I watched a video the other day on YouTube, I will not bother to mention the channel, but it is hosted by a comedian who is a “retired” martial artist and former MMA guy. I rarely watch the channel, but this video on how pressure points, according to him and another “fighter” don’t work i had too see.
So why can these gentlemen, assuming they even tried, not make Kyusho work? For the same reason that many martial artist have an EPIC FAIL when it comes to pressure points. They do not understand 2 Way Action.
Yes it is that simple, but you have to understand that many of the traditionalist out there are not teachable! If their instructor did not talk about it, then it does not matter or apply! I think we call that “closed minded?” But that is the way it really is! I know about 20 years ago I was one of them!
The real masters of old understood this concept(2 way action), but really did not know who to put it into words that the average westerner could understand. Even those who learned Asian languages will still have issue because they think in English (or whichever language).
But the answer as to the fail is simple. Lack of understanding of what foundation of the art. Unless of course we are talking about those too lazy to train, but that is a different story! But they love to talk too!
Have a great day!
