Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification

Martial Arts styles and systems survive because of students deciding to be become teachers keeping their art alive. Back in early 2016 I created the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance with just that purpose in mind. And so the Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification courses were developed and released to those who were interested.

And the response was excellent! Over the last 3 years I have certified many people to teach the art and science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu under the banner of the KJWA. But now it is time make the changes I spoke of from the beginning, and get this program into real forward action!

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification - Current Instructors

On July 15th 2019 the way in which I am certifying instructors will be changing.

These changes will not apply to those who have already either certified or have purchased one of more of the instructor certification courses and are in the process of their learning / grading.

In other words these current instructors and students are grandfathered into the new system.  

Kyusho Instructor Courses in Spain

Changes July 15th 2019

Anyone who purchases a Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course on or after July 15th 2019 will be required to pay a yearly licensing fee, as well as be required to submit a video examination to assure they are keeping up with their person learning. And that instructor certification credentials are issued because the martial artist wishes to spread the teaching of Kyusho Jitsu, and not just add to their list of credentials of their martial arts career. 

The real truth of the matter is that people do not tend to move unless they have "skin in the game" and many people only do the course for a "feather in the cap." Doing that for your personal Black Belt is OK. But instructors need to actively TEACH. 

And for the last 3 years I have been offering discounted prices on the 6 different levels of certification. Each level, beginning at Level One, which is where everyone starts is for teaching to a certain rank. 

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification

These courses will all be going to regular prices and further discounts will not be offered above the list price on the website.

 These changes also apply to those who take the Instructor Certification Courses are Kyusho Jitsu University too. 

Licensing Schedule

After July 15th 2019 when a potential instructor purchases their downloadable course or enrolls at KJU the journey begins. Included in the initial purchase is their 1st year of licensing. After 1 year there will be an annual licensing fee of $100 as well as the video update requirements mentioned above. 

This will assure the quality of our teaches as they represent the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance and not just themselves. And the highest standard of teaching must be maintained! All of this will be laid out at our Instructor Certification Page soon!

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

This may cause you to have questions on how this program will work. And all of this will be make clear and available soon.

Those who purchase their Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course(s) before July 15th will not be subject to the changes and fees listed above. 

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment here! Otherwise if you would like to learn more about the Level One Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification follow this LINK NOW. This is the BEST time to get started!

Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

* Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

I spend a lot of time on this blog going into great details on how Kyusho Jitsu and the Pressure Point systems of the human body work. And also why they work. The idea to to overcome the bad press and all the propaganda. So today we are going deep into what I am calling the Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System. In reality we are discussing the human nervous system. This is an extension of an article wrote a while back called Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes

Human Nervous System

The human nervous system is truly a wonder. This system is why we are who and what we are. It controls everything that is YOU from one central location, your brain.

Now I have seen a lot of evidence over the years that there is much more too us beyond the brain. However for the discussion today on the "Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System" I will leave that for another time. 

Science estimates many things about the "Central Nervous System" of people, and it is really just an estimation. The reason I say this is because they cannot lay it all out end to end and measure. Therefore math is use to draw their conclusions. 

They estimate that end to end there is over 90,000 miles of nerves running through one human body. And there the receptors and neurons number at least 100 billion.  

It is a delicate balance of many things, like water and various minerals, plus a PH balance to keep everything running smooth. We exist in a bio-electrical-mechanical suit.  

And this is such an over simplified explanation it is almost shameful.

* Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

So what then is the Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System? This is the part of the massive system discussed above that is of interest to us in the science of pressure point self defense. And what that is basically comes down to is the definition of a pressure point. 

What is a pressure point? This is a place on the body where a nerve ends, where one nerve crosses over top of another like in a "X" pattern. Or where a nerve splits and branches off like a "Y"

Pressure Points themselves are very small. The size of the head of a pin. However the areas of activation is much larger. The area of activation means the "striking" or "manipulating " area we need and use  in Kyusho Jitsu. 

Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System

There are 361 PLUS pressure points on the human body, all with their own characteristics and affects.

You can learn more about this from my book called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.

There are certain ways in which you attack a pressure point, and all of them vary. They respond to either being "pressed, rubbed or struck." 

