How Kyusho Works [Pressure Points]

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

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. 

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!

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

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

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.  

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! 

Knowledge and Ego

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. 

How Kyusho Works

Side Note

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

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.

Kyusho Jitsu Cycle of Emotions - Control Emotions

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.

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

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! Hvae you had any icredible teachers in your life?

Principles of Kyusho Jitsu

10 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu

What are the 10 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu? Martial Arts study, as well as Kyusho Jitsu can be looked at like a science. Therefore the 10 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu become paramount in the learning process. Let's take a look at this principles and break them down.

The 5 Novice Principles of Kyusho Jitsu

The Cycle of Destruction

The first 5 of the 10 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu are considered to be beginner or novice principles. However all the knowledge is built on these first five! Let take a look at them in more details

1) Attack Along the Meridian - This principles takes a look at attacking pressure points along the same meridian on the body. This is important because it causes both energy disruption in the meridian as well as confusing nerve input to the brain. 

2) Attack Using the Cycle of Destruction - This is one of the cornerstones of Kyusho Jitsu understanding and success. It helps the student to understand where to strike, and with which "tool." Here is a link to an article specifically on the Cycle of Destruction.

3) Attack Using Yin and Yang - This is a complex principle that center around the idea of striking to complete the Yin and Yang theory of attack. You can find some excellent information on this theory here!

4) Attack Using Correct Body Mechanics - This is one of my favorite principles. It is all about centering and controlling the attacker keeping him or her in your area of power. 

5) Attack Using Tempo - There is an old saying that if you can dance, you can fight! This is a look at the role of tempo in self defense. 

The 5 Advanced Principles of Kyusho Jitsu

Kyusho Jitsu Down Block

Next we have 5 advanced principle of Kyusho Jitsu. These all build and enhance the first 5! They are as follows.

6) Attack Using the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle - Understanding how the energy clock in the body works, the flow of energy and how to disrupt it.

7) Stances - Understanding the role of stances in martial art and Kyusho Jitsu self defense.

8) Colour - Colour has an effect on the human body. It can control moods and health. This is a very powerful principle!

9) Sound - The effect of sound on the body. This is one of the most devastating of Kyusho Jitsu Principles

10) The Cycle of Emotions - The Triple Warmer Meridian controls the emotions of the person. This is tied to the endocrine system. This is a powerful self defense principles!

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Even though there are Kyusho Jitsu Instructors who no longer teach these principles, while their choice, I believe is a BIG mistake.

These principles are a cornerstone of the study of the science of pressure point self defense.

Today teachers and teaching systems use "shortcuts" to get the job done. Like in my home province of Ontario Canada they no longer teach "cursive" writing to children.

Why? Safe money is my guess. However "cursive" writing helps develop the child's brain and this is PROVEN. Just like the 15 Principles Of Kyusho Jitsu assure the development of the Kyusho student. No matter what ANYONE says!

And time has proven their value! Once these are internalized you really no longer think about them.  Why? Because this is how the brain works!

Question, how much time have you spent learning these principles? I am going to offer you 2 FREE videos (one when you leave and the other below) to become proficient with Kyusho. Will you download the videos and watch them? Or are you a person of non action? Comment here!

Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

Shares

Pressure Point Self Defense

Self Defense is Under Attack

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

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

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

Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

Pressure Point Self Defense & Threat Levels

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

But first let's define self defense. 

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

Pressure Points Self Defense & Escalation Levels

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

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

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

Attacked Tonight on the Way Home

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

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

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

There are many very important aspects fo successful self defense. It is not just about techniques. Escalation is a very important part of any self defense training and you need a deep understanding of how it all works.

This is one reason I created the HPPT - Humane Pressure Point Tactics Certification Course. You can learn more here. And i have an eBook called Humane Kyusho Jitsu Beginners Guide you can checkout here

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

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

Let's do an FAQ on Humane Pressure Point Tactics!

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Question # 1

Who is this series of courses for? 

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

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics 

Question # 2

Is this only for Kyusho Jitsu Students?

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

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Question # 3

Can I teach after I certify?

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

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Question # 4

What does the first course cover?

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

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

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Question # 5

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

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

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

I hope this FAQ on HPPT Humane Pressure Point Tactics helps you out!

One question I do gets asked is from people with not enough time for an online course. Here is a possible solution for you!

Is there something about these courses I have not addressed you would like to know about? Please ask me here!

Dedicated Kyusho Student – Are you one?

Shares

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!

Dedicated Kyusho Student Skill #1

Desire: 

To be a Dedicated Kyusho Student 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!

Dedicated Kyusho Student Skill #2

Focus: 

In order to be a Dedicated Kyusho Student 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 class! Unless you are waiting for an emergency call like a sick family member or wife having a child. Put the phone away.

Dedicated Kyusho Student 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!

Dedicated Kyusho Student Skill #4

Goals. 

