Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

Pressure Point Self Defense

Self Defense is Under Attack

Do you know how Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels integrate together? From the things I see posted, and a lot of the video I see there seems to be some confusion on this topic. 

Today I see a lot of "Combat" websites, videos and posts. Many of these done by younger people, often times trying to make a name for themselves. Nothing wrong with that I suppose. However if you are experiencing the need for "combat" training and you are a citizen, not police or military, you are doing something VERY wrong!

The addition of the science of pressure point self defense into these systems would dramatically improve the success rate. But again if you are confronted by a knife on a regular basis, it is time to rethink your life.

Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

You can breakdown Threat Levels for the average person fairly accurately. And in my opinion the need for real, solid self defense solutions are needed more than ever!

But first let's define self defense. 

Pressure Point Self-Defense

The protection of one's person or property against some injury attempted by another. This is a legal definition and here is a link for more information for you.

Pressure Points Self Defense & Escalation Levels

For the sake of simplicity I am going to break down Threat Level into 3 parts. In my school I break it down further, but lets look at the things the average person will encounter.

1) Level One - This is the beginning stage. You have encounter a disruptive person or a situation in which a potential attacker is "interviewing" you. Under most circumstances there is always an interview. For those types of people who are into the conflict and combat types of situation this may not occur. Or occurred in the past. Then they are ambushed. That is not what happens to the average person.

This stage has distinct signs and it requires situational awareness. There are also certain skills needed to handle this stage. Good assertive verbal skills, knowledge of the area in which you are in and possible escape routes. But most of all, an understanding of how to preemptively use pressure points to discourage the attacker, subdue the attacker and possibly restrain the attacker till the police arrive.

Attacked Tonight on the Way Home

2) Level Two -. This is in reference to AFTER the attacker has taken the threat from talk to physical aggression. This includes all of the above, plus the ability to knock the attacker out, allowing for escape or intervention from authorities. 

3) Level Three - This is high level threats that include weapons like knife, guns and clubs. Also multiple attackers! 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

There are many very important aspects fo successful self defense. It is not just about techniques. Escalation is a very important part of any self defense training and you need a deep understanding of how it all works.

This is one reason I created the HPPT - Humane Pressure Point Tactics Certification Course. You can learn more here. And i have an eBook called Humane Kyusho Jitsu Beginners Guide you can checkout here

Does your personal self defense training include escalation work? Please tell me about it! I would love to hear. Comment here.

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

Let's talk today in depth about HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense. First I want to break up the term and clearly define it.

What is Kyusho Jitsu?

First and foremost, Kyusho Jitsu is NOT a martial art in of itself. It is the study of the pressure point system of the human body and how best to take advantage of the weaknesses of this system.

It exists in every martial art but the information is either not taught, or not taught properly. This will result in ineffective self defense techniques. Here is the link to an article with more details on Kyusho Jitsu and its definition. 


Referencing Kyusho Jitsu
Large Intestine 18

What are Pressure Points?

A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve ends, branches off in a "Y" shape or crosses over another nerve. There are 361 plus pressure points on the human body.

The actual size of a pressure point is that of the head of a pin. However the area of activation is the size of a Silver Dollar or Looney in Canada. Here is an article to Pressure Point Basics to help detail this information more for you. 


What is HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

Here is a definition that many martial artists seem to have a problem with. So now lets look at the role of HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense and a real definition. 

You will see a lot of negative comments from tough guys about the effectiveness of martial arts in general in a self defense situation.

Why is this? Because for some reason these men believe that combat and a combative lifestyle are somehow linked to their manhood. 

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

When you have been in "more fights that you can remember" you are doing something serious wrong. This is NOT self defense. You have chosen to live a self destructive combat oriented lifestyle that will ultimately lead to your death. This can also be linked to several serious mental disorders.

But they are correct, martial arts will not work for them, and perhaps rather then die by the sword, they should seek some help. Unless you are police or military you should not be doing this! 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense is about protecting yourself and your family from ATTACK by someone who wishes to do you harm. It is not an engagement in a bar, but it can happen there. And it is NEVER about you bragging about your skills and getting in a fight. 

