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!

Have a great day!

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

Kyusho Jitsu Head Points

​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!

Below are 2 links to the 2 main programs within this!

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!

My First Kyusho Knockout was an Accident

Shares

​My First Kyusho Knockout

Kyusho Knockout

Kyusho Knockout

Yes that is correct, my first Kyusho Knockout was a total accident! I was in Toronto attending an all day seminar by several presenters and I knocked out one of my students totally by accident! Here is what happened.

The presenter was the late Soke Ray Hayes of ​Whitby Ontario. He was a 10 Dan Black Belt in Kempo as was teaching a session on movement in the Octagon. This was actually my introduction to these concepts, which later became a cornerstone of my teachings! As I was practicing the routine he was showing I accidentally, but lightly hit my Uki on the side of the chin. He WAS OUT!

Soke Hayes say this and commented, "oh nice you hit ST-05, a pressure point." Well to say that was not a quantum leap weekend for me was an understatement! Not only did I come home with Octagon Theory, but also tasted the science of pressure point self defense!

Kyusho Knockouts

Pressure Point / Kyusho Knockouts work! At this point I had no exposure to the science of pressure point self defense and this was NOT a Kyusho Jitsu Seminar! I was HOOKED! This opened my eyes to many possibilities for training and self defense!

Also this was a one hit knockout, which I found really fascinating! There is a reason this is possible too! If you want to learn more about what I call "one hit knockouts" follow the link below and checkout my eBook on Understanding Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts.  

The best news is that the information in this eBook can easily be added to your current system of self defense! If you have any questions feel free to comment below.  Also please share this post with your friends on social media!

​Kyusho Blast from the Past

I was doing some searching yesterday on google and hit a Kyusho Blast from the Past! This is an OLD video from back in 2009 I believe of me talking about the Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course. This was the original, non certification course. I have to admit it sold much better than I expected it would!

I am sharing the video with for as a reminiscence of old times!

Updated Home Study Course

Back in 2017 I did a revamp of the old Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course. Some materials I kept, some I updated. But when we re-released the course we made it a FULL Kyusho Jitsu Novice Certification Course.

The idea behind was to held the martial art student who did not have access like I did to a physical teacher in the real world. This course enable them to learn and progress and optionally test for rank. Grading is included with the course.

The response to this course has been even better! If you would like to learn more about the Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Series follow the link below!

Why get a Kyusho Black Belt?

Shares

​Kyusho Black Belt

Kyusho Jitsu Black Belt

Kyusho Black Belt

Why get a Kyusho Black Belt? Over the years I have heard many people say they just want the knowledge and that the rank does not matter to them. I can appreciate this! In a way I think the same. However as I look back in my martial art career, all the arts I have studied to add to my root art, I have received my Black Belt 25 times.

Now this is not a "bragging point." There are many career martial artists can blow this out of the water! But it does have a meaning. Lets get into it!

Goal Seeking is our Nature

People are different from animals. We all have a survival and reproduction instinct. But humans have something else. We have a need to learn, to grow, to develop and be successful! Goal setting is in our nature, in our programming. Everyone does this, but some people more than others!

Achievements like getting a Black Belt fill this need to expand horizons. Success breeds more success! It builds confidence, and increases desire to keep going throughout life. One success really does lead to another! it all gets down to how we think! This is the reason we have a belt system for kids!

​Not Everyone Sets Goals

I had a long discussion one day in Ann Arbor Michigan with my business coach Keith Hafner. We talked about "street people" and why this happens to them.  People who live these horrible lives of poverty have one thing in common. The can only "think" a few hours into the future. Things like "how will I eat today?" They do not see anything else. They set goals, but these goals have no distance!

​The average person sees the future, but they tend to think month to month. They have long term goals, but they do not focus on them.

The successful person sets goals daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and long term. Plus it is the VICTORIES along the way like getting a Black Belt that keep them inspired and moving forward!  Success leaves clues, and this post is a BIG clue!

At the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance we are all about education. ​So how does someone without a physical instructor available? Well we have you covered! Plus this is the REAL DEAL! A Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course including everything you need to achieve a Black Belt and hang a certificate on your wall!
