Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned veteran, everyone with any experience in martial arts is aware that there a certain targets on the body that, if attacked, can cripple the opponent beyond his or her capacity to fight. At the highest end of that spectrum is, of course, nerve strikes. One of the more esoteric fighting techniques one could ever encounter, it takes years to familiarize oneself with how to properly attack such minute targets, along with the proper sequence of doing so, and delivering the desired impact upon the opponent. Masters of this internal side of martial arts are the most respected and feared fighters in the world, and to achieve their level of perfection is the fantasy of all martial artists around the world.
But then, why take the stealth route of striking nerves and pressure points to disable the opponent when the perfect target to finish off the enemy is right between their legs? Master Ken, founder of the highly regarded modern system Ameri-Do-Te, is a firm believer in the groin grab – ripping the opponents genitals from their body to incapacitate them and render them incapable of continuing their attack. And it is an attack that no master of martial arts, however wise or experienced, can avoid. Indeed, Master Ken is so confident in the effectiveness of the groin grab that he often has his students spar with the groin being the only permitted target for them to attack. It’s a strategy that martial artists of all styles can learn from – narrow their focus to the perfect target and chase after it until the enemy is defeated. It is this fighting philosophy that makes Ameri-Do-Te the only truly flawless martial art in existence!
