How’s that possible?
A lot of trainers say that one of the keys to effective self-defense is taking the attacker out of the comfort zone. To put it simply, don’t punch the striker and don’t grapple with the wrestler. However, striking and grappling are not the only ways of neutralizing your opponent – here’s the proof.
Professor Leon Jay, whom we see in the video, is a 9th degree black belt in jujitsu, he also has black belts in judo and taekwondo – that suggests this man probably can take any striker or grappler. But Mr. Jay is also an 8th degree black belt in Dillman International’s Pressure Point fighting system and he willingly demonstrates its advantages. It looks unbelievably easy – you intercept the punch, grab the guy’s head, put your fingers on his cheeks, press… and see how the attacker drops down out cold. Luckily for professor Leo’s student there was another guy who helped him not to fall too hard, the real attacker would not be so lucky.
The traditional definition of a pressure point is a point that, when pressure is applied, produces crippling pain. Pressure point fighting may seem a miracle or a fake (depends on your personal attitude), but it actually has a longtime history. In ancient China masters of Dim Mak – a pressure point martial art – were reportedly capable of not only hurting and even killing their opponents but also could cure people pressing certain points.
Professor Leon Jay trains martial arts for almost fifty years, since the age of two. From his father, Wally Jay, he inherited Small Circle Jujitsu, a school where principles of classic jujitsu are combined with the theory and practice of pressure point fighting.
