Pressure Points of Arms

There are a lot of unexpected things that can happen in close-quarter combat, but one thing you can almost be certain of is that someone’s arm is going to attempt to make contact with you or someone you’re trying to protect. Hitting the right pressure point can put an abrupt end to any sort of attack and leave the attacker wondering what just happened. But first, you have to know where these pressure points are.

Knowing the pressure points is only half the battle. Knowing what to do with them will close the deal. You can even practice them at home. As always, it’s best to practice developing muscle memory. So go slow at first, and practice several different scenarios, avoiding the application of full pressure. Then build up your speed, until you can react without even thinking about it.
