Important Kyusho Pressure Points

Important Kyusho Pressure Points

What are the most Important Kyusho Pressure Points? Now the reason I say Kyusho Pressure Points is to make sure that I am differentiating between Kyusho and Acupuncture. Now the very best reference you can have for the most important Kyusho Pressure Points is my eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. It is called the Gray's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu for a reason. 

The deeper your understanding of the function of the different pressure points the better you will do with your study. There are many things to consider like correct angle and direction, which relates directly to your root art. Then we must consider at least the first five Principles of Kyusho Jitsu. [There are 15 total]

This would be Principles like the Cycle of Destruction,  and Attack Along the Meridian. And that all relates to the 5 Element Theory.

Pressure Points to Consider

The following are the pressure points that I feel everyone should be considering adding to their self defense system. This is the place to focus at the beginning. If an article exists on this blog with reference to any of these pressure points I will reference with a link.  As I write articles on the pressure points not linked I will add them.

Most Important Kyusho Pressure Points

Important Kyusho Pressure Points CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

This is far from an exhaustive list! And to be honest there are many I have left out! 

How did I come up with these over other pressure points? Well the list is directly related to my root art of Hapkido. 

You should decide which pressure points to train with first based on the movements you have internalized.

After that base is done, then it is easy to add more pressure points to your current self defense system and then add more pressure points. Knowing these pressure points is essential for anyone in the martial arts. The time has come to leave the haters and pressure point / Kyusho failures behind! 

Any questions? feel free to leave a comment here.

Kyusho 5 Element Hand

Shares

Kyusho 5 Element Hand

* Kyusho 5 Element Hand

What is the Kyusho 5 Element Hand? Today I will jump into a detailed look at the elements within the hand, and how to take advantage of these elements in the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu.  and this information is directly link to the importance of the Kyusho 5 Element Theory.

This is also something that many instructors do not teach and often times guard it as being "Secret" Or maybe they just don't know.

 Kyusho 5 Element Hand - How it Works

The picture above is not completely accurate. However it will do.  Remember there is no absolute in anything! And this applies to the elements of the body. The hands are "predominantly" fire and metal, however they do contain traces of all the elements. 

You will also notice that they are using the Kyusho Jitsu Colour Principle, but the mix is healing and destructive which is odd. 

It appears in the image that the entire finger is, as an example with the metal or ring finger, to be entirely metal. This is not true. The element change begins at the knuckle and grows more and more as it reaches the finger tip. Therefore the "tip" of the ring finger is more "metal" than any other part of the finger. 

This is why the "middle" finger is so effective to use as a fire finger. 

Using the Finger Tip Elements

Before we really get into this lets talk about using the finger tips as a weapon. Now you certain can condition your fingers with "iron palm" training to be used as weapon. But you can also attack a pressure point, depending on the pressure point with a pressing action. 

* Pressure Point LI-10

Not all pressure points are "press" points. However Pressure Point LI-10 is a great example of being both a press and strike pressure point. Which finger would work best? The "middle" or Pericardium Finger, because you are following the Cycle of Destruction. Try this with a partner! You will see that the middle finger will cause the most pain!

Experiment with all of these. You will see very predictable results!

Kyusho 5 Element Hand - The "Secret"

But there is something that few people know about all of this. The "secret" aspect! Now I could be wrong, because I have met many Kyusho Jitsu students who are aware of the above information. But thus far no one other than those I have taught about the "secret" method, which was taught to me by Grand Master Steve Stewart.

Have a watch of this short video for all the details!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

I hope you can see the "POWER" of the Kyusho 5 Element Hand from the above text and especially this video! 

My question today, is this new information to you or have you hear of this before?

Effective Pressure Point Strikes

Shares

Effective Pressure Point Strikes

* Effective Pressure Point Strikes

I get a dozen different questions on Kyusho Jitsu on a daily basis. Oftentimes more. Today in the article I want to discuss some of these questions. The reason is because I have noticed that many are asking the wrong questions.  in the article Effective Pressure Point Strikes I am hoping to give you some understanding on the importance of questions and asking the right ones.

Effective Pressure Point Strikes - Hammer Fist

I was doing a live stream yesterday on Facebook about addiction in society today. I was asked a question that was off topic, therefore I did not answer it. However I will address it here, because I am a pressure point teacher, and view everything in martial arts from this prospective.

"Is a hammer fist effective," was the question. This is what I have to called a bad question. Now this person does like to ask me questions like this in hopes we can debate the answers. However I have no interest or time for these kinds of things. 

Note:

Here is a classic example of a hammer fist strike taught in self defense classes. While reasonably effective there is a much better solutions with only a minor change of targeting.

