I strongly suggest getting a copy of the book Gray’s Anatomy to help you with your study of pressure points / kyusho jitsu. This classic medical text will help you to associate the why and how of how things work!
One of the most controversial videos I ever had online was my doing a knockout on SP-11 on the leg. All the “experts” came out and said “this is fake” “that is impossible” etc, etc. Now for those people in this category, which I refer to as the “Dumbass Closet Intellectual” category I would expect nothing else. But for the student who is going to ask “how is this possible.” The above book with help immensely!
So how was this KO possible? Easy!
The Uki had grabbed me with 2 hands on my wrist. I took him out of my / his center, which cause the brain to compensate and try to recenter the arms to maintain control. Then I quick did a front kick, not much power to SP-11. Strong enough to move the leg, but not enough to break anything. The Uki passed out. Why?
The nerve at this point is designed to protect not only the bone, the femur, but also the femoral artery. If this bone breaks it can rupture the artery resulting in death. How did I learn this? From a EMS person who has had many patients with broken femurs pass out during transport for this very reason! This is medical fact not fiction! This is naturally an over simplification of the event. He had much more details for me. But this is all we need for our purposes.
Does this guarantee a KO by kicking SP-11. No it does not! I set this up well! But, because of where SP-11 is located, a HARD front kick can break the femur and get your pass out as well. But lets be honest, with a broken femur the fight is over with or without the person going unconscious.
To advance in Kyusho Jitsu you must do the work. There are no short cuts!
