Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

Self Defense is Under Attack

Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

Do you know how Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels integrate together? From the things I see posted, and a lot of the video I see there seems to be some confusion on this topic. 

Today I see a lot of "Combat" websites, videos and posts. Many of these done by younger people, often times trying to make a name for themselves. Nothing wrong with that I suppose. However if you are experiencing the need for "combat" training and you are a citizen, not police or military, you are doing something VERY wrong!

The addition of the science of pressure point self defense into these systems would dramatically improve the success rate. But again if you are confronted by a knife on a regular basis, it is time to rethink your life.

Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

You can breakdown Threat Levels for the average person fairly accurately. And in my opinion the need for real, solid self defense solutions are needed more than ever!

But first let's define self defense. 

Self-Defense

The protection of one's person or property against some injury attempted by another. This is a legal definition and here is a link for more information for you.

Escalation Levels

For the sake of simplicity I am going to break down Threat Level into 3 parts. In my school I break it down further, but lets look at the things the average person will encounter.

1) Level One - This is the beginning stage. You have encounter a disruptive person or a situation in which a potential attacker is "interviewing" you. Under most circumstances there is always an interview. For those types of people who are into the conflict and combat types of situation this may not occur. Or occurred in the past. Then they are ambushed. That is not what happens to the average person.

This stage has distinct signs and it requires situational awareness. There are also certain skills needed to handle this stage. Good assertive verbal skills, knowledge of the area in which you are in and possible escape routes. But most of all, an understanding of how to preemptively use pressure points to discourage the attacker, subdue the attacker and possibly restrain the attacker till the police arrive.

2) Level Two -. This is in reference to AFTER the attacker has taken the threat from talk to physical aggression. This includes all of the above, plus the ability to knock the attacker out, allowing for escape or intervention from authorities. 

3) Level Three - This is high level threats that include weapons like knife, guns and clubs. Also multiple attackers!

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

What is H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics? "Is this something I need?" This is a question I have been getting asked all week, so lets take a good look at exactly what this is all about. 

Let's do an FAQ on H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics!

Question # 1

Who is this series of courses for? 

Answer: This is for any martial arts student or instructor who is concerned about the effectiveness of the self defense aspects of their martial art system. The escalation of violence across the globe is reason for this concern. Today violence erupts over NOTHING.

Question # 2

Is this only for Kyusho Jitsu Students?

Answer: No, this course includes real working techniques that anyone can learn and apply to self defense. This is not a "Kyusho Jitsu" class. We will not be talking about "Kyusho Principles" or other related topics. This is a different ballgame. We will use pressure points, however the focus is different. 

Question # 3

Can I teach after I certify?

Answer: Yes! I encourage you to do this! The contents of this course can be integrated into you current martial arts system. Or you can teach special interest groups like social workers, police or anyone else you think could benefit from the information!

Question # 4

What does the first course cover?

Answer: The Level One Course covers situations which have not "yet" escalated to violence. However there is a good possibility that they will! Therefore preemptive action is required! As an example if you strike someone preemptively you can end up on assault charges. Why? Because technically you started it! Legally also. This will keep you on the right side of the law, but allowing you to handle the threat effectively.

The idea behind H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics is to take control, without excessive force and end the threat. This could be by removing the person from the area as an example.

Question # 5

Can you show examples of the kind of things you will teach?

Answer: Yes I can. Below is a video from 2012 of an H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics certification I did in my school in Canada.  Now remember this is excerpts, so you see examples, but there is a lot of information missing in this video that will NOT be missing in the course!

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Modern society has changed making Humane Pressure Point Tactics critical in today's self defense world. So what exactly are Humane Pressure Point Tactics? First lets define the word "humane."

Definition of humane
1: marked by compassion, sympathy, or consideration for humans or animals.


This is the basic definition and for our purposes works very well. In a self defense situation many martial arts will react very strongly, sometime killing or permanently crippling the attacker. Therefore ending up on the wrong side of the law. Even today many defenders are arrested and imprisoned for using "excessive force." 

Why should we care?

This question has been asked of me, plus I have seen it kicked around online.  Personally someone attacks me I do not care what happens to them. However I do care what happens to me! And you should care what happens to you also!

Yes you must be prepared to use lethal force! But ONLY when it is warranted! 

What I used to teach

Under Canadian law if someone attacks you and you HURT them, perhaps leaving the unconscious on the ground you are required to call 911 and remain with them. Unless you believe they are still a threat, then you can flee to safety. But you must call 911!

I taught this, but said outright I would NOT call!. I have no compassion in my heart for this CRIMINAL. However in our surveillance society I am going to be seen by some leaving the scene, and am now subject to serious charges against me. I assume this applies to most of the western world too! A good friend and self defense EXPERT Chad Barry pointed this our to me a seminar. [Bojuka] Chad was also training in H.P.P.T like myself with Steve Stewart. 

What does Humane Pressure Point Tactics teach?
Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

In this course I will teach you many different skills. These will be pressure point based, movement based, and verbal command based enabling you to keep control of the disruptive person or attacked. Therefore ending the THREAT!

Then escalating the situation if need be to end the threat. Up to and including lethal force when or if required!

This is not a "touchy/feely" approach to self defense.

This is a PAIN BASED control method allowing for ending a threat while remaining on the correct side of the Criminal Code for Self Defense!

Your RIGHT to self defense is being challenged!

This is NOT an over reaction on my part. The power that be want to restrict and eliminate your right to self defense!  It is as plain as day when you look at the LIES being perpetrated in the media. England even wants to outlaw carrying a KNIFE

This is because they want to control and "protect" you. Sorry self defense is a basic human right! But we need to education people on doing it properly, and provide methods to certify teachers doing it! 

Truly education people to use and understand reasonable force!
