I was searching on Google today and saw the question about Kyusho Pressure Point Activation. So I decided it is a good time to address this one!
First I need to start here. What is a pressure point? A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve come to an end, where it branches off in a "Y." Also where is "X's" another nerve. The "old timers" called them nerve strikes. And I guess you can see why!
When a pressure point is activated the associated meridian to the point is also activated. This can last anywhere from a few minutes to 20 minutes. Depending on if the pressure point is hit correctly, and with enough FORCE.
The harder and cleaner you hit, the better the result! Note I said NOTHING about "light touch." I really don't know where people get the idea of "light touch." When working with a partner you don't hit them hard, because they won't be able to continue if you do!
Common sense right?
Every pressure point is hit or attacked at a 45 degree angle. I cannot in a single article address "direction" for every point because they are all in many ways different. However as an example LI-10 [Large Intestine 10] is hit "through" to the other side, at a 45 degree angle, using 2 Way Action.
2 Way Action, also referred to as complex motion is the reason, the discovery that make the science of pressure point self defense work! Without a solid understanding of 2 Way Action none of this will be effective. But the great news is that this motion is natural, and once internalized becomes like breathing.
Watch this video for exact details on 2 way Action!
The sound is a little bit "buzzy" due to lighting issues in the room. But it gets the point across well!
To be truly effective in the science of pressure point self defense you need a solid understanding of the different pressure points on the body. You do not need to know every pressure point, however learn as much as you can about the ones you would prefer to use in self defense.
I can help you with this! I have a new eBook called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy which breaks down every pressure point on the body! This is not a book of theories but a MUST HAVE reference guide!
Right now you can grab a "Sneak Peak" of this new work! Please note "sneak peak" this is far from a complete look into this eBook. But you will find the information in this "Sneak Peak" to be of great benefit!
