Pressure points too hard for application.

I think that the principle of hitting certain areas to disrupt the flow of ki is extremely useful. It can let us know where and when we should strike... But most pressure points are just too hard to strike in a real confrontation... even if your opponent sucks, he'll be moving in some way, trying to avoid getting hurt, and probably be wearing something, so IMHO, it's not really practical to try to hit exact points... just weaker areas, etc...
