I'd say three could knock you out.

Poke the eyes, kick the balls, chop to back of neck.

Show me the man that isn't down after that, and I'll show you someone that's not a man ^_^

On a serious note however, what is the difference between a vital point and a pressure point? Most of the time, if I'm aiming for a target, it would be like the side of the elbow, middle of the bicep, middle of the thigh, the points that make that limb hard to use for a while. Which ones are these?

Yep, that ought to do it. But seriously, three is a guideline and not a rule. Not just any three will do. Hell, you could sixteen and not to anything or just one and get hit paydirt.

Most of these are located near actupuncture points. These are generally used for limb destruction and to destroy balance. There are ways to make them work better. Take the one on the outside of the mid-thigh fir example. To specifically locate it stand straight and allow the hands to hang at your sides. The point is located at the tip of the middle-finger. It needs to be struck straight in towards the other side of the leg. To make this point more 'active' slap the uke's hand somewhere behind the index-knuckle and the wrist. Now strike the point on the mid-thigh.

Have fun!

sort of going along the lines of what pess said the best pressure points i've ever used in contact are the solar plexus and the throat.

a good hit to the solar plexus (the area under the ribs where they come to an upside down v shape) interferes with the diaphagram and results in instant severe winding and if done well enough can force you're opponent to vomit.

a punch to the throat heavily restricts breathing thus stops the opponent fighting. the throat is a harder target because its obviously easier to protect.

either way they're not getting up and its a bit simpler than learning complex slapping/finger movements.

oh and the person who says the chop to the base of the neck doesn't work is wrong, i've seen it done by my old karate sensei to one of the more senior and willing students.

Those are vital areas not pressure points, though they do contain pressure points.
