Karateculture.com recently asked me to do an article about the use of pressure points inside of MMA. I looked around to find a good starting point, and I figured what better way than to look at some of the best knock outs in the UFC. I found a video on YouTube of the Top 20 UFC Knockouts, and broke it down hit by hit. I compaired what point was used and explained how to find it. It was amazing to slow down the video and watch these fighters hit pressure points. Of course a top favorite was Stomach 5, because of how easy it is to use it.
I encourage others to comment on what you think of MMA using pressure points! We recently got a great video (From karateculture.com) showing authentic karate techniques compaired to MMA moves. I think this video does the same similar thing, showing us that these points work! Also goes to show that pressure points can be used in every style, regardless of where it came from!
Heres the like to the video and article:
Let me know what you guys think!
