All New Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy eBook

Every six months or so I write a post similar to this one to break down exactly what Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Anatomy is. With the study being as complex as it is often times the root information will get lost. This results in new students becoming frustrated and therefore stopping their learning. So lets get to it!

Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Anatomy - What is a Pressure Point?

A pressure point is a place on the body were a nerve ends, branches off in to "Y" formation or crosses over top of another nerve. Pressure Points are found surrounding joints as these are critical areas of the body and most easily damaged. I once had a comment on a post from someone who stated that there are pressure points where there are no nerves. This shows the misunderstanding people have.

Can you name a place on the body that has no nerves and therefore no feeling? The brain does not count!

Next, pressure points lie on energy pathways called meridians. There are a total of 12 meridians, these reflected on both sides of the body. These pathways are not hard wired like the nerves but exist as a result of the electrical flow within the nerves. Therefore existing on the outside of the nervous system. This is a basic physics principle called "electromagnetic induction." How a transformer works. People are bio-mechanical electrical beings.

Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes -Spleen Meridian

Each meridian on the body represent an organ. The number of pressure points on the meridian will vary based on its length and purpose. Meridians can be divided into 2 different categories one being Yin and the other being Yang. Below is this breakdown.

Yin Meridians
  • Lung - 11 Points
  • Heart -9 Points
  • Pericardium - 9 Points
  • Liver - 14 Points
  • Spleen - 21 Points
  • Kidney - 27 Points
Yang Meridians
  • Large Intestine -  20 Points
  • Small Intestine - 19 Points
  • Triple Warmer - 23 Points
  • Stomach - 45 Points
  • Gall Bladder - 44 Points
  • Bladder - 67 Points

Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Anatomy -Elements

Next we can assign a predominate element to each meridian. This information from a Kyusho Jitsu perspective involves one of the first 5 Principle of Kyusho Jitsu called the Cycle of Destruction. Now this is a basic principle however it does take time to really understand and get a FULL grasp of! With this in mind I have a gift for you! Follow this link and you can download a video that goes into complete details on how the Cycle of Destruction works. 

Now let's divide the meridians into elements.

The Cycle of Destruction
Upper Extremities
  • Heart - Fire
  • Pericardium - Fire
  • Triple Warmer - Fire
  • Small Intestine - Fire 
  • Lung - Metal
  • Large Intestine - Metal
Lower Extremities
  • Gall Bladder - Wood
  • Liver - Wood
  • Stomach - Earth 
  • Spleen - Earth
  • Kidney - Water
  • Bladder - Water

You likely have noticed that each element has a Yin-Yang pair and that there are 4 fire meridians. That is because fire is the creation element!

Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Anatomy - The Vessels

Finally today we will look at the 2 Vessels. The Conception Vessel on the front of the body shown in the chart above and the Governor Vessel found on the back of the body.  Each vessel represent a polarity of energy flow with Conception being the primary sources of Yin energy in the body and Governor being the primary source of Yang energy in the body.

  • Conception - 24 Points
  • Governor - 26 Points

These vessels have no association with any element!