Self Defense is the use of reasonable force to end a conflict, and then turn the issue over to those who are mentally and physically prepared to deal with things, LAW ENFORCEMENT.

Defend yourself with the idea of getting out of dodge. It is NOT about ULTIMATE victory! Showing your amazing skills and doing untold damage to someone, then dealing with the legal repercussions of doing so. And of course retribution. That is childish high-school thinking!  I know 3 men from my High School now gone because they were this stupid and believed they were tough guys. 

So have you ever let your ego get you into a bad situation? Please leave a comment and tell us.


HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

So what is it I am teaching when I refer to HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense? Obviously I am teaching the correct way in which to attack a pressure point on the body to get the best possible result. Therefore ending the THREAT

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

However at Kyusho Jitsu University we are doing more than this. We have course coming that assume no martial arts training and teach specific techniques to help deal with threats. 

But also these courses will...

  1. Teach you to identify a potential threat before it escalates.
  2. Use verbal skills to defuse the situation before the first punch is thrown.
  3. Situational awareness, understanding and using the environment to help keep you safe.
  4. And a lot more!

This is what self defense is! The best self defense is never using it! As the quote goes "chance favors the prepared mind."


HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense - Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

This leads me to our new course at Kyusho Jitsu University called Humane Pressure Point Tactics. To my mind this is one of the most important course we have ever produced.  It is for the martial artist and non martial artist who wished to develop skills to deal with the chaos of today's increasing violent word.

For the martial artist this is very important.  As this is a certification course and I encourage the graduates to go out in the real world and teach the content of these 3 courses. 

I encourage those not in the martial arts to learn and develop these skills to help assure your safety in this crazy violent world!

And to show you just how awesome these 3 courses are I am going to give you an incredible gift. Fill out the form below and you can download Humane Pressure Point Tactics Level One Lesson 1 FREE!

How to Teach a Kyusho Jitsu Class

Shares

Teach a Kyusho Jitsu Class

Teach a Kyusho Jitsu Class

When it comes to teaching a Kyusho Jitsu Class live in a Dojo there are systems you really should use for optimum success. In other words a structure. Often times teachers get exciting and try to cram too much information into their Kyusho Jitsu Class. Therefore overwhelming students, and eventually losing them.

Go SLOW

Teachers often wish to impart far too much information too soon on their students. They worry that if this is not done the student will grow bored. This is the furthest thing from the truth! Take your time, and make sure the student really understands the materials

The First Lesson of a Kyusho Jitsu Class

Kyusho Jitsu Class

In the first lesson you will spend a lot of time explaining how your program works.Then begin to feed them some of the course materials. I suggest a 2.5 hour class. You can go shorter, but do not go longer!

I had an instructor years ago who loved to teach, and he would get very exciting about what he was doing. The class would go overtime, and then attendance began to suffer. People, students have other things on their plates. Always remember that!

You never want someone looking at their watch! You want them to be surprised how fast the time went! 

Kyusho Jitsu Class Session Breakdown

Here is an example of a Kyusho Jitsu class breakdown:

  1. Go ever entire program outline
  2. Resuscitation Techniques for Head, Lung and Heart
  3. Cycle of Destruction (Ko Cycle)
  4. Meridians of the Upper Extremities
  5. Arms points H6 and LU8

If you take your time, teach slowly and work directly with each student, this will take about 3 hours. 

Kyusho Jitsu Class Example

Below I am giving you a sample video from one of my Kyusho Jitsu University Gold Members Live Seminars. This is edited to remove seeing the students involved. This is essentially the replay for those who missed it. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

There is a very important path to teaching a Kyusho Jitsu Class. And when you follow this path you will find an increase in not just learning, but also retention of the student.

 It is very easy to overwhelm someone new to the science of pressure point self defense. 

Are you a Kyusho Teacher? I would love to hear about your experiences teach class and the results! Feel free to comment here.

And you also need some reference material to help you teaching classes like these! Here are 2 that you will find totally invaluable for you! The 1st is my eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy, the Gray's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu. The 2nd is the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu. Visit the links and have a look!

