Proactive Self Defense [Kyusho]

Today I saw an ad on one of my website for "Proactive Self Defense." So I followed it and discovered it was an ad on Amazon selling personal "tasers." Interesting idea really, but how proactive is this?

The problem with this kind of ad, and the companies that promote them is the lack of integrity in the ad themselves.  Now I have no issues with people arming themselves for self defense purposes. It saddens me to think this is necessary, but in many places it really is!

But there several problems. 

  1. Who will train them to use one? Obviously if they are being sold on Amazon there barriers to purchase are almost non existent! 
  2. Is the carrier aware use can end up being lethal? The use of lethal force has its own legal complications.  Without the proper training mentioned above the odds increase of this happening.  Not to mention the mental issues associated with taking a human life.
  3. What personal training does the "defender" or "carrier" have to avoid unnecessary use of the taser gun? Or will they simply be reactive to the situation and assume harm?

It all gets down to training!

Proactive Self Defense

There is an epidemic today of people discussing the idea of Proactive Self Defense. People are purchasing weapons like the taser or guns, but not doing the real work they need to do, to make sure it really is a step towards Proactive Self Defense. 

There is nothing more dangerous or foolish than carrying a weapon that you have not been FULLY trained to use.  Women carrying "pepper spray" and end up having it taken and used against them! Or they miss, spray themselves due to wind or adrenaline rushes that cause bad judgment. 

Proactive Self Defense

Proactive Self Defense

Wanna carry this? Then you need to be properly trained to use it!

The sale of these products is the result of good marketing, and BAD implementation ideas! Again I restate! I have no issue with people carrying weapons, but the need to be trained!

I have a good friend in the USA, Dr Dan Meadows who trains people in firearms. Look him up from this link if you want to learn more! 

Real proactive self defense is about preparation! What is begin advertised with these taser is really reactive. Want a taser? Do the proper training first!

Proactive Self Defense

Proactive self defense is about preparing for a bad situation, learning to see the warning signs and peacefully dealing with the situation to prevent it from turning to violence. 

You must develop skills to de-escalate a potentially bad situation, taking control of it. Then if this option fails having the tools to control or deal with the violence in a calm and control manner. 

Proactive Self Defense - Stay Away!

Proactive Self Defense - Stay Away!

Thus making sure anyone in the vicinity, as well as yourself remain safe. This may require UP to and including lethal force. But lethal force ONLY when required and allow in by law! Anything else is foolhardy! Unless you wish to end up in a prison yourself.  I personally believe violent criminals should lose their rights! However that is only my opinion. i must by law respect there rights whether I agree or not!

Anything else can land me in jail.

Proactive Self Defense - Personal Safety

There are 2 ways to go about the idea of proactive self defense and personal safety. One is the option most people chose. Which is DO NOTHING.  It is not a "bad" option, you are simply playing the odds nothing will ever happen.

The second is to get off the couch and do the work! Become trained in all aspects of self defense. Real self defense from the ground up! Buying a weapon and then not training is a mistake! It is also a HUGE mistake to not have serious basic self defense training too!

Proactive Self Defense - Basic training.

Now I am not a weapons expert by any stretch of the imagination. I am pretty good with a knife, but I do not consider myself an expert.

However I have a solid solution for unarmed self defense! A program built from the ground up to teach deescalation, and control of bad situations. Plus dealing with the problem if violence does occur! 

Proactive Self Defense - Tip - Put the phone away!

Proactive Self Defense - Tip - Put the phone away!

Self Defense Tip! Put the phone away! Do not do this! Also, never checkin to anywhere that you are! If you want to show your friends where you are do it after you leave!

At Kyusho Jitsu University I am offering a 3 Level Certification Course called Humane Pressure Point Tactics.

Don't let the word "humane" fool you. This simply refers to remaining within the legal bounds of self defense.

In this 3 level course I teach all the basics you need to understand and control BAD situations. Even VERBAL self defense skills are addressed!

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

Ok everyone before you bring out the cross and nails and call me misogynistic let me explain the title first! Back about a month ago I wrote an article called Understanding Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory.  You can read that article here if you missed it! Today let's take a look at Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy.

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

However my plan today is to look at the black half of the Yin-Yang symbol a little more closely. Today the focus in on Yin or female energy. I will be writing a subsequent article on male energy another time.

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

The idea behind the Yin-Yang symbol is to show life as a whole. It is not meant to show division. Each side has part of the other half within it, thus making in a "whole." This is NOT opposites attracting, there are no opposites. They are just part of one whole.

