I've just been interested into pp from yesterday. I'm looking for videos on youtube for tutorials. Anyways, I have a few questions.

1) About how many pp are there in the human body?

2)Can we learn some here?

3)Where can I find some tutorials?

Well, that's it. If I need more help, I'll post here again.

Trust me, you need more help. At least you've made it to the right section though.

It is highly unlikely that you will find anyone here that will, with any credibility, recommend that you learn PP from youtube. Unless by PP you mean potty training, but even then, youtube as a resource has it's limits!

Take a break and READ this section (not just a few posts, but a LOT of them) and then start asking educated questions.
Don't let the white belt fool you. . .
I know even less than you might think.

You really, really need to find some real martial arts instruction. Between this and the knuckle strengthening post I've got this horrible feeling that what you're looking for is a quick fix to solve some sort of bullying problem. There's a good chance I'm wrong, but right now the best suggestion even if I am is "lurk more"

That's funny. I had the exact same thought days ago.

Seeing as how your name is "Neji", a character from a cartoon called "Naruto" who attacks peoples 64 "chakra points", I would probably assume your intent for learning Kyusho isn't of the best..

I could be wrong, that is.

The pressure points are acupuncture points for the most part. Not all of them are useful. Plus there are some other cool points that are obvious and vital like the groin, Adam's apple and eye. I don't know the number. Different teachers have different lists of favorites. When you get some instruction, your teacher will guide you.

To find a teacher in your area, try the big ones to see if there are schools in your area. California isn't specific enough for me to relate to. I know of Kyusho International instructors in California but that doesn't mean anything. Check the Kyusho International web site for certified teachers in your area. You can also check Dillman Karate international, Hogan karate, Dragon society, and so on. If you still can't find an instructor and your looking for on-line learning, you can get that from Kyusho International too. Contact info is on the web site. Hands on instruction is still best. Kyusho study is dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. Remember it is part of the MARTIAL arts.

First off, videos...yes, even youtube videos can show you somethign a thousand times, but you cannot ask them questions. You need an instructor. I have been doing PP for a very long time. Feel free to drop me a line privately.

1) About how many pp are there in the human body?
My teacher said 361 primary points, also eight extraordinary vessels, six of which are comprised of primary points and two are simple to learn.
2)Can we learn some here?
That depends. Ask you question and I will se what I can do for you. Most likely though, you will still need that instructor I told you about.

3)Where can I find some tutorials?
Try googling Geroge Dillman, Erle Montague, Kyusho International. Still, you need an instructor.
