The Evolution and Future of Kyusho Jitsu: A Journey from Controversy to Mainstream Acceptance

Future of Kyusho Jitsu

What is the Future of Kyusho Jitsu? As we navigate the complexities of the modern world, the martial arts community has witnessed significant transformations since 2001, the year I embarked on my Kyusho Jitsu journey. At that time, Kyusho Jitsu, while recognized, was far from being embraced by the mainstream.

The art was synonymous with George Dillman, a figure who stirred much debate within the martial arts realm, polarizing opinions with some viewing Kyusho Jitsu as a revolutionary technique, while others dismissed it as mere pseudoscience.

Fast forward two decades, and the landscape has markedly changed. George Dillman's active presence has waned, and the digital revolution has shifted martial arts discussions from magazine pages to the vast expanse of the internet. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), with their foundational use of pressure points, have gained broader acceptance, paving the way for a more receptive attitude towards Kyusho Jitsu within the martial arts community, albeit with lingering skepticism.

Future of Kyusho Jitsu

A prevalent misconception persists among martial artists regarding the application of Kyusho Jitsu in real-world self-defense scenarios. Critics argue that targeting a pressure point, such as ST-05, necessitates fine motor skills, which are deemed unreliable in high-stress situations, favoring gross motor skills instead. Ironically, these critics often overlook that using a firearm—a commonly cited tool for personal protection—also requires fine motor skills, underscoring a fundamental misunderstanding of skill application under stress. Proper training can enable the effective use of pressure points with precision, much like achieving accuracy under pressure when using a firearm.

Looking to the Future of Kyusho Jitsu, Kyusho Jitsu's evolution hinges on a deeper exploration of the dynamics at play during an attack. This involves understanding the physiological effects of adrenaline, the attacker's intent, and how these factors can be turned to the defender's advantage. The path forward calls for a disciplined approach to training, grounded in a thorough comprehension of pressure point mechanics and their strategic deployment.

Future of Kyusho Jitsu

In my video course, "Kosho Ryu Knife Pathways," I emphasized that the unseen knife poses the greatest threat, highlighting the importance of psychological awareness in knife defense—a stark contrast to cinematic portrayals. This principle underlines the necessity for a nuanced understanding of the attacker's mindset to enhance defense strategies effectively.

Kyusho Jitsu, fundamentally a study and not a distinct martial art system, thrives when seamlessly integrated into an individual's chosen martial arts discipline. Its effectiveness is contingent on the nature of the practitioner's focus—be it sport or street-oriented. The art's future vitality rests on a collective return to the traditional martial arts ethos, prioritizing defense over offense. This is where Kosho Ryu's exploration of the natural laws governing movement plays a crucial role, offering a framework to augment the efficacy of martial arts training.

Future of Kyusho Jitsu in conclusion

For enthusiasts and practitioners alike, delving deeper into the intersection of Kyusho Jitsu with Kosho Ryu and the natural laws of motion presents a promising avenue for enhancing martial arts proficiency. My eBook called Kyusho Jitsu and the Secrets of the Octagon, which bridges these concepts, posits that the future of Kyusho Jitsu lies in leveraging these universal principles to transcend demonstration and achieve practical effectiveness on the streets.

As we stand on the brink of this new era, it becomes imperative to reassess our training paradigms, embracing the rich legacy of martial arts while adapting to the demands of contemporary self-defense scenarios. Kyusho Jitsu, rooted in the ancient wisdom of natural laws, beckons us to a future where its principles are not just demonstrated but lived, offering a profound impact on personal safety and martial arts practice.

Kosho Ryu and Kyusho Jitsu Principles. How to connect 5 principles?

Kosho Ryu and Kyusho Jitsu

Kosho Ryu and Kyusho Jitsu Principles, how do they work together?? Or do they even work together? Let us have a detailed look! First however I am going to mention i am creating a video course on this subject.

