So today I ask a question? What is your Kyusho Jitsu experience level? And why am I asking this question? There are several reasons I am asking. But the one I am aiming at today is, "How can I help you?"
Without the knowledge of someones experience it is difficult to give them information that will truly benefit them. There is NOTHING wrong with review! But how many times can you review the same materials and still keep motivated?
Experience in Kyusho Jitsu can take many different paths. There are people out their who's experience focuses on the "show" aspects of Kyusho Jitsu. And there is nothing wrong with that! Myself I focus on the self defense aspects. The reason is I feel it is the most important!
Kyusho Jitsu Experience Levels
You can breakdown the teaching of Kyusho Jitsu into 2 main categories. The first one being from the "eastern" martial art aspect. And the second the "western" medical aspect. Both are excellent methods!
Personally I do both! The reason that I do was my Kyusho Jitsu teacher GM Steve Stewart. The reason is simple. Before he became the operator of a full time Dojo called Steve Stewart's Modern Martial Arts in London Ontario he was in the medical field. His knowledge of human anatomy was incredible! In later years he also became of Doctor of Acupuncture. He encouraged me in all aspects, Recently he sent me a message saying he was very proud of what I am doing here.
His methods of teaching and enthusiasm rubbed off on me. So I have tailored my programs to teach both sides.
Martial Arts Tradition
When I first created the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance, which is mandated to spread the "teachings" of the science of pressure point self defense one of the first members asked me a question.
"Sir I am a member of KI, is this a problem?"
The question I really appreciated! And this student is still with me! Why appreciate the question? Because the more the student learns, the better you become. And everyone of us has something different to offer. Or it is offered in a different way! The answer of course was "no problem."
Thank you for reading! Experience is one of the greatest teachers and it is always beneficial too seek experienced people for your instruction.
Kyusho Jitsu is an amazing and fun journey! Feel free to comment here also.
Updated Editorial: While surfing the web the other day checking on my name online I found a "new" write up on Bullshido Forums. First my thanks to these clowns for the free publicity. However I must ask the question. Why has the martial arts world evolved to this? Has it become so pathetic that YOU feel you need "internet children" as watchdogs for an industry?
This type of information today is the reason for so many issues in the world. Putting value in something because it "claims" to be an authority rather than using you own common sense. It is all ego and very pathetic.
The ONLY Bullshido I see on the net in martial arts is BULLSHIDO themselves.
However I did enjoy the write up as it was only negative in the sense that they call me a fraud because I know George Dillman and because I have spoken of No Touch Knockouts which I have always said have no application. But they don't research, just make noise.
Kyusho Jitsu and/or Martial Arts experience comes with hard training and time. There is not other way! #kyusho #martialarts

Other posts on Pressure Points You May Have Missed!
The science of pressure point self defense is an amazing way to enhance your martial art and martial art study no matter what style you currently train in. The issue is Locating Kyusho Jitsu Instructors! Why is this so? Because when the arts came from the far east they had already been watered down for teaching of children. Therefore the pressure point sciences were not being taught! Techniques had been modified for sport and safety. Not to mention WWII.
There are many very talented and knowledgeable people in the world teaching Kyusho Jitsu. But locating Kyusho Jitsu Instructors is difficult because they are only maybe 1/10 of 1% of the martial art world population. Perhaps even less.
Locating Kyusho Jitsu Instructors - KJWA
When I created the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance back in 2016 the purpose was to spread the teachings of the science of pressure point self defense to as many countries and regions as possible. Today we have Certified Instructors all over the world. Recently 2 of our instructors in Europe and the UK graded and promoted to their next level.
Sensei Sven Hock Level 3 Certified Instructor - Germany
Sensei Billy Clark Level 2 Certified Instructor - Scotland
Locating Kyusho Jitsu Instructors - Becoming One Yourself
There are many reasons to consider the idea of becoming a Certified Kyusho Jitsu Instructor with us at the KJWA. Below is a list of some of the benefits!
Dojo Owners - This is a great way to retain adult and teenage students. One of the biggest challenges to teaching martial arts is keeping students motivated to come to training! By either adding Kyusho Jitsu to the system, or teaching separate classes in the art you will increase retention!
Make some extra cash - How you teach Kyusho Jitsu is up to you. However I always suggest adding it to the system and charging extra for classes. I have been doing this in my Canadian Dojo for 15 years!
Teach Seminars in your city, town, country. There are NO restrictions like other organizations have!
Create self defense classes for you community
And the list goes on!