Striking Extraordinary Pressure Point M-HN-9 would fall much more into the area of effective pressure point strikes. 

* Effective Pressure Point Strikes

But to answer the question, if I hit someone in the forehead with a hammer will that be effective? Certainly especially if they stand there and allow me to do it. But what if I miss? The hammer will affect my balance and allow for an easy counter strike. 

With regard to the "hammer fist" there would need to be much more information. What is your target? Are you following the laws of Yin/Yang. Who is the attacker, what is your body position. How long have to trained the "hammer fist" as a tool? What was the attack you are looking to counter? What are you targeting with this strike? 

Therefore what are Effective Pressure Point Strikes? Could a hammer fist fit this category?

But replying to this persons question there is the only one answer  I can give. "How effective are YOU because of YOUR training?"  A "hammer fist" is only as effective as the martial artist using it! Are you and your training effective? 

Effective Pressure Point Strikes

I see it written all the time. There are no effective pressure point strikes. And again this has nothing to do with pressure points. If you strike a pressure point and get no result it is not because striking pressure points is not effective. The fact is YOUR training is not effective. 

You want to get a result from Kyusho Jitsu you must train the principles of Kyusho Jitsu and not just for a short time either! There are no quick fixes and no instant result! No matter how many mental ill ideologues try to tell you otherwise today. 

As the old Spanish saying goes "dar tiempo al tiempo" or in English you must "give time to time."

A Better Question

Therefore a much better question and a complete question would have been "would a hammer fist to LU-01 be effective?"

And the answer would be given the correct opportunity and access to LU-01 a hammer fist would be a very effect tool.

Then your training over time could evolve to incorporate this scenario. This would fall into the realm of effective pressure point strikes.

Asking and learning to ask better questions is how people learn. You cannot learn while you are attempting to ask a question to engage in debate.

Free Kyusho Information

And especially if the question is vague and really has no answer. 

Today I had a great question asked of me which was: "How do I explain to someone why we train classical systems in the beginning and move into more natural movements for the advanced practitioner." This I will address in my Kyusho Question of the Day on YouTube.

Asking good questions gives you good answers. Asking GREAT questions give you great answers and martial arts training is learning to go from fair to good to great! 

In Conclusion

Effective Pressure Point Strikes CONCLUSION

What kind of questions are you asking?

If you are not asking any questions success comes very hard. Martial Arts Training is about Body-Mind and Spirit.

And if you do not ask question then you will never begin to master the mind, or the mental aspects of training. 

So if you could ask me one question right now, what would it be? Ask HERE. I am happy to answer!

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

OK everyone before you bring out the cross and nails and call me misogynistic let me explain the title first!  Back about a month ago I wrote an article called Understanding Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory.  You can read that article here if you missed it! Today let's take a look at Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy.

However my plan today is to look at the black half of the Yin-Yang symbol a little more closely. Today the focus in on Yin or female energy. I will be writing a subsequent article on male energy another time. And YES there is a difference!

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

The idea behind the Yin-Yang symbol is to show life as a whole. It is not meant to show division. Each side has part of the other half within it, thus making in a "whole." This is NOT opposites attracting, there are no opposites. They are just part of one whole.

I hope I am making this clear. It is a challenging subject to write about! 

Now when people do battle, most of the times it is men. Now before anyone get touchy this is just statistical fact. More males are involved in violence because they tend to be more aggressive. This is not always the case, but on average is true.

There are more men in prison for the same reasons. Women in prison are often not for the reasons of "violent crime" but other crimes.  Men are by nature more aggressive and women are by nature more agreeable. With the exception of the extremes. The science has been on this for a long time and have not been disprove. 

When Men Fight

When men decide to do battle it is "like energy" against "like energy."  This is one of the reasons that fights can go on a while.  The two combatants will feed off each others energy. Just look at a MMA fight!

But what happens when you complete an energy cycle? Watch this video below. This was from a class I did years ago on Yin-Yang Energies.  The ultimate demonstration of Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy! If you do not believe what you see try it for yourselves!

This is interesting right?

And I have never had an occasion I cannot replicate this effect! Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy, when added yields an remarkable result! Now, you are not going to likely ask your wife of girlfriend to come and help you in a fight. 

But is shows the POWER of energies and the addition of female to male energy. And also, you can alter this with your mind! Now if you are interested I have a really cool video from a previous course. You can read more about it right here!

Even this symbol has power! Print out one just like this one. This same setup.

Put it on your Uki's body and hit them with maybe 40% force on the stomach muscles. The turn the symbol upside down and do it again!

The result will shock you!

