What is a Neurological Knockout? Pressure Point Knockouts 101


Pressure Points are the Equalizer!

What is a neurological knockout? Here is the definition for you.


Caused by a short circuit, overload, or imbalance in the central nervous system (involving both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems).

This can be using Kyusho Jitsu techniques. It may also be caused by extreme stress, emotions, shock, or extreme trauma to any area of the body (a broken or crushed limb for example). This kind of knockout can also be chemically induced (alcohol, toxins, allergies).

Now why is this so important? First I will say in Self Defense it it CRITICAL. Over the years of various sport activities like boxing, TKD style fighting and hockey I have had way too many concussions! One was a spin hook kick that fractured my skull above my left year.

But only once is about 5 did I lose consciousness, and it was not the skull fracture. It was boxing and I did not see the punch coming!


Caused by blunt trauma to the head resulting in bruising or damage to one or more areas of the brain as it collides with the inside of the skull. This can be caused by heavy impact to the skull such as a martial arts strike, a fall, car accident, etc…

One of the interesting things about concussion is that it does not always lead to unconsciousness, to trying to defend only using blunt force or trauma can get you into a world of trouble!

Hit a nerve bundle correctly and you WILL get  knockout!

This is why it is so critical in my view to have a SOLID pressure point  / kyusho jitsu education!
