Do you know what this diagram / picture means? It is NOT black and white like it may appear to be.
This is one of the topic that we discuss in great detail in the course to 2nd Dan Black and beyond, and I also believe it is included in the Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Workbook, but it is in the Master Kyusho Jitsu Workbook for sure. It was a long time ago I wrote those.
What does this mean? There is a way to temporarily change the predominant element of the hand when striking to get a better result.
And it works! I have used it many times personally to get a quick knockout when I have not had time for a decent setup. There is also a way to combine ALL the elements together which is devastating!
But I am not going to talk about it here, but you have 2 choices if you wish to learn it!
As you know I want to give our members the best possible benefits and experience as members of the Kyusho jitsu World Alliance. With that in mind I created an affiliate program which will allow members to sell many of our products at Kyusho Jitsu World and receive an very generous commission for doing so! The commission on our products will be a whopping 70% of the sale. Now I do realize this may appeal more to school owners, however this can become an excellent second revenue for anyone else interested.
To do this I have partnered up with Clickbank, which is a very large online retailer who specialize in affiliate programs. Today online sales are out doing many retail outlets as people’s trust in the systems has grown. I first opened my account at ClickBank in 2007 and did pretty decent with it. I was busy with my dojo, but was looking for multiple income streams. We ended up getting so busy by 2009 that I stopped doing the online stuff. But I have reactivated the account and have begun to list our products that qualify.
So what are the benefits?
70% commission on all our listed products
You can list and sell your own stuff as well. I will be creating a database over time and listing on it members products other may wish to sell for you.
Build a solid second income stream to help fight against bad economic times
The first step in doing this is to join KJWA at the link below. One you are a member you will receive information on joining our AFFILIATE PROGRAM. Now, this is important! Joining the program does NOT obligate you to participate, it just will provide you with all the information you need to do so! This type of program is NOT for everyone and it does require some work. But I personally think it is perfect for the martial artist because we UNDERSTAND hard work!
Have you ever attending at Kyusho Jitsu Seminar? Myself the number is simply to high to count. I have also had the privilege of teaching at several as well.
One of my favorites was the CMATC in London Ontario that was hosted yearly by Grand Master Steve Stewart. Now the face of this event is far different then years ago as it is now every 2 years and is more Kenpo oriented then before. However it is still awesome.
I have had the privilege to attend with some of the best Kyusho people in the world, and no matter how much my own rank goes up, how many years I study I know there is always more to learn.
There have been times when the presenters are not so great, mostly because they want to show you how good they are. But for the most part these men and women are interested in teaching you and helping you.
So when you get a chance, if finances work. Definitely go!
Now I have an event coming up in Brasov Romania in July 2017. This will be primarily a Kyusho event held over the weekend. It is called the RMATC or Romanian Martial Arts Training Camp. Below is a link to the Facebook event for more information.
The video I am sharing with you if from my schools Black Belt Extravaganza in 2012. This is part of the workshop sessions we have the day after the grading.
This is my oldest son Curt. He began his martial arts training in 1986 at the age of 4 1/2. It is all he has done all his. No hockey or other sports. Just martial arts.
He studied with Grand Master Steve Stewart as I did and attended the rank of 4th Dan Black Belt under that system. Which is Master level. Here he is working with a student, Philip Welch. Philip has about 12 years in Aikido and about 14 years with us. He has a pain threshold that is awe inspiring.
Watch what correct application of Kyusho can do to pain levels.
When I created the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance (KJWA) I did it to spread the knowledge of Kyusho Jitsu to every corner of the world possible.
So far we have been doing pretty well, and the KJWA is only a few months old!
The first method I have used to spread the word is the FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course, which has about 400 members plus in it. Next was the Alliance, then certification programs to create excellent quality Black Belts, and Certified teachers of our system. I must say I am thrilled with the results so far!
All of our courses are distance learning. This is possible because we are all martial artists and know how to move within our style. The JKWA Teacher Certification’s and Black Belt Courses are all curriculum based and require written and video examinations.
This is the real thing!
This past weekend I had a KJWA member write his exams and submit his video. He has been studying Kyusho for a while now, and has attended many different seminars over the years. My congratulations to Sven Hock of Germany!
Here is a link to the KJWA Certified Teachers Page.
Now if you are interested in becoming a Certified Kyusho Jitsu Teacher or Black Belt, you can read more about how to do this at the links below.
Back during the spring I started the Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course, made it free as an introduction to what we are doing here at Kyusho Jitsu World. To date we have around 400 active members in this course. That is awesome!
