The Kyusho Jitsu Mindset

Kyusho Jitsu Mindset

Kyusho Jitsu Mindset

What is the Kyusho Jitsu Mindset?  Well it tends to be very, very different from the mindset of the average martial artist. Especially in today's world. Martial Arts study is supposed to be a journey of not just physical movement but true understanding of the mind, body and spirit.

Today it is more about how much money you can win in the MMA/UFC circuits, how famous you can become and who's face you can punch in.

Sadly in much of the martial arts world today ego rules! But for the real martial arts students, and we are all students regardless of rank, it is about learning, developing and a strong code of ethics. 

So what is a Kyusho Jitsu Mindset?

The Kyusho Jitsu Mindset - Learning

The first part of this mindset is being eager to learn! Now I see a lot of this at first in the study. But over time this can dwindle off. Do people lack motivation these days?

Yes that is certainly part of it! Also many students want an instant result, without putting in the time and effort. Sorry life does not work like that! It never has! And no matter who says the opposite, they are just plain wrong.

There can never be a world with equality of outcome. All that idea does is promote laziness, shiftlessness and a broken society. So put that garbage from your head!  It is a lie told to you by the corrupt! [Politicians]

Life needs to have meaning, and meaning comes from getting off your butt and doing something.

OK, now it is well known that Kyusho Jitsu in already present, or part of every traditional martial arts system. It was just excluded from the teaching of many of the masters of old! The reason can be many! Perhaps it is because of WWII, or even that the Asian cultures just never liked the behavior of the Western Martial Arts mentality. 

The Kyusho Jitsu Mindset

Kyusho Jitsu Mindset - Self Development

Martial arts training and Kyusho Jitsu study is a journey of the "self." It is the most selfish of endeavors! Now also as part of learning, self development requires you put your ego aside, admit you don't do not know anything about anything, and open your mind for learning! Without that you will fail, and you will fail at just about every aspect of life too! 

"The only true wisdom is know you know nothing." Socrates

Kyusho Jitsu Mindset - Ethics

Next we must all have a code to live by. Grand Master Joon Rhee was famous for saying that "martial arts without a code of ethics is brutality." And this is another GREAT truth! 

Art Mason's Peaceful Warriors Martial Arts Institute

The Tenets of My Dojo

  • I develop myself physically and mentally based on the martial art spirit.
  • And I will only fight to protect my life and the lives of others.
  • Also, I achieve my fullest potential in developing knowledge honesty and strength.

There cannot be a mindset of "trolling" like we see so often! The Bullshido people make me think of this! I know many martial artists love there work, but why?

Do you really need some group to tell you how to think? And that is what they are trying to do! They are an insult to the intelligence of every martial artist in the world. There mission is to show you how much they "think" they know, and how stupid you are and that YOU need them!

"This is "bull" that is "fake" and we know because this is our opinion!"

Do you see a problem with this alleged way of thinking? I don't need any group of self appointed experts in ANY field in life who think it is their job to ridicule what people do, or tell them what to think!

This is a major reason society is the mess it is! Media like Facebook and CNN telling people what their opinions and thoughts should be! Pathetic really. Whenever I see this kink of behavior I know the company in question lacks "ethics". Facebook is a prime example as now the truth of what they are doing is coming out. Yet they, and CNN are 2 of the best finger pointers in the industry!

In Conclusion

Do you have the Kyusho Jitsu Mindset?

Top 3 Kyusho Principles for Beginners

Top 3 Kyusho Principles for Beginners

Top 3 Kyusho Principles for Beginners

Kyusho Jitsu is a challenging study! You need someone to guide you through the process and actually answer the questions you have. You do not need someone to tell you that you are not ready for something. "If the student can ask the question they are ready for the answer" always holds true! So today let's take a look at the Top 3 Kyusho Principles for Beginners.

