Aging Martial Artists

* Kyusho Jitsu Winter Season

Often times aging Martial Artists are not a pretty thing to see. Many put on vast amounts of weight, and are then ridiculed for it, which is funny because it is often the kettle calling the pot black. The harder you trained, often the more sever the issues later.  Injuries catch up with you, for most arthritis sets in.  Physically we change, but in our hearts we remain young. This in Kyusho Jitsu is part of the seasons of life

Growing Old with Grace

This is what we all hope, to grow old and have a little grace with it. Maybe some wisdom. Wisdom will tell you that it is perhaps time to control the ego, relax and enjoy life. I know that is what I have done here moving to East Europe. I am not taking it “easy” but I have made life simpler.

Today the face of martial arts is very different. Sport is now the BIG fad, and yes it is a fad. The fad will last, but personally I see little to no value in it. But hey that is just me, does not mean I am right or I am wrong. However, what concerns me is the attitude of some, that they will never age, or have the concerns that we have.  I am not expecting to see much wisdom from this generation.

What exactly do I mean? People today, martial artists today do not see the long term consequences or karma of their actions.

Youth and Consequences of Actions

Are you aware that there is a part of the human brain that does not stop its development until the age of 21 on average? This is the part that understands the consequences of actions. This is why so many teenagers smoke, take drugs, have unprotected sex, drive to fast, and live life on the edge.

Today I think perhaps for some the brain never matures. However, there comes a time when you need to understand the body, and protect it and your loved ones. Self Defense becomes the focus, not winning a trophy.

Aging Martial Artists -  in Walks Kyusho Jitsu

The art and science of pressure point self defense helps to take the focus off a fitness level that cannot be maintained as we grow older. And honestly who would want too?

Kyusho Jitsu will help to compensate for injury and illness to the body by teaching you to be more effective in self defense, and not egotistical about it.

Kyusho Jitsu is a game changer, but it must be studied in earnest to be effective.  But then everything does have a price! That price is dedication. To my way of thinking while Kyusho Jitsu should be for everyone, it is really a calling for most.

And for aging martial artists, it is critical knowledge with far more benefits than the work that must be put into it. And learning can also help to prevent the onset of different mental problems like memory loss.

In Conclusion

Aging Martial Artists CONCLUSION

Today it is hard to get people to look past the current day. People worry about things that cannot change and do not take action on the things they can change.

Keeping your years of martial arts training effective is one you can change. Are you will to take the first step? Follow this link if you are!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips [Kyusho]

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Today I want to give you the Top 5 Self Defense Tips with a Kyusho Jitsu flare to them. Now this is not today about techniques, but most of all being safe on today very unpredictable streets. 

Much of what is taught is unfortunately not very effective. It can be complicated to learn and some is just dangerous! But there are real solutions! 

So keep reading to discover them!

* Top 5 Self Defense Tips [Kyusho]


These commonly taught techniques pictured here are not effective!

Here is the list now of the Top 5 self defense tips all based on common sense.

Top 5 Self Defense Tips #1

Know you surroundings! I know this sounds like real common sense but you cannot image the number of people who have no clue! Now I live in a country with a VERY low violent crime rate. Currently, but that can change very quickly! Therefore be prepared always!


Here is a classic example of what NOT to do! It is only a purse, let it go and bring the police into the matter!

Always be safe!

* Top 5 Self Defense Tips [Kyusho]

Today you see people walking down the street, faces buried into their cell phone with no clue what is going on around them.  This gives the signal to ANY predator that says "ATTACK ME."

Put away the cell phone! Facebook, Twitter and Messenger are NOT emergencies! Don't make yourself a victim! I leave my cellphone in my pocket!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips #2

Notice I did not say "leave your cellphone home?" A cellphone when used properly is the greatest self defense "tool" in the world! Why? No not so you can hit the attacker with it! But so when something is wrong you can call the POLICE!

Every cellphone has a GPS tracking device in it that can help the police local exactly where you are! These work better then you realize! 

Here is a listing of common emergency phone numbers world wide. But check your area for the correct number! Have the number on speed dial is best because during an emergency you may not be able to dial very well! Even if you are experienced in self defense do this anyways! 

