I spend a lot of time on this blog going into great details on how Kyusho Jitsu and the Pressure Point systems of the human body work. And also why they work. The idea to to overcome the bad press and all the propaganda. So today we are going deep into what I am calling the Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System. In reality we are discussing the human nervous system. This is an extension of an article wrote a while back called Kyusho Jitsu Nerve Strikes.
The human nervous system is truly a wonder. This system is why we are who and what we are. It controls everything that is YOU from one central location, your brain.
Now I have seen a lot of evidence over the years that there is much more too us beyond the brain. However for the discussion today on the "Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System" I will leave that for another time.
Science estimates many things about the "Central Nervous System" of people, and it is really just an estimation. The reason I say this is because they cannot lay it all out end to end and measure. Therefore math is use to draw their conclusions.
They estimate that end to end there is over 90,000 miles of nerves running through one human body. And there the receptors and neurons number at least 100 billion.
It is a delicate balance of many things, like water and various minerals, plus a PH balance to keep everything running smooth. We exist in a bio-electrical-mechanical suit.
And this is such an over simplified explanation it is almost shameful.
So what then is the Kyusho Jitsu Nervous System? This is the part of the massive system discussed above that is of interest to us in the science of pressure point self defense. And what that is basically comes down to is the definition of a pressure point.
What is a pressure point? This is a place on the body where a nerve ends, where one nerve crosses over top of another like in a "X" pattern. Or where a nerve splits and branches off like a "Y".
Pressure Points themselves are very small. The size of the head of a pin. However the areas of activation is much larger. The area of activation means the "striking" or "manipulating " area we need and use in Kyusho Jitsu.
There are 361 PLUS pressure points on the human body, all with their own characteristics and affects.
You can learn more about this from my book called Kyusho Pressure Point Anatomy.
There are certain ways in which you attack a pressure point, and all of them vary. They respond to either being "pressed, rubbed or struck."
And this is accomplished with something we call 2 Way Action. Yes at first this all seems overwhelming, however once you get a solid foundational understanding it does get easier.
Once you begin to get an understand of the basics, all falls into place.
The human body is a very complex entity and therefore very susceptible to outside forces. We have an illusion of autonomy, however we are effected by much in our environment.
A great example of this is 5g cellphone technology.
This is a very dangerous, untested technology they are implement globally. Here is a link to a video on the subject. Now what is humorous about all of this is there are people who will still insist that pressure points do not work.
I even had someone challenge me on the definition of a pressure point once. He said to me "there are pressure points where there are no nerves." When I asked him to name one he vanished.
These are the idiots of the world, those with unfounded, un-researched opinions. But that is just life! Hopefully I covered this information with enough details to paint a clear picture for you!
