5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #1

Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets

Two Way Action - Fulcrum / Lever Activation

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

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

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

Here is a video that explains Two Way Action

5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #2

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

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

5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #3

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

Here is another short video with some information on 

Body Mechanics.

5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #4

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

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

5 Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets #5

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

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

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

In Conclusion

5 Kyusho Kyusho Jitsu Success Secrets  CONCLUSION

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

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

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points


Kyusho Setup Pressure Points

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points

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

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

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

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points - TW-03

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

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

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

Pretty cool eh?

Free Setup Pressure Points Course

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

If you click the button below a popup will appear. Enter your name and email address, and then confirm your email address by clicking the link sent to your inbox. Then I can send you the videos for download right away!

Kyusho Setup Pressure Points  CONCLUSION

Lie! Easily Defeat Any Attacker


Easily Defeat Any Attacker

Defeat any attacker

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

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

Easily Defeat Any Attacker. The statement is FALSE

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

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

Apathy Self Defense Today

Easily Defeat Any Attacker - The FACTS

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

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

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

There is no easy fix!

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

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

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

Adding Kyusho Jitsu

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

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

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

In Conclusion

Easily Defeat Any Attacker Conclusion

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

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

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

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

Kyusho Teaching too Static


Kyusho Teaching too Static 

Kyusho Teaching too Static

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

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

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

Kyusho Teaching too Static - Reason One

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

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

Kyusho Teaching too Static - Reason Two

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

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

Kyusho Jitsu Learning Curve

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

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

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

* Kyusho Teaching too Static

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

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

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

In Conclusion

Kyusho Teaching too Static Conclusion

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

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

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

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

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

Gun Defense Laws


Gun Defense Laws 

Gun Defense Laws

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

So on with real FACTS about Gun Defense Laws.

Gun Defense Laws - Facts

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

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

Gun Defense Laws

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

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


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

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

Top 3 Self Defense Lies


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

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

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

10-Lies about Gun Control Debate

Lie #1: 

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

Lie #2:

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

Lie #3: 

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

Lie #4: 

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

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

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

Lie #5: 

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

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

Lie #6: 

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

* Right to Self Defense

Lie #7: 

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

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

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

Lie #8: 

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

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

Lie #9: 

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

Lie #10: 

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

Best DEFENSE against Guns

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

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

About Gun Crime

Are you prepared to counter an attack?

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

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

Be Prepared!

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

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

Gun Defense Laws - Survival

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

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

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

Self Defense Canada

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

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

Gun Defense Laws

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

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

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

Gun Defense Laws in Canada

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

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

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

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

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

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

Criminal Code of Canada

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(a) the nature of the force or threat;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Best Defenses to know about Guns

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

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

It takes time and skill to handle a shotgun..

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

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


Misconceptions about Gun Defense

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding guns

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

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

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

Misconceptions about Gun Defense

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

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

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

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

You can successfully fight an armed attacker

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

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

Gun Defense Laws CONCLUSION

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

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

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

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

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

Dim Mak’s Vibrating Palm


Dim Mak's Vibrating Palm

* Dim Mak's Vibrating Palm

What exactly is Dim Mak's Vibrating Palm? There is a lot of legend to it, but again for the moment this does not concern me. Is it real? Very definitely it is real. Vibration is also very, very hard on the body. [Striking Action in Kyusho Jitsu] And this is the reason for the effectiveness of the Vibrating Palm.

Power vs Vibration

In the martial arts most people are focused on power.  Being I am not a very big person, especially by today’s standard, I never was focused on power. I found I got a much better effect with a “snapping” action.  Then once I discovered Kyusho Jitsu and the various striking actions, the world changed for me.

When you punch someone HARD you will damage the skin area and muscle which will cause bruising. The results are seen pretty quickly with a black to purple colour coming to the surface of the skin.

However using a “snapping” action, which is a vibrating action has a very different effect. The skin may appear to become red, like it has been slapped. But the damage is far deeper in the body, and will slowly appear to the eyes. Sometime it does not show at all.  The only indicator is pain.

Dim Mak's Vibrating Palm

When I began the Dim Mak Project the Vibrating Palm was on my list of wishing to address. I am going to give you an older video below in which I am discussing this idea. 

The idea behind Dim Mak's Vibrating Palm is not simply to cause the palm to vibrate. Which is a methods in which we use to attack metal in Kyusho Jitsu, [Learn the difference between Kyusho Jitsu & Dim Mak here.] but instead to train the body to pool, oscillate and release the Chi or internal energy upon the strike landing. 