It is called Kosho Ryu Insights Advanced Pressure Point Principles and is part of the Kosho Core Concepts Series. And if you are new to the teachings of Kosho Ryu and Natural Laws join my FREE 5 Lesson Mini Course

Kyusho Jitsu principles are amazing! 

Kosho Ryu and Kyusho Jitsu Principles

At some point in time everyone who pays attention sees the connection between Kyusho Jitsu, the study of pressure points and the natural laws of Kosho Ryu. And when they see this they understand why Kyusho is so easy for me. Why is the knowledge is so deep! Because it is not me but the study itself.

And it took me 15 years to see that!

Kyusho Jitu prinicples are epic. But, the issues is application.Now I have a eBook called Kyusho Jitsu Theories to Street Application is which I dicuss this. And this is a great book because it shows my progress of learning. And this may help you on your journey too! This is why I leave my old content available.

But back tot he purpose of this message. Kyusho is practiced like any WAZA with the opponent basically standing still allowing the strikes. Below is an old Kyusho demonstation I did. You will see what I mean.

Kosho Ryu and Kyusho Jitsu Principles

Now here I am applying many different principles. But, in real life will the attacker stand and allow me to do my thing? I know you realize that this is not real. Like so much of what we "see" in thee world today. And you may be able to move just find and deal with the attack. But, what are you depending on to do so?

The average martial artist, and a vast majority while thinking pressure points are great, do not see how you can strike them live. But I have, why? Because I follow the natural laws of motion which opens up the body for attack. I cover this all in great deals in Pressure Points of Kosho Ryu.

Kosho Ryu and Kyusho Jitsu Principles in Conclusion

Kosho Ryu and Kyusho Jitsu CONCLUSION


But that is simply striking pressure points. How do you counter strike and apply the principles LIVE?  How to coneect Kosho Ryu and Kyusho Jitsu Principles?

That is what this new course called Kosho Ryu Insights: Advanced Pressure Point Principles is about. 

This is going to cover many principles, but not the Yin/Yang principle because that needs it own course. Check these courses out! They are now in full production and will release long before the expected dates. Act now and save too! Follow the links for all the information.

The importance of time. Why time should never be wasted.

The importance of time

The importance of time. I hate the term, the idea of wasting time. When someone wastes my time the relationship is finished.

That may seem harsh, but it is intended to be that way. For my language study I use a company called Innovative Languages, RomanianPod101, to be specific. And they are excellent.

I did look briefly at the English version because I wanted to review grammar. But the English edition was unimpressive.

The importance of time

My first martial art teacher taught English as a second language, he had a school to do so.

In the study, part of a news audio, they discuss success by replacing wasted time with productive time. And I have to admit I find it alarming at how the founder of the company wastes so much time himself playing games on his phone and watching YouTube. Personally i do not like games. I NEVER play games on my phone or laptop.

And as far as YouTube goes I also do not watch videos, unless I am trying to learn something about a specific topic. The last video I watched was on on digging a well. The importance of time cannot be overstated.

The importance of time

I enjoy my life. And I am in FULL control of my time. I had one former student push and push for my phone number so we could "chat." I do not "chat." And also I do not give out my phone number. I learned that 20 years ago when a man from Australia kept calling me at 2:00 am asking Kyusho questions and wishing to talk about his life.

I am accessible via email for anyone wishing to ask a question. I set time aside for this purpose.

This allows me time to do the things that are important to me. Like spend time with my "pack" or learn something new. Write a book or do a video course etc.

The importance of time

Social media platforms are a disease of the mind. I would love to see them ALL GO. They are political, promote lies and have destroyed society. As an example the narrative they pushed on Ukraine. ALL LIES to help the political class. And you consume their lies, why???

It is called addiction, and it is as dangerous as an addiction to a drug. In truth it is the same. Facebook has destroyed friendships, families, businesses and culture. A great example was how they censored truth and promoted the LIES of 2020. They have also participated in conspiracy to commit election fraud, in many countries.

