      Hiting a soft area on the body is going to produce more results than looking for this point or that point. Enough said.

            Text only hand-drawn physical location of the point, their use without any explanation or point of a strike or use of weapons did not explain what the impact of the strike, I know this because I have seen a copy of the boar library the text.

              And it doesn't seem off topic. You related it to the subject at hand quite well I thought.

              The judo chop and stomp done 100% pure form Applegate style combatives would just be a heel stomp to the top of the foot.

              The shin scrap just goes real well in conjunction with the elbow clipping the inner arm. It feel real natural if you give it a few goes.

              Stomping the head or neck of a downed opponent uses virtually the same technique on a complete different target. I'm not above stomping hands or fingers of a rising opponent either but then I'm just mean like that... Pressure points and kubotons make a nice match too.

              Fun fun...

                True. If you can stomp his hands might as well aim for the head while it's down there.

                Pressure points are ok but if I'm using a kubaton, I'd rather go for something that attacks skeletal function, it's much more reliable.

                    I've always liked the saying that anything is a pressure point if you hit it hard enough. That being said, a rudimentary knowledge of anatomy can help you IF the targets present themselves.

But some people in my organization actually believe this, and yes it is annoying and fantastical. But if you got no experience from pressure points it is most likely because the people doing them to you were performing them incorrectly.

                      Consider this: the number of skeptics who go to Dillman seminars and are impressed outweigh the number of one's who aren't impressed. So what could be some factors causing this. It does not seem possible to me that Dillman could somehow be manipulating intelligent people who wish to prove him wrong into believing in his system. And yet he does this. Whereas on the other hand it is very believable that when he or one of his students fails to demonstrate a technique on a skeptic, the skeptic runs with it.

                      If you think about it, how much evidence against Dillman do we really have. I only ever hear the same things about the National Geographic special and that reporter girl. That and a handful of individuals who say they were unimpressed at Dillman seminars. Compared to the number of people convinced by him, I would have to say that there is certainly something worth looking into.

                        Dillman is nuts!

                        RE. pressure points.

                        I think they work best when ina grapple and you find the oppertunity. My striking is nowhere near acurate enough to diliberatly target them.

                          RE. pressure points.

                          I think they work best when ina grapple and you find the opportunity. My striking is nowhere near accurate enough to deliberately target them.

                          The misconception that you aim for pressure points is a common one. The points are actually already in spots you would normally target anyway. The temple the throat, just below the elbows, on the inside of the arms and legs. On the outside too.

                          Pressure points are like bonuses, you attack and if you catch one great, but don't count 100% it's going to hit one. If you are only relying on the points and not your strikes as well you might be in a pickle there.

                          Also you have to depress the skin something like 1/4 inch to actually effect the points, so half ass punches and "touching" aint gonna cut it.

                          If you are going to strike you should really be focused on direction of impact, how can I disrupt skeletal function, root, and can I direct the person into a less advantageous position with my strikes.

                          Since grappling leaves little room for striking getting enough force to effect a pressure point while grabbing and rolling isn't a high percentage move.
