As I continue with the series on important pressure points for self defense I am going to look at Pressure Point GB-25 [Gall Bladder]. Aside from being an excellent pressure point to end an attack GB-25 is also an Alarm Point. More on this below.
Below is a partial excerpt from my eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.
Pressure Point GB-25 is located on the lateral sides of the abdomen, on the lower border of the free end of the twelfth rib.
This is another very dangerous pressure point due to its proximity to the Kidneys. Striking this pressure point can have an even more profound effect on the Kidney's than actually striking the Kidney's themselves.
A medium strike can cause a knockout, and a more sever strike can cause Kidney failure. With a sever strike death can result due to Kidney failure. Pressure Point GB-25 will not produce an electrically shock response like some pressure points will.
The result is crippling pain and the inability to overcome the pain in a short time.
Alarm Points are one of the most important understanding in all of the science of pressure point self defense we call Kyusho Jitsu.
Now, Alarm Points of which there are 12 on the body relate directly to the organ they represent themselves.
So in other words a strike to pressure point GB-25 has a direct and negative affect on the functioning of the Kidneys themselves.
Striking an Alarm Point will also active the meridian they represent bilaterally at a high level.
So in this case the Kidney Meridian is activated bilaterally, as well as Triple warmer bilaterally. Plus Gall Bladder on the side of the strike.
This is assuming the attacker was not render unable to continue from the initial strike to GB-25.
The more you know about the Pressure Points you are striking the better effect you will have,
Knowledge when applied like in Kyusho Jitsu Study is very powerful!
GB-25 is an excellent pressure point for self defense purposes as it is very easy to access under a grappling situation. As an great example is a front choke,
Now as I have said on many different occasions the more you know about the pressure points you are looking to strike, things like the principles and specifications the better you will do on the street. Applied knowledge is so very powerful.
With that in mind I have a couple of excellent resources you will want to checkout. The first is my Kyusho Jitsu Reference eBook called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. In this book I breakdown every pressure point on the body. Including Alarm Points, Associated Alarm Points and Special Alarm Points. And I also include the Extraordinary Pressure Points.
The second suggestion is the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu that is designed to allow you to access information on all things Kyusho Jitsu right from your phone. The Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu is available for both IOS and Android phones. Learn more here.