I wrote an article called Facebook is Irrelevant in 2021 and was suspended for it. FB need to be bankrupted and investigated. 

Martial Arts?

What does this have to do with martial arts? It seems to me that many now think that Facebook or YouTube are a replacement for training. And with the amount of time people spend on these platforms is the reason I think this.

FB to me is useless. Like drinking from a toilet. YouTube has some great content, but if you do not hit the floor and train with it, you wast your time. The importance of time, you must master time, not be its slave!

If I watch a video, let's say from Hanshi Juchnik I do so and then hit the floor to train with it. That is how you learn! Not by going on FB and writing comments on posts, or checkout slutty looking "females" doing vertical kicks show crotch in the photo. 

Time well wasted - The importance of time!

I remember many years ago an ad for the Comedy Network stating that "watching the comedy network was time well wasted." How can time be well wasted? You flushed part of your life down a toilet for what reason?

I used to jump all over my children if they dared tell me they were "bored."  I am never bored because my mind is disciplined. I am in control of my mind and therefore the controller of MY TIME. And I have all there is to have!

The importance of time again cannot be overstated. If this was your last day on earth would you spend it on Facebook? Playing games on your phone? Watching FAKE LYING news channels? Then why are you doing it now?

I know I would never regret time well spent in nature, with my "pack" or learning something, training myself. 

The importance of time in Conclusion

The importance of time CONCLUSION

How are you going to spend your time here on earth? Waste it? Or use it to make a better life, a better world for you and your family?

The choice is always yours. I have social or should I say anti-social media accounts still for ONLY one reason. And I will not disclose that reason. But soon they reason will no longer apply and they will all be gone.  

I know the importance of time. And I use my time wisely. Thank your for taking time to read this article. This BLOG has a lot of accurate and FREE information on the study of the pressure point science called Kyusho Jitsu.

A better place to spend time wisely because you are learning.

Learn Kyusho Jitsu in the most effective way!

Learn Kyusho Jitsu

In order to learn Kyusho Jitsu in the most effective way you must first understand that Kyusho is NOT a martial art! It is rather a study.

A study of the meridians and pressure points of the human body and how best to target them for effective results. 

In this article I am going to go into details about this study. However the object of the article is not to teach you Kyusho Jitsu. It is to make you understand what, if you chose to study you will be doing, what you would be studying. 

 You can begin learning Kyusho Jitsu FREE right now from this link. However I suggest reading this article first.

Learn Kyusho Jitsu

The first place we being is with the meridian systems of the body. A meridian is an energy pathway in which Chi flows. This flow is directly linked to the health of the body and its organs. There are a total of 12 meridians and 2 vessels on the body. These are learned in great details along with their pathways.

Western Medicine will deny the existence of these meridians. However the reason is clear why they do. Their mandate is not health or wellness, only to sell pharmaceuticals. The SCAM of 2020 proves this beyond any doubt to the thinking mind.

There is no BIG money in this type of medicine, natural medicine, and therefore it is denied.

Along these energy pathways are what is called pressure points. These are places on the body that correlate to nerves.

Learn Kyusho Jitsu

There are 361 common pressure points on the each side of the body. Plus what are referred to as "extraordinary pressure points." These pressure point can be further divided into different classifications such as alarm points, associated alarm points etc.

While it is not necessary to know every pressure point on the body there are a group of at least about 50 that the student needs to be familiar with.  I have an eBook called Kyusho Pressure Points Anatomy, which is like a Grey's Anatomy for pressure points.  It references each and every pressure point on the body.

Principles and Concepts

If you decide to learn Kyusho Jitsu you must then also look at the principles of study.  I teach a total of 15 Principles that must be learned in order to be effective when applying this study. And application is very important!

At one time long ago martial art styles taught much of this information. But as they became main stream and commercialized much information was removed for safety reasons, because they were teaching children, and sport.  While sport martial arts can have a place it has no relationship to the street or street defense. 

No matter who thinks it does.