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

I hope I am making this clear. It is a challenging subject to write about! 

Now when people do battle, most of the times it is men.  Now before anyone get touchy this is just statistical fact. More males are involved in violence because they tend to be more aggressive. Not always the case, but mostly.

There are more men in prison for the same reasons. Women in prison are often not for the reasons of "violent crime" but other crimes.  

When Men Fight

When men decide to do battle it is "like energy" against "like energy."  This is one of the reasons that fights can go on a while.  The two combatants will feed off each others energy. Just look at a MMA fight!

But what happens when you complete an energy cycle? Watch this video below. This was from a class I did years ago on Yin-Yang Energies.  The ultimate demonstration of Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy!

Interesting right? And I have never had an occasion I cannot replicate this effect! Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy, when added yields an remarkable result! Now, you are not going to likely as your wife of girlfriend to come and help you in a fight. 

But is shows the POWER of energies and the addition of female to male energy. And also, you can alter this with your mind! Now if you are interested I have a really cool video from a previous course. You can read more about it right here!

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

Kyusho Jitsu Female Energy

Even this symbol has power! Print out one just like this one. This same setup. Put it on your Uki's body and hit them with maybe 40% force on the stomach muscles. The turn the symbol upside down and do it again!

The result will shock you!

These kinds of things are not just an important part of the science of pressure point self defense, it also figures very importantly in my upcoming works on Quantum Kyusho Jitsu!

What is Quantum Kyusho Jitsu?

With all this in mind I am launching on July 1st 2018 something totally new! It is called Quantum Kyusho Jitsu.  On July 1st the first video in the series will be released. As always right now I am giving a discount for anyone who preorders the video.

Verbal Self Defense Skills Are Important!

Shares

Verbal Self Defense Skills

Verbal Self Defense Skills

Verbal Self Defense Skills

Self Defense is not a black and white subject. There are many different facets to it, and one of these is the importance of Verbal Self Defense Skills. Now this seems like a pretty easy topic. But much of what is taught is plain wrong. 

Verbal Self Defense Skills are consider to be a way in which to communicate with a potential attacker to hopefully defuse, de-escalate or end a confrontation. However if there are no physical skills present to go along with these verbal communications the odds are they will not work effectively if at all. Your training needs to be complete as possible and part of a normal routine of fitness. 

Verbal Self Defense Skills

Quite often teachers of these types of Verbal Self Defense Skills will tell people to state "NO" very strongly. But there problem is for the most part this is not going to work! It will have little meaning and the attacker may even consider it humorous. 

Verbal Self Defense Skills

Verbal Self Defense Skills

As I was looking today at some of what is being taught one thing really grabbed my attention. This was the idea that somehow all this Verbal Self Defense is a Zen art-form and not manipulative. 

Yeah, NO you are being deliberately manipulative to buy time, delay an action from the attacker and hopefully discourage them enough to move on.  Don't worry about their "feelings" as some people will teach. I don't care at all what happens to this person once they leave my sight! 

Things NOT to do
Verbal Self Defense

Verbal Self Defense

As much as I do not care if this guy steps out on the road and gets hit by a bus you do not want to insult them. Do not feed the anger. Be strong and assertive as well as vert clear with your COMMANDS, "get out of here NOW!!!"

No matter how well trained you are do NOT threaten them with anything, even the police. If someone is with you tell them in a loud voice "call 911 NOW, do you hear me!?!?" No need to address this as a threat to the assailant.  Make them believe you are in charge!  Under most circumstances the attacker wants a easy victim!

Things To Do

Be loud and assertive in your communications! Try to keep your body on a 45 degree angle from the would-be attacker so he or she will need to keep re-positioning to remain  dominant! 

And LOOK THEM IN THE EYES. Not doing this makes you appear like a victim and will encourage pursuit. You can glance away when they speak like you are thinking about what they are saying, but keep them in your peripheral vision at all times. 

Keep your hands up in a non confrontational position, not like picture above! Hand up, at a 45 degree angle, pinkies towards them, hands open! Not far from the body so they can be used to fend off a reach. This also prevent them [you] from being grabbed as easily.

Practice Verbal Self Defense Skills!

You need to practice to get good at this. The very best way to do this is being alone in front of a mirror and just do it! After some time your confidence will grow and you can train this will friends or colleagues depending on your personal situation.

Remember the only reason that this incident has not yet turned to violence is because the attacker has not YET decided to hurt you!

Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense

Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense

Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense

Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense

I believe in the theory that self defense, someone attacking you is like a living breathing entity.  Bruce Lee spoke of this also in his epic book Tao of Jeet Kune Do. And this is what I mean when I am referring to "Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense."

Back in the 80's and 90's I read everything on Bruce Lee I could get my hands on. Many of the books more than once too! I did not care about his "style" or his movie fame. I was interested in the way he thought. 

Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee was an extraordinary thinker. He was someone who was always on the outside of the box!

What is Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense?

This is a different view of self defense. A more all inclusive idea and a way to pursue excellence in the field. There are many, many different reasons why some people win and some people lose when they are attacked on the streets. 

There are many very negative people in the self defense world. The reason is that they reflect their lives and their experience.  Soldiers have been to hell and back, so have police officers.  But there experience is vastly different than what you or I, the average person will ever face!

Why is that? In a confrontation the attacker knows he or she is going to have their hands full with a Cop. They expect a powerful response and therefore are prepared for this. When someone chooses a victim on the streets, they are NOT expecting a formidable response. 

This is our advantage! Long ago I had someone in a bar who was told who I was come up to me and say "you don't look like a Black Belt." When I said "thank you" he was kinda surprised.

Building Blocks of Self Defense

Physical movement is the foundation of self defense. At a foundational level martial arts training is only about movement. It is not about blocks or strikes, it is about understanding how your body moves, and then mastering that movement so that you can respond to someone trying hurt you. 

The more well rounded the training obviously the more different situations can be compensated for.  

The next stage or what should be the next stage is mental preparation.  The mind is everything! If you think you will fail then you will 100%.  Stress types of training are also very beneficial to see how the Flight or Flight reflex will play in. 

The Fight or Flight Reflex

The Fight or Flight Reflex

Understanding the Attacker

The next stage that is involved in Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense is to understand the attacker. In a perfect world you would be able to make some kind of judgement on the attacker from a psychological standpoint. Now this is something I find of great interest so I practice trying to figure out anyone I meet!

However most people give little thought to this aspect of self defense.

But, it is VERY important while training to learn about how an attacker will move, will attack you. And the natural laws that dictate how this all works!  There are several ways to do this, but the most important one will happen on the Dojo floor!

You need a training partner who attacks in a realistic manner.  Now there is a learning curve here, because we deal with a wide range of students.  But in time the attack needs to be full power, and without notice of attack!

Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

Along this path of both understanding the attacker and the defender is where the science of pressure point self defense sits.  It takes the study of movement, the natural laws of motions and adds a way to increase effectiveness. 

It is like going from a car that gets 10 miles to gallon to one that gets 50 miles per gallon. And it does so without a sacrifice of power! So why would you not want it?

Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense

The movement you learn in your Kata all have an application related to Kyusho Jitsu. Many of these moves are deadly also! 

Seeing them is enlightening!

As an example every movement is a Kata has a purpose. But these are not always easy to see! Why is that? Actually the majority, not all, but the majority of women will see these meaning before men? 

Why is that you ask? Because women "tend" to be more right brained, more creative. Men are usually left brained, more logical. But once you begin to see this, then everything falls into place! 

Kyusho Jitsu makes everything you learn in your martial art have meaning and real life usefulness!

As I have told students on many occasions, I am almost possessed by figuring out how to teach people to be successful on the streets, or in their home if they are attacked. 

Hence I have been compiling and working this information quietly for years. But now I am going to begin to make it available! And I am going to call it "Quantum Kyusho Jitsu."

The information will come in a few stages, all in video format.  The first video which is almost ready to go will be released on July 1st 2018. Now there is a reason for this. I am Canadian and it is Canada Day! And I have always done something Kyusho to celebrate it!

What if Pressure Points Really Work?

Shares

What if Pressure Points Really Work?

What if Pressure Points Really Work?

What if Pressure Points Really Work?

Tell me nay-sayers! What if Pressure Points Really Work? Yes I know I can here you now! "I don't need to worry about that because I am an expert on everything!" 

I cannot count the number of times I have been slandered by these clowns. But, I am different, their "opinions" mean nothing to me. How is that? Because I have nothing to prove to anyone, and if they chose to believe that pressure points don't work, I don't really care.

Am I hard on the martial arts world? You are damn right I am! We are supposed to, as teachers and students be held to a higher standard! But I am not seeing much of this!



A Higher Standard!

