Cycle of Destruction

Cycle of Destruction

The Cycle of Destruction is a cornerstone principle in the science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu. It comes from the basics of Chinese Medicine and is several thousand years old. ​

​This system is part of the balance of the body and exists in a complete group known as Wu Xing. Therefore it is complete and always coupled with the Cycle of Creation, the cycle of certain high gravity planets, seasons and several other things.

For us in Kyusho Jitsu we focus on the destructive part in order to help to defend oneself in an attack.  For our purposes the cycle breaks down as follows.

  • Fire melts Metal
  • Metal chops Wood
  • Wood penetrates Earth
  • Earth dams Water
  • Water quenches Fire

Then the information is used within strikes to certain areas of the body for a predictable result.

Kyusho Jitsu References

Finding detailed information on the science of pressure points can be difficult! The information above is from an ongoing project for the martial artists and Kyusho Jitsu practitioners in particular. It is called the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu.  The information in this project will be specific to Kyusho and its application, not to acupuncture or other medical applications.

​Therefore if you would like to learn more about this ongoing and expanding project follow the link below! There will be nothing like it anywhere on the internet!

​The Art of Self Defense

Art of Self Defense

​Art of Self Defense

What is meant by the Art of Self Defense? This is a term that refers to martial arts training, learning and practicing an "art form" that can also be used in self defense. However today this has lost much of its meaning. Therefore becoming a big issue.

The best defense is not a good offense! That is a sport term, and does not apply to the street! There is an old saying "it is not what you do not know that is a problem, it is the things you think you know that are not true." These are wise words! In a real street attack you can NOT stand your ground and battle it out! That can very quickly get you killed. And I don't care WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE, it is just not true! Many times as the attacker encounters difficulty a knife comes out that you do not see, and it is FINISHED. The idea of battling it out it just your ego talking. Save that for a ring.

Be Safe FIRST!

The most important thing in any attack is first to identify the problem, then to most to a save position so you can do one of two things. These are:

  1. Flee if possible. There is NO glory in a battle!
  2. Attack if required and END the conflict IMMEDIATELY!

Those are your only 2 logical options. Beyond this it is a police matter.  As for the first option there is an ancient method of movement in the art of self defense. It is a natural movement study and VERY effective! I know I have used it! I will link below more information on this for you.

The next step is to end the conflict by attacking the neurological and obtaining an knockout. The guy, or girl won't revert to a knife, or use one if they are unconscious! And all of this information fits into your current art form without big changes! Just new options!

Here are 2 great options for you to look at!

Encyclopedia Of Kyusho Jitsu

Today I have an update for you on the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu. As I said back last fall this is a HUGE project, one that will continue long after the official launch with the mobile apps comes! But today I have some news!

Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu Beta Testing

We have begun to upload content to the database, and test out the website and the links.  This is only the initial process, and not what the final product will look like on the web or mobile. But this structure needs to be in place as this is the building block stage.

If you would like to check this out you are welcome to do so! As I have said this is the very early stages. Right now it is only web based. When we begin testing the app functions that will be restricted to those who have preordered the project.

There is not much up yet, as I spent most of the day setting up the website, but it will expand as the weekend and coming days go by.

Follow this link below and have a look!

​Neurological Knockout Secrets

Neurological Knockout Secrets

Neurological Knockout Secrets

Are there Neurological Knockout Secrets? The answer is no, there is only information that you do not yet know! So lets talk about this a little today. 

There are no Secrets

It is not what you know that matters, it is what you don't know! When you don't know something there is no shame in it. Not knowing presents great opportunities for improvement. But the "norm" today is to ridicule the things that we don't understand. This paradigm needs to change.  I have been involved in the science of pressure point self defense for 16 plus years now, and I am still learning!

Neurological Pressure Points Knockouts are just that. There is nothing mysterious about it. It is just biology. If you overload the nervous system the brain will shut down and reboot. There are many different ways to do this and this is what the study of Kyusho Jitsu is all about. 

Does it work? Yes it does! But like i have said 100 times you have to do the work! It is not instant. But nothing really ever is! Below I am giving you a short video of a knockout at the pressure point ST-5 (Stomach 5).  This is very pure Kyusho as it is being done as part of an interpretation of an ITF Taekwondo Kata, Dan Gun.

How to Learn More

Does this peak your curiosity? There are 2 great ways in which you can learn more! The first is I offer a FREE Neurological Pressure Point Knockout Mini Course. This is a 3 day course via video. The second is a 10 Video Kyusho Knockout Mini Course, and this one is ONLY $7.97! You cannot go wrong with that price! Check one or both out from below!

If you have any questions please comment below! Also share this and our other content on social media! This helps us spread the teaching of the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu!

Attack Using Yin & Yang

​Attack Using Yin & Yang

Attack Using Yin & Yang

​Attack Using Yin & Yang

One of the 5 Novice Kyusho Jitsu Principles Attack Using Yin & Yang is very effective! However it does require some work to fully understand! One of the basic ideas behind this is to respond to an attack with the "opposite" of what the attacker is doing. But it is not really as simple as that!

Here is a excerpt from my book called the 15 Principles Plus One of Kyusho Jitsu.

Yin & Yang

"The Yin/Yang symbol is one of the oldest in the world, and one of the most misunderstood. People look at it, and then dissect it into opposites, which it is not, it is a “whole.” The name of the chapter is not really correct. It is not Yin and Yang, but Yin/Yang. 

