How dedicated are you to really learning, really mastering the science of pressure point self defense?? If the answer is that you want to be the very best, then the Kyusho Jitsu University Coaching Program maybe exactly what you are looking for!

When someone is truly serious about success, then they need to find a "personal mentor" or coach. Someone who is there, and spends time directly with them to inspire and answer questions. 

What is the Kyusho Jitsu University Coaching Program?

Over the years I have had to "mentors" or coaches. This is different from the instructor of teacher you have in a Dojo environment. 

My first coach was Grand Master Stephen Oliver. I had just left my full time, very well paying job at Chrysler Canada to run my Dojo full time. I need to quantum leap my business understanding otherwise I was sure to fail. 

This was a great experience! We did coaching calls, I was allow to attend any of his many seminars, which were expensive FREE! I also had unlimited email access to him. He put everything into this program! And it cost me $1000 per month USD.

Then in 2007 I began Grand Master Keith Hafner's Coaching Program. This was only $500 per month but was worth much more! The reason I wanted to do this one over GM Oliver's was not the price. I did it because I could drive to Ann Arbor to attend monthly full day classes.  Ann Arbor was a 60 minute drive. Denver was a 5 hour flight!

These coaching programs helped get me to where I am today! But I had to do the work!

Our Kyusho Jitsu University Coaching Program

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense?

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense?

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense Large Intestine 18

That is a GREAT question! What are the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense? The answer is not black and white, and I have done years of research to come up with a conclusion! 

So let's get into it and talk about the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense!

What are the criteria?

First we need to look at what criteria I used to determine the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense. Not all pressure points when it comes to self defense are created equally! There are many pressure points that work very well on pretty much everyone tested. But there "EFFECT" is minimal therefore in self defense they are not much use!

As an example, LU-8 and HT-06. These pressure points when used together will cause a release of both the wrist and the hand! I have never met ANYONE that I could not make this work on! But the problem is on the street "buddy" is gonna be punching my face in while I am working these points! 

Therefore they are not the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense!

How did I decide?

The next question is how did I decide on the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense? 

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Making Pressure Points Work!

Criteria

  • They must have a high rate of reliability on as many different types of people as possible. I typically look for a 90% effective rate!
  • They must be stand alone pressure points that do not require setup or assistance from other strikes to be effective.
  • The result of stimulation must be predictable!
  • They must have a pronounced effect on the attacker, a valuable effect!
What is a Valuable Effect?

A valuable effect is when a strike or manipulation will cause the attacker to be:

  1. Unconscious
  2. Unable to use a limb due to paralysis
  3. Or unable to continue the attack

Without these kinds of effects the pressure point in question cannot be included in this list! Other pressure points can be used in lower escalation situations, which is not the purpose of this list. I am also excluding "deadly" pressure point because they are in a category of their own!

Does Pain Count?

For the purpose of the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense pain is only counted when it is high enough to override the rush of adrenaline the attacker is experiencing! Pain only matters when it is crippling!

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense

Easy Integration

Plus all these Best Pressure Points for Self Defense must be easily integrated into any root art or self defense system! The idea behind the science of pressure point self defense is not to change the martial art you currently study. The purpose is to enhance its effectiveness!

That is the something our teaching at the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance has accomplished! 

ALL new Video!

And some great news! On Friday I am going to be releasing an all new video on the Top 10 Best Pressure Points for Self Defense. In this video I will not JUST list these pressure points but give you real information on how to strike or manipulate them. What the correct angle and direction is. I will do into great detail the exactly how to impediment them! This video cover it all!

For the next few weeks coming I am going to be doing a "special" on the status of self defense in the martial arts world, and also in general. I have many concerns of what is be taught today, as well as HOW it is being taught!

Self Defense Solutions

The streets today are very different than they have ever been in time. Today there are large groups of people with very extreme views and violence especially in the west can erupt without notice. Therefore a new approach or paradigm is needed. 

