24 Hour Diurnal Cycle of Kyusho Jitsu. What are body energy cycles?

The Kyusho Jitsu 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

Beginning in Novice Kyusho Jitsu study and carrying on far into the master levels including Dim Mak is the Kyusho Jitsu 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle. Many student believe this cycle to be of little use. However this could not be further from the truth. The fact is that the Kyusho Jitsu 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle is a cornerstone principle of pressure point study as well as Dim Mak. It is also essential for success. So today lets dive deep into this advanced principle. 

Kyusho Jitsu 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle - Breakdown

First let us take a few moments and do a breakdown of the cycle. It is critical for any Kyusho Jitsu student to memorize this cycle and be able to recite it from any part forward and backwards! 

24 Hour Cycle - 1st 12 Hours

  • 3:00 am - 5:00 am - Lung
  • 5:00 am - 7:00 am - Large Intestine
  • 7:00 am - 9:00 am - Stomach
  • 9:00 am to 11:00 am - Spleen
  • 11:00 am - 1:00 pm - Heart
  • 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm - Small Intestine

24 Hour Cycle - 2nd 12 Hours

  • 3:00 pm -5:00 pm - Bladder
  • 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm - Kidney
  • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm - Pericardium
  • 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm Triple Warmer
  • 11:00 pm - 1:00 am - Gall Bladder
  • 1:00 am - 3:00 am - Liver

So what exactly is this? In the healing arts this is the energy flow cycle of the 12 meridians of the body. Note the Yin/Yang parts? This is extremely important as the study progresses! The time itself denotes the "reboot" period for the organ and therefore it become most vulnerable at this time. 

Kyusho Jitsu 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

So as an example the Gall Bladder meridian is at its most vulnerable from 11:00 pm to 1:00 am. Therefore attacking GB-20 will have a more devastating effect.

Since this is also the height of drinking time in the bars, and alcohol weakens the Gall Bladder this adds to the effect. 

But this information applies more to Dim Mak than anything else. The reason being is most people are not that time conscious. However with training you could be!

In Conclusion