Pressure Point Self Defense Techniques

Shares

Pressure Point Self Defense Techniques

*

When it comes to Pressure Point Self Defense Techniques you can get a very solid result. That is providing you understand how things work. Often time I will see martial art teachers made big mistakes when it come to teaching self defense techniques, and adding pressure points to it.

Recently I watched part of a seminar for local law enforcement in which pressure points were badly misused. The 1st issue I had with what was being taught was the defender stepping forward into the punch. BAD IDEA. There is a time to step in and this was not the time. 

Next a "neck pressure point" was grabbed, however the teacher did not know the name of the point, nor was it attacked correctly. The pressure point in question was SI-16 [small intestine 16]. This is best a strike point. Yes the technique hurt! But under adrenaline this would not have been anywhere near as painful, because it is the wrong way to attack the point. 

Small Intestine Meridian

Second and most important! The attacker has 2 hands and you are now within grabbing range, and no options to get out!  Perhaps this man could "pull this off" himself, as he has about 45 years experience, but my issue is it is begin taught as "correct." And there was nothing correct about it!

There are many things I can do, but I would not teach these of techniques as some kind of "fact" of self defense.

Pressure Point Self Defense Techniques - Proper Pressure Point Usage

When adding Pressure Point Self Defense Techniques you gotta do it right! As an example let's say you are teaching a center lock. If the student knows the center lock, and you wish to add Kyusho Jitsu knowledge to it. Then it takes time to change the understanding. If they have never seen the lock before, it becomes easier obviously.

Next you need to make sure you understand the pressure points "universal effectiveness." What percentage of people does this pressure point work on?  With SI-16 it is in the very high 90% range. 

Here is an example of adding pressure points to a "lock." This is a "Z" lock in this case.

There are also variations of this. But you will get the result! However, the technique itself must be fully understood and internalized. Then you can make it work. You also MUST understand the escalation level for such a technique!

Pressure Point Self Defense Techniques - Self Defense done RIGHT

There is a lot of information out in the wild on self defense. But in my view a lot of it falls short of getting the job done! And a lot of it will just get you killed! There are things you need to understand, and then ways in which you must proceed!

What you must know!

  1. You must know what the THREAT level is for the incident at hand. This cannot be an "I can handle it" moment in your life. This can get you killed!
  2. How to position yourself to cut the threat! The high percent of attacks begin with an "interview." You need to see this happening and respond to it! 
  3. How to preemptively handle the situation before it becomes life and death. Making 100% sure you are safe while doing this!

How to Start!

There are stages to all this. What I am referring to above is stage 1!

The situation could turn bad, but it has not yet done so! Today this is the most common stage. This stage is so prevalent today because of the current political climate and all the special interest groups of people thinking they have been "hard done to."  

They are angry and looking for someone to take it out on! So be cautious!

Pressure Point Self Defense Techniques

It used to be more commonly an interview for a robbery or some such event. 

Here are the 3 Stages

  1. Confrontation not yet become violent
  2. Dealing with the confrontation that has become violent
  3. A weapon is produced during the confrontation. Or there are multiple attackers.

You need a handle of all 3 Stages!

In Conclusion - What are the Solutions?

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Yes there is a solution! No matter what your level of self defense training, or how good your pressure point self defense techniques are this will help you! 

I have a  3 Level Certification Course available at Kyusho Jitsu University. This is called Humane Pressure Point Tactics. This is a 3 level certification course for both student and teacher. And is vital information on dealing with our current levels of street violence and confrontation.

 I will leave a link to another article below for you to look at also on a new program at Kyusho Club called HPPT Self Defense Solutions. And if you have any questions please feel free to comment here!

Kyusho Jitsu Does it Work?

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Does it Work?

Kyusho Jitsu Does it Work?

Today I am going to address a common question, Kyusho Jitsu Does it Work? This is a very common question. It actually came up for me on a Google Search, so lets answer this one!

But first I need to ask you, the reader a few questions!

1) Do you run a Dojo? Are you successful?
2) Are you a MMA champion?
3) Have you a professional fight?

What did you answer to those 3 questions? If yes to any, good for you! If no to any, then why not? 