There are some Kyusho Jitsu instructors who have abandoned the teaching of these principles and this is why I call them instructors and not teachers. It is like the western school system no longer teaching cursive writing to students. I see people graduating colleges that cannot sign their names or do simple math without a calculator.

These principles tie into every aspect of the martial arts and therefore it is a disservice to not teach them. Unless of course the instructor does not know them him or her self.  If you wish to learn kyusho Jitsu why not learn it all?

Learn Kyusho Jitsu in Conclusion

 You can begin learning Kyusho Jitsu FREE right now from this link. However I suggest reading this article first. CONCLUSION

So what is the best path to take if you wish to learn Kyusho Jitsu, really study it? I have 2 different suggestions based on what you want to get from the study.

If you just want to learn, and integrate the information into you current style of martial art training then my Complete Kyusho Jitsu Learning Guide from A to Z is what you need.

Or if you are looking for Black Belt rank in Kyusho then you need to look at my Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course. These both will get you were you want and need to be!

Control your Reactions to Life. More about Triple Warmer!

Control your Reactions to Life

Control your Reactions to Life. Media today is designed to trigger emotional responses from those who consume it.

Control your Reactions to Life. Understand Triple Warmer and how it is the center of all emotions.

Have you noticed how off the wall people are today with their emotions? Like they are looking for a reason to be angry?

And anti-social media like Facebook is feeding this anger. With their endless censorship and bullshit about fact checkers. 

Control your Reactions to Life

And this continuous dumping of adrenaline into the blood destroys your health. But I am sure by now with the endless lies and power grabs of 2020 you see why they are doing this. 

How do I react when I see this stuff? I do not see it. I do not scroll worthless anti-social networks like "X" or Facebook for the same reason that I do not drink from the toilet. And the 1 or 2 actual friends I have on these platforms do understand why.  A friend is someone you have MET in the REAL world. Not this virtual crap. On anti-social media it is easy to pretend to be something you are NOT. 

I do post some, mostly as an experiment to see what positive posts do to people. They are for the most part ignored. So groundwork laid, let's look at how the Triple Warmer Meridian ties into all this. 

Control your Reactions to Life

Control your Reactions to Life is tied directly to Triple Warmer, which is connected to the hormonal system of the body. All emotions are hormone based! Now I do not know if the emotion leads the hormone or the hormone causes the emotion, and it really does not matter. But the MIND must be taken control of, and these overreactions quelled.

Because you see it in the media does not mean it is true, and usually when talking about any main stream media it is an obvious lie. They can NEVER be trusted again! Now I have been calling out the FAKE mainstream since I was 9 and that BS moon landing crap. Indoctrination is not intelligence, connecting dots is! Now a "highly educated" person may know his stuff, but that does not mean what he was taught/told was true!

The moon landing looked FAKE. My dad and I used to do effects like that with his 8mm movie camera. And even a small amount of actual research today proves my point. But people still want to believe in that fantasy. Former corrupt president Obama even admitted it once. 

The Triple Warmer Meridian controls all. And therefore its understanding is paramount in street defense and in Kyusho Jitsu.

How does one control their Control your Reactions to Life? By developing a Discipled Mind. Below I will link to a FREE eBook I wrote on the subject.

Control your Reactions to Life in Conclusion

Control your Reactions to Life CONCLUSION

In a world were controlling the emotions of the masses by propaganda and fear mongering, people MUST do the work, admit they have been had and take back their minds.

This also leads to the street and understanding the crazies allowed to walk free, especially in the USA today.

Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strike. What happens with emotional people.

Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes

Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes: It all started many years ago with a condition we referred to as "road rage." Someone does something in traffic that causes one driver to go insane and become violent. I have linked a video with about 60 minutes of examples.

Today the issue is far worse. In the western culture all you need do is get to close to someone, or even make eye contact and they go crazy. And I wish it really was isolated but it is not. And for the martial artist, the Kyusho Jitsu practitioner there is much to learn and understand about this condition. 

Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes

First let's talk about the Triple Warmer or Triple Heater Meridian. This is a meridian of the upper extremities that is YANG in nature, a fire element meridian, with 23 pressure points on it. 

Triple Heater serves 2 very important functions for the body. Originally in ancient Chinese Medicine the Triple Warmer Meridian was understood to regulate the heat in the 3 regions of the body. Therefore if you had a fever it was Triple Burner having energy issues.

Today however we know that the meridian has a more important function. It controls the endocrine system of the body. Or in other words your emotions. If you connect the dots here you will realize these people with emotions off the scale have an imbalance focused on this meridian. 

For our main focus we would need to consider the Hypothalamus which is the glad that lies in direction relationship with emotions. This glad secretes hormones non stop into the body. Hormones drive emotions. Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes can make a huge difference!

Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes

No matter what pressure points you strike on the human body, or no matter where you strike on the body you activate the Triple Burner Meridian bilaterally. Depending on the force of the strike and other varying conditions will dictate how intense the activation is.

This is because you cannot have someone strike you and not stimulate a reaction from you. And ALL reactions have an emotionally based element. Whether this be anger, fear, or even amusement. Words also trigger the meridian as well! Learn as much as you can about this one!

This is such an important topic I even wrote a book on it a few years back called Mastering Triple Warmer Meridian. And to realize this leads us to want to understand which pressure points on the body can have a direct impact on emotions themselves. Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes is a very important topic! 

Triple Warmer Pressure Points

So let's take a look at a few possible pressure points to work into your training for different possible states you might face. 

Now one pressure point to NOT strike on a CRAZY humanoid, someone is a highly emotional state is TW-16, linked here. This can cause a high emotional state, where all things seem very critical. Paranoia is not uncommon. So you could make it worse! Also in reference to this please read this article on Cycle of Emotions

You do not want to do something to make the problem worse! 

TW-18 on the other hand is a great pressure point to strike as it will cause brain shock and unconsciousness. I also highly recommend learn about the 5 Best Knockout Pressure Points because the emotions will shut down at this point. 

Another great head point to consider is ST-08

Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes in Conclusion

Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes CONCLUSION

Why did I call this article Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes when I am not listing a pile of pressure points to strike on Triple Warmer?  The reason is no matter where you strike you affect Triple Warmer.

If I was to come over to you and punch you in the arm will you not have an emotional reaction to that? 

Of course you will! 

That is Triple Warmer kicking in. This is also why "escape" is so important on today's streets. With the off the scale "NUTBAGS" running free on the streets, of especially the USA, you have to do this. They want to battle. And much can go wrong if you engage them.

I do suggest you study the pressure point system of the body in depth. Understand what the major pressure points do, and then add more from there. I have a eBook called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy which is perfect for this. 

This is must know information for the serious Kyusho Jitsu student. I hope you enjoyed reading Triple Warmer Pressure Points Strikes.

The Brain Dies if not Used. Reasons learning must never stop.

The Brain Dies if not Used

The Brain Dies if not Used. In today's world people consider me to be a very intelligent man. If that is true the world is in deep trouble. And the world IS in deep trouble.

I consider myself average in this manner. And I am not knocking myself. This is not negative self talk. I understand how much there is to learn and therefore pursue this will passion.

The Brain Dies if not Used. And today you see this everywhere! I constantly see people who cannot spell the simplest words, or even understand basic grammar.

Also math without a calculator is impossible for a large majority. People graduate university and college without being able to WRITE THEIR NAMES. The Brain Dies if not Used!

The Brain Dies if not Used

*Value of celebrity opinions

But these people can tell you what is wrong with the world and how to fix it. But they cannot run their own lives.

Professional athletes and "celebrities" are a great example. Drug addicts, sex addicts and pedophiles want to run the world.  

Sorry I have NO respect for ANY of them, in the west that is.

And people give these losers opinions value. Well I do not!

Now that the rant portion of this article is over let's talk about solutions. The Western Culture is in deep trouble. But if each person was to improve him or her self, stand as an example to others then things can and will change.

