Something I have always noticed with many, many martial artist, and masters. They become unteachable! This is a sad reality, but it is not just in our industry, but really it is everywhere.
I have prided myself in remaining “teachable.” That is why I have been so fortunate as to have so much shared with me by some great men and women, in all areas of life! I am very wise because I know that I don’t know very much on a grand scale!
Are you teachable? If yes, then you also realize that the martial art system or style you practice and/or teach is NOT complete. None of them are! One day at a seminar I met Leon Jay. The son of the late Professor Wally Jay. Now Professor Jay founded an art called Small Circle Jujitsu which is very effective! Leon asked me what style I taught and then added “you know it is not complete?” I told him that was why I was there. He spent 2 days teaching me so much, aside from the seminar stuff.
He said “you are so teachable.”
Leon Jay is also a Kyusho Master. Now if you are one of those who see that everything we do is always in need of progress then you may want to look at adding Kyusho Jitsu to your current system. The beauty is you don’t need to change your movement, just increase awareness of what is truly happening within it.
Every system of old has pressure point usage in it. But it is waiting to be awakened by the motivated student and teach.
