Kyusho Special Alarm Points

Kyusho Special Alarm Points

What are Kyusho Special Alarm Points? Today I am going to get into this rather advanced subject. And it is also a subject often ignored by most Kyusho Jitsu students and instructors alike. However this is one of the most powerful "understandings" in the science of pressure point self defense. 

But first lets lay some ground work.

Kyusho Special Alarm Points - Types of Alarm Points

There are 3 different types of Alarm Points on the body. These are as follows 

1) Kyusho Standard or Front Alarm Points - These Alarm Points are located on the front of the body, with one more or less at the side [GB-25].

There is an Alarm Point for each organ on the body. These pressure points have a special and direct relationship with the organ they represent/govern. 

Kyusho Special Alarm Points

Attacking an Alarm Point can in theory affect the "health" of the organ. Especially if there are health issues for the person in question.

Kyusho Special Alarm Points

2) Kyusho Associated Alarm Points - These are located on the back of the body, along the Bladder meridian on the right side ONLY. These points are far more dangerous, and also harder to reach. 

Kyusho Associated Alarm Points have a direct relationship to the neurological aspect of the organ in question.  A proper strike can shut down the nervous system to the organ and cause failure.  These pressure points while on the Bladder Meridian are marked by their location on the spinal column. 


3) Kyusho Special Alarm Points - These are pressure points on the body that have an underlying function that is not always apparent to the practitioner. These Kyusho Jitsu Special Alarm Points are what we will discuss here.

Kyusho Special Alarm Points

Special Alarm Points when activated affect different meridians bilaterally but also the related organs and energy sources. Here is a list of some of the most useful of the Kyusho Jitsu Special Alarm Points.

  1. LI-06 – Activates Liver and Gall Bladder bilaterally as well as affects both organs
  2. GB-21 – Activates Gall Bladder and Triple Warmer bilaterally as well as affects the
    organs Gall Bladder and the Endocrine Systems
  3. SP-21 – Affects the entire chest and back area of the upper body as well as cause an imbalance between the Qi and Blood sides of the body. Here is more on SP-21
  4. PC-06 - Weakens the area of the chest on the body making it less resistant to strikes.

Kyusho Special Alarm Points - PC-06

Kyusho Special Alarm Points PC-06

PC-06 is located on the wrist, just above the joint.  This is one of my favorite of all the Kyusho Jitsu Special Alarm Points because it is readily accessible.

To see the affect strike your partner with about a 25-30% force on the sternum. Next press on the pressure point PC-06 and redo the strike with the same of less force.

You will find a profound increase in the affect.

The increase in affect is because PC-06 weakens the chest while it is being activated. The affect will stop as soon as the pressure point is release. I have replicated this on everyone I have worked with!

PC-06 also tends to increase pain when related to any kind of joint manipulation. Having your partner in as an example a finger lock and then pressing on PC-06 will increase the pain of the lock dramatically! 

Here is a short video demonstrating this. In the video I refer to PC-06 as a setup point, which it also is!

Special Alarm Point are also tied into many other different kinds of "special function" pressure points like the following.

  • Underlying Indicator Points
  • Confluent Points
  • Influential Points
Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

I hope from this article you can see the power of Kyusho Special Alarm Points.

You will also notice that I am referencing other articles on this blog for different pressure points so you will have as much information as possible!

There are 361 standard pressure points on the human body, each with their own specific characteristics!  And as you can see the study of the science of pressure point self defense is very deep! These pressure points are all referenced from my new book called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. I will give you more information on this below!

5 Best Knockout Pressure Points

5 BEST Knockout Pressure Points

The 5 Best Knockout Pressure Points

So today lets talk about neurological knockouts​​​​ and what the the 5 BEST Knockout Pressure Points. Now what do I mean when I say knockout pressure points?  These are pressure points that CAN result in a neurological knockout when they are the ONLY points struck. No setup required!

5 BEST Knockout Pressure Points

No setup? Really????

I know you are used to people talking about setting up pressure point knockouts, and that is the VERY best way to go! However I will explain more about that later in the article. But, you also need to know pressure points that will cause a knockout with one hit! This is especially important in self defense! An attack must end FAST. Most of all this helps to assure your success. If you do the work! 

How does this happen?