And this is accomplished with something we call 2 Way Action. Yes at first this all seems overwhelming, however once you get a solid foundational understanding it does get easier.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Once you begin to get an understand of the basics, all falls into place.

The human body is a very complex entity and therefore very susceptible to outside forces.  We have an illusion of autonomy, however we are effected by much in our environment. 

A great example of this is 5g cellphone technology.

This is a very dangerous, untested technology they are implement globally. Here is a link to a video on the subject. Now what is humorous about all of this is there are people who will still insist that pressure points do not work.

I even had someone challenge me on the definition of a pressure point once. He said to me "there are pressure points where there are no nerves." When I asked him to name one he vanished. 

These are the idiots of the world, those with unfounded, un-researched opinions. But that is just life! Hopefully I covered this information with enough details to paint a clear picture for you!

HPPT Rape Prevention Course

HPPT Rape Prevention Course

HPPT Rape Prevention Course

I find it alarming that I actually need to come to my readers and student with this idea. Should I create a 4th Level in the Humane Pressure Point Tactics Course that would be called HPPT Rape Prevention Course?

Today I have become rather concerned over the idea that this has become a political subject, and because it has,  a lot of the ideas, teaching and information being discussed, is not only ridiculous, but also reckless and dangerous for women and men alike.

Why do I say this? Have you ever known anything a government or politically motivated group of people to do that was NOT self serving and an EPIC failure?  This current group of 3rd wave feminist are not interested in what is best for they group they claim to represent, but instead are simply looking to satisfy their addiction to power.  Therefore I believe this subject needs to be addressed properly!

A Short Video - Please watch.

HPPT Rape Prevention Course - Content

The HPPT Humane Pressure Point Tactics Courses have been very successful.  This is a 3 Level Instructor Certification Course designed with the hopes that the students will go out in the real world and teach what they have learned, with the support of the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance to the average person. 

And if you are not familiar with these courses do not let the term "humane" fool you. These courses are about real street self defense within the letter of the law so that the victims of violent crimes do not need to suffer more in the aftermath!

My question today. Do you see a need for such a course? Are you the type of person who would be interested in learning this and teaching it locally in your community? Do you have suggestions for content to be covered?

Do you believe their is a need to reeducate the general public on this topic?

In Conclusion

HPPT Rape Prevention Course CONCLUSION

The information and ideology begin pushed in colleges, universities and media on the subject I believe is very problematic.

As I stated in the video my reasons and thoughts. Therefore I believe it is time for the subject to be properly addressed.

What do you think? Leave me a comment below and let me know. What are your responses to those questions above? 

In conclusion I would very much value your input on this topic!


Humane Pressure Point Tactics Course. Real street wise self defense. I believe this is some of the most imprtant information out today!

Therefore if you fill out the form below I am going to send you  the first lesson of HPPT Humane Pressure Point Tactics Level One in video form absolutely FREE!.

Kyusho Jitsu Light Touch

Kyusho Jitsu Light Touch

Kyusho Jitsu Light Touch Knockouts

The MYTH of the Kyusho Jitsu Light Touch Knockout has been spread for as long as I can remember. It is fodder for the fire of Kyusho Jitsu not being "usable' on the street. However this is all misinformation and misunderstanding.

Therefore I think it is time to address this topic straight out.

Kyusho Jitsu Light Touch - Rumor Mill

I image this all began at a George Dillman seminar while he was doing one of the things he does best. Stress the importance of safety. Most people who study the martial arts need to go to work the next day and they certainly do not need an Emergency Room visit. 

As he often taught if you learn the science of pressure point self defense correctly you can setup the Uki and be able to perform a Kyusho Jitsu Light Touch Knockout. However at no time did he ever once say this was what you did on the streets.

But he did not expect his work to be so badly misinterpreted! Otherwise I know he would have drawn a BIG line for those who do not listen well. 

When you train hard and learn Kyusho properly you can replicate a GREAT result with little to no force. However you need to have a FULL understanding of the Principles of Kyusho Jitsu, like the Cycle of Destruction

Kyusho Jitsu Light Touch Knockouts - The Street

In real life, on the street you would hit for all it is worth. Within reason however as you are bound by laws, and also missing the target cannot be an option! But I am sure this is all self evident, right?