You also get unprecedented support on this journey from me personally, Grand Master Art Mason. I will personally answer any questions and support you on this journey!
If becoming a Certified KJWA Instructor is something you think might be of interest to you then keep reading.
I have some information below you will definitely be interested in!
If you have any questions you can comment here, or the "chat" button in the bottom right of your screen
Becoming a Certified Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance Instructor
I have made things as easy as possible for someone who wishes to get started on becoming a Certified Kyusho Jitsu Instructor. Now there are a total of 6 levels, which is really a lifetime of study and opportunity. But like anything else we go one step at a time!
The first is our Level One Instructor Certification Course. This like all 6 Courses is a downloadable product so you can study at your leisure. Once you feel ready to certify there is an exam. Certificates of promotion and graduation are issued also! The cost of this course is a steal at $997! It would typically cost you about $1200 to do this in my Dojo in Canada!
Now if you are looking to pursue a serious Kyusho Jitsu education but are not interested in becoming an instructor we also have a Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Series. Like the instructor courses (which include all in this course plus instructor training) these may be just what you are looking for!

I spend every morning on a mission.The first thing I do is check the stats for all of my website. And this includes seeing what people are searching for when it comes to the science of pressure point self defense. Today someone search "Kyusho Jitsu Debunked." But they did spell debunked wrong. Which is actually one reason for the article,
Kyusho Jitsu Debunked
Today there is a trend in entertainment and society to want to "debunk" things. Personally I think it is pathetic. There is even a TV show dedicated to this! And they have been caught falsifying their results! So am I against this idea of debunking? No, I am not, but do the damn work yourself! Stop being influenced by people with agendas.
Over the years I have watched many political attempts by martial artists, news media and supposed "watchdog" sites like Bullshido try to debunk Kyusho Jitsu. Sorry guys but any claim of Kyusho Jitsu Debunkedis a false one! They setup circumstances under their full control to try to prove a point. Debunking MUST be done with a neutral mind, one without an opinion as to the outcome. People are also great for their misinterpretation of results in order to further their opinions and sooth their ego.
I recall one such interview years ago with a Kyusho Master and the local news media. As he was demonstrating how a knockout worked and "tapped" the woman reporter at ST-05 her response was "of course I am dizzy you hit me in the head." And the stupid public bought this as Kyusho Jitsu Debunked!
Brilliant of the news to send a woman, and a great misinterpretation of what Kyusho Jitsu is all about! Same with the FARCE from the once great magazine turned political tablet National Geographic. The same magazine that stated "vampires are possibly real" enabling a group of people with a mental disorder.
Kyusho Jitsu Debunked - Do the Work
Are you wondering just how real the science of pressure point self defense is? Then OPEN your mind and do the work! I know doing the world is against the current way of thinking in the 21st century, but that is just how life really is! Decide things for yourself after looking at all the different possibilities.
Approach people and learning as if the person you are speaking with might just know something that you do not know and therefore there is a great opportunity to learn! Most people are not listening just waiting for their turn to talk. Facebook is proof of how much people want to force opinions on others.
Today people love to have an express opinions on things they know ZERO about! It has become like a illness.
Always go to the people who know for information you need, not the wannabees!
I know I never learned anything while I was talking. If you have any questions about this article of on Kyusho Jitsu in general please feel free to leave a comment here.

UPDATED June 1st 2020. What would you do if you were attacked tonight on the way home? What if your wife and kids were with you? Have you considered this?
When you’re walking to your car after a night out, after a movie or dinner, do you feel safe and confident? Or do you worry about the shadows in the corner? Maybe someone lurking behind the next car or the trash bin? If you do you’re not alone! Thousands of people every DAY are attacked on their way to their car in a parking lot or garage.
How about at work? Are there other employees that hassle you on a daily basis, sometimes threatening violence? Or maybe you work with customers all day, what happens when they get angry because things are not going their way, or maybe they’ve had too much to drink and are just looking to take their bad day out on someone… again these sort of things happen every day!
When an attack happens there is a trigger that goes off in our bodies call the “Fight or Flight” reflex. You either freeze on the spot becoming completely helpless or you act upon the situation. The majority of people freeze, it’s a natural response especially when most people have never had to confront an attacker or a dangerous situation. Did you know, attackers always look for someone who isn’t going to give them a hard time?
Pressure Point Self Defense - Attacked Tonight on the Way Home - Are you a victim?
This is a very dangerous situation! Do you have the REAL knowledge to handle multiple attackers? Odds are that you do not!
