The answer to both questions is YES
Yes Kyusho Jitsu is REAL!!
YES I am an excellent Marketer!
Back in the 80’s and 90 one of the greatest marketing campaigns ever done in the martial arts was with the UFC and the Gracie’s. “99% of all fights go to the ground.” A genius statement, with zero factual basis.
I have never ended up on the ground and the only time I have seen anyone on the ground is when they are unconscious or hurt badly. Now I am not talking about 2 or 3 idiots who have had to much to drink, or who’s ego’s are bigger than their brains and take a argument to violence, I am referring to the real thing, LIFE and DEATH. I have no interest in anything else.
Martial artist train themselves for thousands upon thousands of hours in the mechanics of punching and kicking. Some will condition the body to absorb tremendous amounts of punishment, yet very few wish to actually spend the same amount of effort and time to understand the weakness of the opponent, which is what the study of kyusho jitsu is all about. Ending a attack as quickly as possible.
Kyusho Jitsu is part of a complete martial arts education and repertoire. No style alone is complete and no style is perfect. Martial arts study is about self education, not indoctrination. Bruce Lee said that 40 plus years ago and many of the men who idolize Bruce never understood or heard his words.
Pressure Points and/or Kyusho Jitsu is real, it works in real life and death situations, and is an important part of training. As you age, as injuries take their toll on your body, you will learn to appreciate these teaching more and more.
Have a great day!