Understanding the Yin-Yang Symbol

In Conclusion

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy CONCLUSION

This article will certainly not be popular with the narrative today that there is no difference in the male and female of the species.

However "feelings" and facts rarely have anything to do with each other. 

Recently I did a webinar on the principle of Yin and Yang. You can watch below or bookmark it for a later date. If you have any comment of questions you can ask here.

Top 5 Ways to Master Kyusho Jitsu

* Master Kyusho Jitsu

Today the Top 5 Ways or Tips to Master Kyusho Jitsu. The mind works in a certain way regardless of what you might think. You may be getting a good result now with your training, or a poor result. But if you follow this Top 5 Ways to Master Kyusho Jitsu your rate of retention and effectiveness will sore!

Master Kyusho Jitsu Tip #1

Kyusho Jitsu Seminars

This one might seem to be very obvious, but you would be surprised how many people do not get it. You MUST DO THE TRAINING. Your years of experience in your root art have great value. But no matter how long you have trained you cannot simply read a book, or watch a video and think you "understand it."

Experience can shorten the path, but not eliminate it. And to be very honest I have seen a lot of bad Kyusho out there.

Master Kyusho Jitsu Tip #2

Copious Notes. You need to keep copious, detailed notes on everything!  The memory system works by association.

On average a person who watches a video or reads a book chapter on a any subject will retain less than 20% of the information after 1 hour. 

*Master Kyusho Jitsu

Re-reading or watching something a second time does not dramatically increase retention. It helps. But taking notes can increase your retention up to 80% on the first pass. And the neater the notes, done in cursive writing works far better then printing. 

And typing into a laptop does nothing at all for retention. There is some about the act of writing that is the best possible way.

Master Kyusho Jitsu Tip #3

Attend seminars. Seminars are interesting and educational opportunities you do not want to miss.

The assembly of other martial arts students does something for the brains ability to absorb materials. Some of the Kyusho Jitsu legends became great by following Grand Master Dillman around the country attending his seminars.

Master Kyusho Jitsu Seminar

But DO NOT FORGET the 2nd Tip! You must take notes at the seminars!

Master Kyusho Jitsu Tip #4

Networking. Social Media for most people today is their master! You can see it very plain of you look at how much time your friends spend on Facebook. However, when used correctly Social media is a great servant!

You can join Facebook Groups like mine, the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance here. Networking with like minded people can make a dramatic difference in the effectiveness of your training.

* Master Kyusho Jitsu

Master Kyusho Jitsu Tip #5

This one may surprise you. And it can vary somewhat from student to student.  Keep your training personal and do not spend a lot of time trying to sell what you are doing to friends or family. 

If you are involved in Kyusho because of your root art instructor, that is great! But if you are pursuing this alone you are best to keep it quiet!

People love to squash others ambitions and dreams. Why? Because the are envious, and lazy themselves. You do not need the "good opinions" of others. This applies to pretty much anything you do, 

In Conclusion

Master Kyusho Jitsu  CONCLUSION

I hope you got some good advice here in this article.

These are actually excerpts from my new eBook coming in September 2019.

The book is called 101 ways to Master Kyusho Jitsu. And yes there are at least 101 ways!

Top 5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets

* Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets

How would you like to unlock 5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets right now? There are reasons the master are so good, while others struggle to get things to work. So today I am going to give you 5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets!

Read on!


5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #1

Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets


Two Way Action - Fulcrum / Lever Activation

Two Way Action!  If you do not use, and understand Two Way Action then nothing in Kyusho will work for you!  But from what I see with most martial artists they have no clue what I am talking about. 

There is a GREAT misunderstanding today about what power is, and what force is. When you are punching and kicking a heavy bag you are not creating power. You are learning about force. ​"Kick/punch harder" is the mantra of the new generation of martial artist.

But this is NOT effective! And the PROOF is in the MMA ring, where the fights keep going on and on.  The ​understanding of POWER would end these battles in seconds.

Here is a video that explains Two Way Action

5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #2

Angle and Direction. You need to know the correct angle and direction of the pressure point you wish to activate! Now the angle is easy, it is ALWAYS at a 45 degree. And using Two Way Action will give you that 45 degree angle!

How do you do this? Study specific pressure points that you would like to work with and learn everything you need to know about each one. 

5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #3

Body Mechanics. This has a relationship to the concept of Two Way Action and is just as important because it is needed to create power. And to create power while keeping balance! 

Here is another short video with some information on 

Body Mechanics.

