Well here is goes! Today I am going to talk about 5 Deadly Pressure Points on the body. I am going to exclude ST-09 & 10 as I have discusses these are several difference occasions. I get asked a lot this question "can pressure points kill someone?" So let's get down to it!
Never play with the pressure points I discuss here today. And always speak with a qualified Kyusho Jitsu teacher before you ever do knockouts or other high risk techniques. To do so without proper instruction is Gross Negligence.
Deadly Pressure Point LV-14
This is a very important pressure point because it can have many different dangerous effects. A solid strike on the left side of the body can cause the Heart to stop and the Lungs to collapse.
Vision issues or a knockout can occur from a medium strike. Serious Liver damage can occur instantly on a strike to the right side and continue into the future if untreated. You can read more about Pressure Point LV-14 here.
Deadly Pressure Point GB-25
This is one of the reason why Kidney punches are outlawed in Boxing and other sports. Sticking a knife into GB-25, metal to wood will result in death without even a scream. This pressure point, like all listed here are Dim Mak Pressure Points. Read more about Pressure Point GB-25 here.
Deadly Pressure Point SP-12
Located superior to the lateral end of the inguinal groove, on the lateral side of the femoral artery, at the level of the upper border of the symphysis pubis, 3.5 cun lateral to Conception Vessel 2 (CV-02).
Striking this pressure point can cause immediate and severe damage to the femoral artery. The strike can cause damage to the femur at the hip, as well as damage to the hip itself. Damage to the femoral nerve can also paralyze the leg. NEVER use this pressure point as a demonstration point! Liver 12 (LV-12) is also located in the same space. Now I have not written an article on SP-12 however it is discussed in my book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.
This is a VERY dangerous pressure point!
Deadly Pressure Point - TW-18
This is a very dangerous strike as the brain is shocked or in other words an electrical storm in the brain. A concussion is very likely from this strike, even with a medium hit. And a hard strike can cause death. A neurological knock out will occur with a medium strike.
Deadly Pressure Point SI-16
A lighter strike can cause Heart issues in anyone with a disposition to Heart problems. Sometimes this pressure point is used in knockout demonstrations, but this is fool-hearty as death can result.Read more about Pressure Point SI-16.
Save this pressure point for life and death situations!
Deadly Pressure Point BL-15
This pressure point is the Associated Alarm Point for the heart. Associated Alarm Points, all of the them are very dangerous as they relate directly to the neurological aspect of the organ involved.
BL-15 is located 1.5 cun lateral to the lower end of the 5th thoracic vertebra.
A strike to this pressure point can stop the Heart as you will be affecting the actual neurological wiring to the Heart.
The nerves for the Heart exit the spine at this location. This is also a resuscitation pressure point in case of Heart failure. Striking correctly to BL-15 on the right side of the body on a person whose Heart has stopped has the same effect as jump starting the Heart electrically.
Warning: Do NOT play with this pressure point!
