Please forgive me because I will sound very Canadian doing this!  If you have questions let me know!

College Level Kyusho Jitsu

Now in Canada College is "applied" arts and science.  People go to college for trades and many other things like nursing, accounting etc. We have what I consider to be college style courses in our Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Courses, and our Instructor Certification Courses.  Here will can create Black Belts and Teachers. Below are 2 links to the 2 main programs within this!

Our Kyusho Jitsu University

Now this is based on the idea of the setup in Canada. A University is a place for the highest level of learning. An example is to get a doctorate in some field. Kyusho Jitsu University offers everything in the college level plus a lot more!

Why Train in Kyusho Jitsu?

​Why Train in Kyusho Jitsu

Why Train in Kyusho Jitsu

Why Train in Kyusho Jitsu

So why train in Kyusho Jitsu? No one does anything unless there is a benefit for them in doing so. This is human nature. Let's take a look at the answer.

First Kyusho Jitsu is not a full martial art. It is a system that enhances the martial art you are taking making the self defense aspects much more effective.  Plus of course it is an intellectual study which is a great bonus!

Why is Kyusho important?

  1. Makes up for size difference! This is the way martial arts is supposed to be! They used to say size does not matter. Kyusho makes this true!
  2. Aging, the old body clock! When we are young we think we are invincible! Today martial arts training is very physical fitness oriented and that is great! But, it cannot be maintained throughout life. Injuries and aging play a huge role. Kyusho Jitsu is the equalizer!
  3. Expands the understanding of your training! Kyusho Jitsu gives you the opportunity to get a deep understanding of the movements in your system, without having to change them!

Distance Training

One of the big problems with learning Kyusho Jitsu is getting exposure to a teacher. However since that is such a challenge we have worked very hard to create downloadable course so people can learn, progress and certify in Kyusho Jitsu.

Kyusho Home Study Course

This is the perfect course for martial artists who wishes to develop a solid working foundation in the science of pressure point self defense. This cover everything I teach in the first year of training in my Dojo at a fraction of the cost!

​Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Courses

This is for the martial arts teacher/school owner who would like to add this knowledge to their current programs. It is a great way to supplement your schools income, as well as keeping adult students motivated!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me! I can be reached via email at master@kyushojitsu.ca or you may comment below! Please share our posts with like minded friends on social media!

My First Kyusho Knockout was an Accident

​My First Kyusho Knockout

Kyusho Knockout

Kyusho Knockout

Yes that is correct, my first Kyusho Knockout was a total accident! I was in Toronto attending an all day seminar by several presenters and I knocked out one of my students totally by accident! Here is what happened.

The presenter was the late Soke Ray Hayes of ​Whitby Ontario. He was a 10 Dan Black Belt in Kempo as was teaching a session on movement in the Octagon. This was actually my introduction to these concepts, which later became a cornerstone of my teachings! As I was practicing the routine he was showing I accidentally, but lightly hit my Uki on the side of the chin. He WAS OUT!

Soke Hayes say this and commented, "oh nice you hit ST-05, a pressure point." Well to say that was not a quantum leap weekend for me was an understatement! Not only did I come home with Octagon Theory, but also tasted the science of pressure point self defense!

Kyusho Knockouts

Pressure Point / Kyusho Knockouts work! At this point I had no exposure to the science of pressure point self defense and this was NOT a Kyusho Jitsu Seminar! I was HOOKED! This opened my eyes to many possibilities for training and self defense!

Also this was a one hit knockout, which I found really fascinating! There is a reason this is possible too! If you want to learn more about what I call "one hit knockouts" follow the link below and checkout my eBook on Understanding Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts.  

The best news is that the information in this eBook can easily be added to your current system of self defense! If you have any questions feel free to comment below.  Also please share this post with your friends on social media!

Kyusho Blast from the Past

Kyusho Blast from the Past

I was doing some searching yesterday on google and hit a Kyusho Blast from the Past! This is an OLD video from back in 2009 I believe of me talking about the Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course. This was the original, non certification course. I have to admit it sold much better than I expected it would!

I am sharing the video with for as a reminiscence of old times!

