also a very good possibly with a hard strike of cracking or breaking the femur bone in the upper leg. As I said before, this ends the altercation.  Here is a full article on SP-11 too!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

The legs are one of the very best places to attack in self defense. And there are many more amazing pressure points other then these 3.

I chose these 3 because they work on 99% of the people I have tested on! 

Also they are not difficult to use! Therefore the reason for me choosing these. If you would like to discover more pressure points on the legs, or other areas of the body then you need to look at my new eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy!

Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

The Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

What are Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points? Before I go into some details here first let's lay the ground work in case all of this science of pressure point self defense is new to you. 

First I will define what a pressure point is. A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve comes to an end, where nerves cross over each other, and where a nerve branches off.

There are 309 standard pressure points on the human body, plus 52 more points on the "vessels" which brings the total to 361. Now this is ONLY looking at one side of body however with reference to the meridian pressure points. 

These pressure points have specific characteristics that are associated to the meridian they lie upon, the element of the meridian. And the polarity of the related organ of the body. Here is a link to an article on Pressure Point Basics which will help you if you need more information!

What are Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points?

These are essentially pressure points that were discovered after the mapping of the original 361. They are found in many different places on the body. These Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points also have no direct relationship to any meridians or elements. 

Mue-28 -Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

In this bad editing job I did here on this picture I give you Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points MUE-28. The pressure point is located in very close proximity to the Heart Meridian and therefore in the case will take on the characteristics of the Heart Meridian.

When struck across the arm, with 2 way action it releases the wrist.

The use of Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points does vary from point to point. Plus not all of them have any real application in Kyusho Jitsu. That being said I will give you a breakdown of some of the more useful ones. 

And I should warn you, this is not novice material! 

Extraordinary Pressure Points Summary

  • They have no relationship to Yin or Yang.
  • Have no underlying relationship with each other.
  • "Tend” to take on the characteristics of the closest meridian, but now always.
  • May run over-top of another meridian
  • Also help to coordinate the balance of Chi and Blood
  • May run over-top of another meridian
  • Assist in the functions of the regular meridians
Ex=HN-9 Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

Extraordinary Point Listing and Locations

 1. M-HN-3 - Glabella area or the area between the eyebrows and nose
 2. M-HN-9 - Beside the nose.
 3. M-HN-14 - Bridge of the Nose
 4. M-HN-19 – Located on the lateral corner of the chin
 5. M-CA-23 - Umbilicus Triangle
 6. M-CA-18 - Lateral Pelvis
 7. M-UE-24 - Between the 2 and 3rd metacarpal
 8. M-EU-26 - Hollow of the elbow
 9. M-EU-48 - Anterior Shoulder area
 10. M-UE-27 – Above the knee

M-Hn-19 Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

Now I am not today going to go into details about the functionality of each of the Extraordinary Pressure Points. This is all very advanced information.  However understanding their existence, and their basic use is important.


In Conclusion

Extraordinary Pressure Points have a very important function in Dim Mak because they upset the natural blood and energy balances of the body. 

Keeping all of this kind of information in balance, able to reference is a difficult task. There are a lot of other very "special pressure points" each with very important and different affects on the body.

Pressure Point Stomach 9-10

The Pressure Point Stomach 9-10

As we approach the end of this series on various pressure points of the body I encourage you to head over to our eBook website and grab a copy of Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy so that you have this kind of detailed information on every pressure point on the body. So today I conclude with Pressure Point Stomach 9-10, one of the most dangerous pressure points (2) on the body.

Onward!

The Pressure Point Stomach 9-10

Pressure Point Stomach
9-10 - Location

The primary focus of this article is on ST-09. This is because this is arguably the most dangerous of the 2 pressure points. It is however almost impossible to strike one without hitting the other. And they both react pretty much the same.

Pressure Point ST-09 is situated 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.

Here is an excerpt from my book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy on ST-09


Pressure Point Stomach 9-10 - Affects

When either or both of these pressure points are struck there is an immediate, violent and dangerous response from the brain. The blood pressure will drop quickly causing a "vascular faint" or knockout. This can be accomplished with a low to medium strike. 