5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #4

Emotions. This is the hardest of the secrets to implement, but one of the most important! Now I am NOT talking here about the principle of attack using the cycle of emotions. I am referring to controlling your emotional response to the situation! In other words not taking the attack PERSONALLY

This is so common today! Everyone wishes to play victim and feel violated. STOP THIS. Yes it is hard! But it puts you in total control of the theories of Yin-Yang

5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #5


During a Kyusho Class in Canada the students are doing the work!

I will often see in seminars halfhearted attempts at training. If you don't do the work you will not get the results! PERIOD.

You gotta do the work. Today there is an instant gratification mentality and there is no such thing as instant anything. You gotta do the study, take the notes, train what you learn on the Dojo floor and FAIL. 

In Conclusion

5 Kyusho Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets  CONCLUSION

Failure is the road to success as long as you learn from it!

Really these secrets are just common sense! But wisdom is really only extraordinary common sense.

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points

What am I referring to when I say Kyusho Setup Pressure Points? Today I will jump into a some of pressure points that when activated help to accomplish a specific result in the science of pressure point self defense.  And results are what this is all about.

One of the reasons that Kyusho Setup Pressure Points are so important is because once activated a meridian will remain active for up to 20 minutes.

This can be of tremendous importance in self defense! Because you need to consider the control of the escalation levels of an attack. Therefore as an example, from a Level One scenario, covered in my Humane Pressure Point Tactics Courses, this leads to an easy activation of arm pressure points. 

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points - TW-03

There are many points that are good for setup. The best place to start is with ones that are easy to access.  The most inconspicuous place to practice is on the hand and wrist. So have TW-3 and PC-6 easily available. And these are awesome Kyusho setup points.

Below is a short video that will give you an example how the body can react when the points are used.

Just how important are these? Well in a low escalation situation you can activated either with a handshake. And the best, which is PC-06 is also a Special Alarm Point that causes a weakness in the chest.

Pretty cool eh?

Free Setup Pressure Points Course

Today, as a gift I am going to offer you a copy of this video [extended version] as a gift. I think this is better than just doing articles on different pressure points. This way you can have these on your hard drive or phone for easy reference.

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points  CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

In conclusion there is so very much to learn in the science of pressure point self defense.

I work very hard to feed you as much information as is possible to help you out.

Lie! Easily Defeat Any Attacker

Shares

Easily Defeat Any Attacker

Defeat any attacker

I hope you are not buying that headline? Really I can’t believe I saw this ad again, “Easily Defeat Any Attacker!” The ad was specifically targeted at saying that you don’t need to learn to fight to knockout anyone who is attacking you. Now I know they are referencing pressure point strikes, even if they call them something else. I should order the course for fun!

So why am I writing about this? Because in today's world there is a very dangerous belief that somehow you can be guaranteed an OUTCOME. That is simply just a lie!

Easily Defeat Any Attacker. The statement is FALSE

There are people out there in the world who can defend themselves or fight without training. I was one of the them. When I was a teenager I just loved to fight. I never lost. But that was something about me internally, my psychology, and not everyone is this way.  The claim of defeat or knockout any attacker is totally bogus, and it is a reckless and dangerous statement.

And I am often shocked how many times I see these kinds of claims.  EX military people selling what they know. Personally I question everything including their claims. However an important note to make. "COMBAT" is not self defense. The entire concept is different. In combat you train to KILL or BE KILLED. On the street you training to survive! Escape with your life in tact.

Apathy Self Defense Today

Easily Defeat Any Attacker - The FACTS

To easily defeat any attacker or successfully knockout any attacker is very possible. But without serious training, in a solid root art the odds are almost zero.

In a video from this ad they have someone fending off the attacker with a chair. Cool, but if the attacker is unarmed, and you crash the chair across his or her head, that is not self defense under the law. You cannot have a weapon unless they do! It is critical in self defense to understand the rules and apply them well. 

There are also many serious misconceptions when it comes to knife defense and gun defense. Linked are important articles I do suggest reading. 

There is no easy fix!

To increase your odds of successfully defending yourself there are things or “tools” you need. Here is a basic list of those self defense tools.

Pressure Point Art of Self Defense
  1. A solid root art, one that incorporates self defense training into it. Not all do this, some are purely sport. There are those who believe sport is enough. No, it is NOT enough, here is why. Sport fights go on for minutes, you don’t have minutes, this must end in SECONDS. Plus they rely on physical fitness levels that CANNOT be maintained throughout life. A solid self defense root art will provide a great foundation to build on.

2. The science of pressure point self defense, called Kyusho Jitsu will enhance the abilities you have developed from your root art. This is critical in order to cut down of the conflict time. The longer the defense goes the more likely you are too lose.

