When it come to self defense the arms are critical. Often times people will think only of the head and perhaps doing a knockout. However the arms are always the first part of the attacker to present themselves. This makes Pressure Point LI-10 [Large Intestine 10] of utmost importance. So let us discover this pressure point gem!
"One of the most popular and pressure points to access. Pressure Point LI-10 is located 2 cun below LI-11 on the radial aspect of the radius, in the extensor carpi radialis brevis and longus muscles. Located on the Large Intestine Meridian.
This pressure point can have a huge effect on the body. A strike straight down and through will paralyze the arm, and in some cases can potentially stop the Heart.
Striking upward causes a shock wave to rise up the arm into the upper body. It will cause a knock out if struck hard enough. When used with ST-09 it has the potential for a deathblow!
This pressure point will affect the entire Large Intestine Meridian, especially around the arm, neck and face.
Hence the reason that ST-09 works really well with this pressure point.
Again, when struck slightly upwards, the lower body will lose Chi and cause nausea.
I have personally seen instances of diarrhea that can last for many days if untreated."
This is a very useful pressure point when it comes to hands on self defense. Pressure Point LI-10 also has its healing aspect when it comes to Lung Resuscitation also!
