GI AP SOOL (Pressure Point Techniques)
The people of the Orient have studied the body's vital points, or pressure points for more than two thousand years. They used this knowledge for healing (i.e acupuncture and acupressure) and also to develop a very effective fighting system. There are 657 major pressure points on the body and in Kuk Sool training we will use 356 of these points. Kuk Sool uses the collected knowledge of the body in its method of defence and attack.
A vital point may be located on the body where there is an exposed nerve without heavy protection from bone or muscle tissue, a joint formed by two bones or a point o the body where an organ may be easily damaged. Striking a vital point will cause pain, unconsciousness or death depending on the point struck, development of the opponent and the force of the blow. (A small person may use Kuk sool and its vital point attacks to defeat a larger opponent).
If an untrained person strikes an over-weight person in the stomach there would be little damage, but if a trained person strikes the same person in the solar-plexus with concentrated force, the opponent may become unconscious or die. With the use of attacking vital points and Ki power, the blow is seven times more effective.
In Kuk Sool vital points are not only attacked by striking or kicking, but also by grabbed or pressed to control the opponent.
