Thus. Thus. Though you revive the person. a strike could tear the intima of the vessel leading to artherosclerosis or clot formation. Even the strikes to the throat show very strong contraction of the platysma. However. this phenomenon works through the same area of the brain: the nucleus tractus solitarii.dimmak. Interestingly.

In another theory on dim mak's origin. and the occipital nerves has been found to cause vasovagal syncope (i. carotid sinus. which is believed by some to have influenced many different styles of martial arts. This is a much more plausible explanation because many of the knockouts using dim mak/ pressure points do not involve enough force to injure the medulla oblongata or are too far away from the medulla oblongata. there are many martial artists who think that only those who can perform pressure point knockouts know what they are talking about. some believe that Zhang Sanfeng was actually a student of a man named Feng Yiyuan.

Funakoshi did not teach the dim mak applications of the katas. many of his changes blunt the dim mak applications of kata or make them harder to find. Fortunately. Q: How can I learn Dim Mak? A: The real key to learning dim mak is to find the dim mak techniques hidden within the traditional martial arts. he states that he did this to make the katas easier for the Japanese to learn. had hand written copies of this text. There are even sections on the delayed death touch and the seven forbidden points. For example. Perhaps this was also done to encrypt the secrets of kata.

In his books. Funakoshi even states in his books that his kata changes were not for combat. He made variations in the katas so that they could be safely taught to school children. Thus. Miyagi. the Bubishi contains the hidden link between dim mak and modern karate. This theory explains why so many of the traditional martial arts have a component of dim mak. Q: So what is the link between dim mak and karate? The answer to this question can be found in an ancient manuscript called the Bubishi. Given the fact that karate migrated from Okinawa to Japan. However. Many of the most famous karate masters including Funakoshi. Funakoshi changed some of the Okinawan karate katas when he introduced them to Japan. Erle Montaigue teaches the original dim mak version of tai chi.dimmak. it is clear that this includes both Okinawan and Japanese Karate. Thus. In addition. This modified version then developed into one of the most popular karate styles in Okinawa. Many believe that the dim mak techniques discussed in the Bubishi are actually hidden in the traditional Okinawan katas. The problem is finding instructors who really know the dim mak that is contained within their system. one can study one of the traditional Okinawan karate styles or kung fu styles like tai chi from a teacher who knows the dim mak applications. It is my belief that the Okinawan Shorin Ryu katas contain many of the original dim mak techniques. to one-hundred-eight. this can be difficult because many of the original katas have been modified.New Page 2 number of points to seventy-two and later.

I attended his seminars and purchased a number of his videos. which I have been training in for over 17 years. I found attacking the points to be very effective. why do you talk about the medical science behind dim mak instead of kyushojitsu? A: I guess most people are more comfortable using the term kyushojitsu for the use of pressure points in the karate styles. and Atemi Waza by Bruce Tegner. all of my spare time during medical school was spent researching dim mak. Third. By the time I started medical school. I received my shodan in 1987 and nidan in 1988. I found that many of my medical school courses. Second. This book really impressed me because it gave a somewhat modern explanation of pressure points and dim mak. the points. Dillman came out with his pressure point teachings.dimmak. I prefer to use dim mak for the following reasons. I found his teachings very useful and my pressure point studies were taken to a whole new level. Then during high school. I believe the terms dim mak and and kyushojitsu are just different names for the same thing because both refer to methods of attacking the points. I resumed my karate training but this time it was in Okinawin Shorin Ryu. but I was using the points in a very simplistic manner. His teachings seemed to fill many of the voids in my knowledge. At the age of 17. and medical science. I also earned a degree in biology. Additionally. However. I had developed an extensive library of books and videos and was trying to learn all I could from any source. I believe that attacking the points in Okinawan karate stems from dim mak because karate was influenced by the Chinese martial arts. osteopathic medicine. I had accumulated a great deal of medical research. I have also studied Aikido and Tang Soo Do. After a short period of time. Does it really matter what we call the methods of attacking the points? Q: So how did you learn dim mak and come to write a book about it? A: Just after I earned my shodan. and human physiology. I continued my search for more information.net/dimmakonline/q&a. In my early experiments. I use the term dim mak as a sort of traditionalist to give credit to the original version of the art. in the Bubishi. By the time I reached my fourth year. attacking the points is referred to as dim mak. I was very impressed by Erle because he seemed to be teaching the points for the benefit of the martial arts and not for commercial reasons. which allowed me to find more effective ways to combine and use the points as well as modern medical explanations for their effects. which helped tremendously. To my surprise. The book was called Pressure Points for Karate.

Thus.asp (1 of 3)1/20/2008 10:15:52 AM .Self Striking the CV 14 Point Striking the CV 14 point can cause increased parasympathetic stimulation leading to knockout or cardiac arrest. This sort of sudden death has been reported to occur during accidents. which cause a person to feel like they cannot breathe. Because the left lobe of the liver. and part of the stomach are located under the CV14 point. or the lower part of the stomach. they can be directly damaged by a very forceful blow to this point. the pancreas.dimmak. can cause severe pain that the brain interprets as coming from the internal organs. the pain is sensed by sympathetic nerves that are connected to a relay area called the celiac plexus. which is located under the CV 14 point. the simulated pain in the abdominal organs can cause profound stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system via the vagus nerve and cause cardiac arrest. Less intense stimulation can cause a dull. The pain is then transmitted to the spinal cord and brain. difficulty breathing. and the lower portion of the stomach. the pancreas. Thus. assaults. This can be explained by the fact that severe pain in the abdominal organs can cause vasovagal syncope (fainting caused by low blood pressure secondary to a low heart rate and dilated blood vessels). When the celiac plexus is struck with sufficient force. and damage to the left lobe of the liver. left lobe of liver. The result is a sudden spasm of the diaphragm and abdominal muscles. Blows to the CV 14 point have also been associated with sudden death. and/or a knockout (vasovagal syncope). when the celiac plexus is directly stimulated by a blow to this area. poorly defined pain.net/dimmakonline/cv14strike. it can cause intense pain that mimics damage to the pancreas. and even martial arts practice. the neurological connections of the celiac plexus explain why direct stimulation of the CV14 point can fool the brain into thinking that the internal organs are being damaged. When these organs are damaged. Sudden stimulation of the celiac plexus.
associated with an unintentional blow to this area, many have also noticed that a deliberate strike often has little effect. This is explained by the fact that the celiac plexus is located beneath the left lobe of the liver, the pancreas, and part of the stomach, which can partially cushion a blow and the abdominal muscles, which can absorb the impact of a blow when contracted. When a blow to this area occurs by surprise, the force is directly transmitted to the celiac plexus because the abdominal muscles are relaxed. However, when a blow is delivered to a well conditioned individual who is expecting it, the abdominal muscles tighten and protect the internal organs. The blow may still hurt but it will not have the same effect. Because of the anatomy of this area, an impulse type of blow can be very effective at stimulating the celiac plexus. The liver and pancreas have a large fluid content, which can transmit a wave of force. Since the relatively hard spine is located behind the celiac plexus, the force is concentrated on the celiac plexus. The final effect is like a wave hitting a rock. Thus, a quick snapping type of blow can cause a impulse wave to travel through the liver and pancreas and stimulate the celiac plexus. Interestingly, when the abdominal muscles are contracted, they actually facilitate this effect. The rigid abdominal muscles transmit the impulse wave like a tightened guitar string transmits a sound wave. This concept and the other vibrating palm targets will be further explained in an upcoming ebook on vibrating palm techniques and targets.