Back a few months ago I did a Facebook ads for the Course. It did pretty good getting people to sign up. Many of the leads were weak because lets face it, Facebook is mostly junk. But there was one guy who left a comment, while true it showed how stupid he is.
He said and I am paraphrasing. “He is selling something, you can get all this for free on the internet, just google it.” The first statement? Yes I am selling something, we ALL are! Everything in this world is for profit. Medical, education, religion, any job, anywhere, there is an exchange of currency. My guess is perhaps this person is a self entitled welfare bum????
And it is true, the amount of information you can find on the internet is unbelievable! All of my stuff is online, I know it has been pirated, so his statement is correct. But honestly, how many of you will research, organize, research more, weed out the false information, and educate yourself totally by being self motivated?
Some of you will, but 99% will not do it. So much information that no one reads, all at your fingertips!
That is why I have created these programs, done all the research for you and organized everything to make it easy to follow, learn and apply.
Sure there are other things I could do. I do teach martial arts and kyusho in the real world. Been doing it a long time. I worked for 20 years on the assembly line at Chrysler. But this is my PASSION. That is why I do it.
Education is a service industry, and that is why we support all the products we sell. I am teacher and my job is to make sure the student succeeds. Not just sell him some books and videos with a good luck pat on the back.
This is the real deal. The place to learn about pressure points / kyusho jitsu, apply it, teach it and excel in it.
Check out our website from the link below for all the Kyusho produces we currently offer.
I am not a politically correct person. I don’t not believe in it at all. I believe it is one of the reason we have so many issues in the world, but I digress.
Free sparring has nothing to do with being attacked in the streets. It is part of the sport aspects of martial arts and instructor who say it is NOT are putting their students at risk.
I began my martial arts career in a TKD / Hapkido mix. Hapkido for defense, and TKD for sport. My teacher was one of the best TKD fighters of his era having beat men like Herb Perez. But as I trained I wondered how the ring and street could mix at all.
That is because they don’t! It is like playing baseball with a hockey stick.
In 1992 during the Christmas season I got a very rude awakening. I walked into a street situation of a very large man, and I do not mean FAT, he was a monster, who was harassing and grabbing a young woman. I walked toward the man and got his attention from the young lady so she could run. Then I realized what I was dealing with. This guy was nuts. I was standing on ice and snow, and all my real skills besides a few punches was kicking. I was screwed and I knew it.
Now I was faster then he was and got to my car before he did. He beat on the windows trying to break it to get to me. I realized that day that sport and the real world do not mix.
What you see in a ring is SPORT and not STREET. No matter how good the fighter is, he will have issues in an attack. An attack is not a street fight either! That is 2 guys deciding to beat on each other. Different world and mentality. If he wins it is not because of his MMA skills, but the person he is inside.
Self defense is a different mentality, and a different set of skills. Trying to exchange blows will get you killed, and so will going to the ground. Street defense is very different from street fighting, and all of it is nothing like combat.
Now my purpose with this article is not to get you to come and join my dojo which is all about street defence, it is to present to you what is the equalizer in all this, pressure point usage.
Back in about 2008 one of my Black Belts enlisted in the Canadian Military and ended up in Afghanistan. Now the Canadian presence there is not what people think it is. He told me up his return about how different hand to hand combat was in real life compared to being attacked on the street. You are facing someone skilled who wants to kill you, not just someone who needs money for drugs or thinks you were with his girlfriend and perhaps wants you in a hospital or coffin.
But he did tell me that his Pressure Point knowledge did matter in combat and he was very happy he took so much time to learn properly. He said is saved his life.
If you want to really round off your martial arts study Kyusho Jitsu is the best addition you will make. Below is a link to some great ebooks to get you started.
Dim Mak, one of those mysterious words in the martial arts. There has been a lot of mystery and wonder over the years of the infamous “death touch.’ Is it real? Or just folklore?
I would like to say I have a solid answer for that question. Years ago I did a lot of research on the work of the late Earl Montague, but he was also a very controversial man.
I spent many, many years thinking about the possibility, researching and working out theories. But can they ever really be tested?
No, not unless you are willing to kill someone to be sure.
In 2014 I began to compile the theories I have, without testing them to the extreme of costing someone their health or worse yet their life. And I did come up with some answers.
Things I think maybe the secrets to the death touch.
Right now I am in the process of a new eBook /workbook on Humane Kyusho Jitsu, which is a polar opposite of Dim Mak. However once that that work is done I will assemble my notes on Dim Mak, and my theories of it, and release it to Kyusho Jitsu World!
If you are interested in this eBook, which I am guessing will be out around the 1st of March stayed tuned to this blog, or become a member of our Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course because that is where regular notices will be posted
