Today as my series on different pressure points for use in self defense I continue with Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24.GB-24 is an extremely important pressure point on the body because it has a "special" function. Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24 is also an Alarm Point. This is critical information.
GB24 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. 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.
Now to go into depth on Alarm Points and their uses in one article is not possible. Coming in the future I will be dedicating a eBook to the subject as I have never completely covered it from advanced to master levels. I have gone into detail before, but nothing like I will be in the future.
Pressure Point Gall Bladder 24 is the Alarm Point for the Gall Bladder [Organ and Meridian] itself. What this means is that when you strike this pressure point the Gall Bladder Meridian is activated bilaterally on the body at a high level. Triple Warmer is also activated bilaterally.
In these articles on the different pressure points on the body I have not gone into the 5 elements to any extent. However this is something I am assuming knowledge in. But I have something for you while we are on the topic.
Here is a link to a FREE copy of my Cycle of Destruction Video. This will open in a new window so you can download while reading.
You can also get a FREE copy of the meridian charts to the left here.
Because of how important the rib cage is, and that it is the only protection for the heart and lungs GB-24 is a "body knockout" pressure point. It lies in an area of weakness in the chest and so the nerves react to a solid strike very violently. A chop here in a self defense situation can cause unconsciousness, a break or crack in the ribs and also a possible dislocation of a rib. Sever damage to the ribs can cause a lung puncture and result in death.
Below is a list of the posts on the Pressure Points of the Body I have done to date.