Time for some anatomy lessons! There are pressure points in the body that lie in very critical places.  When you get down to basics, Kyusho Jitsu is really simply nerve strikes. So if we are just hitting nerves why do we need this long study? Because the study, the science behind pressure point self defense, and knockout pressure points helps increase the odds of success. Especially if the target you want to not available when you want it!

So lets get started shall we?

Top 5 Best Knockout Pressure Points

1) Stomach 5 - ST-05 tends to be everyone's "go to" knockout pressure point. The reason this point is so important is the nerve in most people is very accessible. For some it is deeper and less effective.  This is biology, not training! 

To reach the nerve which is part of the Mandibular Branch of nerves your need to use 2-Way Action and strike in and to the back of the opposite side of the head. You may also strike it to the front and across to the other side.

In this area, there is also a branch of the Internal Jugular Vein These nerves and veins are on the underside area of the jaw, protected by the jaw itself.

BEST Knockout Pressure Points
Pressure Point Knockouts

2) Gall Bladder 20 -   Gallbladder 20 is another of the favorite points for Kyusho Jitsu practitioners for head knockouts. This point lies in the 2 hollows at the base of the back of the skull.

Now GB-20 is a Wood element point that is hit up and in to the other side of the head. The direction “up” assumes the person to be standing like the illustration.

This point along with Bladder 10 are excellent knockout points mostly due to being at the back of the head near the spinal column. BL-10 is however an extremely dangerous Dim Mak Pressure Point. 

And...


In this area run the Greater and Lesser Occipital Nerves. There is also a large but thin mass of muscle in the area, up into the head and down to the shoulder area. The 2 nerves while serving many functions also help to protect the integrity of the spinal columns connection to the skull. 

A hard-enough blow can tear the muscles and therefore cause a tear in the spinal cord. Permanent paralysis and death can occur under the right conditions.

3) Large Intestine 18 - Not as popular but incredibly effective LI-18 is therefore on my list! This point lies at the center of the side of the neck as shown in the diagram below. You can map it directly below, straight down from TW-17.

Striking in and straight across will cause intense pain and if there is setup done it will take little effort for a knockout. As a stand alone point a knockout can be obtained but the best result will come if you can secure the neck with the other hand. 

From the standpoint of the nervous system we are once again attacking the lesser occipital nerve. This nerve has many functions as mentioned previously and a hard strike will basically overload it and cause the attacker to go unconscious.

The Pressure Point Large Intestine 18

Cool eh?

Pressure Point Spleen 21

4) Spleen 21 - SP-21 is one of the MOST, if not the MOST DANGEROUS​​​​ knockout pressure points on the body. Death can result from hard strike especially on the left side of the body due to the proximity of the heart. The point is located on the lateral aspect of the chest, on the mid-axillary line, in the 6th intercostal space. I only mention this one because it is a great pressure point in a life or death situation.

The reason this, and other body points are knockout pressure points is because the brain and the nervous system will ALWAYS protect the integrity of the ribs, and assure the safety of the lungs. 



5) Spleen 11 - Yes SP-11, if you know your pressure points you will fast realize this is a LEG point. You can knockout someone out with one shot to this point if you hit it correctly, and HARD ENOUGH! 

How does this happen? This knockout pressure points lies on the femur in close proximity to the femoral artery. If this point is hit with enough force there is a good chance the leg with break. With the potential of a rupture to the femoral artery as a result! Therefore this overload with cause a neurological knockout! 

BEST Knockout Pressure Points

Here is a sample of a Knockout at SP-11

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

There are literally dozens of pressure points on the body that will cause a neurological knockout.

Today I have given you 5 that can be used in self defense without setup provided enough force is applied. 

What you really need to become GREAT and Master the science of pressure point self defense then you need the proper reference materials.

Below is a link to one such book. It will show you an excerpt from Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. This book is a breakdown of every pressure point on the body!

The Martial Arts Punch [Sport]

Shares

Martial Arts Punch

* The Martial Arts Punch [Sport]

One of the worst techniques seen in the martial arts world is the current version of the punch being taught today. And as i am calling it here, the Martial Arts Punch. it is mechanically terrible and in my view has been taught to the western world wrong for many reasons. 

Today I will examine what is wrong with it, and how easily it can be corrected to increase its effectiveness dramatically

Martial Arts Punch - History

Much of martial art history is passed down from master to student. Often times there is really very little written documentation.However the history of the punch we see today in the Korean and Japanese martial arts is a watered down sport version. I am told this style of punch was created for the teaching of children to assure safety.

