It's the Nerves... Not the Joints

In Kyusho training, we always attack the nerves as opposed to the Joints in Locking, Throwing or Dislocations. We do this for efficiency and greater affects on the opponent with far less power and or damage.

We never seek to Dislocate a joint, however if we do need to accomplish this the nerve manipulation makes it far easier to accomplish.

As we apply the joint manipulation in Tuite, we stimulate the nerves, stretch the Golgi Tendon Organ (loosening all body muscles), or stretch the Muscle Spindle Cells (Constricting Body Muscles). This weakens and temporarily paralyzes the opponent prior to full collapse and dysfunction.

This posture, using an action out of the Uechi/Pangainoon version of Sanchin, has two applications, one for the Crane Striking methodology and the other for the Tigers grabbing and Pulling application, is devastating to the opponents limb, mental and physical abilities.