The energy expulsion pressure point for this Chi is HT-08 on the palm. From what I have concluded from my research on the subject is not that the Dim Mak Masters can expel a lot of Chi from this point on demand, but also and more importantly control the frequency of this energy release.

High frequency energy does more and different damage than low frequency energy. All you need to do to see proof of this is the DEADLY 5g Cellphone services being pushed today. The human body can do this too!

If you do not believe that consider the times you argue with a friend or family member? This can take you off your game for any time from hours to years. This is because of the transfers of energy between the 2 combatants. 

Learn Vibrating Palm?

Are you interested in learning more about Dim Mak's Vibrating Palm? We have 2 different Courses you may want to take a look at from Kyusho Jitsu University. Check our the 2 links below for more information. 

In Conclusion

Dim Mak's Vibrating Palm  CONCLUSION

Dim Mak is a fascinating art. And Dim Mak's Vibrating Palm is so very powerful!

The Dim Mak Project began in 2017 and still continues today. I have done several courses now, a few videos and a book.

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification


Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification

Martial Arts styles and systems survive because of students deciding to be become teachers keeping their art alive. Back in early 2016 I created the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance with just that purpose in mind. And so the Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification courses were developed and released to those who were interested.

And the response was excellent! Over the last 3 years I have certified many people to teach the art and science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu under the banner of the KJWA. But now it is time make the changes I spoke of from the beginning, and get this program into real forward action!

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification - Current Instructors

On July 15th 2019 the way in which I am certifying instructors will be changing.

These changes will not apply to those who have already either certified or have purchased one of more of the instructor certification courses and are in the process of their learning / grading.

In other words these current instructors and students are grandfathered into the new system.  

Kyusho Instructor Courses in Spain

Changes July 15th 2019

Anyone who purchases a Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course on or after July 15th 2019 will be required to pay a yearly licensing fee, as well as be required to submit a video examination to assure they are keeping up with their person learning. And that instructor certification credentials are issued because the martial artist wishes to spread the teaching of Kyusho Jitsu, and not just add to their list of credentials of their martial arts career. 

The real truth of the matter is that people do not tend to move unless they have "skin in the game" and many people only do the course for a "feather in the cap." Doing that for your personal Black Belt is OK. But instructors need to actively TEACH. 

And for the last 3 years I have been offering discounted prices on the 6 different levels of certification. Each level, beginning at Level One, which is where everyone starts is for teaching to a certain rank. 

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification

These courses will all be going to regular prices and further discounts will not be offered above the list price on the website.

 These changes also apply to those who take the Instructor Certification Courses are Kyusho Jitsu University too. 

Licensing Schedule

After July 15th 2019 when a potential instructor purchases their downloadable course or enrolls at KJU the journey begins. Included in the initial purchase is their 1st year of licensing. After 1 year there will be an annual licensing fee of $100 as well as the video update requirements mentioned above. 

This will assure the quality of our teaches as they represent the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance and not just themselves. And the highest standard of teaching must be maintained! All of this will be laid out at our Instructor Certification Page soon!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

This may cause you to have questions on how this program will work. And all of this will be make clear and available soon.

Those who purchase their Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course(s) before July 15th will not be subject to the changes and fees listed above. 

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment here! Otherwise if you would like to learn more about the Level One Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification follow this LINK NOW. This is the BEST time to get started!

Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System


Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

* Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

I spend a lot of time on this blog going into great details on how Kyusho Jitsu and the Pressure Point systems of the human body work. And also why they work. The idea to to overcome the bad press and all the propaganda. So today we are going deep into what I am calling the Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System. In reality we are discussing the human nervous system. This is an extension of an article wrote a while back called Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes

Human Nervous System

The human nervous system is truly a wonder. This system is why we are who and what we are. It controls everything that is YOU from one central location, your brain.

Now I have seen a lot of evidence over the years that there is much more too us beyond the brain. However for the discussion today on the "Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System" I will leave that for another time. 

Science estimates many things about the "Central Nervous System" of people, and it is really just an estimation. The reason I say this is because they cannot lay it all out end to end and measure. Therefore math is use to draw their conclusions. 

They estimate that end to end there is over 90,000 miles of nerves running through one human body. And there the receptors and neurons number at least 100 billion.  

It is a delicate balance of many things, like water and various minerals, plus a PH balance to keep everything running smooth. We exist in a bio-electrical-mechanical suit.  

And this is such an over simplified explanation it is almost shameful.

* Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

So what then is the Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System? This is the part of the massive system discussed above that is of interest to us in the science of pressure point self defense. And what that is basically comes down to is the definition of a pressure point. 

