What Pressure Points Can Kill You?

What Pressure Points Can Kill You?

What Pressure Points Can Kill You?

Can striking a pressure points result in death? In this article I am going to address this age old question with a truthful and factual answer! What Pressure Points Can Kill You? From the onset of the question there are NO PRESSURE POINTS that when activated result in death. That is ancient folklore, and there is zero evidence of it being true. There are some who claim it is true, but unless they have actually murdered someone with a strike to a specific pressure point, they are lying. But even if they did cause death, there are other reasons.

This we will examine today!

What Pressure Points Can Kill You?

In the ancient art of Dim Mak as an example they speak of "delayed death" as a result of a strike. Now is this even possible? Yes it is, but not for the reasons that the practitioner thinks, and there is NO WAY to predict this result.  I have a course available on Dim Mak that goes into details as to how this all works. Follow this link for more information on the Dim Mak Project.

Now one place we can look to get a good idea of how all this works is boxing. Over the years there have been many deaths because of being involved in a boxing match. MMA is going to have a huge death and disability tole also!  Now when someone is punched HARD in the head, or punched in the head at all, the brain will smash against the side of the skull. This will result in a concussion. 

What Pressure Points Can Kill You?

What Pressure Points Can Kill You?

This is an image of a concussion in the early stages. It is falsely believed that wearing a helmet can prevent a concussion. This is dead wrong. A helmet protects against a skull fracture, not a concussion.

Now depending on how fast the brain swells, and how much it hemorrhages death can result! However the reason for death is not the punch, it is the concussion that comes because of the punch. Therefore you cannot say that a punch to the head results in death! Do you follow me?

Looking at Pressure Points

There are many dangerous pressure points! However to say they are deadly is really not an accurate term. If you know how to correctly strike one of these "pressure points" the resulting damage can lead to death. However there is no way to predict this kind of event. And death will occur for other reasons! 

Now everything in the body is connected to everything else. As an example there is really only one meridian in the human body. A meridian is simply a complex energy path that is created due to inductive reactance [Chi] that is association with nerve functions. These path then have predominate characteristics in Chinese Medicine and in Kyusho Jitsu that relate to an organ. The reasons are very complex and far beyond the scope of a single article. However you can certainly find this information easily

Now if we take a look at a pressure point, one that falls into the category of "What Pressure Points Can Kill You" we can talk about GB-20 [Gall Bladder 20].

Let's look at GB-20
Pressure Point Knockouts

What Pressure Points Can Kill You

In this image you can see this pressure point lies on the greater occipital nerve. This nerve is tied into and protects the muscles that keep the skull in place as it relates to the spine. 

A good HARD clean strike to this are will result in a knockout. The brain will shut down to protect this integrity. You can also use the science of pressure point self defense to setup this pressure point for an easier knockout.

But can this pressure point cause death?

Directly, no it cannot. However if it is struck hard enough, which will cause the muscles to fail, the resulting blow can dislodge the skull from the spinal column resulting in sever injury to the nervous system. Therefore permanent paralysis or death is possible! This is similar to a whiplash. 

However death is possible but not probable! This is the reason this pressure point can be used for knockout demonstrations without much to worry about. 

What Pressure Points Can Kill You? [Dangerous Points]

Let's take a moment and look at a more dangerous set of pressure points. Now I always strongly advise against using these points for any kind of demonstration due to what happens to the body when they are stimulated. 

This is ST-09,10 [Stomach 9&10]

What Pressure Points Can Kill You?

Stomach 9 and 10

You can see the relative position of ST-9 and 10 with regards to the neck and jawline. In the image below you will also notice the proximity to the caroted artery(s).

Kyusho Jitsu Secrets

Kyusho Jitsu Secrets

This area is governed in part by the vagus nerve. When these point are struck there is a resulting drop in blood pressure. This is called a "vassal faint" or Reflex syncope.  This is a brief loss of consciousness due to a neurologically induced drop in blood pressure.  This will not however cause death under normal circumstances. 

