Hapkido Kyusho Jitsu Connection

Hapkido Kyusho Jitsu Connection

* Hapkido Kyusho Jitsu Connection

My martial arts training began officially on November 10th 1984 in Windsor Ontario Canada as part of Chung Oh's School of Tae Kwon Do. Grand Master Oh was at this time a 7th Dan Black Belt in Hapkido as well as Tae Kwon Do.  The TKD element was really only the Hyung or Kata we learned bases on the ITF or International Tae Kwon Do Federation. GM Oh and General Choi were very close. But today I want to discuss the Hapkido Kyusho Jitsu Connection. 

My direct instructor was Master Philip Hollohan, who was an amazing teacher. I was with him for about 16 years before venturing out on own in July 2000.

What was the main reason? One day I met a man on the streets of Windsor who was dangerous. And there was no way I could handle this man alone. I found out the follow day from the Windsor Police who apprehended him after my call that was a dangerous psychotic

GM Mason 1997

This caused me many sleepless night and I wanted desperately to learn more and take my focus from sport, to real street self defense. So in 2000 I opened my own Dojo full-time in pursue of knowledge.

Hapkido Kyusho Jitsu Connection

The Hapkido Kyusho Jitsu Connection was not the first part of my learning when I went out on my own.  At first I met a Kempo Grand Master named Raymond Hayes. He spoke of the Octagon, which I found fascinating. Soke Hayes passed away several years ago. I miss the many conversions he and I had, as well as his wisdom and direction. 

But I did end up working directly with one of his former students who had pursued and attained a high rank in Kosho Ryu.  I worked with Grand Master Buchan intensively for about a year and incorporated all I learned into my root art. Changing if dramatically. 

While I only remained with GM Buchan for about a year he generously shared his knowledge. I departed due to a different direction we both had. He was looking for expand his organization and I was not willing to be absorbed into it.  I cannot give you a link to GM Buchan as it appears he is not longer teaching. He was a student of Hanshi Bruce Juchnik.

Hapkido Kyusho Jitsu Connection

After this time period around mid 2001 I attended a George Dillman Seminar in London Ontario, about 2 hours east of Windsor.  At this seminar I was very impressed with how the materials were presented and also that I could make it work very easily.

I was hooked and contacted seminar host Grand Master Steve Stewart and began formal Kyusho Jitsu training with him the following month. I worked directly with him for better than 10 years becoming a Level Five Kyusho Jitsu Instructor under him.

Grand Master Stewart is a 10th Dan in Kyusho Jitsu. Below is a video when he was awarded this honour. GM Stewart is an 8th Dan in American Kenpo under the late Grand Master Frank Trejo, another amazing man and great friend.. 

Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido

As I mentioned I have a thirst for learning. I took all the things I learned in Kyusho and Kosho, plus Small Circle Jujitsu and Systema and integrated them into my root art. Then in 2005 while talking with a high ranking Tae Kwon Do Master he pointed out to me he was not sure what we where training in any longer. This was the inspiration to name and register my eclectic art which is called Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido with the World Budo Alliance.

Today, in the Dojo that bears my name,  Kyusho Jitsu study groups are still going on today. High rank (4th Dan) in my root art does require the student to rank in Kyusho Jitsu also. My 2 ranking instructors in Canada are board members the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance as well as still training with Grand Master Stewart on a monthly basis.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Kyusho Jitsu is the missing part of every martial art. Learning Kyusho causes you to develop a deep understanding of your root art.

And it this development is revolutionary to your training. Please feel free to leave a comment below..

HPPT Self Defense Psychology

Shares

HPPT Self Defense Psychology

* HPPT Self Defense Psychology

No matter who tells you the contrary violent crime is on the rise. The government supplied statistics are deliberately misleading no matter which country you are living in. There is a reason too! Governments love to collect money from citizen but they prefer to put it into their own pockets rather than into services for the people. Enter the need for HPPT Self Defense Psychology

Most police forces are shrinking. And with today's "WOKE" world police are chasing things put on twitter rather than as an example the 23% increase in knife crimes in 2018 in the UK. You will hear a lot of positioning about "gun laws" like that would actually matter. Criminals do not care about laws, especially when the system has so many holes in it they get out anyways.

