Our customer reviews "I've found most of the reviews here rather offensive! Montaigue must be doing something right to piss off so many people! I agree with an another reviewer that his teaching methods are eclectic but then so what? This does not make them wrong! I've never heard Montaigue advocate killing anyone. Book ratings by Goodreads.

Dim-Mak Death-Point Striking - Erle Montaigue
The touch of death or death-point striking refers to any martial arts technique reputed to kill using seemingly less than lethal force targeted at specific areas of the body. Tales of its use are often found in the Wuxia genre of Chinese martial arts fiction. Dim mak is depicted as a secret body of knowledge with techniques that attack pressure points and meridians , said to incapacitate or sometimes cause immediate or even delayed death to an opponent. Little scientific or historical evidence exists for a martial arts "touch of death", although it has been confirmed that trauma may cause disproportionately catastrophic consequences when applied to known pressure points under specific circumstances. The concept known as vibrating palm originates with the Chinese martial arts Neijing "internal" energy techniques that deal with the qi energy and the type of force jin used. It is depicted as "a technique that is part psychic and part vibratory, this energy is then focused into a wave".