Most of all safety first! Ego LAST!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips #3

Seasoned self defense people and martial artist know this! However on the weekend I read a self defense article on WikiHow that was simply WRONG! 

Self Defense for Knife Attacks


It was about knife defense, which is hands down the most "dangerous" situation the average person will ever face! They told the readers to yell "HELP!"

Read there about the 13 Misconceptions about Knife Attacks.

Yeah NEVER well "HELP" unless there is a Police Officer within visual range!  Why? Because NO ONE will come! People today do NOT want to be involved and yelling help is rolling the dice!

Instead yell "FIRE!!!"

And the reason? People love to watch things burn! This will catch the attention of anyone in the area and human nature says they will come and see what is going on! Understanding the psychology of how people think is a wonderful thing!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips #4

Find a BUSY place to flee to! Do not go down dark alleys and deserted streets to get away. Try to find a place with lots of people! The odds are this will discourage the attacker and make him move on! 

Therefore this is why awareness of your surroundings is so important! Know where you are at all times! I talk constantly with my Kyusho Jitsu Students about the value of knowing where NORTH is. Make knowing you surrounds a part of everything you do! 

If you are in your car and think you may be followed do not go home! Drive once again somewhere well populated and use tip #2! Call the Police, always call the Police! It is there JOB!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips #5

Real World Self Defense

Get some self defense training! Now this is where I hear all the MMA guys going, "I am a trained fighter, I don't need this!" Yeah, no YES you DO!

Today most martial arts are sport oriented which is fine, but KNOW your limitations! Winning a battle in a ring, every at the high level is not the same thing! In a ring your opponent wants to WIN! On the street the attacker wants to KILL YOU!!

There is a BIG DIFFERENCE!

Now I hear many fighters talk about the guy they dropped on Friday night downtown. Yeah that is a FIGHT. When you have an argument with some guy who called your wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/significant other names and fisticuffs begin, that is a FIGHT.

This is 2 idiots who have giant egos who like to prove their worth. Have fun, that is NOT SELF DEFENSE! Enjoy the assault charges!

Now as for some serious self defense training I do have a solution for you! 

In Conclusion

Top 5 Self Defense Tips Conclusion

It is never the things you know that get you into trouble. It is the things you "think" you know but do not that do! 

As an example a martial artist as talented  are not by default "Self Defense experts!"

This is a very common misconception!

You need to also know the LAWS as it pertains to Self Defense. Things are far more complicated than they used to be! If you have any comments or questions please ask here.

Kyusho Power Vs Force

Shares

Kyusho Power Vs Force

* Kyusho Power Vs Force

What do I mean by Kyusho Power Vs Force? And how does this apply to Kyusho Jitsu? Today in the martial arts world training has taken on a different meaning. Conditioning has become paramount, skill in my opinion is on the decline.

Sport martial art has take over, with an obsession on battle, winning, and developing a killer body to do it! The problem is human nature when we are young makes us believe we are invincible. So all this goes on without a single thought of the end result.

If you want to see the end result you need to look no further then the body count in professional wrestling. MMA and sport martial arts will be there in a few more years. The body won't take it forever.

Kyusho Power Vs Force - Injuries HAPPEN

When you push the body hard non stop you are not creating power, you are instead forcing a result. There is a BIG difference! FORCE cannot be maintained, power, real power can be! When I was younger I training hard 2-3 hours per night, 6 days per week. Today my hips are shot, my knees are bad. Pain becomes a fact of life. Now there is nothing wrong with training hard. But "excessive" has a BIG price! And the massive addiction to pain killers is a big sight something is very WRONG.

I knew One Day i would get old

You know I knew I would one day get old. But I did not think it would happen so fast!

I am so VERY THANKFUL I met Steve Stewart in 2001. Why? Because Kyusho Jitsu is a game changer when it comes to the CLOCK of life.

The great equalizer for growing old, injuries and training changes due to the preceding. 

With Steve Stewart. George Dillman and Louise St Jacques

He taught me how to develop POWER my using natural body mechanics, angles, pressure points and in the end wisdom. Therefore allowing me to improve with age, not regress like most people do. The seasons of life can not be avoided! But the effectiveness of your martial art can grow better with age like fine wine and whiskey. 

