The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Teen-Age Guy: C'mon, if we don't make it, all my friends will think I'm a fag.
Teen-Age Girl: No. Stop asking. I wanna wait.
Guy: But my balls hurt!
Girl: Really? Oh.... gee....
Guy: I'll just put it in for a sec.
Girl: Well, if its just for a sec, I guess.
Guy: Oh baby, I'll love you forever.
Girls seem pretty susceptible to pressure points to me...Jesus loves you. I think you're an asshole.

Sounds like a personal anecdote to me...
So, did saying "BUT MY BAWLZ HURT!" really work? Damn, I never thought to use that one. I always stuck with the good old, "Don't worry, for every one of mine, you'll get three of yours."
Works better than "I love you."

I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.
I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.
That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

I used to be a lot more starry eyed about the whole pressure point thing. They have uses but it's always been stressed to me that they are strictly ICING, happy accidents that grease the wheels, and other such analogies.
The pressure points most people can agree (or admit) to being at least somewhat uncomfortable on a cosistent basis usually coincide with stuff in your body that's kinda important. Like tendons, arteries, major nerves, lymph nodes, etc. Which is why impact there hurts; your body is telling you to cease the offending event. Just something to consider (like Rash's muscles being ground up by elbow... its OKAY to "give in" for the sake of personal health).
That said, I've been told that only a handful of kyusho (like 4-5 spots) actually respond properly to steady/slow pressure like digging in. You can LOCATE these areas fine, and cause some discomfort, BUT you aren't going for a conscious reaction to pain. The idea is to produce small involuntary re-actions from the body before the opponent can mentally react, with quick "pops" to sensitive spots where he can't notice them coming.
Interestingly Gyokko ryu (which is commonly known as the big kyusho school in the Buj) doesn't really have concrete targets. Major examples are cited in the kata of course, but AFAIK in the big picture you pretty much poke here and there wherever musculature is stretched or tensed. The idea often is to squeeze thick muscle against bone and cause it to possibly cramp up (I've had that happen to my calf and bicep several times), knock nerves against skeleton/dense muscles to create some small alignment change, etc.
The more effective nerve attacks I've felt don't really feel like anything, tickle more than hurt. There's one in the hip-bowl that can really make your legs buckle if you aren't prepared for it. Generally speaking the suprise factor is essential.

I was grappling and my opponent accidently nurpled me. It definitely got me to move. Does that count? Up until now I hadn't considered it as a no-gi grappling aid.
