Once again today I am continuing the series of different, very important pressure points on the body. And today we have Pressure Point Pericardium 6! This is one of my personal favorites. That is mostly because my root art is Hapkido and therefore a hands on grappling system.
PC-06 is located 2 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist, between the tendons of the palmaris longus and flexor carpi radialis muscles, in the flexor digitorum superficialis manus muscle. In it's deep position in the flexor digitorum sublimis muscle. Below is a closer look.
PC-06 is primarily a setup pressure point. While not the easiest pressure point to strike when you do it causes disorientation and a general weakness of the entire body. It also has an important usage as what I call a "Kyusho Special Alarm Point" as pressing it will cause a weakness in the chest area.
It is also a very important pressure point in Dim Mak and the healing arts. As an example of usage in a grab, if you press down on PC-06 and then strike GB-24 you are very likely going to get a knockout. This will depend on the force used in the GB-24 strike. If this does not cause a knockout the motion of the body from the strike will give you a clear shot at GB-20.
PC-06 is a pressure point you will want to study in more details and work into your self defense system!
You cannot image the power and influence this pressure point has until you use it. Plus it does not require a strike to get a result. Simply activating it with touch is sufficient!
