Self Defense Surviving the Threat

Self Defense Surviving the Threat

What do I mean by "self defense surviving the threat?" Today self defense in our world becomes more and more important each day, so we must learn to surviving the threat. Life is hard, it is hard for everyone regardless of country of birth. Saying anything else is just political. The stresses of life can wear you down. Then adding the very real potential for physical threat to this. It can all become overwhelming.  Therefore the martial art student must prepare.

Self Defense Surviving the Threat - Fight or Flight

One of 2 things will happen in an attack situation. You will FREEZE or you will fight back. The truth is most people FREEZE, even well trained martial artists. Why? Because they don’t train the mind properly for the potential attack.  When the adrenaline hits the blood stream everything changes.  This is not an ego battle street fight, this is life or death. The world changes forever when you see the “flash of the blade.”

Here is a link to learn more about Fight or Flight. It will open in a new tab so you can keep reading here.

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

Self Defense Surviving the Threat - Stress Training

Many years back you read a lot about in Dojo stress training for students.  This is was one of the greatest disservices we as teachers every did.  It is like taking a untrained soldier and dropping them into a war zone. But us old dogs in the martial arts believe in trial by fire. All we accomplished was to destroy the confidence of students and get them to quit.  It was and still is the WRONG approach. Students need to be prepared FIRST!

Self Defense Surviving the Threat - Train the Mind First

The students MIND must be trained properly. They must be prepared for being attacked from a physiological point of view, then you can begin to ramp up “stress training.” This idea of only the strong survive is egotistical bullshit on the part of the teacher, and my guess is he or she has never had a gun in their face.  Our job is to make the weak STRONG, so they survive the threat! The strong don’t need us!

When you accomplish that, you are a true teacher and leader!

Self Defense is a PASSION

Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Self Defense

For me self defense is a passion! It is the reason I became involved in the science of pressure point self defense. Kyusho Jitsu is a real game changer. But it all requires training. Nothing in life that is good comes without dedication!  I have released an eBook called the Psychology of Self Defense. This book is based on years of study as to what makes one person able to defense themselves and another NOT. You can checkout it from this link

Kyusho Destructive Sounds

Kyusho Destructive Sounds

Kyusho Destructive Sounds

Are you familiar with Kyusho Destructive Sounds? This is the 9th Principle in the 15 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu and one of the most interesting.  In my eBook on the 15 Principles Plus One of Kyusho Jitsu I did go into a lot of details about sound. However there are some things that are hard to explain via print, therefore difficult making it clear.

Kyusho Destructive SoundsHow Does Sound Work?

There are 6 basic destructive sounds in Kyusho Jitsu. Each sound attacks a specific element of the body, and therefore 2 different meridians.  There sounds themselves are really no secret.  Here is a listing for you below.

  • Ki (key) – Fire
  • Hee – Fire
  • Cee – Metal
  • Shu – Wood
  • Heer – Earth
  • Chu – Water

That is the basic breakdown, with the words more or less spelling phonetically.  But there is a lot more to using sound that just saying words and striking.

Yes you will get a result if you make the sound while striking a corresponding pressure point.

However as a result of missing intention, and understanding the “how and why” you won’t get the full reaction you seek.


Kyusho Destructive Sounds - Directional Sounds

There are also something in Kyusho called directional sounds. And below i am going to give you a short video with an example of the power of directional sound.

These are not as dangerous as the sounds above, therefore they are a great place to start your learning! 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Do you see the potential power in this principle? Let me know what your think HERE! 

Also below I have a very spacial free opportunity for you to get some real solid information on sound without cost or risk!


Do You want to Learn More?

Kyusho Destructive Sounds are one of my favorite principles. For me sound is very easy to use, but I do have a deep understand of what happens to the body. This has come from years of research using as many Uki as possible.

Have a look at the Kyusho Club Webinar from Saturday June 1st 2019 on Kyusho Sound and Colour! Then checkout the information below the video to learn even more!


Right now I have something special for you!  Back in 2010 I did a workshop for my Kyusho Class in Canada on both Sound and Colour. This was a very heavily anticipated events and fortunately is was captured on video!

Pressure Point Self Defense

Shares

Pressure Point Self Defense

So, what is Pressure Point Self Defense and why do you need to be studying and applying it to your martial arts system? Back in the old days of martial art training in the West the old master often referred to pressure points as nerve strikes.” This is an excellent term, but there is much more to it than this!

What exactly is a pressure point? This is a place on the body when an nerve terminates or comes to an end.

Where nerves cross in the body, or where a nerve nerve will branch out into a “Y” shape.

The actually pressure point itself is the size of a pin head, but the area of activation is the size of a Looney (Canadian Dollar pictured below)

pressure point activation size
Pressure Points on the Body

Now picture 361 of these pressure points covering the human body! Not all of them are useful, but a large number of them are extremely effective in self defense.

Now why do I refer to Kyusho Jitsu, the art and science of pressure point self defense as a science? The reason is we TEST reactions and responses on real people to find predictable results that can be replicated.  The things that we teach, when learned and practiced with intention, will yield a 90% plus result from attacker to attacker.

There are many who say that Kyusho Jitsu is not a science, so for those who think this, lets go back to the dictionary!

Pressure Point Self Defense - What is Science?

  1. NOUN
    1. the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment:

I don’t think much more needs to be said here! So exactly what are some examples of a predictable result? Let’s look at a few pressure points and see.

Lung 6:

 This point lies on the arm, on the radial bone side halfway between the elbow and the wrist.  When this point is struck, like in a wrist grab defense the following happens every time.  First the hand will open its grip on the wrist or article of clothing it is grabbing.

Next the head will come forward as the front knee bends. This takes the attacker off center, and often off balance allowing for a close quarters head strike.

LU-06 Painful Arm Pressure Points

Pressure Point Self Defense -  My Experience:

In 16 plus years of Kyusho study I have NEVER encountered a case that the above does not happen!

TW-11 Painful Arm Pressure Points

Triple Warmer 11:

This is the "funny bone" located behind the elbow. Activation of TW-11 will ALWAYS result in a release of the muscles controlling the elbow and therefore the ability to dislocate the elbow at the joint. 

Here are just 2 examples on the arms, showing the predictable results. To become effective using pressure points you will need to  understand how they must be attacked. What the correct angle and direction to use is, plus a solid martial art system to apply this information to.

Pressure Point Self Defense - Study

With Steve Stewart. George Dillman and Louise St Jacques

How hard is it to find GOOD information on Pressure Points?

There is a shortage in the world of QUALIFIED and knowledgeable people to teaching Kyusho Jitsu.

There are maybe 2 or 3 dozen and literally millions of people training in the arts. The internet is FULL of information, much of it WRONG, or incomplete.

That is why I created Kyusho Jitsu University and Kyusho Club!

OK so what about me? Am I qualified? That is a resounding YES! My direct teacher is 10th Dan Kyusho Jitsu Grand Master Steve Stewart. GM Steve is a student of, as well as certified by Grand Master George Dillman.

I am currently a 6th Dan Black Belt in Kyusho Jitsu with DKI (Dillman Karate International). I am also a 9th Dan in my root art of Hapkido. At some point in the future I will seek my 7th Dan Black Belt with DKI or KIA (Kyusho International Alliance). But more importantly I am a LEVEL Five Certified Instructor in the DKI/KIA system. This is the highest level attainable.  You can easily contact GM Stewart to check me out! Here is a link to more information about myself.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Back a little over a few years ago I created the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance and subsequently Kyusho Jitsu University to help promote, teach and certify instructors in our system.  

This is a NON political organization focused on education! You can take a look at the Alliance Website right here.
