Pressure points aren’t always guaranteed to work on your opponent.
Depending on their natural pain tolerance and if they are on drugs or are very angry. However, make no mistake proper use of pressure points will cause damage to your opponent.
In these Kung Fu lessons online we are demonstrating 3 basic pressure points you can apply to a person’s arm. What are pressure points? Points on which you can apply pressure that will weaken the arm due to pain.
In its most basic form, the method that we are employing is what we refer to as a drilling technique. You have the ability to weaken someone through the use of pressure points, but you do not have the ability to defeat someone via the use of pressure points. By making use of them till you figure out what steps to do next, you can just buy yourself some further time.
Absolutely understand that pressure points can be effective. However, some people have a high tolerance for pain and others may be on some sort of a drug where they don’t feel the pain being applied.
In most cases, pressure points can distract your attacker long enough for you to come up with another solution. I mentioned this again because I don’t want you to get fixated on just one idea.

I like it sifu it’s useful simple doesn’t take much effort to preform .
Larry Rivera says
Hey Samantha, you hit the nail on the head. If a technique takes a lot of effort then you are performing the technique wrong. I like to tell people that when you do a technique correctly it almost feels effortless.

Dear Sifu you have to press hard with your thumb and while making a circle with your thumb and where are the pressure points located on the arm, thank you.
Sifu Phu Ngo says
Hey merckx, yes you have to apply pressure based on the torque. The force is based on how refined the torque is. Think of it like a drill as it is spinning you can’t push too hard, you got to put pressure as a drill is torquimg through, pushing too hard over the torque and you can wind up breaking the drill bit. Hope that helps you understand better.
