There are some that believe that Kyusho Street Defense is a myth. That pressure points do not work, and never will. For them that is truth. I have no interest in convincing them otherwise. There is actually a “type” of person who believes this. Now I am not going to say they are narrow minded, but their life experience is often based on conflict. They do things a certain way, and to them that is the only way.
If you talk with some self defense, or combat experts. The ones who have seen real action. Things you or I, the average person will never see they will tell you pressure points work. As long as you have been really trained in them and not just exposed. I know several police and military in both the USA and Canada who will attest to this. These men have seen real action, beyond what we can imagine.
Kyusho jitsu is a system, not a martial art. This is where some confusions lies. There are many who think otherwise, and so they denounce it. That is like the old saying goes, like “throwing the baby out with the bath water. ”
If you are training in a solid martial art, or combat / self defense system, supplement it with Kyusho Jitsu will make it much more effective and give you a more predictable result. Kyusho Jitsu, the science of pressure point self defense is PART of the self defense solution, not the solution itself!
The more well rounded your training is, not to go to crazy however, the more effective it will be. Striking arts should add grappling to them. Grappling people need striking skills. Knife defense is important. I suggest if possible hand gun training. The more you learn the better! Kyusho Jitsu is a very important part of the entire picture of your training!
