Pressure Point ST-35

* Pressure Point ST-35

Kick them in the knee cap! Not a bad idea really! The knee cap dislocates and breaks pretty easy, and not much force is needed! But there is a better place. That is Pressure Point ST-35!

Pressure Point ST-35 - Location & Effect

This is a very important pressure point in acupuncture. So if that is of  interest you I do suggest looking to this more. But that is beyond the scope of the article.  

When the knee is flexed, the pressure point ST-35 is in the depression below the patella and
lateral to the patella tendon. It is a trauma pressure point. This causes intense local pain and knee injury will also result! This will be immediately followed by severe kidney chi drainage and damage causing immediate loss of power and tiredness.

In someone with kidney issues serious problems, like kidney failure, can and will result over time. This can also be a knockout pressure point because of the trauma and reaction of the brain. 

Striking ST-35

This is not an easy strike! While the knee is easy to strike itself targeting this pressure point will require a lot of practice and opportunity!

And training to strike this area is a great idea, remember that any strike to the knee, if there is sufficiency force will result in damage. 

Knee strikes are conflict enders

^ Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Training is the most important thing to consider when looking at self defense.

While an intellectual study like Kyusho Jitsu can cause a dramatic increase in the understanding and effectiveness of the art you study there is no substitute for physical training

We live in very challenging times. And in my opinion martial arts training is going to go underground and online. I hope I am wrong, and I guess time will tell.

Why Study Kyusho Jitsu?

Why Study Kyusho Jitsu

Why Study Kyusho Jitsu

You study martial arts and train hard every night! And you have been doing it for years! So, Why Study Kyusho Jitsu? What possible reasons could there be for doing this? Let take a look at the main reasons every martial artist should study the science of pressure point self defense.

Often times some martial artist believe Kyusho is a threat to their traditions and systems. This is simply just not true! Kyusho Jitsu, pressure points exist in all systems and styles. However this is usually not addressed and left to the idea of learning to STRIKE correctly.  For some students this is fine, however most students simply need more information.

And most of them want to too!

Why Study Kyusho Jitsu - Intellectual Pursuit

Pressure Point study, or Kyusho Jitsu as I teach it is an intellectual pursuit. I make an assumption that you train in the martial arts or some kind of Combat System. If you are not doing this then the benefits other than intellectual will not be there. You will only do what you train to do!

And I do not teach you how to strike. I do explain how to strike properly, with a correctly formed fist as an example, and with 2 Way Action. But I do not teach the basics of the martial arts here. So, why study Kyusho Jitsu? It will improve the effectiveness of your strikes, throws etc.

That is the main benefit! Improving effectiveness of our martial art is critical as we age and can no longer do the things we did in our 20's! 

But this is a long journey!

Reverse Engineering!

The idea behind the method in which I teach Kyusho Jitsu is to have you reverse engineer your training. What do I mean by this? First you look at the areas of the body your style teaches you to strike. This is after all where you will be most effective!

Then you examine the area for pressure points within this range! These are the best places for you to begin! From there you can expand what you are doing.

When someone says you cannot strike a pressure point under the stress of battle this happens for 2 reasons!

  1. There training is not sufficient
  2. They do not understand that training is first, pressure points are second

Anything else is putting the cart before the horse. Ego is also a major factor in stopping people from learning. Especially in these rather bizzard modern times. 

Better Kata Understanding

Another major reason as they why study Kyusho Jitsu is to develop an better understanding of your Kata.  

In any Kata you are striking pressure points. This understanding is critical to development as a martial artists. 

This deep understanding help the brain to build connections to movement and area that are being attacked in defense. 

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

But not everyone sees this! And that is unfortunate. The tradition of Kata is so important to a well rounded martial arts education. 

In Conclusion

KWhy Study Kyusho Jitsu CONCLUSION

I do want to leave you today with another article on this topic called 5 Benefits of Kyusho Jitsu Training.

I am sure you will enjoy this article also! But no matter what I write about or how much information I supply to students there is nothing more important than the physical training in your art!

In today's dumpster fire world that becomes a challenge. However we can always find a way!

Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

^ Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

Attack the knees they say! OK that sounds like a good idea! But exactly how do you do this? What is the best way? Today I will spend a few minutes discussing 4 pressure points located at the knees and the meridians involved. A place I refer to as the Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross.

Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross - Pressure Points 


There are 2 meridians running down the legs and 4 pressure points located at the knee joint that makeup the Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross. When attacked correctly these cause the knee to collapse and the attacker to go down.

Let's take a look at these pressure points now.



SP-9 & Sp-10

SP - Grand Cross


Here we are going to discuss pressure points Spleen SP-09 and SP-10. First SP-09 is located on the lower border of the medial condyle of the tibia.

At the depression between the posterior border of the tibia and the gastrocnemius in the upper part of the origin of the soleus muscle. 

Pressure Point SP-10, when the knee is flexed, the point is located 2 cun above the Medio Superior border of the patella, on the bulge of the medial portion of the Quadriceps
Femoris.

At the superior margin of the medial condyle of the femur, in the medial margin of the Vastus Medialis muscle. Another way of locating this point is to cup your right palm to the patient's left knee, with the thumb on the medial side and the other four fingers directed proximal to the pressure point is located where the tip of your thumb rests.

I will cover the attack of these points later in the article.

ST-34 & ST-36


Now we will take a look at the outside of the leg with ST-34 and ST-36. ST-34 is 2 cun above the laterosuperior border of the patella, between the rectus femoris and the vastus lateralis muscles of the thigh. 

And ST-36 is located 2 cun above the latero superior border of the patella, between the Rectus Femoris and the vastus lateralis muscles of the thigh.

^ Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

Attacking the Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross

* Quads

To attack these pressure points individually is a waste of time. These would take a knuckle striking exactly the correct spot, which on the street is useless.

However the can be attacked very effectively with a kick or a stomp or the foot!

And like the name implies you strike across from one pressure point to the other in a cross like manner! Imagine an X on the knee, and you will attack either up and across to the other side or down and across to the other side.

Very simply really! Use cautious when training as the results are profound.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Jitsu Grand Cross CONCLUSION


This is an excellent set of pressure points to study and add to your self defense system! It causes the knee to "give out" on any person I have ever tried this on.

And the bonus on a person with a larger frame, assuming weight on the knee attacked, they will go down to the ground and dislocating the joint ending the FIGHT.

Deadly Back Pressure Points

Shares

Deadly Back Pressure Points

* Deadly Back Pressure Points

Today I a going to look at the most Deadly Back Pressure Points! This is going to be a list that includes the back and the back of the head and neck. Please note all pressure points on the back have the potential to be very dangerous! Therefore extreme care needs to be used when training to assure Uki safety!

Deadly Back Pressure Points - BL-10

This is perhaps the most dangerous of all pressure points on the back of the body! BL-10 has been covered in a previous article which is linked but it is well worth a second look. 

Pressure Point BL-10 is located 1.3 cun lateral to GV-15, within the posterior hairline on the lateral side of the trapezium in the origin of the trapezium and in its deep position in the semispinalis capitis muscle. 

* Dim Mak Pressure Point BL-10

And BL-10 is found just below the Medulla Oblongata, which is the lowest part of the brain stem. It is about two centimetres long.

The nerve fibers cross here, causing one side of the brain to receive information from the opposite side of the body. This is the control centre of the brain for many vital bodily functions. Therefore making the area very dangerous.

Hence one of the very dangerous effects of a strike here is damage to the brain stem which is right there! Unconsciousness will result and potential death and delayed death (Dim Mak) if a Chi strike is used and the electrical system is disrupted. 

Therefore please read the article linked above for greater details!

Deadly Back Pressure Points - GB-20

Not quite as dangerous, however very effective is Pressure Point GB-20.  

The 5 Best Knockout Pressure Points


GB-20 is located on the back of the head at the posterior aspect of the neck, below the occipital bone, in the depression between the upper portion of the Sternocleidomastoideus muscle and the Trapezius muscle.