A harder strike can cause serious damage to the nervous and arterial systems of the area which will result in death.  Pressure Points Stomach 9-10 are also Dim Mak points because an energy strike to this part of the system, both nervous and vascular, will cause enough "dysfunction" to result in death overtime. 

Pressure Point ST-10 - Location

ST-10 which is considered just as dangerous a pressure point as ST-09 is located at the anterior border of the Sternocleidomastoid Muscle midway between ST-09 and ST-11.

The Sternocleidomastoideus Muscle

In Conclusion

The dangers of these 2 Pressure Points CANNOT be overstated. NEVER strike these in training! They are only for life and death street situations.  

With Kyusho Jitsu Training must come responsibility! Now that you are aware of the consequences of striking these 2 pressure points realize that misuse is negligence!

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Are there any other dangerous martial arts pressure points you are curious about? Ask here! I am happy to answer!

Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 Painful Point

Shares

Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9

The Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9

Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9

Pain is a wonderful thing when it comes to self defense and Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 is one of the excruciatingly painful pressure points when attacked correctly. 

So today let's as a bonus take a look at this little gem of a pressure point. The first thing I will address before we move on is what an Extraordinary Pressure Point is. After the original 361 pressure points were mapped others were discovered. These pressure points, which are nerve ends, do not lie on a meridian. However they do "tend" to take on the characteristics of the meridian they are closest to.

As an example MU-E-28 which is on the Ulna bone takes on the characteristics of the Heart Meridian. 

Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 - Location & Affect

As you can see in the image above Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 is located on the face, approximately one thumb nail above LI-20. This lies very close to a cavity in the skull, which you can feel with your fingers on your own face.

The Facial Nerves

At this area there is a facial nerve that branches into a "Y". The pressure point is attack by pushing in, and rubbing towards the outside. This causes an acceleration in energy and immense pain.  If you seal the back of the head with the other hand this intensify the pain! 

The head with rotate in the direction of the pressure of the rub allowing for control of the attacker. You would strike the Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 in the same direction. 

Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy 

All New Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy eBook

Like becoming a doctor, to truly advance in the science of pressure point self defense you need to study the human body. The more information you can digest the better! After I achieved my Master Level in Kyusho Jitsu I picked up a copy of Grey's Anatomy at Dr Steve Stewart's suggest to advance my knowledge. 

I then realized the need for a very comprehensive book of pressure points for the Kyusho Jitsu student, rather then the acupuncture student. Thus Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy was born!

Pressure Point Liver 14

Shares

Pressure Point Liver 14

The Pressure Point Liver 14

Today we will take a look at a pressure point of incredible importance, but it very often overlooked. That is Pressure Point Liver 14 [LV-14]. Below are some excerpts from my eBook coming January 15th 2019 called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.

Please note this is a very dangerous pressure point and should not be played with. 

Pressure Point Liver 14 - Location

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.

The Intercostal Space

Pressure Point Liver 14 - Caution

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.

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.

The Associated Alarm Points

Associated Alarm Point relate directly to the neurological aspect of the organ they represent. All Associated Alarm Points are located on the Bladder Meridian on the right side of the body. 

How Alarm Points function and their importance is covered in depth in my advanced Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Courses. Beginning at 2nd Dan Black Belt. However I do have some workshop footage of Alarm Points found at this LINK. Plus these are covered in great details in the Kyusho Master's Series eBook/Video set. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

From this article you can get a general idea of just how important Pressure Point Liver 14 actually is, especially because it is an Alarm Point.

And it is a very important pressure point in the study of Dim Mak.

Pressure Point GB-31 [Gall Bladder]

Shares

Pressure Point GB-31 [Gall Bladder]

Today I will continue on our weekly discussion of Pressure Points with one of the most underrated, Pressure Point GB-31 [Gall Bladder]. Even many people who have never studied the science of Pressure Point Self Defense called Kyusho Jitsu will have a relationship with the pressure point.

The Pressure Point GB-31

It is sometimes referred to as the Charley-Horse point on the leg. I know in high school we all love to knee someone here!

Pressure Point GB-31 [Gall Bladder] - Location

The Popliteal Artery

The Pressure Point GB-31 is located on the mid-line of the lateral aspect of the thigh, 7 cun above the transverse Popliteal Artery "crease." When a person is standing erect with hands by their sides, the pressure point is located where the tip of the middle finger touches the leg. 