Top 3 Kyusho Principles #1

The first Principle I am going to talk about is one that everyone "thinks" they understand! However they rarely ever do! And I have since released a FREE way to learn this principle in a detailed video!  Since then dozen have come to me and said "I had not idea it was so important!" What is this #1 Principle? The Cycle of Destruction!

Top 3 Kyusho Principles

Understanding the Depth of the Cycle of Destruction is "key" to Kyusho Jitsu success!

Watch a FREE video here. This video is about 40 minutes long, and gives you everything you need to know. But 1 of 5 students never finish it! And they wonder why their Kyusho is mediocre.

Follow THIS LINK and get a FREE copy of my Cycle of Destruction Video

This critical principle begins very simply with the memory work. However it expands to become a deeply rooted theory with amazing power! Now some people do not teach any of this any longer. Have you ever wondered why? In my new video RMATC RAW which is the recording of the Romanian Martial Arts Training Camp from this July, I go into great details on this principle of Cycle of Destruction.

Plus I also share some "secrets" which many will not share! Check it out below!

Top 3 Kyusho Principles #2

The second principle of the Top 3 Kyusho Principles is Yin/Yang. This is another very simply looking principle with amazing powers! So what does this idea have to teach us? 

Well contrary to what people like to think opposites do not attract. Why is that? Because they are inseparable to begin with! As an example if you wipe out all the men on the planet, the human race will soon become extinct along with it. And no science will stop this! The same for female! One cannot exist without the other. 

And today once again there are many instructors who no longer teach it! But the big issue is that Kyusho Jitsu is not a plug and play system. The more the student understands, the more questions they ask and get answered, the better they are going to do! At the Romanian Martial Arts Training Camp I taught in detail an important aspect of this Principle of Yin-Yang. That aspect is "female" and "male" energies! It will blow your mind!

Top 3 Kyusho Principles - Yin - Yang

Top 3 Kyusho Principles #3

At the RMATC I taught so much information. The attendees kept saying the same thing. "I love how you hold nothing back!"  Top 3 Kyusho Principles #3 is not a normal principle. Rather it was the theme for the seminar. That is learning, understanding and using angles with Kyusho Jitsu. This is a MAJOR part of what Quantum Kyusho Jitsu is all about!

Top 3 Kyusho Principles

Being able at some point in time to look at Kyusho Jitsu from a mathematical prospective is imperative. And angles allow this! Now this may be being referred to as "Top 3 Kyusho Principles for Beginners" however all principles have foundational roots! The earlier you begin to understand something the better off you are! 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

So tell me, how far down the Kyusho Jitsu Rabbit hole do you want to go?

 Like I have said I teach the "secrets" and "tricks or cheats" to make the science of pressure point self defense EFFECTIVE for all those who sincerely study! 

As you can tell I am promoting the RMATC RAW video! And the reason is that is is an excellent source of information for you! And a NEW low price too!

Plus for he price and the amount of information you cannot go wrong! have you attend any seminars where the Principles of Kyusho Jitsu were taught?

Tell us about the seminar here. And feel free to ask any questions!

Understanding Real World Self Defense

Real World Self Defense

Real World Self Defense

Are you looking for Real World Self Defense? Or do you assume your current level of training is enough? With today's proliferation of martial sport there is a dangerous illusion that has been constructed. And that illusion is that "if you can fight in a ring, or in a bar you are safe from street attacks." But the FACTS are, that this is very far from the truth!

You can be a REAL martial arts expert and master, and I know many, many such people. But their ego believes that somehow what they learned makes the safe. And the body count over the years proves them WRONG. I knew personally one such gentleman who interfered with a robbery and got stabbed for his trouble. Sadly he did not make it. Most of all his ego cost him his life! 

Real World Self Defense vs Sport

I have stated my thoughts on sport and martial arts. I am not a fan, however that is not my point here. In a ring there is a certain mentality. This is one of WINNING and doing so with a certain set of rules. Back in my day competing these rules also included certain values which I no long see today. These men and women are great athletes, but it is always good to know your limitations. 

