Self Defense Secrets

It is interesting, but when I make the subject line of an article anything about secrets more people will read it. Why? I think people deep down inside hope there is a way to get things done, win, without having to do the work. I could be wrong, but I don't think I am! So, what self defense secrets am I talking about? Well you did not read this far for nothing. But the secret may not be as exciting as you hoped.

The secret is......

Self Defense success is simple, its WISDOM, and wisdom is only extraordinary common sense

I see today so many online courses from EX military men that talk about "teaching you to defeat any man." And about their "special techniques" to assure success. Common sense will tell you this likely CRAP. 

Now assuming the person they refer to in the add is really a Veteran, and if so my respect to him or her for serving his country, does not make him a self defense expert. It makes him a military person. 

Men like Jesse "the body" Ventura are ex-seals but you do not see them teaching this stuff to the general public. Why? He is not qualified, WAR - Combat is NOT self defense!  The things these men and women train in are for WAR, they cannot be turned down for real life!

Plus often times when you watch the video this is nothing spectacular going on. It is BASIC STUFF. But the theme is someone looking for trouble! And if you look, you will find it! Real self defense is avoiding trouble!

So, why is this so bad? Because the focus of their content, and all the talk is about winning the fight. Self Defense is NOT about winning the fight, it is about surviving the attack. ​​​​​​​

Physically and mentally and hopeful without a murder charge against you. And without a life of mental issues from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD]. 

Self Defense Secrets to success are simple, the secret is WISDOM, and wisdom is only extraordinary common sense.

Things you need to know!

  • How to keep your cool! Train to depersonalize the attack
  • Understand every element and sign of ​escalation
  • How to create an escape path. It is not about winning, but surviving.
  • Use reasonable force always! You do not want to end up in JAIL! 
  • Know exactly what the law says, and stay within those limits.
  • Simply effective strikes and movements

Self Defense training begins long before any attack, and concludes long after the attack has ceased! There are many elements you need to understand, and apply in order to come out as a survivor and not a victim.

Self Defense NOT Combat

Shares

Self Defense NOT Combat!

Self Defense NOT Combat

Self Defense NOT Combat

Kyusho Jitsu, is for the purposes of Self Defense NOT Combat! Now from what I have been told by police and military it works very well in Combat. But unless you are either police or military your focus needs to be on Self Defense NOT Combat!

Now my expertise is in Self Defense, I have been obsessed for 20 years with this because I was once in a position I could not handle. And no COMBAT would not have saved me! But I will explain all of this in the video below. This was today's Kyusho Question of the Day from our YouTube Channel.

Self Defense vs Combat

The first thing that you need to understand is that self defense and combat are totally different ideas, and thought processes. Self Defense is DEFENSIVE. Combat is OFFENSIVE.  Complete Yin/Yang from each other!

Self Defense is Under Attack

In society if you take the OFFENSIVE against a person, armed or unarmed you are likely looking at a LONG jail sentence. And it happens everyday! There is nothing wrong with learning these systems, however you best be clear of the potential issues today with their use! 

Combat is KILL or be KILLED. Self Defense is ending a conflict with "reasonable force." Savey? An attack is a serious tragedy in life. It can scare you forever. Back when I was a kid it was called "shell shock" while today it is PTSD

Most of all there is something every martial artists needs to understand. As bad is that situation is, you with your ego driven attitude can make it a lot worse! Ending up in prison or dead because of improper thought process and training is making it worse. And prison is a HELL beyond your beliefs! And your unnecessary death is a Hell for your loved ones!

Carry a Weapon?

I am asked this often. Therefore it is time to really address this! Should I carry a weapon? My suggestion is NO you should not! The odds are you are not properly trained with it. If you are trained, like many in the USA on the gun range then fine.

Self Defense for Knife Attacks - Training Knife

Carry a Weapon?

Something you must understand. If you chose to being a weapon into the situation you have escalated it. And there will be serious consequences for doing so!

Be prepared! The consequences will take the situation from bad to worse. Win or lose. 

I see ads all the time for things like "tactical key chains." Honestly what kind of bullshit is this?  It is named in a military fashion, and then the person seems to think it is a fix all for any self defense situation.

If you use this with an unarmed attacker, your become the attacker! JAIL TIME! And you know damn well someone is watching with a phone, videoing it and will misrepresent that happened to the police! 

