Are you aware of our Kyusho Jitsu World LiveStream every Saturday on YouTube? This is a 2 hour live event in which you can chat with us, ask questions, and have some fun! This coming week we have a special guest too, the martial arts woman, Andrea Harkins. I am really excited talking with her!
The stream is held every Saturday at 12:00pm Eastern Time, which is Toronto. Now I realize with 24 time zones world wide not everyone can make it. Here is a replay of this past Saturdays stream.
How to Join Us
If you would like to join us on YouTube, and subscribe to our Channel you can receive notification of our daily and weekly uploads. There is a wealth of FREE content there I know you will not want to miss. Here is the LINK to our YouTube Channel.
We are very active making video for our students, hence you can get a great learning experience when you join in with us. First of all there is our Weekly Kyusho Jitsu Vidcast. You will find that each Monday. Most of all we have the Kyusho Question of the Day, as well as the Daily Kyusho Fact for you! But in conclusion you will not want to miss our Friday’s Kyusho Tip of the Week! This will help you Kyusho-ize your techniques.
I found this today while doing some reading online, it covers Self Defense Basics, how to escape from an attacker. Now while I don’t agree with all of it, the info-graphic is certainly worth a look.
Attack the Attacker
While that is the idea with a self defense situation in which you cannot run the things in the picture I would argue against. I have found over the years this is usually taught by someone in law enforcement or a long time martial arts instructor. The issue is simply, the picture denotes attacking “vital” areas of the body, which are automatically defended by the subconscious mind. Even the sidekick to the knee is not placed correctly for maximum results. Odds are all this will fail. Failure cannot be a option.
So what is my points?
All of these Self Defense Basics could be vastly improved with addition of striking pressure points rather then “vital” targets. Switching the targets to pressure point rather then vital areas does not complicate things, rather it makes it pimplier. The problem is 95% of martial arts and for sure law enforcement do not know this information.
So if you are someone concerned about self defense, doing it not talking about it, there is a lot of talk today, shoot over to the link below and take a look at the book there. Humane Kyusho Jitsu. This is a great place to begin to truly make self defense work!
They say that nothing is free anymore, but there is Free Kyusho Jitsu for anyone interested. Now it is not a certification course, therefore it will not make an instructor out of you. But there is lots and lots of free information that can get you started.
How Popular is the Course?
Well the currently count in the course is 1165. Now not everyone is active which is too bad. We are talking about a very important subject which is keeping your family and you safe. Adding the science of pressure point self defense to your current martial art style is a game changer! People do leave, that is fine. I really only want serious people in there. Better to have 50 real students than 1100 so so students. I have to laugh too, sometimes I get messages from people when they decide to leave. My favorites are “no time.”That means on of 2 things, you are too lazy to do it, or personal safety is not a priority.
So today I am going to give you guys 2 choices. Below are 2 links, a RED link to join the FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course, and a Blue Link to go back search google for other things.
Perhaps the most ambitious and important work I have yet to do the Encyclopedia Of Kyusho Jitsu is coming Spring 2018! For the Kyusho Jitsu Student there will be nothing like it anywhere!
What is it about?
This will be an eBook / Phone – Tablet Application reference for everything about the science of pressure point self defense. It will cover the “A” to “Z” of Kyusho Jitsu. Below is a quick breakdown of what I am talking about.
Technical Reference for points, and meridians
Reference for Principles and theories.
Alarm Points, Associated Alarm Points, Special Alarm Points
History of Kyusho Jitsu
Information on Teachers
Terms with definitions for reference
Charts and graphs
Links to Video for reference
And much more as the work progresses!
How Does It Work?
First there will be a PDF eBook that you can print out and bind that goes from A-Z with Kyusho. So as an example if you wanted to reference Alarm Points that would be under “A.”
In the phone or tablet application you will have “hyperlink” references to a “private”members only website that will deliver the requested content right to your phone, hence making referencing anything Kyusho easy!
The great news about this very ambitious project is I am going to offer a VERY limited preorder for it. This project will require hundreds of hours of work, and is slated for release in Spring 2018.
The price upon release for the package including the application for Android or iPhone will be $159.00. But for a SHORT TIME you can preorder for $25! The preorder price will be increasing to $59 soon, so don’t wait to order!

Time for an update on the Dim Mak Project. My research on the subject is finally finished. Now I am in the process of sorting out what will go in and what is not needed. It is removing the folklore from the facts basically. This won’t take very long. After this I will assemble to eBook and release it. No date, it will just be a surprise!
What is the Dim Mak Project?