Real World Self Defense

This image is from UFC 131 in Vancouver BC. This might have been a great fight. I don't know because I don't watch.

However my point in the article is this is NOT what a real attack looks like. Nor does any part of this fight ever resemble a street attack.

What is happening here has a purpose and that is WINNING. On the street it is only SURVIVAL!

Winning is based on fitness levels, therefore performance and the ability to counter attack with the right move at the right time. Also the person who wishes to win the most often does. 

Real World Self Defense - Martial Arts Linage

I am very hard on my own people. There is a very BAD view that somehow or another you are not truly a martial artist unless you have a direct linage to a founder of a style, or a high name master. This is the biggest pile of bullshit I have ever seen in something that does not tie to politics. 

Martial Arts Linage

You cannot live vicariously via your linage! Many of these great master understood what Real World Self Defense means. However it does not mean their students do, or that the teachings still have application today! Students have a tendency to believe that their teachers knew it all! That is a very dangerous thought process!

Tradition is OK, as long as it does not become dogma. There must always be growth otherwise you are doing backwards.

What is Real World Self Defense?

Real World Self Defense is a combination of mentality and movement that provides a path to successfully defending yourself on the streets today, in a real attack. What do I mean by a real attack? When someone wants "something" from you and they intend to commit bodily harm to you up to and including death. That does not happen in a ring!

Knife Attacks

Most knife defense programs as based on the ideas people have seen from Hollywood. Such as someone holding a knife this way and stabbing down.

This is a BIG misconception of how things happen. It is OK to train the idea, but the student needs to know this idea is fantasy!

Many of these criminals have nothing to lose, and there is no one more dangerous than someone with nothing to lose! There are so many misconceptions of really happens in a self defense situation that it is alarming. What is even more alarming is that these misconceptions are being taught as factual! Now I am not saying martial arts teachers should stop teaching the things they do. However I am saying that they need to teach the difference between technique and application.

They also need to make sure that as they evolve their techniques into application that they have done their homework!  Not made assumptions that they are right! 

Real World Self Defense Solutions

Yes there are solutions for this problem! And it is NOT the systems that automatically come to mind! Learning them is great! However you need to develop a solid foundation in real world self defense skills and then integrate it into your current system. Yes this does include the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu. However without a solid base in your root art for self defense Kyusho Jitsu will not be as effective as it could be!

This is where I give you Humane Pressure Point Tactics. This is a 4 level system teaching what really happens on the streets and how to be safe FIRST! It deals with escalation and learning to control any situation. I cover everything from the basics of dealing with a street confrontation to attacks with weapons and gangs. Plus the new Level Four covers the changing world to include mental illness and online stalking. 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Depending on exactly what you are studying in the martial arts it is a good idea to always supplement this knowledge.

Now there is nothing wrong with the study of some of the extreme self defense systems that boast being combat oriented. 

However, applying this knowledge the street under the wrong circumstances will cost you your freedom! Don't believe the "fear no man" and "defeat any attacker" propaganda!

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

The Kyusho Jitsu Down Block mechanically is the very same as any arts down or low block. But there is a a big difference in how it functions compared to the traditional interpretation. 

To the average person seeing the block their thoughts will go to the idea that they are blocking a front kick. Therefore this is what most people think when they hear the term or see the block.  However the Kyusho Jitsu Down Block has a very different interpretation!

Kyusho Jitsu the science of pressure point self defense exists in every martial art. It is an advanced part of all arts. However after WWII in particular the arts began to become watered down for consumption in the west.

Below is the traditional pattern Chon Ji from the International Tae Kwon Do Federation. Basic Kata with several Down or Low Blocks.

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

As you can see this is a nice clean simple beginners pattern. It is very easy to see how someone would assign a down block as being to stop a front kick. The trick is to begin to see other things within the limits of the Kata, then to learn to apply them.  So now let's take a look at a different Kyusho Jitsu Down Block interpretation.