But what does bother me, is today how the "uneducated" in the science of pressure point self defense scream the loudest, talk the most, but have ZERO education or experience in it!  

And I love those who attended a seminar, got in a fight and lost! Then they blame Kyusho and not themselves.

It is funny how tenets are so often talked about in classes, yet martial arts masters seem to feel these do not apply to them? Interesting eh? 

If you look at the social media accounts of these "masters" they are true "Aren't I great" sites.  Just seems like Narcissistic behavior to me.  

Lose the Ego

More Knowledge the lesser the ego and the lesser the need to be right

But the sad fact is these people have either not bothered to do the study, which is fine as long as you are not trying to influence other people, or they could NOT figure it out.

 They will boldly talk of how they are "right" because there is no medical evidence that "meridians" exist. Yet don't consider why that it? [there is no money in this research]. 

Think for yourself!

The martial arts world has long seen known for being like an "old boys club." I experienced that with my first Grand Master who wanted me to go to a party at his home, but not my wife because she was still a coloured belt then. That boat did not float!

What is the point to this rant? Many times, especially on the disease is that social media Kyusho Jitsu students are "BULLIED" by these clowns.  My message is "think for yourself" and do your own work! Because someone has been in the arts ANY particular time at all, does not translate into what they know or can apply!

Myself I ignore, delete and move on! There "opinions" and these are opinions, mean nothing to me.  Life is supposed to be a journey of learning.  If the egotist would put away their bullshit, shut up and actually "listen" for once, they might learn something. What a concept eh?

Imagine a world that this was the focus? If we would actually drop the "bull" and realize on the grand scheme of things we all know NOTHING, the world would be a better place! As an example I am very well educated in the science of pressure point however I know NOTHING of BJJ, so I don't talk about it.

Now considering Kyusho Jitsu, the science of pressure point self defense DOES WORK these people are missing a lot of great benefits because of their need to be RIGHT rather then be informed! 

Savy?


What if Pressure Points Really Work?

Are you new to Kyusho Jitsu? For those of you who came to this post out of curiosity welcome! And I am sorry for the rant. However sometimes things need to be said! Can you imagine the benefits to you if pressure points really work? 

A real Kyusho Jitsu Education

Kyusho Self Defense For Women

Kyusho Self Defense For Women

Kyusho Self Defense For Women

Kyusho Self Defense For Women

Fact - there are many self defense programs available today for women and most of them fall short of accomplishing anything.  However, the right program with Kyusho Self Defense For Women added to it can work wonders!

So is there specifically Kyusho Self Defense For Women? No there is not! The science of pressure point self defense will work for anyone who does the study correctly from a qualified teacher! 

What is Kyusho Self Defense For Women?

When I speak of this idea I am thinking of an all encompassing program that will truly benefit the student.  However it does need to be a program that can and will work for anyone who take it! 

But when it comes to violent crime women are targeted most often! Therefore we need to discuss the specific needs for women in this article.

One of the issues with this particular subject is much of what is taught is just plain ineffective or BAD.  If you look at the image below you will see some of the things taught that simply do not work!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Kyusho Self Defense For Women

Let's breakdown the ideas here!

1) Knee to the groin. The idea is not bad, the application won't work! Unless the attacker is short the woman is putting herself in a BAD and unbalanced position, striking an area that will have a delay in response, plus increase the adrenaline level, and anger level of the attacker!  Plus this area is instinctively defended!

Solution. Attack Spleen 11, which is a much better angle and will when hit with force drop the attacker and perhaps break the femur. Pressure Points at the knees are also a good target!

2) Elbow to the face.  Even if she successfully hits ST-05 her body mechanics and leverage so bad there will be little to no affect! However she could very easily get a finger or thumb lock which when correctly applied will decrease the attackers cognitive thinking ability by 70%. 

3) Stomping the Instep. I cannot believe this is even taught! The foot can take a lot of abuse! It does everyday! The large bone in the foot is very strong, plus do you really think the attacker is bare foot? This is just BAD. 

The solution is the same, attack the fingers, thumb or hand. The 4th part of the image is OK, but I will discuss this more below.

Kyusho Self Defense for Women - What works
The Truth about Knockouts

Kyusho Self Defense for Women

In the image above the lady is going to use a palm strike to the face. If hard enough this can certainly slow things down however there are better places to strike. She is directly in the line of fire, with the attacker very much able to stop her from striking. 

She could however turn the arm, get far more force and strike in the area of ST-05, or ST-09, ST-10 with an elbow. The movement would also help prevent the attacker from grabbing her arm before the strike.

