Kyusho Jitsu Study is a Calling

“Kyusho Jitsu Study is a Calling.” This was said to me by my senior Black Belt back at my dojo in Canada Riccardo Pappini may years ago. “Kyusho Jitsu Study is a Calling.”

We were talking about how hard the class can be for some people, yet how very easily others acclimatize to it. I never forget when he said this. Now Master Rick is a 6th Dan Black Belt in my system of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido, and also a 5th Dan Black Belt in Kyusho Jitsu. He is still a Kyusho student of Grand Master Steve Stewart and a signature on the KJWA Black Belt Certificates.

He knows all too well what it takes to get the things you want in your life and the dedication required to do it. There is no easy martial arts, no quick fix self defense system that actually works, it all take time and effort to be successful. Like anything else in life.

Everything I teach and the way I teach it makes an assumption you are a martial artist. Level is not so important as consistent effort. Kyusho is a wonderful addition to the study of any martial art style or system. It fits everywhere because it is hidden in all styles.

Right now if you are interested you can test drive our Kyusho Jitsu GOLD Membership for One Month Entirely FREE. You don’t need a credit card to sign up, and after one month it automatically cancels unless you re-enroll in the program. This is the beginning of a REAL pressure points / kyusho jitsu education with the opportunity to grade if you chose too.

Kyusho Jitsu World Video Archives Repository

Laptop with reel

Back about 10 days ago I began construction on a new website which will host all of our videos from over the years. Now I am not referring to the Certification Courses, but the video series we have been selling for many years.

The reason is, that often times many of our members and students are not aware that this stuff even exists. So since we have a site dedicated to the eBooks, we now have a site for the videos.

Now this is awesome because it is a secure site (https) and is also a membership site. Once you purchase any video you have an account created so you can return to view or download at any time. This also gives you access to “promotions” that the general public will never see. All ‘new’ videos will be available here also as they go online.

There will be lots of great little hidden surprises and gems too! Right now until Monday there is a special price as part of the launch of the website on the Kyusho Jitsu Knockout Mini Course.

The feedback from those students who have purchased it has been fantastic! Until Monday you can get this 10 video series, which totals about 40 minutes of play ( short lessons) for ONLY $2.97! The normal price is $37

Plus I ever have a 30 day money back guarantee on it. If you are not happy, email me within 30 days of purchase and I will refund you!

Check out the offer and the website at the link below!

Upgrades to our Kyusho Jitsu University Memberships

I have been very very busy these last few days doing may different upgrades to not just our servers, but our memberships also. My latest was the addition of podcasts to our Gold Membership at Kyusho Jitsu University.

Now this is a REAL distance learning course, a way to get from beginner to master level in the pressure point art and science of Kyusho Jitsu, but also to obtain a Black Belt along the way if you chose to! The course has the same curriculum as the courses I teach in dojo, plus many extras to help make up for not being in the room together.

The podcasts will be used as a way to supplement the teaching, answer questions that the entire group may benefit from, plus much more!

Here is a sample! Take a listen!

Right now I am offering a One Month Free Test Drive of our GOLD Membership with no obligation to continue and no credit card required at sign up!

Kyusho Jitsu World – University and Upgrades

Pretty brunette ready to kick

This has been a very LONGGGGGGGG day for me.  We have had some issues with our servers, mostly due to the increase in traffic. Some of you may have noticed that they get a white screen or error 500 on the Kyusho Jitsu University Members Site and Site I am using for different promotions.

That has been resolved with a massive upgrade. However we did lose some people in the Kyusho Jitsu GOLD Membership Test Drive. I added everyone back manually, I hope i got everyone!

If I did not please let me know!

Now I am also running an amazing special on learning to do Kyusho Knockouts. If you want to learn more follow the link below!

The Reasons YOU Should Become a Certified Kyusho Jitsu Instructor.

Kyusho Jitsu Study Groups

My dream was to be a martial arts teacher and school owner. And I realized that dream in 2000 when I opened my own school after 16 years with my teacher, running locations for him.

But I soon discovered just how hard it really was.

Now I did not want a part time school in the basement of a Church. There is nothing wrong with that idea, but I wanted a full time business, doing what I love to do, and making a decent living doing it.

I had been in retail for many years before. Working with the public is difficult! But the martial arts biz is even more challenging! Not only do you have to provide a GREAT service to them, but you also have to MOTIVE them to get off the couch and come to class! After a hard day of work, that can be difficult!

Now that applies to parent of junior students too. WE often lost kids because the parents just don’t want to go out. So we needed high energy, exciting classes that provide great benefits to the kids so that mom and dad stay motivated to keep coming.

But adult students are even harder. Adult classes starting at 7 or 8 in the evening, well it takes some serious motivation to get things moving.  Then I discovered Kyusho Jitsu.

When I first introduced it in class, especially with us being as focused on self defense as we are it was a big hit! The students wanted to learn more and more. Even in sport oriented schools and clubs, adult students LOVE self defense classes.

SO I decided to do a study group at my school and see how it went. I signed up 12 almost immediately and we began to do monthly classes on a Saturday. The classes were 3 hours and the fee was $60 per month.

With all the challenges of running a school, that extra $720 per month was WONDERFUL! That paid my personal rent! After the first year I continued with that group in advanced sessions and began a new Novice Group.

To this day, 14 years later I still have many of those students in my school, and in my groups. One of those first study group members is running my groups in Canada now!

How is that for positive affect and retention of adult students? What is funny is that I did not try to expand the program either. I just took 10 per year. There was so much more I could have done!

How do you become a Certified Kyusho Jitsu Teacher? Easy! You can either purchase the certification programs outright and get started.

Or enroll in our Kyusho Jitsu World University Diamond Membership Program.
