My sensei has recently read Mr. Dillman's work on the application of pressure points to Karate kata (The Dillman Method of Pressure Point Fighting). He has experienced a revelation of sorts, and has begun to look for pressure points in Aikido techniques, and has found at least one pressure point application in every one. I'm convinced. I'm surprised that no one's told me about them before. Pressure points have always been in Aikido- one only need to look for them.