However the impact can result in arterial damage and in extreme cases it is possible when the blood pressure returns to dislodge any plaque in the artery and end up causing a stroke.  Therefore under training conditions why would you risk striking these pressure points? Odds are in your favor of nothing happening, but then there is Murphy's Law!

In Conclusion

So, what Pressure Points Can Kill You? Directly there are none. Indirectly, with a deep understanding of how the body works, and serious in depth training, years of practice it is possible to have death as a result. But directly, answering the question the answer is there are no pressure points that can kill you. 

Are you Serious About Kyusho Jitsu?

I have an all new video series that just came out that takes a look at the science of pressure point self defense from an entirely new position. It has the ability to bring your level of understanding and effectiveness in the application of Kyusho Jitsu to the street to an all new level.

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

What are Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions? Are they different and how do they differ from the standard strikes of other martial art systems? Let's take a look at this one in some details!

Have you ever seen a person who is about to strike someone? Especially if they are angry? The fist is clenched very tight, to try to create a strong object to do as much damage as possible, 

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

You can see the tension in the fist. While is does no lots of damage. The results are much slower to appear. This only affects the surrounding tissue and not necessarily the nervous or vascular systems of the body.

Swelling does occur from the use of a fist. But it takes time. This makes it very ineffective!

Actually when you look at someone in any kind of high negative emotional state you will see them with clenched fists, and a clenched jaw too! Because of the adrenaline flow in the body, it becomes very tense, and constricts energy flow. 

Even in competitions you will see this! There is a belief that harder is better. If this was the case most ring fights would end after one or two punches. But they don't, they last for a long time! 

Brain Trauma

Brain Trauma

Is damage being done? 100% yes! If you were to perform an MRI Scan on someone after taking few good head shots you would see an fast amount of damage! But they keep coming. In the street that is a BIG PROBLEM!

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Therefore the importance of understanding the basic Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions. These are all related to the elements of the body and when understood are very effective

The major difference is they are all in a relaxed state. When the body is relaxed it then projects energy. When it is tense it conceals energy. And if you understand the Yin-Yang Theories you will know the attacker conceals energy because of his emotional state!

Here is a breakdown of the Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

  • Slapping Action for Fire
  • Vibrating Action for Metal
  • Chopping Action for Wood
  • Penetrating Action for Earth
  • Grasping Action for Water

These are all pretty straight forward and not difficult to learning. Plus they are effective with or without Chi development. With Chi development is always better, but not everyone dedicates time to the work! If you are curious about Chi Development follow this link and learn more. 

Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

But yes there is more than just the Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions.  This is dependent on Chi Development, however is FAR more effective than the standard methods. 

What is Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions all about? First let's look at the most powerful of the standard Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions. This is the grasping action of attacking water. 

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Why is this action so effective? The body is made up of about 70% water. The idea of grasping causes ripples in the water chi of the body, and therefore gives a strong effect as this becomes imbalanced! Think about what happens if you grasp into a pool of water. Same idea!

But what if there was a way to cause a massive affect on the water energy of the body? Create a more violent affect? 

This would be done with a striking action in a WAVE form of energy, or Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

For the last 100 plus years a Black Belt has been the symbol of excellence in the world. Today it still holds this very high meaning! And obtaining a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt is no exception to this rule.

There are people who are very "negative" at the idea of people being promoted to various levels of Black Belt. The problem is however these men, and they always seem to be men, somehow believe this is a status symbol only a few should be allowed to obtain. They see it as a "touch guy" image.

They get very upset when they see people obtain ranks that "they do not believe these people deserve." Often times the comments are that this "diminishes" their or others rank and/or accomplishments in the arts. Bullshit!

Seriously guys, get some help! You have serious "self worth" issues if you believe what someone else does changes how people think of you.  Plus why do you care?

Why get a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt?
Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

The main reason for someone who is studying the science of pressure point self defense to work towards a Black Belt is what this does to their motivations. Unlike the rest of the animal kingdom people are "goal seeking" creatures.

Animals have basic instincts that people also possess, but we also need much more! We need to have purpose of meaning in our lives. Working towards and obtaining a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt is once such activity! 

