    Pressure points

    Sorry if this has already been done.

    Do you have any use for pressure points? I am not talking of "Dim Mak", clearly. More like dealing pain to get out of a bad position, or quick "stun" shots to open points (solar plexus).
    With pressure points I do not mean the tiny acupuncture points, but just any confy target that you can strike and or manipulate realistically for more damange and/or pain than the average.

    Pressure points are just as good and just as bad as anything else.
    EVERY techniques should be applied to an anatomicaly weak area, but it a joint, or a pressure point.

    Well sure Orion, there's hitting a guy, and then there's hitting a guy where it hurts.

    Also, while pressure point attacks often cause pain, the reason for attacking them is sometimes something like inducing a muscle cramp, restricting blood flow to weaken a limb, provoking an involuntary motor response, or stunning major nerves, which can make the rest of your job easier. Pain alone is often of little use. To even have a chance at getting some of these effects however, there are much more important things to concentrate on first.

    Sure, a nice quick poke'n'push to just under the jawline (near the back), where the angle part of it is, will make the guy who has you in a headlock, yell like a sissy and let go pretty fast. After him releasing you, sending a wave of punches in his direction is optional.
