Brian,
since chi doesn't exist...
and pressure points don't exist...
Dim Mak doesn't exist... and if it did, couldn't possibly work...

Like the flat earth society, "if you can't explain it, it doesn't exist"...

Just keep in mind... "beyond the edges of the earth, there be dragons..."

funny.

actually I believe everything in the segment as 100% accurate, realistic and non-deceptive or biased in any way. I think everyone should spend their money and time seeking out proper dim mak training, starting as soon as possible.

Definately entertainment. It was on an entertainment show. No martial arts value.

Wow....that made me laugh so hard. Says it perfectly. I love how everyone thinks that a PP has to be something mystical or special. Do you train to hit an attacker’s “vital” areas? i.e. the soloplexes, the groin, the throat? Whether you call them by their PP names or not we all as martial artists try aim for certain spots because they hurt more than others. By the way, these are pressure points! Just makes me laugh when people go on big tirades about either the non-existence or the ineffectiveness of pressure points and then go train to hit their attacker in the soloplexes..oops I mean conception vessel 16...or wait do I mean the xiphoid process...or the "hit them here because it hurts and takes their breath away spot"...I Love it!

The things you mentioned - solar plexus (NOT soloplexes... please!!), groin and throat are VITAL points. IMO, different to PRESSURE points.

Eyrie, glad you picked up on that... it's kind of like the idea that "kyusho jitsu" is taught today as "pressure points". When I started, "kyusho jitsu" meant "methods of hitting the body". It included pressure points, vital points, and yes... the ever-popular Dim Mak training to hit those "places that don't exist".

I have an Aikido student who gets a 1-hour "specialty" lesson from me on Wednesdays before Aikido class. I told him we would cover a couple of pressure points "to be used to effect movement" in case his Ki went on strike during an attack.

I got an "OH $***" every time I touched him when I taught him my brand of kyusho... I didn't effect any knockouts, but he felt "encouraged to follow my lead" when I executed the techniques, with one of the Aikido black belts sitting on the sidelines doing a belly-laugh all the way through the class.

She laughed at him and at the end of class told him "you ought to know better than to let Dr. Pain give you a treatment"... (She's a physical therapist).

"Understanding comes depending on which end of the punch you happen to be standing on"...

... shame on me...
