Pressure Points


This article is all about pressure points which you can use to stop an attacker.


If you're looking for pressure points for massage or migraines you're seriously in the wrong place. This page is dedicated to pain pressure points in order to seriously f**k someone up!  


Without a doubt the use of pressure points can turn any situation in your favor. Even if the attacker is bigger and stronger than you, if you learn how to fight using a few simple pressure point moves it could save you from a severe beating or even losing your life.


 


 


Pressure Point Fighting


Pressure point fighting in it's earliest form comes from the ancient Japanese martial art form called kyusho-jutsu. It's thought to be as old as the early ninth century and is basically the art of inflicting severe pain with little effort.


There are lots of tales of famous pressure point moves such as the five finger death punch (aka Kill Bill move) and who can forget the famous Star Trek Vulcan nerve pinch from Dr Spock.


The truth is however that although these moves have been exaggerated by the movies, the concept is still valid and can be used by anyone who is willing to learn.


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 

Pressure Points Of The Body


Pressure points are generally areas which contain a bunch of soft tissue and nerves. The application of force onto a pressure point will cause an extreme reaction such as an involuntary movement, muscle contraction, unconsciousness or even death. The resulting effect will be dependent on a combination of the amount of force applied and the particular pressure point targeted.


The best pressure points to use in a fight are generally in the face and around the neck and groin. If you're short, or if you're attacker is very tall, the best points to target are the groin and knees.


Most self defense techniques tell you to go after the groin straight away, but in reality most attackers are ready for that so you need to have some more moves ready. Don't get me wrong, if the opportunity is there, a strike to the groin can be very effective, especially if you are already in a close quarters situation. However, a groin attack is not usually a viable first strike because it requires you to be in close contact.


A more viable move is a short direct kick to the knee which will put anyone down. If done well, this one move will virtually end any fight instantly. No one is going to try to keep fighting with a broken or dislocated knee.


 


 

Pressure Point Knockout


Here is one move explained in which you can knock someone out. Be warned that you should visit our home page for complete pictures and videos of these moves to get the full picture.


The easiest move to explain is the palm strike to the head. Once again this is a good first strike to use to win a fight before it's begun. The move basically requires you to strike directly to the bottom of the chin or nose at an upward angle with the butt of your palm.


For people who haven't been in a lot of fights using the palm strike is the best option as it is usually faster and more direct than a fist. When using this move be sure to use all of your strength as you'll want to make sure you stop the attacker with this one move.
