Pressure point A pressure point called (Japanese: kyūsho 急所 " vital point , tender spot"; [ 1 ] Chinese: 穴位 ; Telugu: మర్మ స్థానం Marma Sthanam ; Malayalam: മര്മ്മം marmam ; Tamil: வர்மம் varmam ) in the field of martial arts refers to an area on the human body that may produce significant pain or other effects when manipulated in a specific manner. Techniques of attacks on pressure points are called Hyol Do Bup ( Hangul : 혈도법 ; 穴道法) in Korean martial arts and kyūsho-jutsu ( Japanese : 急所術 ) in various styles of Japanese martial arts . The concept of pressure points is present in old school (17th century) Japanese martial arts and is claimed to have an even earlier history; in a 1942 article in the Shin Budo magazine , Takuma Hisa asserted the existence of a tradition attributing the first development of pressure-point attacks to Shinra Saburō Minamoto no Yoshimitsu (1045–1127).