The Dim Mak Project is not an eBook about the legends. There are enough of those on the market for the world to enjoy. It is also not really a how to manual either. It is a look at “HOW” the death touch is possible, and “WHY” is can be done. Someone with a solid martial arts and pressure point background can easily put the information together and make it work if they chose to do so. As a result I am going to limit release of this material once completed.
Limited Release of the eBook
When the eBook is completed it will be immediately available to those people who have pre-ordered it. But I must say this eBook does make me a little nervous. For someone to use the materials in the eBook would require some dedicated work on their part. Those who have been in the arts a long time understand what dedicated, committed training means. Consequently very soon I am going to end the pre-order and put the price of the eBook up to the $197 I have listed it at.
Why then this Book?
I am writing this eBook mostly for my own learning. When you write a book or do a video it is very much like teaching and helps you internalize the information yourself. But everyone on the preorder list are dedicated martial artists, most running their own Dojo’s so I am not concerned about them
Learn More Here
I am very serious about this Project. We have a Facebook page and a Facebook Group dedicated to it. Furthermore this eBook is only the first part of the Dim Mak Project. If you follow the link below you can learn more about the work. You can also join a mail list to be updated directly on the progress of the entire project. Plus there will be an end date there for the pre-order price.
There are many Orphaned Kyusho Students out there. I know this for a fact. Many of you disagree with some of the larger associations, mostly because of politics. I have also heard complains from many of lack of support / help, and at times a condescending attitude. As a member of the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance this will NEVER happen to you!
Now i am not saying anything against any organization. But this is common feedback I get when people approach me.
Win / Win or No Deal
Once of the tenets for the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is to do business by the philosophy of Win / Win or no deal. In any good to great martial arts school or dojo it is important that the students become a “strong group”and support each other. When that does not exist, the head of the school is at fault.
We have different positions above the basic membership. Director is the one that comes to mind. This is the person in charge of a region or country. However there does need to be some requirements for the position. The most important is they are now or are working towards becoming a certified instructor under the KJWA.
Believe me that is a Win / Win!
Come and Join Us!
Are you one of the Orphaned Kyusho Students I am talking about? Follow this link to join the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance today. It is FREE! Plus I answer all questions personally. The link will also give you a lot of information on what we are about!
Becoming a Director
These are volunteer jobs, however it puts you in a great position to be able to become a high profile Kyusho Jitsu Teacher, and make some good money doing so. Directors and Certified Kyusho Instructors have the FULL support of the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance. I help with everything imaginable to make you successful! That includes special “marketing materials and advice.”
Normally the instructor certification process is expensive. However right now, for a few more days I have cut the price by about 90% or more. You can read all about this from the link below.
If you would like more information on Directorship with the KJWA please email me at email@example.com
As you begin your journey through the science of pressure point self defense you will find understanding Kyusho Jitsu can be a challenge. Some parts will come easy, while other elements will give you problems. There is a lot to learn!
For me in my first year it was the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle. I hated it! I had a big problem remembering it, forget being able to applying it! After my first year I hoped it would kinda just go away. But it persevered, so I was forced to learn it! Today I am perhaps the best, if not one of the best at understanding and applying this principle.
What Principle Gives you Trouble?
There is always one principle that will give everyone some trouble. If you are lucky just one! But you also have to be honest about it. Understanding Kyusho Jitsu takes time, and requires you to focus on the weak areas, not just the strong one. Which by the way is human nature. People tend to focus on what is easy, not what is hard. That is why I succeeded so well in Kyusho Jitsu. I was obsessed and still am, with understand all the concepts and principles.
Where are you Weak?
So what part of Kyusho Jitsu, which principle gives you the most trouble? Yin and Yang? Perhaps the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle like me? Some things you will pickup very quickly, others…..well no.
I do have a solution for you! I spend about 10 hours per day working on Kyusho, promoting Kyusho, answering questions about kyusho, therefore I have ways to help you!
Back in August I began a video series on the 15 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu, broken down into a video for each principle. This allows the student to focus on the weak areas, and not have to worry so much about the strong parts. Each video is done in a classroom lecture style presentation, with demonstration if needed.
15 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu
If you follow the link below it will take you to the page where I have a breakdown of each principle by video. This way you can pick and chose what interests you! Not everything is available just yet, but we are about 60% done, so check back often!
Let talk about Self Defense Kyusho and Knockouts! There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to self defense, therefore a lot of mistakes are made. This is in part the fault of movies, video games and martial sport. The other misconception is that a “street fight” and self defense are the same thing. But they are NOT.
What is a Fight?
First lets define a “fight.” A fight is a decision to do battle. Regardless of the reason, choices are made. Most of the time this has to do with BIG egos and is often a war over words. Someone who is very into the “sport” aspects of martial arts can do very well in a fight. Especially when they are training and at the top of their game. Fighters will often get into trouble as they age.
