An auto mechanic knows that for every job there is a tool. Sometimes these are very specialized tools, but they do exist. Just like for every pressure point there is a "way" to strike them. But sometimes it requires Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions to get the job done properly and with the greatest affect.
You may already be familiar with the power of the pressure point HT-08. This spot on the body releases more energy than any other. Is there a way to take advantage of this? To be able to use this in a self defense situation to get a more predictable, more devastating result?
Yes there most certainly is!
In every martial art system there are the convention methods of attack. There is the punch, which is the most common and the least effective. Then there is the knife hand, and ridge hand which are much better than the punch. Finally there is the palm, which of the 3 is the most devastating. But it is the most challenging to use as it does not fit every situation. So everyone goes back to the punch.
The funny thing about the punch is that most martial artist i have seen do not understand the mechanics of a punch, and use a sport version. This is designed to be safer. Some will condition their hands to make the weapon more powerful This is fine if done properly. But most people are not familiar with the proper way. This causes damage and pain later in life.
There are reason for each different "tool" being either more or less effective. A fist, especially if it is held tightly, with the thumb too far inward conceals energy.
A knife hand has a better angular effect, and the edge focuses the power better.
The palm is best because it can use the energy at HT-08 to enhance the effect.
So most people will then turn to elbows, knees and feet as additional weapons. The issues is these are higher risk or limited range.
There are solutions to this issue. However they do require more study and more training! These are the Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions that I call the 6 Energy Hands.
The 6 Energy Hands are specific hand positions, that release energy and have a specific function against certain pressure points.
These fit the occasion like a hand in a glove!
In October 2018 I released an all new video dedicated to teaching these very important 6 hand positions.These will not only enhance you Kyusho Jitsu study but also help to make everything in the martial arts you do more effective! Follow the link below to learn more today!
Understanding the best methods to attack different areas of the body, and which tools are the most effective is critical to your training.
These ideas are pretty straight forward and if you have not used them the results will shock you!
Do you have a favorite striking method? Tell me about them here!
They say knowledge is power, however this is only a "half truth." Applied knowledge is power! Now as an example I know that a "grasping fist" is a devastating weapon. But....If I know the exact best locations to strike, and exactly how to strike them I get a better result! Therefore "applied" knowledge is real power!
