Dangerous Neck Pressure Points. How to paralyze the human body?

Dangerous Neck Pressure Points

This one slipped my mind! It was not until I was doing some updates on articles at this blog did I realize I had not covered Dangerous Neck Pressure Points! I have talked about Pressure Points of the Chest, the Head, the arms, the legs and the back.

But not Dangerous Neck Pressure Points.

So today I will discuss these. Most of these have been covered in other articles, and I will link those articles also. But I know many of you readers like it when I groups like this.  So onward!

Dangerous Neck Pressure Points

Pressure Points on the Neck are great, and they are also very easy to access. The brain will protect the "throat" itself by dropping the chin. This reduces the chance of a throat strikes, but little to nothing to protect the main most Dangerous Neck Pressure Points! The brain will protect what I called "vital areas" but not pressure points.

Dangerous Neck Pressure Points - Pressure Point ST-09

The Pressure Point Stomach 5

This pressure point is arguably the most DEADLY on the human body. Located right over the carotid sinus. The carotid sinus is a Baroreceptor, whose purpose is to detect an increase in blood pressure. And then regulate or drop the pressure. 

When the brain detects an increase in blood pressure, the vagus nerve sends a signal to the vasomotor center and this initiates a Vasodilatation, and slowing of the Heart rate to lower the blood pressure to normal.

A strike here will cause an instant knockout.

 However because this is from a physical strike any damage to the area can cause death because the blood pressure never going back up. 

Anyone with a heart condition is in serious trouble if struck here.  Never use this pressure point for demonstration purposes.  Article on Pressure Point ST-09.

Dangerous Neck Pressure Points - Pressure Point LI-18

This is another extremely painful and dangerous pressure point. LI-18 is located on the lateral side of the neck, level with the tip of the Adam's apple, between the sternal head and the clavicular head of the sternocleidomastoids muscle.

Use care when striking this pressure point as not to strike ST-09 at same time;, if you do death is possible!  A hard strike can cause permanent damage to the Adams Apple”.

Large Intestine 18

Because of the potential for disaster I do not recommend this pressure point for demonstrations unless you have a lot of experience. Here is an article on Pressure Point LI-18. 

Dangerous Neck Pressure Points - Pressure Point TW-16

* Deadly Pressure Point TW-18

It was this pressure point, while I was writing on article on it, made me realize I had not done any work on Dangerous Neck Pressure Points. This is another devastating pressure point. TW-16 is located posterior and inferior to the mastoid process, on the posterior border of the sternocleidomastoideus, level with SI-17, and BL-10 at the hairline, in the posterior margin at the insertion of the sternocleidomastoid muscle.

This is one of the more dangerous pressure points on the body. This is a one-shot knockout pressure point and a hard-enough strike will cause death. A lesser strike results in a high emotional state, where all things seem very critical to the person. Paranoia is not uncommon.

Like other neck pressure points this one needs to be reserved for life and death situations not demonstrations. Here is a detailed article on Pressure Point TW-16.