And then taught to the western military as being correct. And I can understand why too! Right, wrong or indifferent WWII had a profound affect on the Japanese people. 

So what is wrong with the punch? First the fist is over rotated and the position of the thumb is usually incorrect.

Martial Arts Punch - Bad Body Position

The Martial Arts Punch [Sport]

From the image to the left you will notice the rotation of the hand. Mechanically this is 45 degrees over rotated!

Plus you can see how the thumb touches the "middle finger" or Pericardium Finger. And also notice the shape of the top of the hand.

All working together to produce an inferior striking implement. 

We also need to take in to account the 2 bones inside of the arm. We have the Radius Bone [Thumb Side] and the Ulna Bone. [Pinky side] 

Rather than go into a 1000 word explanation of exactly why this all matters please watch the short video below. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

The more time, effort and study you put into understanding Kyusho Jitsu & Correct Body Mechanics the more devastating your results will be. It is simply part of the laws of physics and energy transfer. 

You also help greatly reduce the chances of injury, while increasing the effectiveness of your techniques. 

Have you ever injured your hand or wrist striking? Tell us about it here!

The ancient martial arts of China still today hold many secrets. And one of these secrets is a method of superior striking with special hand positions. These are called the Ji Hands of Bubishi.

And the very best thing about them is they are not just incredible methods of transferring energy in a strike, but also mechanically very superior to the conventional methods.

What is the Dim Mak Project?

Shares

Dim Mak Project

Join the Dim Mak Project

What is the Dim Mak Project? This is something I have not written on in a very long time. So today lets take a look at what the Dim Mak Project is and why it even exists.

Back in 2011 I began my training to become a level five instructor in Kyusho Jitsu with KIA [Kyusho International Alliance]. Some of the things I learned from Grand Master Steve Stewart made me very curious as we had never discussed this before. 

One of the things he was teaching was about the blood/chi division of the human body. This really made me think. And gave me the desire to do some serious research to understand all of this. 

Then in 2013 I began to teach some of my findings in this area, and realized what the difference were between Dim Mak and Kyusho Jitsu. This was a real revelation for me.

Then is 2015 I picked up the study once again. I compared by ideas and notes with Dim Mak information I could find, and tested things out on the dojo floor. And this was how the Dim Mak Project was born.. 

Dim Mak Project - The Book

The first stage of bringing this information to the public was to turn all of my notes into a book. I was very unsure as to whether people would be interested in Dim Mak research from someone who never formally studied the art. But I was very pleasantly surprised to discover there was a lot of interest. 

The release of the book came in late 2017 to excellent reviews. 

Understanding Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

Dim Mak Project - Courses

Because of the success of the eBook I decided I want to do a video followup. Which I did do and released in late December 2017. It was a moderate success also!. Not like the book was, but I have no complaints!

At this point in time i did a pole as to whether Kyusho Jitsu students would like a full course(s) on the things i had discovered. And with that the Novice Dim Mak Project Course was created. Followed by the Advanced Dim Mak Project CourseBoth of which are still available today at Kyusho Jitsu University

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Are you interested in learning more about the Dim Mak Project. We have a dedicated website to it you can visit,  but I think even better is to get something for FREE to check out exactly what I have been researching and teaching.

Kyusho Jitsu Factors of an Opponent

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Factors

* Kyusho Jitsu Factors of an Opponent

There is a principle in Kyusho Jitsu that causes some questions and confusion. So today I am going to address the 3 Kyusho Jitsu Factors of an Opponent. This is not a technique or an application that you perform. But rather an understanding of the natural laws of self defense and the world. 

The main idea behind this is we live in a 3 dimensional world, and this FACT can be used to our advantage.

What are the 3 Kyusho Jitsu Factors of an Opponent?

  • 1
    Height - How tall a person is.
  • 2
    Width - The measurement from shoulder to shoulder
  • 3
    Depth - The 3rd Dimension

Kyusho Jitsu Factors - Height - Width - Depth

* Stance Kyusho Jitsu Factors of an Opponent

The actual height of the attacker really has no meaning. it is only the fact that there is height we are concerned about. Why this matters is that in order for someone to stand, and to move forward, sideways or backwards there must be "balance." And this balance is very fragile!

Next we have the "width" of the attacker. Once again the distance is irrelevant. Only the fact that his exists is what matters. 

