Kyusho Atemi-Waza Vital Point Striking Techniques

Knowledge of Vital Points or Kyusho is essential in both understanding the more complex interpretation of Kata and in dealing with more powerful opponents in life threatening situations.

In short, a vital point is that part of a body which, when struck with sufficient force, angle and accuracy, can render the opponent incapacitated, unconscious or even dead. Many explanations exist to describe the effect, from Eastern philosophies, to Western science. The important point however is the drastic effect on the nervous system which, if improperly praticed, can lead to headaches, nausea, unconsciousness or worse. It is therefore, strongly advised that interested Karate-Ka seek expert tuition from Masters such as Sensei Rick Clark and alike in order to learn the safety aspects and the physical instruction needed to effect the information described here.

Important: Vital points should never be used against people over 40 years of age, people with heart disease, on drugs or medication or, if in doubt, at all! This information is intended to improve your knowledge and is not meant to be used without the supervision of a qualified instructor. We take no responsibility for the use of information found here.
