Dim Mak ("death touch") is the Chinese term for the skill of striking pressure points on the human body. Pressure points are those which affect a person's nervous or circulatory system, and are the same points used in the healing arts of acupuncture and acupressue. They are located all over the body. Striking these points can cause anything from disabling pain to death. Many Asian and Asian-influenced martial arts incorporate training in this skill. Arts which especially concentrate on pressure-point strikes include Varma Kalai and Shorinji Kempo. The Japanese term for Dim Mak is kyusho jutsu.
