I hear this almost everyday! Pressure Points Are Fine Motor Skills are therefore cannot, and will not work under the stress of a street attack or fight. The statement is DEAD WRONG and simply propaganda. There is NO basis for fact unless you are talking about the untrained.
So let me explain why.
What are gross motor skills? They are "Gross motor skills involve movements of the large muscles of the arms, legs and torso."
What are fine motor skills? The definition is as follows. "Fine motor skills are the ability to make movements using the small muscles in our hands and wrists." These are basic definitions but will do for the purpose of the article.
These definitions being given striking at a pressure point is therefore considered to be a fine motor skill. However by this definition so is punching, slapping etc. And by this definition all martial arts training including striking with the forearms and knees is fine motor skills and therefore cannot me done.
The problem is they all can be done. Because gross or fine motor skills are irrelevant, and training is the only object, the only path to success. One of the more detailed fine motor skills is using a firearm. Yet these are used in high stress situations daily!
Watch this short video for a detailed explain on why Pressure Points Are Fine Motor Skills and this does not matter!
I am sure by now you can see that the martial arts world has been sold a "bill of goods" telling them that only gross motor skills work today!
They are trying to convince people that training is worthless and a waste of time. This is only true when society and the powers that be want to create a culture of sheep!
