Vital Spot No: 25
Solar Plexus (myong chi)
This is the soft point found in the centre of the chest, just below the xiphoid process.
Even a light blow to this area will shock the diaphragm, which will result in the recipient being unable to draw breath.
A powerful blow can injure the stomach and liver, may cause internal bleeding and can result in unconsciousness.
This point has very little protection, such as a covering of bone or muscle, which results in it being extremely vulnerable to attack.
This point is located on the centre line of the body at the lower end of the breastbone.
The xiphoid process is a small piece of cartilage at the lower end of the sternum.
A powerful rising blow to this point will bruise the heart, liver, and stomach. The result of this bruising will be unconsciousness, possibly even death.
