Hello, my name is Alex... if you haven't guessed already. I understand that I can't skip things or take shortcuts, but I find pressure points fascinating and I want to know more about them. I also understand that I can't expect true self defense from them; while they are decent enough techniques in themselves, they don't always work depending on how exposed a certain pressure point is to you. But this is beside the point. I want to learn as much as I can about pressure points, and buying books at the store or online, isn't always an option. It would mean a lot if anyone could give me as much information about pressure points as they are willing. Thx.

OH!!!, and if possible, can someone tell me the history of pressure points? Such as the origins, it's original name... etc. Yes, I am doing other research as well, but at the moment, I am sure I am not the only one who would like to know and my researching skills are a bit dull. Again, Thx.

I am not one to ask about pressure points. MY views are basically outdated as I feel that learning them is a compliment to what you do, and you need a strong basic background before learning about pressure points. My Sensei won't teach them to you until you are a 4th degree Black Belt. He will however let you find information at Shodan. I don't teach them till Black Belt. Why? I have seen kyus spending too much time trying to find the points and not working basics. If you have strong basics, alot of times the pressure point is inherrent where you strike/block. I feel very strongly about basics, and then learn your pressure points. But that's not what you want to hear, so maybe this will help. Look up George Dillman on the internet. He is basically the guy who teaches to everyone the art of Kuysho Jutsu, or Tuite in the locking arts. There are others as well but Dillman has many books and tapes on the subject. Rick Moneymaker is another one who has several tapes on the subject. There other ways as well. talk to an accupuntureist, this is where I get my knowledge from, and shiatsu massage therapists. First you learn to heal, then you learn to hurt. I also have trained with a Chineese doctor who did Jujutsu and this was exceptionally helpful. remember, not everyone is affected by pressure points and there are people who have what was told to me 'recessed' points which makes them hard to find. Pressure points are a great accessory to what you do, but you need a strong base to apply them to.

Great reply Lou, I would echo what you have said. If you don't learn the basics first, you will not have the tools to work the tuite/kyusho applications.
