Pressure Points and Throws. What is the Secret to Throws?

* Pressure Points and Throws

Pressure Points and Throws. Kyusho and the Nage. How do you use pressure points to get a throw? Let's get into this now.

When people think of pressure points they usually think of knockouts. And that is cool, nothing wrong with that idea. 

However there is much more. There is almost no limit to the different effect that can happen to the body with pressure point manipulation or strikes. 

Pressure Point strikes and manipulations can cause predictable effects. This is very important also! And one of these is as example a strike to LI-10. When you strike LI-10 the front knee bends, and the head comes forward. What does this offer you? 

Pressure Points and Throws

Below is an older video that show LI-10 and its functions. Have a watch

Now in the video you can see my son's head move to the side. What does this mean? Once the head is no longer over the feet, balance is broken and a throw then becomes possible. All you need to do is continue the motion that has already begun.

And unlike many different types of throws this is not leverage based. This is motion based. And why would you not know this was going to happen and therefore follow through?

There is also the option of striking as well. But there are times when a throw is far more advantages. Doing a throw also allows for escape.  Being a Hapkido stylist as my first root art I am very into the idea of throwing. However when you add natural laws of motion, together with pressure points you get an amazing result. 

In Conclusion - Pressure Points and Throws

Pressure Points and Throws CONCLUSION

Throws should be a natural part of any martial art. They should never need to be forced.

And understanding how different pressure point act when stimulated is important.

Another example like the on above is LU-05. This pressure point behaves in a similar manner.  I have an eBook called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy that breaks down the functions of each pressure point on the body. This is a great study resource. 

This blog is an incredible resource for all things Kyusho Jitsu. It has an excellent search function too. I hope you use this FREE resource for your study. There is nothing else like it on the internet.
