ST 21: LIANGMEN (Door of the Beam)
4 cun above the umbilicus, 2cun lateral to the CV 12.
This point can be protected somewhat by the abdominal muscles, however, it is also an electrical point so will have an affect regardless. Causes great local pain and Qi drainage and causes stomach and spleen problems due to its affect upon the Yang Qi of those organs.
ST 22: GUANMEN (Gate)
3 cun above the umbilicus, 2cun lateral to CV 11.
This strike attacks the communication between upper and lower. So confusion over what the lower body is doing. A feeling of something draining from lower body is also apparent until the power to he legs has gone.
ST 23: TAIYI (Great Yi)
2 cun above the umbilicus, 2 cun lateral to CV 10.
Same as for ST 22. Plus an adverse affect upon the bladder causing problems in later life and immediately. The recipient is likely to urinate when struck here using a smaller weapon such as a one knuckle punch.
ST 24: HUAROUMEN (Door of Slippery Flesh)
Location: 1 cun above the umbilicus, 2cun lateral to CV 9.
This point is protected by the abdominal muscles, however it will have an electrical affect which affects the colon. In other words, will cause the recipient to defecate not too soon after the strike, but with great pain.
ST 25: TIANSHU (Heaven's Axis)
2 cun lateral to the centre of the umbilicus.
A mu colon point, this strike will affect the colon, it is on the border of protection and no protection, ie., the torso is well protected by muscle but below the navel there is relatively little protection. This strike can cause knock out when done hard. It will also cause diarrhoea on the spot. This is a point that is capable of causing emotional disorders and also the physical symptoms that go with emotional disorders because it upsets the communication between Shen and Zhang fu, in this case between the Shen (Spirit) and Gallbladder and Triple Heater. In the first instance, the recipient will feel pain that will grow in a circle outward from the strike, then a great feeling of power loss.
ST 26: WAILING (Outer Tomb)
1 cun below the umbilicus, 2cun lateral to CV 7.
This strike will cause much the same damage as ST 25 as it is still right over the colon, there will be a little more physical damage as it is further down into the lower body. A hard strike will cause black out as it is an intestine strike. There are three organs which when in pain or struck, will cause a knock out. The Gallbladder, the intestines and the ureter.
ST 27: DAJU (The Great or, Big Huge)
2 cun below the umbilicus, 2cun lateral to CV 5.
This is a Shokanten point of Yang Ming and as such the strike will disrupt in this instance, the communication between the Shen (Spirit) and Colon/Stomach. It will cause emotional problems immediately and if not treated by an acupuncturist, will grow into emotional problems like not letting go of unwanted emotions (allowing them to grow and fester!) And also will cause emotional things like obsessiveness to extremes.
In the immediate will also cause great pain and Qi loss and knock out if the strike is hard enough.
ST 28: SHUIDAO (Water Way)
3 cun below the umbilicus, 2cun lateral to GV 4. In the rectus abdominis muscle and its sheath.
This strike is dangerous. It will immediately cause knock out through the action on the colon causing an explosion in the lower heater which will grow outwards to the rest of the lower abdomen. Needless to say that repeated strikes to any of the lower abdomen points can cause bowel cancers later in life! This point really shocks the whole lower heater, causing damage to the elimination system.
ST 29: GUILAI (Return)
4cun below the umbilicus. 2cun lateral to CV 3 In the lateral margin of the rectus abdominis muscle, the internal oblique muscle and the aponeurosis of the transverse abdomens muscle.
This is a special point for the genitals. It is opposite CV 3 which is a meeting point for the three yins. It will affect the circulation of Kidney Qi which in turn will affect the power of the whole body. It will cause stagnation of Qi and thus a gradual loss of health. The immediate affect is a knock out by the action upon the genitals, hard enough will cause death.
ST 30: QICHONG (Pouring QI)
5 cun below the umbilicus, 2cun lateral to CV 2, superior to the inguinal groove, on the medial side of the femoral artery. In the aponeurosis of the external and internal oblique muscles, and the lower region of the transverse abdominis muscle.
