Self Defense No More
I cannot save the world, and the world does not want to be saved anyways! After "beating a dead horse" for years I will be teaching Self Defense No More! It is just not worth my time or effort! I will continue to teach the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu, as well as my root art of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido!
But the focus on Self Defense is done. I will focus on the art, and the intellectual aspects ONLY. So let me explain why as we go along.
Self Defense No More - Apathy
Years ago I released many different self defense eBooks and products. And many people did purchase these!
An my thanks to them!
But out of 10 people who did purchase, only 1 of them on average did the work and the certifications.
Even though many police and security officers loved the content and said I was DEAD ON with what I was teaching! The martial arts world does not care. Why? The real thing is not sensational enough for people! They want the Hollywood fantasy not the real thing.
I was recently watching a video ad that is at my Dojo in Windsor, featuring a martial artists I do not personally know, claiming to be a self defense guru, and teaching absolute CRAP to a lot of people! Basically ring fighting! But this is what people want!
So if this is what people want, then go for it! I pray the violence issues slow down and you never need these skills! But ring fighting, sport do not translate to the streets.
What am I going to be teaching?
I will be focusing on the science of Kyusho, teaching all that I know to those interested, but I will cease the promotion of things like Humane Pressure Point Tactics. And I will continue to create courses and contents, but the application of the information will be left up to you, the martial art student and instructor.
I will also be focusing on Hapkido, and proving the information people want to learn, as well as the addition of Cane Defense to this. But the natural progression will be left to the student.
Will you even notice?
Likely not. I looked deeply at my read statistics for the blog. And anything to do with self defense comes in dead last! Pun intended! An article on Deadly Pressure Points, well that one does great and so that is the type of information I am going to be giving you!
I will be teaching self defense no more! The products will all remain, the articles here will disappear in time because unread content hurts my Google search rankings!
For the people who read the articles on self defense, we are like minded and most of you did not need my advice anyways! But I greatly appreciated the awesome comments and support!
For everyone else, well I know you enjoy the content coming. To the world? The words of Aristotle come to mind. "Tolerance and Apathy are the final virtues of a dying society."
Truer words have never been spoken about today!
