Problems with Kyusho Jitsu in 2020


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


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


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


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!

Learning Stages of Kyusho Jitsu


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.

There is nothing wrong with looking ahead to see what is coming down the road, as long as you keep focused on the work that must be done. 

How do you begin?

Most people will opt in for one of my FREE Kyusho Courses. And I suggest everyone do this! However if you want serious learning and information you need to grab my Novice Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course. This course has been around about 10 years now, and is highly acclaimed by its graduates. 

Any comments or questions please leave them here. And if you have a moment checkout my Kyusho Coaching Program! This might be perfect for your learning.

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.

Thank you for reading Budo and the 21st Century. Please comment here

My new eBook "Mind-Body-Spirit Budo without the BS" will be available shortly or perhaps is already available. Follow this LINK to learn more.

Martial Arts Training Body – Mind – Spirit


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!

Why Pressure Point Study Matters Today


Pressure Point Study

*  Pressure Point Study

Why does Pressure Point Study matter more than ever before today? What makes it critical? Let's examine this idea and see what you think.

Bruce Lee proved to the world that size does not matter. He was about 5'6" of just amazing. And since that time many greats of the woman's world of martial arts have proven this also. Women like Kathy Long.  The only problem with the "opinions" the masses have on these amazing martial artists is they put too much consideration into their physical fitness levels.

And these levels cannot be maintained throughout life. 

Pressure Point Study - Getting Better with Age

When trained properly, in a "complete" or as complete as possible a martial art system, age will not matter, size will not matter, physical fitness levels will no longer matter.  However the issue is that there are very few arts taught today that are even close to what I am talking about.

And sorry to all of those who "think" high fitness levels can be maintained. You are dead wrong. And when you can no longer train that way because of age, health or injury your body will begin the process of packing on weight to protect itself. This is the reason many great martial artist will suffer from weight issues later in life. 

Benefits of Kyusho Jitsu Training

Martial arts training is Body Mind and Spirit.

Kyusho Jitsu is an applied intellectual study of the working of the nervous system of the human body.

Knowledge Kept from Us

The masters of old kept a lot of their knowledge hidden from western eyes. And I do not blame them either! Things like movement in the Octagon and Pressure Points were removed from their teaching. 

Were the arts taught still useful? Yes, especially when it comes to sport. However without adding the missing knowledge street defense depends far to heavily on fitness. And to my mind that makes them FAILURES. You are far more likely to be assaulted at 55 and a little overweight, than at 25 and the top of you game.

And the criminal element in society is not looking for a fight, they are looking for a target! Someone easy to handle and likely not to resist too much. 

Pressure Points Don't Work 

There are many uneducated people in the martial arts world today who will say pressure points don't work.

Why do I say uneducated? Because today people love to give strong negative opinions on things they know absolutely nothing about. 

*Painful Face Pressure Points

But this kind of egotism is the result of learning incomplete martial art system. Today many martial arts do not know the timeless "tenets" that they should. And while I am 100% in favor of free speech, and if people wish to talk in authority about things they know nothing about that is up to them. However I will call them on their bullshit.

If you have not studied in earnest with a qualified Kyusho Jitsu Master for a least a year, you do not know your ass from a hole in the ground. If you could not make a pressure point strike work, that is a FAILURE of your root art training. 

These are the facts and facts do not care about your feelings.

In Conclusion

Pressure Point Study CONCLUSION

Kyusho Jitsu training, and I mean really getting into the study can help to make you ageless. It can help turn back the hands of time.

Plus if an attacker sees you and decides you are going to be his next victim, he is in for the shock of his life. 

You comments are welcome here.

Martial Art Defensive Tactics


Martial Art Defensive Tactics

* Martial Art Defensive Tactics

My main focus when it comes to martial arts is self defense. I have no interest in the sport aspects, not that sport is necessarily a bad thing. However today in the martial art world the focus has come off Martial Art Defensive Tactics in favor of other, far less effective ideas and purposes. 

Why is Martial Art Defensive Tactics so important? Because the best defense is not the best offense. That does apply in a ring, but it does not apply when someone has a knife and is thinking about ending your life. 

Martial Art Defensive Tactics - Let me elaborate

Successful self defense depends on many different things. One of the most important is your ability to "respond" to a situation, not just react! Response comes from being in control of your mind, which is stressed in the idea that martial arts is a body-mind-spirit journey. When you are governed by your emotions you are destine to lose because you are not going to "counter" what is happening. You become ridged and make a easy target or victim.

And today most martial arts are being taught from an aggressive standpoint. Which is why so many people fail in self defense situations. This is just bad from so many angles I won't even address them in this article.

Defensive Tactics

What are defensive tactics? Let's take a look at some samples. 

  • Communication - This is number one! Can you de-escalate the situation?
  • What part of my environment can I use for my advantage? 
  • Are there other players I am not yet aware of?
  • What escalation point are we at in this? What is the real threat level?

All of the above must be decided in an instant! None of this is included in most martial art training today!

What do you need? The foundation is training in a SOLID defense focused root art. There is no point is naming styles as this has now become completely dependent on the instructor and what their goals and focus is. 