An attacker will look for someone who looks like an easy target and won’t give them a hard time. In fact there are some very specific things you probably do that give you away as one, such as…
Someone walking with their head down
A person distracted by rummaging through their coat or purse
Someone on their cell phone engaged in a conversation
A victim that will be easily pressured into doing what they want
Most importantly, someone who will NOT put up a fight!
Attacked Tonight on the Way Home - Martial Arts Training
If you were attacked tonight on the way home this is where we hope our martial arts training kicks in. And there is a very good chance if we have trained vigilantly it will! However the reality of the streets today is far different than 20, even 10 years ago. The threat must end FAST!
Recently I quietly attended a seminar by a very well respected but out of touch martial arts master. There was no discussion of threat level, or anything realistic when it came to weapons. The techniques taught were OK as far as techniques go, however they provided a defense that simply did not address the BIG PICTURE. Ending the conflict with reasonable force in the fastest amount of time. Plus on the street these type of techniques rely to much on timing. And if your timing failed would get you hurt. Hence they are not practical.
Attacked Tonight on the Way Home - Real Pressure Point Self Defense
The problem today is most martial art training is very heavily focused on sport. And there is no similarity between this and self defense. I have personally known many good fighters who got smoked on the street because being attacked is in no way a sport! Therefore this is training everyone needs!
First thing first, which is the need to understand what I mean by self defense. Self Defense is not a "fight"." It is a situation when you have been targeted because the attacker wants something from you. It is not an argument in a bar that leads to fighting. That is a choice based on peoples egos.
Other things that you need to understand are linked below at the end of the article
Most of all I have something that can help you in every area needed for successful real street self defense. Keep reading and learn more!
Have you ever had a real life or death situation on the streets? Please tell me about it here!
I guess this the "Gates" plan for the world "plandemic" failed the next step for the CORRUPT power that be is to start race riots to destroy the Western Culture, to give them their Communist New World Order! This makes the chances of getting attacked on the streets far greater! You must be prepared!
Yje Media of Mass Distraction is NOT telling you the truth! How can you call something a "mostly" peaceful protests with black smoke and fire behind them? Yet they will attack people who wish to return to work, and CONDONE the violence we see now?
Grab the video below. This is a FREE HPPT lesson. This is REAL NO BS heads up self defense!
Attacked Tonight on the Way Home - HPPT
What is HPPT? It stands for Humane Pressure Point Tactics. This is a 4 Level certification course that covers all the different escalation levels of attacks. And it does so by first assuring your safety! It thus provides simple techniques and applications that work! Don't let the word "humane" fool you either! HPPT HURTS!
HPPT is NOT a combat system! You do not need a combat system unless you are going into COMBAT. Being attacked on the street with your loved ones is not combat. Don't be fooled by this ideal! You are also not going to be in a knife fight! If you are you need to take a serious look at your life! Unless you are in the military!
The police don't even get in knife fights! You need no BS practical solutions to dangerous problems! HPPT [Hume Pressure Point Tactics] will give you this and more!

The Yin-Yang Symbol is one of the most misunderstood symbols we have today. It is very old and is taken on a very superficial level by most martial arts teachers and even many spiritual masters. For years I thought I understood it! But today I am constantly realizing how much there is to it! One of the issues of course with something this old is translations. Translations can be very self serving for the translator. So let's look at the Kyusho Jitsu Yin-Yang Principle and symbol.
But we see that all the time. So today lets take a deeper look. But this is only going to be the tip of the iceberg!
Kyusho Jitsu Yin-Yang Principle - Meaning
If you have ever been in a room with me you will know I have a Kyusho Jitsu Yin-Yang Principle & symbol with some Chinese writing on my arm. I did this many years before I had any clue of what they symbol meant. I also used it as part of my school crest. The reason I used it was first the symbol was and is public domain. And it also symbolizes balance. I was asked once by an old woman in China Town Toronto if I understood it. From my explanation it was obvious I did not.
However when it comes to understanding the Yin-Yang Symbol that is like saying the sky is blue!
Many years ago I studied to some extent the religions of the world. Often time when people do this come back believing nothing. That was not the case with me. It caused me to search more for truth. It also made me see the many lies about the ancient civilizations and the things we have been told about them. They were far more advanced then we have been told! But that is for another time.
Often times the Yin-Yang Symbol is looked at as opposites. There is truth in this. It does superficially represent the duality of existence. Example of this are:
Yin - Negative - Yang -Positive
Dark - Light
Right - left
Up - down
I know you get the idea. But in truth they are not really opposites because as an example there is no pure good, or pure evil. now religion will argue with me on that. However they do not actually have an argument!