Adding Kyusho Jitsu

The phrase  coined by Grand Master Dillman, "one second fighting" is the ultimate goal.  It is a great goal! It is also possible because of Kyusho Jitsu to be obtained.  

One of the best ways to end any attack is with a knockout.  And Impact alone with not guarantee a knockout! Now I do not talk from anything here other than personal experience. Therefore I am not someone who read a book and makes claims like so many today.  However I did write a book on the subject. 

Kyusho Jitsu is not a "magic pill." It will however make the self defense aspects of your martial art style more effective. And this is what is needed! Making every counter strike that lands more effective! If you are new to Kyusho Jitsu follow this LINK and get started FREE.

In Conclusion

Easily Defeat Any Attacker Conclusion

This is not about how to easily defeat any attacker. This makes it sound like you are playing a game. Self Defense is about surviving the threat. Do not get sucked in my these kinds of claims of becoming a super fighter. 

You need a self defense course or information that builds from the ground up. Dealing with "escalation levels" and counter measure that put your safety first! 

And of course understanding how the law works to make sure you do not get attacked and end up being the one in JAIL. 

You have a right to self defense! Understand it fully! So have you encounter ads like these? Or course that make huge claims? Feel free to leave a comment here

Kyusho Teaching too Static

Kyusho Teaching too Static 

Kyusho Teaching too Static

One of the biggest criticisms of the science of pressure point self defense it that it is taught too "static." What do you think? Is Kyusho Teaching too Static? Or are the critical people simply misinformed? 

For sure someone who thinks this has never been to one of my classes, workshops or seminars. This is why I have a book and a video course on movement as it applies to Kyusho Jitsu. But I do understand their point. 

Let's take a look at why things are taught the way they are, and how they can evolve. 

Kyusho Teaching too Static - Reason One

When the student first begins his journey of Kyusho Jitsu there is so very much to learn. And event hose who are proficient at their root martial art style will have issues with all that must be learned!

Therefore this is NOT THE TIME for adding on the fly movements. Once the basics are learned and internalized, we have move on. Now to reason two.

Kyusho Teaching too Static - Reason Two

The next is very simply, the Uki. When you are first learning, and then if you add moving "live" the chances of a seriously "hard" pressure point strike increases.  The mind is trying to focus on more than one thing at a time. The result is the potential for serious injury to the Uki.

As your understanding progress to the point of unconscious competence in what you are doing the level of attack can be increased with accidental damage and unintended consequences reduced. 

Kyusho Jitsu Learning Curve

The diagram to the right is how all people, regardless of intelligence learn.

The first level is the "red" zone. This is Unconscious Incompetence. This is where 90% of martial artist fit when it comes to Kyusho Jitsu. Why? Because there has been no serious study.

This is the beginning level, when you don't know what you don't know.

* Kyusho Teaching too Static

The second level in Conscious Incompetence. This is the "orange" zone. Here you know you don't know anything. Sometimes referred to as the white belt mind

The third level Conscious Competence is when you have been training for a while. This is the "yellow"zone and the place where we can stop the "Kyusho Teaching too Static" idea. You are now really beginning to understand things. And they are beginning to become natural for you. Therefore movement can be added to the training.

The fourth level is the final one. Unconscious Competence. The "green' zone. This is the "Master" stage when you no longer think about what you are doing. It is driven purely by "intent" and not emotions. As Bruce Lee so beautiful quoted in Enter the Dragon, "not anger, emotional content." And also "i do not hit, it hits all by itself."

In Conclusion

Kyusho Teaching too Static Conclusion

Facts are fact, however you will never convince a naysayer of anything.

Closed minded people are very insecure and the idea of learning is just more than they can handle. And that is fine, they are in life where they are.

And just because someone does not like something does not mean that it is not true.

There is a path to learning and no matter how much some people do not like it, the facts do not change. Even if you are a 50 year Grand Master this still holds true. Experience will help you progress quicker, but the path is the path. 

Once Unconscious Competence is reached, then Kyusho Jitsu can be practiced full speed. If you have any questions please feel free to comment here.

Gun Defense Laws

Gun Defense Laws 

Gun Defense Laws

This article is written by former Police Officer Kara Borshuk on Gun Defense Laws in the United States of America and Canada. There is a lot of misinformation out there! And some very BAD advice too! Therefore it is extremely import for martial artists to get a handle on this knowledge from experienced sources. 

So on with real FACTS about Gun Defense Laws.

Gun Defense Laws - Facts

Most of these Stats are based on United States Laws.. but know that Guns and Weapons are as easy to get as a pack of smokes for the right price.

In the United States the Second Amendment is freedom's most valuable, most cherished, most irreplaceable idea. History proves it. When you ignore the right of good people to own firearms to protect their freedom, you become the enablers of future tyrants whose regimes will destroy millions and millions of defenseless lives.

