What are Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points? How do they work, and where do they fit into the study of the science of pressure point self defense?
First there are 3 different types of Alarm Points. These are very important healing points in Chinese Medicine that have been reverse engineered for Kyusho Jitsu. The types are as follows.
These are all very different and each have a different purpose and effect on the body.
First we will look at Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points, which are the FRONT Alarm Points in the body.
There is an Alarm Point for each organ on the body. These pressure points have a special and direct relationship with the organ they represent/govern. Attacking an Alarm Point can in theory affect the "health" of the organ. Especially if there are health issues for the person in question.
I have seen on several occasions when LU-01 [Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Point for Lung] is struck correctly that breathing issues develop rather quickly. Yin organs and meridians seem to be more susceptible to this than their Yang counterparts.
However the effect on the meridians is what we are look for more so than organ affect. Alarm Point strikes tend to weaken the body quickly making them very useful in obtaining and knockout quickly. Each Alarm Points has a different angle and direction for activation. And they have what is almost an exponential effect depending on the point.
Next we have Associated Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points. These are located on the back, on the BLADDER meridian on the right side of the body ONLY. These points are far more dangerous, and also harder to reach.
Associated Alarm Points have a direct relationship to the neurological aspect of the organ in question. A proper strike can shut down the nervous system to the organ and cause failure. These pressure points while on the Bladder Meridian are marked by their location on the spinal column.
Special Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points are very different in function. Each has a specific purpose, not related to an organ. As an example PC-06 which is a Special Alarm Point causes a weakness in the chest area. Therefore making the area most susceptible to strikes. But I am just scratching the surface here.
Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points are an untold principle of Kyusho Jitsu. In my eBook the 15 Principles Plus One of Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points are the "plus one."
The front of the body Alarm Points are typically taught after 1st Dan Black Belt once all the first 5 principles are well understood. Associated Alarm Points come at 3rd Dan Black Belt once a decent grasp of the front points are understood.
Special Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points typically are master level however I tend to teach them when I think the study is ready.
How important are Alarm Points? Pretty much everything I do is based off these now. It takes time and work to really get a solid grasp on them!