This is the Sea Of Nourishment Point" along with ST 36. It is also a point of the Chong Mai, or life force meridian. Circulates yuan Qi to the stomach and hence to earth. A strike here will cause the bodys ability to fight off disease to be lower. And an overall lessening of Qi to the internal organs will gradually grow. The free flow of Qi is hindered by this strike. The opposite occurs when ST 30 and 36 are treated in a healing way. Immediately, there is a knock out from this strike and death can occur when a very heavy strike is taken. Even after treatment, the damage continues to grow if not treated also by an acupuncturist.
ST 31: BIGUAN (Hip Hinge or Thigh Gate)
Directly below the anterior superior iliac spine, in the depression on the lateral side of the satorius muscle when the thigh Is flexed, level with the perineum. Inferior and medial to the great trochanter of the femur, between the satorius and the tensor fascia lata muscles.
This point is called the leg draining point because thats what it does. It will cause the Qi to the legs to be lessened greatly causing the recipient to have to sit down or fall down! This point can be used as an excellent set up point for a physical leg strike, bones will break easily when this point has been struck first.
ST 32: FUTU (Hidden Rabbit)
6 cun above the laterosuperior border of the patella, on the line connecting the anterior superior iliac spine and the lateral border of the patella. At the lateral, anterior aspect of the femur, in the middle of the belly of the rectus femoris muscle.
This strike is called in dim-mak terms, leg paralysing point. This point can be struck with a palm straight across the thigh or using an implement such as a stick, the strike must be 180 degrees across the thigh. It paralyses the leg and shocks the whole system and will cause knock out when done hard enough because the brain is shocked for a moment not knowing what has happened.
ST 33: YINSHI (Yin's Market)
3cun above the laterosuperior border of the patella, on the line connecting the anterior superior iliac spine and the lateral border of the patella.
Great local pain and subsequent Qi drainage from the leg. This is also an electrical point that will send a rush of Qi to the head causing confusion and possible blackout if the strike is hard enough.
ST 34: LIANGQIU (Ridge Mould OR Beam Mound)
2 cun above the laterosuperior border of the patella, between the rectus femoris and the vastus lateralis muscles of the thigh.
This is a xi-cleft point (stores Zhen Qi) which normally promotes the circulation of Qi to the whole body. However, when struck using adverse Qi, it has the reverse affect. So power is lost through a hindrance of Qi and blood. Local pain and loss of leg power is immediately apparent.
ST 35: DUBI (Calf Nose) or XIYAN (Eyes of Knee)
When The knee is flexed, the point is in the depression below the patella and lateral to the patella tendon.
This point is a special point for knee problems in acupuncture. It is a trauma point. Local pain and knee injury immediately followed by severe kidney Qi drainage and damage causing immediate loss of power and tiredness.
ST 36: ZUSANLI (Three Measures of the Leg)
3 cun below ST 35, one finger breadth from the anterior crest of the tibia. Between the tibialis anterior and the tendon of the extensor digitorum longus pedis.
This point is a major point in acupuncture and in dim-mak. It is an earth and he point and sea of nourishment point along with ST 30. A strike here will cause great weakness which will slowly get worse untreated. The spleen is also damaged. Obvious immediate physical leg damage and pain. But it is the internal organ problems that this strike causes that is the main area of attack.
ST 37: SHANGJUXU (Upper Void)
Location: On the lower leg 3 cun below ST 36, in the tibialis anterior muscle.
This point damages the colon function, it can cause defecation immediately if struck hard enough. It will also drag too much Qi into the legs causing an imbalance in the whole system. This strike will also have an adverse affect on the flow of wei Qi, that which protects us from external pathogenic attack. So our immune system will slowly become ineffective. Obvious immediate pain and Qi drainage.
ST 38: TIAKOU (Line's Opening)
8 cun below ST 35, 2 cun below ST 37, midway between ST 35 and ST 41.
This is an interesting point. I have tested this strike and have found that it has a dire affect upon the power of the upper body especially the shoulders. In some cases the arms would not work after this strike and had to be treated using the antidote of ST 12.
ST 39: XIAJUXU (Lower Void)
9 cun below ST 35, 3 cun below ST 37, one finger breadth out from the anterior crest of the tibia.
This point affects the small intestine and will also cause paralysis of the legs when struck hard. It will also have an affect upon the wei Qi and so cause problems with the immune system later as well. Immediate great pain wen this point is struck spot on.