Updated Home Study Course

Back in 2017 I did a revamp of the old Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course. Some materials I kept, some I updated. But when we re-released the course we made it a FULL Kyusho Jitsu Novice Certification Course.

The idea behind was to held the martial art student who did not have access like I did to a physical teacher in the real world. This course enable them to learn and progress and optionally test for rank. Grading is included with the course.

The response to this course has been even better! If you would like to learn more about the Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Series follow the link below!

Why get a Kyusho Black Belt?

Shares

​Kyusho Black Belt

Kyusho Black Belt

​Kyusho Black Belt

Why get a Kyusho Black Belt? Over the years I have heard many people say they just want the knowledge and that the rank does not matter to them. I can appreciate this! In a way I think the same. However as I look back in my martial art career, all the arts I have studied to add to my root art, I have received my Black Belt 25 times.

Now this is not a "bragging point." There are many career martial artists can blow this out of the water! But it does have a meaning. Lets get into it!

Goal Seeking is our Nature

People are different from animals. We all have a survival and reproduction instinct. But humans have something else. We have a need to learn, to grow, to develop and be successful! Goal setting is in our nature, in our programming. Everyone does this, but some people more than others!

Achievements like getting a Black Belt fill this need to expand horizons. Success breeds more success! It builds confidence, and increases desire to keep going throughout life. One success really does lead to another! it all gets down to how we think! This is the reason we have a belt system for kids!

​Not Everyone Sets Goals

I had a long discussion one day in Ann Arbor Michigan with my business coach Keith Hafner. We talked about "street people" and why this happens to them.  People who live these horrible lives of poverty have one thing in common. The can only "think" a few hours into the future. Things like "how will I eat today?" They do not see anything else. They set goals, but these goals have no distance!

​The average person sees the future, but they tend to think month to month. They have long term goals, but they do not focus on them.

The successful person sets goals daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and long term. Plus it is the VICTORIES along the way like getting a Black Belt that keep them inspired and moving forward!  Success leaves clues, and this post is a BIG clue!

At the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance we are all about education. ​So how does someone without a physical instructor available? Well we have you covered! Plus this is the REAL DEAL! A Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course including everything you need to achieve a Black Belt and hang a certificate on your wall!

Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts

Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts

Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts

Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts

I am really not sure why Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts are controversial. Especially when at the end of the day they are simply just neurological based knockouts. This happens when the brain is overloaded via the central nervous system and essential reboots.

Back when I was in grade school a nurse came into the school from the Ministry of Health in Ontario Canada to give us a shot. One of the boys fainted when he SAW the needle. This was a neurological "pass-out" due to an overload of the system. What overload was this? Triple Warmer, the endocrine system, his strong emotional reaction to the situation cause him to pass-out. 

What about that fantastic kick to the head you saw the other night on TV during the "big fight?" They had been going at it for 3 rounds when suddenly a round kick came out of nowhere and the fight was over! "He never saw it!" That is right, that is why the brain shut down and rebooted, to protect itself from further serious injury.Had he seen it, the effect would have been different. Had a "nerve" been hit, seeing it would not have mattered!

So tell me, why are you not studying this?   Because you listened to the opinion of someone who does not know?  

Understanding Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts

Now I always speak ​plain. I am known for saying what is on my mind. Right or wrong, and it is a reason for my success too! Neurological Knockouts WORK despite what those too lazy to study it say. Now that we are past that I am going to give you a great chance to get started learning this for FREE!

I have a course I don't talk about much. It is a FREE course, with 3 videos to get you started on the path to learning, understanding and applying the use of Neurological Knockouts in your current martial arts style or system. Just fill out the form below, verify your email and your first lesson will arrive within minutes!

ACT NOW!

Down the Rabbit Hole

​Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole

How far Down the Rabbit Hole do you want to go? The world we live in is a complex thing. And if science was interested in more than government and corporate funding many more things would be understood. Would be clear. But that is not going to happen. WE must do the work ourselves!

The human body is also the same. Medical science knows a lot, but they won't admit they do not know everything!