Gun Defense Laws

The National Rifle Association (NRA), an organization originally established in 1871 to train hunters and marksmen on gun use and safety, has transformed into one of the most effective political lobbies in modern American history.

The group advocates for gun rights. Resisting any encroachment on what it deems to be an inalienable right to unhindered, unregulated gun ownership. To advance its mission, the NRA deploys a disinformation campaign reliant on fear mongering and the systematic dis-accreditation of opposition voices in order to secure its position as a powerful lobbyist for the gun industry. 

The NRA

When it comes to Gun Defense Laws the NRA has masterfully constructed a narrative based on gun rights propaganda, evoking images of a society devoid of rule of law and under constant threat of attack from an unidentified but ever-present enemy.

By deploying a carefully crafted campaign of misinformation, deception, and confusion, the NRA has both undermined legitimate arguments for common-sense gun law reform and made it substantially more difficult for its emotive, provocative propaganda to be countered with fact and reason. In this way, the NRA's tactics are deceitful not only because they falsely allege to protect American freedoms but also because they mirror fundamentally un-American sources.

Top 3 Self Defense Lies

Propaganda 

The propaganda machine of the NRA is similar to that of authoritarian and undemocratic political regimes around the world.  These regimes deploy disinformation campaigns to secure control over public discourse in their nations. Thus enabling autocrats to maintain a vice grip over information and ensure their power is unchecked and unquestioned.

The coordinated attacks, which took place in three Sri Lankan cities and killed more than 300 people, were designed to foment religious strife in a country that has been slowly recovering from a quarter-century-long civil war. On the 10-year path to peace and stability, there have been occasional flareups of religious violence.

Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million. In the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.

10-Lies about Gun Control Debate

Lie #1: 

There is no connection between mass gun ownership and gun deaths. It seems obvious that a country flooded with guns will have higher rates of gun deaths than countries with few of these weapons.

Lie #2:

We don't need stronger gun regulation because gun violence is declining. This lie is fun because of the way it depends on careful framing. Gun violence, defined as crimes committed with guns, has been declining for decades.

Lie #3: 

We didn't have this problem "in my day" because people loved Jesus and didn't play violent video games. Video games have nothing to do with the increase of violent acts of society today.. School shootings are as old as school. Young Matthew Ward murdered his teacher in front of the class in Louisville in 1853.

Lie #4: 

The Second Amendment blocks gun regulation. Americans happily place curbs on our rights to religious freedom, blocking people from committing acts of violence, fraud or abuse in the name of faith. Free speech is limited by laws banning libel or incitement.

Americans have a constitutionally protected right to obtain an abortion, yet many of the same people advocating Second Amendment absolutism suddenly lose interest in the constitution when the subject turns to reproductive rights.

As a general rule, people tend to cite constitutional protections when they don't want to debate the merits of an issue. Gun advocates are passionate about civil liberties until those liberties become inconvenient.

Lie #5: 

The solution to gun violence is more gun ownership. This lie would be too bizarre to earn column space, but politicians are actually using it build policy, putting guns in places like schools, churches and bars.

There is no empirical basis for the claim, but it is sometimes accompanied by one misleading data point.

Lie #6: 

Chicago has tight gun restrictions and mass gun violence. Ergo, gun laws don't work. Chicago's seemingly intractable problem with gun violence is one of America's fondest fascinations. It's also a myth. Chicago has more gun murders than other large cities like New York and Los Angeles, thanks mostly to its long, unsecured border with North Alabamastan (sometimes called Alabama). However, Chicago's murder rate still rate as high as many with loose gun restrictions.

* Right to Self Defense

Lie #7: 

We should enforce existing gun laws before imposing new ones. Calls for more determined enforcement of existing gun laws are the most darkly cynical lie in the debate over guns. Our gun laws are carefully crafted to be unenforceable.

One law stands out as the most critical obstacle to enforcement of gun restrictions. A minor provision of the 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act bans states or federal agencies from building gun registries.

Six states already possessed some form of registry, thus were exempted, but further efforts to break the enforcement of gun regulations made it difficult for them to leverage that information in any useful way.

Lie #8: 

We need guns to protect ourselves from the government. Claims of a Second Amendment right to overthrow the government may be false, but they get us very close to understanding the honest motives behind the gun lobby.

Until 2008, no federal court had ever recognized an individual constitutional right to own a firearm.

Lie #9: 

No legislation can curb gun deaths in the US. Americans now have more guns in circulation than citizens. No credible regulatory scheme, no matter how smart or ambitious, is likely to bring the rate of gun deaths in America in line with global standards anytime soon. Whatever we achieve politically in the near term can only be a down-payment on a better world for our children.

