Kyusho Jitsu Basics

Understanding Kyusho Jitsu Basics

Anyone who is interested in the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu must begin with a solid understanding of the pressure point itself. So today I will offer this up for not just beginners, but advanced students as well for review. Kyusho Jitsu Basics, understanding the pressure point. 

Kyusho Jitsu Basics - What is a Pressure Point?

Before you begin to discover things like principles you need to understand "what a pressure point is." There is nothing magic nor mystical about these little spots on the body. They are really very basic.

Kyusho Jitsu Basics -The Facial Nerves

To the left you need an example of some facial nerves. The one I will point out is coming to the mid section of the nose. Right at this "Y" branch is an "extraordinary" pressure point called M - Hn-9. When struck correctly this pressure point causes immense pain. 

Pressure Points relate to nerves. Therefore a pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve end, crosses over another nerve, or branches off like a "Y."  Pressure Points lie on channels called "meridians" that represent an electrical path of energy in the body caused by electromagnetic induction created by electrical impulses in the nerves themselves. This is very similar as to the function of a transformer. 

Kyusho Jitsu Basics - Types of Pressure Points

There are 3 basic types of pressure points when it comes to striking them. The 3 basics types are as follows: 

  1. Rub Points
  2. Push Points 
  3. Strike Points

There is no definitive path to which pressure point responds to what therefore you need a solid knowledge of the pressure points you want to strike. This is best done by looking at the striking patterns of your root art and seeing what you are hitting. 

The Pressure Point Stomach 5

The next thing we would like at in Kyusho Jitsu Basics is what I would call the "category" of pressure point. There are 2 categories, the first is pressure point that when activated cause "pain" and the second are those that cause "dysfunction" of the brain and/or the nervous system. 

Dysfunction has different flavors depending on the pressure point. They vary from the ability to use part of the body, to unconsciousness and in the most dramatic instances death. Therefore caution must be used! And education, understanding how it all works is a must!

Kyusho Jitsu Basics - Activation

There are many people in the world who do not believe pressure points work. And this is because they have not done the training to understand how they work. And today when people do not understand something they ridicule it. Must be hard to be that pathetic. When I do not understand something i either learn it, or forget it.

Kyusho Jitsu World Weekly News - RMATC Update

I come from a linage or a Korea Master who moved to Canada in the late 60's. His name was Chung Won Oh, an amazing man and martial artist. He pasted away several years ago now. 

But his teaching methods were of the old ways. He said "twist" the hand and hit correctly. Today we call this because of Grand Master Wally Jay, 2 Way Action

So as an example to have an opening to hit the side of the jaw with a right hand. You can attempt a hard blunt trauma strike. Likely you will miss, and if you connect you can often times cause the issue to escalate because of the anger and adrenaline rush that precedes. 

Or you can train to hit correctly using 2 Way Action and target any of the multiple pressure point available like ST-05. This will cause brain dysfunction and end the attack.  The truth is blunt trauma does not work as well as people like to think it does. Want proof? Look at some of the hits taken in an MMA or boxing match. You cannot train to take and be immune to blunt trauma. 

If blunt trauma worked, the fighter would be over in seconds, not rounds.

Kyusho Jitsu Basics - Area of activation

The next thing I always hear is that pressure points are too small to hit with accuracy.  This is also false. The actual "size" of a pressure point is very small, like the head of a pin. However the area of activation is much larger. 

Kyusho Jitsu Basics - pressure point activation size

I refer it it being the approximate size of a Looney, which is a $1 Canadian coin

In Conclusion

Kyusho Jitsu is an intellectual pursue, when combined with your root arts begins to develop the Body-Mind-Spirit aspect always discussed as being a martial and most important element in martial art study.

Apathy Self Defense Today

Apathy Self Defense Today

Crime, Apathy Self Defense Today

Today I want to talk briefly with you about one the endless issues I see in our world today. "APATHY Self Defense today." Now apathy exists across so many issues in our world including the idea of "free speech." Apathy is a life destroyer!

And when it comes to self defense, is can cost you your life! I know because I have been in some bad spots, and I came out OK not because of my martial arts skill, which is partially true, but the way I approach the subject.

Apathy Self Defense Today - a state of Mind

Self Defense and being safe in our world of ever escalating violence is a way of thinking. Most people "pretend" all is OK and try to go about their lives as if nothing is wrong. And the causes of violence today are very different from the years past. Here are some of the things we worried about 25 years ago.

  1. Robbery - assaults
  2. Violence related to drugs and alcohol
  3. Gangs

There were other reasons such as mental illness, but 25 years ago that was marginal!