This principle is DEEP and one that can stand on its own. It represents completeness within incompleteness. As well as incompleteness within completeness. But it has directly relationships to every principle! So let’s begin with the principle and look at the body. You can divide the body up into various segments. The front of the body is YIN, and the back of the body is YANG. The top half is YIN, the bottom half is YANG etc. We have Yin organs and meridians, and Yang organs and meridians. But NONE are completely one or the other. Just as light leads to darkness,
darkness leads to light.

This principle also depends on correct body mechanics to be effective. As an example, in many martial art system which are consider to be “hard” styles the punch is king. However, this will not always yield the best results. A target like the head which is “hard” is best served with a soft weapon like a palm hand, while a soft target like the body, is best served with a harder weapon like the fist. ​Which makes conditioning of the hand totally unnecessary as you learn to use the correct tool, for the correct purpose."

​So if you would like to learn more about this principle I have a something that can really help you! Right now for a limited time you can grab a copy of our Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course for an amazing price! This is a FULL Kyusho Jitsu Certification Course, all downloadable content that sells for $797.00! ​​But right now you can grab ir for ONLY $67!!

​Yes that is right ONLY $67!

​This is a $730 savings! Don't miss out! If you have any questions please feel free to comment below! Also consider sharing this and other posts on your social media account to help spread the teachings of pressure point self defense.

​Have a great day!

Kyusho and Self Defense Responsibility

Kyusho and Self Defense Responsibility

​Kyusho and Self Defense Responsibility

Kyusho and Self Defense Responsibility

The truth is Kyusho and Self Defense Responsibility go hand in hand. But in some ways it has become the elephant in the room, so we need to talk about it! Today in the martial art world sensationalism has taken over.  The brutality of the MMA/UFC world is front and center. Egos fly and trash talk is encouraged to help promote the events.

But it all causes a reflection on the arts in general.

We worked a long time to promote the martial arts as something peaceful, something to aid in building character, confidence and to fight as a last resort. Today that is kind of gone. So what can be done to correct the ever tarnishing image of the martial arts? As practitioners we must understand "reasonable force."

Reasonable Force

First realize the public does not understand anything about our training or us. People will ask me immediately, "did you win a lot?" Or automatically assume I was one of these cage type fighters. So then what happens if we are attacked on the street? The public view becomes excessive force immediately! That can also lead to serious legal issues in court as we must then "PROVE" we only defended ourselves and used reasonable force. Public opinion unfortunately matters!

Plus with all the video and surveillance going on we must ​​consider it even more!

Why Pressure Points are Important

This leads to why the science of pressure point self defense becomes to important. It will allow you to end a threat with the correct force, and quickly.  Plus much of what happens is concealed and not seen by the videos like sitting on a guy and beating him unconscious. That happens more often then you realize, and a claim of self defense goes with it! This damages the industry and brings the right to self defense in question.

Therefore learning Kyusho becomes a must! You can begin FREE with our Kyusho Jitsu Video Mini Course. This is a one month course, with a lesson every 3 days. Fill out the form below and join today!

Kyusho Jitsu Head Points

​Kyusho Jitsu Head Points

Pressure Points of the Head

​Kyusho Jitsu Head Points

Lets spend a few minutes today and talk about Kyusho Jitsu Head Points. Also known as pressure points of the head. In self defense it is often the most desirable to target the head. The head will naturally give a good result since it does house the brain. I know what you are thinking! For some people that is questionable! But lets take a look at the best place to strike!

Depending on the result you are looking for some points work better then others. It also naturally depends on the situation and what is the most directly available. Here is a look at the primary ones for a knockout.

  1. ST-05
  2. GB-20
  3. TW-23

These 3 points are often the primary targets. But did you know the following points can also result in a knockout?

  1. TW-17 - However this is a dangerous point
  2. LI-20
  3. GB 13,14,15. Also known as the Gall Bladder Triangle

Now I am really only talking about a handful of points here. But this will get you started! There are also some great points on the neck and throat area. But they are not typically grouped as "head points."

​Kyusho Jitsu Head Points

If you would like to discover more about pressure points of the head I have a really cool set of videos for you! They are part of an advanced principles series and are a total steal right now!

Get the entire collection of 5 videos for 
ONLY $9.97!

Why Train in Kyusho Jitsu?

Shares

​Why Train in Kyusho Jitsu

Why Train in Kyusho Jitsu

Why Train in Kyusho Jitsu

So why train in Kyusho Jitsu? No one does anything unless there is a benefit for them in doing so. This is human nature. Let's take a look at the answer.

First Kyusho Jitsu is not a full martial art. It is a system that enhances the martial art you are taking making the self defense aspects much more effective.  Plus of course it is an intellectual study which is a great bonus!

Why is Kyusho important?

  1. Makes up for size difference! This is the way martial arts is supposed to be! They used to say size does not matter. Kyusho makes this true!
  2. Aging, the old body clock! When we are young we think we are invincible! Today martial arts training is very physical fitness oriented and that is great! But, it cannot be maintained throughout life. Injuries and aging play a huge role. Kyusho Jitsu is the equalizer!
  3. Expands the understanding of your training! Kyusho Jitsu gives you the opportunity to get a deep understanding of the movements in your system, without having to change them!

Distance Training

One of the big problems with learning Kyusho Jitsu is getting exposure to a teacher. However since that is such a challenge we have worked very hard to create downloadable course so people can learn, progress and certify in Kyusho Jitsu.

Kyusho Home Study Course

This is the perfect course for martial artists who wishes to develop a solid working foundation in the science of pressure point self defense. This cover everything I teach in the first year of training in my Dojo at a fraction of the cost!

​Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Courses

This is for the martial arts teacher/school owner who would like to add this knowledge to their current programs. It is a great way to supplement your schools income, as well as keeping adult students motivated!