What is a pressure point? This is a place on the body where a nerve ends, where one nerve crosses over top of another like in a "X" pattern. Or where a nerve splits and branches off like a "Y"

Pressure Points themselves are very small. The size of the head of a pin. However the areas of activation is much larger. The area of activation means the "striking" or "manipulating " area we need and use  in Kyusho Jitsu. 

Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

There are 361 PLUS pressure points on the human body, all with their own characteristics and affects.

You can learn more about this from my book called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.

There are certain ways in which you attack a pressure point, and all of them vary. They respond to either being "pressed, rubbed or struck." 

And this is accomplished with something we call 2 Way Action. Yes at first this all seems overwhelming, however once you get a solid foundational understanding it does get easier.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Once you begin to get an understand of the basics, all falls into place.

The human body is a very complex entity and therefore very susceptible to outside forces.  We have an illusion of autonomy, however we are effected by much in our environment. 

A great example of this is 5g cellphone technology.

This is a very dangerous, untested technology they are implement globally. Here is a link to a video on the subject. Now what is humorous about all of this is there are people who will still insist that pressure points do not work.

I even had someone challenge me on the definition of a pressure point once. He said to me "there are pressure points where there are no nerves." When I asked him to name one he vanished. 

These are the idiots of the world, those with unfounded, un-researched opinions. But that is just life! Hopefully I covered this information with enough details to paint a clear picture for you!

HPPT Rape Prevention Course


HPPT Rape Prevention Course

HPPT Rape Prevention Course

I find it alarming that I actually need to come to my readers and student with this idea. Should I create a 4th Level in the Humane Pressure Point Tactics Course that would be called HPPT Rape Prevention Course?

Today I have become rather concerned over the idea that this has become a political subject, and because it has,  a lot of the ideas, teaching and information being discussed, is not only ridiculous, but also reckless and dangerous for women and men alike.

Why do I say this? Have you ever known anything a government or politically motivated group of people to do that was NOT self serving and an EPIC failure?  This current group of 3rd wave feminist are not interested in what is best for they group they claim to represent, but instead are simply looking to satisfy their addiction to power.  Therefore I believe this subject needs to be addressed properly!

A Short Video - Please watch.

HPPT Rape Prevention Course - Content

The HPPT Humane Pressure Point Tactics Courses have been very successful.  This is a 3 Level Instructor Certification Course designed with the hopes that the students will go out in the real world and teach what they have learned, with the support of the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance to the average person. 

And if you are not familiar with these courses do not let the term "humane" fool you. These courses are about real street self defense within the letter of the law so that the victims of violent crimes do not need to suffer more in the aftermath!

My question today. Do you see a need for such a course? Are you the type of person who would be interested in learning this and teaching it locally in your community? Do you have suggestions for content to be covered?

Do you believe their is a need to reeducate the general public on this topic?

In Conclusion

HPPT Rape Prevention Course CONCLUSION

The information and ideology begin pushed in colleges, universities and media on the subject I believe is very problematic.

As I stated in the video my reasons and thoughts. Therefore I believe it is time for the subject to be properly addressed.

What do you think? Leave me a comment below and let me know. What are your responses to those questions above? 

In conclusion I would very much value your input on this topic!

Deadly Pressure Point TW-17 [Triple Warmer]


Deadly Pressure Point TW-17

Deadly Pressure Point TW-17

This one has been long awaited! So today I am going to talk about Deadly Pressure Point TW-17 [Triple Warmer/Triple Heater]. One of the most dangerous pressure points on the body, therefore TW-17 is not to be taken likely! So let's get into it!

Deadly Pressure Point TW-17 - Location

Pressure Point TW-17 is located behind the ear posterior to the lobule of the ear, in the depression between the mandible and mastoid process.

The correct angle and direction does vary. However for control press in and forward across to the other side with 2 Way Action.

* Deadly Pressure Point TW-17

Deadly Pressure Point TW-17 - Applications

One of the most painful and potentially deadly pressure points. This pressure point is easy to access by press in with a finger [pericardium finger the most effective] and seal with the other hand, but difficult to strike effectively. But not impossible with proper training.

Below is a video with a short demonstration.

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 very possible using proper angle and direction. The later is the most common result.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

While difficult to strike, but not impossible TW-17 is an excellent control pressure point. 

This property makes Deadly Pressure Point TW-17 an excellent one to use in low escalation self defense situations, giving your the ability to escalate the response quickly if required. 

What do you think of this pressure point? Have you used it yourself? Please feel free to ask any questions you have right here.
