One of the cornerstones of pressure point study is the Kyusho Cycle of Destruction. There are a total of 15 Principles, but the first 10 are the true building blocks to success! Consider them like a Parthenon. Without a solid understanding of these 10 principles success can be a BIG challenge!
So what is the Kyusho Cycle of Destruction? Here is the initial breakdown for you. Now this is Novice Kyusho Jitsu, however the basics, the foundations are the building blocks of success in the science of pressure point self defense.
Now this is the basic breakdown, therefore now we need to look at the body.
The human body contains 12 meridians. And each meridian in part has a predominant energy based on one element. There is not an absolute, but a predominance. Below is the breakdown of the body meridians and their corresponding elements.
I think and I hope you see the obvious here. Your attack/defend tools being for the most part are the arms and hands of the body belong to the upper extremities. This means that you will primarily be using "fire and metal" within the beginning of any defend/attack scenario.
I am hoping this information will help you to understand how the Kyusho Cycle of Destruction works. This cycle is just part of a much larger understanding of the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu.
