Pressure points are neat, tap a guy on the right spot an bring him to his knees or cause a knockout. However, trying to hit 6 dime-sized “setup points” on an attacker under the real pressure of a real attack may be quite difficult.
Steering away from traditional kyusho points, this video looks at what pressure points actually are. Then it breaks down some of the best spots to attack – even if you are untrained and simply trying to defend yourself.
Let’s be clear, I don’t want to take anything away from the legitimate study of pressure points in self defense. However, like other mystical endeavors, there are charlatans out there. I’m not going to address them at this time, but merely give you useful information for self defense.
