The temple is known as the “meridian waiqi point” in Chinese medicine meridians, and it is also one of the first “dead points” listed as a key part by various martial arts boxing generics.
Shaolin boxing records that once the temple is pointed, the light faints, and the heavy dies. Modern medicine proves that hitting the temples can cause people to faint briefly or cause concussions to cause people to lose consciousness.
“Kung Fu Wushu Cool” now shares the temple striking techniques in traditional Chinese martial arts.
First, the position of the temples
The correct location of the temple is in the temporal region, between the tip of the eyebrow and the external canthus, and the depression about one finger backward is the temple (Figure 1).
Second, acupoint anatomy
