Is Kyusho Jitsu for Real or are you just a Good Marketer?

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!


Pressure Points Self Defense, How to do it, NOT just What to Do.

With GM Steve Stewart 2006

There is a ton of information floating around on the internet for pressure points. Now, a lot of it is wrong, but that is because there are no barriers to having a website and posting. You can even do it FREE.

There are many many Kyusho and pressure point sites on the internet who give away information, some have fees which is GREAT, but often time you are only told “what to do” but not “how to do it.”

What to do, for most people is not enough.

I had the best Kyusho teacher in the business. Grand Master Steve Stewart teaches the HOW, not just the WHAT.  Me showing you how to do something is meaningless unless you can do it too!

Now I have a FREE Mini Course and it is pretty good! I also offer support for it, I am happy to answer questions, but only to a certain point. Now in my Kyusho Jitsu University Membership or the other paid courses it is much different. The FOCUS is always on HOW and that requires a lot of my time, energy and focus.

Now I think everyone should be check out the FREE course, and continue in it even when you decide to attend Kyusho Jitsu University.  But for real education and ability to use it, the best choice is membership!

Right now you can TEST DRIVE our Kyusho Jitsu University Gold Membership for One Month totally free, with NO Obligation for continue and no credit card needed to sign up.

Check out all the details right here! Don’t wait as this offer will be away without notice!



Kyusho Jitsu and Body Typing

The pressure point art and science we call Kyusho Jitsu is based on Chinese Medicine, some even on Taoist Medicine. There are many different theories in all these forms, however we subscribe and use the 5 Element Theory of Fire, Earth, Wood, Metal and Water.

In these theories the body is made up of all the elements, with one being a primary element.  Now it is beyond the scope of a simply blog post to explain all this, it would take a lot of writing and time, however if you wonder about as an example “fire”, well your body produces heat right?

Now for our purposes and this is NOT beginners stuff, each person has a predominate element.  It is tied to body structure, and personality. I am a “fire” element person, my son Curt is a “metal” element person, and Scott a “wood” element person. With time and practice body typing become easy. There are challenges to do it with today’s condition of people overeating and distorting their appearance that way.

I can recall sitting in a restaurant with Steve Stewart many years ago after a video session and having fun calling out the elements of people in the room. “Get a look at the gall bladder on that guy!” (Wood).

How does this translate to self defense? After time you begin to think in body types. You just do it all the time! So the attacker is going to get typed because he is there! An example I am a fire person, so attack me with water as often as possible!

Now there more too it then that, but it is advanced information. I touch on it  in my advanced or master level eBook, but I don’t spend the time it deserves on it.

Pressure Points – Kyusho is NOT about Light Touch

In the 80’s and 90’s the pressure point systems were very badly miss sold. There was a general opinion among many martial artists that the entire idea was crap because it was promoted as being able to knockout someone out with just a light touch. Today opinion it is getting better, but we are not there yet!

The martial arts master of old were not very good at public relations. So often times the things they taught ended up misrepresented by their own students. I like telling the truth about the way things work.

In a real life situation, when I hit a point, the purpose is destruction, not a light tough.

Sadly many, many people in our world cannot reason. Maybe it is too much TV or something in the food. When you teach pressure points, or do pressure point demonstrations you MUST hit lightly or all kinds of problems will occur. You CANNOT hurt your partner!

Back a few years ago I was at a Kyusho seminar and one of the presenters, a brilliant martial arts grand master was teaching and using one of his students for an Uki. Now I don’t know why this happened, but this GM was going pretty hard on the guy. Finally in this set he hits the Uki and TW-12 and the shoulder comes apart.

The poor Uki after traveling across the world to attend this session was badly hurt, likely needed shoulder surgery and was sidelined the rest of the weekend.  The plane home must have been hell!

You can’t run a school or be successful teaching if you hospitalize all your members.

Yet some people don’t believe pressure points work because we demonstrate light touch and light touch won’t work on the street. Really? No kidding…. My head hurts when people actually believe they need to point that out!  We don’t practice with live knives in class either! That does not mean using rubber knives you cannot teach you to be effective!

In this Mondays Vidcast I am going to talk of one of my real life incidents. Kyusho Jitsu World Vidcast for Monday March 20th is the episode coming.

Have a great day!

Do You Ever Worry Your Training Will Be Enough if you are Attacked on the Streets?

Do You Ever Worry Your Training Will Be Enough if you are Attacked on the Streets?

Pressure Points are the Equalizer!

Have you ever been worried walking down the street about just how effective your training may be if it was needed? Now I am not talking about a fight, something you can walk away from. I am talking about the guy who wants to rob you, or worse yet KILL YOU.

Perhaps you will be with a loved one when someone attacks and you know you have to deal with this quickly as to protect them? Let’s face it, the odds are it is going to happen! I have had it happen 2 times in my life!

If you are like me, and honest with yourself you know this is a concern. What usually happens is we train harder. But lets face it, life gets in the way of always being in “great” shape! Plus injuries also affect us. Not mention “age”

But there is a great equalizer! That is adding “pressure point” study to our existing training. As your progress in Kyusho things like age, size, stamina and injury count less and less! I have been teaching pressure points / kyusho jitsu for about 15 years to police and military people and they all agree. This knowledge is what made the difference for them!

So today I am offer a GREAT opportunity to get our Kyusho Jitsu Basics Knockout Mini Course for an incredible price!

