I saw Ip Man 2 at the movies and in it the talked about it being bad to attack the midrib. I know the movie was about wing chun but we have a kyusho in that area thats name seems to give the idea of bad luck(?) can anyone give some incite into the history of this.

Butsumetsu = Buddha's Ruin. Is that what you are referring to?

One reference to it in Japanese culture, there was/is a system for planning important life events in Japan; Rokuyō (六曜). Butsumetsu is one of the six days. Any day designated as Butsumetsu was/is considered unlucky.

Thanks yes i understand that but i am more interested as to why this spot would be considered unlucky, apart from the obvious (It hurts), to strike here. Or is it simply that the name of it makes it unlucky.
