Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu is there any difference?

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

What is the difference Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

There is much controversy in the martial arts world about the ancient art of Dim Mak, as well as the not so ancient science of Kyusho Jitsu. Today I am going to do a comparison of Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu. Expose the different between the 2 arts, if there is any and how each can be studied in details. 

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu - Dim Mak

The legends of Dim Mak are countless! Right up to the 20th century as many people still believe today that Dim Mak was the cause of the death of martial arts legend Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee - Dim Mak vs Kyusho Jitsu

Now myself, I do not think Bruce Lee was killed by the "death touch" however he did have a lot of enemies, and his death is questionable at best.  Then of course after the totally unnecessary and ridiculous way in which his son Brandon died, more fuel was added to the fire.

*Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

The term "Dim Mak" means to "press artery."  Dim Mak is a method in which to "attack" the vascular systems of the human body and obtain a predictable and often deadly result.

It does not mean "Death Touch" as tabloid publications who mock the martial arts, like Wikipedia, like to state.

And just try to update that information! You will not be allowed. They love to mock and spread misinformation.  I have tried and failed many times. 

Dim Mak originates or began in the ancient art of Taijiquan, which lead to the modern day exercise art of Tai Chi. Now today these terms have lost their meaning, however in ancient times Taijiquan was a deadly martial art! Today people tend to think they are the same thing. Which they are NOT.

Dim Mak uses the pressure point systems and meridian systems of the human body to attack the vascular systems. Pressure Points are used as almost a "portal" for vibrating energy strikes to enter the body.  There are hand positions which intensify the ability to strike, and help to transfer Ki or Chi into the attacker. These are called Ji Hands.

Not all pressure points work for this purpose. Therefore not all pressure points are considered to be Dim Mak points. Pressure Point like Stomach 9 are because of their proximity to a major artery.

The over simplified explanation for how this works is that a strike is made which damages the vascular system in the local vicinity attacked and damage will occur after a time period. Depending on the area this can be immediate damage of damage that occurs later. An example of this is causing an aneurysm. Which would result in death anywhere from hours, to days, to weeks later.

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu - Kyusho

Now we will take a look at what I call the "science of pressure point self defense." The main idea behind Kyusho Jitsu is not the attack of the vascular system but rather the neurological systems of the human body. 

Nervous System -Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

The idea with a Kyusho Jitsu strike is to attack a nerve at a vulnerable place, which is a pressure point and therefore cause a dysfunction of the brain, or the area of the body attacked.

This dysfunction can be anything from a numbness in the limb, to intense local pain. And unconsciousness due to an overload of the system. AKA Kyusho Knockout

And a Kyusho Jitsu Pressure Point strikes can cause death. This is depending on the area of the body and the impact of the strike. 

Both Kyusho Jitsu and Dim Mak are complex studies requiring time, dedication and hard work. There are no instant results with either system or art. However with work many amazing results are possible and predictable.

Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu - in Conclusion

As you can see from the information above the major difference between these 2 arts.  However in its purest form Dim Mak covered the neurological aspects also. But it is not easy to find a complete "Dim Mak" art in today's world as much has been bleed out, no pun intended. 

Understanding Dim Mak Vs Kyusho Jitsu

And as I stated, both arts require a lot of dedicated work and training! However the results are worth it! One of the areas that must be covered in great detail is the pressure point system of the body

And I have cover this in details in my new book Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy, the Gray's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu. Plus you can take a look at a modern "interpretation" of Dim Mak also from here

In Conclusion - A Question:

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Do you believe that "delayed death"  is possible?

Was this the cause of Bruce Lee's passing or do you accept "death by misadventure" which was the final result?

Many Kyusho Jitsu systems today have abandoned the Black Belt in favor of "Levels' which while their right to do so, I believe is a disservice to the progress of the student! Therefore the KJWA still promotes to Black Belt!