Finally we have "depth" and without depth movement would not be possible. And that is what the 3 Kyusho Jitsu Factors are all about. Movement and how to control movement by attacking these Factors.

And the idea behind this is very simple. If when I respond to an attack I eliminate 2 of the 3 factors and then the 3rd automatically cancels out. But there is more to it than this as we must be efficient and not end up affecting ourselves. 

Kyusho Jitsu Factors - Balance

The key to this entire process is balance and balance has its primary basis in depth. If we look at a "forward bo" or "walking stance" and add a reverse middle punch we have a very power geometric stance with the focal point of the power being the fist of the reverse middle punch. 

What you have is a "triangle" which is the basis for the power this punch can deliver. You can also say that the "body mechanics" of this punch are excellent. 

This punch delivered with the correct body mechanics will mean the back leg is locked, the front knee is bent, and the punch is centered within the body. The feet at a shoulder and a half wide.

This provides a triangle from the feet to the fist, and also the shoulders to the fist. 

Kyusho Jitsu Factor - stance

Now lets go into detail on how this all ties together in this exclusive video!

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

What does any of this have to do with Kyusho Jitsu? I never once mentioned the words "Pressure Points" did i?

Well you can use pressure points in a grappling situation to make this happen, and when you fully understand how this works and can apply this knowledge you can open the body up for more and better pressure point access!

That is why this is such important information! Plus you should also read the sister article on the Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle too!

Pressure Point GB-20 [Gall Bladder]

Shares

Pressure Point GB-20

Pressure Point GB-20

I have been remiss! For the last several months I have been doing a series of posts on the various pressure points on the body and somehow I forgot to do Pressure Point GB-20! Therefore today we shall take a deep look at this very popular pressure point.  How it works and what are the risks.

Pressure Point GB-20 - Location

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


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

Pressure Point GB-20
Pressure Point GB-20 Trapezius Muscle

Pressure Point GB-20 - Dangers

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

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

As you can see from the above image the Trapezius and other muscles of the neck and back hold the skull and spine together and allow movement.

Now a light to medium strike to GB-20 with the correct angle and direction of up and across to the other side of the skull towards the face will cause a "mild" brain shock. This will result in some brain dysfunction like dizziness. 

A medium strike will cause more brain dysfunction and the attacker will tend to fall forward in a semi unconscious state. And a medium strike also has the risk of concussion.

Also a hard strike aside from brain dysfunction can cause a release of the Trapezius muscle which can result in a dislocation of the spine to skull. This is what makes GB-20 dangerous as permanent spinal cord damage is possible as well as death. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

While GB-20 is far from the most dangerous pressure point on the body it can be. Because of its location in the notch at the side/base of the skull it can be rather difficult to hit "well." There is a better option. 

Located about 2 cun below GB-20 is the wake up nerve. Striking this nerve bundle "in and down", into the body has a dramatic effect on the functioning of the brain without the risk of damage to the spinal cord.

My recommendation is always to, before striking a pressure point,  have as much knowledge as possible about it! Without proper knowledge there can be unintended consequences for the Uki and their health.

Are there any pressure points you would like to see me write about? Comment here.


Gaining Knowledge

One of the very best ways to assure knowledge is proper reference materials. Below is a form that you can fill out for a "Sneak Peak" of my book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy. This book covers information on all 361 pressure points as well as a host of other very important information. This book is the Gray's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu!

Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle

* Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle

I have recently had a few questioned asked about the Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle and therefore today I will address this. This is a principle that is really not talked about very often. However in the changing face of the martial arts world today it is a good idea to discuss this.

The Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle is based on 3 different parts. They are as follows.

  • 1
    Mass
  • 2
    Torque
  • 3
    Marriage of Gravity

Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle - Mass

The first of the principles is "mass." I think it is fairly obvious we are talking about body and muscle weight. Now the first thing I have to say about all of the principles is that the "working aspects" are greatly over simplified! Going into the details I will today will help you with proper training!

When we look at mass you will find it is variable. Mass in motion has more effect than mass at rest. This involves different laws of Physics. The first being the Law of Inertia and the second Newton's Law of Motion.

Law of Inertia:

The tendency of an object in motion to remain in motion and the tendency of an object at rest to remain at rest unless acted upon by an external force. 

Law of Motion:

Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle Newton-laws-of-motion

"Force is equal to the change in momentum per change in time. For a constant mass, force equals mass times acceleration." 

