Painful Chest Pressure Points. What are the Top 3?

* 3 Painful Chest Pressure Points

Painful Chest Pressure Points: Striking the chest correctly can be devastating.

So today I am going to talk about 3 Painful Chest Pressure Points that are easy to access and will yield great results in a self defense situation.

There are many more than 3, but that is enough to get your feet wet.

The first place I must begin in talking about Painful Chest Pressure Points is that they must be struck in a certain manner. 

There is an correct angle and direction for each pressure point, which I will discuss, but also you need 2 Way Action.

Painful Chest Pressure Points# 1 Pressure Point LV-14

Painful Chest Pressure Points

This is a highly dangerous and painful pressure point that is often times forgotten. LV-14 is located on the mamillary line, 2 ribs below the nipple, in the 6th intercostal space.

This point is 6 cun above the navel & 3.5 cun lateral to GV-14, near the medial end of the 6th intercostal space.

This is a very important pressure point because it can have many different dangerous effects. A solid strike on the left side can cause the heart to stop.

The lungs can also collapse from a strong hit.

A knockout can also occur from a medium strike, as well as temporary vision issues. Not to mention serious liver damage occurring instantly and, in the future, if untreated. This pressure point is attacked by striking in and down with a chopping action.

LV-14 is also an Alarm Point which means it has a direct relationship with the organ itself Each organ on the body has 2 special points associated with them. These pressure points are not necessarily on the meridian associated with the organ either. These names of these special pressure points is Alarm Points and Associated Alarm Points.

Painful Chest Pressure Points #2 Pressure Point GB-24

Going from the top to the bottom of the chest area we now have GB-24. When your strike GB-24 you will also likely hit LV-13 too. So bonus! 

GB-24 is located on the upper abdomen, directly below the nipple, in the 7th intercostal space, 4 cun (finger widths) lateral to the anterior mid-line of the chest.

This area of the body, the rib cage is monitored and protected by the intercostal nerves.

Painful Chest Pressure Points

The intercostal nerves are part of the somatic nervous system, and arise from the anterior "rami" of the thoracic spinal nerves from "T1" to "T11." This is very important information in the study of Alarm Points and Associated Alarm Points. Information on Alarm and Associated Alarm Points are covered in the eBook The 15 Principles Plus One of Kyusho Jitsu.

This information above is the reason that GB-24 is a knockout pressure point. Attack in and down for best result. Chopping action too as this ia a wood pressure point.

Painful Chest Pressure Points #3 Pressure Point SP-21

I have talked about this pressure point many times. And when it comes to the most painful chest pressure points this one wins hands down. And it is also arguably the most dangerous pressure point on the body.

As you can see from the diagram below SP-21 is located on the ribs, about center of the bicep with the arms hanging. The exact location is on the lateral aspect of the chest, on the mid-axillary line, in the 6th intercostal space. An intercostal space is the "meat" between the ribs which is a hotbed for nerves!

Pressure Point Spleen 21

Why is this? These nerves help to protect the integrity of the rib cage. Now the obvious purpose of the ribs is to protect the lungs and subsequently the heart from damage. In this are also are the MAJOR arteries of the heart. Pressure Point Spleen 21 and its location are at one of the weakest place in the rib cage.

Also because the heart is located slightly to the left of center of the body. This also includes the major arteries. Therefore a strike to this area has a greater potential for serious damages. But this applies to both points. It is best to avoid them unless a life of death situation exists.

The correct angle and direction is straight across to the other side of the body. A penetrating action is best.

Now you can see how the Painful Chest Pressure Points work!

Painful Chest Pressure Points in Conclusion

Painful Chest Pressure Points CONCLUSION

The ribs serve a very important function! They protect the heart and the lungs.

And because of this critical function any strikes to the area, done correct will yield a massive result.

Rib breakage can result in death due to a puncture lung!

So I am sure you can see why this is all such a effective area of the body to train in striking. If you have any questions feel free to comment below!
