Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions. What makes an effective strike?

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

What are Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions? Are they different and how do they differ from the standard strikes of other martial art systems? Let's take a look at this one in some details!

Have you ever seen a person who is about to strike someone?

Especially if they are angry? The fist is clenched very tight, to try to create a strong object to do as much damage as possible,

You can see the tension in the fist. While is does do lots of damage. The results are much slower to appear. This only affects the surrounding tissue and not necessarily the nervous or vascular systems of the body.

Swelling does occur from the use of a fist. But it takes time. This makes it very ineffective!

Actually when you look at someone in any kind of high negative emotional state you will see them with clenched fists, and a clenched jaw too! Because of the adrenaline flow in the body, it becomes very tense, and constricts energy flow. 

Even in competitions you will see this! There is a belief that harder is better. If this was the case most ring fights would end after one or two punches. But they don't, they last for a long time! 

Brain Trauma

Is damage being done? 100% yes! If you were to perform an MRI Scan on someone after taking few good head shots you would see an fast amount of damage! But they keep coming. In the street that is a BIG PROBLEM! A reason why Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions are so important!

Therefore the importance of understanding the basic Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions. These are all related to the elements of the body and when understood are very effective

The major difference is they are all in a relaxed state. When the body is relaxed it then projects energy. When it is tense it conceals energy. And if you understand the Yin-Yang Theories you will know the attacker conceals energy because of his emotional state!

Here is a breakdown of the Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions

  • Slapping Action for Fire
  • Vibrating Action for Metal
  • Chopping Action for Wood
  • Penetrating Action for Earth
  • Grasping Action for Water

These are all pretty straight forward and not difficult to learning. Plus they are effective with or without Chi development. With Chi development is always better, but not everyone dedicates time to the work! If you are curious about Chi Development follow this link and learn more. 

Kyusho Jitsu Striking Actions in conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

What makes striking actions so important? When we first begin our martial arts training our movements are very "constipated."

But often times rather than going back to a natural way of moving we just keep adding power for effectiveness.

And this is not very efficient! Kyusho Jitsu study is all about "Natural Movement."  Are there any hand positions or types of strikes you are curious about? Ask below!