However, I must add this. You have to do the work and earn it! In the current climate people are often given things without actually having done what needs to be done. Like metals and trophies to children who lost. This does not make "strong" people! It is likely one of the reasons for the high suicide rate in the west!

The current ideology of "equality of outcome" is terrible for people! Equality of opportunity 100% yes, outcome 100% no! 

Without meaning comes a sense of worthlessness, depression and hopelessness. So that being said, if you want to achieve a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt you gotta do the work, and make the grade!

The Meaning of Black Belt

I have been asked, "if Kyusho is not a full art then why do I promote to Black Belt?" The reason is easy! People understand the meaning of the term Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt and therefore wish to excel to be worthy of the honour! 

Art Mason circa 1997

Art Mason circa 1997

If fact there is a corporation today that uses the martial arts belt system is evaluate and promote their own people! See the value and "meaning" this can have? 

Martial Arts is supposed to be about BUILDING strong people with good character! We have an important mission and need to move forward with it! Hard work and dedication are good for you!

Getting Started on the Road to a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

Are you interested in becoming a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt under the KJWA? There have never been a better time than now!

I have torn down one of the biggest barriers to a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt. That is the price barrier! Therefore there has never been a better time to act! Most of all this will get you started today! 

And action is the best way to achieve! Follow the link below and learn about our Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course Today!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

There is an old saying, "everybody wants to go to heaven but no one wants to be dead." This is not just a reference to a way in which people think, but a reflection on society! People want a result, but without having to do the work or put in effort! So today I am going to offer some Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips to help you get past this curve!

But before we get into Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips I need to lay some groundwork.

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips - RIGHT to Self Defense

Everyone has a god(s) given right to defense themselves from attack! However the understanding of this does need to be clear! Today in the western culture everyone is screaming for more "rights." But there is a BIG issue with this?

Right to Self Defense - Know the Law!

Right to Self Defense - Know the Law!

Do you know the issue? For there to be "rights" there must also be responsibility! But in today world this is just NOT the case!

With "rights" comes responsibility, and the citizens must be responsible! Looking to "authority" to deal with your problems is creating a prison in which you must live!

It is your Right to Self Defense, and your responsibility to be prepared!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #1

You cannot cherry pick pressure points! I see this a lot in self defense. "Well when this happens I will...."  Sorry guys life does not work that way! An attack, or a fight if you will, is a living entity unto itself! And this entity is also not stupid. 

Often times I see so much in the self defense world the idea of "groin" strikes. Yes they can be very effective. And yes they should be trained for! From a Kyusho Jitsu standpoint this can be a strike to Conception Vessel 1, which is devastating!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips - Conception Vessel

But self defense is not premeditated, it needs to be responsive. Also not reactive.

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips # 2

Knockouts are king! The very best way to end any kind of attack or fight is when you knock them out! You must know the systems that cause this, why they work and how best to apply them! 

How do you know when you are really understanding this important aspect of the science of pressure point self defense? When I was teaching on the floor full time in my Canadian school I would often be explaining something, or showing something and knockout the student by accident. 

Oppssss....

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #3

You need to know a lot of different pressure points on the body! The larger the number of pressure points you train with, the greater your chances of being able to hit one when you need to! 

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense - Tips Know the Points!

Yesterday (Friday) released a new video, which is going to be part of a series called "10 Best Pressure Points for Self Defense". In this video I breakdown what I consider to be the 10 most important pressure points for self defense. Where they are located, how to strike them. And what the effect of the strike will be!

Plus I am even giving people charts to find them correctly!

Now I really value my time! However right now I am almost giving this video away.  You can grab the video and the charts right now for under 10 bucks! You are crazy not too! The link below will take you there for more details.​​

You gotta do the work, if you want the results!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #4

You have to feel the effect! In order to truly be successful with Kyusho Jitsu you need to do this! You must have felt the effect of a pressure point strike on your own person! 

Now I have strict rules about ages for knockouts. I do NOT like doing knockouts on anyone over 35 really. This is because we never know the underlying medical conditions that can exist.

