3 Most Painful Arm Pressure Points

Most Painful Arm Pressure Points

What are the Top 3 MOST Painful Arm Pressure Points? The arms are critical in self defense because this is what the attacker brings forward first! Therefore a solid understanding of the most effective and painful Pressure Points of the arms is a must!

When I say effective pressure points I am referring to the ones that work on the MAJORITY of people tested. When I say "painful" I am referring to a result from pain that does not allow the fight to continue. Nothing in self defense can be guaranteed. There are no guarantees in life.

Painful Arm Pressure Points - LI-10

Painful Arm Pressure Points

This is an outstanding pressure point, located on the upper part of the forearm near the elbow. This is a STRIKE point, however you can also "press" on it, but I personally do not recommend that in a self defense situation. 

This Pressure Point is struck straight through like an arrow.  Note the "through!" You hit this point HARD, striking through  towards the ground.  There is no "light touch" for pressure points. Always remember light is for training and therefore not hurting your partner. The streets are DIFFERENT!

When this point is hit hard there is intense pain, and the hand will open slowly as the pain shoots towards it. The entire arm will go numb from the elbow to the hand. Any weapon will be DROPPED. The effect can last 10 to 20 minutes depending on how hard and clean the hit is. But always assume a short recovery time! 

Reference - Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

LI-10:

One of the most popular and easiest to access pressure points on the body LI-10. Located 2 cun below LI-11, on the radial aspect of the radius, in the extensor carpi radialis brevis and longus muscles.

This pressure point can have a huge effect on the body. A strike straight down and through will paralyze the arm, and in some cases can potentially stop the heart.

Striking upward causes a shock wave to rise up the arm into the upper body. Will cause knock out if struck hard enough. When used with ST 9 has the potential for begin a deathblow!

This pressure point will affect the entire Large Intestine Meridian, especially around the arm, neck and face, hence the fact that ST 9 works really well with this pressure point. Again, when struck slightly upwards, the lower body will lose Chi and cause nausea. I have personally seen instances of diarrhea that can last for many days of untreated.

Painful Arm Pressure Points - LU-06

LU-06 Painful Arm Pressure Points

This is another very effective pressure point located on the inside of the arm halfway between the elbow and hand on the thumb side.  This point, located mid radial bone works on everyone I have ever tried it one. This is why it is such an effective pressure point.

Striking all pressure points and getting a good results means you need to be using 2 Way Action. Below is a short video demonstrating both Lung 6 and 2 Way action. 

Also note, the tighter the grip, the more painful the result! There is also something else very interesting about this pressure point. If the attacker has any chronic lung issues, striking this point will cause them to cough. Therefore telling you more about them and potential attack points. 

Reference - Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

LU-06:


This Pressure Point is located on the palmar aspect of the forearm, on the line joining LU 9 to LU 5, 7 cun above LU 9. The point is in the brachioradialis muscle, in the lateral margin at the upper extremity of the pronator teres muscle and the medial margin of the extensor carpi radialis brevis and longus muscles.

When struck hard the arm will immediately begin to go numb down towards the hand. The hand will also open slowly if the fist was closed. The tighter the fist is held the more pain associated with the strike.

Chest pain is also common. Striking too hard, too often can also cause sever breathing distress which can lead to death. This Pressure Point like LU-05 can also be used for Lung resuscitation.

Painful Arm Pressure Points - TW-17

TW-11 Painful Arm Pressure Points

Painful Arm Pressure Points

This is the last of the 3 most effective pressure points of the arms and it is one of my favorites. This point also works on everyone I have ever tried it on! I also had the occasion many, many years ago to use it in self defense. This was an incident in 2007 in Caracas Venezuela at the airport. The result was a fleeing attacker with a dislocation of the elbow.

Now this pressure point is located just above the elbow joint at the tendon.  The best result will come when the hand is twist so the palm is in the same direction as the elbow, exposing the point more clearly. However a hard strike will compensate for the hand position. Striking or rubbing this point will cause the elbow to release making dislocation easy. 

Here is another short video explaining how to active this point!

Reference - Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

TW-11

Located 1 cun above TW-10. This pressure point weakens the elbow joint itself making it very easy to break or dislocate the elbow. Basically, stimulation releases the joint.