Now each situation is different, but effectiveness of what is being taught is critical!

Kyusho Self Defense for Women - Awareness
Kyusho Self Defense For Women - Awareness

Kyusho Self Defense For Women - Awareness

Now lets get on to solutions. The first step in any kind of course that hope to teach any group of people about self defense needs to begin with awareness. Unless people pay attention to their surroundings, to their environment they are inviting trouble, and greatly reducing their chance of survival! 

But every day I see people walking down the streets, on their phones totally oblivious to everything going on around them. This invites an attack!

Kyusho Self Defense For Women - Escalation Levels

The next part of the equation when teaching Kyusho Self Defense For Women is escalation! You must learn to see that a potential problem is developing and have the tools and ability to deal with it! 

Kyusho Self Defense For Women - escalation

Kyusho Self Defense For Women - Escalation

You cannot wait till the situation become explosive! In the picture above a lot has gone wrong for things to come to this point! 

Kyusho Self Defense For Women - The Law

In conclusion it is also very critical when teaching the subject of Kyusho Self Defense For Women and for anyone else you discuss the law. No matter who you are, what gender you are, what race you belong to, or any other groups you need to know the law as it pertains to self defense in your area!

Kyusho Self Defense For Women - Know the Law!

Without this part of the training you can say or do the wrong thing and end up with your claim of self defense thrown out and charges laid against you.

It happens every day!

Self Defense Solutions

Yes there is a solution for all of the above! At Kyusho Jitsu University I have a program that covers all of the things discussed here an more!

This is our Humane Pressure Point Tactics Courses. These are 3 different courses which cover the 3 different levels of basic escalation! Plus they are for everyone! Martial artist and non martial artist alike!

Kyusho Self Defense Basics

Kyusho & Self Defense Basics

Kyusho Self Defense Basics

Kyusho Self Defense Basics

There is so much needless controversy and arguing in the martial arts world about self defense it has just become ridiculous!  Everyone is fighting about what works and what does not work, when they are really just missing the point! So today we will discuss Kyusho Self Defense Basics, with the focus on the Self Defense Basics.

Self Defense Basics - They miss the point!

The issue with people arguing about things is they always miss the point! Self Defense Basics is a look at what the building blocks for success actually are. And I see only a handful of people ever address this! So let's look deep today into the topic!

Self Defense Tips

Self Defense Tips

When you fight back never do it for anything that be replaced.  If all this man wants is a purse let him have it! You do not know if he is armed or has friends. Your life is more important than you valuables!

It begins with the defender

The missed point. Everything begins with the defender! Does the person who is seeking to learn, or advance self defense skills have the internal ability to do it! Now everyone has, but with correct "teaching" I believe everyone can! 

Let's look at some points. 

Do they have the confidence to fight back?

Some people are natural born fighters, other are made.  The student must be able to get past the fear of being attack, take advantage of the "fight or flight" reflex and not become a deer in the headlights.

Real Self Defense Success

Self Defense Basics

It is good she has what it takes to fight back! But trying to deliver a knee to the body is a BAD idea! Never do things to compromise your balance and therefore giving the edge back to the attacker!

Over the years I have had students, both male and female who by their very nature could "fight back" without any training at all! Then I have met those who have great ability, but hurting someone, fighting back is not within them.  Yes this can change, but the student must do the work and want the change! You need to understand the Psychology of Self Defense.

Which Martial Art is Best?

The best martial art is the one that feel right to the student, and fits their personality! You are not going to get someone who is shy into a ring as a fighter are you? There is no difference in a self defense martial art!

Self Defense Basics - Which Martial Art is Best?

Self Defense Basics - Which Martial Art is Best?

The better rounded the martial art is, the better the chances of success. But you also need to take into account risk fact for the student. This can also dictate the choice of styles. 

Self Defense Basic Skills First!

Martial Arts instructors often blow it when it comes to teaching self defense. And I do mean BLOW IT. I have done it too! They try to teach too much too soon, and tell horror stories of their encounters. 

The instructor must but the ego aside and realize that because it works for them does not mean it will work for ANYONE else.  Why do I say that? Because I have spent 18 year studying this phenomenon! 

Plus there are topics within self defense basics that must be addressed! Not to address these is a grave disservice to your students! These are...

Self Defense Basics - Know the Law!

Self Defense Basics - Know the Law!

