What is a Pressure Point?

Pressure points are the nerves that run all over our body, So we can say that a pressure point is a strike point on top of a nerve that is most vulnerable to attack on the body. There are hundreds of Pressure Points that run all over the body but realistically you can not use all of them in a self defence scenario some are a little more difficult to get to due to where they are located on the body. A good working knowledge of the main 20 points that you can strike quickly and with maximum force in any given self defence situation will be sufficient, we should aim to do this on a subconscious level without the need for a thought process this way your response will be instantaneous to any threat and this will enable you to use pressure points effectively for self preservation.
Pressure points for self-defence is using the nerves to our advantage, in simple terms it’s the body’s way of monitoring the body’s condition, pain, hot, cold or if an organ is in good condition. With the use of pressure points we can stimulate the nerves to utilize these messages sent to the brain to get the desired response e.g. A lowering of the blood pressure, causing pain, nerve dysfunctions, paralyzing, dizziness, knock outs and even death.
Please remember that certain nerves are long and come closer to the surface of the skin at certain places of the body and therefore more exposed for hitting. These are the nerves we will be striking and concentrating on for you to get the best response for optimal effect. To make the nerves respond they have to be stretched and given the correct energy stimuli to make the nerve strikes effective. These nerve strikes can be applied to any art, Karate, MMA, Jujitsu, Boxing, Kung Fu, Krav Maga etc.
The DVDs to start with are; Pressure Point Simplified,Nerve Strikes for Combat, Pressure Point Combinations
These above 3 DVDS are contained in the box set and are very good value, Then the next one to get would be;
Nerve Dysfunctions
After this I recommend the Panuntukan 1 to 6 DVDS series as this shows punching, jabs, crosses, uppercuts, hooks, elbow strikes, Knees, head butts, grapples, throws, traps etc. You would apply all the pressure points in these above topics. The methods explained can be applied to any martial art or self defence system, including MMA, Boxing, Karate, Jujitsu, Kung Fu, Krav Maga and or any empty hand applications.
We believe that this knowledge should be available for people who want to progress in their martial arts and this will serve as an aid to enhance your knowledge in pressure points/nerve fighting method, requiring less strength and power to incapacitate an attacker. Please don’t misuse this knowledge contained in the DVDS and always respect your training partners.
Warning the information on the DVDS are very dangerous take care when practicing!!!