This is an excellent point to stimulate in any self defense techniques in which the arm is straight. This is one of my personal favorite pressure points.


In Conclusion

There are literally a hundred pressure points on the body that can cause intense pain when attacked. However not all are very accessible, which in self defense is a BIG consideration. This is why I chose these 3 to begin with.

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

What is the difference Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

There is much controversy in the martial arts world about the ancient art of Dim Mak, as well as the not so ancient science of Kyusho Jitsu. Today I am going to do a comparison of Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu. Expose the different between the 2 arts, if there is any and how each can be studied in details. 

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu - Dim Mak

The legends of Dim Mak are countless! Right up to the 20th century as many people still believe today that Dim Mak was the cause of the death of martial arts legend Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee - Dim Mak vs Kyusho Jitsu

Now myself, I do not think Bruce Lee was killed by the "death touch" however he did have a lot of enemies, and his death is questionable at best.  Then of course after the totally unnecessary and ridiculous way in which his son Brandon died, more fuel was added to the fire.

*Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

The term "Dim Mak" means to "press artery."  Dim Mak is a method in which to "attack" the vascular systems of the human body and obtain a predictable and often deadly result.

It does not mean "Death Touch" as tabloid publications who mock the martial arts, like Wikipedia, like to state.

And just try to update that information! You will not be allowed. They love to mock and spread misinformation.  I have tried and failed many times. 

Dim Mak originates or began in the ancient art of Taijiquan, which lead to the modern day exercise art of Tai Chi. Now today these terms have lost their meaning, however in ancient times Taijiquan was a deadly martial art! Today people tend to think they are the same thing. Which they are NOT.

Dim Mak uses the pressure point systems and meridian systems of the human body to attack the vascular systems. Pressure Points are used as almost a "portal" for vibrating energy strikes to enter the body.  There are hand positions which intensify the ability to strike, and help to transfer Ki or Chi into the attacker. These are called Ji Hands.

Not all pressure points work for this purpose. Therefore not all pressure points are considered to be Dim Mak points. Pressure Point like Stomach 9 are because of their proximity to a major artery. 

You can learn more about ST-09 by clicking the button below.

The over simplified explanation for how this works is that a strike is made which damages the vascular system in the local vicinity attacked and damage will occur after a time period. Depending on the area this can be immediate damage of damage that occurs later. An example of this is causing an aneurysm. Which would result in death anywhere from hours, to days, to weeks later.

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu - Kyusho

Now we will take a look at what I call the "science of pressure point self defense." The main idea behind Kyusho Jitsu is not the attack of the vascular system but rather the neurological systems of the human body. 

Nervous System -Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

The idea with a Kyusho Jitsu strike is to attack a nerve at a vulnerable place, which is a pressure point and therefore cause a dysfunction of the brain, or the area of the body attacked.

This dysfunction can be anything from a numbness in the limb, to intense local pain. And unconsciousness due to an overload of the system. AKA Kyusho Knockout

And a Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point strikes can cause death. This is depending on the area of the body and the impact of the strike. 

Both Kyusho Jitsu and Dim Mak are complex studies requiring time, dedication and hard work. There are no instant results with either system or art. However with work many amazing results are possible and predictable.

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu - in Conclusion

As you can see from the information above the major difference between these 2 arts.  However in its purest form Dim Mak covered the neurological aspects also. But it is not easy to find a complete "Dim Mak" art in today's world as much has been bleed out, no pun intended. 

Understanding Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

And as I stated, both arts require a lot of dedicated work and training! However the results are worth it! One of the areas that must be covered in great detail is the pressure point system of the body

And I have cover this in details in my new book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy, the Gray's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu. Plus you can take a look at a modern "interpretation" of Dim Mak also from here

A Question:

Do you believe that "delayed death"  is possible? Was this the cause of Bruce Lee's passing or do you accept "death by misadventure" which was the final result? You can click here to give us your thoughts!

A Black Belt is a symbol of excellence in training and execution in the martial arts world. In fact there is a corporation that has adopted this "system" within their company for the same reason! The corporation is called Six Sigma.

