Pressure points

This article describes a generic form of fighting style. A generic form of fighting style can be assembled by comparisment of the different forms of martial arts (with common fighting stance) and using

  • returning attacks which focus on the vital body parts (nerve junction strikes, ...) [1],
  • regular attacks (some simple punches and kicks) which are used in all martial arts).

When assembled, it could simplify the learning of a sport (which is also useful for self-defense), reduce costs for training centres and egalise the level of training worldwide. and by discarding:

  • moves which are specific to one fighting art and which can not be used in most regular situations. This include moves that can only be performed if both fighters are in a certain (fighting arts-specific) fight stance, moves that assume the fighers are turned towards each other (back-attacks), moves that are too difficult to learn and execute on short notice, lethally or permanently damaging moves (to the attacker), ...
