Pressure Points

Can you use these at all in MMA? Would you be able to with gloves on at all? Would it be effective?

I know there's a few sweet spots like behind the jaw and things that make anyone cringe lol

Just wondering...

I think right in the hip area would be a good place to rub with your elbow to make em squirm

Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.

Pressure Points and small joint manipulations(fingers and toes) are not allowed in MMA.

There is a good point on the chin right below the lips, hit someone with a downward strike.

A lot of people confuse pressure points with nerve centres

a pressure point is anywhere that hurts when u apply pressure eg. the throat. nerve centres on the other hand are places where nerve endings group together eg. the side of you face or your shin

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.

I think there more interested in trying to land a konockout punch or kick rather than looking for a sneaky pressure point jab that would do little damage. But you never know.
