Humane Pressure Point Self Defense

​Humane Pressure Point Self Defense

What are Humane Pressure Point Self Defense [tactics] and why is it so important for martial artists to learn and understand these? First I want to address any controversy you have read about over time.

Kyusho Jitsu or pressure point fighting has been criticized as being not effective and ​criticized by many, many "expert" martial artists who are simply too "closed minded, stupid or lazy" to do the study.  If I punch you in the face it is going to HURT. If I alter the method slightly and hit you in the face where a nerve is closer to the surface or more exposed it will hurt a ​LOT MORE. ​Pressure Points when studied and applied correctly WORK. I find these types of people laughable at best.

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Back in 2009 I completed the HPPT Courses with Grand Master Steve Stewart that certified me as a Level Three Humane Pressure Point Tactics Instructor. There were only 3 levels to the course. Today the certification patch is still on my Gi also. It was a great ​course!

What is this for?

The main idea is to be able to take complete control of a bad situation, before it turns to violence. The course is perfect to teach anyone in a position of deal with the public where problem can arise. [Bars, security, high school teachers, medical etc]. In fact I did a course years ago for ambulance attendants.

It is also excellent for police as it helps them control a situation without needing to use a taser or "billy" stick. Below is a short video example of a Humane Pressure Point Self Defense Tactic.

​Why is this Important?

Why is Humane Pressure Points, or Humane Kyusho Jitsu as I usually call it so very important to the average martial artist? Now you can argue for a "moral" responsibility, but that one for me kind of falls on deaf ears. People make choices, and attacking someone is a choice.

However there are very important legal concerns. Here is an accepted Legal Definition of Self Defense. Our concern as martial artists is that we comply with this definition because we live in a "legal" system and not a "justice" system. Therefore we must use "reasonable force" at all times!

If we do not, then it could very well be us on assault charges or worse. And a trained martial artist will get very little sympathy from a jury.

Surveillance World

Today there is surveillance everywhere! I cannot think of any place you can really go in a city without someone seeing what is going on. They are also videoing it, but this rarely shows the true picture. If someone attacks you, and their buddy or girlfriend is there, and you "overdue" the defense, this can go bad fast!

Self Defense and Cameras everywhere!

Self Defense and Cameras everywhere!

Therefore the need of Humane Kyusho Jitsu.

Humane Pressure Point Self Defense of Humane Kyusho Jitsu, whichever term you prefer will allow you to handle a BAD situation before it escalates to a seriously violent end.  Here are a few example of times when this knowledge could really help you.

  1. The drunk brother in law who is sure he can take you.
  2. The guy in the bar who believes you are looking at his girlfriend
  3. A client or someone who becomes angry and the situation gets out of hand.

The list goes on and on! I am sure you can think of dozens of such example. Plus on a video, it looks as if you are defending yourself. And not attacking! I had one such situation years ago in  bar in Windsor where a guy who knew who i was had a "few too many" and needed to be "calmed."  Had I reacted with too much force this would have gone bad, FAST!

Learning these skills

I cannot overemphasize how important these skills are to develop. They are all "pain pressure point" based and work very well. As you can see from the video above, that "Come along" really hurts when done correctly.

And it is easy to apply too! There are so some verbal skills you need to learn also. This helps with control but also helps make you case if the altercation goes to court. 

​I have written an eBook on the subject of Humane Kyusho Jitsu and also have a very solid video on the topic. You an check both of these out from the links below!

​I almost forgot too! If you want to learn more about Humane Pressure Point Self Defense there is an article from Black Belt Magazine you can look at right here. Always remember success in a self defense situation gets down to many different things. All knowledge must be applied, which means you can just read it or watch it. You gotta do the work and train it!

Kyusho Jitsu Study Group Video [Novice]

​Kyusho Jitsu Study Group

Kyusho Jitsu Study Group

Kyusho Jitsu Study Group

Have you ever been in a Kyusho Jitsu Study Group? This was how I was taught for about 12 years. A Kyusho Jitsu Study Group in a Dojo is the best possible way to go, but if there is no instructor in your area it is very hard to do. Now I traveled about 180 KM one way to attend. And I would have happily traveled further.

But the great news is today, there are other very effective ways to learn.  You can now because of the way the internet is structure learn ONLINE and still get a high quality and effective Kyusho Jitsu Education.