I teach martial arts. I teach Kyusho Jitsu and Kosho Ryu. Both are studies and since the Brain Dies if not used they are important studies! It does not matter the study itself, but both of these arts are complex and require thinking. They are NOT like other studies, which are basically ideologies.

Ideologies are indoctrination points. But, you can turn almost any learning opportunity into an indoctrination. You do not want to be indoctrinated. You can to learn and decide by example what is correct and what is not.  

The Brain Dies if not Used - Kosho Ryu

I recently wrote an eBook called Kosho Ryu: The Awakened Mind. This is hands down the worst selling product I have done. But, the feedback from those who read states it is my best work. 

Why is that?

People have been programmed by media to "ask experts" rather than thinking for themselves. And these expert all corrupt! A great example is western medicine, which should be called pharmaceutical medicine because it is not about health or cures, but ONLY about profits for drug companies.

This is the exact same thing as drug cartels except legalized.  Telling lies to the public is now and profit center. 

The Brain Dies if not Used - Kyusho Jitsu

Kyusho Jitsu is a marvel study! It is very complex and deep. And I have created a great path to learning which begins with a 10 lesson Kyusho Mini Course and for serious students the Kyusho Home Study Course

And to be successful you have to learn to connect dots between all the principles and concepts. This is powerful and brain building! 

And I do not put time limits on learning. Take as long as you wish, ask as many questions as you wish. I am happy to help!

I am a teacher, my passion is teaching. 

I have spent almost 40 years in the arts, and the first 16 was in pursuit of the physical aspects of the arts. There other 24 years has been in the understanding of the concepts, theories and principles that make the martial arts work in real life. 

This has opened my eyes to a very different world. It causes clear vision!

The Brain Dies if not Used - Language

I have written in the past about the importance of language in the martial arts. I wrote an article at the World Budo Alliance blog a while back called Learning the Language of Budo. This is about the importance of learning the language of the style you train in. Consider reading the article, I am sure you will enjoy it.

And what I mean is if your root art is Japanese consider learning some Japanese! I have linked a great website for this.  

The Brain Dies if not Used so consider learning something! And then never stop!

The Brain Dies if not Used in Conclusion

The Brain Dies if not Used CONCLUSION

I often times add Romanian words to my articles, and my signature is in Romanian. Why? Am I showing off? No not at all. I am teaching. working to open up minds to another language and another culture.

If I do another seminar in Romania it will come in handy to have been exposed, even a little.

I had someone not long ago ask me my gender. Now this was not one of the BS political questions he was confused because of my signature. It is "Mare Maestru Art Mason." It thought this was my entire name and did not realize it is a title. Mare is BIG in Romanian and Maestru is master. The translation is Grand Master. He tried to research the name and got Mara, which is a woman's name. It is in long form Marioara. I know a Mara. 

He asked the question and learned something. Perfect!

I hope you got something from reading this article The Brain Dies if not Used. Myself I study Romanian formally about 1 to 2 hours per day. And 95% of the language I hear is Romanian not English. I have immersed myself completely to LEARN.

Keep your brain sharp your entire life. THEY want you stupid. And they have succeeded with too many people. Time to wake up.

Pressure Point Combinations. Assuring Victory on the Streets

Pressure Point Combinations

Pressure Point Combinations . Assuring Victory on the Streets. Are "they" burning down the streets of your city? Arson is NOT climate change no matter how many times they lie. Lies never become truth.

The reality of the streets today is very different and very dangerous. In many places those who should be defending you are opposing you! Corruption is the word of the day!

Therefore you MUST be prepared, and prepared today for anything.  Chance does favor the prepared mind

But sadly many martial artist are complacent. You know the saying "it will never happen to me." If I had a dollar for every time I have heard that one!

And if you look at the History of the Martial Arts, and the reason for the creation of different styles over the years you will see truth. Connect dots. They were creations of the times. And the master of old understood Pressure Point Combinations even if they did not teach it.

