What is Kyusho Pressure Point Summation about? This comes from a question I was asked today as to whether I had heard of or new the term. Now this is not something I can recall Dr Steve Steward saying. But I could be wrong. And I am going to ask to find out.
However the term interests me. Kyusho Pressure Point Summation, I see a tie in with Quantum Kyusho Jitsu here. Therefore I am going to assign my own ideas and definition to it based on the actual meaning of the word, especially from a medical standpoint.
There is a definition of the term summation in neurological study. And this definition seems to be VERY applicable to the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu.
"The aggregation of a number of similar neural impulses or stimuli. The cumulative effect of a number of stimuli applied to a muscle, nerve, orreflex arc."
This is pretty cool! And I can see how we can apply this to Kyusho Jitsu! Let's get into this!
Kyusho Pressure Point Summation - Goal
What is the goal or goals when we look at a pressure point strike or manipulation? There are 3 potential goals or outcomes. They are as follows:
Kyusho Pressure Point Summation - Probability of Success
Now this is something I have been doing on a personal level for a long time. And it is honestly not for every student. It depends on how you wish to be challenged and how much. Some people just want to learn about effective pressure points and how to use them. Like in my video course the 10 Best Pressure Points for Self Defense.
And that is just fine. But others want to learn how to "map" the body, and figure out the most effect combinations of pressure points to get the desired results or goals listed above. Hence Kyusho Pressure Point Summation is for this type of student!
Kyusho becomes Science
Cross arm Finger Lock - Pain
In a cross arm finger lock the goal is pain and therefore control. So my right hand is to his right hand and I have the Large Intestine and Pericardium Fingers. 2 Way Action is applied. There is however for this example no "basing" of the Uki's arm taking place. Doing so make this an experiment more in body mechanics that pure Kyusho.
In respect to the idea of keep this article below 2000 plus words I am going to describe 2 scenarios in the video below.
One thing is for sure, I am going to be spending a lot of time in thought about this. I even feel a book coming on. I just need to decide the parameters of testing and creating benchmarks.
