But sometimes it requires Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions to get the job done properly and with the greatest affect.
Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions - Heart 8
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.