As you can also see when the interpretation is done correctly there is no wasted motion! Now this is only one Kyusho Jitsu Down Block interpretation. 

What is the basis for interpretation?

First you need to understand that Kata is not a performance or a dance. This is a modern day idea used because of how sport oriented the martial arts have become. In their true form Kata is a representation of "battle" with many, most of the techniques within being "DEADLY."

You also need to understand the anatomy of an attack. There are ONLY 3 attacks possible and it is the escalation level that is different. 

Beyond that the weapon used is what changes. These are as follows.

  • 1
    Push - Someone comes up and pushes you.
  • 2
    Grab - The attacker will grab clothing, arms etc to stabilize and intimidate you.
  • 3
    Punch - when the attack comes to blows. The use of a weapon is the same as a punch because "impact" is the intent.

The Kyusho Jitsu Down Block - No Blocks!

The next thing you need to understand is that the word "block" is a BAD interpretation from the language of the root of the martial art trained in. There are NO BLOCKS only strikes. The brain will by reflex block someone come at it.  No training required.

It is instinct to either move out of the way or use the arms to protect. This does not need to be taught. Using a "down block" for a kick is like using a screw driver to change your babies diaper. 

Unless you are targeting something on the leg, like GB-31 as an example.

Here is an example of "bad translations or understanding."

My original Grand Master instructor, Mr Chung Oh was from Korea. While his English was OK, it was not great. In our foundation floor exercises he had an move called. Double Palm Downward Block, done in "back-horse." 

For years this was called "back-horse." It was his accent, he was saying "backwards."

GM Oh was an amazing martial artist and instructor. He passed several years ago now. He is always remembered.

* Grand Master Chung W Oh

But because people do not ask questions, and consider these men to be "Gods" things are taken at face value, and therefore often misunderstood! And the "Double Palm Downward Block" was not a block at all, but a strike to the spine of someone trying to take you to ground, attacking the Associated Alarm Points and Governor Vessel. Done correctly the attacker would NEVER walk again.

Do you see how much has been missed?

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

I do not teach Kata Interpretation, or technique interpretation the way most martial arts instructors do it.  The reason is that just "showing" someone what a movement can translate to or mean does not program the brain to use it. Instead I lead the student to see the meaning themselves!

Are there movement in your martial art or Kata you are wondering about? Leave a comment and I will help to lead you to the see the answer!

Kyusho Pressure Point Seminar

Kyusho Pressure Point Seminar Benefits

Kyusho Pressure Point Seminar

Learning Kyusho Jitsu is almost a calling. Once you begin to see the way things work you want more and more. I know once I attended my first Kyusho Pressure Point Seminar I was hooked. I could not wait for the next opportunity to attend again! But sometimes the seminars are not what they are supposed to be! And that can be an issue.

A Kyusho Pressure Point Seminar should be a learning experience! It should NOT be a venue for an instructor to book his next seminar! Yes we all hope that happens! But it does not happen as a result of putting on a demonstration, it comes from taking curious people and turning them into students!

Over the years I have traveled and taught many seminars. No where near as many as some of the high profile names. But with time I will get there! However the one difference I have heard time and time again is that I "really teach" the stuff! And this is very true! My focus is leaving students with things that can use afterwards. Not just showing them how good I am, but how good they can be!

Benefits of a Kyusho Pressure Point Seminar

Kyusho Pressure Point Seminar

For the school owner, the person hosting the seminar there must be a BIG benefit in doing so! I know one instructor in the USA who hosted a seminar with a very famous martial artists, and out of respect I will not say who as he has passed on, but it cost him students. The reason? A massive ego walking in the door of his Dojo, and a HUGE price tag causing disappointed students. That cannot happen!

The school owner or host is putting money on the line to do this! Yes he or she is looking for some financial gain, and this should happen. The event naturally needs to be well promoted! But when the presenter does the job correctly, giving a real learning experience the host benefits even more! 