The things Bruce Lee Taught

I find the life of Bruce Lee to be in many ways an inspiration to the martial arts. He showed size did not matter, that the style did not matter.  Yet somehow in the modern world those words are lost. I guess that is true of any prophetic person like Lee.

Bruce Lee understood the value of pressure point study and training. This is why he pushed George Dillman to pursue it. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Power Vs Force CONCLUSION

When you are finished beating on the heavy bad, kick target pads, dieting using hopefully not, but possibly using dangerous drugs to improve your performance remember, then an education in the science of pressure point self defense awaits you.

Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Intent

Shares

Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Intent

* Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Intent

What is Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Intent? First before I jump into this let me just say that the Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project is a revolutionary way of looking at the study of the science of pressure point self defense. If you want to read more about the Quantum Kyusho Project you can read my article here

Now let's take a look at INTENT, which is one of the most important ideals or concepts in Kyusho Jitsu. The truth is if you do not have intent, or if you cannot see the result you are looking to achieve before it happens, then it will not happen.

Most failed Neurological Knockouts are because of lack of INTENT. The student wants the outcome, but does not see it happening before it does. Therefore he or she fails. Success comes when the student see the outcome first! And the more vividly you see the outcome in your mind the better will be the result!

Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Intent - Quantum Law

One of the laws of Quantum Physics or Quantum Mechanics understand that nothing is actually "solid." And that the state of an object depends on whether there is an observer there to see it. Or in other words an object is only solid [exists] if there is someone there to see it. Otherwise rather then being "particles" the object then exists as waves of probability. 

A great example of this is "Schrödinger's cat." This was a though experiment in Quantum Physics on the state of a cat in a box. It makes a great read. 

So in Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Intent the same basic question is posed. Does a pressure point have any specific value or function in of itself, or is the action behind the result solely responsible for function and therefore the outcome?

Anyone who has trained in Kyusho Jitsu knows that pressure points work! Just as anyone who has receive acupuncture from a qualified doctors knows how amazing the result can be. But it does pose an important question or two.

The video below will help you understand the basics of intent

In Conclusion

Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Intent CONCLUSION

The first question how important is the intent of the student attacking pressure points. Is this really the reason for any and all outcomes.

And how important is the view or observation of the Uki in this equation?

What do you think? Tell me here.

Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

Shares

Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

* Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

What am I referring to when I say Pressure Points Inguinal Crease? The Inguinal Crease is the crease between the torso and the thigh. It creates a 'V' shape in the direction of the groin.

For the Kyusho Jitsu student this is important because of the intersection of 2 very dangerous pressure points that make striking the area very beneficial in self defense especially when it comes to a larger opponent. So let really get into the Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

Here we are dealing with 2 pressure points that for lack of better words lie right over top of each other.  This is a "natural" Cycle of Destruction area and therefore a strike will always yield a substantial result. 

Pressure Point SP-12

Pressure Point SP-12 is the first of the 2 pressure points we will examine in the Pressure Point Inguinal Crease.

This pressure point is situated right over the femoral artery and can cause great internal damage to this artery.

It is also near the femoral nerve and will cause the whole leg to be paralyzed. 

The best strike to the area is in and down using a penetrating action.

A strong kick to this region can also knock the head of the femur and ball joint right out of its socket damaging the tendons and ligaments causing great pain and immobilization. 

*Deadly Pressure Point SP-12

There is also a potential for death if the femoral artery is damaged at this point. 

Pressure Point LV-12

The second is Pressure Point LV-12. This pressure point has a strong affect upon the genitals and when one is struck here, it feels like a strike to the groin and is as effective as a groin strike.

However it is easier to get to than the groin because the brain will not protect this area automatically.

Struck hard enough, this pressure point can kill due to the proximity of the femoral artery.

 A light to medium shot will cause the genitals to bleed. Internal physical damage is caused to the tendons and muscles at this area.

Damage to the artery can cause death.

The Pressure Point Liver 14
* Pressure Points Inguinal Crease

It is also know to cause serious prostrate swelling in men and permanent reproductive issues in women.

The angle and direction is the same as above, however you should chop the area.

Being that you cannot hit one pressure point without the other I suggest using the penetrating striking action as it is easier to perform in this area.

 How to Attack

This is one of the areas of the body people often ask how best to attack. First it is a strike for a large size difference. And if you train in any tradition Karate you already have the best movement to attack. That is the beginning of most Kata and something I refer to ask the "ready" stance. Drop into the horse stance and fire.  This is a great response to being grabbed, again my a larger attacker. 

