Martial Arts and Self Defense is a Mind Game

Young woman is fighting with thief on street. Self defense concept.

The other day I got a comment on an ad I am running on Facebook for the free kyusho jitsu mini course. It was that theory like this I am offering is of no use because you need to be in a dojo training it.

Now my response was not kind, becasue aside from stating the obvious, and I promote my product to “martial artists” who I hope are training, but this man to me proves he is a raving MORON.

Why you ask?

Have you ever been attacked with a real gun, a live knife or a baseball bat with intent to kill in a dojo? Of course not! So this idiot needs to get off the high horse, that he has no business on and just shut his ignorant mouth!

Ever great athlete in this world got to where they are in 2 different ways. One was sincere hard work, on the field, court, training floor or what have you. The second? They saw it repeated in the “theater of the mind.” where they always had success, always won, and lived the dream. One never happens without the other!

My response to him was that I have never seen a real knife attack in a dojo, but I have had it happen to me on 2 occasions on the street, where it matters, and I am still here! So talk about what you know, not what your uneducated opinion is!

Now normally I get ignore dickheads, but this guy was barely out of puberty and I get tired of these “clueless” people with opinions. His limitation can affect someone else and cause them to not believe in their own amazing potential.

He did not respond.

Wanna be a GREAT martial artist? You must train all aspects! The BODY in the dojo, the MIND with knowledge which is applied in the dojo and VISUALIZE your result! If you fail, then you keep training!

For my hundreds of students, get out and train the learning, ask questions and see your success in your mind. Leave the “wannabes’ in the dust!

Have a great week everyone!

Kyusho Jitsu Learning and Are YOU Teachable?

Something I have always noticed with many, many martial artist, and masters. They become unteachable! This is a sad reality, but it is not just in our industry, but really it is everywhere.

I have prided myself in remaining “teachable.” That is why I have been so fortunate as to have so much shared with me by some great men and women, in all areas of life! I am very wise because I know that I don’t know very much on a grand scale!

Are you teachable? If yes, then you also realize that the martial art system or style you practice and/or teach is NOT complete. None of them are! One day at a seminar I met Leon Jay. The son of the late Professor Wally Jay. Now Professor Jay founded an art called Small Circle Jujitsu which is very effective! Leon asked me what style I taught and then added “you know it is not complete?” I told him that was why I was there. He spent 2 days teaching me so much, aside from the seminar stuff.

He said “you are so teachable.”

Leon Jay is also a Kyusho Master.  Now if you are one of those who see that everything we do is always in need of progress then you may want to look at adding Kyusho Jitsu to your current system. The beauty is you don’t need to change your movement, just increase awareness of what is truly happening within it.

Every system of old has pressure point usage in it. But it is waiting to be awakened by the motivated student and teach.

Article on Kyusho Self Defense in Black Belt Magazine

This is a really great article! I had posted it the other day on my Pressure Points Canada Blog, but the blog is down and “support” is not answering emails.  But I will deal with that this weekend.

However this is an article on using pressure points in real self defense situation. It features a friend from DKI by the name of Dusty Seals. He is a Chicago police officer and can give an excellent perspective on things for you!

Enjoy!

I have written about a conversation I had with Dusty at the training camp in 2011 regarding him dealing one on one with a man on PCP’s and that Pressure Points saved his life.

Have a great day!

Today Street Safety is More Important than EVER!

You have probably notice that violence on our streets is on the rise.  In fact it is becoming epidemic in proportion. The time really has come when you need to be concerned about the safety of your loved ones.

The problem with violent crime is that anyone can be a victim of it. Many times martial artists believe they are prepared, when in fact they are not. Why? Because the illusion that ring fighting skills will work on the street, when in fact they will get you killed.

Many years ago in my home town there was a TKD Black Belt, a very talented man, who did very well in competitions stopped a robbery of a woman in front of his apartment. Now this is back in the mid 70’s long before the sport surge in TKD that crippled it as a self defense art.

After foiling the robbery attempt he chased the man on foot to try to apprehend him. They guy ducked around a corner waiting for the wood-be hero and then gutted him as he rounded the corning.

One dead, misguided hero. Under the illusion he was prepared for a real attack.

Much of what is tough today is purely for competition and not real self defense. However the movements you do practice can be used for real defense, with a few changes being made.

