As we approach the end of this series on various pressure points of the body I encourage you to head over to our eBook website and grab a copy of Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy so that you have this kind of detailed information on every pressure point on the body. So today I conclude with Pressure Point Stomach 9-10, one of the most dangerous pressure points (2) on the body.
The primary focus of this article is on ST-09. This is because this is arguably the most dangerous of the 2 pressure points. It is however almost impossible to strike one without hitting the other. And they both react pretty much the same.
Pressure Point ST-09 is situated right over the carotid sinus. The carotid sinus is a Baroreceptor, whose purpose is to detect an increase in blood pressure. When it detects an increase, it sends a signal to the vasomotor center of the via the vagus nerve. This initiates a Vasodilatation, and slowing of the heart rate to lower the blood pressure to normal.
When either or both of these pressure points are struck there is an immediate, violent and dangerous response from the brain. The blood pressure will drop quickly causing a "vascular faint" or knockout. This can be accomplished with a low to medium strike.
A harder strike can cause serious damage to the nervous and arterial systems of the area which will result in death. Pressure Points Stomach 9-10 are also Dim Mak points because an energy strike to this part of the system, both nervous and vascular, will cause enough "dysfunction" to result in death overtime.
ST-10 which is considered just as dangerous a pressure point as ST-09 is located at the anterior border of the Sternocleidomastoid Muscle midway between ST-09 and ST-11.
The dangers of these 2 Pressure Points CANNOT be overstated. NEVER strike these in training! They are only for life and death street situations.
