Pressure Point TW-23 [Triple Warmer]

Shares

Pressure Point TW-23

Pressure Point TW-23

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

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. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

As you can see from all this information TW-23 is a very powerful pressure point. But remember caution is needed with this one. Death is a possibility under the right conditions as well as permanent eye damage.

Is there a particular pressure point you would like to see featured? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Pressure Point Pericardium 6

Shares

Pressure Point Pericardium 6

The 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

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!

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

You cannot image the power and influence this pressure point has until you use it. Plus it does not require a strike to get a  result. Simply activating it with touch is sufficient!

Had you had any experience with Pressure Point PC-06? Please tell me about it here!

Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24

Shares

Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24

The 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

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

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

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

It is very important that you know your pressure points! The above information will help you to be able to use GB-24 effectively! However caution needs to be used always. Any pressure point on the chest cavity can have very serious results up to and including death. 

I am a very experience practitioner, and in this video I used sound in order to get a result without relying on heavy impact.

Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

The 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! However I must caution that this pressure point is DANGEROUS if struck hard. 

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
The Accessory Nerve

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.

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!

Arteries of the Neck

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.

Thank you for reading our article on Pressure Point Large Intestine 18 and its use in self defense! 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

The more you understand about each pressure point you are looking to target the better the result you get will be! That is the reason I wrote the book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy!

Pressure Point Spleen 21 [Dangerous Point]

Shares

Pressure Point Spleen 21

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!

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. 

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 21

In Conclusion

I cannot overstate how dangerous this pressure point is! But people play with it anyways! Often times people will say to me "how can I know it works if I don't hit it?" Do you need to know a gunshot to the chest works? If something happens to the Uki using this pressure point it is called Gross Negligence and carries a JAIL term. And there is no waiver for gross negligence. 

It is like allowing an Uki to fall to the ground after a knockout. You are being negligent! If you have any questions please feel free to comment here.

Pressure Point Spleen 11

Shares

Pressure Point Spleen 11

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. And SP-11 is a CRITICAL self defense pressure point!

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.

Pressure Point Spleen 11

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. 

And 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

Pressure Point Spleen 11 - Knockout

Below is actual and real video footage of me from about 7 years ago doing a Knockout in SP-11. When you understand how things actually work, you then begin to see the real benefits of the science of pressure point self defense.

If you have questions as to the accuracy of this information feel free to ask any medical practitioner.

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

I hope you can see from the above information why this pressure point, SP-11 is such a critically important pressure point for self defense? The results can be devastating for the attack.

Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations

Shares

Exact Kyusho Pressure Point Locations

LI-20 Painful Face Pressure Points

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!

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!

Kyusho Pressure Point Locations - The Nerves

Pressure Point Knockouts

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

Kyusho Pressure Point Locations - How to Find Them!

12 Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

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!

Understanding Real World Self Defense

Shares

Real World Self Defense

Real World Self Defense

Are you looking for Real World Self Defense? Or do you assume your current level of training is enough? With today's proliferation of martial sport there is a dangerous illusion that has been constructed. And that illusion is that "if you can fight in a ring, or in a bar you are safe from street attacks." But the FACTS are, that this is very far from the truth!

You can be a REAL martial arts expert and master, and I know many, many such people. But their ego believes that somehow what they learned makes the safe. And the body count over the years proves them WRONG. I knew personally one such gentleman who interfered with a robbery and got stabbed for his trouble. Sadly he did not make it. Most of all his ego cost him his life! 

Real World Self Defense vs Sport

I have stated my thoughts on sport and martial arts. I am not a fan, however that is not my point here. In a ring there is a certain mentality. This is one of WINNING and doing so with a certain set of rules. Back in my day competing these rules also included certain values which I no long see today. These men and women are great athletes, but it is always good to know your limitations. 

Real World Self Defense

This image is from UFC 131 in Vancouver BC. This might have been a great fight. I don't know because I don't watch.

However my point in the article is this is NOT what a real attack looks like. Nor does any part of this fight ever resemble a street attack.

What is happening here has a purpose and that is WINNING. On the street it is only SURVIVAL!

Winning is based on fitness levels, therefore performance and the ability to counter attack with the right move at the right time. Also the person who wishes to win the most often does. 

Real World Self Defense - Martial Arts Linage

I am very hard on my own people. There is a very BAD view that somehow or another you are not truly a martial artist unless you have a direct linage to a founder of a style, or a high name master. This is the biggest pile of bullshit I have ever seen in something that does not tie to politics. 

Martial Arts Linage

You cannot live vicariously via your linage! Many of these great master understood what Real World Self Defense means. However it does not mean their students do, or that the teachings still have application today! Students have a tendency to believe that their teachers knew it all! That is a very dangerous thought process!

Tradition is OK, as long as it does not become dogma. There must always be growth otherwise you are doing backwards.

What is Real World Self Defense?

Real World Self Defense is a combination of mentality and movement that provides a path to successfully defending yourself on the streets today, in a real attack. What do I mean by a real attack? When someone wants "something" from you and they intend to commit bodily harm to you up to and including death. That does not happen in a ring!

Knife Attacks

Most knife defense programs as based on the ideas people have seen from Hollywood. Such as someone holding a knife this way and stabbing down.

This is a BIG misconception of how things happen. It is OK to train the idea, but the student needs to know this idea is fantasy!

Many of these criminals have nothing to lose, and there is no one more dangerous than someone with nothing to lose! There are so many misconceptions of really happens in a self defense situation that it is alarming. What is even more alarming is that these misconceptions are being taught as factual! Now I am not saying martial arts teachers should stop teaching the things they do. However I am saying that they need to teach the difference between technique and application.

They also need to make sure that as they evolve their techniques into application that they have done their homework!  Not made assumptions that they are right! 

Real World Self Defense Solutions

Yes there are solutions for this problem! And it is NOT the systems that automatically come to mind! Learning them is great! However you need to develop a solid foundation in real world self defense skills and then integrate it into your current system. Yes this does include the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu. However without a solid base in your root art for self defense Kyusho Jitsu will not be as effective as it could be!

This is where I give you Humane Pressure Point Tactics. This is a 3 level system teaching what really happens on the streets and how to be safe FIRST! It deals with escalation and learning to control any situation. Have a look at the video below and it will explain everything about this new series of courses.