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification

Many Kyusho Jitsu systems today have abandoned the Black Belt in favor of "Levels' which while their right to do so, I believe is a disservice to the progress of the student! Therefore the KJWA still promotes to Black Belt!

How Kyusho Jitsu Stances Work

How Kyusho Jitsu Stances Work

Kyusho Jitsu stances

In the martial arts world in my opinion stances are among the most misunderstood of "techniques."  I use the word techniques because I really cannot decide on a word for description!  Perhaps that comes from trying to learn another language. But today I want to address Kyusho Jitsu Stances and their place in the science of pressure point self defense. 

Kyusho Jitsu Stances - Misunderstanding

I will often here martial arts instructors tell their students to get into their stance. And that is OK, as long as the student comes to understand that in self defense a stance is never "taken." As a training point this is fine, but the relationship to self defense is different. 

When you look at a self defense situation there are 2 very important aspect of the defender to understand. That is:

  1. Mobility
  2. Stability

The Kyusho Jitsu stance is obviously the "stability" aspect of the situation. However the confusion comes because of the way we train.  A stance is a transition point, not a place where you remain!

If I was going to compare it to music, the stance is pause between notes.  When you "take" a stance you cripple your movement, slowing yourself down and forcing a power versus power confrontation. Instead we move through stances taking advantage of a level point, then continuing to control or strike as needed. 

Kyusho Jitsu Stances - Kyusho Aspect
Kyusho Jitsu Stances Work

Note: The deeper the Kyusho Jitsu Stance the greater the element effect!

Now from a Kyusho Jitsu aspect, the Kyusho Jitsu Stances also relate directly to an element of the body. However once again in order to get the proper affect, it becomes a dance between mobility and stability!

If you have ever seen my oldest son move you will know how he has mastered this aspect of training! But on the Kyusho Jitsu Stances. Here is a breakdown.

  • Forward Bo [Walking Stance] - Fire element
  • Neutral Bo - Fire element
  • Neutral Bo - Fire element
  • 45 Degree Cat Stance - Metal element
  • Horse Stance Toes Out - Wood element
  • Horse Stance Toes Forward - Earth element
  • X Stance, Crane, Crossover etc - Water element

In Conclusion

This is the basic breakdown based on the traditional stances! This applies to all stances across all arts. If you are curious about a particular stance and its element that is not listed feel free to contact me! 

Question: Do you use any of these stances in your martial art? If so which ones are you using? You can answer by clicking here!

3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

Shares

Top 3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

Crippling Leg Pressure Points

3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

Today we will talk about the Top 3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points for self defense you need to know! There is an old saying, that when in doubt attack the legs! 

But what is the most effective way?

3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

The bigger the attacker the most fragile the legs. Legs do a lot of work as I am sure you realize. But when someone is BIG they work beyond what they should. Today there is an epidemic of obesity in the world. Especially in men. 

But that does not stop them from wanting to fight, or be a criminal! And you must understand your attacker, and what his weaknesses are! That is part of the study of the science of pressure point self defense.

Let's Attack the Knees!
Crippling Leg Pressure Points

This is the usual train of thought in the martial arts. And yes the knees are a weak area, especially on heavy people. There is a cluster of 4 pressure points around the knees that make great targets! I discuss these in DEPTH in the Novice Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course!

But today we will bypass the knees and go for PAIN! 

Leg Pressure Points

Let begin with the first of 3 leg pressure points with GB-31!

3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points GB-31

1) Gall Bladder 31- This point is located as you can see on thigh, midway down on the Yang side. It is hit straight in like an arrow! The knee makes a GREAT weapon against it too! What happens? The leg will CRAMP. If you strike it hard enough when the leg cramps the quadriceps will cramp so badly they will TEAR. This pressure point is also often called the Charlie Horse Point. You can read a full article on the pressure point here.

You cannot walk let alone continue to fight under these circumstances!  


2) Bladder 56 - As you can see from the diagram this on of the leg pressure points that lies mid calf. 

Here is Bladder 56 3 Crippling Leg Pressure Points

Striking this point, like GB-31 will cause an INTENSE calf cramp. I accidentally hit this point once too hard on my Uki and he ended up with a muscle tear. I know you are getting the idea! The best weapon for this is the heal of your foot! If you have heave boots on you will get an even better result! You can also use BL-57 or BL-58. But I have found BL-56 the most effective. 

