Dim Mak (點脈) literally mean "press artery" more famously known as the Death Touch, is an attack on pressure points and meridians in some styles of Chinese martial arts used which is said to incapacitate or sometimes cause a delayed or even immediate death to an opponent.The points of attack used in Dim Mak correspond to the same locations as acupuncture points and other Chinese healing arts.

Adherents of Dim Mak say that its practitioners are capable of inflicting serious harm to an individual by disrupting their qi or energy flow throughout their meridian channels, causing stagnation of qi, which in turn can lead to injury or death.

The technique depends on the ability to strike precise locations along an appropriate meridian at an appropriate time of day during which specific points are "open" and are thus vulnerable to attack. In these circumstances, certain vital points move throughout the day, and must be struck in relation to their position in the body at that particular time of the day, taking into account the circadian rhythm and associated changes in blood flow on or near the skin surface to have the desired effect. Thus, it is an easy matter for a novice to learn the stationary vital points, but to understand and use the "fatal" moving points in combat is akin to a relatively inexperienced person who can see the electronic elements in a diagram, but without the deep understanding of what they do individually or with each other.

Dim Mak is a practice whose validity is often held in doubt, due to its effects, use, and apparent potency.


Founded by the late Grandmaster Chan Dau in the Guangdong province Yung Kay district of Canton in Southern China in the late 1930s. Chan was a student of Yu Mui (Hung Gar), monks at a nearby Buddhist monastery (Hop Gar), Jow Lung , and Tam Sam (Choy Li Fut). He established a school in Canton and later at the Sham Shui Po district of Kowloon, Hong Kong.

The tradition continues today in Hong Kong, by Chan Dau's son, Chan Ching and one of Chan Dau's prominent disciple, Paul Chan in Toronto, Canada.Some of the sets of this style include Drunken Eight Immortals and Drunken Fan, Lohon Kau Da, Lohon Kuen, Tei Saat Kuen.
