The control points of the human body as the main targets of the human body to know where to hit to be effective and create more damage to your aggressor / opponent are elements to know.
Don’t get manipulated!
These that I am going to list you are 10 control points of the human body that you need to know and integrate into your training.
Some of these human body control points surely you already know and use them!
You will have happened several times on yourself or to see friends who playing someone to indicate go to that country pushes the elbow of the friend towards the body making him move his foot and then unbalance it because the movement serves to restore balance.
Or in Muay Thai through the Clinch which is based on controlling the opponent’s neck to move and unbalance him while powerful kneesare thrown at him or create openings to deliver blows or elbows.
A friend who keeps you by the fingers to play and even if he does not know what he does you are forced to follow him let alone if he knew the techniques of Chin Na.
(擒) is a Chinese martial arts term for the set of joint grip and control techniques, blows, and dislocations.
Over the centuries, numerous techniques have been added: joint levers (拿骨 Nagu), throat grips, muscle and tendon grips (拿筋 Najin) and vital point pressure (拿穴 Naxue) or Dianxue (点穴).
Some styles such as Yingzhaoquan and Baguazhang are particularly specialized in these techniques.
The use of Qinna by the police and army has helped to make it an independent discipline today.
Particularly famous for his knowledge in this field was master Han Qingtang.
Now aside from these examples, these are 10 main control points that you need to know:
- Fingers of the hands
As you can see they all correspond to the flexible elements of the body on which you can apply joint levers but what I’m talking about now are not levers or strokes in these points that certainly have their own specific effectiveness but they are real actions that control the body and its movements.
Human body control points are specific areas of the body that can be used to apply control, immobilization or pain techniques during martial arts or self-defense techniques.
These checkpoints may vary depending on your specific style and discipline, but here are some common examples:
1. Joints: Joints, such as wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees and ankles, are common control points. By applying leverage or pressure on these joints, it is possible to immobilize or limit the movement of the opponent.
2. Pressure points: The human body has numerous sensitive pressure points that can be stimulated to cause pain or disorientation. Some examples include pressure points on the neck, chest, temples, and abdomen.
3. Spine: The spine is a delicate area of the body that can be exploited to control an opponent. By applying pressure or performing twisting techniques, it is possible to immobilize or induce pain in the spine.
4. Nerves: Nerves are sensitive points in the body that can be targeted to create pain or loss of function. Some examples include radial nerves on the arm, sciatic nerves on the legs, or facial nerves.
5. Vulnerable points: There are some particularly vulnerable areas of the body, such as the eyes, nose, throat, groin or abdomen. Hitting or applying pressure to these areas can cause pain, discomfort, or disorientation.
6. Facial pressure points: The face has several sensitive pressure points, such as the temples, jaw, chin and nose. Hitting or applying pressure to these areas can cause pain and disorientation.
7. Arm Control Points: The arms offer different opportunities for control. Arm control points include the wrist, elbow, and shoulder joint, which can be used to immobilize the opponent or restrict movement.
8. Leg Control Points: The legs offer control points such as the knee, ankle and hip. By applying pressure or performing levers on these areas, you can limit the opponent’s movement or make him fall to the ground.
9. Chest pressure points: The chest has sensitive points such as the solar plexus (below the sternum) and ribs. Stimulating these areas can cause pain and difficulty breathing.
10. Head Control Points: The head offers control points such as the base of the skull and the jaw. By applying pressure or manipulating these areas, you can control the position or direction of the opponent.
11. Spine control points: In addition to leveraging techniques, there are also specific points along the spine that can be exploited for control. These include the neck, lower back and tailbone.
12. Pressure points of the hands and feet: The hands and feet contain numerous sensitive pressure points. Stimulating these areas can cause pain and weakening of grip or stability.
13. Neck pressure points: The neck contains sensitive pressure points such as Adam’s yoke, throat and skull base. Stimulating these areas can cause pain and limit the mobility of the opponent.
14. Finger control points: Fingers and toes may be subject to control techniques, such as twisting or leveraging. Manipulating the fingers can cause pain and weaken the opponent’s grip.
15. Leg pressure points: The legs offer pressure points such as the Achilles tendon, calf muscle and quadriceps muscle. Hitting or applying pressure to these areas can cause pain and limit the opponent’s mobility.
16. Neck and shoulder control points: The neck and shoulders are key areas for opponent control. Applying levers or pressure on these areas can affect the opponent’s movement control and stability.
17. Chest pressure points: The chest contains sensitive pressure points such as the sternum and solar plexus. Stimulating these areas can cause pain and difficulty breathing.
18. Hip Control Points: Hips can be harnessed for control using leverage, pressure or lock techniques. These areas affect the stability and mobility of the opponent.
19. Pressure points of the face and head: In addition to the pressure points mentioned earlier, there are other sensitive points on the face and head, such as the eyes, temples and the back of the head. Stimulating these areas can cause pain and disorientation.
20. Wrist and hand control points: Wrists and hands can be exploited for control through grips or twists. Manipulating these areas can limit the grip and attack ability of the opponent.
I remind you that the use of control points of the human body requires competence, practice and attention to safety.
Be sure to learn these techniques from a qualified instructor and adhere to the rules and principles of martial arts or self-defense.
It is important to note that the use of body control points should be carried out carefully and responsibly, avoiding causing permanent damage or causing serious injury.
Now I don’t want to go into detail but if you want to do something that controls your attacker’s body it’s on these body parts that you need to act.
Train to “play” with these control points!
