The five elemental theory makes knocking out, shutting an organ down, or even killing some one easier. Just hitting points wont do much. Knowing the points is essential. I've only been doing the martial arts for a few months and already know a few ways to kill some one with special points, and have come up with 1 ok boonkies using the 5 elemental theory that could kill or knock out. The problem with just hitting point is that you could get the person to go out, but you would have to be more dead on in the hit and hit a hell of alot harder. This would make rub or touch points very hard to effect the person. If you really want to get into pressure points and learn alot Join the DKI. Dillman Karate International. He is the one who found all this stuff in such detail. He even trained the head master of the dragon institute mentioned earlier in the thread.