Here is a great example! Back several years ago a man went crazy on a bus in Canada and stabbed, cut a man head off and began to eat the body. The victims name was Tim McLean.

HPPT Self Defense Psychology: Are you prepared? 

Can you image the life long trauma of those passengers? Why do I bring this up? Because this man was released and walks the streets of I believe it is Manitoba today. Having been deemed "cured" by doctors.  And this is because of the mental illness of today's western liberal extremist! 

Tell me would you be prepared for something like this? If you have that tough guy attitude I see in the martial arts world today you would die in such circumstances. 

* HPPT Self Defense Psychology

You CANNOT be a tough guy with someone mentally disturbed.  And today not only has mental illness gone off the charts with the addiction problems in society,  but politics has created an envy based hate culture. Also enabling those with serious illness, illness that needs treatment not encouragement! This man in the crime above should have been deemed a "dangerous offender" and never released! But today politics makes criminals into victims! And victims into criminals! This is why real heads up Self Defense courses like HPPT is so needed.

And this problem is going to get worse. You have to understand you need more today in your training than just the traditional martial art / self defense knowledge.  

In Conclusion

HPPT Self Defense Psychology CONCLUSION

With that in mind I am going to recommend 2 books. These are being bundled together for a special price. I really want this information in everyone hands!

Follow this LINK to learn about The Psychology of Self Defense. This book explains the psychology of many attackers and well as training for it! The second is my Humane Kyusho Beginners Guide.  

The links will provide all the details you need. Also checkout this article on Humane Pressure Point Tactics. The article will offer you a free video too!

If you have any questions please feel free to comment below. Also I am adding a 4th Level to my Humane Pressure Point Tactics Course, and because of this I am going to run a special price on ALL levels. Follow the LINK below to read more.

Self Defense: Martial Artists Do Not Understand This

Shares

Self Defense: Martial Artists

* Self Defense: Martial Artists

Self Defense: Martial Artists do not understand this at all! What am I talking about? Most martial artists young and old alike do not understand the correlation between online privacy, security and self defense. Perhaps too may kicks to the head? Well no, that is not true I have been kicked in the head many time and I see the link wide and clear. I had a skull fracture from a spin hook kick back in 94. So what is it? Basically not preparing for the worst and hoping for the best! The issue is that "chance favors the prepared mind."

Self Defense: Martial Artists Do Not Understand Surveillance 

How does this all work? Self Defense: Martial Artists need to understand this!

First if you have a smartphone, no matter who makes it, you are under surveillance 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. And this is verifiable FACT.

Data Center

This is a Google Data Center in Georgia. Can you imagine how many computers are in this massive building running for the soul purpose of indexing your data?

There are 19 of these Google Data Centers Worldwide. And this is ONLY GOOGLE, not Facebook, Apply, Microsoft or Amazon to name a few.

They say that iPhone is better for security, but security and privacy have nothing directly to do with each other. iPhone is a little harder to hack. That is all! But I am not talking just about hacking here. Google and Facebook collect massive amounts of data about everyone online. Facebook follows you even if you do not have a Facebook account

Everything you say in the presence of your phone is recorded, indexed and stored in data centers. Your location is monitored all the time down to the meter. And sometimes even when you turn off location services you are still seen because some apps can turn it on and they do. Plus your camera takes picture both front and back without your knowledge or consent. All for the purposes of "Marketing." Sure......

For Advertising 

All this is done to feed you very targeted advertisements. If you and your significant other are talking about going somewhere, these corporations hear and then they can even do their job better. Deliver you more relevant ads.  They know where you are, what you are doing and where you plan to go. Plus if you use a debit or credit card they even have the details of what you purchase. They know everything about you. Likes, dislikes, speech, and habits. in terms of  Self Defense: Martial Artists how do you feel about this?

National Security [Bullshit]

And of course the NSA has access to all this data, as well as damn near every other government on the planet. But all this is only part of the equation. The surveillance in China should terrify you! And who do you think is helping them?