Self Defense is Under Attack

Self Defense Solutions

Every incident where self defense is called for is different. An attack is like a separate living entity with its own "conscious." You need to be prepared! There are no "quick fixes" and there is no one fits all solution. In fact a lot of what is taught is dangerous. 

There are many different aspect to be learned and when these are ignored your chances of success and even survival are diminished! 

These are:
  1. What does the LAW say? This will vary by country and region. You need to know these laws even when you travel! Otherwise you could be charged and be the one ending up in prison! This is not black and white and requires understanding!
  2. How much trouble are you in? What is the level of attack, and/or escalation point? You are only allowed to use reasonable force to end an attack. You must know exactly what this is! Therefore each level is different and handled different!

To name a few!

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

There are solutions and I have one of the very best available to you! Why is mine better than 99% of them? Because I have had the experience and done the research on top of this to understand what is really happening!

How Kyusho Works [Pressure Points]

How Kyusho Works

How Kyusho Works

How Kyusho Works

So, how does Kyusho Jitsu Work? Today I am going to go into details on exactly how Kyusho Works, with a real NO BS answer for you! So hang on tight and lets get to the truth of exactly how Kyusho works!

The first thing I need to do is to define "what a pressure point is." Every Kyusho Jitsu teacher I know of teaches this, after which things can become confusing for the student. 

What is a pressure point?

A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve terminates or comes to an end. Where a nerve crosses over or under another nerve.  Or where a nerve branches off into as an example a "Y."

Free Kyusho Information

The Lung Meridian

So what does this tell you? It gives you a clear path to understanding "How Kyusho Works" because as I hope you see from this, Kyusho Jitsu is "nerve" strikes. For some reason today that is NOT understood and has been lost in the Chinese Medical approach to teaching. 

How Kyusho Works - Eastern Medicine

The stand approach for instructors teaching the science of pressure point self defense is the "eastern" or "Chinese" medical approach.  And there is a VERY good reason for doing this! But I will get into that later in the article. 

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Eastern Medicine

However, this does cause issues! There are many people in the west, and today this is the bulk of martial artists, who blindly believe anything medical science in the west has to say today.  I call this brainwashing! Why? Because over the 50 plus years of my life their "facts" always change as new information comes to light!

The real truth is,when it comes to biology there is "probability" not FACT because ever person is different. Therefore a questioning mind is needed for anything. Because someone is a "doctor" does not make them perfect! There are great doctors, and bad doctors, like anything else is the world!

Now with that out of the way, the eastern approach which I still teach today is based on "reverse" acupuncture. Does it work? Yes it does and very effectively! 

BUT, it is only part of the equation! 

How Kyusho Works - Western Medicine

In my teaching I spend a lot of time explaining Kyusho Jitsu from the western, nerve strike point of view. A while back I had a martial arts master, who was a "disbeliever" in Kyusho Jitsu say to me, "if it is just nerves strikes why do we need Kyusho?"

The Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

The Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

I did not bother to explain it to him. His mind is closed like so many today, and I have better things to do that try to change minds.

When I teach Kyusho with references to western medicine I do so in very simply terms, that allow the student to relate to something we understand in our western cultures. Plus I also encourage them to ask their doctor about the things I explain.

Why do I keep it simple? Because it is important to relate Kyusho Jitsu with how the body functions, but students unless they are interested do not need a detailed breakdown of the functions of the nervous and vascular systems.  

Knowledge and Ego

Knowledge and Ego

I am not interested in showing off my intelligence.  I am too old for ego crap! Therefore I am interested in making strong, confident and knowledgeable students! 

How Kyusho Works - both disciplines

When it come to understanding how Kyusho works both disciplines are needed. For some people who tend to be "left brained" they need the western approach! It appeals to their logical minds.  For the person who is "right brained" this information does not help them. In fact it will turn them off! 

They need the more creative eastern approach to bring them to an understanding their more creative mind can see. The right brained person tends to see more in pictures, therefore seeing energy flow in a meridian will help them learn and apply more than thinking about the "occipital" nerve. 