A low to medium strike will cause a knockout and a hard strike can result in brain damage. Great local pain is also present with any strike. Concussions are always a risk with head pressure points. 

While Pressure Point GB-20 is commonly used for demonstrations of Neurological Knockouts there are dangers associated with it that do need to be addressed. While no where near as dangerous as BL-10 caution still needs to be used on this pressure point. 

GB-20 lies on the Greater Occipital Nerve as you can see in the diagram above. This is obviously tied into the functions of the Trapezius Muscle [Left] as well as other functions. 

Deadly Back Pressure Points - Bladder Meridian

For this the final part of the article Deadly Back Pressure Points I am going to address the Bladder Meridian on the right side of the body versus specific pressure points.  

The reason begin is this is the path of the Associated Alarm Points which basically makes everything dangerous and deadly!

Striking Associated Alarm Points like as an example BL-15. Pressure Point BL-15 is the Associated Alarm Point for the Heart.  And striking this pressure point has a direct effect on the neurological aspects of the heart itself. 

The Associated Alarm Points

In other words a correct strike with 2 Way Action, plus correct direction will stop the heart immediately! 

This applies to all Associated Alarm Points and the organ they represent! Please read that article on Associated Alarm Points

In Conclusion

Deadly Back Pressure Points CONCLUSION

I am sure from this article you can see the importance of the study of these specific pressure points and the entire area.

In fact I could discuss almost every pressure point! And please remember this blog with 200 plus articles is a wealth of Kyusho Jitsu - Pressure Point information.

Kyusho Joint Locks Octagon

Shares

Kyusho Joint Locks Octagon

* Kyusho Joint Locks Octagon

Joints in the body are a wonderful thing, until they stop working or cause pain! I remember the days when I addressed my knees as "right" or "left." Today they are referred to as "bad" knee or "worse" knee. But today I am going to talk about 3 terms together! Kyusho Joint Locks Octagon, how they related, and how combining them makes everything more effective!

Kyusho Joint Locks Octagon - Kyusho Jitsu

Let's begin with the pressure point or Kyusho Jitsu relationship to a Joint Lock. I have linked you back to another article on Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks. This will give you a more complete view.

What I wish to refer to in this article is the method in which we add Kyusho to a joint lock. First the movements are not based on large movement, but small circles. This is something I teach in depth in my Advanced Hapkido Home Study Course, but the original knowledge comes from Professor Wally Jay's Small Circle JuJitsu

The use of small circles over the tradition large movements cause much more pain! Plus the addition of understand fulcrum/lever activation is a must! I also suggest an understanding of the 3 different joint types in the body. Also I do explain more about fulcrum / lever activation in my article on 2 Way Action.

Here is a short video on Fulcrum / Lever activation.

In a nutshell this means understanding that the fulcrum is closest point on the lock to the body after the lock has been applied. 

So what about pressure points? First you will often in pressure points located around and very close to the joints themselves. The knees are a great example! However applying a lock on a smaller joint will cause the meridians affected to distort, causing a Kyusho effect due to stretching of the meridian. The more energy in a meridian the greater the affect! Elongating a meridian cause more energy to flow.

Kyusho Joint Locks Octagon - Octagon

Secrets of the Octagon

I won't go deep into the Joint Lock in this Kyusho Joint Locks Octagon article because I have linked one article specifically for you above. However we will discuss Octagon in some details!

Martial arts is taught for the most part in a linear fashion. Back and forth. That is fine when teaching beginners, but this movement must evolve!

The issue is that the evolution is to ring control, the circling you see boxers to.

This is useless in a self defense situation! Self Defense is NOT fighting. this is where movement in the Octagon comes into play! Octagon movement is about moving on angles to obtain a better mechanical position and therefore power. Proper Body Mechanics is critical! Body mechanics is a cornerstone of Kyusho Jitsu and Hapkido.

Also standing directly in front of someone is a game of dominance! When you move on an angle you take that power away from the attacker! But I do go into great details about this in my Octagon Video Courses. I do have an Octagon eBook also!

In Conclusion

I am hoping this article helps you see that there is always more to learn in the martial arts. This information has been rarely taught in the modern era.

