I am always shocked at times at the lack of Kyusho Martial Arts Ethics I see. Style bashing, people bashing, accusation without any fact or substance. And people wonder why I want nothing to do with most of the industry? I look for like minded people. And those who troll and hate, well I just block and delete them. Therefore I do not engage.
Recently I was accused by one Kyusho guy of stealing a "catch phase." It gave me a laugh because there must be a hundred plus marketers using this "catch phrase" and I stole if from a mentor named Dan Kennedy.
Dan is a marketer and copywriter, not a martial artist. But what makes me the laugh the most is, that other Kyusho people think I even look at what they are doing! WRONG! I have not been on any of these sites. I really have no interest. So I don't watch people videos on YouTube either unless someone recommends one.
My competition is not other Kyusho teachers, my competition is other martial arts systems who "claim" to be the end all of self defense. These people without a clue of what they speak with bash Kyusho and anything that is not their system.
The real fact is if one of my people is also learning from another Kyusho guy that is fine with me. If they leave that is cool too. No hard feelings! I won't play this game I see in the industry so often. Therefore if you are a member of the KJWA is because you like what i offer and choice to be here! There is no ultimatum with me.
Recently I saw a direct ripoff of what I do on a website. There was even someone who showed me his collection of my eBooks after telling me before he could buy them due to financial constrains. I have to admit it is an honour to be pirated! I don't think he realized when he sent me them that I was the author! Gotta love it!
The world of potential Kyusho Jitsu students is HUGE. We are talking about 10 million adult martial artists! I want people with me who want to learn, benefit and help spread the word of what we do! The door is always open, in both directions!
Back in 2003 I had the great privilege of sitting at a table with Grand Master Jhoon Rhee and have a coffee. WE spoke at length about the martial arts world. One thing he asked me was if my Dojo had a "student creed." My answer was yes, because we do. Then then wish a very serious face said "good, because martial arts without a code of ethics and conduct is barbarianism"
I could not agree more!

Kyusho Martial Art Ethics. Do ethics still exist in the martial arts world? Or anywhere else for that matter? #kyusho #pressurepoints #martialarts