Self defense in Canada is defined as:
noun: self-defence or Self Defence
the defense of one’s person or interests, especially through the use of physical force, which is permitted in certain cases as an answer to a charge of violent crime.
“he claimed self-defense in the attempted murder charge”
A self defense situation means in all cases defense is NOT A CHOICE. You are caught off guard in most cases and must fight back to protect your life. This attack MUST be ended quickly as escalation can bring weapons into play as well as the potential of the attackers “friends” or gang becoming involved. The longer it lasts the more dangerous the situation becomes.
Solutions to the Issue
Self Defense Kyusho and Knockouts are therefore chained together irrevocably! The person who is attacking you has a lot on the line if they are caught or stopped. A lot more than a simply assault charge for fighting. Often these people are multiple offenders and can be looking at a life sentence for their next offense. Therefore Kyusho becomes a game changer.
The human body can take a lot of trauma and keep going, therefore you must know what works and use it. I find it funny when I hear fighters talk about how their “power” will save them, when they can beat someone in a ring for 3 rounds and they keep coming! Striking nerve bundles, or pressure points where we know the results, because of not just Kyusho Principles but medical data become of paramount importance!

Yes there certainly is a Kyusho Jitsu Controversy! But really there should not be! Our world is such that people who really should not have an opinion, are the first ones to give opinions. Perhaps it is because of the overwhelming amount of information available to us today.
So why a Kyusho Jitsu Controversy? Simply put, those who attack Kyusho have either failed in their attempts to learn it, or are so egotistical they cannot imagine not know everything. This makes Kyusho a threat to their low self esteem!
What is really sad in the martial arts community, especially with the “older” generation, who should be wiser , this behavior is rampant. I can recall many years ago inviting an well known “grand master” to an event only to be told, “I don’t attend seminars, I give them.” Too bad he was such a closed minded person. There is always something to learn and he missed out. At the same event, there were 3 – 10th Dan 50 year men in attendance.
Ignoring the “Good Opinion” of Others
Like anything else in life, as martial artists and teachers we need to learn to ignore good opinions that are negative and do not fit our personal path. Follow what feels right to you!
The science of pressure point self defense is critical to effective self defense. The integration of the principles of Kyusho Jitsu changes everything for any martial art style or system. There is no glory in self defense, only win or lose. Losing is not an option and they only assurance is preparation. If you are new to Kyusho Jitsu check out our FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course from this LINK,
If you have been involved in Kyusho Jitsu for a while consider joining us at the KJWA and becoming a Certified KJWA Instructor today. it has never been easier!
When it comes to knife attacks and knife defense there is no glory like you see in movies and on a video game. With Kyusho Knife Defense “winning” means you are still alive at the end of the altercation. Any other thoughts are foolish and dangerous!
I was asked recently by a few people if the book includes knife disarms. NO IT DOES NOT. The idea of disarm again shows that the people teaching have never been attacked in real life. Disarm happens as a result of a dislocated elbow, shoulder, or broken leg. However the REAL goal is to render the attacker UNCONSCIOUS or dead depending on the circumstances.
Knife attacks are a 10!
A knife attack is a 10/10 escalation, and not any kind of game. When I see a knife I know my life could be ending and I treat it that way. No compassion or thoughts about the person doing the attacking. They made the decision and so the karma is there’s. This is one reason why the “psychology of self defense “ is so important.
The first thing that needs to be in your mind is to escape! This is not a “tough guy competition” and losing can mean death. This is why in the new eBook which will be out in a few days I am teaching some movement. You cannot “STAND” and fight as I often see in some combat systems. Remember people you are NOT “Navy Seals or SAS!”
Sometimes the option is not there to escape! So the situation must be dealt with and dealt with quickly! You must know “where and how” to hit exactly, and train for it! This “person” needs to be OUT ASAP!
What are your odds? Well without the proper information and training, should it come down to “brass tacks” as the saying goes, not very good.
Does this all seem harsh? There is a reason. Today people are very focused on guns. The reason is because of a political agenda, trying to take away people right to self defense. Whether you are for or against gun ownership, does not change the agenda. But with this focus, knife attacks are being ignored, and this is now and always has been the weapon of choice. I don’t have the stats in front of me, but odds of a knife attack are far greater then gun.
Kyusho Knife Defense
When it comes to knife defense, there are 2 different aspects you need to look at. One is adding Kyusho to your current “ideas” of knife defense, plus look at “movement” that can help to make you safe. Then you need to take a serious look at the Psychology of Self Defense to make sure you are prepared!