Why then the focus of light touch? I personally do not focus on it. I focus on Uki care. Below is a ST-05 knockout. Watch this and then keep reading. 

In the video I am "tapping" at ST-05. If I had hit him with even medium force I would have broken his jaw. And common sense tells you that this is not what you want to do to your training partner!

But what happens if I hit full power? 

Well ST-05 is the weakest part of the jaw bone. Underneath this bone is the Jugular Vein. The jaw protects this critical part of the cardio vascular system. So what can happen under heavy impact? The jaw bone can break at this point. and I mean break not fracture. Then it is possible to tear the Jugular Vein which will result in a bleed out and death. 

Now this is not likely, however it is possible. We do not know the health of someones body or bones when we use them as a partner. Caution must always be used! I am sure you are acquainted with "Murphy's Law"

In Conclusion

Kyusho Jitsu Light Touch CONCLUSION

Today people have a habit of "mocking" what they do not understand. And really this is very pathetic.

Especially in an industry that is supposed to be built on integrity. Personally when a person mocks someone or something i just tune them out. 

I like to draw my own conclusions based on learning. 

To me this was all self evident. and anytime I have needed my training I was certainly not doing a light touch. What is your experience here? I would love to hear. Comment via this link

Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions

Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions

* Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions

What inspired me to write a post today about Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions? Simple, it was a question asked of me on my June 1st Free Kyusho Club Webinar. What was the question? What pressure point can I strike to get out of a rear naked choke. 

The question while seemingly logical actually shows how far I have yet to go to educated people in the science of pressure point self defense. The answer to that question? The solution is tied to your root art. Plus from rear there is very little available to strike. And you have between 4-6 seconds before you are unconscious.  That is not much time!

There are solutions, and I do have some. But they are tied to my root of of Hapkido.

Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions #1


Pressure Points Don't Work on the Street
Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions

This is one of the great misconceptions which is why I have it listed here first. This is something that originated with a group of martial arts misfits, who consulted friends for advice. The truth is they are epic failures.

They tout that "gross motor skills" are the only thing that works and that Kyusho is all about fine motor skills. Sorry dudes, you are all clueless! 

The funny part is in the next breath they talk of how the ONLY effect street system is Krav Maga.

And guess what boys, everything they teach is based on fine motor skills. However with "proper" training, learning to control your emotions under stress all these fine motor skills work! But the issues people have is this requires WORK, something the "naysayers" are allergic too! 

If you are one who can't use pressure point strike on the street it is a training failure, not a pressure point failure! Train harder!

Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions #2


Kyusho Knockouts are not real.

This is another one of the great Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions.

Before you make judgment on anything, especially if you are going to talk about it, it is always best to do the work and learn first!

Someone once said to be that the ONLY way to knockout someone out was with "blunt trauma to the head."  So what happens in blunt trauma to the head? A concussion. This is swelling and bleeding of the brain that causes an unconscious state if sever enough due to a neurological reaction to the damage. 

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

And this can be replicated very easily by attacking the nervous system. This is why someone will pass-out from a damaged or broken bone. Also from a cut.  All knockout are neurological events. You can read more about the 3 kinds of Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts from this article.

Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions #3



Kyusho Jitsu teachers are CULT leaders and hypnotize their students.
Are Death Pressure Points Real?

This one is too ridiculous for words! But i have seen it a dozen times. Especially from those clowns at Bullshido. You know the self appointed "watchdog" group who self mandate was to try to destroy the lives of martial arts teacher they did not like because of their own low self image. I have NO RESPECT for people like this! 

Long before the current era of political assassination we see today or people who's views appose the "narrative" being destroyed, we had this self righteous group of martial arts armchair experts discussing things they knew nothing about.

Now I do not dispute their are martial arts cults out there, but to label something you do not understand is pathetic.

Rant off.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions CONCLUSION

There are many other Kyusho Pressure Point Misconceptions out there. But rather than accept the "good" opinions of those who do not know, educate yourself first!

As Mark Twain said "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.”

I see things in the martial arts world all the time I have questions about. However I do not talk in "authority" about them because I do not know anything about the subject. Educate yourself before you speak.

Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic Orbits

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic Orbits

Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic Orbits

One of the high level principles I teach is the one about the Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic Orbits. There are 2 different Microcosmic Orbits so today I shall take a look at both. These are very simple principles to understand, however their implementation is much more difficult.

Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic Orbits - Minor

The first on the list is the Kyusho Jitsu Minor Microcosmic Orbit. This is the internal connection between the Conception and Governor Vessels.  Both the vessels begin their energy or Chi flow from the pelvic area of the body and travel upward each ending inside of the mouth.

When the tongue is touching palate of the mouth, with the mouth closed the circuit is then complete and proper energy flow is happening. 

* Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic Orbits

Minor Microcosmic Orbit Activation

Activation is a very simple process to understand. But it take a lot of training to get the continued affect from it. 

If you apply a finger lock to someone, or a wrist lock with your month open you will get a certain result. And if you close your mouth, touch your tongue to the palate you will get a much stronger result. If you visualize like the image above, and see the Chi flow increase your results will once again increase.

Training this is to close your eyes, and visualize the Chi flow path. Done often enough, when you naturally touch your tongue to the palate the unconscious mind with associate this with the training and the increased Chi flow image it has been trained with.

The result is remarkable! 

Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic Orbits - Major

The Major Microcosmic orbit is the more powerful and more advanced of the Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic orbits. 

It is essentially a different application of the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle. Now in this case the time of day is not relevant Instead you focus on the direction of the energy flow in the meridian system. 

Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic Orbits

The Major Microcosmic orbit is the more powerful and more advanced of the Kyusho Jitsu Microcosmic orbits. 

It is essentially a different application of the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle. Now in this case the time of day is not relevant Instead you focus on the direction of the energy flow in the meridian system. 

Major Microcosmic Orbit - Activation

This is much more challenging! I suggest your become reasonably good at mediation before trying is one! 

Sitting in a meditative state you would focus on and visualize the chi flow in your body through the meridians in the proper order. The better you get at this the more Chi flow will develop. The final objective is to see both sides, continuously flowing. Then add healing colours.

As I said the application is very difficult. But the result is unbelievable! 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

As I have noted many times, mastering the science of pressure point self defense is not an easy task!  It takes time, and 100's of hours of study.

And the 15 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu are the cornerstone to success. I have an awesome video series on the 15 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu you can checkout here.

Kyusho Jitsu Schools

Kyusho Jitsu Schools

Kyusho Jitsu Schools

Martial Art Dojo's are everywhere! In my home town of Windsor Ontario Canada there must be 30 or so. And about 8 being full out commercial like my Dojo is. And Windsor is only 190,000 people! I have heard Toronto is over 450 commercial martial art schools. But when it comes to Pressure Point study Kyusho Jitsu Schools are a different thing. 

And there is a lot of room for instructors to expand into this program! Especially because it is NOT a FAD like other things Dojo's get involved with. Things like aerobic kickboxing or even the short term life of an MMA fighter.  Which on average is less than 18 months by the way.

Kyusho Jitsu Schools Near me?

One of the most frequently asked questions I get via email is, "are there any Kyusho Jitsu schools near me?"

And unfortunately the only answer I can usually give, especially in the USA is to go to George Dillman's website and have a look. I am working very hard to expand in the USA. But the numbers are very low, and there is so much opportunity. But no one cashes in! And this is a BIG opportunity! 

I have been asked over the years of creating a database of Kyusho Jitsu schools. But this is a daunting task, and the other organizations tend to be very paranoid and protective of their organizations. With over a million adults training in martial arts' world wide this is ridiculous! 

Therefore it is much better to work closely with motivated martial artists who are will to put in the time and effort to become Certified Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance teachers! From there we can make a solid database of REAL qualified Kyusho Jitsu Schools and teachers.

Kyusho Jitsu Schools - Study Group in Madrid Spain.

When I conducted my very first Kyusho Jitsu Study Groups at my Dojo in Canada I had not idea where it would lead me. I was ready to take on 12 students, for 1 3 hour session per month. I had 15 apply without any effort!

My Dojo was only a few years old and we were working very hard to bring in new people and really make our mark! I took 12 of the 15 students and added $720 per month to my bottom line each and every month. Plus my student retention rate for adults was less than 1% because of the additions of these classes! The industry average is over 10%!

And success running a martial art school is all about KEEPING students. I even have a book about it!