When you learn Kyusho Jitsu you learn about principles. And the Cycle of Destruction is one of the first you learn about. Next is the Yin/Yang principle and later the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle becomes important. And these are all based in application on Pressure Point Combinations.

Without Pressure Point Combinations there is no way to get any result with this information. Yes I could ONE TIME a pressure point like ST-05 and get BIG result, but I would also do a ton of damage. And that cannot be done in a Dojo. The health of the Uke is of great importance.

And optic rule the world. Digital recording is easy to fake or alter for an objective! 

To solve this issue you create WAZA in order to train and show your proficiency in Kyusho Jitsu. And all of this makes perfect sense. The issue comes when people think, and think wrongly that WAZA will work on the street. It was never intended too!

But because the western culture is so pathetic they believe in instant results, and deny the idea that all this requires time and HARD work. Work is really a  letter word in the west. 

Pressure Point Combinations Natural Laws

You must also understand the natural laws that govern what the attacker is going to do! And almost every still ignores this. Because it is hard to sell to the public! So they "play" sport and try to convince people that you can be a tough guy and win on the streets this way.

Best of luck to you!

I know several "champions" had their asses handed to them in bars. idiots.....

Combinations happen when you learn to move rather then stand and fight. And I do not mean to bounce around like a boxer either. Natural movement based on the angles of the Octagon, not circles either. Then because of the actions of the attacker targets present themselves. This is what is referred to in Kosho as VOIDS.

The brain is an amazing thing. Train it, teach it and it will do things when you relax that is beyond belief! But people are just not willing to do the work. I made massive sacrifices in order to learn Kyusho Jitsu from Grand Master Steve Stewart. These included a lot of money, tens of thousands and years of dedicated training, and time. 

And it was worth it!

But it did not solve the application issue. However what I learned about the Natural Laws thought in Kosho put all the pieces of the puzzle together!

Pressure Point Combinations in Conclusion

Pressure Point Combinations CONCLUSION

I strongly urge you to study Kyusho hard, learn as much as you can, but also to train in Kosho Ryu so that you can apply this knowledge when needed!

You can begin learning Kosho FREE from this LINK.

Waza ONLY works when the opponent is NOT trying to hurt you. Kosho ONLY works when the attacker is trying to hurt you. Sport is a game.

Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study. What is the POWER of the 80/20 Rule?

Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study

Do you know the 80/20 rule? Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study. This is the 80/20 rule in action! What is the 80/20 rule? The 80-20 rule is the principle that 20% of what you do results in 80% of your outcomes.

Put another way, 80% of your outcomes result from just 20% of your inputs. Also known as the Pareto principle, the 80-20 rule is a timeless maxim that’s all about focus.

Because so much of your output is determined by a relatively small amount of what you do each day, focusing on the most productive tasks will result in greater output.

The Pareto principle comes from the mind of Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who first introduced it in 1906. But it is Joseph Juran, a business theorist, who is credited with popularizing the idea and relating it to business situations during the 1940's.

This is why the 80-20 rule is usually used in business, but you can also apply it to your personal goals, like finances and spending or even learning a new skill. And this is true for the martial arts also. 

Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study

I was asked a great question recently if Kyusho Jitsu was the top end of study. The answer Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study. Yet it is so complex? That is because everything is a study, a learning opportunity. 

And the highest purpose of martial art training is to escape harm. Not to beat someone or kill someone. That is ego and has a heavy price attached to it! To escape without being harmed or doing harm. This is the most important aspect yet no one learns this or teaches it.

Do you want more from your training? I have spent the last 18 months creating a mass of Kosho Ryu courses and books to help you keep learning. Expanding your root art and training.

Starting with Introduction to Kosho Ryu which is at a special price right now. I have created 35 video course in Kosho, and I can easily do more because I am still learning too! And there are 14 books. Learning never ends! If you are new to Kosho this link can get you started FREE. 

