The idea of something like Kyusho Jitsu - Self Defense Mind Control scares a lot of people. As soon as you say mind control peoples thoughts automatically go to evil. And that is understandable, especially in our rather manipulative world today. However once understood, this idea can save your life!
I have been in the martial arts now for 33 years today. Much of that time has been into research, not just the study of physical movement. Why? Because I knew I wanted to someday run my own Dojo from the moment I began my training. Just like I knew I wanted a high ranking Black Belt. And I also knew there was much more to self defense than just physical techniques too.
Mind control is the ability to control thinking. This can be of yourself or controlling someone else's thought and behaviors.
Often referred to as "Brainwashing" (AKA mind control, menticide, coercive persuasion, thought control, thought reform, and re-education) is the concept that the human mind can be altered or controlled by certain psychological techniques.
Brainwashing is said to reduce its subject’s ability to think critically or independently, to allow the introduction of new, unwanted thoughts and ideas into the subject’s mind, as well as to change his or her attitudes, values, and beliefs.
These kinds of behaviors are typically used by the attacker take the form of intimidation, creating fear, and also confusion, which can be referred to as "Gaslighting." Now like all things in life there are both good and bad applications for such techniques. The Yin & Yang of the situation so to speak.
I think the negative implications are very evident, especially when looking at society today. But, these tables can be successfully turned around and used to our advantage as defenders. This is truly the "art of war" in action!
I have been accused of mind control when it comes to No Touch Knockouts, and even ST-5 knockouts by all those who are either not intelligent enough to learn Kyusho Jitsu, or too egotistical / lazy to do it.
This makes me laugh! Why? Image how good at mind control, or mass hypnosis as had been said, I would have to be! Yet they don’t believe I can knock someone out at ST-5? But enough of limited thinkers!
What is the real meaning? Being able to add the understanding of how people think to your self defense repertoire. And then when needed influence change to either buy time or end the conflict outright!
To be honest it has gotten me out of a lot of bad situations in my life! The ultimate in self defense is not having to use it! The MIND is the number one self defense weapon!
The truth is when comes to thinking the majority of people do not. They blindly follow their programming and emotions to find desired outcomes.
And the majority of the time this does not work out so well.
Now this is an older post with a MAJOR rewrite because I have learned a lot since I first wrote it.
Below is a video to watch from my new series on HPPT Self Defense Solutions. This one about Self Defense Mind Control.
I am hoping you do a lot of physical training in real STREET self defense techniques. But that is really only about 10% of the picture. The rest is all MIND.
Are you doing any mental preparation for being attacked and successful defending?