The best tool is the index finger knuckle as the "eye of the phoenix." This is for taller attackers. The same movement on someone of your own size would work best at Alarm Point ST-25.

In Conclusion

Pressure Points Inguinal Crease CONCLUSION

This is an interesting area of the body to deal with. Highly dangerous due to the proximity of the femoral artery and nerve.  

Attacking is not as complex as it may sound. However I do suggest this is one area of the body est struck with both and simultaneously.

And be very cautious when training with a partner. A hard strike will be devastating!

If you have any questions about these pressure points or attacking, implementing them into your self defense system feel free to leave a comment and ask! If you would like to learn more about these and other pressure points on the body please checkout my book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.

Stacking Pressure Point Principles

Shares

Stacking Pressure Point Principles

* Stacking Pressure Point Principles

What do I mean when I am referring to Stacking Pressure Point Principles? Today I will go into great details on this important part of the path of learning the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu.

Stacking Pressure Point Principles - Starting Out

At the novice level of student in Kyusho Jitsu you are given the first 5 principles. Below is a short video I want you to watch to get you started, then I can breakdown things for you further.

The video is pretty basic.  In the video I discuss stacking the Cycle of Destruction with the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle. This is not really where I would suggest starting if you are a beginner to Kyusho Jitsu. If you are more advanced then definitely play with this one.

Stacking for Beginners:

One of the best places I think to begin to understand stacking is taking the Cycle of Destruction and using it with Attack with Yin - Yang. When you develop the basic idea behind this then you could add Proper Body Mechanics to this.

The difference you will see in effect can be profound, and this is an excellent training method.

Advanced Stacking

As you progress doing this you can then add more advanced principles. As the video shows using the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle.  This example would also go great if sound was adding the striking process. 

This idea is very straight forward but it does require you to have a solid knowledge of the basics. The better the foundation the easier all this is to accomplish.

Stacking Elements

The final aspect of this I will discuss today is stacking elements. While this is not exactly the same as Stacking Pressure Point Principles it is still as important. Rather then go into painful details here I will leave you with this video from my son Master Curt Mason explaining the stacking the fire element. 

Curt Mason is one of the most talented men I have know in Kyusho Jitsu and I do not say this because he is my son. Currently he is not longer teaching.

In Conclusion

Stacking Pressure Point Principles CONCLUSION

There is so much to learn in the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu I cannot even really list it all. 

If you are new to all this then please checkout our FREE Kyusho Jitsu Courses to get you started!

If you have any questions please leave a comment here. I am always thrilled to get questions!

Kyusho One Inch Punch

Shares

Kyusho One Inch Punch [Bruce Lee]

* Kyusho One Inch Punch

One of the great martial arts demonstration is Bruce Lee’s One Inch Punch.  It was never intended as a combat or self defense move, just to show that size did not matter when it came to power.  The funny thing is, the man who asked George Dillman to investigate pressure points, used some of the pressure point principles in what we can also refer to as the Kyusho One Inch Punch.

Now the haters are going to scream foul, but this is what they do best. So upset them more I will and as always just ignore them! 

Kyusho One Inch Punch

Bruce spent a long time perfecting this technique. He actually had a machine he devised to help build up wrist strength to do this! But, a novice Kyusho practitioner with a little training can also get a GREAT result! How does it work? 

Bruce has a very big style to the demonstration which is cool, but he is actually using a striking action with this technique called grasping. This type of striking action is used against the water element. Now Bruce also strikes to the center-line of the body, which is also best attacked with a grasping striking action.  So do this with your Uki, grasping and striking in a downward  motion with 2 Way Action​​​ and you will get a result the first time out!

Below is a video from many years ago I had forgotten about talking and show how Kyusho Jitsu and the Principles of Kyusho Jitsu are linked to the One Inch Punch

Now I mean absolutely no disrespect to Bruce Lee and his art, or those who train in this system today. However Bruce had a way of seeing things in other arts and then incorporating them into what he did if he saw value.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Now I question when Bruce began to demonstrate the Bruce Lee One Inch Punch, or as I refer to it the Kyusho One Inch Punch if he had combat in mind.