Become a Kyusho Jitsu Instructor

Over the years I have personally in the Dojo taught many excellent martial artist to the various instructor levels.

And I have a total of 6 levels. But for most people who are beginning this journey which is a step by step path you start at Level One. 

In these levels in which not only are you obtaining your own personal rank, if you do not already have it, and you are learning and qualifying for real success teaching Kyusho Jitsu Study groups or running seminars. 

Kyusho Jitsu Schools - RMATC 2018

And all done in the privacy of you own home or Dojo via distance learning. Plus you will more than makeup the cost of the program in your 1st month of teaching depending on what you charge each student. Currently in Canada we are charging $75 per month for the study group. And the most important part is direct support from me personally and my staff in Canada.

In Conclusion

Kyusho Jitsu Schools CONCLUSION

Deciding to become a Kyusho Jitsu teacher was one of the best things I even did personally in my 35 years in the martial arts.

Today in my Dojo Art Mason's Peaceful Warriors Martial Arts monthly Kyusho Jitsu study groups still run.

And the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance has some teachers world wide like Master Federico Asensio in Spain doing the same.

Pressure Points That Kill

Pressure Points That Kill

* Pressure Points that Kill

When I write an article or create a new book or video I research to see what people are interested in learning about. Pressure Points That Kill are one of those subject. I have already done articles related to this topic like the 3 Most Dangerous Pressure Points, or 5 Deadly Pressure Points. But the articles have never been complete. Today I am going to explain why and how you can really get the answers you are seeking. 

First to understand this you must realize that everything in the body is connected. Nothing is isolated from anything else. I once worked with a man who had a very bad heart attack after having some soup he was eating go down wrong. He had a coughing fit from it. Obviously he had heart problems. But people refuse to understand the connections internally.

Kyusho Jitsu has many "haters." And these are people who either feel "threatened" by the knowledge. Tried to learn and failed, or are just LAZY egotists.

And ironically that hatred effects their heart because of the reactions of the Triple Warmer meridian and its connection to the hypothalamus

* Pressure Points that Kill

Hatred can KILL YOU, just like a correctly placed, correctly implemented pressure point strike can also. But it is a complex subject.

Pressure Points That Kill - Should I teach this?

Now this article with get me emails about being careful about teaching this information. And the answer to this is YES I should teach this. Why? Because I have spent a lifetime researching people, how they think and why they do the things they do.

And keeping things, information from people is always a bad idea. Too bad the governments do not understand this! When you hide things, or make something "forbidden" you make people want it more. This is when you get someone who will misuse information. 

When you make it available, and given a a barrier to entry like having to actually work for it. Then you get the "right" people with the knowledge. Pressure Points that Kill is a classic example of this type of topic.

Deadly Pressure Points for Self Defense

* Deadly Pressure Points for Self Defense

With that in mind I decided to write a new book on the subject of pressure points that kill.

Below is a list of things the reader of the book would have to be to be successful in learning what I am teaching. 

This all new eBook releases July 1st!

Learning about Deadly Pressure Points

1.

The person or student would need to be a practicing martial artist with a solid foundation in their root art. Someone at the beginning of their martial art journey simply do not know enough about movement, how to correctly strike and use the tools required to get the job done. A beginner who wants to use pressure points for self defense but does not wish to put the time in required should look at HPPT. This is a simpler, yet effective solution to self defense

2.

Have a solid foundational understanding of the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu. Without this the knowledge in this new book us useless!

3.

A calmness within, the ability to perform under stress. This comes from hard work and proper training and no other way! 

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

You can, if need be, take someone life with correctly striking certain pressure points. You have a RIGHT to protect yourself with deadly force if required.

And a responsibility to do this also. Part of my student creed from my Dojo in Canada states. "I will ONLY fight to protect my life and the lives of others." I take this statement very seriously. 

As always I welcome your thought and comments. You may comment right here.

Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories

Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories

* Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories

I am really surprised I have not written about this topic before. Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories is in a way a  misleading term. However I am a Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point teacher applying the octagon theories to the science. So it works.

But Octagon Theories are not unique to Kyusho Jitsu. I was first introduced to these in 2000 and added this information to my root art of Hapkido. Subsequently changing it so much as to end up founded by own system because of it. 