However, and am more than willing to tap ST-05 with reasonable force and ring someones bell! This "internalizes" the understanding within the mind, and this leads to success! All victories in a person life are link to your internal psychology. There are no exceptions!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #5

Ask questions! If you are learning from someone who does not like to be asked questions, or ridicules the question then it is time for a new teacher! Being a teacher is a gift! And I honesty do not see very many good ones out there!

Great Teachers Inspire

Great Teachers Inspire!

Great Teachers Inspire Students to new heights! 

There is an old saying, "do not seek to be like the master, but seek what the master sought."

Every person learns differently. There are 3 different major type of learning. There is visual, auditory and kinetic! Each person has different strengths. The teacher should be able to spot the type you are in order to lean towards and alter his or her methods of teaching on the fly!

Also run from those who tell you there way is the only way and the other ideas are useless. These are instructors, preaching a doctrine of their own making! You need a teacher who is flexible and has ideas! Run like hell from these other guys!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #6

I was only planning on doing 5 Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips but here is number 6! Keep looking to learn new things! As you grow and develop in the science of pressure point self defense, learning new things helps to solidify the knowledge you already have! 

In self defense or anything else for that matter, the mind is everything! And this is not a surface understanding either! Science cannot even explain why the mind is everything or how it works. 

Associate Memory - Understand how you learn

Associate Memory - Understand how you learn

However the path to success is very clear. Therefore the more you learn, then train the understanding both physically and mentally, the better the results! The brain works by "associative memory."  So the more you learn, the more associations there are, the greater the success!

Some totally new!

With all this in mind I am launching on July 1st 2018 something totally new! It is called Quantum Kyusho Jitsu.  On July 1st the first video in the series will be released. As always right now I am giving a discount for anyone who preorders the video.

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense?

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense?

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense Large Intestine 18

That is a GREAT question! What are the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense? The answer is not black and white, and I have done years of research to come up with a conclusion! 

So let's get into it and talk about the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense!

What are the criteria?

First we need to look at what criteria I used to determine the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense. Not all pressure points when it comes to self defense are created equally! There are many pressure points that work very well on pretty much everyone tested. But there "EFFECT" is minimal therefore in self defense they are not much use!

As an example, LU-8 and HT-06. These pressure points when used together will cause a release of both the wrist and the hand! I have never met ANYONE that I could not make this work on! But the problem is on the street "buddy" is gonna be punching my face in while I am working these points! 

Therefore they are not the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense!

How did I decide?

The next question is how did I decide on the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense? 

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Making Pressure Points Work!

Criteria

  • They must have a high rate of reliability on as many different types of people as possible. I typically look for a 90% effective rate!
  • They must be stand alone pressure points that do not require setup or assistance from other strikes to be effective.
  • The result of stimulation must be predictable!
  • They must have a pronounced effect on the attacker, a valuable effect!
What is a Valuable Effect?

A valuable effect is when a strike or manipulation will cause the attacker to be:

  1. Unconscious
  2. Unable to use a limb due to paralysis
  3. Or unable to continue the attack

Without these kinds of effects the pressure point in question cannot be included in this list! Other pressure points can be used in lower escalation situations, which is not the purpose of this list. I am also excluding "deadly" pressure point because they are in a category of their own!

Does Pain Count?

For the purpose of the Best Pressure Points for Self Defense pain is only counted when it is high enough to override the rush of adrenaline the attacker is experiencing! Pain only matters when it is crippling!

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense

Best Pressure Points for Self Defense

Easy Integration

Plus all these Best Pressure Points for Self Defense must be easily integrated into any root art or self defense system! The idea behind the science of pressure point self defense is not to change the martial art you currently study. The purpose is to enhance its effectiveness!

That is the something our teaching at the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance has accomplished! 

ALL new Video!

And some great news! On Friday I am going to be releasing an all new video on the Top 10 Best Pressure Points for Self Defense. In this video I will not JUST list these pressure points but give you real information on how to strike or manipulate them. What the correct angle and direction is. I will do into great detail the exactly how to impediment them! This video cover it all!