I have one of these. I have had it for 33 years! Not once have I considered using it. And I have been in some bad situations! There is much more to self defense than most people think! Have a look at the video!

Night of the Living Dead

My memory of the man I discuss in the video

Solutions for Self Defense

Right now I am going to offer you a solution for this issue. Now I am not saying you should not study combat systems! Who know maybe you will need it in the future. But you need to understand to your core the difference!

Kyusho Street Self Defense

Shares

Kyusho Street Self Defense

Kyusho Street Self Defense

I am often asked by non martial arts people if I was attacked would I use my "martial arts" to defend myself.  Every time I hear this question I honestly want to ask the person if they really are this stupid, or was this just a dumb question. Think about! It is like asking if I would breath to stay alive. My training is ME, and I cannot turn it off and go back to something else. And the idea behind Kyusho Street Self Defense is no different. 

It is never a question of if "Kyusho" works, only if you have trained correctly and can apply the knowledge. There is no BEST or SUPERIOR martial art, only superior martial artists! Sorry Gracie Brothers, yes the style is important, but you attracted the BEST people! 

Kyusho Street Self Defense - Sport and Self Defense

Everyone who know me knows I do not like sport martial arts. I competed in the TKD circuits for years and did OK. But I could not see any relationship between this and self defense. The same was true for boxing which I did intensely in my younger days. There are many differences between the 2 situations. Today we will talk about a few of them.

Misconceptions about Gun Defense

This LAW enforcement not Self Defense! And it will get you KILLED! Read about the Misconceptions of Gun Defense HERE!

The first one is a "fighter" is OK with the idea of being HIT. On the street you cannot take a few punches in order to land a few.  The attacker is not trying to "win" he or she is trying to KILL YOU. What is going on in their heads is not WINNING something, but doing as much damage as possible, without being caught or being hurt themselves. The functioning of the brain at this time is totally different! 

Do not stand your ground!

The next thing the fighter will do is "stand his ground." There are many dead fighters who after they landed the first punch on the attacker found a knife in their stomach and died from the complications! Shit I know ONE PERSONALLY who died in the 1980's in my home town doing exactly this!

What happened? He stopped a robbery and then as the "thug" was fleeing he decided to let his ego come forward and pursue the criminal. STUPID!!!!! All he needed to do was call the police and let them do what they are trained to do! But the ego get in the way! For his trouble he was pronounced DEAD at the scene.

There is no situation more dangerous than a knife attack! And almost NO ONE has a clue how to correctly handle this very bad situation! 

But there are solutions! However first look at this article on the 13 misconceptions of knife attacks

Self Defense for Knife Attacks

No One Wins on the Street!

The media and the ability to video anything these days has caused a glorification of street violence. And the problem is far worse than the "authorities" will tell you! Politicians are going EVER going to tell the truth about crime because they want to be re-elected! This is there ONLY driving force! 

Kyusho Street Self Defense is not about WINNING, it is about SURVIVING and that is the ONLY OPTION!

Kyusho Street Self Defense

What is needed for success on the street? What does the science of pressure point self defense have to do with street defense? Let's talk about this!

Now as I said in the video I am going to give you a FREE video that will help get you started on the REAL path to successful Kyusho Street Self Defense. Just fill out the form below, confirm your email and the video is on the way to your inbox!

What have you got to lose? But you have everything to gain!

What is H.P.P.T?

HPPT is short for Humane Pressure Point Tactics which is a street self defense system, based on 3 certifications levels, to add to your martial art training. It can be added to any system, and also taught as a stand alone self defense system for non martial artists. Therefore it is an across the board solution!

Self Defense – Safe Not Stupid

Shares

Self Defense - Safe Not Stupid

Self Defense - Safe Not Stupid

Self Defense - Safe Not Stupid

When I write a post like this I WISH I was talking to a small minority of people in the martial arts world. But sadly I am NOT. The number of martial artists with HORRIBLE thinking processes is very high. Now I make an assumption here because I am assuming if you read martial arts literature and posts, you are one of us. But I could be wrong. But this today leads me to discuss Self Defense - Safe Not Stupid. There is a lot of stupid.

Now maybe it is the chemicals in the food that is why people act like they do today? These chemical no matter what the "governments" say have to have a bad affect on the body. But I regress! What am I talking about specifically today? A massively stupid comment on an HPPT post on Facebook today. Why do I care? Because people who have these unbridled ego can negatively influence those who are someone lost in their thoughts.

