Pressure Point Self Defense
So, what is Pressure Point Self Defense and why do you need to be studying and applying it to your martial arts system? Back in the old days of martial art training in the West the old master often referred to pressure points as “nerve strikes.” This is an excellent term, but there is much more to it than this!
Now picture 361 of these pressure points covering the human body! Not all of them are useful, but a large number of them are extremely effective in self defense.
Now why do I refer to Kyusho Jitsu, the art and science of pressure point self defense as a science? The reason is we TEST reactions and responses on real people to find predictable results that can be replicated. The things that we teach, when learned and practiced with intention, will yield a 90% plus result from attacker to attacker.
There are many who say that Kyusho Jitsu is not a science, so for those who think this, lets go back to the dictionary!
Pressure Point Self Defense - What is Science?
- the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment:
I don’t think much more needs to be said here! So exactly what are some examples of a predictable result? Let’s look at a few pressure points and see.
Pressure Point Self Defense - My Experience:
In 16 plus years of Kyusho study I have NEVER encountered a case that the above does not happen!
Here are just 2 examples on the arms, showing the predictable results. To become effective using pressure points you will need to understand how they must be attacked. What the correct angle and direction to use is, plus a solid martial art system to apply this information to.
Pressure Point Self Defense - Study
That is why I created Kyusho Jitsu University!
OK so what about me? Am I qualified? That is a resounding YES! My direct teacher is 10th Dan Kyusho Jitsu Grand Master Steve Stewart. GM Steve is a student of, as well as certified by Grand Master George Dillman.
I am currently a 6th Dan Black Belt in Kyusho Jitsu with DKI (Dillman Karate International). I am also a 9th Dan in my root art of Hapkido. At some point in the future I will seek my 7th Dan Black Belt with DKI or KIA (Kyusho International Alliance). But more importantly I am a LEVEL Five Certified Instructor in the DKI/KIA system. This is the highest level attainable. You can easily contact GM Stewart to check me out! Here is a link to more information about myself.
