Is there a way in which you can disarm people like in that episode of the Simpsons where Homer becomes a bodyguard and touches people shoulders and they fall asleep (you know what I mean) or is it a load of rubbish.

There is a technique much like the one that Homer used. A sort of pinch. I don't know it myself but I've heard of it. Hope I helped.

No, it does not exist. It takes a lot more than just a pinch to knock someone out.

Once again, we can thank television for this false idea. Don't believe everything you watch on TV (or in the movies or in books for that matter).

Pressure points usually need to be striked with a reasonable amount of force and it's relatively unlikely, even then, to result in KO. Pressure points can, however, hurt incredibly and cause numbing, but require great precision and expertise to use with any real chance of being effective (this means you've got to be a reasonably expert striker/grappler already to use them anyway).

Oh come on, are we seriously answering this question?

Belnick, nice answer!

Silnet Ninja.....The Simpsons is a cartoon thus not a source for MA's techniques. To clear up any future confusion so is Dragonball Z, Micky Mouse and Pokemon. Although it has be recently discovered that Jerry from Tom and Jerry is the greatest Martial Artist who has ever lived. Apart from that Cartoon characters are make believe.....sorry to burst any bubbles!

This doesn't belong here-this should be on the ressure point forum.
I'm sorry, I was just imaging what you would look like with duct tape over your mouth

I know you shouldn't believe everything that you see on tv but I was just wondering.
Does that mean that everything that is on tv is fake and does not work, No it doesn't!

pressure point & chi/ki/qi. the 3 combinations work really well. who do i know, first hand experience. each techniques i learn i have to experienced first handed. trust me it hurt like hell. a friend of mine, well more like a mentor he show me the locations of the body, and the amount of pressure and the amount of chi to use. i didnt cover after 4 hours. and he didn't even punch or push he just tapped me. i know it sounds like some old chinese myth but it hurt like SH#T

there are some blade hand techniques in karate to the nevres at the base of the neck which knock poeple down to the floor and hurt like hell but i don't think KO is possible. there also techniques in other arts that involve pinching the muscle above the collar bone on each shoulder but thats more to stop someone attacking and bring them to there knees to be restrained easier.
Go seek the advise of a qualified instructor.
