Thank you for the mention of "Taika" Oyata .
I first studied PP under one of OYATAS sr students in 1987 and had the pleasure and pain of meeting him many times. I currently study PP with Rick Moneymaker who speaks highly of him.

Well, I have virtually no knowledge of this, so I am curious to see what all the fuss is about!

Going back to your earlier post, you're going to have to break it down into words of two syllables or less! [IMG][/IMG]

"Try it take for example an arm meridian and strike three points along the same meridian in succession and see the effect" --Okay, where is/are(?) the the arm meridian(s)? Which points should I strike? Sorry! I did say that I really know nothing about kyusho! If you can describe what to do, I'd like to see what happens and report back! This may be old news to some people of course, sorry if it is!

get "pressure point karate made easy"...its an awesome book to introduce you to kyusho jutsu.
generally...yang meridians run (down) the outside of your body. and yin run (up) the inside. all points on a yang meridian are yang points..and vice versa. i.e..the outter arm is yang, the inner arm is yin...same with legs etc.
so weve devided the meridians (very basically) as yin or yang.
meridians are named after their corresponding organ and other words if you activate a point on the large intestine (LI) are in some way effecting that persons large intestine. im not sure what element corresponds to the LI meridian. actually it doesnt matter until you get deeper into it. which is when you would get into the cycle of destruction and the cycle of creation...water feeds wood...but water also puts out fire. so you would hit a water point...then a fire point...then a metal point (fire melts metal) by this time the opponent will probably be unconcious or very very dazed.
for as for specific points along a specific meridian.
try the lung meridian..point 8 (lu-8) is on the inside of the wrist (thumb side) where the nurse takes your pulse. say someone grabs your lapel, strike with a hooking blow with your (door knocker) knuckles in and toward the hurts and uke will more than likely let go of you lol generally its best to start with single points i think. this allows you to gradually add pressure point methods to what you are already doing.
another example, an armbar. instead of just applying pressure to the elbow in general, dig your knuckles into the point just above the elbow joint on the back of the arm (triple warmer 11) dig your knuckles in (rub, you can strike it with no effect...RUB it)and towards the elbow, remember also to grab the wrist because this actually activates wrist points, one of which is listed above. tw-11 is about an inch above the elbow joint (or so) on the back of the arm.
as for more points along the same meridian, that will come from someone other than myself, because you shouldnt practice kyusho unless there is a qualified instructor present, in case a revival is needed. but generally hitting single points is ok i think...what do you think mr travers? (take his advice over mine any day of the week) [IMG][/IMG]
hope that helped some....