A Dedicated Kyusho Student learns to set a goal based on the above and work to reach it! We are goal oriented creatures and this gives what we do purpose!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

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!

These are not just skills related to the science of pressure point self defense but life success as well!

Are there any other skills you can think of I am missing here? Let me know in the comments linked here.

There is one other question you should ask yourself. "Am I still teachable?" Be honest with your answer. I know known many students in my Dojo who began to believe they had all the answers. That leads to a complete dead end.

Why I Love Kyusho Jitsu!

​Love Kyusho Jitsu

Why do I Love Kyusho Jitsu?  In a nutshell, because the learning just never stops! When I first began the Kyusho Jitsu journey back in the early 2000's I did not expect just how involved I would become in the study. And after about 16 years I am still learning new things!

I love Kyusho Jitsu - The Novice Study

Novice study was for me a big challenge. I had been out of school forever, and as a teenager I hated memory work! But I really did want to learn this so very badly. The things I saw Kyusho masters do was to me astounding. Plus in my first introduction to Kyusho I learned things that I could take home and apply to my root art of Hapkido immediately. The science of pressure point self defense was for me a "calling." I Love Kyusho Jitsu!

The Novice Kyusho Principles were pretty straight forward, things like Attack Using the Cycle of Destruction made sense right away because I could make it work. It was very exciting to do! Other things like the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle were more challenging because like I said I hated memory work! Plus at first I only had a superficial understanding, so I resisted it some. Today is different, I know it is one of the most important parts of the study!

That first year of Kyusho Jitsu, working my way towards my Black Belt was exciting. It cost me a lot of time and money too. I estimate I spent about $1500 with classes, travel and grading fees. But it was worth it! After the first year was finished I signed into the advanced program and my oldest son Curt joined the novice course.

I love Kyusho Jitsu - My Passion Grew

Over the years my passion grew and grew. Looking for ways to integrate it all into my root art. I decided I wanted to become an instructor and pursued certification in the system. I began to teach study groups and do seminars.  Today the passion continues to grow.

The Vegas Nerve

FYI - Benefits of Study

Today we face many different factors in our environment that affect our health negatively. As an example Alzheimer's Disease is on the rise globally. One of the causes of this is "aluminum." Today due to Geoengineering, which is FACT not FICTION and admitted by world governments is a major cause. Aluminum is used to help "fighting" the effects of environment change. 

Which is usual as no government has ever done anything right! However the good news is that "intellectual study" like Kyusho Jitsu can help with early onset of this terrible disease! Therefore not only is the study of the science of pressure point self defense important in self defense. It can also contribute to your brain health!

Below is information on how you can start to learn Kyusho FREE!


In Conclusion

Perhaps you are like me? Success in Kyusho Jitsu is like anything else it takes time, money and dedication. Plus getting good Kyusho information is a challenge. There is lots out there, but it lacks organization and support for optimum learning.

My mandate at the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is to tear down as many barriers to entry and success as possible. Check out the links below and see if the science of pressure point self defense is for you!

Kyusho Jitsu Facts

​Kyusho Jitsu Facts

The Gall Bladder Meridian

I have a daily segment on YouTube on Kyusho Jitsu Facts. I am sure some of you have seen it! But today I want to address a FACT when it comes to the science of pressure point self defense. And this FACT will upset some people. But if you don't piss someone off each day you are not doing your job!

Kyusho Jitsu is a SYSTEM

Yes, Kyusho Jitsu is a SYSTEM not a martial art! The success in Kyusho Jitsu is based on YOU having a solid foundation in some martial art of self defense system.

Why do I say this?

Because Kyusho does not teach you to block, strike, kick, sweep or throw! This is the job of your root art! Kyusho Jitsu will help you when studied and applied to make those things taught in your root art more effective.

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

Now lets look at a scenario. How often do you hear of someone in a car accident who rear ends the person in front blame their brakes? That is sometimes possible, ​however the grand FACT is that rear ending someone is an epic fail of your driving skills! Nothing else. That is why you get charged by the police! 

Kyusho Jitsu is no different. When you say you cannot "hit a small target like a pressure point," or "this is fine motor skills and you need gross skills" is not a Kyusho Jitsu Issue.

This is a root art and training FAIL.

Nothing else! But people do love to spend their time making excuses for their short coming, lack of ambitions or egotistical nature! 

Knowledge is not Power

That is right, knowledge is not power! Applied knowledge is power! If you want to be safe on the streets it requires training! Not just hitting a heavy bag or jumping into a ring. It requires a well rounded, all inclusive learning and training ​processes that includes everything below.

  1. A SOLID self defense oriented martial art root system
  2. The addition​ of the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu.
  3. An understanding of the attacker and the reasons it happens.
Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

After dedicating myself for 35 years to the pursue of self defense / martial arts knowledge I have made many discoveries. One is that often times martial artist like to lie to themselves and believe they know everything! And no one does!