Down the Rabbit Hole

Kyusho Jitsu, being that it is focused on "unseen" things like the neurological system, and body energy, it is in itself controversial and a trip down the rabbit hole! Especially as we get to advanced aspects of it! I call it the science of pressure point self defense because the results when researched can be replicated and predicted. Nothing is perfect! Medical science certainly is NOT. Otherwise we would have have people on anti-psychotic drugs committing serial murders!

But the question was how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go? Are you an advanced Kyusho Jitsu practitioner? You may very well want to take a look at the high end of all "pressure points/neurological/Chi" studies.

That is the Dim Mak Project! Follow the links below and learn all about a modern look at an ancient study!

Teaching Kyusho Jitsu in your Dojo

​Teaching Kyusho Jitsu

Teaching Kyusho Jitsu in your Dojo

Teaching Kyusho Jitsu in your Dojo

I first began Teaching Kyusho Jitsu in my Dojo back in 2004 I think it was. Honestly it was long enough ago I really don't recall exactly. When I first began the learning process it was not really my intention to teach classes in it separately. I was really looking for personal knowledge and integration into my root art.

But when I saw what GM Stewart was doing with it. I knew it was going to be GOLD for my school! And as a school owner, no matter how dedicated we are to the "training" it costs money to turn the key. So as soon as I was able I began my own study groups.

My First Study Group

My first study group was about 12 people in size. I held a once per month session that ran about 2.5 hours in length. I found this to be the perfect time as people ended up saying "wow that was fast" and not looking at their watches because the class was too long. They could not wait for the next session! Soon I had people asking when they could join too. I was shocked at the power this program had in my school.

Everybody Quits

The problem with running a martial art school, especially full time is everybody eventually quits. Not only do we usually take this personally, but it leaves a hole in the school and depending on the person others may follow.  Before Kyusho Jitsu my adult quit rate was about 5% per month. Now that is HIGH! Your class will shrink very quickly at this rate. Some schools are as high as 10% and more!

But once I added "kyusho" study groups, and began implementation of the science of pressure point self defense into my program my adult quit rate dropped to about 1%!

Why? The teaching and learning is motivational and challenging. Most adults quit because they get BORED!

Kyusho Today

Today at my Dojo in Canada I am not sure how many Kyusho Jitsu Black Belts we have in total. I have made so many over the years I have lost track. My Kyusho Study Group is being run monthly by my senior Black Belts, who are now also Kyusho Masters. The program has been running since about 200​4, or 200​5 and has always had students in it! 

Are my results typical? I think that most people could do much better than I did! I was operating 4 locations, plus other programs what were not so successful! But the great news is if this is something you wish to do, to add to your program I am here to help you along the way!

I have systems that when followed give a clear path to success! This is not something you buy and get a good luck pat of the back.  I am here all the way to support you!

Follow this LINK below and learn more today! Adding Kyusho Jitsu to your school and programs is not as expensive as you might think! Plus I do offer payment plans for those who wish! (interest free too).

Kyusho Jitsu and Stances

​Kyusho Jitsu and Stances

Kyusho Jitsu and Stances

Kyusho Jitsu and Stances

When you understand how Kyusho Jitsu and Stances work together it opens up a new world of understanding of your root art.  All traditional systems have some type of stances incorporated into them. But very often the student is left out in the cold as to their purpose other than leverage and art form

​Stances and Elements

In the science of pressure point self defense stances are very important. Not only are they an advanced principle but also a foundation. Each stance has a specific relationship to an element thus making them an effective attack method.

Here is a breakdown:

  1. Forward Bo - Fire Stance
  2. Neutral Bo - Fire Stance
  3. 45 Degree Cat - Metal Stance
  4. Horse Stance Toes Out - Wood Stance
  5. Horse Stance Toes Forward - Earth Stance
  6. Cross Over, ​Crane, X-Stances - Water Stance.

Pretty cool eh? There theory is pretty straight forward. Application takes some training and understanding!

However now you can learn more about these stances from our Understand Stances Video Series!  For the price of a fancy coffee you can grab all 6 of these videos!

Plus for a limited time you get some amazing bonuses FREE!

  1. Kyusho Striking Actions
  2. Kyusho Joint Locks!