The comment? "Come and try that shit [HPPT] in Lima Peru and you all die." Now I get idiots commenting all the time! So why am I addressing this one? Because honestly my friends this comment is BEYOND STUPID. He certainly has the right to say and think this! But I am hoping he is a 14 year old kid and not a martial arts teacher! 

Attacked Tonight on the Way Home

Avoiding BAD Situations

Self Defense - Safe Not Stupid - Why beyond stupid? 

So, what is his point of reference? What situation is this guy talking about? Do people in Lima Peru do nothing but kill each other? Why would I go there then? See the issues? He is an nut bag. "I WANT TO BE RIGHT and show everyone how smart I am!" But if he has follows, then there is a problem. Perhaps he is a gang member. Good possibility! 

Self Defense - Safe Not Stupid - Venezuela

Back in spring 2007 I found myself in trouble in one of the most violent if not the most violent, non war torn city in the world, Caracas Venezuela. I am not going to get into this here, however if you wish to read more follow this link.

How did I survive this issue? First of all I was smart enough to realize I had a problem, and just how bad that problem was! I had also done research on what happens in Caracas and was PREPARED.  A combination of being alert, smart, prepared and REAL self defense training to back it up. I did not go in like an full blown MORON looking for trouble!

Misconceptions about Gun Defense

Self Defense - Safe Not Stupid

Self Defense is NOT COMBAT. There is NO martial art system for COMBAT.  Go join the military if you want this! Plus, since are speaking English here learn the definition of words, and what they mean matters. Self Defense is NOT A FIGHT, not an MMA event, and certainly NOT COMBAT.

Self Defense is dealing with a bad situation, that may or has already turned violent. It is about being SAFE, getting out and letting the authorities deal with it! The ONLY WINNING is survival! And if I did not live in one of the most peaceful non violent places in the world I would carry a weapon, and be trained to use it as backup! 

In Canada I carried a knife, ALWAYS. However because I do not let my EGO dictate my actions I never needed to use it!

Self Defense is Critical

Developing a solid self defense plan in today's rather insane world is critical. I have seen to many people let their ego's get in the way. In fact I know of one person personally who was killed because he was STUPID. A tragic waste of life!

Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

An auto mechanic knows that for every job there is a tool. Sometimes these are very specialized tools, but they do exist. Just like for every pressure point there is a "way" to strike them. But sometimes it requires Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions to get the job done properly and with the greatest affect.

Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions - Heart 8

You may already be familiar with the power of the pressure point HT-08. This spot on the body releases more energy than any other. Is there a way to take advantage of this? To be able to use this in a self defense situation to get a more predictable, more devastating result?

Yes there most certainly is! 

In every martial art system there are the convention methods of attack. There is the punch, which is the most common and the least effective. Then there is the knife hand, and ridge hand which are much better than the punch. Finally there is the palm, which of the 3 is the most devastating. But it is the most challenging to use as it does not fit every situation. So everyone goes back to the punch. 

The funny thing about the punch is that most martial artist i have seen do not understand the mechanics of a punch, and use a sport version. This is designed to be safer. Some will condition their hands to make the weapon more powerful This is fine if done properly. But most people are not familiar with the proper way. This causes damage and pain later in life.

There are reason for each different "tool" being either more or less effective. A fist, especially if it is held tightly, with the thumb too far inward conceals energy. A knife hand has a better angular effect, and the edge focuses the power better. The palm is best because it can use the energy at HT-08 to enhance the effect. 

Kyusho Pressure Point Activation

So most people will then turn to elbows, knees and feet as additional weapons. The issues is these are higher risk or limited range.

The 6 Ji Energy Hands of Kyusho Jitsu

There are solutions to this issue. However they do require more study and more training! These are the Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions that I call the 6 Energy Hands. The 6 Energy Hands are specific hand positions, that release energy and have a specific function against certain pressure points.

These fit the occasion like a hand in a glove!

In October I am releasing an all new video dedicated to teaching these very important 6 hand positions.These will not only enhance you Kyusho Jitsu study but also help to make everything in the martial arts you do more effective! Follow the link below to learn more today!

Know the TARGETS!

They say knowledge is power, however this is only a "half truth." Applied knowledge is power! Now as an example I know that a "grasping fist" is a devastating weapon. But....If I know the exact best locations to strike, and exactly how to strike them I get a better result! Therefore "applied" knowledge is real power!

