Hello. This is my first post. I was researching the GB20 and was intrested. Me and my cousin have been practicing all day on finding the GB20 point but we have failed. We saw pictures on Google and videos on YouTube but I can't tell how they are hitting it. I've looked at Gavin's GB20 point of the week but it isn't working. May anyone please tell me or send me a detailed picture or high quality video of where to strike the GB20 and how it is striked? Thanks.

I know my name is GB20 Master but I just liked the name because I want to become one.

what if you just target the back of the head when the opportunity presents itself instead of creating artificial tactics to get there? also, good luck hitting an area smaller than a postage stamp when the opponent is resisting.

forget about points, just work on hitting general areas harder.

With all the help you have locating the point, I'd guess that you probably have it. The greater probability is that you are not striking with good technique. How many years in martial arts do you have and what is your rank?

Next, what would you do if you actually HIT it? Suppose you got a KO for example. Who has coached you on your revival techniques or what would you do with a stage 3 KO which would mean an uncontrolled fall by a person in a complete black out?

I'd say get a teacher and work under supervision only for this point. If you want to work pressure points without supervision, use points for grappling strategies. Then you wouldn't end up with an injured training partner or a medical situation that you couldn't handle.

Now I have no clue who you are, age, skill level or rank. I'm making the opperating assumption that you are young and relatively inexperienced. If that is NOT the case, accept my apology as this may sound disrespectful when in reality, I am trying to be helpful.

Instead of GB 20, try using SP 11 to assist opening the guard. That would be much safer.

If you still want to hit on the head, try St 5 or Mental foramen. Both points have clear easy to find holes in the skull where they are located. Hit St 5 down and in LIGHTLY like on yourself first to see if you can feel the buzz. Mental foramen is hit down and across. Just hit lightly to see if you can get a buzz. Do not hit for a KO without a teacher. If you can't get the buzz on these easier to find points, then the issue is striking technique. Don't hit harder, hit better. It doesn't take much.

I give up. There is a cultural or generation gap. What does this symbol stand for?

did you mean to reply to me?

187 years and I'm a 36th dan...you?

I think it's irresponsible to advise everyone to "hit better, not harder". if you are talking to a guy 200+ lbs, then sure...but a 105lb woman or teen? they need to focus on learning what general areas and how to hit hard.

hit general areas very hard.


btw, the initial post question is likely a troll drive-by posting.

I wasn't talking to you Ed Sir. I was talking to GB 20 Master except to ask you what the icon meant. I know better than to challenge a senior member of the forum. This forum deals harshly with people who do less. I well know my place. I'll go stand in the corner now in a horse stance with a bo staff balanced across my thighs.

If GB 20 Master is a troll, then I waisted my time constructing a thoughtful reply and only annoyed you if you thought I was challenging you. I would not go there. It just sounded like an incredibly stupid thing to go whacking people on the neck without knowing what he was doing.

Thank you Matt J. I could just post that and nothing further need be said.

post #15981589 you replied to me, ma'am. If you look real close, you'll see the "Re:" on each post. that means who the person making the post has replied to.

can you now see why I thought you were relying to me? in person, we look at the person we are talking to - on a forum, we use the reply feature.

my appologies for not knowing you made a mistake.