However I can see a great application for this in a closed quarters situation and therefore believe that to pursue this knowledge more is essential and worthwhile.

Do you have any experience with the One Inch Punch? Please leave a comment and let me know.

Kyusho Head Pressure Points

Shares

Kyusho Head Pressure Points

* Deadly Pressure Point TW-18

Lets spend a few minutes today and talk about Kyusho Head Pressure Points. Also known as pressure points of the head. In self defense it is often the most desirable to target the head. The head will naturally give a good result since it does house the brain.  So lets take a look at the best pressure points to strike!

Depending on the result you are looking for some pressure points work better then others. It also naturally depends on the situation and what is the most directly available. Here is a look at the primary ones for a strong pressure point brain dysfunction to occur.

Kyusho Head Pressure Points Top 6

Now this is just a small list of the many, many excellent pressure point target on the head. For a complete list of over pressure point on the body have a look at Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy

Gall Bladder Cluster

5 of the 6 pressure points of the head listed about have link to articles about them.

I strongly suggest read each of the articles as they provide a lot of essential insformtion on those pressure points. 

However now I will give some details on the Gall Bladder Cluster. The Gall Bladder Cluster is pressure points GB-13, GB-14 and GB-15. 

Pressure Point GB-20

Also note that they form a triangle on the forehead.  These are excellent pressure points to strike in a self defense situation. While it is likely at a heel palm will connect with all 3 pressure points you will however get an excellent result contacting only one. All these 3 will cause brain dysfunctions like dizziness and disorientation. Unconsciousness is also very possible.

Bonus Kyusho Head Pressure Point

Below is a bonus pressure point of the head called the "mental nerve." This is about a 2 minute video I am sure you will enjoy!

Kyusho Head Pressure Points Conclusion

In Conclusion

Whenever you train with Kyusho Head Pressure Points always be aware that all of them are potentially dangerous.

You can never know the results of a strike to any part of the head and some areas are more sensitive than others. Be cautious not to cause a concussion to your training partner.

In self defense striking pressure point of the head is the best way to quickly end an attack. I would also like to give honorable mention to Pressure Point BL-10 as well. The article is linked. If you have any questions or comment please click here

Kyusho Fight-Flight Reflex

* Kyusho Fight-Flight Reflex

Understanding the Kyusho Fight-Flight Reflex is a "master key" to teaching and accomplishing successful self defense. But from what I have seen in the industry only a hand full of teachers actually understand it. Below is a definition.

Fight or Flight Reflex"The fight-or-flight response is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival."

Now pretty much everyone understands this on an intellectual level. The issue is people do NOT understand it on an application level.

Application of Kyusho Fight-Flight Reflex requires some specific training. Some people have "natural" control when it comes to this, I was lucky to have been one of these people. But this is a psychological occurrence and not related to normal martial arts training like some think. I will also say this categorically, this response has nothing to do with ring fighting, or sport. You DO NOT experience the Fight or Flight Reflect in a ring. Your life is not in danger! 

Kyusho Fight-Flight Reflect - Training it

When this reflex kicks in one of two things are going to happen. You will freeze like a deer in the headlights, or your will fight back (or run).

This is a massive dump of adrenaline to the systems, chancing blood flow, heart rate, breathing rate and many other physiological occurrences.

Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Self Defense

You can train this in a martial arts setting by slowing ramping up "stress training." My favorite methods were to simulate an attack in the dark. This was also a student favorite. And doing multiple attacks. There is a right and wrong way to do it too. Most do it wrong.

What martial arts teacher often don't get is that the students response is looked at first. And also what is their reaction like? What steps need to be taken to help them with fear? 

This is a  step by step process!

Next we need to look at the tools required, once the student can deal with the response of the nervous system, required to end the conflict FAST! The very best scenario is to be able to end the attack in no more than 3 strikes, preferably one!

Before i go on I will point out that everything happening here is due to a neurological response. So why would you not learn to take advantage of that? [Nerve Strikes]

Recently I was at a seminar with a Hapkido presenter, a very well respected man and rightfully so. What he was teaching as street caused me concern because it seemed to be the wrong level of escalation.