About a year ago I wrote an eBook on applying basic Octagon Theories to the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu. I expected it would NOT be well received. But it was! So I recreated HPPT Humane Pressure Point Tactics Certification Courses based on this knowledge. Today I will explain the importance of this information.

Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories - Why is this Important?

That is the big question, why is this information important? Because for the science of pressure point self defense it allows better access to important pressure points, and provides better angles for attack. And this gives you a better result!

This is ancient information, based on the sword arts and updated to include the natural laws of both physics and biology. And not the modern day "political" version of these sciences.

Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories are based on the idea of "movement"  and the universal laws that govern movement. Moving first to reduce the affect and danger of an attack and then countering the attack. It works when integrated into any root martial art system, including ground work. 

But this is an advanced study and requires much training.

Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories - Origins of the Octagon

No matter what people like to think. Martial Arts training is the result of a time of peace, not warfare. Today, begin that war is a big profitable business there is much propaganda about war. It is also very common today to see soulless combat being taught as a martial art.

Most of it is honestly ineffective garbage well packaged for the consumer. The origins of the martial arts come from India and Buddhist monks who were disciples of the historical Buddha. They traveled to China and found the monks in poor physical health and therefore began to teach them the war arts, in a time of peace for health purposes. 

An excellent book to read on the history is the Bodhisattva Warrior which I will LINK HERE.

Philosophy of the Octagon

Being part of a Buddhist tradition the Octagon and its movement are based on a Buddhist teaching called the 8 Fold Path of Buddhism. it is believed if you follow the 8 fold path you can reduce the suffering of life, and make yourself SAFE!

It was this knowledge that lead to the ideas and theories of moment in the Octagon. And when you learn, understand and apply this movement you become SAFE from attack. 

But before we can get to the Noble 8 Fold Path we must discuss the 4 Noble Truths of life. Below is a brief explanation. This is an oversimplification, but will work for the purposes of what we are doing here. 

The 4 Nobel Truths

1) The Truth of Suffering. Life is suffering. We no matter how well we try to think and behave SUFFER.

2) The Truth of the Cause of Suffering. We suffer for many reasons but the one which is the root cause is desire. Desire is a good thing, however when it becomes an obsession because the desire is unfulfilled we suffer greatly. Then the tendency is to have actions that make the suffering worse.

* Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories

3) The Truth of the End of Suffering. Referred to in Buddhism as "Nirvana" this is the way life becomes when the suffering ends. I can talk for hours on what this means. But lets just say here that this is when life has REAL meaning.

4) The Truth of the PATH to end Suffering. The Path to Enlightenment, to the end of Suffering is the 8 Fold Path of Buddhism. This is the Octagon of life.. 

The Eight Fold Path

1) Right Understanding - Knowing that the 4 Noble Truths are indeed true and just the way life is. Life is a challenge to be overcome.

2) Right Thought - Thoughts become actions and then become things. Control of our thoughts is a must for a life with less suffering.

3) Right Speech - Speak only when your words are of value. Right speech means to avoid untruth, lies and gossip. These ways of speech only lead to more suffering. If you cannot speak the truth, then at least do not lie.

4) Right Conduct - To never fight to achieve self ends or do unnecessary harm. Right actions in all things. 

Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories


You will notice in the image of the Dharma Wheel that its layout is the same as the Octagon we use in training.

5) Right Livelihood - Your work in life needs to be of value to you and your family. If your job does not give your life meaning and is a benefit to your family and the community, then it is not the right job.

6) Right Mental Attitude or Effort - Avoid negative emotions like anger. These happen to us all but staying in the emotion is a choice. As Buddha said "you will not be punished for your anger, but by your anger."

7) Right Mindfulness - Having a clear sense of one’s mental state and bodily health and feelings.

8) Right Concentration - Using mediation or prayer to keep the mind clear and focused.

The Eight Fold Path is also known as the "Dharma Wheel."

Based on these teaching an understanding of movement was created. But much of this information was lost to the world as the martial arts became commercialized. There are today only a handful or us with this knowledge or teaching it. 

Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories

In Conclusion

Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Theories are a very deep learning. And it is beyond the scope of any article to teach it.

