massively overated dont bother
i would suggest ppl train pressure point for ground work. it a great way to maipulate your opponent to open up ther defense.
also i dont know about anyone else but i target train some combos on my heavy bag certain areas of the body, Ears, eyes, nose, jaw/mouth, throat, solarplexus, knees, groin, under arms at the top of the ribs. just to name the basics.
its better to know several places to hit in a real fight instead of always looking for just 1 or 2 openings in their defense. when i spar and am at medium to close range it seems like people are always looking to strike the face and stomach, i know several other places to strike and i know how to take my time and set it up then when the oppertunity arises i take full advantage of it.
