The Heart Meridian, one of the most under rated of the 12 Kyusho Jitsu meridians on the body, and Deadly Pressure Point HT-01 is perhaps the more ignored pressure point on the body because of its location. But I can tell you the results of a strike to HT-01 are a fight ender, with the potential of it being a lethal strike
Deadly Pressure Point HT-01 is located in the armpit, AKA the Axilla. The contents of the axilla include the axillary vein and artery, as well as the brachial plexus, lymph nodes and fat. The axilla is the space between the side of the thorax and the upper arm.
Pressure Point HT-01 is located In the center of the axilla, on the medial side of the axillary artery, at the lateral inferior margin of the pectorals major muscle and in it's deep position the point lies in the coracobrachialis muscle. The axillary nerve is also present at this location.
What happens if you strike Deadly Pressure Point HT-01? Well let's take a look at this. A strike to HT-01 on the left side of the body will stop the heart immediately. This is accomplished with a little as a "medium" strike. This is also possible on the right side of the body, but not probable.
A neurological pressure point knockout will also occur immediately on either side of the body. A light strike will cause intense local pain and disorientation from brain dysfunction. Speech impairment will result as well as a very unstable emotional state.
Great physical damage can also occur in the area such as dislocation or the arm at the shoulder, permanent nerve damage, and possible rupture of the Axillary Artery or vein.
As you can see this is another very dangerous pressure point and one that should never be played with.
Access is not as difficult as you might think This is especially true with a taller attacker or if a front choke is applied
