Looks real. Nice takedown, would work well in a situation where some asshole is getting too close trying to provoke you.

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news, but the guy is a fraud. An American news crew went to film him but were skeptical of his techniques so took him to a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy where they asked him to try it out on the students there. Not one was rendered unconscious or even fell.

Here is the facts... there is no effective martial art out there that utilises pressure points or other mystical elements of that sort. So don't be taken in to these marketing ploys. They are just running a business to get as many people to sign up as possible.

But if it was real it would be cool :)

ok, both sides of the neck and then a kick to the right leg.. Now, any volunteers? >:)

#6, since when did pressure points become something mystical? Since when did Homo Sapiens evolve into something without weak points?

Oops sorry for the double post... pos
There is a nerve just under the ear which if struck hard will knock you out. Which is why karate practitioners like using the inside chop. There is no way where if you tap somebody on a part of the body that they will pass out.

The nerve on the neck under the ear is not a pressure point, but is directly connected to the nervous system which if struck sends a message to the brain to shut down. It is just like being punched square on the jaw by a force of 6 lbs.

I won't post a link to it, but in YouTube just do a search for "Martial Arts Death Touch" and you will see the video of one of these people who uses the very same technique on people outside of their dojo and fail.

#7, The use of pressure points used in a fighting system, for me, is mystical until scientifically proven. There is no pressure point on my body you can press or tap that will render me unconscious.

Yo S3B, whatever this video/man is fake or not think of this: on one side of human neck there's a large blood vein which does the main blood flow to the brain. If this vein supports a hit shock like that the blood flow stops instantly and in that second you're passing out. And without any kind of help (recommended as the same in the video) you might have big problems like brain damage or even death. The technique is as real as possible but only the very trained could do such, otherwise a successful hit would come bu pure luck. I've seen these techniques applied live and believe me are exactly as in the video. So...

If they're happy kicking and hitting each other let them at it, also giving out a Video once in awhile so we can check the progress of their absurdity, let them.

#14 Veins take blood away, back to the lungs and heart, so hitting them wouldnt stop blood flow TO the brain, dumbass!! It looks impressive, but its probably fake.

14# thanks for the reply, but just as Supra said. The only way to make someone pass out from stopping the blood flow is a form of choke. The most effective one being a rear naked choke. Here is one demonstrated by Frank Shamrock,

The choke stops blood leaving the brain which is what causes the victim to go unconscious. A strike to the neck could not cause the same results as the the flow needs to be stopped for a few seconds.

Now here is an example of a chop to the neck, right below the ear and jawbone which shocks the nerve I mentioned earlier. Hitting the lower part of the neck will not work,

I'll say it again... pressure point attacks will not render people unconscious. Only strikes to cranium, jaw and under the jawbone will knock someone unconscious, and of course a choke. But one thing I've noticed about these 'pressure point knockout' videos is that the victim is always some very skinny. Maybe that is why they don't require much of a force to knock them out. I reckon if they did it to someone who is more athletic it would not work as it does in this video.

Sorry about the long posts, I just hate seeing people fall into marketing ploys into martial arts systems that are actually not that good. Giving people false confidence is dangerous, especially on the street.

The only way I could see this actually being for real is if it were somehow connected to the Vagus nerve. The Vagus is the major cranial nerve related to parasympathetic response. (Parasympathetic response being the opposite of 'fight or flight') The parasympathetic being responsible for slowing the heart, slowing the rate of gas exchange in the lungs, increasing bowel motility and emptying of the bladder. In fact, Emergency care responders will sometimes perform a vagal stimulation in order to combat a racing heart rate.

Unfortunately, you would think if it IS connected to the Vagus nerve, that not only would the guy pass out, he would also crap and piss himself.

I believe what is happening is that he is striking the neck midway between the ear and chin (his fingers are under the ear and you don't strike with the fingers - rather the fleshy part of the hand/knuckle)on both sides.
This is the area of the Carotid Artery. If you strike an artery, there is swelling inside the blood vessel - this creates a constriction leading to decreased blood flow to the brain for an extended period of time (rather than what people are saying about it being a relatively small time).
This is probably why the guy massages his student/victim after, to relieve the swelling and return normal blood flow. It would work even better if the victim's head was facing down as it makes the arteries move forward to the front of the neck.

It's not fake, it's kyusho, a martial art that works with the body's pressure points.

This is possible .. Li18 and Spln6 both the kyusho points are effective .. but combination is yin and Yang .. (+) + (-) = (-) . Effect is bit less i guess . nice video

And I must add one more thing, I got interested and read more comments on that subject: the one I would agree with is hitting man in left back side of neck. Tried it on myself - it is only one point where I feel slight tingling in neck when I hit it and my left arm is tingling for a little moment, just like after hitting something hard with elbow. It is unpleasant sensation and if I hit powerful enough I think I would be dizzy and possible pass out. The spot is about 2 cm up from a bone, behind a string of muscles which goes after left ear.