None of the information is properly secured. Some of these databases are even in plan text. This means other bad players beside the governments and these corporations can get access to this information. 

* Self Defense: Martial Artists

Companies, banks, governments, school are all hacked daily. 

Real Danger

Let's look at a scenario. You work hard and live in a nice area of your city. Like everyone else you have a Wifi router for your internet access and to save bandwidth your phone connects to the wifi too. Now this Wifi is registered internationally on a website called Wigle, plus a few others. The information is public and anyone can access it. Here is the LINK.  

Your phone is broadcasting to world exactly where you are! Your Wifi is broadcasting to the world too! Cell Towers pick this information up and forward it to databases. Your Wifi, phone and laptop each have a unique identifier called a MAC address.  This is register to you, and only you.

Some friends come over and you discuss going out for dinner.  The 4 of you decide on a place and off you go. Everyone has a cellphone therefore the conversation is recorded on 4 different devices, all tagged to your exact location and travel route. 

* Front Lines of Self Defense

If there is a bad player listening you just told him you are not home. This is like skywriting please come rob my house.

Plus if you end up going home early you just might walk in on this! No matter how tough you think you are because of your martial arts mastery this is all going to go BAD.

How things can go bad


But instead you end up at your favorite chain restaurant. You are hooked to your Wifi and you go on Facebook and tell all your friends your location and tag who you are with. Great, now how many hundreds or perhaps thousand of people can see where you are?

Of course everyone knows you are an accomplished martial artist because of your posts and pictures.

Better hope that one of these "friends" is not a nut-bag stalker who you just told where you are and now may decide to come and call you out! 

* Self Defense: Martial Artists

Big feather in his psycho cap to beat the hell out of you while his friends video this. Or perhaps some pervert "has a thing" for one of the ladies because she was careless with the pictures she posts. But everyone online are good honest people right? And you LOVE getting  those likes on your posts! That dopamine hit always makes your day!

So now any advantage you may have had in a self defense situation is gone because the attacker can know everything about you and the people with you.

And he does not even need to be an hacker to do this. This is nothing compared to the endless different possibilities or scenarios. And all because you feel complacent in your online presence and will not further education yourself about your online privacy and security.

You just tolerate this intolerable situation because you think there is nothing you can do about it. WRONG this much you can do.

In Conclusion

Self Defense: Martial Artists CONCLUSION

Please take all this information seriously.

Learn everything you can about the topic. And feel free to fact check me on all the above.

Once you are convinced learn all you can and go out and spread the word!

This is very serious stuff.  We need to be vigilant!

Life is hard enough without imjurty or loss of a loved one due to the insanity going on today. Be vigilant and prepare yourself now!

Problems with Kyusho Jitsu in 2020

Shares

Problems with Kyusho Jitsu

Problems with Kyusho Jitsu

What are the Problems with Kyusho Jitsu is facing in 2020? This article is purely editorial and only my opinion. However, these are the observations I have made in 2019 that I believe will come to a head and therefore affect Kyusho Jitsu / Pressure Point students and study in 2020.

Problems with Kyusho Jitsu - Dillman Retirement

Love him or hate him when it comes to the Martial Arts world Grand Master George Dillman has had a huge effect! As I am writing this article I just turned 60. This means I am now officially in the season of winter.  GM Dillman from my understanding is now officially retired. And even if he is not, it is down the pipe. Who will replace him? How can anyone replace him? No matter who is chosen the in fighting will begin! 

All you need to do is look at American Kenpo and what happened when Grand Master Parker passed away. Now I am not a "member" of DKI, however my Kyusho Jitsu rank does come from DKI. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out.

But working to unite Kyusho would be the smart idea! But I do not see it happen! 

Problems with Kyusho Jitsu - Inflated Egos

Now I admit I am on a soapbox here. BUT, it seems to me many Kyusho Jitsu teacher are more interested in showing off their skills than teaching pressure points. Why do I think this? Because people are leaving other organizations in droves, coming to me because I focus on the student and not my personal profile. For me it is about teaching. 

