Hi Kevin

In Western Canada I have been taught to focus on the mechaical leverage and work on the form rather than getting the nerve point.

Similarily for Sankyo and Nikyo we have been told to focus on the affect on ukes body and center rather than the pain factor.

Of course each of these can produce pain.