Knife Crimes

Today we have all of the above because the problems have never and will never be solved. PLUS.....

  1. Religious and political extremism. Contrary to popular "opinion" here the body count is astronomical globally!
  2. SERIOUS enabling of mental illness. When someone is suffering from mental health issues the WORST thing you can do is enable the behavior. 
  3. Failed prison systems releasing dangerous offenders and pedophiles.
  4. Stalking via the loss of Onlin Security & Privacy

And I am sure if I thought about it a while, I could add dozens to this list!

Apathy Self Defense Today - How did this happen?

Apathy Self Defense Today

And the root cause? Apathy, both personal and political. If we look at a country like Venezuela which the UN reports to have a population of about 32 million, which I think is too high consider how people are running to the border to leave, and their murder rate.

Well in 2017 there were over 26,000 murders in Venezuela. This does not count other violent crimes like robbery, assault, sexual assault and kidnapping. Think about this! 

Now New York state is about 20 million people with less than 600 murders the same year. And this is WAY TO HIGH!

But the issue is people think it will never happen in the USA or Canada. APATHY! It is rising yearly, and once year ago Venezuela was nothing like today!

Is there a solution? No, there is a long road to recovery here. But it begins when people wake up! However this happens, it will be one person at a time.

In regard to self defense you need to take your own training very seriously! There is a thought process today that because you are a "fighter" you are OK. Life does not work that way! Sorry! I wish it did! You have to identify the threat, understand the threat in order to deal with the threat.

Apathy Self Defense Today- Causes?

Now these people you "elect" to represent you will LIE and say it is poverty that is the issue. Yet, while talking out of one side of their mouths, they want to bring in more people to the country who cannot support themselves. Brilliant! Just brilliant, and in your apathy you buy this!

About Gun Crime

You do see an issue with this logic?

The truth of the matter is that it is the broken family unit that is the cause of the issue, especially in minority groups. Why is this? Because children need guidance from both mom and dad, FULL TIME.  Your "opinion or feelings" on how things "should be" really doesn't matter because the statistics show the FACTS. 

But today the adults are more concerned about themselves than their children. Concerned about the lies of politics and not worried enough about the ones they brought into the world.

And when someone finds this statement offensive, it tells me they need to look long and hard into the mirror. 

The sciences of psychology have proven my comments, and that is where they come from. Fact and feelings will rarely agree.

Take your personal protection seriously. Because your streets are getting more and more dangerous PROVES the failure of the ideologies your governments represent! 

And I will help you get started!

Pressure Point Stomach 9-10

The Pressure Point Stomach 9-10

Updated May 9th 2020. As we approach the end of this series on various pressure points of the body I encourage you to head over to our eBook website and grab a copy of Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy so that you have this kind of detailed information on every pressure point on the body. So today I conclude with Pressure Point Stomach 9-10, one of the most dangerous pressure points (2) on the body.

Onward!

The Pressure Point Stomach 9-10

Pressure Point Stomach
9-10 - Location

The primary focus of this article is on ST-09. This is because this is arguably the most dangerous of the 2 pressure points. It is however almost impossible to strike one without hitting the other. And they both react pretty much the same.

Pressure Point ST-09 is situated right over the carotid sinus. The carotid sinus is a Baroreceptor, whose purpose is to detect an increase in blood pressure. When it detects an increase, it sends a signal to the vasomotor center of the via the vagus nerve. This initiates a Vasodilatation, and slowing of the heart rate to lower the blood pressure to normal.

Here is an excerpt from my book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy on ST-09


Pressure Point Stomach 9-10 - Affects

When either or both of these pressure points are struck there is an immediate, violent and dangerous response from the brain. The blood pressure will drop quickly causing a "vascular faint" or knockout. This can be accomplished with a low to medium strike. 

A harder strike can cause serious damage to the nervous and arterial systems of the area which will result in death.  Pressure Points Stomach 9-10 are also Dim Mak points because an energy strike to this part of the system, both nervous and vascular, will cause enough "dysfunction" to result in death overtime. 

Pressure Point ST-10 - Location

ST-10 which is considered just as dangerous a pressure point as ST-09 is located at the anterior border of the Sternocleidomastoid Muscle midway between ST-09 and ST-11.

The Sternocleidomastoideus Muscle

Detailed Video on how ST-09 and ST-10 Work!

In Conclusion

The dangers of these 2 Pressure Points CANNOT be overstated. NEVER strike these in training! They are only for life and death street situations.  

With Kyusho Jitsu Training must come responsibility! Now that you are aware of the consequences of striking these 2 pressure points realize that misuse is negligence!

Are there any other dangerous martial arts pressure points you are curious about? Ask here! I am happy to answer!

Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 Painful Point

Shares

Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9

The Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9

Pain is a wonderful thing when it comes to self defense and Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 is one of the excruciatingly painful pressure points when attacked correctly. 

So today let's as a bonus take a look at this little gem of a pressure point. The first thing I will address before we move on is what an Extraordinary Pressure Point is. After the original 361 pressure points were mapped others were discovered. These pressure points, which are nerve ends, do not lie on a meridian. However they do "tend" to take on the characteristics of the meridian they are closest to.

As an example MU-E-28 which is on the Ulna bone takes on the characteristics of the Heart Meridian. 

Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 - Location & Affect

As you can see in the image above Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 is located on the face, approximately one thumb nail above LI-20. This lies very close to a cavity in the skull, which you can feel with your fingers on your own face.

The Facial Nerves

At this area there is a facial nerve that branches into a "Y". The pressure point is attack by pushing in, and rubbing towards the outside. This causes an acceleration in energy and immense pain.  If you seal the back of the head with the other hand this intensify the pain! 

The head with rotate in the direction of the pressure of the rub allowing for control of the attacker. You would strike the Extraordinary Pressure Points M-Hn-9 in the same direction. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Extraordinary Pressure Point are fascinating. These pressure points were mapped after the original set of 361.

There is much question about the exact numbers of Extraordinary Pressure Points, however there are a handful that are excellent for usage in Kyusho Jitsu training.  

If you have a question about this pressure points please leave it in the comments here.

Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy 

Like becoming a doctor, to truly advance in the science of pressure point self defense you need to study the human body. The more information you can digest the better! After I achieved my Master Level in Kyusho Jitsu I picked up a copy of Grey's Anatomy at Dr Steve Stewart's suggest to advance my knowledge. 

I then realized the need for a very comprehensive book of pressure points for the Kyusho Jitsu student, rather then the acupuncture student. Thus Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy was born!

Kyusho Associated Alarm Points

Shares

Kyusho Associated Alarm Points

The Kyusho Associated Alarm Points

The beauty of the Kyusho Associated Alarm Points is one of my favorite subject in all of the science of pressure point self defense. The reason? Because these little gems are just so very powerful! And most people overlook them. 

Located on the Bladder Meridian on the right side, back of the body these pressure points function very differently from others. The reason? Unlike the Alarm Points on the front of the body, the Kyusho Associated Alarm Points on the back of the body have a direct relationship to the neurological aspect or function of the organ they represent. 

Kyusho Associated Alarm Points - What are they?

  • Lung - BL-13
  • Pericardium - BL-14
  • Heart - BL-15
  • Liver - BL-18
  • Gall Bladder - BL-19
  • Spleen - BL-20
  • Stomach - BL-21
  • Triple Warmer -  BL=22
  • Kidney - BL-23
  • Large Intestine - BL-25
  • Small Intestine - BL-27
  • Bladder - BL-28

The function of Associated Alarm Points are not for beginners. And they are obviously harder to access because of their location. However once understood their power cannot to overstated. 

Attacking these pressure points aside from the neurological aspect can also cause a great deal of physical damage. And with many of them there is even the potential for paralysis or even death. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Finally while this article really only begins the discussion of these "special" pressure points it is a start.

As you develop and become proficiency at the usage of the standard Alarm Points on the front of the body the usage of these becomes much more evident. 

Have you had any experience with these kinds of Alarm Points? Feel free to let me know in the comments section at the bottom of the post! And if you want more in depth Alarm Point information take a look at the Kyusho Masters Series


Now there are also 5 other Special Alarm Pressure Points on this meridian however I am not going to get into those in this article. You can learn more about these pressure points and every other pressure point on the body from my book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

All New Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy eBook

The Associated Alarm Points are extremely important to the study of the science of pressure points self defense. When struck correctly, using 2 Way Action along with the correct angle and direction these pressure points have a dramatic affect on the function of the body!

They are also wonderful setup pressure points for neurological knockouts! And YES sound does work in conjunction with Associated Alarm Points!

Deadly Pressure Point Liver 14

Shares

Pressure Point Liver 14

The Pressure Point Liver 14

Today we will take a look at a pressure point of incredible importance, but it very often overlooked. That is Pressure Point Liver 14 [LV-14]. Below are some excerpts from my eBook released on January 15th 2019 called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.

Please note this is a very dangerous pressure point and should not be played with. 

Pressure Point Liver 14 - Location

LV-14 is located on the mamillary line, 2 ribs below the nipple, in the 6th intercostal space. This point is 6 cun above the navel & 3.5 cun lateral to GV-14, near the medial end of the 6th intercostal space.