Side Note
How Kyusho Works

How Kyusho Works

Let me be blunt here! Some martial arts teachers like turning off students and getting them to quit! They somehow in their myopic minds think that this makes them important! Sorry, reaching the student is the GOAL! Not making them quit!

This is why at Kyusho Jitsu University and with courses like our Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course teach both disciplines! And this is why my success rate teaching Kyusho Jitsu and getting them to Black Belt range, and master levels is so high.

It also means I need to be available for FULL support of my students and their questions, which I am! The ultimate of this is our Coaching Program.  

How Kyusho Works - The Middle Way
Kyusho Jitsu Cycle of Emotions - Control Emotions

The Middle Way

The very best approach for the average person to learning the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu in experiencing and learning from both words. Focus on one without the other, until a master level is reached is a BIG mistake. 

Why? Because the goal of the teaching and learning is application!  Another big issue I see in the martial art instructors world this that their way is the only way! I have been blessed at being successful in every self defense incident I have had in my life.

What is success? I am still here! However I do know that what works for one may not work for another. Therefore a broad range of teaching is required! Every student is different and systems needs to be in place to help them all reach success. 

How Kyusho Works?

It works by striking or manipulating a pressure point or nerve on the body. The over-stimulation causes a, what is hope, is a predictable result in the humane body. Causing unconsciousness or paralysis in a limb, drop or blood pressure etc....

When incorporated into a martial art style or system it can increase the effectiveness of the art thereby increasing the odds of success in an altercation.

In conclusion today I want to leave you with a thought. When you are communicating with anyone, always assume they have something to teach you. It might be something to do, or something not to do. But everyone has something to teach you!

Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

What is the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions? How does it work? On the surface it is a very simply cycle. Application of it is however a little more complicated. So let me explain.

Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

The breakdown of the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions is as follows:

  1. Happiness destroys Anger
  2. Anger destroys Grief
  3. Grief destroys Happiness

The cycle is also referring to extremes of emotion. Which complicates its usage. 

The Kyusho Cycle of Emotions and YOU

The first issue with the application of the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions is that you, the defending need to be in control of you emotions. This is not an easy task and requires serious practice to achieve. 

Kyusho Jitsu Cycle of Emotions - Control Emotions

Kyusho Jitsu Cycle of Emotions - Control Emotions

In a demonstration it is very easy to use the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions because it is a controlled environment. So as an example you have the Uki attack you after working up some anger, then you hit him at ST-05 while laughing at him and you will have a DEEP Neurological Knockout

Pretty cool eh? But as you can imagine to laugh at someone trying to hurt you would not be easy. FEAR is the normal psychological response. The fight or flight reflex kicks in.  Now you may be able to defense yourself no problems. But changing the "emotional" state you are in is different. That is a big challenge! Plus it needs to be pure, not just an ego mask!

Therefore it is a idea good to understand the physiological happening of what are emotions to get a real understanding of how this works.

Emotional State of Attacker
Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

You also need to understand the emotional state of the attacker in order to apply the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions! The automatic assumption is that the person is angry. But that is not always the case!

It really depends on how bad your luck is! Let's take a look at different metal conditions and the associated emotions that come into play. And if we are honest with ourselves, and when we speak of self defense we must be honest because mental illness has become an epidemic problem today.

So let's break this down!

Psychopaths
Psychosis and Self Defense

Psychosis and Self Defense

The issue here is emotionally Psychopaths are not influenced by other people emotions. Therefore if one attacks you he or she will feel nothing for you. This can cause the attack to be very robotic, and unemotional. Therefore the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions is not really going to be applicable. You can make a Psychopath angry by attacking his or her ego. 

But that is likely to make the situation far worse! There certainly are ways to defend yourself against a Psychopath using the science of pressure point self defense. But the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions is OUT!

Also a psychopath does not have a conscience!

Sociopaths

The sociopath is a very interesting person. They can also be hands down the most dangerous. They are capable of attacking someone, even killing them with little to no emotional association at all. However not all Sociopaths are interested in doing harm to others. 

