Martial Arts styles and systems survive because of students deciding to be become teachers keeping their art alive. Back in early 2016 I created the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance with just that purpose in mind. And so the Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification courses were developed and released to those who were interested.
And the response was excellent! Over the last 3 years I have certified many people to teach the art and science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu under the banner of the KJWA. But now it is time make the changes I spoke of from the beginning, and get this program into real forward action!
On July 15th 2019 the way in which I am certifying instructors will be changing.
These changes will not apply to those who have already either certified or have purchased one of more of the instructor certification courses and are in the process of their learning / grading.
In other words these current instructors and students are grandfathered into the new system.
Anyone who purchases a Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course on or after July 15th 2019 will be required to pay a yearly licensing fee, as well as be required to submit a video examination to assure they are keeping up with their person learning. And that instructor certification credentials are issued because the martial artist wishes to spread the teaching of Kyusho Jitsu, and not just add to their list of credentials of their martial arts career.
The real truth of the matter is that people do not tend to move unless they have "skin in the game" and many people only do the course for a "feather in the cap." Doing that for your personal Black Belt is OK. But instructors need to actively TEACH.
And for the last 3 years I have been offering discounted prices on the 6 different levels of certification. Each level, beginning at Level One, which is where everyone starts is for teaching to a certain rank.
These courses will all be going to regular prices and further discounts will not be offered above the list price on the website.
These changes also apply to those who take the Instructor Certification Courses are Kyusho Jitsu University too.
After July 15th 2019 when a potential instructor purchases their downloadable course or enrolls at KJU the journey begins. Included in the initial purchase is their 1st year of licensing. After 1 year there will be an annual licensing fee of $100 as well as the video update requirements mentioned above.
This will assure the quality of our teaches as they represent the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance and not just themselves. And the highest standard of teaching must be maintained! All of this will be laid out at our Instructor Certification Page soon!
This may cause you to have questions on how this program will work. And all of this will be make clear and available soon.
Those who purchase their Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course(s) before July 15th will not be subject to the changes and fees listed above.