A Kyusho Jitsu Study Group Video

Today I am going to share a video of a ONLINE Kyusho Jitsu Study Group that is part of Kyusho Jitsu University. These are held as part of our online courses every month. Most of our students see them as replays.

​Kyusho Jitsu University

If this is something you find of interest then I am going to give you a link to read more about our ONLINE courses. These are all certification courses, and this monthly study group video is ONLY a SMALL part of these courses.

​The science of pressure point self defense is a fascinating study. It can be integrated into any martial art style of system. Its integration makes any self defense more effective. However, like anything else it does require dedication and work! There are no quick fix solutions in life.

Update Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu

​Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu

Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu

​Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu

I have some great news about the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu. I have been working behind the scenes to try to decide the best way to bring this project to the world and keep the cost down.  And the great news is I have found an investor to help with the application development! This is allowing me to keep the price to the original $25 mark, which I consider to be very reasonable!

So what is the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu all about? It is going to be the ultimate reference for all things Kyusho Jitsu. An ​A to Z guide for finding out anything you need to know. There is even going to be references to specific highly used pressure points, such as GB-20 as an example.

Development

Right now we are in the early stages of the website development, adding content to the database. Anyone who preorders the encyclopedia has access to this, and can use it from a browser o​r phone for that matter because it is mobile friendly. After the first stage it will begin the mobile app development stage. Anyone who preorder will receive the application of their choice for their platform, plus lifetime upgrades. Right now I am taking bids on the development so that when the database is ready we will go full stream into the next stage.

How to be a Dedicated Kyusho Student

​Dedicated Kyusho Student

Dedicated Kyusho Student

Dedicated Kyusho Student

Are you a dedicated Kyusho Student? In today's very busy very distracted world being dedicated to any kind of study requires vigilance and some special skills. We are distracted by literally several thousands things per day, all trying to get our attention. Therefore we must develop some special "life skills" be become successful!

Skill #1

Desire: You need to have a burning desire to learn. If you think it might be something good to get into, you simply will not do the work. This is true of anything in life too!

Skill #2

Focus. You need to be able to put other things aside and focus. Turn off the cellphone, close down Facebook and do the work. Over the last 10 years I have seen students bring cellphones to c​lass! Unless you are waiting for an emergency call like a sick family member or wife having a child.​ Put the phone away.

Skill #3

Schedule. You need to set aside time for your study that is not going to be changed because something comes up. Be realistic too! Don't set aside 2 hours per day and then miss it! It is better to take 20 minutes 3 times per week and dedicate to it! This will give you a result. Commit to a reasonable schedule and keep it! You can always expand it later!

Skill #4

Goals. Set a goal based on the above and work to reach it! We are goal oriented creatures and this gives what we do purpose!

When you put these things in order then you are headed towards success in the science of pressure point self defense and anything else in life!

​In conclusion we have course that can help you meet these goals!​ Therefore if you have not yet done so take a look at our Novice Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course. ​And because this is a rank certification course and you will not believe how reasonable it is to take!

My First Kyusho Jitsu Study Group

​Kyusho Jitsu Study Group

Kyusho Jitsu Study Group

​Kyusho Jitsu Study Group

I well remember my first Kyusho Jitsu Study Group that I did in my Windsor School many years ago.The first step I did was to hold a "pre-college course" which I charged for. It was full also which made me very happy! My only complaint was that is was only my students as other school invited to attend did not even respond. But today I understand the reasons. Years of school operation give you a lot of insight, from trial and error, learning from mistakes!

After the college we began the course officially about a week later. The courses was held on a Saturday afternoon, for 3 hours, once per month. I had a group of 12 which was exactly what I was hoping for! Plus I was charging each of them $60 per session. So the income was a nice bonus!

Being this was a one year course. With 11 sessions then an exam day, we did have a few people "drop out." If memory serves me there were 3 who ending up quitting. I was so very excited on exam day as we all went to London for GM Stewart to preside over the tests. They all did great! Then it was "rinse and repeat" as I began a new Novice Kyusho Jitsu Study Group and added an advanced group for the graduates. Today these groups still happen every month in Canada. It has been going on for about 12 years.

Teaching Kyusho Jitsu

As you can tell I love teaching Kyusho Jitsu! By the time 2010 roles around I was a Level Five Certified Instructor under KIA/DKI. Today that knowledge has come in handy! But all students must eventually leave the teacher and go out on their own. Therefore in 2016 the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance was born. 

