    I'm a little puzzled by this comment. Sometimes both arms are required to block a power technique. The Thai roundhouse comes to mind.

    I agree you cant block everything with one arm unless you want to break an arm a few times

    As a very very very last resort, yes. I'd rather slip/bob it (ideal) or cover a single arm tight against my head (trying to avoid bone/bone contact). The damage will be less than trying to take the kick directly on the forearm and leaves the other arm open to counter. But don't get me wrong: that will still hurt like hell if they connect. No really, it will hurt; train to get out of the way. Committing 2 arms to a single defense is bad reflex especially if they feint.

    But again, try it under pressure with someone who knows what they're doing.

    chi
    qi
    pressure points
    dim mak
    are impractical techniques

    Chi : yes

    Qi :yes

    Dim mak :yes

    pressure points: no

    pressure points do work but very few people know how to do them correctly believe me i've be hit by a few touching someone and knocking them out i've never seen but applying pressure to certain parts of the body can be extremely damaging think about it a choke technically uses pressure points.

    Thus making them impractical.

    I disagree.

    Kyusho 'fighting' is at best crap.

    Use of Kyusho in a LEO situation to make a drunk person compliant, as an example, would be a more applicable use of pressure points.

    As to the OP I would add the impratical techniques are the ones the cannot be drilled with progressive resistance, or be pulled off in an alive scenario.

    LEO situations are not good situations for you to use pressure points. Lots of drunk people don't respond to pressure points. Also if you are doing certain drugs, you don't respond to pressure points.

    You do not want your life depending on whether or not someone is going to feel pain.