This is written in mathematical form as F = ma

Therefore as I am sure you can see that the more body weight the greater the force or power. However force can also be increased by increasing acceleration speed. 

Today there is an incorrect though process about "Bulking Up" to increase power. Mathematically it is correct, however in application it tends not to work very well. Why is this? 

There are several reasons! The first is the more mass the more difficult to overcome inertia! And the second is the extra body mass has a directly negative affect on principle 2, which is "torque."  Now people will argue that is shows more power on the "blunt" striking force tests, and this is true. But this is a "static" test and does not translate well to motion.  

Therefore an increase in mass will impact torque and as a result reduce acceleration. 

Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle - Torque

Movement in the human body is control by the muscular systems, that uses the spine as a pivoting point.

Without the spine being able to move the way it does motions like walking and reaching would not happen. 

Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle

If any part of the system is impaired, then motion also becomes very restricted. This is a 2 part control system, as we look at motion from the hips, and also at the shoulder area. 

The systems of the body in a healthy person are in perfect balance. Power training in excess, and done without regard to this "balance" while providing an increase in mass and therefore an increase in static power will restrict torque. This makes the power increase very inefficient! 

Is inefficiency important? Yes because of energy loss! The harder movement is the more power is wasted and not applied. This is often referred to as "muscle bound."

The goal of the martial artist must be efficiency of movement. This is the true formula to creating power.

Kyusho Jitsu Power Principle - Gravity

This is a rather simple part, however it has generated a lot of questions. First I do not like the word "gravity" as it is overused and has never been proven. it is a theory which is fine. We are accepting observation as law, which is not the correct method of doing things. And most physicists are happy to admit this. 

What we observe in life with objects falling is actually the law of density and buoyancy. This is why object fall to the ground and at what speeds they fall. There are many factors at play here. [a balloon is lighter than air therefore more buoyant]

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

For the purpose of a martial artist creating power is based on the idea that since our mass is denser than the air we move in, we will create more power moving in a downward arch versus and upward arch. 

Upward motion require we overcome the inertia of our mass, while downward motion we do not need to overcome our mass because we are denser than air.

Now really the terminology does not matter. You can certainly call it gravity if you wish. I just personally prefer using "laws" versus "theory" whenever possible.

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

In conclusion this is basis of power generation for not just the Kyusho Jitsu student, but any martial artist. Today when we focus on power we are missing an important part of the equation. 

This is also how a person of smaller size can overcome a larger opponent! And idea lost in today's competitive martial art environment. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to post them here

Dim Mak Pressure Point BL-10

Shares

Dim Mak Pressure Point BL-10

* Dim Mak Pressure Point BL-10

As I continue to discuss the various pressure points on the body, and what their purposes can be I will address one that is not often discussed. That is Dim Mak Pressure Point BL-10 or Urinary Bladder 10. 

How dangerous a pressure point is BL-10? Proper striking methods to this pressure point can result in death! Now I did not discuss this one in my previous articles on Deadly Pressure Points, but let look at this one now!

Dim Mak Pressure Point BL-10 - Location

What makes a pressure point potentially deadly? There are dozens of pressure points on the body that can cause death. And the reason is location. Depending on the area, their proximity to the related organ, nerves and arteries.

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

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

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

Dim Mak Pressure Point BL-10 - Affects

What are the immediate affects of a strike to BL-10. The first thing to consider is that strike this point on the body will result in striking BL-10 bilaterally. There is no way to hit one side without hitting the other. This always increase the effect!

There will be an immediate buildup of Yang Chi in the area which results in a feeling of disconnection and that the body is being deprived of air. The lungs will work, but the feeling of lack of oxygen will make the attacker feel weak.

A knockout is very likely to occur also from a medium strike. A hard strike can result in death due to physical damage to the brain stem. 

However a strike to area with a Ji Hand, or energy hand can result in death without noticeable damage to the area. Ji Hands are discussed in great details in the Advanced Dim Mak Project Course

And a delayed result is possible when used in conjunction with other pressure points such as ST-09 or CV-17. However I will not go into further details on this. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

The first thing I will say is that is pressure point is not to be played around with.

Doing so is grossly negligent now that you are aware of the potential consequences. So why would I write about this? 

Because education is always better than ignorance! Ignorance is not bliss, and there is far too much ignorance is our world today!

So are there any other pressure points you would like to see discussed? Leave me a comment here.

