Even though MartialTalk.com has posted the information about pressure points, we want to make sure everyone knows that if they do attempt to manipulate them they do so at their own risk. It is suggested that the Pressure Point information found on MartialTalk.com be only used for reference material, and that you seek out a qualified instructor to learn this material from.

Please use this material responsibly.

CV 1: HUIYIN (Perineum)
In the centre of the perineum. Midway between the anus and the scrotum in men and midway between the anus and commissura labiorum in females. Hui means crossing and Yin here is referring to the genitalia, the Pt is located in the space between the genitalia and the anus.
Death or coma. CV 1 is one of the very dangerous points if you can get at it! It is usually accessed using a toe strike upwards between the anus and scrotum. (The little grizzly bit). If you can also use a taijiquan typical kick using the side of the foot on the big toe side (the edge) you can access CV 1, Chang Mai, and GV 1, a combination that you will have to be very serious about using! This is a point that is used in T.C.M. for drowning as it is the general luo point of all eight extra meridians. It will supply jing Qi to the body in the same way that a heavy strike to KD 1 will in the case of heart stopping where the trauma has been so great that the body has no reserve of Qi left to start the heart. In this case, the kidneys have stored Qi for emergencies which can be accessed either by striking or bleeding KD 1 or by applying pressure or needling 5 fen upwards into CV 1.

CV 2: QUGU (Crooked Bone)
On the mid-line of the abdomen, just above the symphysis pubis. 5 cun below the umbilicus, at the superior aspect of the symphysis pubic.
This strike is just as good as if not better than a strike to the groin. This can cause knock out or even death struck hard enough. The potential dangers of this strike are sterility and cancer of the genital region.

CV 3: ZHONGJI (Middle Summit or Central Pole)
On the anterior mid-line, 4cun below the umbilicus, 1 cun above the upper border of the symphysis pubis. Zhong means centre and Ji here means exactly, the point is exactly at the centre of the body.
This strike is one of the most damaging strikes to the genital area as it will also affect the SP, KD & LIV. Immediately, the recipient will fall down with Qi disruption, blood will probably flow from the penis and he will probably die if medical attention is not sought. Later diseases same as for CV2.

CV 4: GUANYUAN (Hinge at the Source or Gate Origin)
On the midline of the abdomen, 3cun below the umbilicus.
CV 4 is one of the deadly points. It is not actually the tantien (dantien) but is situated just under the tantien. This is an electrical area about 3 inches below the navel where the Qi is said to be stored. The Chong Mai is an extra meridian which mostly travels through kidney points, so it is believed that the tantien is actually the kidneys. This is the area that we try to cultivate during qigong practice. We centre the mind upon the tantien so that the Qi will sink to the tantien. From there it is sent to all parts of the body so that we will have Qi to do work. So, it is true to say that the Qi comes from the tantien down to K1 and then to all parts of the body. So if tantien is damaged then death is not far off. A strike in the correct direction here, quite hard will cause death from Qi stoppage. Struck upwards will cause in the immediate, extreme high blood pressure, fainting and possible death. Struck downwards will cause extreme Qi drainage with knock out. Struck straight in only will cause the Qi to slow up and possible increasing sickness and death.

CV 5: SHIMEN (Stone Door)
On the midline of the abdomen, 2cun below the umbilicus.
CV 5 is regarded as being the dantien (tantien) point. Another name for it is Ming Men. Well, this point is a doozey! Even acupuncturists will not needle this point if possible. In ancient texts on acupuncture, it is said of this point that it will shorten the patients life or cause sterility in women! So any damage to this point will indeed shorten the recipients life, like dead right then. A trauma to this point will impede the internal communication needed for Qi production including the distribution of yuan Qi or ancestral Qi, as well as block the smooth flow of Qi between the 3 major points of CV 3, 4 & 5. CV 5 is the mu point for the triple warmer. It will impair a womans reproduction and/or shorten the life expectancy even if damaged lightly. Keep well clear of this part of the lower abdomen in training as even a light strike here could damage Qi production and eventually shorten ones life.

CV 6: QIHAI (Sea of QI)
On the mid-line of the abdomen, 1.5cun below the umbilicus or half way between CV 7 and CV 5.
Again, this is a very dangerous point. You could strike CV 5 and CV 6 together for a devastating result. It is said in ancient dim-mak texts that there is no return from this double strike! When struck, the whole Qi circulation will be upset or stopped resulting in either instant or delayed death! when a severe strike has occurred to this point, it takes around 3 days for the Qi to slow down and stop flowing. Or if very hard, instant death. Even in lighter strikes, the kidney function will be impaired for life causing the quality of life to be diminished.

CV 7: YINJIAO (Yin's Junction)
On the mid-line of the abdomen, 1cun below the umbilicus.
This point is also dangerous, but not as dangerous as the last two. It is getting a little higher up and although it is not greatly protected, it relatively so to CV 5 & 6. A strike here, should you not also get CV 5 & 6 with the same strike, will cause knock out, hard enough and it could cause death from kidney failure.

CV 8: QIZHONG (Middle of Navel)
In the middle of the umbilicus.
The navel is not well protected. Although it is higher up on the stomach than the previous CV points, there is a direct link to the internal through this point. All around CV 8 is well protected by muscle, but right in the middle is not. So it is easy to inflict damage at this point. A strike here causes spleen damage as well as physical stomach damage. It will cause much yang Qi to spread out all over the torso and up into the head causing knock out or death with a hard strike. This is also a very dangerous point. Acupuncturists are warned not to needle this point, only to use moxa on it to warm the yang Qi of the body, and even then the moxa is burnt over salt or ginger.

