Excuse me! But I think you are cheating!

Karate Kick

Yes I will confess, sometimes I do cheat 🙂

But that comes from years and years of study! You need to know what you are doing, in order to take a short cut! Kyusho Jitsu has a large learning curve, and this is the main reason so many martial artists will ridicule it!

What are the 3 steps of truth?

  1. First it is laughed at!
  2. Next it is ridiculed and sometimes violently apposed
  3. Then it is accepted as self evident truth

Kyusho in the next few years will become a self evident truth in the martial arts world. Do you want to be on the ground floor of this? Then you must do the study now! After some years of work, you too will be able to cheat it all, and get even better results from what you are doing!

The martial artists who claim Kyusho does not work on the streets, are the ones who were to lazy, or not smart enough to really learn the process. And that is truth about EVERYTHING we do in life!

Are You Interested in learning Kyusho Jitsu??

Meridian System Description Chart Male Body

The question of the day? Are you interested in learning the pressure point art we call Kyusho Jitsu? I know that when I left my first teacher I had not even heard of pressure points, but when I saw some of what can happen when you know them, my interest really peaked!

One of the barriers to learning Kyusho, and there are 2 primary ones are as follows.

  1. No access to a real pressure point / Kyusho Jitsu Teacher
  2. No money to pay for learning pressure points / Kyusho Jitsu

#1 – I am currently selling, and creating different learning / certification products and courses, plus offering unheard of support for these products to eliminate the first problem!

#2- I have created a FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course to help give you a real foundation so that you can learn and apply the techniques and principles of Kyusho effectively in your own art! And it REALLY IS FREE!

Important Pressure Points – Which are Which?


When it comes to self defense, there are certain pressure points that are more important then others. There are some in fact that really don’t work at all!

One very interesting point on the body is PC-6. This is a personal favorite of mine since my root art of Hapkido is a grappling style (locks, throws etc).

Now i do get into a lot of different point in our FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course, these are in the later lessons, but learning to attack or at times even just touch these points can give an amazing result!

Now if you have ever been in a finger lock done by someone who truly understands how to do it, it is excruciating! If you press on PC-6 with the other hand the pain easily TRIPLES! For some people it only requires a touch!

So, now the “nay sayers” will go, well you are pushing on the tendon. NOPE because if you do these elsewhere in the arm, it does not work!

Now if you are interested in learning more about specific points and their self defense application, plus doing knockout in SD situations you may wish to checkout my new book!

You can Pre-order it if you wish! Follow the link below to learn more!

Making Pressure Points Work! Self Defense is a Mind Game

Mind Games of Self Defense
Mind Games of Self Defense

Have you ever watched professional boxing (sorry I don’t watch MMA) and seen how at the beginning of the fight they will stare at each other trying to intimidate the other fighter?

Self Defense is a mind game, just like sport fighting is. No matter how great the condition or training of a fighter is, if he has self doubt, he or she will lose.

So how does this in any way relate to Kyusho Jitsu? The meridian called Triple Warmer of Triple Heater.  As some of you will know this meridian is involved in the regulation of body temperature in the 3 regions of the body.

But that is NOT why we are interested in it.

It is one of the most active meridians in the body because it is also tied to the endocrine systems. The endocrine system controls the hormones released in your body, thus is tied to EMOTIONS.

In novice kyusho when I began we were taught that any strike to any meridian would activate Triple Warmer bilaterally on the body. This is true because you cannot be hit and not have an emotional reaction to it! Actually you are having an emotional reaction right now to reading this, no matter how small that may be!

Changing the emotions of an attacker can lead to victory, this can be done both physically and verbally. In sport it is called being taken off your game! Now this takes presence of mind and confidence, but that is why we are training right?

Now that is all I am going to say here, because I really want you in my free mini course? Understanding in details how triple warmer works, and how this makes other parts of the body more vulnerable is what this study is all about!

Self Defense is about being in control of the situation, control leads to victory. This is not me talking out of my hat either, this is from experience.

I hope you will join us on your FREE Kyusho jitsu Mini Course. There is nothing you are required to buy. It is just free.