Plus if you choose to learn this, and add it to your root art as well as your Kyusho Jitsu training you must follow directions to the letter. 

If you add your own twist to things to soon, you will not get the results. This is the foundation on which everything I have been teaching for the last 19 years is based on.

Yesterday I released the first videos in a course on beginners Octagon Theories. I am expecting it to be about 4 videos in length and while the information will seem advanced to those who take the course, it is really only the beginning. 

Learn more about Kyusho Jitsu Octagon Principles and Theories HERE. Right now there is a special price. So do not wait!

Many of my students have purchased the book. And they have taken the HPPT Courses. Have you seen this information before? Please leave a comment here and let me know.

Kyusho Seasons of Life

Kyusho Seasons of Life

* Kyusho Seasons of Life

What am I referring to when I say "Kyusho Seasons of Life?" A long time ago people understood the seasons of life. Today, youth is valued higher than age, which is a critical error in thinking in my opinion. The season of winter is no longer honored in most cultures and what a sad situation that is. Wisdom comes from experience, not books, Facebook, Twitter or opinions. And the elderly are a wealth of wisdom and knowledge, if you listen.

Because Kyusho Jitsu operates in the 5 Element Theory from Taoism and Traditional Chinese Medicine the season because important.  But most people will never be able to understand or apply this knowledge. However, maybe a few will understand this article. Even if one person does, then I have done my job!

In our world, for much of the planet we have 4 season per year. In life because of the 5 Element Theory we have 5 seasons. And each season has an element. Let's take a deep look at all of this. 

Kyusho Seasons of Life - The Seasons

Spring - Wood

* Kyusho Seasons of Life

Spring is the Wood Element. And on a calendar begins with the Spring Equinox.

In life it is your birth. At this point in life your energy fields and meridian systems are growing and developing. 

It is a very difficult task to add an age to these seasons, because everyone is different. But for the sake of argument lets call this birth to 18. 


1st Summer - Fire

Summer begins at the Summer Solstice. This is logically people from lets say 18-25. Again there is not way to be accurate. This is the burning or fire within you to achieve and reproduce. That begins to slow down around the again 25. 

2nd Summer - Earth

The second summer comes when you begin to become rooted. Life takes on a less chaotic form and begins to settle down. Age wise this is from 25 to 40. Time frames today are very different due to the obsession with consumption we see today.

* Kyusho Seasons of Life

Autumn - Metal

The Autumn years of life begin around the age of 40 and run to about 60. Your direction in life changes and you begin to think on a more conservative manner. As you grow older you begin to see the need to save or conserve. Health begins to change and recovery from injuries slows down considerably.  If health has not been cared for in the younger years chronic illnesses begin to show. 

Winter - Water

* Kyusho Seasons of Life

I am entering the Winter of my life. Winter is 60 till death. And because our western culture has become so messed up people think this is a bad thing. It is not, it is a wonderful thing.  If you lived the seasons well winter becomes a peaceful time.

You understand how your body works and moves. And you feel changes in your health.

But only when you understand the season.  Old Man Winter is long and wise. I hope to reflect that wisdom.

Kyusho Seasons of Life -  Why does this matter?

So how closely have you been paying attention? Did you see this is the Cycle of Creation. Not all of Kyusho means destruction. This Kyusho Seasons of Life is about healing. And you cannot defend yourself if your body is in "dis-ease."

But in our fast moving, instant gratification world most have lost touch with this.  The Buddhist in my will give you the following quote from His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

* Kyusho Seasons of Life

The Kyusho Seasons of Life are about healing, as I have already said. And when you understand the Cycle of Creation and were you lie within it, you can then use this information to healing the body, keep the Chi growing and developing. And when the body is healthy, movement comes easy, and the body will flow within your martial arts training with ease and grace.

You can also see this in the levels of martial art mastery. When this is understood and internalized you have mastered the mind-body-spirit that we all strive for.

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

In Conclusion

Martial Arts training is not a tough guy competition. It is not a forum to show off your skills to others. If you think that way I feel bad for you. You miss the purpose.

It is a never ending journey of the self. A journey to find balance and peace within. Balance comes from proper training, proper life style and proper thinking. 

What season of life are you currently in? How do you see this time, yor season? Where are you in your martial arts training? I would love to hear. Please comment HERE.