  • The LAW as it pertains to self defense in your country, state and region. And don't assume you know! Look it up! Here is a LINK to what Canadian Law says.
  • Teach escalation! Your student needs to understand what being aware is all about, what sign to look for that are "telltale" that violence is coming!
  • Verbal skills to de-escalate the situation and try to prevent violence.
  • A well laid out self defense system as part of the root art that teaches simple, low risk moves, strike, locks etc to end a situation as fast as possible. Nothing complicated! It takes 3000 repetitions for the average person to achieve muscle memory. Save the advanced techniques for later!
  • Visualization, properly taught stress training and the science of pressure point self defense to enhance the effectiveness of the techniques or movements.
Self Defense Basics

And I believe everyone needs to take a serious look at what they are teaching, and even if it is solid, advance the knowledge. Don't get stuck in a non grow paradigm in which something that was once effective, no longer is!

Now I can help! I have a NEW Course at Kyusho Jitsu University that does all of the above. It is a 3 Level Certification Course that teaches everything from low to life threatening escalation.

Need for Kyusho Teachers

Need for Kyusho Teachers

Kyusho Teachers

Kyusho Teachers Grand Master Art Mason London 2011

There is a great need for Kyusho Teachers in the world today.  And as an entrepreneur and marketer of the martial arts I more than most people understand this need.  So let's take a look at some facts, and some opportunities that exist for those of you with "the right stuff."

Need for Kyusho Teachers - Martial Artists Globally

Over the past 75 years there has been an explosion of martial artists on a global scale. In the USA alone in 2016 there were 3.58 million people involved in some kind of martial arts training. 

Need for Kyusho Teachers - 80/20 Rule

Need for Kyusho Teachers - 80/20 Rule

Many of these are children, however can use the 80/20 rule, which is accurate for most Dojo's and get the fact that about 20% are adults, which means that about 700,000 of participants are adults. The number is likely higher because these numbers will take into account only commercial schools, not one run from churches and rec centers. 

We can also reasonable project the percent of the population in the USA who train in martial arts to other industrialized nations.  I have searched for more exact FREE statistics globally, but I cannot find them. However it is estimated that world wide there about about 2 million active participants in the martial arts. Adult participants. 

Kyusho Teachers and Opportunity

The very fact that the numbers in the martial arts can be difficult to process tells a big story. You can find pretty exact numbers for things like BJJ because that has become a big business. The Gracie's are smart people! And don't be naive and think they are not business people!

Kyusho Teachers & Opportunity

Kyusho Teachers & Opportunity

In the world of business you can find a data list of pretty much anything you would like to find. And if I was willing to spend a ton of cash I could also find more exact figures for martial artists. These would be available from Facebook for sure.

But there is one thing I know, it is a very viable niche market! And the science of pressure point self defense is a niche within a niche.  This makes it GOLD! So why are there not more Kyusho Teachers? 

First martial artist typically make BAD business people.  That is not a popular thing to say, but when I look at a schools statistics, it is clear! 

And there is a high learning curve to Kyusho Jitsu. Plus all the restrictions most organization put on their Kyusho Courses. It is hard to get ahead in the political world of most federations.  This is the main reason I founded the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance. 

But the opportunity is GREAT!

How many Kyusho Teachers are there?
Our Teachers in Spain

Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance Spain

​​​​The Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance in Spain currently has 4 directors, plus many certified Kyusho Jitsu Teachers with many more currently in training!

If you have been in Kyusho Jitsu for a while you will quickly realize just how disproportionate the Kyusho Teachers to martial artist ratio actually is. I personally can think of only about a dozen people who are really pushing and teaching Kyusho Jitsu. This includes me, and I think I am the only one these days doing this full time. I could be wrong, but I don't think so.

One reason for the lack of numbers and growth is because of the terrible job of promotion of the science of pressure point self defense being done.  

Too many "flamboyant" and "mystical" demonstrations.  And I am going to say it too! Often times too many seminars focused on booking more seminars, and not enough great content! I can think of one time I personally drove a long distance for an advanced session and leg points were taught.  This was so disappointing!

There is not enough focus on real self defense and especially the STUDENT! My personal mandate as Founder of the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is to change that! 

Kyusho Teachers - Do you have the "right stuff."

Do you think this golden opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the revolution in the way Kyusho Jitsu is taught might be for you? 

You need to be a motivated person who is not afraid of work! As I have said there is a BIG learning curve to the science of pressure point self defense. However the benefits are enormous!  Yes, I will talk about those benefits in a link I am going to give you.