A Sociopath does have a conscience, but it is very weak. Here is a great reference on the difference between the Psychopath and the Sociopath

Depression
Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

This is one of the most common forms of mental illness today.  It has been linked to dozens of mass shootings in the USA and is also not very well understood. Depression on its own is not going to be a cause of violence. However there are other factors that come into play.

Because depression can basically cripple someone and destroy their lives they can become very resentful inside. This can lead to problems if they decide to act out their resentment on someone who they view is the cause. In this case anger does come into play!

This can also be complicated and has been complicated by the medication the person is taking.  Here is another read for you on Depression and Violence.

Kyusho Cycle of Emotions

So what does all this have to do with Kyusho Cycle of Emotions? Very easy! As powerful a principle as this is, it is NOT one you should put a lot of reliance on! I would not depend on this one to get you out of trouble! Better to stick to the basics, and understand how conflict and escalation work! 

If you would like to learn more about the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions I have a great video series on the 10 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu. These together will give you a solid foundation to build on in self defense! Here is a LINK to learn more!

If you find the topic interesting I have an eBook on the Psychology of Self Defense. One part of the Kyusho Cycle of Emotions that is very valuable to study is the control of YOUR emotions in a conflict. That is well worth the work!

Psychology of Self Defense

Psychology of Self Defense

Please note I am not targeting in anyway people with any of the above conditions or others. However as martial artist and martial art teachers we need to understand what is happening in our environment. The more people understand mental illness the better! Our goal as martial arts teachers is to help.

You cannot help what you do not understand. Ignorance is a bad choice. 

Solutions?

There are solutions to the self defense issue! Today many martial arts are sport oriented and there is nothing with that! As long as the student realizes that this does NOT properly prepare them for the street!

It certainly can help in a bar fight, but self defense is not a bar fight! Plus age and time tend to take their own tole.  Therefore preparation is a must! But I do have a great solution for you!

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

There is nothing scarier than dealing with Self Defense for Knife Attacks. The average person will never be in a more deadly position.  Some will say that guns are far worse. However that is like comparing apples to oranges. Guns are not close range weapons, and when you are dealing with them, they are far less complex.

Why? Because bullets go straight. Self Defense for Knife Attacks is also not what most people think, or what most people are taught. There is no room for the error of underestimation. It is the most deadly threat the average person will ever see. 

Self Defense for Knife Attacks [Systems]

Over the years I have seen many knife experts show what they know. These tend to be combat style systems which are basically "knife fighting." Yeah, NO that is a BAD IDEA!

Sorry, but your view might work for you, but the odds are you have never been attacked with a real knife!  The vast number of misconceptions taught to people in knife defense is overwhelming! Police and military like to talk about theirs odds of survival but I am talking to the average citizen. Not a specialist! 

Things Never to Do!

Here is a list of things never to do in a knife defense situation. 

  1. Try to disarm the attacker! DO NOT DO THIS! It is suicide no matter how good you think you are, or how well trained you are. Any disarm needs to as a result of the attackers arm begin crippled, or the attacker being knocked out. 
  2. Do not grab the arms and try to grapple with the attacker! I know someone personally had the knife stuck into them trying to do this! Unless you are a "specialist" this is not for you! 
  3. If the knife is dropped do not pick it up! Kick it away or better yet, if possible get out of dodge as fast as you can!
Misconceptions about Knife Attacks

Misconceptions about Knife Attacks

Now this is ONLY a picture. But if this was real this woman has a "death wish." He can grab her with his free hand and stick that knife right in her throat! If she got him down, time to flee!

Things to do!
  1. Keep move, try to get away and if you cannot get to the side, away from the knife. You need to protect your vulnerable body!
  2. Do not focus on the knife, but make sure you can always see it! You need to see the entire attacker. Remember the attacker has 2 hands and contrary to popular believe he or she will gladly punch you! 
  3. Use the environment as much as possible to create a barrier between you and the attacker. Do not engage unless there is no choice!
  4. Talk to the attacker and try to take control of the situation. If he or she has not stuck the knife into you it is because they have no yet decided to kill you. Buy time with communications.