How Kyusho Works [Pressure Points]

How Kyusho Works

How Kyusho Works

How Kyusho Works

So, how does Kyusho Jitsu Work? Today I am going to go into details on exactly how Kyusho Works, with a real NO BS answer for you! So hang on tight and lets get to the truth of exactly how Kyusho works!

The first thing I need to do is to define "what a pressure point is." Every Kyusho Jitsu teacher I know of teaches this, after which things can become confusing for the student. 

What is a pressure point?

A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve terminates or comes to an end. Where a nerve crosses over or under another nerve.  Or where a nerve branches off into as an example a "Y."

Free Kyusho Information

The Lung Meridian

So what does this tell you? It gives you a clear path to understanding "How Kyusho Works" because as I hope you see from this, Kyusho Jitsu is "nerve" strikes. For some reason today that is NOT understood and has been lost in the Chinese Medical approach to teaching. 

How Kyusho Works - Eastern Medicine

The stand approach for instructors teaching the science of pressure point self defense is the "eastern" or "Chinese" medical approach.  And there is a VERY good reason for doing this! But I will get into that later in the article. 

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Eastern Medicine

However, this does cause issues! There are many people in the west, and today this is the bulk of martial artists, who blindly believe anything medical science in the west has to say today.  I call this brainwashing! Why? Because over the 50 plus years of my life their "facts" always change as new information comes to light!

The real truth is,when it comes to biology there is "probability" not FACT because ever person is different. Therefore a questioning mind is needed for anything. Because someone is a "doctor" does not make them perfect! There are great doctors, and bad doctors, like anything else is the world!

Now with that out of the way, the eastern approach which I still teach today is based on "reverse" acupuncture. Does it work? Yes it does and very effectively! 

BUT, it is only part of the equation! 

How Kyusho Works - Western Medicine

In my teaching I spend a lot of time explaining Kyusho Jitsu from the western, nerve strike point of view. A while back I had a martial arts master, who was a "disbeliever" in Kyusho Jitsu say to me, "if it is just nerves strikes why do we need Kyusho?"

The Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

The Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

I did not bother to explain it to him. His mind is closed like so many today, and I have better things to do that try to change minds.

When I teach Kyusho with references to western medicine I do so in very simply terms, that allow the student to relate to something we understand in our western cultures. Plus I also encourage them to ask their doctor about the things I explain.

Why do I keep it simple? Because it is important to relate Kyusho Jitsu with how the body functions, but students unless they are interested do not need a detailed breakdown of the functions of the nervous and vascular systems.  

Knowledge and Ego

Knowledge and Ego

I am not interested in showing off my intelligence.  I am too old for ego crap! Therefore I am interested in making strong, confident and knowledgeable students! 

How Kyusho Works - both disciplines

When it come to understanding how Kyusho works both disciplines are needed. For some people who tend to be "left brained" they need the western approach! It appeals to their logical minds.  For the person who is "right brained" this information does not help them. In fact it will turn them off! 

They need the more creative eastern approach to bring them to an understanding their more creative mind can see. The right brained person tends to see more in pictures, therefore seeing energy flow in a meridian will help them learn and apply more than thinking about the "occipital" nerve. 

Side Note
How Kyusho Works

How Kyusho Works

Let me be blunt here! Some martial arts teachers like turning off students and getting them to quit! They somehow in their myopic minds think that this makes them important! Sorry, reaching the student is the GOAL! Not making them quit!

This is why at Kyusho Jitsu University and with courses like our Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course teach both disciplines! And this is why my success rate teaching Kyusho Jitsu and getting them to Black Belt range, and master levels is so high.

It also means I need to be available for FULL support of my students and their questions, which I am! The ultimate of this is our Coaching Program.  

How Kyusho Works - The Middle Way
Kyusho Jitsu Cycle of Emotions - Control Emotions

The Middle Way

The very best approach for the average person to learning the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu in experiencing and learning from both words. Focus on one without the other, until a master level is reached is a BIG mistake. 

Why? Because the goal of the teaching and learning is application!  Another big issue I see in the martial art instructors world this that their way is the only way! I have been blessed at being successful in every self defense incident I have had in my life.

