George Dillman Kyusho Controversy

The George Dillman Kyusho Controversy

Grand Master George Dillman [DKI] is one of the most, if not the most controversial person in martial arts history. So today I am going to give my viewpoint on this very controversial man. All from personal experience. So let's rock!

George Dillman

The martial arts industry is certainly an interesting one. And after 35 years in the arts I have to tell you I am NOT a fan! Martial Arts students and their teachers are supposed to stand for certain values, things like "integrity." But sadly this seems to be missing in a LARGE number of people in the industry.

Integrity Meaning:

Meaning of Integrity

"Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles, or moral uprightness. It is colloquially a personal choice to hold oneself to consistent moral and ethical standards."

I just do not see in that definition anything that says "envy, jealousy, gossip, back stabbing, egotistical, or manipulative." Now I may be wrong, but this is what I see with every person shooting off their mouths with regard to GM George Dillman. 

AND those of you who do this are PATHETIC!

Over the years I have met MANY martial artists, masters, grand masters who did not impress me. But not ONE TIME have I violated my code and talked about them. It is one thing to discuss or disagree with them. it is another thing to run off at the mouth and SLANDER/DEFAME them. There has been a witch hunt for George Dillman for decades now. ENOUGH PEOPLE! Time to act like adults!

However in the western world today this is just the path people now take. A path that will bring an end to the western civilization, and it will END SOON if this does not stop!

The First Time I met GM Dillman

With Steve Stewart. George Dillman and Louise St Jacques

I first met George Dillman in London Ontario back in I believe 2001. He was doing a seminar at Steve Stewart's Modern Martial Arts. This was an all day event and it hooked me into wishing to learn more about the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu. 

Meeting GM Dillman the first time I found him to be somewhat distant. Then as I began to see the childish, jealous behavior of many in the martial arts community I began to understand why.

At this seminar he taught us things i could take back and make work the next day. Many seminars over the years I have attended were designed simply to sell products. George Dillman taught, and he is the REAL DEAL as GM Steve Stewart, my Kyusho teacher puts it!

Over the years as I began to know the man more, the more I liked him as a caring, genuine person. A man with great knowledge, that not all are able to learn and use.

However your shortcomings as a martial artist do not give you the right to slander anyone else. I am not writing this to defend George, he does not need my help, but instead to point out the TERRIBLE behavior of my own industry! 

National Geography

The "report" National Geographic did on GM Dillman was appalling. It was a one sided attempt to discredit someone and damage them.

Then they did a "report" on real vampires and why these people need to drink human blood. They slander one person, then enable those with a SERIOUS mental illness!

National Geographic is just another MAIN STREAM TABLOID. No different than CNN, BBC or CBC! All NO watch stations for me. 

In Conclusion

Kyusho Article CONCLUSION

Love him or hate him, your opinion is yours and you are entitled to it! You however are NOT entitled to slander of defame someone. AND THIS IS LAWSlander and defamation are not FREE speech and NEVER HAVE BEEN.

It is time to lose the EGOS and put the VALUES of Integrity, self control and honesty BACK into the martial arts. And POLITICS IS NOT A VALUE. You cannot fix the industry nor can I! However I can be responsible for my behavior and teach my students to be responsible also. I have on many occasion fired student over childish behavior like I am talking about.

What do you think? Not about George Dillman, but the current state of the martial arts world. Click here to comment.

    I love this! First of all INTEGRITY is what martial arts is all about!!! We train to become better people and make example for others to be better people.
    George Dillman is a very down to earth person. I don’t even know him, but I’ve followed his teachings ever since he started publishing his books. His methods were groundbreaking! All of the sudden Martial Arts have purpose, at least as far as the practice of kata/forms. However, this doesn’t stop people from being ignorant. Ignorant people IGNORE anything that takes time to absorb and requires time and patience. Especially now in this world where everyone is under pressure and in a rush.
    I used to get upset. Thanks to training, I’ve learned to change my thinking. I’ve learned that my only enemy is my ego and tendency to get angry because I can’t control things.
    This is what I think. I don’t think it matters whether it’s George Dillman is a hack thing, or Wing Chun won’t last in an MMA ring… WHATEVER. I pay no mind. No comment. It’s a battle that I cannot win, and leads to darkness.
    Thanks George!!! You are a brave man! God Bless you… wherever you are.

    Hola. Soy nueva en la autoinvestigación del kyusho (lamentablemente es inaccesible económicamente para mí), sé que el Maestro Dillman tiene un historial importante, tal vez el mas importante con respecto a la relación del kyusho con Okinawa. Tambien sé que es el maestro de muchos y muy buenos otros maestros, que de alguna manera han desarrollado mejor pedagojicamente el material de difusión, pero tambien son aún mas inaccesibles economicamente. Tambien sé que tiene sus detractores, por alguna cuestión que desarrolló del Kyusho sin tocar. En fin, conozco gente que hace muchos años está en esto, no con la escuela mas difundida a nivel occidental, he preguntado sobre el tema, y la respuesta sin dudarlo fue que su preferencia en cuanto conocimiento era Dillman. Particularmente he ido a dos seminarioa de su alumno mas conocido, me gustó, y es muy agradable. Sin dudas pedagogicamente hace un muy buen trabajo, pero me distancio en la visión filosófica del arte. Tengo mas de 30 años en karate uechi ryu tradicional y hay temas filosoficos que estan muy arragaidos en mi, el buen conociniento y trasmisión debe ser acorde a mi filosofía, de lo contrario no sería integra de mi parte, conmigo misma, con mi Sensei, ni con mi Escuela.

    El maestro es el Padre de uno y siempre será tu padre, aunque te pelee, te contradiga, etc. y Dillman, es el padre de todos los maestros en el mundo occidental, aunque algunos lo quieran borrar de sus vidas.
