    I was going through some stuff and i found a list of all maek chi ki and maek cha ki pressure point names, the meridians and the translations that was given to me by a former instructor to help me remember them, so i thought i'd re-type the list and post it on here for you guys to use or hand to your students if you feel the need.

    hope it's of some asistance. certainly jogged my memory when i was typing them.

    i can't verify how correct these are as i didn't research them all but maek cha ki no. 2 is a front kick to the knee. so it would make sense that the pressure point would be eye of the knee... :) :confused:

    I like to call the pressure point for MCK#2, coffee table #1. I've got a coffee table at just the right height and when I hit that sucker I can barely walk.

    It was the front of the knee that was called the eye of the knee. IIRC it also had a name referring to cow. The pressure points are to either side of the patella, if you bend the knee they look like eyes or cow-nostrils.

    I asked KJn Harmon for clarification on this, before class, he said "the strike is not ON the patella, but slightly lower"

    that kick is on the tendon just below the patella and is executed at an angle that is meant to cause the patella to move up in a "shear" like motion. If you remember having the doctor tap that area to cause a knee jerk reaction to check your reflexes, this strike is a more brutal version of that same type of hit. Like I said before, there is a reasonable medical implication for most "pressure point" strikes. By avoiding defining skills like that in anything other than korean names/ideas/theories, certainly adds to the "mystique", but it also keeps the english speaking practioner from fully understanding. I'm not sure that is purely coincindental.

    My instructor, KJN Alex Suh, teaches it as below the knee rather than on it.

    It is very similar to a Muy Thai move, where you bring the inside of your foot up to the same position, shoving the patella forceably away from the rest of the knee. Its tendon-ripping-arific.

    Thank you very much for posting this. I'm incorporating it into
