What are the Problems with Kyusho Jitsu is facing in 2020? This article is purely editorial and only my opinion. However, these are the observations I have made in 2019 that I believe will come to a head and therefore affect Kyusho Jitsu / Pressure Point students and study in 2020.
Love him or hate him when it comes to the Martial Arts world Grand Master George Dillman has had a huge effect! As I am writing this article I just turned 60. This means I am now officially in the season of winter. GM Dillman from my understanding is now officially retired. And even if he is not, it is down the pipe. Who will replace him? How can anyone replace him? No matter who is chosen the in fighting will begin!
All you need to do is look at American Kenpo and what happened when Grand Master Parker passed away. Now I am not a "member" of DKI, however my Kyusho Jitsu rank does come from DKI. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out.
But working to unite Kyusho would be the smart idea! But I do not see it happen!
Now I admit I am on a soapbox here. BUT, it seems to me many Kyusho Jitsu teacher are more interested in showing off their skills than teaching pressure points. Why do I think this? Because people are leaving other organizations in droves, coming to me because I focus on the student and not my personal profile. For me it is about teaching.
This "may" be good for me, but not Kyusho in the long run. I also see law suites coming because of this ego issue and Uki's being allowed to Free Fall after a Knockout Pressure Points strike that could result in serious spinal cord and neck injuries. And the Kyusho instructors will lose because this is GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
And once this happens once we are going to be looking at legislation restricting what we do, ad that is ALL BAD.

The 3rd of the Problems with Kyusho Jitsu is people today do not want to move. Now I have students who's dedication to the art blows my mind. And my thanks to them! However, many people today want a result but do not want to do work. And politically speaking that is the narrative today. Guaranteed outcome. But that ideology is simply not a reality.
I even wrote a lot of a book based on this. The book is called Body-Mind-Spirit Budo without the BS. Check it out when you have a moment.
When it comes to the Problems with Kyusho Jitsu coming in 2020 I will say right now I hope I am 100 percent wrong on all accounts here!
Plus there are more concerns.And what bothers me most about all this is that each of these is political in nature. But I think all this needs to be said.
I would love to hear your comments, leave them here.
