What are the 3 Most Painful Pressure Points on the human body? There are many different pressure points that when stimulated correctly can cause vast amounts of pain! Learning and understanding these points is an important part of the science of pressure point self defense. So let's take a look at 3 or my favorite "pain points."

Triple Warmer 17

This is a great point! It causes intense pain on about 90 percent of the people I have worked with. Those are pretty good odds too! The point located as per the diagram ​at the bottom on the ear, where it meets the neck. Activation is pressing in and forward towards the front of the face. The best weapon to use is the middle finger. Try it out using other fingers and see the difference in the results. If you seal on the other side of the head, at TW-17 with your other hand the pain at least doubles! 

Striking this point can cause a knockout and because of its relationship with the spine is an very dangerous point if hit hard.

Pressure Points of the head

This is another massively painful rub point. Located at center-line, below the nose at the meeting of the gums.  Pushing in and rubbing side to side, while preferable holding the back of the head is excruciating! This is a great point to use if someone gets on top of you. They will not stay there long if you attack this point! It can also be struck down which can cause a knockout.

This is a wonderful strike point. When hit correctly with 2 Way Action, and straight across to the other side will cause crippling pain. If the strike is of sufficient force a knockout can also occur. Holding / supporting the neck on the opposite side with your other hand will also intensify the effect.