This "may" be good for me, but not Kyusho in the long run. I also see law suites coming because of this ego issue and Uki's being allowed to Free Fall after a Knockout Pressure Points strike that could result in serious spinal cord and neck injuries. And the Kyusho instructors will lose because this is GROSS NEGLIGENCE. 

And once this happens once we are going to be looking at legislation restricting what we do, ad that is ALL BAD.

Problems with Kyusho Jitsu - Apathy

​​"Tolerance and Apathy are the final virtues of a dying society" Aristotle

The 3rd of the Problems with Kyusho Jitsu is people today do not want to move. Now I have students who's dedication to the art blows my mind. And my thanks to them! However, many people today want a result but do not want to do work. And politically speaking that is the narrative today. Guaranteed outcome. But that ideology is simply not a reality.

I even wrote a lot of a book based on this. The book is called Body-Mind-Spirit Budo without the BS. Check it out when you have a moment.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

When it comes to the Problems with Kyusho Jitsu coming in 2020 I will say right now I hope I am 100 percent wrong on all accounts here!

Plus there are more concerns.And what bothers me most about all this is that each of these is political in nature. But I think all this needs to be said.

I would love to hear your comments, leave them here.

Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution

* Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution

The year 2020 is almost upon us! Seems to me the world was supposed to end at 2000 with Y2K? I know I was disappointed! But today let's talk about my Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution for the New Year! 

In 2020 I enter the Winter Season of Life. And as a long time student of the science of pressure point self defense I understand the concept behind the Seasons of Life.  We all get OLDER, but I hope wisdom also comes with age.

2020 will ring in a change of FOCUS for me in the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance. What is the change of focus? I want to leave a legacy within the KJWA and that is to create many highly qualified Masters & Grand Master to continue the teaching path long after I am gone.

Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution - How to Create Masters?

The first thing about becoming a master is you must have skin in the game. People who are looking for FREE never accomplish anything. When I first opened by Dojo I was the cheapest one in the county/city and while I got a lot of attentions. The students had zero dedication to training. 

When we began charging $170 per month everything changed and I created, along with my boys and empire. Now we have Free Kyusho Courses, but that is to allow people to judge if they are interested or now. 

And how will I create these masters? By promoting a Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution in like minded students, and getting them involved directly with me using the Kyusho Jitsu Coaching Program.

What does this mean? This means having all the information you need for whatever level you are currently working on right at your fingertips. And most importantly have monthly coach calls, 90 minutes in duration with me to make sure you understand everything. Hence, making sure all your questions are answered! 

Coaching is the Way to go!

And my New years Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution is to teach dedicated students how to be successful and hopefully over time to surpass what I have done with Kyusho Jitsu! So, now watch this short video and lets talk about coaching!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution CONCLUSION

Each program for each Kyusho Coaching Member is custom tailored for their individual needs! 

Therefore this  program is not for everyone. You need to be dedicated to the martial arts and personal improvement before you decide to do this!

There are many different perks along the way such as being invited to October 2020's RMATC! 

And If you think this program might be right for you then join me on my New Years Kyusho Jitsu Study Resolution and become the best you can possibly be!

Pressure Points Are Fine Motor Skills

Shares

Pressure Points Are Fine Motor Skills

Pressure Points Are Fine Motor Skills

I hear this almost everyday! Pressure Points Are Fine Motor Skills are therefore cannot, and will not work under the stress of a street attack or fight.  The statement is DEAD WRONG and simply propaganda. There is NO basis for fact unless you are talking about the untrained.

Saying this is simply and EXCUSE for your personal failure in training. [Know your Limitations]

So let me explain why. 

Fine Motor Skills vs. Gross Motor Skills

What are gross motor skills? They are "Gross motor skills involve movements of the large muscles of the arms, legs and torso."

What are fine motor skills? The definition is as follows. "Fine motor skills are the ability to make movements using the small muscles in our hands and wrists."  These are basic definitions but will do for the purpose of the article.

These definitions being given striking at a pressure point is therefore considered to be a fine motor skill. However by this definition so is punching, slapping etc. And by this definition all martial arts training including striking with the forearms and knees is fine motor skills and therefore cannot me done.

