    I trained in PPCT (pressure point control tactics) and have seen big guys go down hard and fast to a single PP strike. I think that no-touch PPKO stuff is complete garbage and like you said "own increased suggestibility much like in stage hypnotism."

    This guy I used to hang out with tried to 'surprise attack' me from behind with a big stick. I didn't realise it was him until AFTER I did a PPstrike to his solarplexus and he folded like a cheap Ikea chair. When I had my short-lived 'patron transfer technician' job, I used PPtactics to much effectiveness in escorting drunk patrons out of the bar. There are some nice nerve clusters between the side of the neck and the collarbone. I've also seen a 5'4" 180 lb Philippino KTFO a 6'2" pissed-off Hindu with a single pressure point strike to the neck, A spot about a half inch to the side of the throat.

    Waitaminute, shouldn't this thread be in the Techniques/Tactics area?

      There are more than "some nice nerve clusters" on the side of the neck...

        Pressure points exist, they're just nerves close to the skin, but their effectivness in a combat scenario are IMO zero, as you need accuracy to hit them which is virtually impossible on a moving opponent.

          In the use of force continuum, they are one step above verbal orders.

          In a police academy class of 55 in which we drilled these (because they are, in fact, so inherently safe):

          -Some people were super sensitive.
          -Some were senstive to some, but not others
          -Some people were generally insenstive to them
          -Some people, for whom the points intially worked, eventually got used to them.

          Pain is something people can deal with in a variety of ways.

          Or maybe we just didn't know the deadly secret ones.

            Pressure points have always just proved and annoyance to me. Nothing else. I wouldn't rely on them in a fight anymore than I rely on them in sparring (that is to say--not at all).

Never mind that it doesn't fucking work. Oh no, they're too fast for track. They run on the STREET.

              I thought pressure points where just spots where the body is most sensitive, like nerves, the eyes, the neck, stuff like that. So they could work, if you could apply the proper technique and actually hit (a punch to the throat or t3h d34dly eye gouge).

                      My instructor once said "Don't bother using pressure points in a fight because it'll take a million years to find and even if you do find it, he might not be affected by it"

                        Kickatcher, pressure points ARE real. They're just kept secret by a few grand masters in china. You can't learn about them or know them, but trust me, they are real.

                          Don't want to get personal here but are you actually calling me a wanker? Just that I missed the intelligent point you were trying to make.

                            One thing I've done is 'atemi points' i.e. week points; good places 2 aim 4 like the neck, groin etc. if the opertunity presents iself.
                            & some pressur points, what we did was just places that hurt & could be used 2 distract some on while u apply a joint lock, or relax ther grip so u can try and escape, not be all & end all d343dly things but an extra way of putting the other guy in pain.

                            It comes down to how u use them mosly on here when people say presur points their refering to people who calim vulcan deach gripps & ther equivalent,

                              Hold on, you're not training for accuracy? So what are you doing? Just throwing a limb out there and hoping for the best?
