Understanding Pressure Point Science

What do I mean by Understanding Pressure Point Science? First we need to define what science really is! It has nothing to do with main stream science today as this is no longer science but almost a religion! 

Science:
  • 1 n. The observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.
  • 2 n. Such activities restricted to a class of natural phenomena.
  • 3 n. Such activities applied to an object of inquiry or study.

    Understanding Pressure Point Science

    Recently TV star Neil degrasse Tyson made the comment "I am not a professional skeptic I am a scientist!"

    Well actually no, you are preacher because science is all about skepticism! 

    Above is the real, correct meaning of the word. And today it is very important to use words with their correct meanings! Now the reason I bring up the above is because the science of pressure point self defense is all about asking questions, doing study and research. It is also about seeing what works and what does not work. And then looking for the results to be replicated with as high a percent as possible!

    Understanding Pressure Point Science

    There are many different levels of study when it comes to Kyusho Jitsu. As with any other kind of study. If you wish to advance you must do the work! For the beginners level there is a 30 Day Free Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course people can take. It is free for a reason! This gives the opportunity to try out real information and then see for themselves what works and what does not.

    So how do I approach these teachings? I do so from a combination of eastern medicine and western medicine. Both side explain very well how things work, just from a different approach!

    What kinds of things do you learn in this Understanding Pressure Point Science? First there are 5 Basic/Novice Principles that are covered along with anatomy! You will develop a great understanding of how the human body works and how to disrupt its functions. As you advanced you will develop skills in a total of 15 Principles! These 15 Principle of Kyusho Jitsu are the cornerstone of study!

    Today I going to give you a FREE video below you can watch! This goes into great details on how the 2nd Principle of Kyusho Jitsu works, which is the Cycle of Destruction! If you do not have time, just bookmark this page! You can learn more about these Principles of Kyusho Jitsu from this LINK.

    Understanding Pressure Point Science

    So what do we do in the science? The first step is to learn, and of course memorize the principles and other concepts. Next you take that information on to the Dojo training floor and begin to apply it! At first for most people this is a challenge. Learning anything new is always a challenge! This is because at first we have doubts about what we are doing. But over time these doubts will fade and your work will show progress!

    Also remember too, that is science is not a destination but a journey! This is something forgotten today! When you sincerely do the work, you will always get a result!

    Understanding Pressure Point Science - The Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project

    I am a fortunate man as I can focus on my passion full time. This allows me to explore and do real research that many cannot do because of job constrains, family and time. I do not fall into that category and can do what I love for a living. Therefore I often come up with and test new ideas and theories. And these lead to other ideas and theories.

    Quantum Kyusho Jitsu & Yin Yang Theories

    Quantum Kyusho Jitsu & Yin Yang Theories

    At first for me it was the idea of something I called Meridian Theory. The concept that you really did not have to focus on pressure points as much as you do the meridian pathways. Then with this understanding I began to add my study of the ancient secrets of the Octagon to it. 

    it was from here that the idea of Quantum Kyusho Jitsu was born! The first step was then to create a video to give people a basic understanding of the foundational theories of Quantum Kyusho Jitsu. This was released back in June 2018 to rave reviews! I even was asked to teach it at the Romanian Martial Arts Training Camp!

    You can learn more about the Introduction to Quantum Kyusho Jitsu from this link!

    Then one morning not too long ago I awoke with an idea, a theory. I began to make notes and the idea for Quantum Kyusho Jitsu 360 was born! Below is a short video to give you more details.

    Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project

    And thus begins a new leg of the journey of understanding Pressure Point Science I am calling the Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project! Below are 2 links. The first will take you to the Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project page where you can learn more and signup for a special mailing list with project updates.

    Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

    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 abig 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

    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. When you learn this aspect of the science of pressure point self defense all your questions about your root style get answered!

    Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes

    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

    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

    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 21

    Now in this image to the right you can see the pressure point Spleen 21. 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

    Femoral Nerve

    Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes -Spleen Meridian

    Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes -Spleen Meridian

    Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes

    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!

    What Pressure Points Can Kill You?

    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

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Quantum Kyusho Jitsu

    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!

    Follow this LINK BELOW NOW and learn all about this amazing new video!

    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!
