Pressure Points:
When a person is severely cut and begins to bleed, it is time for quick action. First air for severe bleeding involves applying pressure over the wound. Sometimes it is possible to press the artery above the wound against the bone behind it, and stop the bleeding. This place is called a pressure point. A pressure point is also an excellent location to take a person’s pulse.

Understanding Pressure Point Strikes:
Striking to a hyel does not necessarily immediately knock a person out or cause a body part to become instantly numb, as has been propagated by many martial arts charlatans. Self-defense may be understood by the analogy of a body part that has fallen asleep, when proper circulation has been cut off from it.

When applying forced pressure to specific hyel, your goal is not to magically tender your opponent lifeless. What you are planning to achieve is both short term and long term interruption of your attacker’s energy. A listening carefully pressure point strike is initially accomplished by focusing your energy.

Pressure Point Self-Defense:
There are numerous hyels throughout the human body. The pressure point you access in self-defense is only dominated by your precise knowledge of their location and your ability to effectively reach them.

Location of Pressure Points Locations in Human Body:

1. Lung Points: Measure two inches from the nipple. The point is between the first and second ribs from the top, one inch below the middle of the collar bone.

2. Large Intestine Points: On the radial side of the index finger, one inch posterior to the corner of the nail.

3. Heart Points: Above the elbow, anterior; three inches above the elbow in the grove medial to biceps brachia.

4. Small Intestine Points: At the ulnar side of the small finger, about a tenth of an inch posterior to the corner of the nail.

5. Bladder Points: This point is located on the back of the knee. It is to be found in the exact midpoint of the popliteal transverse crease.

The Important Pressure Points for Hemorrhage:
The loss of a small amount of blood will cause no problem for a healthy , but loss of one liter or more of blood is life-threatening. The first step to control bleeding is the application of direct pressure to the wound using a clean cloth. An assisting person should wear gloves to protect from blood-borne diseases. A bleeding extremity should be elevated above the level of the heart. In cases of severe, persistent bleeding, application of pressure where a local artery can be pressed against a bone slows the bleeding. The most important of these "pressure points" are the following:

* The facial artery, which may be pressed against the lower jaw for hemorrhage around the nose, mouth, and cheek. One can feel the pulse of the facial artery in the depression about one inch anterior to the angle of the lower jaw.
* The temporal artery, which may be pressed against the side of the skull just anterior to the ear to stop hemorrhage on the side of the face and around the ear.
* The common carotid artery in the neck, which may be pressed back against the spinal column for bleeding in the neck and the head. Avoid prolonged compression, which can result in lack of oxygen to the brain.
* The subclavian artery, which may be pressed against the first rib by a downward push with the thumb to stop bleeding from the shoulder or arm.
* The brachial artery, which may be pressed against the arm bone by a push inward along the natural groove between the two large muscles of the arm. Hand, wrist, and forearm hemorrhage will be stopped by this pressing.
* The femoral artery, which may be pressed to avoid serious hemorrhage of the lower extremity.

It is important not to leave the pressure on too long, as this may cause damage to tissues supplied by arteries past the pressure point.