My new book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy gives the knowledge you need to change the game. Right now I am offering a FREE "Sneak Peak" of this new work! Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy is the "Grey's Anatomy" of the science of pressure point self defense.

Understanding Self Defense Escalation Levels

Shares

Self Defense Escalation

Self Defense Escalation Levels

Self Defense Escalation Levels

It still surprised me today how many martial artists do not understand what self defense actually is. For some reason many glorify it in to some kind of epic combat or great battle. All the while saying they understand the difference between "sport" and "street." You see this most often in the form of bad questions and answers as to which art is superior for street defense. They do not know or understand Self Defense Escalation Levels.  Self Defense does NOT occur when 2 or more people agree to fight.

Understanding Self Defense Escalation Levels is critical for success on today's streets. Every day the streets become more intense, and more dangerous as more and more people become upset with the current status of their existence. From dissension to mental illnesses there is a lot going on today.

This is the reason I have updated and released our 3 Level Certification Courses called Humane Pressure Point Tactics.

Self Defense Escalation - Low Level
Self Defense Escalation Levels

Self Defense Escalation Levels

Seeing the warning signs of coming violence is a life saver! These skills will not just protect you but also anyone else in the area!

The first level of Self Defense Escalation we look at is the low level. This is the interview or prelude to violence. And this will occur 95% of the time. Being blind sided does happen, however it is not as common as most people think it is. Violence is a very psychological event, and the need for the attacker to dominate and scare is part of this picture.  This model applies to from simple assault all the way to the horrific mass shootings.

Low Self Defense Escalation requires a certain skill set, which includes a physical element. You need to learn and possess certain verbal skills, as well as physical skills to preemptively hand bad situations. That is what HPPT Level One is all about!

Self Defense Escalation - Medium Level

Now the term medium level may confuse you a little bit, so let me explain. At the Self Defense Escalation Medium Level the situation has now escalated to violence with the first punch or gab having happened. Once at this point the negotiations have ended and the physical threat must be met with "reasonable force."

However no threat of the taking of life has been made, no weapon introduced or suspected.

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

H.P.P.T Humane Pressure Point Tactics

This is the level that most martial artists wrongly feel comfortable in. However many many times the martial artist overestimate their own skills or underestimate the attacker. Medium Level can go to High Level in heart beat and therefore there is much to consider! And many martial artists get in trouble here for "excessive force" as well! 

This level of Self Defense Escalation also requires verbal skills as well as physical skills. Humane Pressure Point Tactics Level Two Certification is designed for this particular level of Self Defense Escalation.

Self Defense Escalation - High Level

This is the "oh shit" moment when you realize that:

a) Your attacker is not alone.

b) That your attacker has a weapon

Both of these High Level Self Defense Escalation points are seriously life changing and life threatening! At this point the only thing that matters is getting out of the situation with your life still intact! There is no win or lose here, there is only survival! Plus there needs to be an understanding that a lot has gone wrong for you to be at this point! 

13 Misconceptions about Knife Attacks

Self Defense Escalation High Level Attack

Escape from this situation requires very special skills and a very special mindset! All of the "self defense vs weapon" dreams do not apply here! That is fantasy! This is reality! One such example is the countless misconceptions of what happens in a knife attack, or the believe that somehow you will disarm the attacker and save the day!

No you need the skills to get out and get out fast! You also need to understand why you are still alive and how to proceed from that point!  Humane Pressure Point Tactics Level Three Certification is to give you these skills, skills to understand, and deal with a life threatening situation. 

Currently I am offering the 3 certification courses at a substantial discount! However this cannot continue forever! Very soon the prices will be increased to the regular pricing levels for the information provided.

These are not only courses to teach you these skills need for Understanding Self Defense Escalation Levels but also to certify you as a teach so that you can with confidence bring this important information to the general public!

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat [Self Defense]

Shares

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat

I will tell you from the beginning I am not a fan of the term "combat" when it comes to self defense. It in my mind can be somewhat misleading. The majority of people who will read this post are not military men and women. They are civilians like me. What is the difference? Combat is a different mindset. Self Defense another. But, for the sake of the way people view things, lets talk today to see if there are Kyusho Close Quarters Combat solutions.

For the get-go I will state emphatically YES, there are Kyusho Close Quarters Combat Solution. We also have to remember that in the science of pressure point self defense, Kyusho Jitsu is implemented into a martial art style or system to enhance it! So depending on the style you train in, will come the direct techniques to handle close quarters fighting. 