The world, the universe is a cycle. Good travels and finds evil, evil faces redemption and leads to good.
Kyusho Jitsu Yin-Yang Principle Symbol - The Principle
Because opposites do not attract! Like attracts like. And this is a law of nature. Here is where someone will say "like poles of a magnet repel each other." In actually this is not what is happening. Putting like poles of a magnet together is like trying to separate the Yin-Yang itself. It cannot be done because you are trying to stop the energy flow! One cannot exist without the other.
Even the way in which the symbol itself sits has an affect. I talked about this in my Esoteric Kyusho Jitsu Video Series, and it will be a MAJOR part of the Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project. The power of the Yin-Yang Symbol and what it represents cannot be over looked!
Below is a short video linking the Yin-Yang Principle to Body Mechanics
Kyusho Jitsu Yin-Yang Principle - Trinity not Duality
Only from a very superficial viewpoint can the Yin-Yang Symbol be looked at as a duality. It in fact is a trinity. It represent the extremes and the subsequent balance. And it is represented by math also. Specifically the numbers 3, 6 and 9.
Quantum Kyusho Jitsu & Yin Yang Theories
You can see here in this image the numbers representing each part. Do you see anything else? The position of the numbers?
This is important and powerful information!
It will beyond the scope of a blog post to explain all this! It really requires a video or a book! Perhaps both! The 3 numbers and the math they represent are very complex. And there are no other numbers like 3,6 and 9. Nikola Tesla stated these numbers are the key to everything and after much research I see his point!
Now you can certainly begin to research all the information I have on the Kyusho Jitsu Yin-Yang Principle & Symbol. If you would like to learn more about Quantum Kyusho Jitsu follow this LINK. And if you have any questions on the Kyusho Jitsu Yin-Yang Principle and symbol please leave a comment.

What is the Kyusho Jitsu Mindset? Well it tends to be very, very different from the mindset of the average martial artist. Especially in today's world. Martial Arts study is supposed to be a journey of not just physical movement but true understanding of the mind, body and spirit.
Today it is more about how much money you can win in the MMA/UFC circuits, how famous you can become and who's face you can punch in.
Sadly in much of the martial arts world today ego rules! But for the real martial arts students, and we are all students regardless of rank, it is about learning, developing and a strong code of ethics.
So what is a Kyusho Jitsu Mindset?
The Kyusho Jitsu Mindset - Learning
The first part of this mindset is being eager to learn! Now I see a lot of this at first in the study. But over time this can dwindle off. Do people lack motivation these days?
Yes that is certainly part of it! Also many students want an instant result, without putting in the time and effort. Sorry life does not work like that! It never has! And no matter who says the opposite, they are just plain wrong.
There can never be a world with equality of outcome. All that idea does is promote laziness, shiftlessness and a broken society. So put that garbage from your head! It is a lie told to you by the corrupt! [Politicians]
Life needs to have meaning, and meaning comes from getting off your butt and doing something.
OK, now it is well known that Kyusho Jitsu in already present, or part of every traditional martial arts system. It was just excluded from the teaching of many of the masters of old! The reason can be many! Perhaps it is because of WWII, or even that the Asian cultures just never liked the behavior of the Western Martial Arts mentality.
Kyusho Jitsu Mindset - Self Development
Martial arts training and Kyusho Jitsu study is a journey of the "self." It is the most selfish of endeavors! Now also as part of learning, self development requires you put your ego aside, admit you don't do not know anything about anything, and open your mind for learning! Without that you will fail, and you will fail at just about every aspect of life too!
"The only true wisdom is know you know nothing." Socrates
Kyusho Jitsu Mindset - Ethics
Next we must all have a code to live by. Grand Master Joon Rhee was famous for saying that "martial arts without a code of ethics is brutality." And this is another GREAT truth!
The Tenets of My Dojo
I develop myself physically and mentally based on the martial art spirit.
And I will only fight to protect my life and the lives of others.
Also, I achieve my fullest potential in developing knowledge honesty and strength.
There cannot be a mindset of "trolling" like we see so often! The Bullshido people make me think of this! I know many martial artists love there work, but why?
Do you really need some group to tell you how to think? And that is what they are trying to do! They are an insult to the intelligence of every martial artist in the world. There mission is to show you how much they "think" they know, and how stupid you are and that YOU need them!
"This is "bull" that is "fake" and we know because this is our opinion!"
Do you see a problem with this alleged way of thinking? I don't need any group of self appointed experts in ANY field in life who think it is their job to ridicule what people do, or tell them what to think!