If you can't walk....can't fight!


3) Spleen 11 - I have talked about SP-11 many times! Located mid upper thigh on the inside this is perhaps the BEST of all leg points. I know people expect me to go with SP-6, which is a great point! Most of all it is a setup point. 

But today I want PAIN!

Because of where the point is located it can cause a neurological knockout if you hit is hard enough. The attack is straight in like an arrow. The knee is a great weapon and so is a front kick! If you want to know HOW it can cause an knockout read 5 Best Knockout Pressure Points Here.

Spleen Meridian Leg

There is also a very good possibly with a hard strike of cracking or breaking the femur bone in the upper leg. As I said before, this ends the altercation.  Here is a full article on SP-11 too!

In Conclusion

The legs are one of the very best places to attack in self defense. And there are many more amazing pressure points other then these 3. I chose these 3 because they work on 99% of the people I have tested on! 

Also they are not difficult to use! Therefore the reason for me choosing these. If you would like to discover more pressure points on the legs, or other areas of the body then you need to look at my new eBook Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy!

So what so you think? Do you have any other pressure points you prefer? Leave a comment below and let me know about them! [Click Here to Comment]

This new book covers every pressure point on the body, all 361 of them. Plus extraordinary pressure points and other special points.  You can read about one of the most deadly pressure points on the body, ST-09 by clicking the button below!

Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

The Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

What are Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points? Before I go into some details here first let's lay the ground work in case all of this science of pressure point self defense is new to you. 

First I will define what a pressure point is. A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve comes to an end, where nerves cross over each other, and where a nerve branches off.

There are 309 standard pressure points on the human body, plus 52 more points on the "vessels" which brings the total to 361. Now this is ONLY looking at one side of body however with reference to the meridian pressure points. 

These pressure points have specific characteristics that are associated to the meridian they lie upon, the element of the meridian. And the polarity of the related organ of the body. Here is a link to an article on Pressure Point Basics which will help you if you need more information!

What are Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points?

These are essentially pressure points that were discovered after the mapping of the original 361. They are found in many different places on the body. These Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points also have no direct relationship to any meridians or elements. 

Mue-28 -Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

In this bad editing job I did here on this picture I give you Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points MUE-28. The pressure point is located in very close proximity to the Heart Meridian and therefore in the case will take on the characteristics of the Heart Meridian.

When struck across the arm, with 2 way action it releases the wrist.

The use of Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points does vary from point to point. Plus not all of them have any real application in Kyusho Jitsu. That being said I will give you a breakdown of some of the more useful ones. 

And I should warn you, this is not novice material! 

Extraordinary Pressure Points Summary

  • They have no relationship to Yin or Yang.
  • Have no underlying relationship with each other.
  • "Tend” to take on the characteristics of the closest meridian, but now always.
  • May run over-top of another meridian
  • Also help to coordinate the balance of Chi and Blood
  • May run over-top of another meridian
  • Assist in the functions of the regular meridians
Ex=HN-9 Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

Extraordinary Point Listing and Locations

 1. M-HN-3 - Glabella area or the area between the eyebrows and nose
 2. M-HN-9 - Beside the nose.
 3. M-HN-14 - Bridge of the Nose
 4. M-HN-19 – Located on the lateral corner of the chin
 5. M-CA-23 - Umbilicus Triangle
 6. M-CA-18 - Lateral Pelvis
 7. M-UE-24 - Between the 2 and 3rd metacarpal
 8. M-EU-26 - Hollow of the elbow
 9. M-EU-48 - Anterior Shoulder area
 10. M-UE-27 – Above the knee

M-Hn-19 Kyusho Extraordinary Pressure Points

Now I am not today going to go into details about the functionality of each of the Extraordinary Pressure Points. This is all very advanced information.  However understanding their existence, and their basic use is important.


Extraordinary Pressure Points have a very important function in Dim Mak because they upset the natural blood and energy balances of the body. 

Keeping all of this kind of information in balance, able to reference is a difficult task. There are a lot of other very "special pressure points" each with very important and different affects on the body.

Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

This information above is just a small example of what you will find in my new book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy! If you would like to see a quick excerpt from the book click on the link below! This is about Pressure Point St-09!

And some great news for you! If you fill out the form below, then confirm your email I will send you 2 FREE Meridian Chapter of this new book! In this new book I am breaking down every pressure point on the body, their locations and effects. This includes the special point so!

The Kyusho 5 Element Theory

The Kyusho 5 Element Theory

Kyusho 5 Element Theory

It is funny how fast people are to dismiss the knowledge of "old" stating that it has been "debunked" or disproven, when the actual truth is that the knowledge has simply been discarded in light of a different path. The same goes for the Kyusho 5 Element Theory, which in fact belongs to Taoist and Eastern Medicine.

Today many different Kyusho Jitsu instructors who were taught the "old way" not have completely abandoned them for a more modern approach. While I agree with the modern approach aspect I disagree with walking away from the "old ways."

I think that is a mistake and a great disservice to the community.

Kyusho 5 Element Theory - Do they exist?

The Kyusho 5 Element Theory is based on nature. So first lets take a look at this "cycle" that is an explanation for creation.

Rain [water] causes the growth of plants [wood]. Then these plants and trees are scorched in the summer summer sun and feed the flames when fire comes. [forest fires as an example] From the flames of the [fire] the plants turn to ash, which in turn  become the [earth.] 

Within the earth are formed metal ores. [Metals], when cold [at night], cause water to condense and then evaporate in the sun, forming the rain that begins the creative cycle all over again.

The next question is do these "elements" exist in people? The "modern" look at the world and its dependency on chemicals would say no. But lets look shall we?

Fire - Kyusho 5 Element Theory

Fire: The human body produces heat and does so at an even 37 degrees centigrade. When the body overheats or fails to heat death occurs.

Metals: The body contains countless numbers of metals like iron to name only one.

Wood: Fiber which is a requirement of proper body functions is one such example.

Earth: Does the body have "earth" in it? Many will talk about the idea of returning to the ashes up death which is very true. But we are a "carbon" based life form. Carbon is a non metallic element found in the earth.

Kyusho 5 Element Theory - Water

The POWER of Water. The Black Sea in Constanta Romania.​

"Water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend." Bruce Lee

Water: Do I really need to address this one? Depending on the part of the body the average amount of water will vary, the brain being the highest content. The average seems to change from authority to authority, but let's call it 60%. And considering the average person in the western world is dehydrated you can see an issue I hope. 

Now this is all oversimplification. A little research and you will find much more information. 

Kyusho 5 Element Theory - Meridians

The Pressure Point Pericardium 6

Now each meridian on the body is linked to an organ. And each organ is represented by an element.  And these are all grouped in a Yin and Yang sequence. There is a pairing of organs, one yin and one yang, which in turn represent and element and a time of day in which the organ is most active. 

Let's take a look at these organs and their groupings.

Yin Organs

  • Heart - Fire 
  • Pericardium - Fire
  • Lung - Metal
  • Kidney - Water
  • Liver - Wood
  • Spleen - Earth

Yang Organs

  • Small Intestine - Fire
  • Triple Warmer - Fire
  • Large Intestine - Metal
  • Bladder - Water
  • Gall Bladder - Wood
  • Stomach - Earth

You will note that each organ has an element association. Now this association is not an absolute! Yes there are people who try to argue against this by saying there is no wood in the liver. And obviously I do not deal with people like this. 

The organ however has a "predominance" of one element but contain all elements. This information is a basis for Chinese and other Asian medicines. And these people are far better at promoting "health" than the western medical world is. Western medicine is about disaster relief. Not about prevention. And I speak from personal experience. 

On to the Kyusho Jitsu aspects of all of this.

Kyusho 5 Element Theory - Cycle of Destruction

Understanding the Yin-Yang Symbol

For every positive there must be a negative. That is how our reality works. And like the Yin/Yang symbol, health comes in the balance, not in the extremes. Using the Cycle of Destruction our goal is to take the body to an extreme.

This imbalance can come in the form of brain dysfunction, often times referred to as a knockout. Body dysfunction, the inability to use a limb temporarily. And even death found in the art of Dim Mak

In the science of pressure point self defense I still teach the Cycle of Destruction and the other "eastern" based principles and methods. I do however associate the western medical view with all this. 