The problem is they all can be done. Because gross or fine motor skills are irrelevant, and training is the only object, the only path to success. One of the more detailed fine motor skills is using a firearm. Yet these are used in high stress situations daily!

Watch this short video for a detailed explain on why Pressure Points Are Fine Motor Skills and this does not matter!

In Conclusion

Pressure Points Are Fine Motor Skills CONCLUSION

I am sure by now you can see that the martial arts world has been sold a "bill of goods" telling them that only gross motor skills work today! 

They are trying to convince people that training is worthless and a waste of time. This is only true when society and the powers that be want to create a culture of sheep!

I have many concerns today about the martial arts world. Please follow this link and have a look at my latest eBook offering on the subject.

Kyusho: Know your Limitations

Shares

Kyusho: Know your Limitations

* Kyusho: Know your Limitations

Have you ever noticed that those who know the least argue the most? I know I see this almost on a daily basis. But, I cease communications anytime I encounter a "closet intellectual." Kyusho: Know your Limitations, it is good that these alleged martial artists do realize their potential as they try to impose their limited thinking on others. 

Why do I saw alleged? Because when someone is willing to argue a point to prove they are right I see holes in the stories. People lie to protect their lies. Recently I had some "closet intellectual" ask me about "fear" and how to control it. When someone asks this question I am always on guard.  This is usual a "baited" question. And in truth I am not the one to ask. You should be asking a psychologist if you have fear issues.

Pressure Points Don't Work on the Street

Now whenever someone comes with this question about fear we end up in the "pressure points don't work on the street" talk. This is where I cut communication and spam the address. Why? Because I do not have time for "closet intellectuals." 

Whatever you believe will become your reality, and the more limited your thinking the more limited your life will be. There are no exceptions. If you cannot target pressure points under stress this has nothing to do with pressure points. YOU ARE A FAILURE IN YOUR TRAINING

Kyusho: Know your Limitations!

Today we are dealing with some very BAD, limited thinking. Ideologies of envy and failure. "Oh this person has more than me, it is not fair." Do you know what a loser you must be to think this way? Make excuses for your lack of effort? Seriously! 

Failure is part of life and you will fail more than you will ever succeed. That is just life! And the most successful people in life,  be it in business, martial arts or any other aspect have failed more than 99% per of whiners will ever try!

If you have never failed it is because you have done nothing in life! 

Triple Warmer Overload

* Pressure Point TW-18 [Triple Warmer]

We have a serious problem in society today. Self Control is a thing of the past as people are ruled by their addiction to their emotions. Because you "feel" someway about something does not make it true or right.

And this addiction people have will always lead to more failure. Because the Triple Warmer Meridian is overactive. 

The reason is simple, under a high emotional state your ability to make an objective decision is gone. Instead you become easily manipulated by the narrative. Today people sound like robots as they spew out the current narrative they see on social media. 

Martial Art training is a remedy to this, but only if you actually quit making excuses and do the damn work! 

Check your Addictions!

So what are your addictions that are preventing you from succeed in Kyusho Jitsu, martial arts or anything else?

  1. How much time do you WASTE on Social Media like Facebook each day? Nothing wrong with using Social Media but the always being logged on is BAD. The average person wastes 144 minutes per day on Facebook. I limit myself to 10 minutes per day.
  2. Are you obsessed with politics? Have you lost friends over differences?
  3. Do you get very anger for no real reason? And do posts on social media upset your day? If yes stop reading them. I don't read my timeline. 
  4. Do you make excuses, blame others for your failures like the "left wing nutbags" tell you that you should?

If this is you, then perhaps it is time to forget the status quo and get back into the Dojo and training for REAL! Focus your MIND.

Stop the Excuses

Take a look at this image on the right. These are the pressure points on the right side of the head and neck.

The area of activation of each one is the size of an American Silver Dollar.

And there are a total of pressure points on each SIDE OF THE BODY!

Can you see why when some clown tells me that hitting pressure points is not possible I call him out as his training being an EPIC FAILURE?

* Pressure Points that Kill


Kyusho: Know your Limitations CONCLUSION

in Conclusion

Are you ready to stop making excuses in life?

