Knockout Pressure Points – Ko’s Made Easy

knock out pressure points made easy.

Knocking out people with pressure points is actually very easy.

All you have to do is "activate" the pressure point properly.

Oh... "is that all there is to it David?"


All you need to do is activate them properly.

Okay David Well how do I activate them properly?

Answer - That DEPENDS on the point.

By now you are probably beginning to see through the sarcasm.

Simple Truth is I could give you a laundry list of knockout pressure points.

but what does that really tell you?

In order to activate a pressure point and get a knockout you have two basic approaches.


A - Hit it Really Friggin Hard.

B - Just hit it right.

both scenarios assume...

A You know where the point is.

B. You have the capability to actually hit it during combat.

C.You can do it consistently and safely.


The Hit It Really Friggin Hard Approach - this is the approach most people take

the mind set of course goes - If I hit hard enough anything I hit becomes a pressure point,and of course this approach also assumes that the point your going after is actually accessible through a neurological receptor that monitors striking.

Lots of ifs but the last assumption of course is..

That you can actually hit hard enough to activate it.

This is what I call the Bluto Approach to pressure point work... just hit it hard and everything will be just fine.

For those of you who don't know "Bluto" was the consistent bad guy in all the old Pop Eye The Sailor Cartoons.

As you recall, he was big, strong, tough and not too very bright.

You get my point.

If you are going to Be a Bluto... you are probably in the wrong place.


Oh, By The Way Here Are 5 Knockout Pressure Points for you.

Knockout Pressure Point 1 =  Stomach 5

 Knockout Pressure Point 2 = Stomach 5

 Knockout Pressure Point 3 = Triple Warmer 17

 Knockout Pressure Point 4 = Gallbladder 20

 Knockout Pressure Point 5 = Triple Warmer 23


If you look at the vast majority of knockouts and the pressure points that cause them.

These are the Major Ones.

The good news if you are a Bluto,

You can just hit these really hard.

Unless of course you get the angle of activation wrong.


In which case, you have to be a Bluto because the guy you are hitting will get really pissed off... and you probably won't knock him out.

Oh, Wait...

You want to know... what the heck is a Stomach 5? 

Triple Warmer Who?

Light Touch Knockouts… Myth or Reality?

You know I have to laugh sometimes when I look at some the crap people put on the internet. Truly I am astounded by some of what I see.

Be That as it may.

today I would like to touch on (no pun intended) "light touch knockouts"...

I've been doing kyusho for a very long time in fact I have either been trained by or trained along side most of the great ones.

So... Is There Such Thing as a Light Touch knockout.

Yes and no, Yes I know you love how I always give you those truly "definative" answers don't you?

Yes, Light Touch knockouts do exist, but then you have to ask...

Light or heavy... By whose standards are measuring?

And are we measuring by the amount of force generated by the person or by how much the person being "touched" can take?

I can tell you one thing. I do not use the term light touch knockouts to describe what I do and what I teach, even though by some peoples standards : they are extremely "light touch"

I much prefer to use the term "Right Touch" as compared to light touch.


Because I (and a select few like me) know exactly how to generate a tremendous amount of "power" for lack of a better word without it looking like it could possibly be that strong or have that much amplitude.

Its this "sneaky" power that you can't really see on a video (unless you know exactly what to look for and were to look for it"

But Right Touch Also Takes into account the all important key concepts of Pressure Point - Angle, Direction and Manipulation.

With a good kyusho man, who as been properly trained (most haven't)
I know that is a very arrogant thing to say (some things just have to be said)

It doesn't make it any less true,

but at some point you have to start making distinctions between what I call "Academic Kyushojitsu" and "Combat Kyushojitsu"

Power generation is a very important part (or should be) any good kyusho man's curriculum and so should the drills and skills necessary to hit moving and evading targets so that you are better able to deliver the "Right Touch" at the right time.

I've said it before and I will say it again...

When all is said and done, a pressure point is just a target.

Do light touch knockouts exist? yes.

But then again... who are you asking?

Until next time,

Kick Butt and Take Names.
