This interesting tape
by Vince Morris demonstrates, from a realistic perspective, the use of pressure points
against an opponent. Mr. Morris is obviously highly skilled in the use of these techniques.
Throughout this video, he demonstrates on a number of unfortunate ukes, how to incapacitate
On a personal note, I've always felt that using pressure points
effectively is one of the more difficult things to master in the martial arts. First,
it requires a thorough knowledge of the human anatomy. Second, I've been a bit skeptical
about relying on their use in the street, under stress, against a moving assailant.
However after having watched Mr. Morris in action, he can make one wonder.
Morris is very smooth, he easily torments his ukes, and subjects them to tremendous
amounts of pain, even though he is obviously not striking them very hard. The ukes
grimace, they jump back, they let go, they buckle, and basically do everything except
mount an effective counterattack.
This video is just over an hour long and
is taught at a seminar in a gymnasium. The audio part is not very good at the start
of the video, but it improves as it progresses. The video would have been much more
enjoyable without these audio difficulties.
It's a sweet little video that
provides good information. My only complaint is that I wish Mr. Morris would have
gone into a bit more detail about applying nerve point strikes.
this video, and how to learn it's various techniques, one of the first things that
came to mind is that applying these techniques, on a training partner, would be very
painful for them. This made me realize that for many, training could be limited to
very short sessions.
If you are interested in learning about the practical
application of pressure point defenses, this would be a good purchase for your video