The fact is that the answer to each of those questions is based on you! If want to do it, if it is a goal in your life. If you have drive and ambition, you can do any or all of those things listed! Kyusho Jitsu does it work?

The answer is really up to you!

Kyusho Jitsu Does it Work? - Failures in Life

People who are FAILURES in life can find an excuse why ANYTHING does not work. AND IT IS ALL EXCUSES! 

I played hockey most of my life. But I never made the NHL. Why? Because if was not a passion for me to do so! Now if it had been things could certainly have gone wrong. Injuries can end a career quickly!

Kyusho Jitsu Does it Work

Same with self defense. Like getting attacked, trying to defend yourself and you get stabbed! The reason you got stabbed was not a shortfall of your martial art system.

It was YOUR shortfall! Errors you made. The situation perhaps, but not the martial art itself.

Kyusho Jitsu does it work?

Yes it DOES, 100%  if YOU do the work! But it takes time, dedication and hard training. Like anything in life, success or failure falls into the hand of the individual. I have had many failures in my life, and they are ALL my fault and not something outside of me. 

So what does it take to make Kyusho Jitsu work in real life? Study,dedication and training! Yes it really is that simple! Here is another article I wrote on the subject a while back.  You can learn and accomplish anything in life you wish, when you stop listening to those who wish to pull you down. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

I have seen so many times someone commenting "Pressure Points don't work" and then in the next breath talk about the great KO they saw in the recent MMA event. 

The funny thing is that KO was the result of stimulation of the nervous system! All knockouts are neurological events! Don't let your ego get in the way of becoming more effective!

If you have a question feel free to ask here.

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

What is H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics"Is this something I need?" This is a question I have been getting asked all week, so lets take a good look at exactly what this is all about. 

Let's do an FAQ on Humane Pressure Point Tactics!

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Question # 1

Who is this series of courses for? 

Answer: This is for any martial arts student or instructor who is concerned about the effectiveness of the self defense aspects of their martial art system. The escalation of violence across the globe is reason for this concern. Today violence erupts over NOTHING.

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics 

Question # 2

Is this only for Kyusho Jitsu Students?

Answer: No, this course includes real working techniques that anyone can learn and apply to self defense. This is not a "Kyusho Jitsu" class. We will not be talking about "Kyusho Principles" or other related topics. This is a different ballgame. We will use pressure points, however the focus is different. 

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Question # 3

Can I teach after I certify?

Answer: Yes! I encourage you to do this! The contents of this course can be integrated into you current martial arts system. Or you can teach special interest groups like social workers, police or anyone else you think could benefit from the information!

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Question # 4

What does the first course cover?

Answer: The Level One Course covers situations which have not "yet" escalated to violence. However there is a good possibility that they will! Therefore preemptive action is required! As an example if you strike someone preemptively you can end up on assault charges. Why? Because technically you started it! Legally also. This will keep you on the right side of the law, but allowing you to handle the threat effectively.

The idea behind Humane Pressure Point Tactics is to take control, without excessive force and end the threat. This could be by removing the person from the area as an example.

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Question # 5

Can you show examples of the kind of things you will teach?

Answer: Yes I can. Below is a video from 2012 of an Humane Pressure Point Tactics certification I did in my school in Canada.  Now remember this is excerpts, so you see examples, but there is a lot of information missing in this video that will NOT be missing in the course!

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

I hope this FAQ on HPPT Humane Pressure Point Tactics helps you out!

One question I do gets asked is from people with not enough time for an online course. Here is a possible solution for you!

Is there something about these courses I have not addressed you would like to know about? Please ask me here!

5 Reasons to Study Kyusho Jitsu

5 Reasons to Study Kyusho Jitsu

5 Reasons to Study Kyusho Jitsu

Why study Kyusho Jitsu? What are the advantages to the study of the science of pressure point self defense? The truth is there are MANY reasons to do so. But today I am going to give you a list of 5 of the top reasons!

5 Reasons to Study Kyusho

These are 5 reasons to study Kyusho, but  I can think of dozens. But lets start simple shall we?