Why is that? The excitement caused by the Kyusho Pressure Point Seminar motivates students to come to class and train harder! This was how i build a school in Canada of so many adult Black Belts who stay and don't quit!

Back in 2018 I did a seminar in Brasov Romania called the RMATC or Romanian Martial Art Training Camp.  This was a small intimate group of students from all over the world. Below is an excerpt from that seminar.

A Martial Artist is NOT a Self Defense Expert

Self Defense Expert

Self Defense Expert

I am going to upset a few people today, but a Martial Artist is NOT a Self Defense Expert! In fact most know little to nothing about the topic. They pretend to because they either won a few street fights in their day or some tournaments. Sorry guys, self defense is not the same thing! Now a martial artist can be a self defense expert, but this requires a different type of training and knowledge!

Now I am not saying that these men and women cannot fight, that is an entirely different subject, with almost no relationship between them.

Self Defense Expert - The Fight

I have great respect for fighters. I was an amateur boxer in my youth as well as a full contact and point style TKD fighter. However I discovered one day when I got into a situation I could not handle that there was a big difference between the 2! Yes it did have a lot to with physical skills, but much more of it was mental or psychological than anyone realizes. 

* Right to Self Defense

Sample #1:

You are in a bar with your "significant other" and a problem arises with another person there. Words are exchanged perhaps because you choose to defend the honor of the person you are with. So you take it outside! Depending on whether there are drugs and or alcohol involved the average martial artist will do very well here. But this is a FIGHT. There will be a winner and a loser, because their ego dictates there must be one! And no one is trying to kill the other, at least not in this scenario!

Sample #2

A man is stationed at a military base that comes under attack via ground forces. Without a weapon in his hand he defeats and kills an attacker. This is not self defense, this is combat. In the real world he would likely succeed in most self defense situations. However he will likely end up charged with at least manslaughter and end up with prison time for excessive force. 

There is also a difference in the psychology of the attacker. In a military or combat situation the attacker is expecting a problem with the defender. On the street the attacker has chosen a victim! 

Sample #3

You are walking out of the movies with your wife and child. 2 guys approach you and demand your money. As you are about to comply, becasue you are smart the situation turns violent. You must SURVIVE not win, and protect your wife and child. You were chosen because you appeared to be easy. And with the right kind of training, both mentally and physically you could survive this! But not if you think the championship you won last year, or your knife fight training will help you.

This is a different UNIVERSE and it is not even a parallel one!

A Martial Artist is NOT a Self Defense Expert

Self Defense Experts - The Real Deal

Do I consider myself a self defense expert? That is a yes and no answer. I am still training and researching to discover the truth of our every changing world and the violence issues we face. They are not the same ones we faced 5 years ago even. Therefore while I am adept, I do not like the word expert. 

Can anyone be a self defense expert? It depends on several different things.

  1. Unless you have never been robbed, or attacked on the street it is pretty hard to relate to the situation. You need to have experienced the adrenaline when this happens
  2. You must be trained in a system that focuses on simple and solid movements. It ain't Hollywood and Bruce Lee's movies were pretend. 
  3. You need to research situations with people who have been there. Learn how they did, what they did and how they survived the threat!

This is the beginning, getting on the path to becoming a self defense expert. But the lessons never end.

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Becoming proficient at self defense or becoming an expert is a no ending journey. Situations change constantly and we must develop our skills accordingly!

Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Class

Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Class

A Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Class

I have been asked a few times recently what a "Beginners Kyusho Jitsu  Pressure Point Class" teaching would look like in a Dojo. Hence I do not have an actual video example for you as I have not been in Canada teaching a class in years.

And I have not really pushed it here in Romania locally because of language issues. So let's take a minute and break it down for you!

The class is a lecture style environment, with the students typically seated on the floor. Therefore information is given, and notes are taken by the students during class time. And at various points, depending on which lesson we are at there are training exercises with partners to begin the application segment. Therefore it is a rather structured atmosphere.