Something for Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Students

It has been a very busy few days. I truly have a lot on my plate. More and more martial artists are now discovering just what the benefits are in learning the pressure point art and science of Kyusho Jitsu.

Over the years I did a lot of video work. Then around 2012 I stopped doing it. I was so burned out with my schedule, running a large school. Traveling to do seminars, plus trying to have a social life. So I kinda stepped back and only dealt with a handful of Kyusho Students.

But today I am back in the swing, better then ever. There are many new products, and many more on the horizon. This “semi” retirement is kinda nice! Gives me much more time for my passion for pressure points.

Well that brings me to the point. I have something for anyone with some Kyusho experience to check out. Dedicated beginners too, but advanced practitioners can use this information quicker.

That is all I am really going to say, so click below!



There is no such thing as a FREE Lunch, until NOW

Actually the title of this post is from one of the greatest headlines every used in an ad by a Chicago restaurant. They were giving away FREE lunches. You can imagine the numbers!

The other day a guy took my survey from the FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course and complained that there are links to “old” YouTube videos.  Hahahahahahaha. I laughed so hard!

Do you want pretty? Or do you want information? You can have both, but you will PAY for it severely! Ever purchase a Tony Robbins Course? I just purchased a Dan Kennedy Copy Course for $`1500 USD! It is pretty and awesome!

Steve Stewart does some very fine production work, but again your really do pay for it! He gives away NOTHING for free! Believe me! I think he is smarter than me!

I do things in a cost effective way, so I can get real information out for martial artists who are serious about learning and teaching this stuff. It is the information you need, not a great few of my mug!

So now here is something that is ALMOST FREE. A video Mini Course on how to do pressure point / kyusho jitsu knockouts.

Almost free! The price of a small coffee from Starbucks!

Check it out here!

You Gotta LOVE Pressure Point Knockouts!

Admit it, you love to see a really great kyusho jitsu / pressure point knockout! I have been doing them for about 15 years now, and have had literally dozens of Uki, some students, some volunteers to do them with.

The more I did the better I got at it!

Now there are some martial artist who think this is a waste of time and that “theory” is useless. Well they have a big misunderstand or perhaps a learning and development issue. All theories need to be applies in order to work. I can’t help someone who watches a video and then does not train the theories until they become application.

Knowledge is not power, applied knowledge is power! Can you do this on the street? YES but you HIT HARD, not soft like in a classroom environment.

Take a look at this knockout from a few years back.

Now if you are someone who would like to learn more about this, doing pressure point, neurological knockouts I have a GREAT OFFER for you!

A few years back I had an online short course for doing knockouts, later I offered the videos from it on DVD. And today I sell this Pressure Point Knockout Mini Course for about $47 on average.

ONLY $2.97

New eBook Coming for June 2017! No Touch Knockout Theory

You have been asking, so I am going to do it! I will soon be finished the Humane Kyusho Jitsu eBook and then I will begin the process of writing an eBook to explain my theories and a few others on doing no touch knockouts.

Now this is one of the most, if not the most controversial subject in martial arts! But since you want it, I am going to do it!

Now I have a pretty good idea of what I will be putting in this book. It will be a how to type book to help you learn to do this in our own dojo. It will also feature the vast number of things that can go wrong, and the potential danger associated with this, especially for people who are sensitive to these type of energy transfers.

  • Price? No clue
  • Release date? Too soon to say
  • Pre Release sale? Likely not

But stay tuned, I will update on the product regularly!

Have a great week!




The Old Ways, the Ways of New and Kyusho Jitsu

Applying focus and power (Martial arts)

In the old days of martial arts training, well let just say they were brutal! My instructor was a hard nose, powerful man who took no prisoners. Today I have the damaged joints and pains of getting old to prove it. Not to mention the scars.

But times have changed, just like they always do! Pressure Point knowledge was always in the arts, and it is still there laying underneath the movements that you train in. The old timers just simply call it “hitting correctly.” The problem is they can do it from that example, but 99% of their students cannot. The knowledge is not passed on!

People today learn differently, they have different family and job obligations then we did or have now. So telling someone to “hit correctly” is a injustice. We can no longer be instructors and be successful at being school owners, we must now be teachers!

My GM from the early days used to brag that 1 out of 1000 would make Black Belt. To him that was prideful. He was so harsh that 999 dropped out. He was not a success but a total failure. Some will disagree, he would if he was still alive, but the value of the arts come in doing it for a long time. Spreading the arts is something we love to do, and I believe a responsibility. Dropout are a black mark against us.

Retaining students is a hard job. But i am one of the best at it! I have had adults with me for 20 years now, and not just one or two. Kids grow up and stay which is wonderful!

Why is that?

Because I work very hard, on the floor operations, to make sure that students stay motivated and NEVER STOP LEARNING!And Black Belts are the ones who need the most motivation!

If you are a school owner, or someone who is thinking about opening a school, you need to retain students. Kyusho Jitsu as an additional training not only helps assure retention, but can also add some extra cash flow to your dojo. Schools don’t fail because of the style taught, they fail because of cash flow from lost students, missed enrollments and bad planning.

Now quite often owner will turn to Krav Mega to give students something new to work with.  This is chosen often just because the instructor likes it. But how many schools in your city are teaching it? In mine there are several!

But I am the ONLY pressure points guy!

Have a great day!
