The interest, curiosity and fascination with Dim Mak or "death touch" training and information has exploded since the discovery of several ancient chinese manuscripts and the introduction of acupuncture and acupressure into the west.
In recent years Dim Mak has been exploited, investigated, studied, debated and glamorized by the television and the movie industries.
Yet, even as in the past, it has still been a very guarded, shrouded and misunderstood subject. Often only taught to select few, and only after they had proven themselves through years of dedication to the warrior training arts.
As pointed out in the main page of this section, there are several good reason behind the suppression of these techniques and concepts.
1. On one side is the legal, moral and ethical implications of executing these techniques and/or concepts.
2. On the other hand is the total reliance on a belief that by learning a few concepts, or knowing the specific dim-mak martial arts pressure points, you have somehow have gained an extraordinary ability to defeat an opponent.
3. The possibility that this knowledge can be as dangerous to the victim as to their attacker, especially if a person is not properly trained.
These thing must be taken into consideration prior to, during and after the exploration of different dim-mak and/or 'death touch' training, concepts, and techniques.

Thus the creation of the dim mak 'death touch' page. Together we will examine the history, concepts and ideas of, the often controversial and misunderstood, Dim-Mak 'death touch' Training.