One course called Pressure Points of Kosho Ryu is the ONLY Kyusho Jitsu related video course. Do you see what I am saying here? Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study!

Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study

However it gives a HUGE result when pursued! When you combine the study with the application the results are off the scales. And this is why I promote things they way I do. 

Now let us take a look a little deeper. What is the primary focus in martial art training? Movement right? Movement is found in your Kata and all drills. But movement alone, doing as an example a roundhouse kick well does NOT assure success in using it one the street.

To be successful on the street with a kick you must understand both distance and timing, also WHEN to use the tool. And honestly very few people really do. They rely on speed. And speed is short lives because as we age we do get slower.

For Kyusho to be success you cannot just go out and talk about the pressure points. It relies on the application of the knowledge through movement. Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study! But that 5% when applied correctly because of understand and proper training of movement becomes deadly!

Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study in Conclusion
Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study CONCLUSION

Now the question asked of me was if Kyusho was the "upper or ultimate" end of martial arts training.

And the truth is NO it is not. A deeper understanding of movement and the natural laws which govern motion are the ultimate of training!

But when all combines the results are truly off the scales!

Thank you for reading Kyusho is ONLY 5 percent of study!

Self Defense against Crazies. Being safe in a Mob

Self Defense against Crazies

Self Defense against Crazies. Being safe in a Mob. We are living in a time of epidemic mental illness and it is walking around town, often in gangs, like they own the place.

And in many ways they do. The have the courts and politicians in their front pocket. For now anyways. But history will repeat and the tables will be turned by the same people saying they support them right now.

But I am remiss. This is not the reason for the article. I care nothing of these people, they are not my problem. 

What I am concerned about is dealing with the issue this is creating a warp speed. Extreme violence due to cognitive dissonance in these "people." Self Defense against Crazies.

Self Defense against Crazies

I personally am out of harms way. I made sure of this years ago. But chance favors the prepared mind, and you must prepared. And this is not like the survivalist ideas, I am not talking about food for a disaster, while that is possible also. But rather realizing the things you have done in the past may no longer work the way they once did. 

However pressure points, and an understanding of their application can save your life. But this is going to require work and study. But it is never too late!  Who is in danger? In my opinion the primary people in trouble live in the larger cities of the western world

Now I could write a ten thousand page book on WHY this problem exist today. But that does not matter. What is needed is solutions for the average person, in this case martial artists, so they can protect themselves and their families.

Mental illness today is being enabled by the political system, this happened in the 1930's too. We all know how well that worked out. Enabling causes an over reaction to very nominal things, and explosive emotional reaction, that will be violent. 

And with every person have a video camera in their hands everywhere they go, you can lose everything defending yourself because the courts will rule against you because they have been paid off by the political systems. Therefore safe means something more today. 

Self Defense against Crazies

You have seen this building in the news for 40 years now. But people are so apathetic, stating it will not happen here, it is now almost everywhere. 

So you look at someone today, and simply because they did not like the look you gave them their Triple Warmer Meridian goes into overdrive and they enter attack mode. Instantly you are in a face to face confrontation with a sleepwalker, a crazy. 

What will you do?

You have decades of training and you believe you could defeat this person. But how many more of them are there? Crazy is often found in gangs. 

You MUST learn to ESCAPE first, do battle second. Time to lose the ego. Today a win on the street can be a lost WAR in a courtroom. You must master Self Defense against Crazies!

Self Defense against Crazies - Win by Escape

Secrets of the Octagon

The first thing you must be is prepared. Stop wearing headphone when out in the world. Be alert 24/7. Self Defense against Crazies is serious business. And the ONLY real way to escape is using the natural laws of the Octagon. 

And this information that I am promoting was removed in the 20th century from the martial arts as they became a commercial product.

But now, with the insanity of the 2020's this must be once again taught to all students.

My former Dojo in Canada is even teaching this to children who are students beginning the first day. Why? Because it works. Teaching children how to move to escape is the best idea. Then to fight only if there is no other choice. And the parents love it!