With such a big market, the martial arts world. Plus security, there is still a lot of room for growth and great success for martial artist as Kyusho Teachers!

If you think this opportunity is for you, then follow the link below here and read about the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance Instructor Certification Courses.  You will be very happy you did!

You will have Questions?

If you follow the link above and read about getting in on this ground floor opportunity you will have questions. Feel free to email me at master@kyushojitsu.ca and ask away! That is why I am here!

New Self Defense Paradigm

New Self Defense Paradigm

New Self Defense Paradigm

New Self Defense Paradigm

I believe it is time for a New Self Defense Paradigm! As I have said on many different occasions what I see being taught as self defense is either pure trash, or antiquated and very out of touch with the world today.

Yes the student of self defense does have a "learning curse" that must be addressed. But if the system does not go beyond this, then it is a FAIL. And I speak from experience because from a self defense aspect what I learned in my root art WAS and epic fail! But not anymore!

Self Defense Paradigm #1

The first BAD Self Defense Paradigm is that somehow a "fight" proves your worth and that this is self defense. Nothing could be further from the truth! A "fight" is not a self defense situation! I have seen so many martial artist sucked into this idea! 

Self Defense Paradigm

Successful Self Defense Paradigm

Real Self Defense is a process of conflict resolution.  Be it someone upset with you and has mental issues and therefore wishes to do harm. Also, up to being in the wrong place, at the wrong time and you are straight out attacked for no reason. 

A bar fight is 2 or more MORONS. with over inflated egos, who wish to prove their worth. This is not proving anything but how pathetic you are! Perhaps stop drinking! The cemeteries and prisons are loaded with these clowns!

Self Defense Paradigm #2

Combat and self defense are not the same thing! This is a massive misconception today and a lot of what I see is simply BAD stuff.

It is fun to learn, and learning is ALWAYS a good thing! However it is a fail on the streets, unless you are interested in a prison sentence! 

But I hear the food in prison is good! [laughing]

There are some great combat systems to learn like Krav Maga and Systema. I have done some work in Systema myself and they have some great stuff!

But it is not street ready! It is military combat!

New Self Defense Paradigm

New Self Defense Paradigm

Do I really need to tell you everything that is wrong with this one? Both sides are unrealistic! Look at how the knife is being held! And the defense? Only if you want to bleed!

Do I think these systems are of value? For sure! I always encourage martial artists to expand their knowledge whenever possible. Are they a STREET self defense solutions? No they are not because they are COMBAT oriented! 

Self Defense is NOT combat! But there is some good things you can integrate into a self defense system. But they are not for the average person. 

Self Defense Paradigm #3

This is the most dangerous of all New Self Defense Paradigms! That is that there is any one system that can and will guarantee you success in self defense on the streets! That is simply a LIE! And a dangerous lie!

New Self Defense Paradigm

BAD Self Defense Paradigm

Yes this kind of garbage is being taught as street self defense! There is nothing wrong with learning it, but thinking it will work in an attack is a different thing!

This defender is putting his femoral artery at risk, that is DEATH!

Read this article on the 13 Misconception of Knife Attacks!

Referring to Self Defense Paradigm #2,  people die in hand to hand combat everyday! If these systems were so perfect there would be no casualties! 

But nothing is perfect! Therefore we need a New Self Defense Paradigm!

New Self Defense Paradigm

So what is the New Self Defense Paradigm? Lets take a look at a formula for increasing the odds of success in a real life and death situation.

New Self Defense Paradigm #1

The first thing that needs to be taught, considered and understood is prevention. The best, most successful self defense is one that never happens. When you are out know where you are!  Know the neighborhoods and the risks. 

Carry a cellphone in your pocket or purse to use it to call 911 or other emergency numbers. But you are NOT holding it in your hands and using it! Pay attention! Don't make it easy for someone to attack you! But the damn phone away!

Self Defense Kyusho and Knockouts

Self Defense needs to be taught properly!

New Self Defense Paradigm #2

Understand the law when it comes to where you live! In self defense you can only use reasonable force. That is enough force to end the attack and nothing more! Never assume anything! Know the facts. As an example here is a link to the Criminal Code of Canada for self defense.  You will find this online for your country very easy!

New Self Defense Paradigm #3

No matter what martial art you study. Learn and incorporate a system(s) that teaches escalation from low to high and how to handle each one! Also learn about stress training, real stress training and not that crap they used 20 years ago with the padded man.