  1. It makes your techniques more effective! How does it do this? When you study Kyusho Jitsu you begin to look at how the body works, and therefore the best ways to affect the body. The neurological systems controls how everything works. Therefore attacking nerves is a MUST!
  2. Size stops mattering! When I was young and Bruce Lee was still alive people spoke about in martial arts size does not matter. In today's martial arts competition oriented world size matters a LOT! That is because this knowledge of pressure points has been lost.
  3. Ageless. When you study Kyusho Jitsu it also helps to compensate for aging! This one I know very well! Age and injury eventually take advantage of us all! Even Chuck Norris
  4. Expands your understanding of your root art. Kyusho Jitsu will also help to expand your understanding of the root art you study! There is no wasted movement in any martial art system. But if can seem like there is. That is because knowledge gets lost over time. Therefore to study Kyusho Jitsu helps to bring this back!
  5. Understanding Kata. There is magic locked inside your Kata! But on the surface it is often overlooked. The study of Kyusho Jitsu will help you to unlock the secrets in your Kata? Why is this important? It is because when you see these things, your brain then accepts and internalizes the movement. Therefore making them, or versions of them accessible during a stressful self defense situation. Here are some other benefits of Kata training as well. 
Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Honestly these 5 reasons to study Kyusho Jitsu are JUST the BEGINNING. These are martial art related benefits to the study.

And this is where most people start! But there are many, many more reason's

I wrote an article called Kyusho Jitsu Training benefits a while back that goes into the other reason for the study of Kyusho Jitsu.

Discover the 3 Most Painful Pressure Points

​3 Most Painful Pressure Points

3 Most Painful Pressure Points

What are the 3 Most Painful Pressure Points on the human body? There are many different pressure points that when stimulated correctly can cause vast amounts of pain! Learning and understanding these points is an important part of the science of pressure point self defense. So let's take a look at 3 or my favorite "pain points."  When understood correctly PAIN is a great deterrent in a low to medium self defense situation. 

There are certainly many, many more and you can download a report with more below! But this will get you started!

Painful Pressure Points - Triple Warmer 17

Painful Pressure Points - Triple Warmer Meridian

The first of the 3 Most Painful Pressure Points on the body is TW-17. This is a great point which I am personally very fond of!!

It causes intense pain on about 90 percent of the people I have worked with. Those are pretty good odds too! Located behind the ear posterior to the lobule of the ear, in the depression between the mandible and mastoid process

One of the most painful and potentially deadly pressure points. Easy to press in and seal with the finger, but difficult to strike. However, once a solid strike is made the result is devastating. As a control pressure point it is very effective!

Once hit there is a potential for a separation between the spinal column and skull resulting in permanent paralysis and possible death. A jaw dislocation is also possible using proper angle and direction. Striking this point can cause a knockout however this not recommended in Dojo training due to the serious potential consequences. 

Below is a video of using TW-17 along with the "Mental" nerve.

Painful Pressure Points - Governing Vessel 26

Pressure Points of the head

This is another massively most painful pressure points on the human body, which is rub pressure point primarily. However you can use as an example and hammer-fist on it and hit in and down. 

GV-26 is located on the inside of the upper lip, at the junction of the frenulum and the upper gum. It is attacked by pressing in and down on the upper lip, with a 2-Way Action. A vibrating side to side motion works best! Small motion while pressing in HARD.

This is a great point to use if someone gets on top of you. They will not stay there long if you attack this point! It can also be struck down which can cause a knockout.

Here is an article if you wish to read more about GV-26.

Painful Pressure Points - Large Intestine 18

Large Intestine 18

LI-18 is a wonderful strike point. When hit correctly with 2 Way Action, and straight across to the other side will cause crippling pain. If the strike is of sufficient force a knockout can also occur.

A solid strike to Pressure Point Large Intestine 18 on one side will cause the person to drop down to their knees in pain. The pain is very slow to dissipate, which allows time for escape in a self defense situation.  

A simple inward knife hand or "ridge" hand will accomplish this very well

Holding / supporting the neck on the opposite side with your other hand will also intensify the effect. LI-18 can also cause respiratory issues in anyone who has any kind of chronic breathing issues! You can read more about LI-18 HERE.

