George Dillman, Pressure Points and Knockouts

Today we present to you another George Dillman video in which he describes and demonstrates his theories.

For me, the start of the video and the demonstrations where actually interesting and the applications can probably have some truth in them. However, he also included some of his no knockout stuff towards the end which I don’t agree with.

What do you think of the video?

Interesting topic. While I see the advantage of knowing pressure points and grabs/holds to take advantage of them - I tend to stop listening when "magical" stuff starts happening.

I did a post on Dim Mak that one of Dillman's students was pedaling a while back here: http://myselfdefenseblog.com/http:/myselfdefenseblog.com/the-death-touch-does-it-exist/

You got to have a sense of humor to watch this stuff I say. :)

Honestly it doesn't matter what you think about the video, it's a demonstration (that you don't have to watch), and it's part of the martial art he is familiar with. And to go ahead and fill you in, the applications do have truth to them and are very useful. Though he only showed a few pressure points/techniques, there are thousands in ryukyu kempo. Also, since Dillman is one of the greatest masters of martial arts alive today, you should feel privileged to have even witnessed any of his stylings. Oh and for the haters, my source is myself. I have been around ryukyu kempo for about four years now, and have trained in the art for two and a half years. Recently became a 2nd degree Black Belt.

i have studied the martial arts since I was 16 yrs old and am now 60 yrs old.... many times i walked away from a instructor or school because I knew that they were incompetent teachers and really only knew and understood movements but the depth of their knowledge was limited.... I finally located a student of one of George Dillman's students who held a high degree and was so happy that I finally found the truth rather than the stupid stuff purported by so many other teachers and schools... i read these derogatory comments and realize that it is only a incompetent jealous martial artist who has a hard time accepting that his art is incomplete and his knowledge lacking... I personally think dillman is a ego maniac but as far as knowledge and skill that are few the are in his league... i have studied with korean and japanese grand masters that had less to offer than Mr. Dillman has.
