Best Answer

They are essentially the exact same thing. Dim Mak is Chinese and Kyusho is Japanese. The meanings of the names are different however they both involve using acupuncture or acupressure points on the body. The Martial Arts aspect is to strike, press, or rub these points on the human body to cause pain and/or knock-outs. Some practitioners may also use Dim Mak and/or Kyusho for its healing aspects as well. Depending on the instructor, they may also include cycle and other theory which is used in traditional Chinese medicine.
