As I have said many many times Kyusho Jitsu takes some work. First you do need a foundation in a martial art or a self defense / combat system in order to benefit from the study. Without some training movements it is very difficult.
In our world today people love to “put the cart before the horse” and jump into very advanced stuff before they are read! Thus they end up frustrated and quit. That is a loss for us all! Kyusho Jitsu needs to be promoted and taught, but done the right way!
That requires “systems” to teach the correct information, in the correct order so the student can get the most out of the learning and experience.
That is what we do at Kyusho Jitsu University! Our courses are setup to get you started and to continue on the correct path as to obtain maximum results.

Last night while I was teaching my adult class in Brasov we did about a 30 minute segment on Kata Interpretation. Now I teach these interpretations differently than some people do because I have the students actually figure out themselves what is going on rather than me explaining it and having them memorize them.
Doing it this way facilitates programing the subconscious mind to be able to utilize the movement. Just telling them does not do it. However last night I wanted to give some examples for them to work on so I broke down a few movements in the ITF Pattern Toi Gye.
When I do this I love to watch the light-bulbs go off in people heads as they see for the first time the application of something they did not ever imagine. And all the breakdowns where basically kill shots.
No matter how you break down a Kata the results are supposed to devastating. There is no wasted motion at all. You can interpret them to be tame, but that was not the design.
And the breakdowns fit!
If you would like to discover more about the world of Kata Interpretation take a look at new video mini course I have coming out next month! Right now is the time to act before it is released. Follow the link below for all the details.
Last night I was relaxing a little after working on my new eBook which will be out shortly on doing Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts. There is a lot to this book because of the research that goes on during the writing to get the correct information from a medical standpoint as to how it all works. Pictures take some time also.
I was review some of my “old” knockout videos and found this one.
In this video I was discussing a video I had seen online. I had watched a video from a gentlemen, very talented man who has a great channel. However he decided he wished to start discussing pressure points with no real clue as to how they actually work. In class we went over it, and then corrected the pressure point information.
This is another reason why this eBook will be so important. If you don’t have all the information you will fail the majority of the time doing knockouts.
The get the most out of your pressure point study you NEED to have correct information. And a lot of the information online is either wrong or incomplete which won’t help you. Below are a few links to take a look at if you wish to learn more about Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts. Some is FREE too!
The more you study, the more you train, the better you get!
There is so much when it comes to Kyusho Jitsu to learn there are always gonna be mistakes made. Even after all these years I still makes lots of them. 12 meridians, 2 vessels and hundreds of points. Not to mention all the principles and laws.
You are gonna mess up!
Embrace it! Back a few weeks ago while teaching the seminar in Spain and doing Alarm Points I drew a BLANK on some of the points. This is normal and it gonna happen no matter what. I think this is the reason many people quit, they cannot accept making mistakes. But the truth is in life we fail more than we win. Failure is a big part of learning and success!

I have said it before and I will say it again, you will encounter no more dangerous weapon then a knife. Plus if you happen to run into someone skilled with it, then the problem gets worse.
There is an old story from the early 2000’s that happens to be true. An off duty police office walking in on a robbery with the assailant having a knife. The officer was in his late 30’s with lots of experience and knew better. But the moment got the better of him.
Now in the state this happened the police carry their service pistol at all times. For whatever reason he elected to deal with this man without drawing the gun. He did have hand to hand training, but the gun was a better option. He did win the altercation, but below is a downloadable file of picture of what he looked like at the ER. It is very graphic.
Now in my opinion the police are not well enough trained and this has to do with money, however this is the potential situation anyone can be looking at if they choice to defend against or are attacked by someone with a knife.
You may not have a choice.
This is the reason I am writing a new eBook on Kyusho Jitsu Knife defense. Over the course of my life I have had 2 altercations that involved knives and I came out OK. There are reason I did and those will be featured in this book!
Below is a link for more information and release dates on the very important eBook. And yes there is also a preorder for it so you have a chance to save!
Yesterday I was watching some video from Kyusho teacher Grand Master Steve Stewart. Even after all these years he blows my mind. It is all so easy and natural for him. Mastering the Pressure Point Art and Science of Kyusho Jitsu does take some time and effort. But if you are someone dedicated to you martial arts training, you can certainly do it too!
One of the big secrets to it all is making sure you keep good study habits. Taking notes, reading them over, continuing to pursue your education no matter how many years you have been training. I know after all these years I still have so much to learn!
There are also things you need to do while doing the physical training also. Many martial artist make a critical mistake. Before they begin their Kyusho training they train VERY hard in their traditional style, then immediately begin working Kyusho and things don’t go very well. Kyusho is best done when you are not tired and you MUST be well hydrated!
As you know when you workout intensely you body loses a lot of water, and therefor the nervous system, and thus the Chi system goes down to a lower level. Anytime I have done knockouts for demonstration be they neurological or no touch I am always drinking lots of water before hand!
Keep training everyone! I am always here to answer any questions you may have. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lets really spread the word and teaching of Kyusho from city to city and country to country!
Now first I am going categorically state, Kyusho Jitsu in NOT a martial art. Kyusho Jitsu is a system, or a science that is applied to any martial art to make it more effective.
That being done lets discuss some basics. What is a pressure points? This is a place in the body where a nerve ends, branches off like in a “Y” formation, or where nerves cross. It is not the nerve itself.
What is the size of a pressure point? A pressure points actual size is that of the head of a pen, however the area of activation is about the size of a loony, or silver dollar.
What kinds of point are there? Points come in 3 classification for attack. They are either “touch points” “rub points” or “hit points.” A touch point will not respond to a hit, however some points are of more than one type.
How long will a pressure point stay active? After stimulation a pressure point can stay active for up to 20 minutes.
How should you strike a point? A pressure point needs to be attacked at a 45 degree angle using 2-Way Action or complex motion.
Now if this sounds interesting we have a few options for you to learn more. The first is our FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course which you can subscribe too below.

