Pressure Point Basics – Understanding Kyusho Jitsu


Now first I am going categorically state, Kyusho Jitsu in NOT a martial art. Kyusho Jitsu is a system, or a science that is applied to any martial art to make it more effective.

That being done lets discuss some basics. What is a pressure points? This is a place in the body where a nerve ends, branches off like in a “Y” formation, or where nerves cross.  It is not the nerve itself.

What is the size of a pressure point? A pressure points actual size is that of the head of a pen, however the area of activation is about the size of a loony, or silver dollar.

What kinds of point are there? Points come in 3 classification for attack. They are either “touch points” “rub points” or “hit points.” A touch point will not respond to a hit, however some points are of more than one type.

How long will a pressure point stay active? After stimulation a pressure point can stay active for up to 20 minutes.

How should you strike a point? A pressure point needs to be attacked at a 45 degree angle using 2-Way Action or complex motion.