Now my root art is Hapkido, and so there is a lot of in close techniques we have for use in these kinds of situations. But today I am going to address a question I saw on Quora about Kyusho Close Quarters Combat. The question is "Which fighting style is best in enclosed spaces such as in buses or planes?"

​​​​​​​Kyusho Close Quarters Combat

My own personal experience teaching this comes from a law in Ontario which greatly restricts the right of self defense to "public servants." People in this category are teachers, firemen, civil servants, ambulance paramedics etc,etc.  In their great lack of knowledge, understanding and common sense and because of a fear of "law suites" the government of the province implemented a course called "non violence crisis intervention." 

Kyusho Close Quarters Combat

A patient turning violent inside an ambulance is one of the most dangerous situations a medic can face. They deal with many different potentially dangerous situations such as drug abuse and serious mental disorders. Are you in a similar job?

Humane Pressure Point Tactics offers real solutions!

Not only is this non violent crisis intervention total garbage, but it is dangerous to the defender! Yes I have seen the course! But someone, someday will get killed because of it! I can certainly understand the idea of reasonable force, but this is ridiculous! 

I was because of the program asked to teach a class of people who were in school to become paramedics. Now there is a "hole" in the law because when the patient is in the ambulance and turns violent the government regulation no longer applies! Therefore I was able to teach them "real" Kyusho Close Quarters Combat techniques to defend themselves.

This leads to the question, "what did I teach?" I taught them the Level One and Two Humane Pressure Point Tactics [H.P.P.T]

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Kyusho Jitsu does not teach techniques. It does reference them, and demonstrate using them, however it assumes martial arts training. HPPT is different. This is a from the ground up training to handle the 3 main types or escalations of attacks. 

What are the "escalation" points I am referring to?

  1. Before a physical attack! Handling and hopefully deescalating a bad situation or disruptive person before things go bad. This includes preemptive measure to control the situation. All while remaining within the laws of self defense
  2. Dealing with thee situation once the attack as begun. This includes a grab or a punch. Close quarter self defense is naturally a part of this.
  3. High end self defense. This is when a weapon has been seen or introduced. I also teach skills to effectively deal with multiple attackers.

Back in 2010 I certified in all 3 Levels of Grand Master Steve Stewart's HPPT Courses. It is an amazing courses. However I have updated the information I have learn to deal with the ever changing situations of today's streets! 

If you fill out the form below, and confirm your email address I will send you a link to download a FREE Humane Pressure Point Tactics Lesson!

This is totally free with no obligation to do or buy anything! Just see what H.P.P.T is all about!

6 Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

There is an old saying, "everybody wants to go to heaven but no one wants to be dead." This is not just a reference to a way in which people think, but a reflection on society! People want a result, but without having to do the work or put in effort! So today I am going to offer some Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips to help you get past this curve!

But before we get into Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips I need to lay some groundwork.

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips - RIGHT to Self Defense

Everyone has a god(s) given right to defense themselves from attack! However the understanding of this does need to be clear! Today in the western culture everyone is screaming for more "rights." But there is a BIG issue with this?

Right to Self Defense - Know the Law!

Do you know the issue? For there to be "rights" there must also be responsibility! But in today world this is just NOT the case!

With "rights" comes responsibility, and the citizens must be responsible! Looking to "authority" to deal with your problems is creating a prison in which you must live!

It is your Right to Self Defense, and your responsibility to be prepared!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #1

You cannot cherry pick pressure points! I see this a lot in self defense. "Well when this happens I will...."  Sorry guys life does not work that way! An attack, or a fight if you will, is a living entity unto itself! And this entity is also not stupid. 

Often times I see so much in the self defense world the idea of "groin" strikes. Yes they can be very effective. And yes they should be trained for! From a Kyusho Jitsu standpoint this can be a strike to Conception Vessel 1, which is devastating!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

But self defense is not premeditated, it needs to be responsive. Also not reactive.

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips # 2

Knockouts are king! The very best way to end any kind of attack or fight is when you knock them out! You must know the systems that cause this, why they work and how best to apply them! 

How do you know when you are really understanding this important aspect of the science of pressure point self defense? When I was teaching on the floor full time in my Canadian school I would often be explaining something, or showing something and knockout the student by accident. 

Oppssss....

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #3

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips

You need to know a lot of different pressure points on the body! The larger the number of pressure points you train with, the greater your chances of being able to hit one when you need to! 

