The martial arts world is an interesting place. There are literally thousands of styles and even more opinions on what works and what does not work. Some of what is said is true, some is not. Like anything else in life right?
So what makes Kyusho Jitsu revolutionary? For one it has been the most strongly apposed system I have seen in the arts in my 30 plus years. When something is strongly apposed it usually is because their is truth to it. The human nature of people is not to seek truth but rather to be right in their beliefs! And martial artists are the best at needing to be “right” about what they know.
Now I do not engage the “haters” because I will never change their minds anyways, and it is their right to disagree. They are similar to the “students” I will encounter, be it in Kyusho or my Dojo who want everything for FREE. Those people are rarely ever successful because they have no stake in their education. Someone with a real interest will gladly sacrifice for their learning, those are the true students! So again why is Kyusho revolutionary?
Because it makes the true martial arts student look at his art very differently. Begin to see what is really in the art form, what the real potentials are for self defense not just the DOGMA taught by those who came before us. Now I am not disrespecting the masters of old, I believe this is what they wanted for us. Self discovery, not just repetition of movement without real understanding!
Bruce Lee spoke of all this, many agreed and then returned to the DOGMA of old. Today there are many people who are “Bruce Lee Haters” who have no clue what they are talking about.
Now is Kyusho for you? It really depends on a few things.
- Are you hungry for knowledge or do you know everything?
- Are you still a student? Still teachable?
- Will you actually do the work. Today people want an instant answer for everything.
I am still learning and I am loving it! Kyusho changed everything i have learned about my root art and make if better, made it effective! If you would like to learn more, join our Free Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course!
