Kyusho Cycle of Destruction
One of the cornerstones of pressure point study is the Kyusho Cycle of Destruction. There are a total of 15 Principles, but the first 10 are the true building blocks to success! Consider them like a Parthenon. Without a solid understanding of these 10 principles success can be a BIG challenge!
What are the 10 Principles?
- Attack Along the Meridian
- The Cycle of Destruction
- The Yin and Yang Principle
- Attack with Correct Body Mechanics
- Using Tempo
- The 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle
- Using the Correct Stance
- Attack using Sound
- Attack with colour
