Pressure Points of the Arm

Pressure Points of the Arm

The study of pressure points is complex, and the points on the arm are the very best place to begin. Why is that? Because the arms will always present themselves first at the beginning of an attack. Attack what is attack you is a solid defense idea!

You have many points to chose from in such a defense. Understanding about 8-10 of these is really all that is needed. Knowing this many will give you access to all the major areas of the arms.

Here is a short video with some explain of one such point.

If your are new to all this pressure point talk I have 2 great options for you! One is our FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course. This is a 2 month email based course with a new lesson every 3 days. The second is a test drive of our Kyusho Jitsu University Gold Membership Course. Right now we are offering your first 30 Days for $1.00. This is like the mini course on steroids!

Kyusho Jitsu Basics

​Understanding Kyusho Jitsu Basics is the main avenue to success with the science of pressure point self defense. The problem today is people are so bombarded by information it is hard to FOCUS on what needs to be done.  The basic must be studied and studied again. Success in life, and martial arts is about repetition.

What are the Kyusho Jitsu basics? Here are a few things to focus on!

  1. 5 principles of Kyusho Jitsu
  2. Meridian Paths
  3. ESP
  4. Diurnal Cycle
  5. Stances
  6. Kata Breakdowns

But the problem is that people will go, "that is easy I know it!" When the truth is they have a very superficial understanding. An intellectual understanding. Not an application understanding.

Do you want a SOLID education? Be able to actually use the information? Then take a look at this!

Dim Mak and Vibrating Palm

Dim Mak and Vibrating Palm

The world of Dim Mak is fascinating, especially the study of the Vibrating Palm. In the world of Dim Mak there is a lot of work, and a lot of conditioning to do. Those are the ancient ways after all! 

Being that these arts are all linked in to the study of Buddhism or Taoism also adds to the length of study. There must be dedication from the true student. However not every can dedicate the time to do this. I studied mediation from a Korean Master, I spent several hours per day in training.

However even if you don't have the time required for those things, there are still many benefits can be hard from the knowledge anyways.

That is the same with the world of Dim Mak and its principles. You can join us now at the Dim Mak Project by following the link below. There you will find out about the different stages and join our Newsletter!

Novice Dim Mak Course Begins Monday

The Dim Mak Project

The Dim Mak Project

I am excited because the Novice Dim Mak Course Begins Monday! Today I have been busy scheduling the post to larch at midnight on Monday. It has caused me to get behind on other project, but that won't last. I just do not want to lose my train of thought for this course. It is gonna rock!

Enrollment for the course has been outstanding as many of you are taking advantage of the really low enrollment cost! How can you beat $49.97 for 3 months? The information you will get will not just shock you, but take your understanding of all things Kyusho to a new level!

As I said above the price is OUTSTANDING, but it is going to go away as soon the the first lesson goes online! It will just to $37.97 per month or $79.97 if you pay the 3 months ahead. There will be no further discount and I may perhaps increase this do the the hundreds of hours of research I have done in the last year alone on this.

You can join the course anytime, and take as long as you wish to complete it. It is what I consider to be 3 months of lessons, based on our other programs.

If you want to enroll before the deadline, or learn more about he course follow the link right below!

Adding Kyusho to Krav Maga

​Adding Kyusho to Krav Maga

Adding Kyusho to Krav Maga

Adding Kyusho to Krav Maga

Can you add Kyusho to Krav Maga? I was asked this question recently and the answer is a very loud YES! You can do it without having to alter what Krav Maga teaches, and it will improve the effectiveness of the system tremendously!

What is Krav Maga? It is a military self defense and fighting system developed for the Israel Defense Forces and Israeli security forces. ​Which is a combination of many different martial art styles. ​Incorporating a realistic, or as close as you can get, fight training. ​Krav Maga is also in my view one of the best marketing systems in the world, achieving global recognition, like BJJ and Taekwondo has. 

Why Add Kyusho?

I have never trained in Krav Maga. However I do know many people who have, and have spent many hours watching the system. Like all systems it has its strengths and its weakness. Nothing is ever perfect!

What weakness do I see? First the fights go on too long. That is OK from training standpoint, however the longer a battle goes the greater the odds of losing. Second and most of all is missed opportunity! 

​Opportunity for elbow dislocates when there is not proper leverage to use power, but a pressure point would work. Most of all missed neurological knockouts that are the fastest way to end a confrontation hands down.

Please understand I am not knocking Krav Maga. It has proven to be an effective system just by its popularity alone. However there is also room f​or growth. If you are a Krav Maga practitioner and would like to know more about incorporating Kyusho Jitsu into your system feel free to contact me. I can be reached by email at master@kyushojitsu.ca.

Real Self Defense Success

Real Self Defense Success

Real Self Defense Success

Real Self Defense Success

The truth is real Self Defense success is very possible! But there some things you need to know, and understand to successfully deal with a serious life threatening assault on the streets today. Let's begin with the misconceptions.

