For the last 100 plus years a Black Belt has been the symbol of excellence in the world. Today it still holds this very high meaning! And obtaining a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt is no exception to this rule.
There are people who are very "negative" at the idea of people being promoted to various levels of Black Belt. The problem is however these men, and they always seem to be men, somehow believe this is a status symbol only a few should be allowed to obtain. They see it as a "touch guy" image.
They get very upset when they see people obtain ranks that "they do not believe these people deserve." Often times the comments are that this "diminishes" their or others rank and/or accomplishments in the arts. Bullshit!
Seriously guys, get some help! You have serious "self worth" issues if you believe what someone else does changes how people think of you. Plus why do you care?
The main reason for someone who is studying the science of pressure point self defense to work towards a Black Belt is what this does to their motivations. Unlike the rest of the animal kingdom people are "goal seeking" creatures.
Animals have basic instincts that people also possess, but we also need much more! We need to have purpose of meaning in our lives. Working towards and obtaining a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt is once such activity!
However, I must add this. You have to do the work and earn it! In the current climate people are often given things without actually having done what needs to be done. Like metals and trophies to children who lost. This does not make "strong" people! It is likely one of the reasons for the high suicide rate in the west!
The current ideology of "equality of outcome" is terrible for people! Equality of opportunity 100% yes, outcome 100% no!
Without meaning comes a sense of worthlessness, depression and hopelessness. So that being said, if you want to achieve a Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt you gotta do the work, and make the grade!
I have been asked, "if Kyusho is not a full art then why do I promote to Black Belt?" The reason is easy! People understand the meaning of the term Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt and therefore wish to excel to be worthy of the honour!
Martial Arts is supposed to be about BUILDING strong people with good character! We have an important mission and need to move forward with it! Hard work and dedication are good for you!
As a lifetime martial artist and someone who has trained in multiple arts over the years I can conclusively.
Black Belt is a person symbol of excellence. There is nothing mystical about it. Black Belt does not make you a self defense expert.
It means you achieved your GOAL! The problems in the world today do not come from lack of opportunity. They come from lack of drive due to lack of GOALS.