The Intercostal Space

Pressure Point Liver 14 - Caution

This is a very important pressure point because it can have many different dangerous effects. A solid strike on the left side can cause the heart to stop. The lungs can also collapse from a strong hit.

A knockout can also occur from a medium strike, as well as temporary vision issues. Not to mention serious liver damage occurring instantly and, in the future, if untreated.

LV-14 is also an Alarm Point which means it has a direct relationship with the organ itself Each organ on the body has 2 special points associated with them. These pressure points are not necessarily on the meridian associated with the organ either. These names of these special pressure points is Alarm Points and Associated Alarm Points.

The Associated Alarm Points

Associated Alarm Point relate directly to the neurological aspect of the organ they represent. All Associated Alarm Points are located on the Bladder Meridian on the right side of the body. 

How Alarm Points function and their importance is covered in depth in my advanced Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Courses. Beginning at Kyusho 2nd Dan Black Belt. However I do have some workshop footage of Alarm Points found at this LINK. Plus these are covered in great details in the Kyusho Master's Series eBook/Video set. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

From this article you can get a general idea of just how important Pressure Point Liver 14 actually is, especially because it is an Alarm Point.

And it is a very important pressure point in the study of Dim Mak.

3 Self Defense Lies

Shares

Top 3 Self Defense Lies

Top 3 Self Defense Lies

I have an interest in marketing. Not the kind of marketing that comes out of colleges but from the real world stuff. Seeing what works and why it does not work. This is also a lesson in psychology! People buy things for a reason. But in my industry there is a lot of miss information, especially when it comes to self defense. So today we will look at the TOP 3 Self Defense lies told by instructors that students believe.

Top 3 Self Defenses Lies #1 - Black Belts are Self Defense Experts

This is the most well known of the 3 Self Defense Lies, and the most believed! Today most of what is being taught in the world as a martial art has little to nothing to do with self defense. More of it is for the purpose of "sport" which is fine.

Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

As long as you are making this clear as an instructor. Yes a "fighter" can be successful in self defense. But it has more to do with the person, than what they are being taught. There is much more to self defense than any ring fight or street fight. And a street fight is not self defense as a rule.

Top 3 Self Defenses Lies #2 - These techniques are guaranteed!

Yeah, no there is zero truth to this statement! I have seen this crap advertised for years. Things like "fear no man" or "defeat any attacker." Personally, to me this is a scam. You can never guarantee an outcome! 

Misconceptions about Gun Defense

Watch out for these kinds of claims. The ones I have looked into over the years where teaching nothing special. Because there is nothing special. Becoming proficient at self defense is a journey, not a techniques. And the only "test" is real life. But even victory in a self defense situation does not make one a expert, or makes what they do better. 

There are no absolutes, only survival!

Top 3 Self Defenses Lies #3 - Fear is not an Option

Fear is the ONLY option! If someone confronts you or attacks you then you will be afraid! Someone who say they are not is LYING. 

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

However you can train to deal with the adrenaline rush in a productive manner! This is also referred to as the fight or flight reflex.

The experience of fear is a personal one, unique to every individual person. However it can be overcome. I am going to offer you a video below discussing the "fear" issue.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Yes there are solutions to things like the Top 3 Self Defense Lies! but, you need to understand the solutions are not simple.

They require education, training and lot of it!  You cannot just enroll in any martial art and suddenly be bullet proof.

Whatever you are being taught needs enhancement! And this way of think will help you to increase your odds of survival! As an example the science of pressure point self defense is an enhancement to your martial art study!

It does NOT suddenly make you unbeatable! Improving your effectiveness striking helps immensely! But if you get stabbed while doing it? Well I am sure you see what I am talking about! 

Question? Have you ever been told any of these 3 lies? Or a difference one? Please tell me about it here.

Pressure Point GB-31 [Gall Bladder]

Pressure Point GB-31 [Gall Bladder]

Today I will continue on our weekly discussion of Pressure Points with one of the most underrated, Pressure Point GB-31 [Gall Bladder].

Even many people who have never studied the science of Pressure Point Self Defense called Kyusho Jitsu will have a relationship with the pressure point.

The Pressure Point GB-31

It is sometimes referred to as the Charley-Horse point on the leg. I know in high school we all love to knee someone here!

Pressure Point GB-31 [Gall Bladder] - Location

The Popliteal Artery

The Pressure Point GB-31 is located on the mid-line of the lateral aspect of the thigh, 7 cun above the transverse Popliteal Artery "crease." When a person is standing erect with hands by their sides, the pressure point is located where the tip of the middle finger touches the leg. 