There are many reasons, but that does not mean it needs to still remain hidden.

Learn this information and teach it! Let's keep this all alive!

Alarm Point CV-14

Alarm Point CV-14

 Alarm Point CV-14

I am a martial arts teacher who specializes in Pressure Points. My area of expertise is very specific. They are Kyusho Jitsu as well as my eclectic root art of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido. I do not follow the martial arts industry, other instructors or styles. I am going to give you a video below to explain a little more. But today we are going to discuss a very important pressure point that is Alarm Point CV-14. 

You can learn more about Alarm Points from the link provided. 

Alarm Point CV-14 - Location & Dangers

Alarm Point CV-14 is located on the mid-line of the abdomen, 6 cun above the umbilicus or 1 cun below the Xiphoid process of the sternum.

This is one of the most dangerous pressure points on the body! People have been known to die when struck, for instance with a baseball, right on the pressure point.

This pressure point can actually stop the heart dead in its tracks.

* Alarm Point CV-14

A person receiving a strike here, damaging the Xiphoid process can die from a coughing and/ or vomiting attack! Not to mention the physical damage that can be done to the heart muscle itself from the breaking of the xiphoid and sternum. 

Alarm Point for the Heart

As I also mentioned Alarm Point CV-14 is the Alarm Point for the heart itself (the organ.) Any strike to this pressure point has a direct effect on the health of the heart itself. If the person suffers from underlying heart issues death can result down the road.

* Alarm Point CV-14

This is also know in Dim Mak as "delayed death."  And if we are honest the vast majority of people today are in poor health, and overweight. This adds stress to the heart muscle, and also the lungs and other organs.

Thus making the study of Kyusho Jitsu in general and Alarm Points in specific very important! Learning to attack the systems that govern the organs of the body is a game changer! 

However in this article I can only touch on the subject. Also read the article here called Pressure Point CV-17 which is the Alarm Point for the pericardium, AKA Heart 2. 

In Conclusion

Alarm Point CV-14 CONCLUSION

The more you understand how pressure point work, and the harder you train in your root art the better your results will be!

Today, people do not want to do the work! The want an intellectual answer to a physical problem but will not do the physical work so the solution can be applied.

I will also include several links to related Alarm Point articles below to further your understanding about these critical pressure points.

Kyusho Jitsu Learning Online

* Kyusho Jitsu Learning Online

Our world is a very different place then it was even 9 months ago. Now no matter your opinion on the circumstances we face as world today one thing I think we can all agree on. Nothing is going to even be the same again! This is why Kyusho Jitsu Learning Online will become the "new normal" and if you want to learn I do not think there will be many other options. 

This means that coming in 2021 I am going to be looking at expanding my Kyusho Jitsu / Pressure Point teachings by doing more invitation and more seminars and teaching classes online!

And today with this idea in mind I installed / created a Video Conferencing Website similar in idea to Zoom, but secured via password and end to end encryption on the video conferences.

This is the method we will be adopting for my Kyusho Jitsu Coaching calls in the future as apposed to Facebook or Skype, 2 very intrusive platforms who are against privacy. And to me online privacy is one of the most important topics today! This is why I wrote a book on the subject.

These coaching sessions will also be recordable for the students. That is a great bonus!

Kyusho Jitsu University

This is going to mean an expanding of courses offered at Kyusho Jitsu University this coming New Year (2021). More information on any new courses will be coming as we approach 2021. 

Another bonus of this new Kyusho Jitsu Learning Online service is I will resume conducting Kyusho Jitsu Webinars. Right now I am not sure as to how often I will conduct these webinars, but perhaps monthly as I was doing before! 

I am looking at doing a test webinar on Saturday December 5th 2020. The topic and registration will be available from the form below! The topic and time will be announced in the mail list you subscribe to after registration. 

Your can subscribe to Free Webinar Announces from below!


In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

The world is going to become more and more online dependent over time. There is no way around this at this point in history.

I have been talking for years about the end of the physical dojo and I believe we are close. Now my dojo is operating, but the restrictions are many! 