Today our organization has Kyusho Jitsu teachers in many different countries in the world. Our object is to create more! I use ONLINE Certification Courses to give martial artist the chance to bring the science of pressure point self defense to place were there are no physical teacher, so they can fill that void!

Are you someone who could do this in your city or region? Right now I am tearing down mountains to help people succeed doing this! I have even knocked $900 off the price of the Novice Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course to help motivated martial artists do this! Believe me I have had a lot of heat for doing it too! But it cannot last forever!

Are you a martial artist who is a self ​starting, motivated person?

Right now you can purchase the Novice Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course for ONLY $97! PLUS I ever give you the option to break it up into 3 payments! This is an all inclusive package that includes MY direct support with questions and help setting up your courses after!

This offer will end without notice! Act TODAY!

My First Kyusho Jitsu Seminar

​Kyusho Jitsu Seminar

Kyusho Jitsu Seminar

Kyusho Jitsu Seminar

I remember very well my first Kyusho Jitsu Seminar. It was in summer of 2001 I believe and was in London Ontario. The seminar was hosted by American Kenpo Master Steve Stewart. The presenter was George Dillman a man I knew from articles in Black Belt Magazine. I was really very curious.

Now I attended a lot of different seminars in those days as I was trying to expand my root art, as well as find new things to teach in my program. ​Also I had officially opened my school in March of 2000.​ My goal was to be the number one school in my city and build a solid reputation in the martial arts world. But this was my first Kyusho Jitsu Seminar.

Now I was ​fascinated by some of the things I had seen in magazines about pressure points. But there was little solid, understandable information online then about it. The seminar blew my mind! Dillman taught in the 1st session the 2-4-6 arm points and how to activate them. Being a Hapkido practitioner this was fascinating to me. I could increase the pain of all the hands on things we were doing in my school. In the second session Dillman did some head points. And I saw my first live neurological knockout.

Knockouts

Dillman knocked out one of the guests at the seminar without telling him anything about what was going to happen. And it was right beside me! I looked immediately at his eyes. His pupils were dilated. You can't fake this! And I was sitting right there to watch. Therefore I was hooked! 

Now there are always people who for some reason immediate yell "FAKE." I actually kinda feel sorry for these guys. Now I have ZERO interest in BJJ. Therefore I don't watch videos of it, or read about it. Why? Because I have a life! When something does not interest someone, for whatever reason it pathetic how they feel a need to attack it. Hey, don't we call them BULLIES? That seems to be against the basic core tenets of the martial arts. But I regress!

​Hence I needed to learn more!

As I said I was hooked. Monday morning I called Steve Stewart and asked how I could pursue more. He gave me the details and the journey began!

Getting A Black Belt

Now there are some in the arts who "claim" getting a Black Belt is not important to them. Perhaps they are right, maybe they are special types of people. However for most people, we need goals! Goals give life purpose and lead to fullfillment. I wanted to add to my rank, and get my Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt! 

Are you one of these people too? I can help you! Because of our current levels of technology today we can very easily offer this type of course online. So I give you the option of our Novice Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course.This is an all inclusive course, and there is nothing else you need to buy to complete it!

Right now for a limited time I am offer this at a FRACTION of its value! Why? Because I am trying to grow an organization globally, therefore I need to take down barriers. Follow the link below! The price will SHOCK you but it won't last forever!

Instructor Courses

​Plus if you are considering the idea of teaching Kyusho Jitsu or adding it to you system our Novice Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification may be right for you. It is also featured ​currently for a ridiculously low price! It is also all inclusive. Read more below!

If you have any questions feel free to comment below! Also you can subscribe and get notifications of our posts from the "Red Bell" at the bottom right corner. Don't miss this chance! It all began for me because I decided to go to a Kyusho Jitsu Seminar.

  3. 15 Principles Plus One of Kyusho Jitsu - This is perhaps the most popular eBook I have written to date. It takes you from the beginning principles in great deal all the way to those you need to become a "master of the art."
  4. Understanding Neurological Knockouts -  A very important eBook discussing the best pressure points to use in self defense to achieve a knockout. It also covers the reasons WHY this happens. It has been called "The Grey's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu."
  5. Kyusho Jitsu & the Secrets of the Octagon - This one may surprise you, however my senior students in Canada have been waiting for this one a long time.