What is success? I am still here! However I do know that what works for one may not work for another. Therefore a broad range of teaching is required! Every student is different and systems needs to be in place to help them all reach success. 

How Kyusho Works?

It works by striking or manipulating a pressure point or nerve on the body. The over-stimulation causes a, what is hope, is a predictable result in the humane body. Causing unconsciousness or paralysis in a limb, drop or blood pressure etc....

When incorporated into a martial art style or system it can increase the effectiveness of the art thereby increasing the odds of success in an altercation.

In conclusion today I want to leave you with a thought. When you are communicating with anyone, always assume they have something to teach you. It might be something to do, or something not to do. But everyone has something to teach you!

Do Kyusho Jitsu Secrets Exist?

Kyusho Jitsu Secrets

Kyusho Jitsu Secrets

Do Kyusho Jitsu Secrets really exist? Is there "hidden" information out there that only a handful of people know about? The answer is both Yes & No!

One of the most common complaints I get from martial artists who have come from other organizations to join the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is I was "not really learning anything."

That is very sad, but I cannot say I am surprised!

What are the Kyusho Jitsu Secrets?
Kyusho Jitsu Secrets

Kyusho Jitsu Secrets

There are really no secrets, only information that martial arts instructors tend to keep to themselves so that they can retain their positions above  the students. To my mind that is the wrong thing to do, the wrong way to approach things, and the major difference between an "instructor" and a "teacher."

I am a TEACHER.

Also telling students they cannot talk to, or belong to other organizations is suicide! Your students are your life blood, you need them as much as they need you! Lose the EGO guys! Yeah, this opinion does NOT made me popular. Oh well!

Here is a TRUE story for you from back almost 8 years ago.

Travel to Teach a Seminar
Master Curt Mason - Humane Pressure Point Tactics Windsor

Master Curt Mason - Humane Pressure Point Tactics Windsor

I was headed to Bucharest Romania in fall of 2010 to teach a weekend seminar. As I was in the process of booking this I was approached by another group in Europe to come there the following weekend. 

We talked about price and they agreed to fly me from Bucharest to their city, then return me to Bucharest for my flight back to Canada. Therefore this was a win/win for everyone. And the price I was giving them excellent! It meant being in Bucharest a week, but that was OK. 

Now being that I was not very well known I was not going to command big money like some other instructors were getting. And I was good with that! It takes time to build a solid reputation. 

So everything was setup, I agree to come from Bucharest to their city. But I made a BIG mistake. I did not take a deposit. I arrived in Bucharest on the Thursday afternoon for my Friday seminar. Once there I had a email cancelling the second seminar. 

Now I am stuck in Bucharest for an extra week, and no seminar to teach. I have a school in Canada to run. This did not make me happy. The other group had decided to bring a high end instructor in at 3 times the price.

Returned to Canada

Teaching at a Kyusho Seminar for Steve Stewart London On 2010.

After my total of 8 days in Bucharest I returned home. A few days later I got an email from the guy who cancelled on me. I asked how his seminar went and he said AWESOME. "You should see the thing that "Master XXXX" can do.!"

"Cool so what did you learn? Can you do this?" The answer was "well, no but he was amazing!" My final comment was, "so you paid 2000 euro plus expenses for a show?"

A few days later I was contacted by the group about perhaps coming the following spring and teaching some classes. I politely declined. I suggested he stay loyal to Master XXXX. [I will not print his name out of respect to him]

Do I keep Secrets?
Kyusho Jitsu Seminars

Kyusho Jitsu Seminars

The answer as you can asked my students is NO I teach everything! Why? Because first of all my teacher GM Stewart did not keep secrets from me. And I want my students to be better then me with time!

I teach everything! But when the student is ready to understand the information. And I do it for a very reasonable price. This will not always stay this way because the busier I get the more I need to chose who gets what and when. 

My time is limited by the clock, and we all must make a living! This tells you that now is the time to get involved with our programs! Why? Because if you really learn how to use the science of pressure point self defense in real life, then it is time to take the first steps. And I don't keep Kyusho Jitsu Secrets!

