This question was posed to me via email a few weeks ago. I answered the lady directly and she must have been satisfied with the answer as I did not hear back. But what is the answer to this question?
It is 2 parts…
Obviously the amount of time and effort you put into the learning and practice of Kyusho is a determining factor in its effectiveness. You cannot just read as an example my Novice Kyusho Jitsu Workbook and say, “well I know this now” and expect any kind of result. You MUST training with the information.
How much time and effort do you put into your root art? The more time and effort you spend training period is going to be the deciding factor in how effectively you can incorporation and use Kyusho.
Kyusho Jitsu is NOT a quick fix for lack of training! This is one of the reason I spend so much effort recruiting NEW Certified Kyusho Jitsu Teachers. Yes it does spread the art! But the addition of Kyusho to the schools curriculum or as special programs helps to keep adult students motivated and training!
That is a WIN/WIN for everyone! The more martial art school that succeed, the better it is for all of us! Let’s face it the general public needs what we teach and the discipline we have to offer. The world is not getting calmer, it is getting much more violent!
So in a nutshell that is the answer. There is no answer, it all depends on you!
If you are not currently a Kyusho Jitsu student but would like more information take a look at our Kyusho Jitsu University Website. There is something for everyone there!
Have a great day!