Lie #10: 

Americans oppose tighter gun regulation. When presented with concrete proposals to regulate guns, majorities of Americans almost always favor them.

Best DEFENSE against Guns

Nobody wants to be the victim of an attack. It's not like we walk to our cars after work hoping to get mugged in a dark alleyway, but unfortunately, many of us grow up hearing that we're constantly in danger of being victimized.

But have you ever stopped to think what you'd actually do if you found yourself in a threatening situation? Do you know how to defend yourself?

About Gun Crime

Are you prepared to counter an attack?

Attackers aren't always the creeper in the parking lot or the weird guy hanging out in a dark alley. In fact, more than 80% of all rape victims know their assailant beforehand. Most attacks happen when you're the least prepared to counter them.

If you find yourself in a situation where you need to fight back, a good self-defense weapon can come in handy. However, carrying a self-defense weapon, whether it be a gun, knife, taser, or any other option, is only one aspect of defending yourself from an attacker, and the truth is, your defense weapon is completely useless if you aren't prepared to use it, especially against someone you don't expect.

Be Prepared!

With a proper plan in place, you can avoid becoming a victim. Here's a quick list of things you can do to prepare yourself to counter an attack:

  • Know your weapon. You need to get to know your carry item as if it were an extension of yourself. Different safety mechanisms can be tricky to operate and will slow you down if you don't know how to operate them. Things like switching off a safeguard, pressing the right button, or uncapping pepper spray are all things you should practice beforehand.
  • Have quick access. You want your weapon in hand when you need it. Fumbling through your purse or pockets during an attack will only help the attacker. Keep your weapon easily accessible. If it's in your purse, put it in a place where it won't get buried or hold it in your hand as you walk to your car at night.
  • Pay attention. The best plans include avoiding dangerous people and locations. Being aware of your surroundings and keeping your distance from potential threats will reduce your chances of being attacked. Knowing the nearest exit or place to run can help you escape as well.

Gun Defense Laws - Survival

When it comes to gun defense laws whichever self-defense item you choose to carry, remember that the goal of self-defense is never to win a fight; it is to survive and escape without injury.

The best defense is always to avoid dangerous people and places. You don't need to be a tactically trained Navy Seal to know how to defend yourself, but you should sit down and have a game plan in case you face an attack. Practice and get to know your weapon, give yourself the best chance to escape unharmed.

Whether it be the US, Canada, Europe, Laws on Defense [Right to Self Defense] are pretty much global. Currently the UK is an exception. The UK applies "common law" to the self defense act. This makes things a little more complicated there. 

Self Defense Canada

Self-defense in Canada is commonly misunderstood. Many people, including our mainstream media, believe Canadians have no right to defend themselves, no matter the circumstances.

They are wrong. The defense of person is the oldest natural right, a right that all living creatures possess. 

Gun Defense Laws

Virtually everyone, even misguided celebrity elites that believe humans only have the right to be victims, believe this obvious truth.

Importantly, as a society we openly recognize this fact and provide defensive tools to those who may need protection as they carry out the state's business, such as our police. (Remember this next time someone says handguns were only made to kill people. They were not. They were made to defend people.)

So without question, we have a natural right to defend our fragile bodies, and those of our loved ones too. If need arises, we will intuitively and unquestionably do so regardless of what statutes say. But what does it say?

Gun Defense Laws in Canada

Here then, are the three things you absolutely must know about self-defense laws and therefore gun defense laws in Canada.

Number One: Defending yourself, contrary to popular belief, is NOT against Canadian law. The Criminal Code of Canada very specifically allows self-defense and defense of property.

Number Two: Should you find yourself in the unfortunate position where you must defend yourself with deadly force, you will be arrested and charged with a crime. Crown prosecutors seemingly don't like Canadians doing what is required to stay alive so you absolutely will go to trial on whatever charges are laid against you.

Number Three: Unless you've done something terribly wrong, the odds of you being convicted are on your side. The CSSA has dealt with many of these types of cases over the years, and in only one case was the individual convicted.

Therefore you absolutely must understand the law and your responsibility under it once you engage the individual or individuals attempting to do harm to you and/or your loved ones.

There are things you cannot do or you will certainly go to prison. Your use of force must be "reasonable" in the totality of the circumstances and that reasonableness will be decided by a judge months or even years after the fact.

