3 Types of Kyusho Knockouts. How does this really work?

3 Types of Kyusho Knockouts

When people think of the word "knockout" they tend to think only of concussive events. However there are 3 Types of Kyusho Knockouts, and I am saying 3 types because you may be very surprised as to why.

There is for some reason much controversy when it comes to pressure point, Kyusho Jitsu Neurological Knockouts. However when you take a look at the facts you will see very plainly how they work! 

Therefore lets take a moment break down the 3 Types of Kyusho Knockouts.

3 Types of Kyusho Knockouts - Types of Kyusho Knockouts #1

Pressure Point Knockouts

The first on the list is the concussion. Concussions are caused by blunt trauma to the head resulting in bruising or damage to one or more areas of the brain.

This happens as the brain collides with the inside of the skull.  

A concussion can be caused by heavy impact to the skull such as a martial arts strike, a fall, car accident, etc. However trauma does not always cause unconsciousness, but when it does it is a neurological event. Therefore these are very dangerous and can result in death.

Next on the list is the neurological knockout. A neurological knockout is caused by a short circuit, overload, or imbalance in the central nervous system. [involving both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.

Therefore this can be done using Kyusho Jitsu techniques

And these may also be caused by extreme stress, emotions, shock, or extreme trauma to any area of the body. [A broken bone or crushed limb for example]. 

Neurological knockouts also occur due to excessive use of drugs or alcohol. What is often called "fainting" is also a purely neurological event. As an example someone may faint at the sight of a needle. Since some do not believe that pressure point knockouts are real does this mean the person fainting is not real also?

Then we have cardio/respiratory. This type of knockout is caused by limiting the oxygen supply to the brain. Therefore this can be caused by choking or strangulation involving the air supply, the flow of blood or both. These can also be caused by impact to veins or arteries. Which cause a disruption in the flow of blood,  possibly dislodging plaque from the arterial walls causing clots.  

This is part of the Dim Mak systems of training.

This now bring me to the point, since all knockouts, not matter what the cause are neurological then why would you not be training in this science? 

Why POWER is not the ANSWER

There are many martial artists out there who believe in the idea of "punch or kick him hard in the head." There are so many issues with this one I cannot list them all! First the kind of power these people are talking about comes from anger

When you are angry you lose control of your motor skills. In fact anger and fear have the same result on your ability to fight back! 

You can miss very easy!

Plus you have no specific target in mind. Going for "impact" or in other words a concussion may not yield the results you are looking for! It takes time for the brain to swell and cause the "neurological" event of unconsciousness or a knockout.  I have had many concussions in my life and ONLY ONE caused me to lose consciousness and that was the first one. 

So rather than focus on that one time power hit why would you not strike at the "occipital nerve" located at GB-20, or the "vagus nerve" branch at ST-05? These strikes, done correctly WILL cause  Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts. Here is a LINK to understanding how power is created and apply in Kyusho. This is the Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle

Plus you are less likely to have "legal" issues as a result of your "fight" or "self defense" due to excess force or "overkill." 

Are Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts hard to learn?

The answer is NO they are not. But you have to do the study! This involves learning how these nerves work, how to properly activate them and then tying this back to your root art or self defense system. 

This type of knockout is someone anyone can do! But you do need to spend some time developing the skills!

3 Types of Kyusho Knockouts in Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

When it comes to the reasons for how knockouts occur, the fact is they always become a neurological event.

Therefore with this in mind, why would you not just default to the neurological every time? Have you ever done a neurological knockout on someone? Leave a comment and let me know!