Death Touch Pressure Points

Death Touch Pressure Points

Death Touch Pressure Points

For the last few months I have been doing a series of articles on various pressure points and different types of pressure points on the body. Today I will take a look at the Death Touch Pressure Points of Dim Mak. This is not going to be an exhaustive article. Just one that makes reference to which pressure points are which and why. I will provide references to other articles for more details.

Death Touch Pressure Points - Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

Back a few week ago I wrote an article called Kyusho Vs Dim Mak which explained the differences between the 2 arts. Therefore I will not go back into those details. 

So what are "death touch pressure points?" The idea behind Dim Mak as explained in the articled linked above to to attack not just the nervous system of the body, but rather the "vascular" or blood systems of the body.

Therefore the pressure points desired with have an affect on the vascular system or the nerves that directly control this system.

*Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

Now it would surprise you as to where some of these pressure points are located. With the above statement you would consider them to all be part of the chest cavity. However death touch pressure points can be found all over the body. This even includes the arms and legs.

Why is that? Because they not only tie into the arterial systems of the body, but the nervous systems as well.  The body is connected together in many ways. And therefore all these systems matter. Dysfunction in one area of the body has a affect on the entire body.

Death Touch Pressure Point Striking

death touch pressure points

In Dim Mak striking is done in a different manner than with Kyusho Jitsu. Dim Mak is about "deep tissue" strikes rather than nerve strikes of energy strikes to nerve bundles. 

The idea of deep tissue striking is to drive Ki or Chi energy into the body to cause a temporary disruption or permanent damage to the area. There are many different types of deep tissue striking tools. One of which is the "Vibrating Palm" and the others being the 6 Ji Hands of Bubishi."

All of these striking actions and methods are cover in my Dim Mak Project Courses at Kyusho Jitsu University. Now this is an over simplification of the striking.  

Sample Pressure Points of Dim Mak

Below I am going to give you a list of pressure points that are considered to be Dim Mak Points.  This list is far from exhaustive, however if I have done an article on the Pressure Point in question I will link it. 

The Short List of Dim Mak Points

For a complete list of these pressure points you can refer to my Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy book. This coming summer I will be doing an update to give more information on the "Dim Mak" pressure points. Anyone who has purchased this book will get the new edition when finished FREE of charge. Learn more about Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy here.

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

To study Dim Mak is a logical progress for the student of Kyusho Jitsu. They are irrevocably tied together! 

Do you have any personal experience with the study of Dim Mak? I would love to here about it! Comment here!

Kyusho 2 Way Action

Shares

Kyusho 2 Way Action

Kyusho 2 Way Action

What am I talking about when I say "Kyusho 2 Way Action?" Today I will go into details on this very important aspect of the science of pressure point self defense. Kyusho 2 Way Action is what makes all this work!

Kyusho 2 Way Action - History

2 Way Action has always existed in martial arts. However not as a "teaching." It was something you saw the master do, or you did not. It was Professor Wally Jay the founder of Small Circle Jujitsu who refined this concept and taught it.

But Kyusho 2 Way Action is what makes everything work! 2 Way Action is also referred to as "complex motion."

Here is a short video to help explain how this works

Kyusho 2 Way Action - Striking

Striking is vastly different than as an example joint manipulation. So today I want to really break this all down for you. The video above will give you a basic understanding of what I am talking about. Now let's go into details on what kind of result you would get during a strike.

Kyusho 2 Way Action - Fulcrum/Lever Activation

Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks

Now Kyusho 2 Way Action does not just refer to striking. It also refers to joint manipulation as well!

And my observations are that most people simply do not understand how a joint lock, or manipulation actually work!

Often time the activation is done in the wrong order, causing a massive decrease in effectiveness and pain when applied.

So how do you tell the difference? The fulcrum is the part of the hand/wrist that is closest to the Uki's body when the lock has been APPLIED

So as an example in a finger lock, the main knuckles at the bottom of the finger are the fulcrum and the fingers are the lever. 

In the final video I go into a great amount of detail on Kyusho 2 Way Action, as well as intent, which is another very important subject!

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Once 2 Way Action is fully understood and internalized it is a real game changer in all aspects of martial arts training. The martial arts world owes much to the Jay family for their revolutionary work in the martial arts.

Have you ever had the opportunity to train with one of the Jays? Leave me a comment and tell me about it!