The addition of REAL pressure point knowledge is the answer! Take a look at my eBook on turning Kyusho Jitsu Theories and Principles into REAL and EFFECTIVE self defense applications!

What is in your Self Defense Tool Kit?

What is in your Self-Defense Toolkit?

What is in your Self Defense Tool Kit? How sure are you of its effectiveness?

My first instructor was a BIG man. He was 6’4″ of solid lean muscle. He could do things, amazing things that even after 16 years I could not pull off. These things could very well have worked for him if he was attacked on the streets, but not for me. and thus the problem!

Today he is much older, with back problems. Many of the weapons will / would not longer work because of age and health. More is needed!

For the last 20 years of my 32 years in the arts I have been concerned and studied “street defense.” The real thing, not fights or sport, but if someone decides to rob you, kill you, or just beat you because they don’t like your face. This is the reality of much of the world today!

Pressure Point study, or Kyusho Jitsu is the GREAT equalizer! It is a system that you add to your root art, to make everything you do more effective, no matter how age and injury treats you. It is something that can be passed on to students to help them be SAFE in our real world!

It makes martial arts WORK.

The NEED for Pressure Points in Today’s Self Defense Instruction

Elbow to Stomach 5

I have been around a long time, seen and done a lot of things. Been in the wrong place at the wrong time many times. I know what the world is really like!

Today sport martial art thrives! However this is NOT the reality of street! I can take the worlds best into the streets of Detroit and they will be eaten alive! Many martial arts instructors leave these people with the idea in their heads that they are “tough” guys, but I am sorry, no there are not!

The truth of street defense is also not “fighting” either.  It has nothing to do with 2 or more guys having their egos clash and they pair off. It is about being in the wrong place at the wrong time and being attacked, by one or many, perhaps with knives and/or guns also.

I have unfortunately seen it all!

Pressure Points training, especially for the martial artist can be a great equalizer! How do I know this? Experience…. one time at the airport in Maiquetía “Simón Bolívar” International Airport just outside of Caracas Venezuela I had a man try to force me to go outside this him, first with intimidation, then force. It however cost him an elbow as it folded like paper after TW-11 was attacked. He ran screaming, the police at the airport watched with disinterest.

The best part is it was so fast, no one really knew what happened.

So it is worth the effort to add pressure point training to your martial art learning and systems? What is this type of thing had happened to you? What if your kids were with you? This is NOT my only dance either.

Pressure point training is the great equalizer, but it is no quick fix. There is no free lunch, no quick fix anywhere for anything that has value. I can help compensate for age, size, and health issue. Time takes it tole on everyone. Martial arts is about getting better with age, not regressing.

To learn more about how this amazing system could one day save your life check out the links below.  Martial arts school owners especially! You own your students the best possible self defense system you can teach. That means one that is always growing and changing with the times.

Below is a link for the 4 different option to learn this amazing system we call kyusho Jitsu.

Ever More Chances to Learn Pressure Points

All of our different pressure point sites have one thing in common. Spreading the word, and helping those who wish to learn the pressure point art and science we call Kyusho Jitsu as easy as possible!

The truth is there is a BIG lack of qualified teachers available from all parts of the world. Even in the USA and the UK there are not enough teachers to fill the demands.

Many dojo’s will at great expense host weekend Kyusho seminars and bring the big names in to teach at them. Men like my instructor GM Steve Stewart and George Dillman to name a few. But depending where you live, after this it can be hard to continue your study without great expense and travel.

That was how I learned. Driving monthly to see GM Stewart.  I did that for 10-12 years. It was well worth the time, the effort and the expense! He is amazing! Not only a lifetime martial arts, and school owner, but also a doctor of acupuncture. So you can image the depth of his knowledge!

However not everyone can do this! So I created many programs and courses to help people just like you, who want to learn, but time, distance and money can be an issue.

My most recent creation, to try to bring all this information together is Kyusho Jitsu University. At the learning site you have 4 different options for membership. Now I am not going to go into all of it right here. Just lick the like below and you will see it all in once place.

Learn Kyusho Jitsu!

Below is a video I did explaining the University and the project itself. It is about 11 minutes long.  Also consider subscribing to our YouTube site by clicking the YouTube logo in the video.