Pressure Point GB-31 - the effect

When the pressure point is struck, usually with a blunt object like the knee the entire leg will go "dead." The pain is "off the charts" and the attacker will be unable to walk. A knockout is possible because a solid strike can break the femur and therefore cause serious injury including death do to potential internal bleeding. This is not probable however due to the curvature of the leg at this point. 

And using a small tool such as the heal or a big toe, placed dead on the pressure point can cause heart issues. The reason is the swelling inside the leg, cause circulation issues in the leg. However this is very unlikely.

Therefore it is not considered a dangerous pressure point, but a Painful Pressure Point

In Conclusion 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Now because of the almost guaranteed result when striking this pressure point it is a must for self defense training.

Therefore it is one you will want to learn and pay attention too! 

Do you train using this pressure point? Are there others you also really like? Leave me a comment and let me know!


Pressure Point GB-31 - Self Defense

Most of all it is BEST for a Level One escalation event when you feel the need to stop a potential assault dead in its tracks! Self Defense is not a technique but a mindset. Therefore it is always best to treat your self defense training as a separate entity from your root art. 

Personally I made this distinctions 20 years ago, and therefore made the adjustments then.

3 Martial Arts Secrets Revealed at Last

Shares

3 Martial Arts Secrets Revealed

Finally 3 Martial Arts Secrets revealed

Are there really "secrets" in the martial art? Yes! There most certainly are! Today I will explain the reasons why secrets have been kept, and what the TOP 3 Martial Arts Secrets are! 

Why are there Secrets?

The first thing needs to be asked is WHY? Why are there secrets in the martial arts. Today what is taught in the west is very far from what was once taught in the countries of the far east. 

Relationship between the "far east" and the west have not always been very good. Forget the 2 World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. There are HUGE cultural differences between the 2. AND there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT!

However this does change greatly how much the 2 sides will trust each other! And no matter what the political agenda of special interest groups and government are these difference will ALWAYS be there! Because it is a GOOD THING!

If you look at some history, even that of Bruce Lee, he was chastised for teaching the arts to blacks and whites. Today things tend to be different however much of the original teaching in the art were lost, or watered down in the name of the "sport" movement. 

So lets get into this shall we?

3 Martial Arts Secrets #1

Kyusho Pressure Point Activation

Yes you know what I am going to say here! Pressure Points! I have seen these taught so badly by so many non Kyusho martial arts masters it is almost funny! Then the "mystery" that has been linked to Kyusho Jitsu due to the poor communications about how it works.

Amazingly there are people, who do not tend to think for themselves, who believe that the science of pressure point self defense is fantasy. So, just with reference to these people can you see how there are secrets?

Kyusho Jitsu is part of every martial art. However to make it work, because the information was withheld for so long, needs to be reintroduced in a proper manner. This is the mandate I have at the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance.

3 Martial Arts Secrets #2

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

Your Kata! Now I have been in the arts for coming 35 years. I can recall so many times how Kata have been referred to as "pointless" and having nothing to do with "fighting."

And that is once more a case of those who know the least, tend to talk the most!

As I was coming up in my root art I asked many questions about our Hyung or Kata and NEVER got a straight answer! However there is a tremendous understanding lying inside of each movement.  Today because of the growth of Kyusho Jitsu worldwide these "meaning" are begin taught. However in my opinion there is an issue with this also!

The student needs to be TAUGHT to see what is going on for themselves. Not just told the meaning. I have been working on doing this for years! Here is some information on my Kata Teachings. 

And there are multiple potential interpretations for every movement! There is NO wasted movements in any martial art! When you unlock this door your study of your root art expands beyond you imagination!

3 Martial Arts Secrets #3

Sound and Kyusho Knockouts

KIA or Spirit Yell! Another part of martial arts training that is so misunderstood. There are many different explanation for this. And these are all partial answers to the question.

  • KAI focuses the Mind! This is true! But only a partial answer
  • Scares or startles the attacker. Yeah, I have my doubts here.
  • Increases Power

​​​Those answers are not wrong, even if I find the second one to be silly. However they are INCOMPLETE. And many students do the KAI dead wrong. It is not a YELL! It is a deliberate spoken action.

Why? Because sound has an affect on the humane body, and can weaken it! Don't believe me? Then do not ever tell your child to turn down their music! You do this because the music is taking you off your game, affecting your mind in a negative way! Making you angry. Which is an activation of Triple Warmer!

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

DO you know of any other secrets that have been kept from the main stream martial arts community?

I would love to hear about them! Comment here!

one of the reasons for the fast growth of the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is I do not keep secrets, and I do not show off how good I am! I TEACH! This is about you the student, not me!