If you put someone in an arm bar who is trying to kill you what will you do next? What will you do if his buddy is near by and is going to cut your throat?  Self Defense is not 1 dimensional. You are also not going to press a point and finish the fight. The misconceptions about Kyusho Jitsu - Pressure Point training and usage are vast!

You need to strike the correct place, the correct way and fortunately there are MANY such places on the body. Your root art training should be able to get you there! If not you need a new system.

And since there are pressure points on the body that will yield an excellent result with a single strike then why would you not train for these? Here is a short list of one hit pressure points to train with.

One Hit Knockout Pressure Points

  • Pressure Point ST-05
  • Gall Bladder 20
  • Pressure Point LI-18
Kyusho Fight-Flight Reflex CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

When it comes to conquering the Kyusho Fight-Flight Reflex it is a complex subject.

 Some people like myself need to do no work.  Since I was a child my response to crisis as always been with calm. 

For others it requires learning to be braver in bad situations. And this becomes the job of the teacher. Martial Arts - self Defense training is highly psychological. Where do you fall into the spectrum of control of the Fight or Flight reflex? Please comment here.

Pressure Point Brain Dysfunction

Pressure Point Brain Dysfunction

* Pressure Point Brain Dysfunction

Pressure Point Knockouts are a controversial subject, but they should not be controversial at all. The issue is that they have been poorly explained over the years, and this is why the controversy.  So today I will explain exactly what we are dealing with. I call this Pressure Point Brain Dysfunction because it is the use of pressure points to cause a  brain dysfunction

Pressure Point Brain Dysfunction - Brain Dysfunction

First let me explain the term brain dysfunction. A brain dysfunction is anytime the brain stops reacting to the world in a "normal" manner. This can be caused by many different things. It can be a minor problem or something very serious like a brain tumor. Mental disorders are also brain dysfunctions.

Drinking alcohol, smoking pot or using any kind of drug causes a brain dysfunction to one degree or another. Pain killers as an example interfere with the pain receptors in the body, blocking pain. This is also a dysfunction to some degree. 

When we strike a pressure point we are looking to by disrupting the flow of electricity at a nerve to cause a dysfunction or for the purpose of the article a pressure point brain dysfunction. This can be anything from pain to unconsciousness.

Pressure Point Knockouts

* Pressure Point Brain Dysfunction

What people see when they watch a pressure point knockout is not what they are expecting. They get an image in their minds like that of a boxing or MMA fight in which one of the combatants is completely unconscious. 

Now despite the rather barbaric enjoyment of the fans this is always a highly dangerous situation. These kinds of knockouts while neurological and certainly a brain dysfunction are also linked in with brain damage and/or concussion. And this can be deadly! This is why caution must also be used with Kyusho Jitsu knockouts as they can be very dangerous.

When training to do neurological pressure point knockout we must be very cautious of the health of our Uki or training partner. No one needs a concussion! Therefore we are looking for signs of brain dysfunction to judge our results. This can be dizziness, loss of balance, speech slurring, dilated pupils and the list goes on and on. 

Sometimes if the pressure point has been activated correctly we will get complete unconsciousness. Most of the time this is achieved by those who have trained the longest in Kyusho Jitsu and have the most refined knowledge.

Pressure Point Brain Dysfunction - What happens

When you strike a pressure point, and what is a pressure points,[?]"A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve ends or terminates, where it branches off like in a "Y" formation or crosses another nerve," it will cause a compression of the nerve which results in great pain. Or in the case of certain pressure points an over loading and reaction from the central nervous system and/or brain dysfunction.

And with 361 plus pressure points on the body, [see Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy] there is a lot of opportunity for attack. However there is opportunity only for those who sincerely do the work and study!

In Conclusion

Pressure Point Brain Dysfunction  CONCLUSION

I hope this article helps you to get a better understanding of what neurological pressure point knockouts are about.

As an example in a "bad situation" I target GB-20 with a strike and cause the attacker to drop to his knees dizzy,  I have the time I need to escape the bad situation as he or she recovers from the strike.

One of the things to always remember also is self defense is complicated. it is not a fight like 2 idiots in a bar. And it is NOT COMBAT. By definition combat is WAR, and that is kill or be killed mentality!

Self Defense is about survival, which is the only victory! Check out our Humane Pressure Point Tactics Courses if you have an extra moment. I am sure you will find the information interesting. Plus get a free video lesson too!