There is a Psychology to Self Defense that must be understood!  You must know yourself and how to respond to an attack. And you must understand the attacker! Both from a psychological and physical aspect so you can do the most damage with the least amount of time involved!

The conflict must end FAST! The clock is not on your side!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips [Kyusho]

Self Defense Tips

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Today I want to give you the Top 5 Self Defense Tips with a Kyusho Jitsu flare to them. Now this is not today about techniques, but most of all being safe on today very unpredictable streets. 

Much of what is taught is unfortunately not very effective. It can be complicated to learn and some is just dangerous! But there are real solutions! 

So keep reading to discover them!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

These commonly taught techniques pictured here are not effective!

Here is the list now of the Top 5 self defense tips all based on common sense.

Self Defense Tips #1

Know you surroundings! I know this sounds like real common sense but you cannot image the number of people who have no clue! Now I live in a country with a VERY low violent crime rate. Currently, but that can change very quickly! Therefore be prepared always!

Self Defense Tips

Self Defense Tips

Here is a classic example of what NOT to do! It is only a purse, let it go and bring the police into the matter!

Always be safe!

Today you see people walking down the street, faces buried into their cell phone with no clue what is going on around them.  This gives the signal to ANY predator that says "ATTACK ME."

Put away the cell phone! Facebook, Twitter and Messenger are NOT emergencies! Don't make yourself a victim! I leave my cellphone in my pocket!

Self Defense Tips #2

Notice I did not say "leave your cellphone home?" A cellphone when used properly is the greatest self defense "tool" in the world! Why? No not so you can hit the attacker with it! But so when something is wrong you can call the POLICE!

Every cellphone has a GPS tracking device in it that can help the police local exactly where you are! These work better then you realize! 

Here is a listing of common emergency phone numbers world wide. But check your area for the correct number! Have the number on speed dial is best because during an emergency you may not be able to dial very well! Even if you are experienced in self defense do this anyways! 

Most of all safety first! Ego LAST!

Self Defense Tips #3

Seasoned self defense people and martial artist know this! However on the weekend I read a self defense article on WikiHow that was simply WRONG! 

Knife Attacks

Knife Attacks

It was about knife defense, which is hands down the most "dangerous" situation the average person will ever face! They told the readers to yell "HELP!"

Yeah NEVER well "HELP" unless there is a Police Officer within visual range!  Why? Because NO ONE will come! People today do NOT want to be involved and yelling help is rolling the dice!

Instead yell "FIRE!!!"

And the reason? People love to watch things burn! This will catch the attention of anyone in the area and human nature says they will come and see what is going on! Understanding the psychology of how people think is a wonderful thing!

Self Defense Tips #4

Find a BUSY place to flee to! Do not go down dark alleys and deserted streets to get away. Try to find a place with lots of people! The odds are this will discourage the attacker and make him move on! 

Self Defense Tips - No Alleys!

Self Defense Tips - No Alleys!

The situation does not get much worse than this! However it likely could have been prevented and there are ways out!

This will be covered in H.P.P.T Level Three 

Therefore this is why awareness of your surroundings is so important! Know where you are at all times! I talk constantly with my Kyusho Jitsu Students about the value of knowing where NORTH is. Make knowing you surrounds a part of everything you do! 

If you are in your car and think you may be followed do not go home! Drive once again somewhere well populated and use tip #2! Call the Police, always call the Police! It is there JOB!

Self Defense Tips #5

Get some self defense training! Now this is where I hear all the MMA guys going, "I am a trained fighter, I don't need this!" Yeah, no YES you DO!

Understanding Body Mechanics

Understanding Body Mechanics

Today most martial arts are sport oriented which is fine, but KNOW your limitations! Winning a battle in a ring, every at the high level is not the same thing! In a ring your opponent wants to WIN! On the street the attacker wants to KILL YOU!!

There is a BIG DIFFERENCE!

Now I hear many fighters talk about the guy they dropped on Friday night downtown. Yeah that is a FIGHT. When you have an argument with some guy who called your wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/significant other names and fisticuffs begin, that is a FIGHT.

This is 2 idiots who have giant egos who like to prove their worth. Have fun, that is NOT SELF DEFENSE! Enjoy the assault charges!

Now as for some serious self defense training I do have a solution for you! 

Real Self Defense Solutions

No matter if you are an experienced martial artist, with or with Kyusho Jitsu training. Or perhaps just someone reading this article who is looking to learn the basics of self defense? Then I have a solution for you!