Fortunately I have the expertise in the computer field to run our own servers and provide true privacy for the students. And when it comes to online learning this is a must! I am really looking forward to the coming months as I launch new courses for high level Kyusho Jitsu Learning Online.

Self Defense No More

Shares

Self Defense No More

Self Defense No More

I cannot save the world, and the world does not want to be saved anyways! After "beating a dead horse" for years I will be teaching Self Defense No More! It is just not worth my time or effort! I will continue to teach the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu, as well as my root art of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido!

But the focus on Self Defense is done.  I will focus on the art, and the intellectual aspects ONLY. So let me explain why as we go along. 

Self Defense No More - Apathy

Years ago I released many different self defense eBooks and products. And many people did purchase these!

An my thanks to them!

But out of 10 people who did purchase, only 1 of them on average did the work and the certifications.

Even though many police and security officers loved the content and said I was DEAD ON with what I was teaching! The martial arts world does not care. Why? The real thing is not sensational enough for people! They want the Hollywood fantasy not the real thing.

I was recently watching a video ad that is at my Dojo in Windsor, featuring a martial artists I do not personally know, claiming to be a self defense guru, and teaching absolute CRAP to a lot of people! Basically ring fighting! But this is what people want!

So if this is what people want, then go for it! I pray the violence issues slow down and you never need these skills! But ring fighting, sport do not translate to the streets.

What am I going to be teaching?

I will be focusing on the science of Kyusho, teaching all that I know to those interested, but I will cease the promotion of things like Humane Pressure Point Tactics. And I will continue to create courses and contents, but the application of the information will be left up to you, the martial art student and instructor.

I will also be focusing on Hapkido, and proving the information people want to learn, as well as the addition of Cane Defense to this. But the natural progression will be left to the student.

Will you even notice?

Likely not. I looked deeply at my read statistics for the blog. And anything to do with self defense comes in dead last! Pun intended! An article on Deadly Pressure Points, well that one does great and so that is the type of information I am going to be giving you!

In Conclusion

Self Defense no more CONCLUSION

I will be teaching self defense no more! The products will all remain, the articles here will disappear in time because unread content hurts my Google search rankings!

For the people who read the articles on self defense, we are like minded and most of you did not need my advice anyways! But I greatly appreciated the awesome comments and support!

For everyone else, well I know you enjoy the content coming.  To the world? The words of Aristotle come to mind. "Tolerance and Apathy are the final virtues of a dying society."

Truer words have never been spoken about today!

Kyusho Hapkido Octagon

Kyusho Hapkido Octagon

( Kyusho Hapkido Octagon

How does Kyusho Hapkido Octagon all work together to form one martial art system? How did this happen, and more importantly WHY did it happen? Let's take a look at the martial art I ended up founding, and the reasons why it happened to begin with.

Kyusho Hapkido Octagon - Hapkido

We must first begin with my root art of Hapkido, or the more accurate name of Kuk Sul Hapkido. Unfortunately there is little information available online, or at least that I can find. The system I come directly out of is the late Chung W Oh from Kitchener Ontario.


Can you find me in the picture?

* Kyusho Jitsu Winter Season

Mr Oh came to Canada from Korea as part of the big Tae Kwon Do wave of General Choi Hong Hi. Mr Oh and the General were very close and GM Oh is even found in the Generals Encyclopedia of Tae Kwon Do,  My direct instructor was Master Philip Hollohan, who was one of Mr Oh's first students when he came to Canada. (Philip Hollohan is center picture above)

This is the Hapkido part of the Kyusho Hapkido Octagon connection.

Kyusho Hapkido Octagon - Octagon

Secrets of the Octagon

Part two of the is the Natural Laws of Motion, AKA the Octagon.

In approximately October of 2000 I began my Octagon training with a Kempo Grand Master by the name of Richard Buchan from the Toronto area.

Today I do not believe GM Buchan is still teaching, which is why I make the claim to be the only person currently still teaching the laws of the Octagon. I could be wrong, but I have not no found anyone else doing these teachings. 

