Here is an application for your pressure point use that is really good in grappling and as an assist for tuite. Grabs! Grab something and squeeze and twist it. Here are some good ones to start with. H3 and LI 11. You can grab from the front of the biceps or if your hand is larger, from behind. It can numb the whole lower arm.

I like grabbing both St 9. Hit with an open ridge strike then grab both points digging in and behind the wind pipe and then pull or not depending on if you ever want to practice with that uke again.

I also like grabbing the neck tendon around the CSM muscle with fingers in St 9 and thumb in LI 18 (or the other way around depending on whether you are in front or behind your uke). Grab dig twist. Do you have favorites?

I was at a seminar recently and learned about the ST-9 and LI-18 combo. That one is nasty! I llike it a lot. It seems to be very effective.

Hi Everyone,

If you're in a grappling situation then another good point to grab is PC1, this technique will only work if your attacker has exposed his armpit by having his arm raised high, you can reach into the armpit area and get a really good grip on the pectorial muscle where PC1 is situated this can cause a great deal of pain and is very effective in close range fighting,

James.

I can't check that one out on myself but I'll find some one. It does remind me of another arm pit one I like against the pectoral muscle. Dig a thumb into Sp 20 and the opposing fingers into H1. I've just experimented and it appears Sp 18 and 19 will also work. Check it out and let me know. These Sp points are located in a vertical line below the collar bone half way between the nipple line (midclavicular line) and the anterior auxilary line (vertical line through the front of the arm pit. They fall in each of the intercostal spaces starting with Sp 20 in the 2nd intercostal space. That is the space below the 2nd rib.

Yes I am a bit weird I know. I try things out on myself to confirm the landmarks and to see if the technique is worth testing out on anyone else. Sometimes I do this in my car while driving. I was TAUGHT that you can hit the spinal accessory nerve at Anmion point between TW 17 and Gb 20 to wake yourself up if you are driving drowsy. Well, friend, I work nights and it is an occupational hazard. Unfortunately, I don't find hitting that point anywhere near as effective as stopping for donuts.

Here are some easy grabs and twists. Don't be shy now. Try some and post your results and any modifications or applications you found helpful.

Grab the middle of the eyebrow above and below and twist that. (HN-4)

Grab and twist between the upper lip and the nose (Gv 26 and LI 19) twist that.

From a handshake, dig the joint of the thumb into the web of uke's thumb against the bones at the base of the index finger (LI 4). Apply counter pressure from the rest of the handshake grip. If your leverage is good, you can bring someone to their knees with that.

If you are experienced, post some good grabs. If you are less experienced and having trouble figuring out where points are, ask or go to http://acuxo.com/meridianPictures.asp and look it up.

Ouch! I just tried both of those on myself, and they are quite painful. Seems like they would be difficult to maintain hold of on a resisting opponent, though.

Yes I guess I'd categorize those two as situational, but what isn't? If that is all you can reach and you are in a grappling situation, heck go for it. It might open up the opportunity that you need. Sometimes all you need is a moment to set up a predictable and exploitable response. Pressure point attacks often set up predictable exploitable responses. Is anyone else trying these or have their own little nasties to share?

Very good point, one that I hadn't considered.