Criminal Code of Canada

Here, from the Criminal Code of Canada Section 34, is the self-defense provision in view:

34 (1) A person is not guilty of an offence if

(a) they believe on reasonable grounds that force is being used against them or another person or that a threat of force is being made against them or another person;

(b) the act that constitutes the offence is committed for the purpose of defending or protecting themselves or the other person from that use or threat of force; and

(c) the act committed is reasonable in the circumstances.

As you can see, the law is very clear. Canadians are NOT restricted from defending themselves.

34 (2) In determining whether the act committed is reasonable in the circumstances, the court shall consider the relevant circumstances of the person, the other parties and the act, including, but not limited to, the following factors:

(a) the nature of the force or threat;

(b) the extent to which the use of force was imminent and whether there were other means available to respond to the potential use of force;

(c) the person's role in the incident;

(d) whether any party to the incident used or threatened to use a weapon;

(e) the size, age, gender and physical capabilities of the parties to the incident;

(f) the nature, duration and history of any relationship between the parties to the incident, including any prior use or threat of force and the nature of that force or threat;

(f.1) any history of interaction or communication between the parties to the incident;

(g) the nature and proportionality of the person's response to the use or threat of force; and

(h) whether the act committed was in response to a use or threat of force that the person knew was lawful.

Best Defenses to know about Guns

When an assailant is within arms-reach, it is easier to disarm them than an attacker with a handgun. And in-home defensive situations are always at close range. And the power of a shotgun requires an operator capable of withstanding the significant recoil.

For Novice shooters and if you've ever handled a shotgun the first time you pulled the trigger on a shotgun and felt that recoil. I still remember the bruise on my shoulder because I didn't seat the butt-stock of the weapon properly.

It takes time and skill to handle a shotgun..

Handguns on the other hand being more versatile are more dangerous to combat.. as I've stressed in my first article weapons and knife defense.. there are no winners or losers when it comes to escaping an attacker with weapon.

His/her main motive is to kill, hurt with dangerous results.

YOUR MAIN GOAL IS SURVIVAL

Misconceptions about Gun Defense

In a knife attack, no matter the approach, know you are at risk of being cut. With anyone trained in knife attacks, you are in vulnerable situation before you realize it.

Best defense is to stay calm, don't tense muscles & no sudden movements, engage in conversation to distract. Giving opportunity to react to the attack.

As an example if perpetrator is requesting monies, let them know you have to move to get, thus they are expecting movement on your part. Thus giving the opportunity to react. Always assume they carry more than one weapon and possibly more than one perpetrator.

When it comes to a Gun, there's no racing the bullet. And looking down a barrel of a gun is no fun.

Examining your surroundings execute proper tactical disarmament, be sure your training techniques are reputable to street fighting scenarios..

Understanding guns

Caliber doesn't matter much, .380 ACP to .45 ACP and everything in between will stop anyone 2/3 of the time within 2 rounds.

The knockdown power that comes with higher-caliber pistols is complimented by their ease-of-use. By understanding weapons and guns gives you survival chance. In the event of of confrontation being able to move quickly means the difference between life and death.

It's always better to presume that you will be fighting a trained fighter/weapons perpetrator. The problem with that assumption is that not everyone attacks the way that someone will attack you.

Misconceptions about Gun Defense


The Perpetrator is NOT going to passively stand there while you attempt to disarm him

What few people realize is that a wild perpetrators have intent He/she previously orchestrated the plan ahead of time, their intent is to rob or murder to get away. They want to commit the crime intended leaving no witnesses and leave as quickly as possible.

Even more dangerous because the attacker is unpredictable, his defensive moves can hurt you badly you will either get mauled, if not killed.

Fights are never static and his ability to move is his ability to hurt you. Your best defence first and foremost is distract by conversing with the perpetrator, and observing any window of opportunity to react effectively.

You can successfully fight an armed attacker

This is a lie.. you cannot "fight" an armed opponent. You can survive against one! You might even be able to successfully put him down before he causes you any major damage.

However whatever you do, it must be fast, effective and brutal. If it isn't, then you will not stop him before he causes you major damage.

In Conclusion

Gun Defense Laws CONCLUSION

In conclusion an attacker, with any idea of what he or she is doing, whether it be a knife or gun will overwhelm you with a hail of cuts or shoot with one deadly bullet.

And with knife, they will start at the nearest body part and end in a vital target. Within a second you may lose your fingers!  

And also have severed tendons of your arms, and be finished with a stab to your eye, or throat, or trunk.

Therefore get as much knowledge as you can prepare yourself on techniques of weapons fighting is to your benefit.  Observe prison inmates and knife experts practice knife fighting.

See what really works and what doesn't against a knife attack! Stay safe and use proper judgments when leaving yourself vulnerable in the streets. Please feel free to leave a comment here.