Can you see whey I do not bother with these BAD THINKERS or "closet intellectuals" I speak of?  If you do the work pressure points WORK period!


No matter what some loser will tell you.

What is a closet intellectual? It is someone who knows little to nothing about a topic but their ego is so big they need to argue their expertise anyways. I'll bet today you know a lot of people like this!

Thank you for reading this article Kyusho: Know your Limitations. This is basically an editorial rant. Feel free to comment at the bottom of the article,

Learning Stages of Kyusho Jitsu

Shares

Learning Stages of Kyusho Jitsu

* Learning Stages of Kyusho Jitsu

I teach the science of pressure point self defense based on systems of learning. Or in other words a curriculum. The Learning Stages of Kyusho Jitsu are very well defined for anyone who gets involved in one of my Kyusho Home Study Course or Kyusho Jitsu University. And there is a reason for this. I focus on the way the mind learns and remembers.

Often times you will see Kyusho instruction that is all over the map. And there is also little actual information being taught. A lot of the time it is simply a "show" which makes the instructor look very good. How should learning be done?

Learning Stages of Kyusho Jitsu - Basics

You must crawl before you can walk and walk before you can run. Learning, the way the brain retains information needs to be structured. My novice or beginnings program is designed to give the student time to understand the basic principles of Kyusho. And these basics MUST BE TAUGHT and understood. 

Every time I see these bypassed the results are substandard. The learning stages of Kyusho Jitsu of the basics is below.

This is a lot of information. However none of it is cover in great depth until the student moves from Novice to Advanced. 

After the basic foundation is laid we can move onto more advanced study.

Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Study

* Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points


Alarm Points are the cornerstone of advanced Kyusho Jitsu Study

The advanced study is where we begin to take the basics and look at application. More information is also added in the from of another 5 principles. The memory work and theory from the novice course is built upon also. Review is critical for understanding!

The most important addition in my view is the learning of Alarm Points. These are almost like the a 16th Principle (I teach 15 Principles) and arguably the most important part of advanced learning. 

Development comes as small "enlightening" moments. You go from confusion and frustration to understanding. Suddenly things begin to make sense!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

There is a very clear path to success learning Kyusho Jitsu.

Budo and the 21st Century

Budo and the 21st Century

* Budo and the 21st Century

The martial arts world is a very different place from when I began on November 10th 1984. 35 years ago. As more and more children were being taught the arts began to change their focus. Today in 2019 a discussion about Budo and the 21st Century is long overdue.

What is Budo?

In a very loose definition Budo is the way of the warrior. However this is an over simplification of the term. A better way to state this is the path of the unification of the body, the mind and the spirit which results in a "whole" man. A man of great strength, virtue through actions and compassion.

The full path of Budo is based on the teaching of the 8 Fold Path of the historical Buddha

This path was also responsible for the movement we know of today as the Natural Laws of the Octagon.

<8 Budo and the 21st Century

Martial Arts & the Post Modern Era

The post modern era began after the second world war. While some will argue it began in the 1980 I tend to disagree. Post WWII was one of the most prosperous and joyous times in the Western Cultures. 

And it was after the 2nd World War that the martial arts made its first serious appearance in the west, most notably North America. And it did so via returning soldiers.

As time progressed and the "American Way" began to show itself in the training. The teaching of Budo began to diminish. In the 1960 the sport scene began to flourish with fighting greats such as Chuck Norris and Joe Lewis. Budo was still alive, but she was changing. And not changing for the better.

Obsession with Sport

The martial arts world today has abandoned the path of Budo in favor of money and short term fame. Fans cheer for blood as fighters addicted to adrenaline beat each other to a blood pulp. Cause damage that will last to the grave. And get cheers, and are adored by clueless fans thinking this is entertainment. 

* Budo and the 21st Century

Welcome to Budo and the 21st Century! The current face of the martial arts world. Blood-lust and barbarianism all endorsed and promoted like it is good clean fun. Sorry I do not see any value in this. 

