That is a GREAT question! What are the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense? The answer is not black and white, and I have done years of research to come up with a conclusion!
So let's get into it and talk about the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense!
First we need to look at what criteria I used to determine the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense. Not all pressure points when it comes to self defense are created equally! There are many pressure points that work very well on pretty much everyone tested. But there "EFFECT" is minimal therefore in self defense they are not much use!
As an example, LU-8 and HT-06. These pressure points when used together will cause a release of both the wrist and the hand! I have never met ANYONE that I could not make this work on! But the problem is on the street "buddy" is gonna be punching my face in while I am working these points!
Therefore they are not the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense!
The next question is how did I decide on the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense?
A valuable effect is when a strike or manipulation will cause the attacker to be:
Without these kinds of effects the pressure point in question cannot be included in this list! Other pressure points can be used in lower escalation situations, which is not the purpose of this list. I am also excluding "deadly" pressure point because they are in a category of their own!
For the purpose of the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense pain is only counted when it is high enough to override the rush of adrenaline the attacker is experiencing! Pain only matters when it is crippling!
Plus all these Best Pressure Points for Self Defense must be easily integrated into any root art or self defense system! The idea behind the science of pressure point self defense is not to change the martial art you currently study. The purpose is to enhance its effectiveness!
That is the something our teaching at the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance has accomplished!