Second they focus so much on "power" not understanding how power is really created! A great deal of what I see in the wild is constipated motion. Kyusho Jitsu will take you back to natural movement and a deep understanding of how power is created

Have a question? I am always happen to answer. Ask here.


Kyusho Jitsu Facts - Self Education

One of the sad Kyusho Jitsu Facts is there are not enough qualified Kyusho Jitsu Teachers in the world to help you. Therefore it becomes necessary to use various distance learning methods.

Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks

Shares

​Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks

Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks

Yes there are Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks and other small joint manipulations! Being that my root art and linage is Kul Sul Hapkido I am very familiar with the joint lock world. And I always figured we did them pretty well too! 

Then I got into Kyusho Jitsu and discovered how much more effective they could be! How did this happen? The understanding of fulcrum/lever activation and 2 Way Action. This is a cornerstone principle of a art called Small Circle JuJitsu. Understanding how this information is applied to Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks can increase the pain level 10 fold.

Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks & 2 Way Action

Even though 2 Way Action is not considered to be one of the principles of Kyusho Jitsu study it is certainly a major foundation. Quite simply without 2 way action pressure points do not work very well. This is the big understanding that many people miss while looking into the science of pressure point self defense. Here is a great video on 2 Way Action and Intention! 

Another important aspect of using Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks, therefore working to make them more PAINFUL and more effective is to have a deep understanding of the pressure points involved. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

When you understand this, then you can increase the affect of the Kyusho Jitsu Joint Lock.

Always remember on the street you are NOT looking for a submission! You are using the lock to CONTROL the attacker, or take joints apart so you can escape!

Watch the video above, this will certainly help you get a handle on 2 Way Action.

Does the video help you understand this concept of 2 Way Action? Please leave a comment and let me know either YES or No.

Secrets in your Kata

​Secrets in your Kata

secrets in your kata

Are there Secrets in your Kata? Is there some mystery we are missing each time we perform one? No there are no secrets, there is only vision and interpretation. You get from a Kata what you put into it. There are many different interpretations, some good, some poor, and some outstanding. After all, Kata it is only the understanding of movement and seeing opportunity. 

Now some believe that training in Kata is waste of time. These are often the same people who mock Kyusho Jitsu, and also love to rant about the McDojo. Who are these people? They are people with limited, closed minded thinking who do not look for ​opportunity. They want a predictable, predetermined outcome. But life is not like that.

​Secrets in your Kata

Are there Secrets in your Kata? So how does Kata interpretation work? There are "classic" interpretations of the movements, but in my opinion that is for the novice.

What we ultimately want is too see an interpretation happen from our own style and our own training. It should be an enlightening moment as we think of self defense, and then suddenly something makes sense.

Secrets in your Kata

When this happens you then have something ingrained in your subconscious that can be applied.

Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Humane Kyusho HURTS!

Humane Kyusho HURTS

Human Kyusho HURTS!

That is right Humane Kyusho HURTS!!! It hurts really bad! Don't confuse the word HUMANE with effectiveness. The word simply refers to "no permanent damage."  I made a post back a day or two ago about teaching this to the police. I got a comment stating, and I am paraphrasing "the police can't just push a point and control someone when they are on drugs or have a knife." No kidding? Really? I guess I better fly back to Canada and tell that to the police and military people I have worked with over the years eh? Yes I am being sarcastic.

Humane Kyusho is to control "low escalation" ​confrontations. Someone with a knife is a 10 out of 10 and deadly force is justified!  But lets get back on topic.

Pain is a great deterrent in many a situations. I can recall one night years ago being at a bar with my oldest son and one of the patrons being an asshole. Curt went outside for a smoke and the guy followed him. Soon I hear the yelp of pain and the wood-be ​tough guy was on his knees begging. Hence Humane Kyusho WORKS. It was funny because the man came back in over to me and stated he felt sorry for anyone who messed with Curt. ​Yeah me too. 

Humane Kyusho Jitsu - Attacking Joints

In low escalation situations, and some medium escalation as well attacking a joint is a great way to take charge of the situation and bring things back under control. This can also be done in a very non-intrusive looking manner if you train correctly and learn what you are doing.

How you react in a situation emotionally is also key to taking control. Research has been done on the effect of pain from a joint lock and it can, when applied correctly shut down up to 70% of the cognitive functioning of the brain. This research was conducted years ago by the Jay family in reference to their art of Small Circle JuJitsu. 

Here is a video sample of a control technique from HPPT taught to a group in Canada.

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

I have taught the HPPT Humane Pressure Point Tactics Courses to hundreds of people and different groups in Canada since I was first certified by Grand Master Steve Stewart in 2010.

Since that time I have updated the courses, and added many things to direct this more towards the civilian and less towards law enforcement. 

Below I am going to give you the opportunity to download the first lesson of HPPT Certification Level One Lesson 1 for FREE!
