Nerve Strike

Nerve Strike

Atemi were precise unarmed strike against nerve centers. They were commonly taught among the Brotherhood of Shinsei, and often a component of some of their martial kiho. [1] Atemi often did no damage; most atemi were delivered by a single fingertip. Clever monks could use these techniques without initiating combat. Unfortunately, armor covered many of the vital nerve areas necessary for atemi. [2]