Being able to defense yourself is believe it or not more mind than it is physical prowess or technique. Not everyone no matter how well trained is able to defend themselves in a real life situation.
Back when I was with my first instructor there was a woman in the school who was amazing to watch move. Her abilities were astounding! Power, speed and grace. But one night on the riverfront in downtown Windsor she was almost raped. She froze in fear. None of her training came to her aid. Luckily for her the Windsor Police were staking out the park and arrested the 2 men before anything really bad happened.
I have been doing specialized self defense workshops and courses for 30 years. I recall very well one group of women we taught back in the early 90’s. They were all Real Estate people who were concerned about going out at night. Everyone did very well. At the end of the course we brought in an Uki, padded him up really well and had him attack each of the women in different unrehearsed scenarios. One woman screamed, began to shake uncontrollably and cried for an hour. She had flashbacks of being attacked.
Another woman in the same group destroyed my Uki and actually hurt him through all the padding. She had been attacked once also.
It is not the martial art style and never has been. Yes the training is VERY important, but without the understanding of the REAL psychology of self defense, and not the Dr Phil crap either, there is no way to guarantee success, or even survival of the aftermath if you lose.
The physical is only maybe 10% of the picture.
So what is it then that causes success or failure? There is a part of the human brain that determines how we react or respond to every situation in life. It’s programming decides if you are successful in self defense or any other aspect of life. It is influenced and acts upon your habitual thoughts, including the ones you don’t know you think, as well as your self image, the real self image not the one some people pretend to be.
So once again I am going to put my fingers to the keyboard and write a NON Kyusho Jitsu book on the Psychology of Self Defense. How to reprogram yourself, and help those you teach to be successful in not just a self defense situation, but life in general.
Very soon I will release more information on this eBook, which for the first time I may have printed as well. Watch our book site from the link below. Once I have the information together it will be featured on the front page.
Have a great weekend and don’t miss out Canada Day Birthday Celebration!
When it comes to self defense you have to weed out what is real from what is propaganda, and there is a lot of propaganda. Back several years ago I saw back in Canada a segment of a news show with some ISIS training video in it released to the media.
What a joke. If this is how these clowns train their hand to hand fighters, well if the USA decides to put troupes on the ground it will be a short war. But the general public eats it up because it looks good.
The world of self defense is not just kicking and punching. You have to deal with the rush of hormones within your own body, adrenaline, which causes all sorts of issues like shaking, rapid breathing, loss of the concept of time, and thus timing, and also tunnel vision.
A No Touch Knockout requires tremendous focus. I just don’t see that happening in real life. Perhaps there are people who can control themselves to this extent, but I don’t know any personally.
Subconscious programming of movement is one thing, the control of the fight or light reflex. But I am not sure about subconscious programming of focus.
So then why do it at all?? Because learning to focus is ALWAYS a good thing! There could be situation where you would have the time and ability to calm down enough to perhaps have some effect. But certainly not in the heat of battle.
One thing, the ability learning no touch gave me was to be able to calm myself more quickly and negotiate better because of it.
No Touch knowledge has its benefits. Time will tell how far it can be taken!