Pressure Point GB-31 - the effect

When the pressure point is struck, usually with a blunt object like the knee the entire leg will go "dead." The pain is "off the charts" and the attacker will be unable to walk. A knockout is possible because a solid strike can break the femur and therefore cause serious injury including death do to potential internal bleeding. This is not probable however due to the curvature of the leg at this point. 

And using a small tool such as the heal or a big toe, placed dead on the pressure point can cause heart issues. The reason is the swelling inside the leg, cause circulation issues in the leg. However this is very unlikely.

Therefore it is not considered a dangerous pressure point, but a Painful Pressure Point

In Conclusion 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Now because of the almost guaranteed result when striking this pressure point it is a must for self defense training.

Therefore it is one you will want to learn and pay attention too! 

Do you train using this pressure point? Are there others you also really like? Leave me a comment and let me know!


Pressure Point GB-31 - Self Defense

Most of all it is BEST for a Level One escalation event when you feel the need to stop a potential assault dead in its tracks! Self Defense is not a technique but a mindset. Therefore it is always best to treat your self defense training as a separate entity from your root art. 

Personally I made this distinctions 20 years ago, and therefore made the adjustments then.

Pressure Point Stomach 5

Pressure Point Stomach 5

The Pressure Point Stomach 5

Pressure Point Stomach 5

I know this is the one many of you have been waiting for! A favorite of anyone interested in neurological knockouts, and that is Pressure Point Stomach 5 [ST-05]. Therefore today I am going to go into painful details on how ST-05 works, and why you should be using it! 

[ST-05] Pressure Point Stomach 5

The Masseter muscle

Masseter muscle

The pressure point is located anterior to the angle of the mandible, on the anterior border of the Masseter Muscle, in the groove like depression appearing when the cheek is bulged 0.5 cun anterior to ST 6. [Excepts from Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy]

The effectiveness of this pressure point will depend on the proximity of the nerve. On some people it is very close to the surface and therefore any strike will have an affect. On others it is buried deeper and requires a much stronger hit to stimulate. 

This is were the sayings "cast iron jaw" and "glass jaw" come from in the boxing world. 

Arteries of the Neck

The Vagus Nerve branch also runs in this area. This is sometimes called the "heart" nerve. 

These are the reasons the brain reacts as strongly as it does to protect these areas.

One of the main reasons for the strong reaction by the brain to a strike at this nerve is the vast number of arteries in the area. Including the "jugular vein" under the jaw bone. 

The Jugular Vein

While this is not consider to be a "deadly" pressure point there can be a lot of damage done to the area with a solid strike. Therefore caution is advised when using this pressure point for demonstrations. Most of all protect your Uki!

Knockout at Pressure Point Stomach 5

Below is a short video of a knockout I did a few years back at ST-05. Below I will explain. 

The video is a breakdown from a Korean ITF Taekwondo Kata called Dan Gun. Now we do not do the Kata in the traditional way as we are not a TKD school. The Kata calls for a back-fist, but I instead put the back-fist hand to his face and struck my hand. 

This causes the energy to spread out giving a very nice result without the same risk of damage to the jaw. Now this is a demonstration method and you certainly would not consider the for the street. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Pressure Point Stomach 5 is an excellent target for self defense training. But in real life you would hit with all it is worth!

Pressure Point Pericardium 2

Shares

Deadly Pressure Point Pericardium 2

The Pressure Point Pericardium 6

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.

Deadly Pressure Point Pericardium 2 - Why?

The 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

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. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Why is PC-02 one of the most deadly pressure points on the body? This is because of its direct connection with the functioning of the heart via the nerves in the vicinity of the pressure point.

Question? Should I write about more "deadly" pressure points? Comment Here!

Pressure Point Governor Vessel 26

Shares

Pressure Point Governor Vessel 26

The 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. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

GV-26 is an awesome pressure point to add to your self defense system. Pain is a great motivator and it also offer the opportunity for escape. Striking this pressure point in and down is also devastating!

Have you had the opportunity to work with this pressure point? Please let me know HERE!


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 finalized and available for purchase!.
