Yes there are Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks and other small joint manipulations! Being that my root art and linage is Kul Sul Hapkido I am very familiar with the joint lock world. And I always figured we did them pretty well too!
Then I got into Kyusho Jitsu and discovered how much more effective they could be! How did this happen? The understanding of fulcrum/lever activation and 2 Way Action. This is a cornerstone principle of a art called Small Circle JuJitsu. Understanding how this information is applied to Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks can increase the pain level 10 fold.
Even though 2 Way Action is not considered to be one of the principles of Kyusho Jitsu study it is certainly a major foundation. Quite simply without 2 way action pressure points do not work very well. This is the big understanding that many people miss while looking into the science of pressure point self defense. Here is a great video on 2 Way Action and Intention!
Another important aspect of using Kyusho Jitsu Joint Locks, therefore working to make them more PAINFUL and more effective is to have a deep understanding of the pressure points involved.
When you understand this, then you can increase the affect of the Kyusho Jitsu Joint Lock.
Always remember on the street you are NOT looking for a submission! You are using the lock to CONTROL the attacker, or take joints apart so you can escape!
Watch the video above, this will certainly help you get a handle on 2 Way Action.
Does the video help you understand this concept of 2 Way Action? Please leave a comment and let me know either YES or No.