The Size of a Pressure Point – Kyusho Jitsu Study


The other day I read a comment from someone who said you cannot use pressure points in a real fight or street defense.  His excuse was “they are too small.” Good excuse! Failures are so good at excuses! I love it!


What is the actual size of a pressure point? The actual size is that of approximately the head of a pen, but that size is irrelevant.

The area of activation is what matters, and this is what matters is the size of a loonie, or silver dollar in the USA.  There are over 350 points on the body, plus another 350 extraordinary points. Consider the body now cover with 350 plus silver dollars, and you can’t hit those?

If you can’t hit those, you need to train more or take up knitting!

Now it does require what the old timers called “Hitting correctly.” What a concept!!!!! Hahahahahaha.

Now we call it correct angle and direct! What is the correct angle? Hmmmmmmm, I could tell you here, I could also tell you the direction in this post too! And I was going to!

But hey, join the FREE Mini Course, you WILL find out there, and a lot more too!

Have a great day!

Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt Certification Course

Kyusho jitsu Black Belt
Kyusho jitsu Black Belt

I have been doing Kyusho Jitsu Study Groups at my dojo in Windsor Ontario Canada for the last 11 years I believe it is. Each year I accept 10-12 people to learn the Novice Kyusho Jitsu Program. After that the majority continue on in the advanced and master level groups. It has been a great addition to our school!

Back in 2007 I created a DVD course called the Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course. I still cannot believe how well that one sold! Several hundred, and I put very little effort into promoting it! But it was only for information purposes, not advancement and certification.

Recently I put together the first of many levels of Black Belt Certification Courses. I had to get my mind around all of what is involved in doing a distance training, and the amount of personal support the student would need. One of the most important aspects is the Skype support given to the student to answer questions and check progress,

My in dojo course for my students is $60 per month for 12 months, Someone from another school or dojo who joins in pays $75 per month. At the end of the 12 month course there is an exam and the fee is $300 per student. This is exactly what I paid in 2002, so by today’s standard this is a steal and the students know it!

So when you consider the idea I am charging right now $497 for the entire package as distance learn, including the Skype sessions and exam this is a STEAL! As I am writing this I think I must be crazy!

Very shortly the course for 2nd Dan Black Belt will be available and I know it will be a BIG hit like this 1st Dan Course has been! The number of students has been overwhelming so I have added some support staff to help me keep up!

The Kyusho Jitsu World is an exciting place, with so much to learn! If you would like to know more about this awesome course just hit the link below!

Don’t forget our FREE mini course either! It is a REAL course and will definitely get you started on the journey!

Pressure Point Study – Do Your Research!


I strongly suggest getting a copy of the book Gray’s Anatomy to help you with your study of pressure points / kyusho jitsu. This classic medical text will help you to associate the why and how of how things work!

One of the most controversial videos I ever had online was my doing a knockout on SP-11 on the leg. All the “experts” came out and said “this is fake” “that is impossible” etc, etc. Now for those people in this category, which I refer to as the “Dumbass Closet Intellectual” category I would expect nothing else. But for the student who is going to ask “how is this possible.” The above book with help immensely!

So how was this KO possible? Easy!

The Uki had grabbed me with 2 hands on my wrist. I took him out of my / his center, which cause the brain to compensate and try to recenter the arms to maintain control. Then I quick did a front kick, not much power to SP-11. Strong enough to move the leg, but not enough to break anything. The Uki passed out. Why?

The nerve at this point is designed to protect not only the bone, the femur, but also the femoral artery. If this bone breaks it can rupture the artery resulting in death. How did I learn this? From a EMS person who has had many patients with broken femurs pass out during transport for this very reason! This is medical fact not fiction! This is naturally an over simplification of the event. He had much more details for me. But this is all we need for our purposes.

Does this guarantee a KO by kicking SP-11. No it does not! I set this up well! But, because of where SP-11 is located, a HARD front kick can break the femur and get your pass out as well. But lets be honest, with a broken femur the fight is over with or without the person going unconscious.

To advance in Kyusho Jitsu you must do the work. There are no short cuts!

And if you have not yet joined our FREE Mini Course, you can do so below or wait for a nag screen to come up! Have a great weekend!