  • Sport MMA is enough, sorry no it is not.
  • There are quick and easy ways to learn. NOPE
  • I can use my skills kicking high. Sorry another non truth

So what does it actually take?

  1. Serious training in a solid self defense oriented martial art. With an instructor who's focus is on self defense, not making champions.
  2. Training the mind to not panic during conflict
  3. Knowing the attack must end FAST.


There is a lot of CRAP out there!

It is unfortunate, but it is true. there is a lot of real crap out there being taught as self defense. The latest i​s one of these "you don't need to learn to fight" with our system. The​re is a guy holding off a knife attack with a chair! You know the guy with the knife has 2 hands, he can grab the chair with one, and stab you with the other! You are not fending off a dog! This is a real person, who is bent on cutting you! 

Next I saw a real cool video of a very talented lady and her excellent kicking skills. All the comment as what a "bad ass" she is. No, she is a talented kicker, and without proper real life training, those skill won't help her. But they could get her hurt FAST. The focus is on the wrong thing once again!

Where Does Kyusho Fit in?

So where does the science of pressure point self defense fit into this picture? It first of all Kyusho is NOT a martial art, but a SYSTEM that will when studied properly will enhance your current root arts effectiveness. Helping you to deal with an attack FAST.

​And despite what some people who have never studied Kyusho, just watched YouTube want to say, it WORKS! You can ask many military and law enforcement people who have done the work! But you must do the work too! 

If you are new to all this pressure point stuff, at the bottom of the post you will find a form to join our FREE 2 Month Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course.  Scroll down, enter your name and email. Then verify your email and you are in!

I remember when I was in High-school, about 100 years ago. I had one teacher who always gave "pop" quiz's. The funny thing about them was, no matter how much I hated his class, the quiz's really did help!

Quiz's Keep You Sharp

I remember the days of traveling back and forth to London Ontario to learn Kyusho Jitsu from Grand Master Steve Stewart. He was great at this type of thing. Always asking the students tricky questions to keep them motivated, and thinking on their feet! ​Now when you live in a virtual world, this is a little harder to do. So take advantage of EVERY learning moment and do the quiz!

Here is the bottom to access the new Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Quiz! There are 2 online, one for Novice and one for Advanced. I will add a Master Level Quiz soon too!

Cycle of Destruction

Shares

Cycle of Destruction

Cycle of Destruction

Cycle of Destruction

The Cycle of Destruction is one of the cornerstone principles in Kyusho Jitsu. As you can see from the diagram above the cycle breaks down as the following:

  • Fire melts Metal
  • Metal chops Wood
  • Wood penetrated Earth
  • Earth dams Water
  • Water quenches Fire

Pretty simple right? The diagram also has the cycle of creation on it. But we don't need to focus on this right now.

Organs and Elements

Each organ in the body, and therefore the meridian that represents them has a relationship to an element. So lets look at this relationship.

  • Heart - Pericardium - Small Intestine and Triple Warmer - FIRE
  • Lung and Large Intestine - Metal
  • Gall Bladder and Liver - Wood
  • Spleen and Stomach - Earth
  • Kidney and Urinary Bladder - Water

Pretty simple also, right? All of these must be memorized in order to be used in Kyusho Jitsu, and ultimately self defense effectively. But there is a whole lot more to this!

With this in mind I have a great opportunity for you! Below is a link where you can go and watch my 10 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu Attack with the Cycle of Destruction Video! Just follow the link and enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Humane Self Defense

Humane Self Defense

Humane Self Defense

Humane Self Defense

So what do I mean by Humane Self Defense? First I am going to make a statement. Some will not agree with me and that is fine. I have ZERO concern or compassion for the person who attacked me. That is NOT what Humane Kyusho Jitsu is about. People make decisions, and attacking me is BAD one, and they alone are responsible for their action. No one else. I do not buy this victim crap today.

However life is more complicated than that! If I go too far then I am in trouble. Thus the NEED for this information.

Big Brother is Watching

With people having a video camera on every cell phone BIG BROTHER is really watching! People are also very big on LYING about things that happen to protect the attacker because he is a friend, blah, blah, blah.... So if I start smashing this guy in the face, I am going to have serious legal issues if someone with a camera does not like my hair, or chooses to lie about what is happening.

Humane Kyusho Jitsu allows me to control a situation, without the appearance of doing damage. Cause unbelievable levels of pain, that look as if I am doing almost nothing!

Then if things go BAD, I am in control and can escalate to deal with the situation!

Humane Kyusho Jitsu

We have 2 GREAT products! One in eBook form and the other in video. This is a course for learning about humane pressure point / kyusho jitsu tactics you can use in your root art today! Later this year I will be releasing an advanced level! This will resume where the beginners stuff leaves off!

Here are links to the eBook and the Video! But the great news is this. Right now if you wish to purchase one or both of these products, and use the promo code "humane" you get 20% OFF!

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment below! I can also be reached by email at master@kyushojitsu.ca.

Have a great day!