The organization Kosho Ryu International does still have its website online. However it has not been updated in years!

Kyusho Hapkido Octagon - Kyusho

The final leg, or major leg of the journey began in late 2001 when I attended a George Dillman seminar at Steve Stewart's Modern Martial Arts in London Ontario.  After this seminar I was hooked on the pressure point science of Kyusho Jitsu and began a 10 year plus journey as a direct student of GM Stewart. 

With Steve Stewart. George Dillman and Louise St Jacques

With Steve Stewart. George Dillman and Louise St Jacques

All of which was incorporated in the root art I founded in 2006 called Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Hapkido Octagon CONCLUSION

The reason for the creation of my own systems was seeing the shortfalls and missing aspects of my original root art.

It took me 22 years to found the art, which is self defense based and has no sport aspects at all!

Big Elephant

Big Elephant

^Big Elephant

Have you ever heard the phrase, “There’s an elephant in the room…” I want to address the big elephant named “Doubt” that’s standing in the Self-Defense industry right now.

But before I get into that…

If there’s one thing I know about you… It’s that you’re looking ‘for a better way to do self-defense” that’s more practical, powerful, and proven-to-work (and Kyusho Jitsu Self-Defense is nothing but that!) 

However, self-defense is a skill that’s still “toughen up and hit hard” in people’s eyes… Kind of like Hulk and G. I. Jane (remember it?). Imagine showing up to a camp wearing a headgear, mouth guard, ear protectors, shin guard, pair of boxing gloves, big knife, small knife, gun, pepper spray, tactical pen, and flash light.

The only thing you might use is a flash light… would you agree? Unfortunately, that’s the reality for most self-defense classes. They’re teaching how to hit back for a few specific scenarios to falsely make you feel so strong and perfectly ready for a sudden attack.

And what happens? 

It just doesn’t work. Hype up women for two hours by making them do elbow strikes, knee kicks, shrimp, choke holds and escapes. The martial arts schools teaching the techniques and call it women’s self-defense class (I love and practice martial arts, by the way). Many of them disregard an anatomy of an attack on a woman, psychology of the victims and predators, teach complicated techniques that nobody remembers once they leave a class.

And if you search Self-Defense on the internet, it is basically about the guns and martial arts.

I had to deal with a few predators in my life. I grew up in Japan and I wasn’t old enough to have a gun or didn’t live in an environment that allowed me to have a gun. This applies to many young victims in the world as well.

So, what is a doubt in self-defense?

Yes, you’re right, it’s a doubt for its practicality and not many instructors have actually tested what they teach in reality.

I wanted to bring another big elephant, which keeps growing really big this year.

In fact, she has become too huge for people to ignore it. This has been existed throughout our human history and an internet and technology (bitcoin included) have made it the second biggest criminal enterprise in the world after the drugs…

Human Trafficking.

I’ve been supporting a human trafficking rescue organization for last six years and wanted to contribute more.

There’s no day that passes by without us seeing the “Missing Children”alerts and the rescued children and arrests of the criminals. 

* Human Trafficking

Human-trafficking is a sophisticated and technologically advanced criminal operation and we’re simply way behind.

Here is a thing…

If you aren’t going against it, you’re standing with it. And I won’t be standing with this giant evil enterprise nor should you. Because of these two big elephants, I created a 3-day long virtual The Women’s Self-Defense Summit (held in September 2020) with 26 experts with 26 different topics.

The topics covered were from Trauma-Informed Self-Defense, Hidden Real Danger, Gym V.S. Reality, Know the Signs of Human Trafficking, and more.

In Conclusion

Big Elephant CONCLUSION

The summit had 1,137 people registered and donated $1,000 to a rescue organization.

I’m making this summit available for those who missed in September as we all need to be continuously educated and fighting against human-trafficking.

This is more than self-defense. It’s an empowerment. It’s a movement to stand against things that are destroying humanity in many ways.

The Women’s Self-Defense Summit would be a great resource for you and your family to live more empowered and inspired through self-defense no matter where you are in this self-defense journey. Join the Women’s Self-Defense Summit After Party to get inspired and give back.
