The old time martial arts masters called them nerve strikes, and this is really a very accurate way of putting things. A pressure point refers to a location of a nerve on the body used in acupuncture to heal. We on the other hand use it to cause pain, disable an limb or cause unconsciousness. Let’s examine this further.
For some reason martial artists can be very resistant to learning, especially if it is not within their current style. But that is not why I write this or my problem. An example would be you can cause a knockout by kicking “correctly” at a pressure point on the leg called Spleen 11. Now this nerve, which protects the integrity of the femur and more importantly the femoral artery. If this artery were to rupture, death is certain. This is why when someone breaks or even fractures this bone they “pass-out”. There is nothing mystical, it is simply knowledge of the human body and it’s workings.
In order to learn we must open our mind to possibilities. I am hoping this blog and the products we sell will help you to expand your knowledge of yourself and the art you study. Even as a school owner, the learning never stops.