Kyusho Jitsu on Black Belt Wiki

For the last several years I have been working to end the controversy about pressure point self defense.  Now we have ACCURATE information about Kyusho Jitsu on Black Belt Wiki site! This makes me very happy! It will be expanding over the coming days also.

I reached out to the owner of the site about 10 days ago, about contributing real technical information about Kyusho Jitsu on Black Belt Wiki. I was very happy when they accepted!

Kyusho Got a BUM RAP

Kyusho Jitsu, the science of pressure point self defense got a bum rap years ago due to essentially bad marketing.  Just as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skyrocketed to the top because of brilliant marketing!  When this kind of thing happens, it takes time to recover and rebuild! But we are getting there slowly!

What happened? Misrepresentation of HOW pressure point self defense actually works. Then some alleged "masters" began smear campaigns because they had an AX to grind with Grand Master Dillman. 

When you reach the top, there is a lot of jealously and envy. But there are secrets to dealing with them! Actually there are several of these "men" and I use the term loosely who are legally "LIABLE for SLANDER."  Now that would be some great KARMA!

Those who throw stones at others are usually the ones with the most to hide about themselves.

Truth about Kyusho Jitsu!

I am hoping having accurate information about Kyusho Jitsu on Black Belt Wiki will help open the eyes and minds of many people. Today our organization, The Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is growing strong, and will help promote accurate and real pressure point self defense to the masses wishing to learn!

If you are new to the entire science of pressure point self defense and wish to get started I suggest our Mini Course. We have a 30 Day Video based Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course you can join today! Just fill out the form below, verify your email and you are in! If you are in the EU you can read our GDPR Policy here.

Romanian Martial Arts Training Camp

Just a reminder also the RMATC, the Romanian Martial Arts Training Camp is just a little over 2 months away!  This is the 1st annual and will become the premier Kyusho Jitsu / Martial Arts event in all of Europe! It is being held here in Brasov Romania on July 13th to July 15th 2018.

I have spent a lot of time in reference to this camp also promoting coming to Brasov! It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world! The city slogan was "probably the best city in the world" and I agree! So why do I promote it? Because you can come and train, bring the family and enjoy a great and economical vacation at the same time! 

Take a look at this video and see why I love it here!

5 Reasons to Study Kyusho Jitsu

5 Reasons to Study Kyusho Jitsu

5 Reasons to Study Kyusho Jitsu

Top 5 Reasons to Study Kyusho Jitsu

Why study Kyusho Jitsu? What are the advantages to the study of the science of pressure point self defense? The truth is there are MANY reasons to do so. But today I am going to give you a list of 5 of the top reasons!

5 Reasons

These are far from the ONLY reasons, I can think of dozens. But lets start simple shall we?

  1. It makes your techniques more effective! How does it do this? When you study Kyusho Jitsu you begin to look at how the body works, and therefore the best ways to affect the body. The neurological systems controls how everything works. Attacking this is therefore a MUST!
  2. Size stops mattering! When I was young and Bruce Lee was still alive people spoke about in martial arts size does not matter. In today's martial arts competition oriented world size matters a LOT! That is because this knowledge of pressure points has been lost.
  3. Ageless. When you study Kyusho Jitsu it also helps to compensate for aging! This one I know very well! Age and injury eventually take advantage of us all! Even Chuck Norris
  4. Expands your understanding. Kyusho Jitsu will also help to expand your understanding of the root art you study! There is no wasted movement in any martial art system. But if can seem like there is. That is because knowledge gets lost over time. The study of Kyusho Jitsu helps to bring this back!
  5. Understanding Kata. There is magic locked inside your Kata! But on the surface it is often overlooked. The study of Kyusho Jitsu will help you to unlock the secrets in your Kata? Why is this important? It is because when you see these things, your brain then accepts and internalizes the movement. Therefore making them, or versions of them accessible during a stressful self defense situation. Here are some other benefits of Kata training as well. 

Ready to Study Kyusho Jitsu?

So are you ready to study in depth the science of pressure point self defense? There is a lot of information on the internet, but honestly a lot of it is very superficial and inaccurate too. However I believe in teaching the "real thing!" Not a watered down, incomplete version.