Second is the addition of the pressure point science known as Kyusho Jitsu. This system of study helps you to make your defense root martial art more effective! It increased your abilility to use martial art defensive tactics to great efficiency.

In Conclusion

Chance favors the prepared mind. Not properly training is a big mistake.

Thinking you know what the reality of the street is, is also a big mistake!

Front Lines of Self Defense


Front Lines of Self Defense

* Front Lines of Self Defense

Self Defense is one of the most misunderstood topics in the martial arts world and the population in general. It is strewn with misconceptions and apathy. And speaking of apathy a courses I was planning for 2020 on Rape Prevention fell to ZERO interest from the community. Therefore I have shelved it. So what do I mean by Front Lines of Self Defense?

I have been in the martial arts world now for over 35 years, most of which has been on a full time basis. I have been teaching for about 32 of that time. Maybe more, I really have lost track of time. My passion during these days has been self defense. While I did compete for about 8 years I found no reward in it. Trophies, which I had lots of, where simply no interest.

Front Lines of Self Defense

The face of self defense has changed dramatically of the last 35 years. it was once pretty straight forward. If you lived in a civilized country the odds of attack were low, as long as you stayed out of certain areas, and the streets were reasonably safe.

Today we have far more to consider. Our children our bullied in the school system and online sometimes up to the point of taking their own lives. Mental illness is everywhere in people with extreme views turning violent if someone disagrees with them.

Free speech is all but gone with anyone apposing the narrative being silenced.  Therefore discussing the problem becomes more complicated. And we have drug addiction to opiates  at record levels. 

And our PRIVACY on and offline is now GONE because of bold faced lies and manipulation during the Bush era and 911.

Without privacy, no matter what any lying politician says you LOSE your security!  Remember National Security is secure for the STATE, not the individual! 

* Front Lines of Self Defense

Why should you care about your privacy?

Referencing all of the issues above, there is only one you can do something about.  But will you do anything other than complain? The lost of privacy is perhaps the most dangerous of all of the above issues. Why is that? Because it makes you an easy target for someone with malevolent intentions. 

And because surveillance is so complete, these malevolent forces do not even need advanced computer skills to take advantage of the information they have easy access you and destroy your life!

Let take a look at a scenario. And this is one of a possible 1000 examples!

Result of loss or Privacy 

* Security Privacy Self Defense [Martial Arts]

You love Facebook. Even people who say they hate Facebook are always logged on and seen "online" constantly throughout their day.

You decide you wish to go out that night with the "significant other", and perhaps your children. 

You have 3000 people on your friends list. Wow you are popular! But the problem is you do not know any of them personally. If you are the average person you know about 150 people in real life.  One of these 3000 lives in your town and is a person of "questionable ethics."

So you head out to a restaurant with your family. And because Facebook is such an important part of your life you decide to "check in" so all your friends know you are out for a good time with the family! Seems pretty innocent, right? Everyone does this, right?

But your Facebook stalker now knows you are out. And he knows where you live! It is on Facebook after all! And if it is kept private you can easily be tracked via your home Wifi and IP address!

Now is his opportunity to grab his buddies and do what he has done a dozen time this year! They are going to rob your home!

Oh.... But the "significant other" is not feeling well, so you decide to go home early. And you walk in on these thugs in the process.  The shock overwhelms you, the violation of your home is shocking. You become angry and rightfully so! 

But you are a solid martial artist with many in ring championships! You can handle these clowns! Problem is you are DEAD WRONG!!!

Your Errors in Privacy

* Front Lines of Self Defense

First your Facebook "friend" knows everything about you! And you know nothing about him! You believe you are prepared but you are NOT! And your Facebook friend is now on STRIKE THREE with authorities. He is now looking at life in prison for his next offense! Now he has nothing to lose and has no plans of spending his life in prison. 

And this is all because you did not know where the Front Lines of Self Defense are located! The apathy you have to your privacy has caused a dissaster in your life and that of your families. 

Front Lines of Self Defense

What are the Front Lines of Self Defense. Simply put it is securing your online presence, all of it from those who have any interest in this data! And today your data is the number one commodity in the world. More valuable than oil! 

That should scare the hell out of you!

And how much of your data is seen today? ALL OF IT.  Every keys stroke you make on your laptop or PC. And every word you utter in front of your smartphone. Plus every place you go with your phone. it can even tell how many steps you take!

And this not "conspiracy theory" this is research able and admitted FACT!

All of the information that goes down the pipes of the internet, no matter where you live is collected by the NSA. And as good as they are at hacking and collecting data, they do NOTHING to secure it! It is not even encrypted on their hard drives. 

The issues is EPIC in proportion!

Front Lines of Self Defense - Solutions

The fact that 1984 is NOW for our world and that the "internet of things" has arrived which its only purpose is collection of data. Plus with 5g on the way to every city, will make this data collection more efficient and faster There is nothing anyone can do any longer to stop it.

But you can secure your life and work to become anonymous online!


Front lines of Self Defense CONCLUSION
