Actually when you click to see the points it bring up the first point (spleen 1 or YinBai).

Spleen 1 can be used to help stop bleeding but probably not the kind of bleeding you are thinking of. It can be used for blood in stools, fever with nosebleed, and uterine bleeding.

If you are just starting in Kyusho/Dim Mak then in regards to ELEMENTS. You have FIRE, METAL, EARTH, WATER, WOOD these are not viewed in a western sense were you can touch and hold them. They are a power or phase of power in targeting concepts. It will help when looking at the effects of the Destructive, Demurial, constructive cycles on techniques and targeting according to the laws/rules found in them.

The simplest and probably the most painfull way to disable a persons arm is to do damage to the brachial nerves, that are on the inside of the arm. another effective way is to avoid the strike and hit the arm pit because of the brachial nerve plexus and lymph nodes in that area the arm will stop functioning. dont over complicate things with elements and such simply talk to a doctor or neurologist. dont worry about angles and such as you dont have time to think about that stuff put more time in proper hand formation a Nukite or fingertip strike or one knuckle strike is easiest to use as these transfer alot of force to the target. the brachial artery is fairly unprotected and a strike along any point can cause the limb to stop working. This is just one of many ways to disable the arm, depending of the amount of force you can ethier disable or permenatly damage the arm.

It does not matter if you choose to follow the Chinese medical terms or western you are hitting the same spots, and getting the same effect. Some of us use the chinese terms because it gives understanding to how the founders of our styles viewed the body and determined where and how to hit. I use fists and elbows, not one knuckle or finger tip srtikes. The angle of the strike is easy to achieve with body positioning and grappleing

True you can use those body weapons. But its simpler to say attack brachial artery on inside of arm then say hit point so in so or setup point here. Fists and elbows are good weapons but because of their size some small areas are much harder to hit. I've found in my practice is much more effective to hit the armpit or solar plexus with fingertips then fist or elbow techniques. But I'm sure if you could get those areas it would probably do more damage.

I was about to say the same thing but it seems as though you beat me to it haha. I must agree, if somebody posts a question about "dim mak" or pressure points, i think it would be safe to assume that the reason he/she posted the topic in the first place is because they have no idea what dim mak is all about. It looks to me like 'practioners' posting specific meridian points w/ their respective reference number are only helping other practioners that actually know what theyre talking about. I understand that it would be pretty hard to explain to them where that point is, which is why im sticking to the "Learn-from-an-instructor-because-even-though-you-knew-where-to-strike-,-if-you-dont-have-proper-technique-its-not-going-to-help-you-one-bit" approach. If anything, id think that if they found out where to strike, theyd go into the 'streets' thinking they have an upper hand, when in fact, you are sending them to their doom on false pretenses that their new found information is all they need to succeed.