Below is another video example using LI-18

Dedicated Kyusho Student

Are you a dedicated Kyusho Student? In today's very busy very distracted world being dedicated to any kind of study requires vigilance and some special skills. We are distracted by literally several thousands things per day, all trying to get our attention. Therefore we must develop some special "life skills" be become successful!

Dedicated Kyusho Student Skill #1

Desire: 

To be a Dedicated Kyusho Student you need to have a burning desire to learn. If you think it might be something good to get into, you simply will not do the work. This is true of anything in life too!

Dedicated Kyusho Student Skill #2

Focus: 

In order to be a Dedicated Kyusho Student you need to be able to put other things aside and focus. Turn off the cellphone, close down Facebook and do the work. Over the last 10 years I have seen students bring cellphones to class! Unless you are waiting for an emergency call like a sick family member or wife having a child. Put the phone away.

Dedicated Kyusho Student Skill #3

Schedule. 

You need to set aside time for your study that is not going to be changed because something comes up. Be realistic too! Don't set aside 2 hours per day and then miss it! It is better to take 20 minutes 3 times per week and dedicate to it! This will give you a result. Commit to a reasonable schedule and keep it! You can always expand it later!

Dedicated Kyusho Student Skill #4

Goals. 

A Dedicated Kyusho Student learns to set a goal based on the above and work to reach it! We are goal oriented creatures and this gives what we do purpose!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

When you put these things in order then you are headed towards success in the science of pressure point self defense and anything else in life!

These are not just skills related to the science of pressure point self defense but life success as well!

Why I Love Kyusho Jitsu!

​Love Kyusho Jitsu

Why do I Love Kyusho Jitsu?  In a nutshell, because the learning just never stops! When I first began the Kyusho Jitsu journey back in the early 2000's I did not expect just how involved I would become in the study. And after about 16 years I am still learning new things!

I love Kyusho Jitsu - The Novice Study

Novice study was for me a big challenge. I had been out of school forever, and as a teenager I hated memory work! But I really did want to learn this so very badly. The things I saw Kyusho masters do was to me astounding. Plus in my first introduction to Kyusho I learned things that I could take home and apply to my root art of Hapkido immediately. The science of pressure point self defense was for me a "calling." I Love Kyusho Jitsu!

The Novice Kyusho Principles were pretty straight forward, things like Attack Using the Cycle of Destruction made sense right away because I could make it work. It was very exciting to do! Other things like the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle were more challenging because like I said I hated memory work! Plus at first I only had a superficial understanding, so I resisted it some. Today is different, I know it is one of the most important parts of the study!

That first year of Kyusho Jitsu, working my way towards my Black Belt was exciting. It cost me a lot of time and money too. I estimate I spent about $1500 with classes, travel and grading fees. But it was worth it! After the first year was finished I signed into the advanced program and my oldest son Curt joined the novice course.

I love Kyusho Jitsu - My Passion Grew

Over the years my passion grew and grew. Looking for ways to integrate it all into my root art. I decided I wanted to become an instructor and pursued certification in the system. I began to teach study groups and do seminars.  Today the passion continues to grow.

The Vegas Nerve

FYI - Benefits of Study

Today we face many different factors in our environment that affect our health negatively. As an example Alzheimer's Disease is on the rise globally. One of the causes of this is "aluminum." Today due to Geoengineering, which is FACT not FICTION and admitted by world governments is a major cause. Aluminum is used to help "fighting" the effects of environment change. 

Which is usual as no government has ever done anything right! However the good news is that "intellectual study" like Kyusho Jitsu can help with early onset of this terrible disease! Therefore not only is the study of the science of pressure point self defense important in self defense. It can also contribute to your brain health!

Below is information on how you can start to learn Kyusho FREE!


In Conclusion

Perhaps you are like me? Success in Kyusho Jitsu is like anything else it takes time, money and dedication. Plus getting good Kyusho information is a challenge. There is lots out there, but it lacks organization and support for optimum learning.

My mandate at the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is to tear down as many barriers to entry and success as possible. Check out the links below and see if the science of pressure point self defense is for you!