Self Defense for Knife Attacks - Training Knife

There are some very specific ways to train to deal with Knife Attacks.  They are not exciting, but these are critical for survival! These are some basic steps. The subject is far to complex for a single post. 

  1. Train your verbal skills! These are critical. If you can use "words" to deescalate the situation this is the ONLY real win.
  2. Train with STEEL blades not plastic or wood. The unconscious mind must be trained in order to be successful! The brain reacts differently to steel over plastic and wood. Make sure it looks real too. Black ones are not the best for training. Having it shinny is better. You want to impress this image into your subconscious mind. Different sizes are good too.
  3. Train to escape, not engage! There maybe times when there is no choice, but for the average person escape is always best! I have a really good eBook on knife training you may wish to checkout here. 
Surviving the Threat

Surviving the Threat

Knife Fighting Reality

I have trained knife fighting too! It is fun, and well worth the development of the skills. But there are things you need to remember! The first thing is when you pull out the knife, your plea of self defense is GONE. It is very hard to prove self defense when you are packing a knife! If you don't believe me pay attention to court and other news.

When I lived in Canada I carried a knife. But I would never tell anyone it was for "self defense." In Canada it is ILLEGAL to carry a knife for self defense, or anything else. But I ate a lot of apples! And I made sure there was apply residue on the knife! 

And pulling the knife would be a LAST resort!

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

Knife fighting on the street is the roll of a dice with your life, and your freedom! The minute this happens your life is changed forever. In the Dojo is one thing. The streets are different. Even if you win you still lose!

Develop Real Skills

Self Defense for Knife Attacks requires a very special kind of training. The training needs to cover a lot of ground, and remain simple! The object is to end the threat fast and get away! Then turn things over to the police. They are trained to deal with this. For them being a police officer is and LIFE choice!

We are now launching 3 new courses at Kyusho Jitsu University, one of which is going to deal with knife attacks [guns and other weapons too]. It is our Humane Pressure Point Tactics Courses.

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

This is a 3 Level Instructor certification course, however anyone even none martial artists will find it of great importance!  The first level covers low escalation, dealing with a confrontation before it becomes violent. Using preemptive measures to remove a "disruptive" or aggressive person before things become BAD.

Level two deals with how to handle situations once violence has ensured! Level Three covers the introduction of a weapon, or multiple attackers.

Right now before June 15th you can get these course, one or all at a greatly reduced price! Follow the link below for more details about the courses, and the costs associated with them

If you have not already done so, be sure to read our article on the 13 Misconceptions of Knife Attacks. This was written by former [retired] Detroit Police Officer Kara Borshuk.

 This is one of the most important articles you will ever read! She had to deal with knives on many occasions. This is a must read!

How does the science of pressure point self defense, Kyusho Jitsu fit in with Self Defense for Knife Attacks? It along with proper self defense training, like H.P.P.T [Humane Pressure Point Tactics] gives you the tools to end the threat FAST!

Website Support System Issues
Kyusho Jitsu World Support Ticket System

Kyusho Jitsu World Support Ticket System

We have been having some issues with out "support ticket" system. There also seem to be software bugs as I am not the only person using the software with these issue. I have very few request for support, so in the meantime I am just going to have to manually check.

What is happening is first I am not getting notification of tickets being submitted. Then it locks the ticket and I cannot reply!  So as you can imagine this is very frustrating for anyone submitting a ticket!

But I will get it fixed! Thank you for your patience!

Romanian Martial Arts Training Camp

Romanian Martial Arts Training Camp

We are about 6 weeks away from the RMATC! I am very excited about this coming event!  It will truly be an epic weekend!

Now I was considering doing this as an annual event, however I have decided to do it every 2 years.  The reason is this is a very time intrusive thing to do. It is kinda like a "wedding" in a sense. So rather then do it half way, I would rather do it every 2 years and have it ROCK.