Eastern vs Western Approach

Now why do I still teach this way when other have abandoned it? For one it works! Some will say not for the reasons I say it does.  Seriously! And if you are right, and I do not think you are, WHAT IS YOUR POINT? Aside from driving your ego.

But far more important is this provides a solid foundation for people to learn. And NOT just gifted visual learners.

But this teaching method helps everyone to learn. Here is a SOLID example of why!

Kyusho 5 Element Theory - Learning Kyusho

Kyusho 5 Element Theory wood

If I was ask you to think about "wood" what do you see? Depending the person is what the answer will be. I tend to see a log for a fire! What do you see?

Now if I ask you to visualize the "occipital nerve" what do you see? For the average person there is no response, they need to look it up. We do not under normal circumstance build an association with the brain teaching this way! So why do people teach exclusively this way? Good question! And yes I do have an opinion on this! Email me if you want to know it!

The Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

 But if I teach you about the division of the arm as "fire and metal" you can easily build an association in your unconscious mind and then begin to get a result. The result inspires you to learn more, and with this attitude success comes! 

And then I will add the other information as the student become ready to learn it! This is what being a "teacher" and not an "instructor" means. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In conclusion I hope you can see the values of still teaching the "traditional" methods and not just the current trends.

I believe teaching this way will include more students becoming successful and continuing their study in the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu.

This is just for fun. I was asked at a church demonstration in Windsor back in 2013 to do a knockout at the end of my demo teams performance. This one showed up on Facebook today so I added it here. Pretty basic ST-05 KO on a Uki Billy Borshuk whom I had never used for the purpose before. My catchers in this demo are Master Riccardo Pappini and Master Louise St Jacques. They are the signature on KJWA grading board

KJWA Kyusho Weekly News -
Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy Released

My new book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy has been released in the 1st edition form as of this writing. This book has been far more work than I expected mostly do to all the rechecking, reference for accuracy.

So back last week I released Edition 1 which is not complete. Edition 2 will be coming early next week. Then it will go for editing before the final version is released and the book is translated for other languages. 

I did this for a reason too! Because I did not want those who PreOrdered to wait any longer to get their hands on this than is necessary! After much thought also I left the preorder price in tact for a little while longer. As soon as the book is back from my editor Master Riccardo Pappini then the special price will end. 

All New Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy eBook

Below is an excerpt from the book

The Pressure Point Stomach 5

ST-09:


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

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

A harder strike can cause serious damage to the nervous and arterial systems of the area which will result in death. ST-09 is also Dim Mak points because an energy strike to this part of the system, both nervous and vascular, will cause enough "dysfunction" to result in death overtime.

Carotid Sinus Reflex:

The serious martial artist should be concerned about Carotid Sinus Reflex when it comes to this pressure point and ST-10. The effect is temporary loss of consciousness or a knockout that sometimes accompanies convulsive seizures. This is because of the power of the carotid sinus reflex when pressure builds up in one or both carotid sinuses.

Kyusho Pressure Point Reference

Kyusho Pressure Point Reference Materials

Kyusho Pressure Point Reference Materials

On January 17th 2019 I released the first edition of my Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy book with an update scheduled for early next week. And the final product to follow soon afterwards. I did this because of the tremendous lack of Kyusho Pressure Point Reference materials in the wild. Yes there are references out there. However I have found that often times the organization of the materials is lacking. Which is why I wrote this book!

There are no principles discussed in its pages, only pure reference materials meridian by meridian, pressure point by pressure point. This is truly a Kyusho Pressure Point Reference book, not something you read cover to cover to learn from.

The inspiration for this eBook aside from some great Kyusho / Pressure Point Masters is Gray's Anatomy.  That book, which I highly recommend to anyone serious about the science of pressure point self defense to get a copy of, was so beneficial to me. I decided this book was a must! 

Gray's Anatomy - Kyusho Pressure Point Reference

Kyusho Pressure Point Reference - Excerpts

I have been offering for some time a "Sneak Peak" at this book. The reason is that once completed it is gonna be expensive. The number of hours of work and research that goes into something like this is beyond what I honestly expected!  

