What is needed for Successful Self Defense? To my mind there are 3 main areas to be concerned with. For the purpose of today's article we will look at the 2nd of the 3 in detail. Below is a breakdown for you.
So pretty straight forward right? But first let's define what I mean by a solid root art.
Now why do I say a solid self defense root art? First if you are not training you need to! The skills must be honed and sharped to assure success. Those who train exclusively in a ring oriented MMA style can be OK. The issue with these styles however is they accept and prepare to take punishment. While this can be OK you can quickly get into trouble if a weapon is introduced. You need this attack to end fast! You want to AVOID being hit in any way! Therefore the attack needs to end in seconds, not minutes.
Why is it a science? Because we research what works and what does not work. Today the word science is bastardized to mean "way." I believe words have meaning and the meaning needs to be honoured. The idea behind Kyusho is to learn target areas of the body that can and will give a predictable result 90 plus percent of the time. Plus when studied properly you discover that there are MANY places that can be accessed across the body. Hence this understanding will allow the correct application of a root art to successfully end an attack in seconds!
Here is a video for you to look at. This is actually a KATA interpretation, and not a street application. However Kata interpretation leads to great understanding of applications. This is a Stomach 5 Knockout.
Back last spring I wrote an eBook that has been one of my best sellers! It is the Grey's Anatomy of Kyusho Jitsu. It is called Understanding Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts! There is a link below here so you can read more about this very important self defense theories work!