This is a major reason society is the mess it is! Media like Facebook and CNN telling people what their opinions and thoughts should be! Pathetic really. Whenever I see this kink of behavior I know the company in question lacks "ethics". Facebook is a prime example as now the truth of what they are doing is coming out. Yet they, and CNN are 2 of the best finger pointers in the industry!
Do you have the Kyusho Jitsu Mindset?
What do you think? Do you have the Kyusho Jitsu Mindset? If not are you willing to develop it? The science of pressure point self defense can and will take the effectiveness of your root martial art to new heights!

The Kyusho Jitsu Down Block mechanically is the very same as any arts down or low block. But there is a a big difference in how it functions compared to the traditional interpretation.
To the average person seeing the block their thoughts will go to the idea that they are blocking a front kick. Therefore this is what most people think when they hear the term or see the block. However the Kyusho Jitsu Down Block has a very different interpretation!
Kyusho Jitsu the science of pressure point self defense exists in every martial art. It is an advanced part of all arts. However after WWII in particular the arts began to become watered down for consumption in the west.
Below is the traditional pattern Chon Ji from the International Tae Kwon Do Federation. Basic Kata with several Down or Low Blocks.
Kyusho Jitsu Down Block
As you can see this is a nice clean simple beginners pattern. It is very easy to see how someone would assign a down block as being to stop a front kick. The trick is to begin to see other things within the limits of the Kata, then to learn to apply them. So now let's take a look at a different Kyusho Jitsu Down Block interpretation.
As you can also see when the interpretation is done correctly there is no wasted motion! Now this is only one Kyusho Jitsu Down Block interpretation.
What is the basis for interpretation?
First you need to understand that Kata is not a performance or a dance. This is a modern day idea used because of how sport oriented the martial arts have become. In their true form Kata is a representation of "battle" with many, most of the techniques within being "DEADLY."
You also need to understand the anatomy of an attack. There are ONLY 3 attacks possible and it is the escalation level that is different.
Beyond that the weapon used is what changes. These are as follows.
Push - Someone comes up and pushes you.
Grab - The attacker will grab clothing, arms etc to stabilize and intimidate you.
Punch - when the attack comes to blows. The use of a weapon is the same as a punch because "impact" is the intent.
The Kyusho Jitsu Down Block - No Blocks!
The next thing you need to understand is that the word "block" is a BAD interpretation from the language of the root of the martial art trained in. There are NO BLOCKS only strikes. The brain will by reflex block someone come at it. No training required.
It is instinct to either move out of the way or use the arms to protect. This does not need to be taught. Using a "down block" for a kick is like using a screw driver to change your babies diaper.
Unless you are targeting something on the leg, like GB-31 as an example.
Here is an example of "bad translations or understanding."
My original Grand Master instructor, Mr Chung Oh was from Korea. While his English was OK, it was not great. In our foundation floor exercises he had an move called. Double Palm Downward Block, done in "back-horse."
For years this was called "back-horse." It was his accent, he was saying "backwards."
GM Oh was an amazing martial artist and instructor. He passed several years ago now. He is always remembered.
But because people do not ask questions, and consider these men to be "Gods" things are taken at face value, and therefore often misunderstood! And the "Double Palm Downward Block" was not a block at all, but a strike to the spine of someone trying to take you to ground, attacking the Associated Alarm Points and Governor Vessel. Done correctly the attacker would NEVER walk again.
Do you see how much has been missed?
I do not teach Kata Interpretation, or technique interpretation the way most martial arts instructors do it. The reason is that just "showing" someone what a movement can translate to or mean does not program the brain to use it. Instead I lead the student to see the meaning themselves!

I have been asked a few times recently what a "Beginners Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point Class" teaching would look like in a Dojo. Hence I do not have an actual video example for you as I have not been in Canada teaching a class in years.
And I have not really pushed it here in Romania locally because of language issues. So let's take a minute and break it down for you!
The class is a lecture style environment, with the students typically seated on the floor. Therefore information is given, and notes are taken by the students during class time. And at various points, depending on which lesson we are at there are training exercises with partners to begin the application segment. Therefore it is a rather structured atmosphere.
And the class typically the runs 2.5 to 3 hours. Which are conducted monthly. Everything and I mean everything is systematized to give the best possible environment! Questions and answers are taken at different points in the presentation. After the first class, every class then includes an hour of review. The information is complex and must be memorized to be effective! Most of all the class needs to move at a slow and steady pace to assure student comprehension.