And the funny thing is for every 5 people who requests a copy of the "Sneak Peak" only 1 of them will read it! And then they wonder why they have problems with their Kyusho education. But that is another subject! 


Excerpt from Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy below:

Kyusho Pressure Point Reference - Doing the Work

The Pressure Point Governor Vessel

As I said above 1 in 5 actually download the "Sneak Peak" after requesting it, and who knows how many read it! To date this has also been my best selling BOOK and I hope upon full release that everyone will use it! 

But I know that will not happen! Kyusho Jitsu study, like root martial arts study requires dedication and vigilance!

One of the issues in trying to study the science of pressure point self defense is finding a local instructor, which for most people is just not possible! I was fortunate as I was taught personally and directly by the best in the world, Grand Master Steve Stewart. And I would recommend everyone to learn from him. This however would be difficult! He runs the MOST SUCCESSFUL Martial Arts School in Canada and has a very success acupuncture clinic in London Ontario.

However my senior students in Canada, and grading board members Master Riccardo Pappini and Master Louise St Jacques still learn directly from GM Stewart monthly! 

And they tell me anything they discover all the time! So you learning linage here with me is still connected to my teacher!

Kyusho Pressure Point Science

Kyusho Pressure Point Science

Kyusho Pressure Point Science

Kyusho Pressure Point Science

The ability to succeed in your Kyusho Pressure Point Science study has a very clear path. Today I am going to help you to get a solid understanding of how this all works and you can be successful. 

The best way to learn is to follow "systems." Failure to follow a system makes the study of Kyusho Pressure Point Science far more of a challenge. The reason is that you may develop a tendency to not give enough attention to certain topics, and too much to others. 

Kyusho Pressure Point Science - Tip #1

Never ever listen to the opinions of people who have not successfully done the work! Failures in life, and this is the majority of people always want to keep you down with at a level with them. Surround yourself with people who have your best interests at heart. 

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Spain

I have a lot of personal experience with these kinds of situations and have had to remove people from my life to pursue my own goals. My closest friend in life decided he objected to my path in life and cut off all ties with me. Which is fine. I need to walk this path and someone who cannot support me is not a friend!

Things in life change and if you can accept that you will do much better in the long run!

Kyusho Pressure Point Science - Tip #2

In order to succeed in your Kyusho Pressure Point Science study you must set time aside for study. It is like training in the Dojo. If you do not dedicate time to it you will not succeed! After almost 35 years in the martial arts world do you know how many times I have heard "if I had stuck with it would be a ...Dan now." And they say it like somehow it actually means something?

The only path to success is work. No one is entitled to anything despite what today's ridiculous ideologies like to preach. 

Time Kyusho Pressure Point Science

Make sure you disciple yourself and set time aside daily for study! Even 10 minutes at first is fine!

Truth: When someone says they have no time it means they do not want to! 

Kyusho Pressure Point Science - Tip #3

Reverse engineer your striking for the areas that you would normally hit in your root art!

The Pressure Point Stomach 5

Don't try to find pressure points to hit! I know this sounds odd. However it is only logical. So how do you do it? Take a look at the techniques in your root art, see where are are targeting. 

As an example someone with a system that targets the head with strikes. See what part of the head you are striking, then see what pressure points are there, and learn about those.

This way you will come up with some favorites right away. As an example in my root art of Hapkido we did not target the back of the head. Therefore GB-20 was not at that time on my list of pressure points targets, but ST-05 was!

At the end of this post I have a special free report for you on the 10 Most Painful Pressure Points on the body. Download it, and it will help you!

Kyusho Pressure Point Science - Tip #4

The Cycle of Destruction

Learn the basic principles first! Leave the advanced materials until you feel confident with the basics. This way you do not get confused and frustrated. The 1st Five beginners principles lead into the advanced.  They complete a picture. So take your time and learn them well!

Kyusho Pressure Point Science - Tip #5

Reference materials! You need reference materials.  Not a lot necessarily, but leaving this type of study to memory is difficult unless you are the kind of person with an Eidetic Memory or great study skills. 

Here are 2 suggestions, one FREE the second requires a small investment in your education.
