Overview

Kyusho provides details of the vital points on the body and explains their relevance in the practice of the martial art.

Every action in Martial Arts and self-defense aims at discovering the opponents weak points, exploiting them and finally disabling their opponent without injury or to bring them under control. Although our knowledge about the build-up of the human body has multiplied, in many books on the subject of Martial Arts an explanation concerning the effect of various striking and pressure techniques has reduced to mentioning merely causes pain, paralyzes, death. Explanations are missing or are left in the realm of the esoteric. However, it would be appreciated very much if the followers of Martial Arts delved more into the possible medical outcome of their actions.
