    Striking points / pressure points in torso ?

    Where are the pressure points in the torso? Is there a book or chart where I can see where they are? Which areas are most effective to strike in sparring? Please post whatever striking points you like to use, but I'm most interesting in those in the torso that I can utilize during tournament fighting.

    The only one I know if is in the chest (just below the should on either side of the breast bone) I kind of knew it was there, but "found" it by surprise during a tournament last year. I punched my opponent (not very hard I might add) whoa did it get a response. I had to employ the "quick turn, kneel and look sorry" tactic to avoid a warning for accessive force (even though I honestly didn't hit that hard)

    Just wondering if there's any other good striking points in the mid-section. I'm not saying I want to always go after pressure points, but it would be nice to know where they are when opponents gets a little too cute with their hard hitting.

    There are many, you can get good charts and books at WWW.DRAGONSOCIETY.COM. I am a member and study PP under Rick Moneymaker;s direction. He does not teach the rub-tap tickle ko. rather the punch - slam a forearm - kick break things in his seminars.

    TKDist, I'm going to give you piece of advise for when it comes to cavity (pressure point) striking.
    Study human physiology!! In all seriousness though, nerves, blood vessels, and cavity gaps are guarded by both muscular groups, and skeletal structures. If you want nerves, find a bone and strike or press behind it. If you want cavity gaps, find a break in muscular groups, and again strike or press behind and in-between them.
    There's also a basic and general rule I learned whilst training for my Shiatsu license... it's that anywhere you put your hands on a person...you will strike a cavity...if even by force direction alone.

    I realize they'll never teach you this effectively
    in Tae Kwon Do....but it's valuable to know...if you have the patience to learn on your own.

    Hey don't forget the bladder. I had got kick and hit in bladder few time luckly I know what it could do. It would be a really nasty surprise for those who have no idea what it would do. It could cause the victim to wet themself.

    It is a rat eat rat world.

    There are 12 major and 14 minor points in Torso that is taught to strike in Shaolin ChuanDian Gong there are a further 5 points in the foot which can also effect the torso. It is very difficult to explain in words but if you are really interested in learning then ask a herbal doctor or learn from New York, London, Southampton, China and soon Austria.

    How did you even come across a 12 year old thread? What did you search to find this?
