    Also to the gentleman who was wondering about the light stroke having a strange effect, I believe it could be because you and you're buddy were sparring and he possibly hit you a few times on some points quite hard, when your points are hit with a certain force the brain makes adjustments what I think could have happened is your mate gently stroked you on the TW 21 and or the SI 18 That gentle touch can actually trick the brain as the brain has adjusted to those harder shots, in advanced kyusho one is encouraged to strike with varying degrees of volicity as so the opponents brain cannot adjust, similar to the concept of vibration on the points, the brain can quickly adjust to a constant but when it mixed with varying degrees of force the brain goes haywire. Sorry for going on thanks.

    Nothing from kyusho jitsu looks legit to me. All that Dillman stuff will fail you against anyone who doesn't believe it will work.

    Yeah I hear what you're saying but maybe you've only seen Dillman after he went nuts, ie throwing chi balls etc, I know kyusho does work, but it's not so much a ballistic art it's more about having the correct kinetic energy, and as people have quite rightly have pionted out, when in a real situation the motor skills shut down, that's the true art, how do you apply your knowledge when your hearts beating and your knees are knocking together, I guess it has to become reflex, but that takes time

    If it doesn't work against someone just standing there then it doesn't work period

    The thing is it all depends on your entry, the most important element in kyusho is striking the arms as that is the first thing we come in contact with, the arm points then set up the head and neck points but just to clarify you do actually have to touch the person

    How do you know it works?

    Can you explain what you mean by 'having the correct kinetic energy' and your use of the term 'ballistic' in that context?

    When was Dillman credible in your view?

    It works I know this because unforntuntley I had to use it. Your other question regarding kinetic energy, perhaps that's the wrong term, it's all about the energy transfer, putting your entire being onto that one spot of the person attcking you. Thanks

    Oh and sorry, I forgot to say although he is (Carya ovata) crazy Dillman is very credible when his not horsing around the mans knowledge is mind boggling

    That's cool man, and your right he is, however that chi ball bs is about 0.1 percent of his body of work, so a genius goes mad, that's a new thing?

    They do have some uses for distraction, compliance, and/or getting a reaction that is conducive to a technique but you're not going to knock anyone unconscious or debilitate them by touching a pressure point.

    Hi Supertramp and welcome to MAP :)

    Just a friendly reminder that we don't allow bad language here, even if gets caught by our filter.

    Cheers :)

    I have seen the other stuff he has done too

    I stand by my previous statement

    No you are right you won't, you have to hit the point with the right angle and the right energy

    Obviously I'm skeptical, but I'm interested in how you feel you've used pressure points in self defence. What happened?

    I can't say I've seen anything that would lead me to agree but I'm open to hearing some examples of this knowledge. Also I wonder exactly at what point your faith in his teaching waivers.