And the class typically the runs 2.5 to 3 hours. Which are conducted monthly. Everything and I mean everything is systematized to give the best possible environment! Questions and answers are taken at different points in the presentation. After the first class, every class then includes an hour of review. The information is complex and must be memorized to be effective! Most of all the class needs to move at a slow and steady pace to assure student comprehension.

Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Class - Video

Below is a video of a sample lesson in in what a Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Class for beginners would look like.

This was recorded last winter with several Kyusho Jitsu University Gold Members online watching. And due to me not wishing to deal with privacy laws you do not see them. or know who there are.


Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

In conclusion to sum things up success learning the science of pressure point self defense comes because of proper teaching structure.

Hence feeding the new student the correct information in the correct order for easy assimilation! This is what makes a Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point class for beginning work!

And you also need some reference material to help you teaching classes like these! Here are 2 that you will find totally invaluable for you!

Learn about Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes

Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes

Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes

What is Kyusho Jitsu and it is simply just nerve strikes? The science of pressure point self defense is complex, so if it is really just nerve strikes then why is it not simple? The reasons are many and I will go into some of them right now.  

Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes & Striking Action

The first part of this story is to talk about Striking Action. Just hitting something hard does not always yield the desired results! If hitting hard was the "final" answer then boxing matches and MMA fights would be over in seconds. But they last a very long time! The real object is to hit correctly! 

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

This requires some special training and understanding the principles of power vs force! They are not the same thing! Here is an article that will shed some light onto this subject or learning to strike correctly!

Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes - What is a Pressure Point?

Next we need to look at exactly what a pressure point is, and how it relates to the nervous system. Please read the working of this carefully and ask questions if I am not clear. 

A pressure point is not some kind of mystical/magical location on the body. It is a place found in what are referred to a meridians or energy channels. These channels are not hardwired places or things like nerves are. They are energy pathways that result due to "inductance" because of electrical flow within the nerves themselves. Much like a transformer. 

Now a pressure point occurs on these channels at places near/where a nerve comes to an end. Where a nerve branches off like in a "Y" form, or where nerves cross or run over top of each other. These is the best description of a pressure point possible. I hope you can see the relationship here between the area [pressure point] and the nerve location.

With all of this being said when you strike a pressure point, if you do so correctly you will affect the energy flow in the meridian, which because of the Laws of Induction causes a reaction in the flow of electricity in the nerve itself. This causes a predictable result depending on the pressure point activated and the functions of the nerves and therefore the meridians also. 

Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes - Pressure Point Locations

Part of this equation, and a BIG reason Kyusho Jitsu can be referred to as nerve striking is because of the physical location of the pressure points themselves. 

So lets take a look at 2 of the most effective pressure points with relation to their locations and therefore why they work so effectively! 

Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes

Gall Bladder 20

The first pressure point we will look at is Gall Bladder 20. Because of its proximity and relationship to the fact it lies on the Greater Occipital Nerve is why this point is so effective. The point itself lies in the indentation at the base of the skull.

This nerve has a relation and control over the muscles in the back of the neck and skull that associate with the integrity of the skull to the spine. Striking in and up towards the other side of the head, using Two Way Action will cause the nerve to report potential serious damage to the brain and therefore cause a knockout. 

Here is a link to an in-depth study of Neurological Knockouts

Spleen 11

Now in this image to the right you can see the pressure point Spleen 11. This pressure point lies on the femoral nerve. Striking this pressure point straight across like an arrow, using Two Way Action compresses the nerve against the bone, which causes great pain! Now this nerve also protect the femoral artery, which if ruptured, which is possible in a leg break, will result in death from internal bleed out. 

So striking this pressure point correctly can also result in a knockout. As well as with sufficient power break the femur.

Femoral Nerve
Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes -Spleen Meridian

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

This should help give you an understanding of why Kyusho Jitsu is really about striking nerves, but also why it becomes more complicated that just saying "nerve strikes."

When you use the principles of Kyusho Jitsu you will increase the effectiveness of the strikes because you will be hitting the correct way, for the correct area! 