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #4

You have to feel the effect! In order to truly be successful with Kyusho Jitsu you need to do this! You must have felt the effect of a pressure point strike on your own person! 

Now I have strict rules about ages for knockouts. I do NOT like doing knockouts on anyone over 35 really. This is because we never know the underlying medical conditions that can exist.

However, and am more than willing to tap ST-05 with reasonable force and ring someones bell! This "internalizes" the understanding within the mind, and this leads to success! All victories in a person life are link to your internal psychology. There are no exceptions!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #5

Ask questions! If you are learning from someone who does not like to be asked questions, or ridicules the question then it is time for a new teacher! Being a teacher is a gift! And I honesty do not see very many good ones out there!

Great Teachers Inspire

Great Teachers Inspire Students to new heights! 

There is an old saying, "do not seek to be like the master, but seek what the master sought."

Every person learns differently. There are 3 different major type of learning. There is visual, auditory and kinetic! Each person has different strengths. The teacher should be able to spot the type you are in order to lean towards and alter his or her methods of teaching on the fly!

Also run from those who tell you there way is the only way and the other ideas are useless. These are instructors, preaching a doctrine of their own making! You need a teacher who is flexible and has ideas! Run like hell from these other guys!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips #6

I was only planning on doing 5 Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Tips but here is number 6! Keep looking to learn new things! As you grow and develop in the science of pressure point self defense, learning new things helps to solidify the knowledge you already have! 

In self defense or anything else for that matter, the mind is everything! And this is not a surface understanding either! Science cannot even explain why the mind is everything or how it works. 

Associate Memory - Understand how you learn

However the path to success is very clear. Therefore the more you learn, then train the understanding both physically and mentally, the better the results! The brain works by "associative memory."  So the more you learn, the more associations there are, the greater the success!

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

Let's talk today in depth about HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense. First I want to break up the term and clearly define it.

What is Kyusho Jitsu?
Referencing Kyusho Jitsu

Referencing Kyusho Jitsu

First and foremost, Kyusho Jitsu is NOT a martial art in of itself. It is the study of the pressure point system of the human body and how best to take advantage of the weaknesses of this system. It exists in every martial art but the information is either not taught, or not taught properly. This will result in ineffective self defense techniques. Here is the link to an article with more details on Kyusho Jitsu and its definition. 

What are Pressure Points?
Large Intestine 18

Large Intestine 18

A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve ends, branches off in a "Y" shape or crosses over another nerve. There are 350 plus pressure points on the human body. The actual size of a pressure point is that of the head of a pin. However the area of activation is the size of a Silver Dollar or Looney in Canada. Here is an article to Pressure Point Basics to help detail this information more for you. 

What is HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

Here is a definition that many martial artists seem to have a problem with. So now lets look at the role of HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense and a real definition. 

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

You will see a lot of negative comments from tough guys about the effectiveness of martial arts in general in a self defense situation. Why is this? Because for some reason these men believe that combat and a combative lifestyle are somehow linked to their manhood. 

When you have been in "more fights that you can remember" you are doing something serious wrong. This is NOT self defense. You have chosen to live a self destructive combat oriented lifestyle that will ultimately lead to your death. This can also be linked to several serious mental disorders.

But they are correct, martial arts will not work for them, and perhaps rather then die by the sword, they should seek some help. Unless you are police or military you should not be doing this! 

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense is about protecting yourself and your family from ATTACK by someone who wishes to do you harm. It is not an engagement in a bar, but it can happen there. And it is NEVER about you bragging about your skills and getting in a fight. 

Self Defense is the use of reasonable force to end a conflict, and then turn the issue over to those who are mentally and physically prepared to deal with things, LAW ENFORCEMENT.

Defend yourself with the idea of getting out of dodge. It is NOT about ULTIMATE victory! Showing your amazing skills and doing untold damage to someone, then dealing with the legal repercussions of doing so. And of course retribution.

That is childish high-school thinking!  I know 3 men from my High School now gone because they were this stupid and believed they were tough guys. 

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

So what is it I am teaching when I refer to HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense? Obviously I am teaching the correct way in which to attack a pressure point on the body to get the best possible result. Therefore ending the THREAT

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense

However at Kyusho Jitsu University we are doing more than this. We have course coming that assume no martial arts training and teach specific techniques to help deal with threats. 

But also these courses will...