Pretty much everything is set to go now. Some details still to be worked out, but everything will fall into place!  One of the things we are going to cover in this event is H.P.P.T! [Humane Pressure Point Tactics]

I am getting a lot of requests for this! Follow this LINK and learn more about the CAMP!

Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

The Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

The Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

What do I mean when I say the Science of Pressure Point Self Defense? First I need to define the word science.

Science [Noun]

  1. The observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.
  2. Such activities restricted to a class of natural phenomena.
  3. Such activities applied to an object of inquiry or study.

Do you notice that nowhere in the definition does it refer to any FACT?

Today science, mainstream science has become a political ideology almost like a religion and that is NOT in anyway the definition of the word. Words have meaning, and you cannot just change them to suit your beliefs.

Now that the rant is out of the way!

How do we approach Kyusho Jitsu as a science?  This is done by experimenting with many different volunteers, of every imaginable body type, and trying to find pressure points, and methods of applying them that give a predictable result.  I consider anything over 85% to be pretty dependable.

Therefore I use this as the benchmark. 

The result of pressure point activation can be as follows:

Stimulation of activation of the pressure point will likely cause.

  • Pain
  • Weakness in the body
  • Unconsciousness

This is all we really need to work about!

Why 85%?

The reason I look for a 85% benchmark for a pressure point working is because these are pretty good odds of success! Nothing is 100%. It is not possible because there are 2 many variables!

As an example if I look at myself. For some ODD and unknown reason I have a VERY high pain tolerance. I have had multiple surgeries due to injury and NEVER take any pain medications. Not even over the counter aspirin.  These injuries include the following.

After Forklift Accident - Achilles tendon

After Forklift Accident - Achilles tendon

  • Was hit by a forklift at Chrysler in 2002 that tore me, from ankle to ankle. Requiring dozens of stitches and a resulting rupture to the Achilles tendon. 
  • Broke Bicep tendon and surgical reattachment. 
  • Torn knee cartilage
  • Torn / severed hamstring muscle
  • Multiple concussions.

So there are a lot of things because of this tolerance that do not work on me. However many of the pressure points I teach do work, but not necessarily from the pain aspect! But they do cause a weakness!

Science of Pressure Point Self Defense
Large Intestine 18

Large Intestine 18

Large Intestine 18 is a strike point that has a better then 85% success rate on everyone we have tried it on.

This pressure point can also when hit correctly and with enough force cause a Neurological Knockout

So I am sure you can now see, the study of Kyusho Jitsu is indeed a science.  And we are honest enough to report the real findings, not making them up! 

Pressure Point study, along with a SOLID self defense martial art system is a game changer!  But again I must stress there is study and work that must be done! I also do not insist that people take my findings as gospel! 

You should do the work yourself and find you own results. And I encourage this! If by some chance you are looking for a self defense system based on Kyusho Jitsu follow this link

FACT - Self Defense is Neurological

Yes it is true, it is a FACT. And there are very few FACTS. Many martial artist these days love to ridicule things that do not understand, and the science of pressure point self defense is one of those! 

So what do I mean?

Well if you punch someone in the face really hard, the resulting pain is neurological. If they receive a concussion, which is swelling of the brain, that can result in sever headache, unconsciousness and even death. This is also neurological!

Concussion

Concussion

So why would you not study the human nervous system to utilize this and optimize your techniques? OK, then this makes sense right? Well a "Pressure Point" is a place on the body where a "nerve ends" or crosses another nerve. it is also a place where a nerve branches into a "Y."

So why are you not studying this?? Especially when it will help you get the results you want, more effectively and more efficiently! 

The main reason many people do not study the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu is because there are so many instructors who DO NOT KNOW because they did not study it, who give opinions that simply not valid!

And believe me there are thousands of them! Also students are often worried about what these closed minded instructors will say! If you have one of these instructors, time to move on to someone still open to learning!

NO ONE knows everything.
And the ones who insist they do usually know the least!
