Revamp this articleEdit

I would be interested in rewriting this article for accuracy, not hearsay. I am an expert in the field. However I look at this from a logical and object view giving references to western medicine also. But I will not bother to do the work if it will only be deleted.

There are many references to atemi as vital point striking in styles of Jujutsu, but there are also some techniques called "Tengu", translated as "Goblin's Grip", which referred to holding and squeezing, rather than striking.

gripping or direct pressure to vital points strikes to vital points


from "A General Course in Jiu Jitsu" by Col. Risher W. Thornberry, 1933: "Jiu-jitsu has a weapon in the form of Ate-mi, or (Vital touches), which may be administered with the thumb, the clenched hand, the elbows, the toes, the edge of the hand, or even with the head. The effects of these touches range from a temporary paralysis of the arm to complete suspension of vital process and death." — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:37, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