CV 9: SHUIFEN (Division Of Water)
On the mid-line of the abdomen, 1 cun above the umbilicus.
Removes power by attacking the lungs, spleen and kidneys. There is not much physical damage here, it is all electrical as this point is fairly well protected. The use of iron shirt training will also enhance the protection. Iron Shirt qigong is a type of protective qigong that builds up a sort of barrel of grizzle around the abdomen. There are many different types of iron shirt, however, there is only one that really works to protect the abdomen. And that is that which comes from the internal martial arts. There are many instructors out there teaching the internal martial arts, but most teach hard style iron shirt. Some have even been known to give people hernia from this extremely hard practice. So be careful when seeking out an iron shirt teacher. Look to see if that teacher is teaching soft style qigong, with not heavy breathing or tensing of anus muscles or stomach muscles or clenching of fists etc. If you see him going red in the face, then walk out! Iron shirt training is also only ever learnt from doing actual training. Ie., having someone strike you and learning not to greatly tense the muscles. This will help in the building up of the barrel.

CV 10: XIAWAN (Lower Cavity)
On the midline of the abdomen, 2 cun above the umbilicus.
This point along with CV 12 and 13 when struck will damage the production of Qi, slow it down and eventually stop it flowing causing death. So, although death is not necessarily immediate, it will slowly come after a bout of ill health which slowly gets worse.

CV 11: JIANLI (Establish Measure)
On the midline of the abdomen, 3cun above the umbilicus.
This point in particular is well protected. Striking here, catching the opponent unawares however, will cause great internal damage with Qi drainage causing a knock out.

CV 12: ZHONGWAN (Middle Cavity)
On the mid-line of the abdomen, 4 cun above the umbilicus. Zhong means middle and Wan means Stomach the PT is in the middle of the Stomach.
See the damage for CV 10. Plus, this point will cause vomiting and even diarrhoea. It has so many connections that any strike here is dangerous. It is the Mu point of the stomach, a special meeting point of the Fu, (hollow or yang organs) and the meeting point of middle and triple heater. A strike here will cause disharmony in the yin and yang or earth and causes disharmony with its relationship to metal. It will cause emotional problems resulting in physical defects such as obesity. So a strike to this point, although causing immediate damage, will also cause latent damage.

CV 13: SHANGWAN (Upper Cavity)
On the mid-line of the abdomen, 5cun above the umbilicus
See CV 10 and 12. Plus, this strike will also affect the heart and lungs, draining Qi causing great weakness.

CV 14: JUQUE (Great Palace or Shrine)
On the mid-line of the abdomen, 6 cun above the umbilicus or 1 cun below the xiphoid process of the sternum.
This is one of the most dangerous points. People have been known to die when struck for instance with a cricket ball (or a baseball) right on the point at twelve noon. This point stops the heart as it is the heart mu point. A strike here can also cause mental illness and disharmony between the shen and the mind. A person receiving a strike here can actually die from a coughing/vomiting attack!

CV 15: JIUWEI (Wild Pigeon's Tail)
0.5 cun below the xiphoid process of the sternum or 7 cun above the umbilicus. Locate the PT in supine position with the arms uplifted.
This point is also a heart stopper, but not as dangerous as CV 14. It will also cause mental illness and also a peculiar side effect of itching skin which cannot be cured using normal western medicine.

CV 16: ZHONGTING (Middle Hall or Courtyard)
On the middle of the sternum, level with the 5th intercostal space or 1.6 cun below CV 17.
This point will also do great damage as it is between the xiphoid process and the sternum. Physical damage is incurred as well as internal damage. Vomiting will occur as well as coughing attacks. It will cause knock out and it is a point that is not that well protected. A very hard strike here will cause death.

CV 17: SHANZHONG or TANZHONG (Penetrating Odour)
On the mid-line of the sternum, between the nipples, level with the 4th intercostal space. Tan means exposure and Zhong means middle, the Point is located at the exposed middle part of the chest called Tanzhong in ancient times.
CV 17 is another of the very dangerous strikes. In fact he CV meridian for a dim-mak expert is like a child in a sweet factory. This point traditionally drains energy from the seat of power, or the diaphragm. Striking this point downwards causes knock out in the least and death at the most. A strike here causes the recipient to fall down from lack of power. A warning comes with this point for those who would play around with it. Never use this point on anyone under the age of 25! The sternum cartilage has not yet hardened and can be broken easily in younger people. This point has many properties. It is the mu point of the pericardium, hence it will also attack the heart. It is a meeting point of shao yin, (heart & kidney) a sea of energy point with BL 10 and ST 9, meeting point of upper and three heater. It will also deregulate the flow of Qi throughout the system. It will also totally destroy the relationship and balance between water and fire within the system.

CV 18: YUTANG (Jade Court)
On the mid-line of the sternum, level with the 3rd intercostal space, 1.6 cun above CV 17.
This point is very well protected and is a point that I would not use in a tight situation. However, it will do damage struck hard enough. Coughing fits will be produced with this strike. Local pain and Qi drainage is also apparent. It must be struck with a smaller weapon to do any Qi damage.

CV 19: Chest ZIGONG (Purple Palace)
On the mid-line of the sternum, level with the 2nd intercostal space, 1.6 cun above CV 18.
This point produces much the same as CV 18 only more local pain is felt with more Qi drainage. It can be used in situations where the attacker has to be controlled, as in the case of a door attendant or bouncer. A quick shot using a one knuckle punch (I only hit him in the chest officer!) and he will be putty in your hands, coughing a spluttering. Then use TH 17 one finger in the point while the other hand controls the head for extra pressure, and take him out, no worries.
