The appropriate type of pressure (say, a well-swung ball-peen hammer) works wonders on pretty much any pressure point. The fact that it would also harm just about any other part of the physique is...um...not germane to the topic at hand.
He means is that the concept of trying to apply pressure to POINTS on the body of a RESISTING opponent is a recipe for disaster. I agree.
A resisting opponent is not going to let you poke them or hold still while you find the "sweet spot". While you are poking around on their body they will mash your head into meal.
That is in a completely different realm than actually striking, compressing, or otherwise traumatizing the neck/spine, the possible outcomes of which are obvious (unconsciousness, paralysis, death, etc).
So "pressure points"..no. Manipulating someone's blood pressure, yes, any blood choke, punch, or baseball bat could do that.
This looks like he pinches the carotid artery with his left hand and delivers a short knuckle strike to the back of the neck with his right:Gall bladder 20" in pressure point terminology. When attacking opposite quadrants of the head it is redundant with pressure points.
I have trained this extensively.
See what I did there?