  1. Teach you to identify a potential threat before it escalates.
  2. Use verbal skills to defuse the situation before the first punch is thrown.
  3. Situational awareness, understanding and using the environment to help keep you safe.
  4. And a lot more!

This is what self defense is! The best self defense is never using it! As the quote goes "chance favors the prepared mind."

HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense - Humane Pressure Point Tactics
Humane Pressure Point Tactics

This leads me to our new course at Kyusho Jitsu University called Humane Pressure Point Tactics. To my mind this is one of the most important course we have ever produced.  It is for the martial artist and non martial artist who wished to develop skills to deal with the chaos of today's increasing violent word.

For the martial artist this is very important.  As this is a certification course and I encourage the graduates to go out in the real world and teach the content of these 3 courses. 

I encourage those not in the martial arts to learn and develop these skills to help assure your safety in this crazy violent world!

And to show you just how awesome these 3 courses are I am going to give you an incredible gift. Fill out the form below and you can download Humane Pressure Point Tactics Level One Lesson 1 FREE!

Self Defense Techniques Using Pressure Points

Shares

Self Defense Techniques

Self Defense Techniques

Self Defense Techniques

When it comes to Self Defense Techniques using Pressure Points you can get a very solid result. That is providing you understand how things work. Often time I will see martial art teachers made big mistakes when it come to teaching self defense techniques, and adding pressure points to it.

Recently I watched part of a seminar for local law enforcement in which pressure points were badly misused. The 1st issue I had with what was being taught was the defender stepping forward into the punch. BAD IDEA. There is a time to step in and this was not the time. 

Next a "neck pressure point" was grabbed, however the teacher did not know the name of the point, nor was it attacked correctly. The pressure point in question was SI-16 [small intestine 16]. This is best a strike point. Yes the technique hurt! But under adrenaline this would not have been anywhere near as painful, because it is the wrong way to attack the point. 

Small Intestine Meridian

Second and most important! The attacker has 2 hands and you are now within grabbing range, and no options to get out!  Perhaps this man could "pull this off" himself, as he has about 45 years experience, but my issue is it is begin taught as "correct." And there was nothing correct about it!

There are many things I can do, but I would not teach these of techniques as some kind of "fact" of self defense.

Proper Pressure Point Usage

When adding pressure points to self defense techniques you gotta do it right! As an example let's say you are teaching a center lock. If the student knows the center lock, and you wish to add Kyusho Jitsu knowledge to it. Then it takes time to change the understanding. If they have never seen the lock before, it becomes easier obviously.

Next you need to make sure you understand the pressure points "universal effectiveness." What percentage of people does this pressure point work on?  With SI-16 it is in the very high 90% range. 

Here is an example of adding pressure points to a "lock." This is a "Z" lock in this case.

There are also variations of this. But you will get the result! However, the technique itself must be fully understood and internalized. Then you can make it work. You also MUST understand the escalation level for such a technique!

Self Defense done RIGHT

There is a lot of information out in the wild on self defense. But in my view a lot of it falls short of getting the job done! And a lot of it will just get you killed! There are things you need to understand, and then ways in which you must proceed!

What you must know!

  1. You must know what the THREAT level is for the incident at hand. This cannot be an "I can handle it" moment in your life. This can get you killed!
  2. How to position yourself to cut the threat! The high percent of attacks begin with an "interview." You need to see this happening and respond to it! 
  3. How to preemptively handle the situation before it becomes life and death. Making 100% sure you are safe while doing this!
How to Start!

There are stages to all this. What I am referring to above is stage 1!

The situation could turn bad, but it has not yet done so! Today this is the most common stage. This stage is so prevalent today because of the current political climate and all the special interest groups of people thinking they have been "hard done to."  They are angry and looking for someone to take it out on! So be cautious!

It used to be more commonly an interview for a robbery or some such event. 

Here are the 3 Stages

  1. Confrontation not yet become violent
  2. Dealing with the confrontation that has become violent
  3. A weapon is produced during the confrontation. Or there are multiple attackers.

You need a handle of all 3 Stages!

What are the Solutions?

Yes there is a solution! No matter what your level of self defense training, or how good your self defense techniques are this will help you! 

I have a new 3 level certification course coming this summer to Kyusho Jitsu University. This is called Humane Pressure Point Tactics. This is a 3 level certification course for both student and teacher. And is vital information on dealing with our current levels of street violence and confrontation.
