The Stomach 11 point is located in the cavity just lateral to the jugular notch between the sternocleidomastoid muscle and the clavicle. Pressing in on this point can stimulate a branch of the vagus nerve and the supraclavicular nerves leading to increased parasympathetic stimulation of the heart. Thus, this point is useful when pressed prior to striking the cranial nerves. This point is also very useful during grappling maneuvers and can be pressed to cause a profound withdrawal reflex. This point should be stimulated in a downward direction.