And the results are well worth the effort!

Understanding Self Defense Escalation Levels

Self Defense Escalation

Self Defense Escalation Levels

It still surprised me today how many martial artists do not understand what self defense actually is. For some reason many glorify it in to some kind of epic combat or great battle. All the while saying they understand the difference between "sport" and "street." You see this most often in the form of bad questions and answers as to which art is superior for street defense. They do not know or understand Self Defense Escalation Levels.  Self Defense does NOT occur when 2 or more people agree to fight.

Understanding Self Defense Escalation Levels is critical for success on today's streets. Every day the streets become more intense, and more dangerous as more and more people become upset with the current status of their existence. From dissension to mental illnesses there is a lot going on today.

This is the reason I have updated and released our 4 Level Certification Courses called Humane Pressure Point Tactics.

Mass Hysteria

Update March 15th 2020. Today we face a problem. And the problem is NOT Covid-19 killing us all. The problem is the mass panic / hysteria created by today's media for self serving interests. This is one reason the deescalation teaching of Humane Pressure Point Tactics are so critical! At the very least enroll in Level One and Level Two and learn how to see the signs of trouble, and the things you can do to calm bad situations before they escalate to violence. On our current path people will die fighting over toilet paper. BE VIGILANT! ACT NOW!

Self Defense Escalation - Eye Contact

Eye contact is an important beginning to see what is happening in a conflict. You can see from the potential attackers eyes a lot about his mental condition. As an example you can tell quickly if the person is stoned, drunk, confused or angry. This information helps you assess how much potential trouble you are in.

Plus your eyes will reveal at lot about you. You must make eye contact but do not stare. The attacker can also interpret a lot of information from you also. Especially nervousness and fear levels.  Training to remain calm is important!

And never stare, look and glance away like you are thinking about the situation and you should be.  Assessing the situation is critical to survival if and when things go bad. 

Self Defense Escalation - Low Level

* All Inclusive Self Defense

Seeing the warning signs of coming violence is a life saver! These skills will not just protect you but also anyone else in the area!

The first level of Self Defense Escalation we look at is the low level. This is the interview or prelude to violence. And this will occur 95% of the time. Being blind sided does happen, however it is not as common as most people think it is. Violence is a very psychological event, and the need for the attacker to dominate and scare is part of this picture.  This model applies to from simple assault all the way to the horrific mass shootings.

Low Self Defense Escalation requires a certain skill set, which includes a physical element. You need to learn and possess certain verbal skills, as well as physical skills to preemptively hand bad situations. That is what HPPT Level One is all about!


Self Defense Escalation - Medium Level

Now the term medium level may confuse you a little bit, so let me explain. At the Self Defense Escalation Medium Level the situation has now escalated to violence with the first punch or gab having happened. Once at this point the negotiations have ended and the physical threat must be met with "reasonable force."

However no threat of the taking of life has been made, no weapon introduced or suspected.

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

This is the level that most martial artists wrongly feel comfortable in. However many many times the martial artist overestimate their own skills or underestimate the attacker. Medium Level can go to High Level in heart beat and therefore there is much to consider! And many martial artists get in trouble here for "excessive force" as well! 

This level of Self Defense Escalation also requires verbal skills as well as physical skills. Humane Pressure Point Tactics Level Two Certification is designed for this particular level of Self Defense Escalation.


13 Misconceptions about Knife Attacks

Self Defense Escalation - High Level

This is the "oh shit" moment when you realize that:

a) Your attacker is not alone.

b) That your attacker has a weapon

Both of these High Level Self Defense Escalation points are seriously life changing and life threatening! At this point the only thing that matters is getting out of the situation with your life still intact! There is no win or lose here, there is only survival! Plus there needs to be an understanding that a lot has gone wrong for you to be at this point! 

