Are there special techniques you could use to defend yourself quickly, effectively and safely …irrespective of your sex, size or age?
The answer is : YES!
Self Defence Pressure Points
In pressure points self defence, below are some aspects of the art that are taught.
- The first is to use one pressure point that will do the job sufficiently. This involves choosing the correct point for the job, taking into account your height, level of strength and proficiency in the art.
- A combination of two or more pressure points can be chosen to amplify the defence, to physically disable your attacker so you cannot be harmed.
- Which point to choose? How will that point help you? Is it going to be punched or kicked? Or is it going to be squeezed?
Important considerations for self defence
Dim mak focuses on accuracy, timing, and ‘efficiency’ when delivering a telling blow in self defence. As we age we naturally tend to lose speed, power and agility; however with correct training, accuracy and efficiency, you can improve with age and experience thus putting the odds back in your favour.
It is not just purely about the pressure points; it is also about how certain pressure points should be hit or seized in a quick and accurate way; and how to move to apply the points for maximum effectiveness. These secret techniques were only taught to a few privileged masters. You can be one of the few people in the world today who will know how to use pressure points correctly.
The movements of dim mak do not require great flexibility or agility so you can continue training to a very advanced age. You can also adapt your particular style of martial arts self defence with DM.
The biggest benefit of learning dim mak is that it will enable you to become a better fighter even as you get older. It was created to enable an older, slower or weaker practitioner to defeat a younger, stronger and faster aggressor. Imagine how much more effective you will be if you incorporate its principles into your self defence programme.

Healing Art in Dim Mak Pressure Points
In dim mak‘s ancient China, the healing arts and the martial arts went hand in hand. Then martial arts was practised more for survival and less as a recreation, although its benefits in maintaining health was always given full recognition.
Injuries, both minor and serious, resulting from life or death confrontations or from practice sessions were common place. It is clear that anyone who did not understand how to treat injuries and prevent illness were not going to get very far as a martial artist.
The old masters were also adept in the arts of nutrition, devising diets that would enhance the health and performance of their students. Training was often rigorous, everyday, and up to 8 hours a day, and only those in the very best condition of health could keep up with the relentless pace of training.
It is easy to see why superior skills in the healing arts would often translate into victory in the combat arena and the success of a school. Hence these secrets were just as closely guarded as their combat techniques. Even today, where competitive sports is concerned, little has changed. For example, professional football clubs boast of their superior team of physiotherapists, dietitians and medical experts.