Do you see anything that is:

  1. Right action?
  2. Or the Right intention?
  3. Right conduct?

Or is this simply a world once based on values, who abandoned all for the thrill of the moment, violence for the sake of violence?  Only proving how stupid people can really be when they smell money and fame? And yet we wonder why there is so much violence on our streets, especially with our youth. Truth is self evident.

Martial Arts is supposed to teach real values, improve society and create a better world of peace. I think Martial Arts in the post modern era is an epic FAIL, and Budo in the 21st Century needs to be revisited. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Can this path be altered? Can the martial arts world go back to a time when we stood for something important, something better? Of course we can. But the effort must come from each martial artist. 

Each teacher to spread the correct path of Budo to not just themselves and their students. But my being an example in life of what is right for others to follow.

Martial Arts Training Body – Mind – Spirit

Shares

Martial Arts Training

martial arts training

The martial arts world has changed so very much since I was in my youth and began the journey.  Now this is only opinion, based on what I think. That does not mean I am right or this is true. My ego is not big enough to assume I am right.  So today we will discuss a little martial arts training, the body - mind and spirit.

Martial Arts Training - Focus


Today the focus of martial arts training seems to be on the BODY. I look at some of the amazing physical feats people can perform. I think this may have been part of the natural evolution. And self improvement requires great disciple. So these acrobatic feats, feats of strength and endurance etc are impressive.

But training beyond this seems to not exist. Why do I think this? Because many have said this to me over the last few years. Looking to see if I see it too. Martial Arts training has changed, but it is for the better?

Missing Links of Training

yusho Jitsu has been maligned for years. Actually I think it is a personal attack on George Dillman more then Kyusho. But again I could be dead wrong.  But one reason I see is that Kyusho is not a physical pursuit and people think it should be.  

It is a study of the mind. And honestly not everyone can do it. And today that statement will get me attacked. But it would not be the first time. 

* Martial Arts Training


Not all people are able to do all things. That is not a reflection on them. I would make a terrible musician. Others are brilliant. This is called life and no ammount of political bullshit can change this. 

The issue however is that when someone does not realize that Kyusho is an intellectual entity, then they tend to just mock what they think they see. This is also goes hand in hand when we only focus on physical training and not mental training, expanding the mind. Our minds close and we become very opinionated.

Time has NO MERCY


The big issue with this focus on intense physical training is it is not sustainable! No matter what you feel about that. The body wears out, especially when you use it hard and without rest.  When we are young we never believe we will one day we will be old. That the body will falter and betray us. But time has no mercy.

I have a 5th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo that I typically do not talk about. The reason I bring this up is I also did all the high, jumping flying fancy kicks. Today as I approach the winter of my life I have bad hips, bad knees and a severed hamstring. But the instructors in TKD do not tell the students what they have to look forward too! And this does not include the head injuries of today's competition!

* Martial Arts Training

And sorry TKD people, there is much more to martial arts than fancy kicks!

Sometimes I wish I could grab the younger generation of martial artist and shake them. Tell them "your training is not even close to being finished."  Tell them to stop mocking what they are not mature enough to understand.  But I know they will not hear me!  

Secrets Kept

Many things have been kept from us by the masters of old. I have been lucky to have had people who wish to share these knowledge's with me. Things like Kyusho Jitsu and Octagon Theory.  Without this kind of information there cannot be a connection from the body to mind and then the spirit. And that is the ultimate goal.  If the mind is not properly exercised, then you only have the body-mind connection. And this connection is reserved only for muscle memory type of improvement.

What other issues come from this incomplete training? Loss of mental focus, inability to control emotions, and tendency to fall for extreme views.  Education today has become indoctrination in a viewpoint, with nothing of substance there.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Bruce Lee's quote "all knowledge is self knowledge." echoes in my mind. This is one of the greatest truths ever spoken. And martial arts needs to refocus on the Body - Mind - Spirit of training. Change its direction to what matters in life.

Hopefully this will happen in time.  Martial Arts training came from Buddhism, and the quest for self knowledge. 

Self knowledge is not about egotism, barbarianism and extreme views.

It is about the balance of the body, the mind and the spirit. But the path has no destination. It is the journey that matters. I welcome your comment below. If you are new to the science of pressure point self defense checkout my FREE Courses Here!
