I would like to list a special striking point because most martial arts school charts do not list it. I feel that it should be listed, so that it may not be lost to time. It is one of the most powerful striking points on the front of the human body and directly on the center line of the human anatomy.
Listed on a few Chinese charts, Shanque or Ren # 8, ( the belly button) is known to some as the super chi point, The indications for this point are, Abdominal pain, borborygmus, flaccid type of apoplexy, prolapsed rectum, unchecked diarrhea.

The nerves, veins and arteries are different from Myojyo, The super chi point, supports the anterior branch of the tenth intercostal nerve rather than the eleventh. The vasculature: supports the inferior epigastria artery and vein.

The direction of the strike is straight through the belly button unlike Myojyo. The point may be struck at any time, because the element theory has no application to it. Although they share the same meridian, the muscular structure is covering Myojyo inhibits deep striking access to the Dan Tian which is located in front of the back bone and the organs, But Shanque is located just behind the navel and has little muscular structure, which access to nerves, arteries and veins easier to accomplish. Damage may also be caused to the small intestine do to rupture, may take place. A rupture to the small intestine may infect the body’s systems and cause a very painful slow death. The technique of the bent or L shaped toe kick would be necessary to learn to perform straight access to the belly button but the one, two or middle knuckle fist, the thumb fist the one and two finger fist can be used, when trained. So the above (navel point) is, in my opinion, the more dangerous of the two. This can be checked by applying quick thumb pressure first to Myojyo and later to Shanque. The end result is that Shanque has a more dramatic effect using less power. Higher training is necessary if you wish to use Shanque as a striking point. As a press point, much training is needed to use it.

The chart notes, from grand master Soken, clearly show that strikes to Myojyo, have effects to nerves, blood vessels and organs depending on the depth and severity of the strike. But after investigation and testing, you may want to add Shanque to your arsenal.

From time to time, I may add a point to the discussion that the karate and the kung fu communities may not be aware of, in hopes that you the reader will be enhanced by the new material.
