Let's talk today in depth about HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense. First I want to break up the term and clearly define it.
First and foremost, Kyusho Jitsu is NOT a martial art in of itself. It is the study of the pressure point system of the human body and how best to take advantage of the weaknesses of this system. It exists in every martial art but the information is either not taught, or not taught properly. This will result in ineffective self defense techniques. Here is the link to an article with more details on Kyusho Jitsu and its definition.
A pressure point is a place on the body where a nerve ends, branches off in a "Y" shape or crosses over another nerve. There are 350 plus pressure points on the human body. The actual size of a pressure point is that of the head of a pin. However the area of activation is the size of a Silver Dollar or Looney in Canada. Here is an article to Pressure Point Basics to help detail this information more for you.
Here is a definition that many martial artists seem to have a problem with. So now lets look at the role of HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense and a real definition.
You will see a lot of negative comments from tough guys about the effectiveness of martial arts in general in a self defense situation. Why is this? Because for some reason these men believe that combat and a combative lifestyle are somehow linked to their manhood.
When you have been in "more fights that you can remember" you are doing something serious wrong. This is NOT self defense. You have chosen to live a self destructive combat oriented lifestyle that will ultimately lead to your death. This can also be linked to several serious mental disorders.
But they are correct, martial arts will not work for them, and perhaps rather then die by the sword, they should seek some help. Unless you are police or military you should not be doing this!
HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense is about protecting yourself and your family from ATTACK by someone who wishes to do you harm. It is not an engagement in a bar, but it can happen there. And it is NEVER about you bragging about your skills and getting in a fight.
Self Defense is the use of reasonable force to end a conflict, and then turn the issue over to those who are mentally and physically prepared to deal with things, LAW ENFORCEMENT.
Defend yourself with the idea of getting out of dodge. It is NOT about ULTIMATE victory! Showing your amazing skills and doing untold damage to someone, then dealing with the legal repercussions of doing so. And of course retribution.
That is childish high-school thinking! I know 3 men from my High School now gone because they were this stupid and believed they were tough guys.
So what is it I am teaching when I refer to HPPT Pressure Point Self Defense? Obviously I am teaching the correct way in which to attack a pressure point on the body to get the best possible result. Therefore ending the THREAT.
However at Kyusho Jitsu University we are doing more than this. We have course coming that assume no martial arts training and teach specific techniques to help deal with threats.
But also these courses will...
This is what self defense is! The best self defense is never using it! As the quote goes "chance favors the prepared mind."
This leads me to our new course at Kyusho Jitsu University called Humane Pressure Point Tactics. To my mind this is one of the most important course we have ever produced. It is for the martial artist and non martial artist who wished to develop skills to deal with the chaos of today's increasing violent word.
For the martial artist this is very important. As this is a certification course and I encourage the graduates to go out in the real world and teach the content of these 3 courses.
I encourage those not in the martial arts to learn and develop these skills to help assure your safety in this crazy violent world!
