I would think that it would be the Scrotum or the Eyes.

there are a few that i like, of course i don't grapple or any of that.. there is one under the ear.. hurts like hell.. then there is one, in betw the bone, near your chin and neck, and then another, under the nose.. not sure how these would work in a grappling situation, but they are very good for compliance situations..

The head. Hit it really hard. Specifically, the chin/jaw.

nope. can't be that simple John, you need some foreign terms, intangible concepts, ancient star charts, training with zero tolerance precision, and be a believing member of the IMA club in order to find the magic buttons.

I like the point, I believe it is a Large Intestine point, on the lower arm, close to the elbow.
It's good to get at with a block. (I believe there are several points concentrated at that spot.)

A John BTW that was Dutch.

I like ST-5, the knockout button on the jaw; or ST-9 the carotid sinus in the neck area. No magic or mumbo jumbo, just hit it.

I am partial to both those spots as well. But theres also that nerve that runs the length of your leg on the inside. You can knifehand the point where the leg connects to the groin, knuckle strike inside the thigh, grind the inside of the knee (that one requires a back and forth rub to activate) and then the nerve runs all the way down the inside of the lower leg. I like to attack the inside of the knee with an elbow (really the ulna midway between the wrist and elbow) and run it all the way down to end up just above the knob on the ankle. Much pain all the way down.

Of course the one I've gotten most in sparring/live drills is the knee to the outside of the thigh right in between the quads and hams mid thigh. As soon as someone makes the mistake of turning that front foot in too much and getting sideways on me.... say hello to my little friend.

In my experience of Ninjitsu, it is the eyes, the groin,the sternum and just abbove the point where the collar bones join

St 5 is my all time favorite. I keep finding more ways and contexts to attack it.

Those are good vital points TwinDragonsNinja. We study ABOUT them, but we don't generally practice hitting them. We DO practice above where the collar bones join, but not the eyes or groin. Some people practice sternum. I consider it unsafe and I do not, at least not for striking applications. I use it for touch and rub only. Too dangerous for my liking in practice. If I were fighting for my life for real, I'll look for the eyes.

Last month, I accidentally got a corneal ULCER in sparring bare handed practice. I've had corneal abrasions before but this was my first ulcer. The eye was blind and painful for 2 days and full vision not returning for a month. I was seeing double edges around lights and while reading.

When you get this kind of eye injury, the pain is severe and it is very hard to fight. Additionally, what you can't control, even if you can fight through the pain, is the tearing. it is hard to see through that much tearing. In my case, I could not open the eye until I got to the emergency room and the doctor numbed it. I had to close the other eye too to stop my eyes from moving around. If one eye moves, the effected eye moves too and that movement hurts. I just hit the floor so that it would be obvious that I was in trouble and uke would stop.

I am very much aware that a deliberate eye strike would have been much more severe. I'd say that probably no strike is so effectively and totally disabling as the eye strike.

I now wear goggles for sparring.