Escape from this situation requires very special skills and a very special mindset! All of the "self defense vs weapon" dreams do not apply here! That is fantasy! This is reality! One such example is the countless misconceptions of what happens in a knife attack, or the believe that somehow you will disarm the attacker and save the day!

No you need the skills to get out and get out fast! You also need to understand why you are still alive and how to proceed from that point!  Humane Pressure Point Tactics Level Three Certification is to give you these skills, skills to understand, and deal with a life threatening situation. 


* HPPT Self Defense Psychology

NEW H.P.P.T Level Four!

This all new level  is dealing with a problem that is growing on a day to day basis.

That is the epidemic of sever mental illness we are facing today due to the extreme views people have that often turn violent! 

Also covered will be special training and understanding of deescalation.

And as a bonus this level of Humane Pressure Point Tactics will also address Online Security and Privacy which is directly linked to the "bullying" issues young and old fact today! Learn more below!

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat [Self Defense]

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat

I will tell you from the beginning I am not a fan of the term "combat" when it comes to self defense. It in my mind can be somewhat misleading. The majority of people who will read this post are not military men and women. They are civilians like me. What is the difference? Combat is a different mindset. Self Defense another. But, for the sake of the way people view things, lets talk today to see if there are Kyusho Close Quarters Combat solutions.

For the get-go I will state emphatically YES, there are Kyusho Close Quarters Combat Solution. We also have to remember that in the science of pressure point self defense, Kyusho Jitsu is implemented into a martial art style or system to enhance it! So depending on the style you train in, will come the direct techniques to handle close quarters fighting. 

Now my root art is Hapkido, and so there is a lot of in close techniques we have for use in these kinds of situations. But today I am going to address a question I saw on Quora about Kyusho Close Quarters Combat. The question is "Which fighting style is best in enclosed spaces such as in buses or planes?"

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat

My own personal experience teaching this comes from a law in Ontario which greatly restricts the right of self defense to "public servants." People in this category are teachers, firemen, civil servants, ambulance paramedics etc,etc.  In their great lack of knowledge, understanding and common sense and because of a fear of "law suites" the government of the province implemented a course called "non violence crisis intervention." 

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat

A patient turning violent inside an ambulance is one of the most dangerous situations a medic can face. They deal with many different potentially dangerous situations such as drug abuse and serious mental disorders. Are you in a similar job?

Humane Pressure Point Tactics offers real solutions!

Not only is this non violent crisis intervention total garbage, but it is dangerous to the defender! Yes I have seen the course! But someone, someday will get killed because of it! I can certainly understand the idea of reasonable force, but this is ridiculous! 

I was because of the program asked to teach a class of people who were in school to become paramedics. Now there is a "hole" in the law because when the patient is in the ambulance and turns violent the government regulation no longer applies! Therefore I was able to teach them "real" Kyusho Close Quarters Combat techniques to defend themselves.

This leads to the question, "what did I teach?" I taught them the Level One and Two Humane Pressure Point Tactics [H.P.P.T]

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Read the information below! Realize that self defense is not the package being sold to you in many instances today.

You need a solid root art systems and then other information and training to enhance your knowledge!

Must have information for today's streets!


Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Kyusho Jitsu does not teach techniques. It does reference them, and demonstrate using them, however it assumes martial arts training. HPPT is different. This is a from the ground up training to handle the 3 main types or escalations of attacks. 

What are the "escalation" points I am referring to?

  1. Before a physical attack! Handling and hopefully deescalating a bad situation or disruptive person before things go bad. This includes preemptive measure to control the situation. All while remaining within the laws of self defense
  2. Dealing with thee situation once the attack as begun. This includes a grab or a punch. Close quarter self defense is naturally a part of this.
  3. High end self defense. This is when a weapon has been seen or introduced. I also teach skills to effectively deal with multiple attackers.

Back in 2010 I certified in all 3 Levels of Grand Master Steve Stewart's HPPT Courses. It is an amazing courses. However I have updated the information I have learn to deal with the ever changing situations of today's streets!
