New Self Defense Paradigm

New Self Defense Paradigm

New Self Defense Paradigm

I believe it is time for a New Self Defense Paradigm! As I have said on many different occasions what I see being taught as self defense is either pure trash, or antiquated and very out of touch with the world today.

Yes the student of self defense does have a "learning curse" that must be addressed. But if the system does not go beyond this, then it is a FAIL. And I speak from experience because from a self defense aspect what I learned in my root art WAS and epic fail! But not anymore!

Self Defense Paradigm #1

The first BAD Self Defense Paradigm is that somehow a "fight" proves your worth and that this is self defense. Nothing could be further from the truth! A "fight" is not a self defense situation! I have seen so many martial artist sucked into this idea! 

Self Defense Paradigm

Successful Self Defense Paradigm

Real Self Defense is a process of conflict resolution.  Be it someone upset with you and has mental issues and therefore wishes to do harm. Also, up to being in the wrong place, at the wrong time and you are straight out attacked for no reason. 

A bar fight is 2 or more MORONS. with over inflated egos, who wish to prove their worth. This is not proving anything but how pathetic you are! Perhaps stop drinking! The cemeteries and prisons are loaded with these clowns!

Self Defense Paradigm #2

Combat and self defense are not the same thing! This is a massive misconception today and a lot of what I see is simply BAD stuff.

It is fun to learn, and learning is ALWAYS a good thing! However it is a fail on the streets, unless you are interested in a prison sentence! 

But I hear the food in prison is good! [laughing]

There are some great combat systems to learn like Krav Maga and Systema. I have done some work in Systema myself and they have some great stuff!

But it is not street ready! It is military combat!

New Self Defense Paradigm

New Self Defense Paradigm

Do I really need to tell you everything that is wrong with this one? Both sides are unrealistic! Look at how the knife is being held! And the defense? Only if you want to bleed!

Do I think these systems are of value? For sure! I always encourage martial artists to expand their knowledge whenever possible. Are they a STREET self defense solutions? No they are not because they are COMBAT oriented! 

Self Defense is NOT combat! But there is some good things you can integrate into a self defense system. But they are not for the average person. 

Self Defense Paradigm #3

This is the most dangerous of all New Self Defense Paradigms! That is that there is any one system that can and will guarantee you success in self defense on the streets! That is simply a LIE! And a dangerous lie!

New Self Defense Paradigm

BAD Self Defense Paradigm

Yes this kind of garbage is being taught as street self defense! There is nothing wrong with learning it, but thinking it will work in an attack is a different thing!

This defender is putting his femoral artery at risk, that is DEATH!

Read this article on the 13 Misconception of Knife Attacks!

Referring to Self Defense Paradigm #2,  people die in hand to hand combat everyday! If these systems were so perfect there would be no casualties! 

But nothing is perfect! Therefore we need a New Self Defense Paradigm!

New Self Defense Paradigm

So what is the New Self Defense Paradigm? Lets take a look at a formula for increasing the odds of success in a real life and death situation.

New Self Defense Paradigm #1

The first thing that needs to be taught, considered and understood is prevention. The best, most successful self defense is one that never happens. When you are out know where you are!  Know the neighborhoods and the risks. 

Carry a cellphone in your pocket or purse to use it to call 911 or other emergency numbers. But you are NOT holding it in your hands and using it! Pay attention! Don't make it easy for someone to attack you! But the damn phone away!

Self Defense Kyusho and Knockouts

Self Defense needs to be taught properly!

New Self Defense Paradigm #2

Understand the law when it comes to where you live! In self defense you can only use reasonable force. That is enough force to end the attack and nothing more! Never assume anything! Know the facts. As an example here is a link to the Criminal Code of Canada for self defense.  You will find this online for your country very easy!

New Self Defense Paradigm #3

No matter what martial art you study. Learn and incorporate a system(s) that teaches escalation from low to high and how to handle each one! Also learn about stress training, real stress training and not that crap they used 20 years ago with the padded man.

There is a Psychology to Self Defense that must be understood!  You must know yourself and how to respond to an attack. And you must understand the attacker! Both from a psychological and physical aspect so you can do the most damage with the least amount of time involved!

The conflict must end FAST! The clock is not on your side!

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

So is there anything that can cover all the basics you need to know to build a really effect self defense system? Yes there is! 

At Kyusho Jitsu University I am offering a 3 Level Course called Humane Pressure Point Tactics. And don't let the word humane fool you! These courses cover everything from low escalation situations and how to prevent escalation, all the way up to the life and death weapons seen, multiple attacker scenarios!

This is SOLID realistic information that can help you, provided you do the work, greatly increase you odds of success in a bad situation!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips [Kyusho]

Self Defense Tips

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Today I want to give you the Top 5 Self Defense Tips with a Kyusho Jitsu flare to them. Now this is not today about techniques, but most of all being safe on today very unpredictable streets. 

Much of what is taught is unfortunately not very effective. It can be complicated to learn and some is just dangerous! But there are real solutions! 

So keep reading to discover them!

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

Top 5 Self Defense Tips

These commonly taught techniques pictured here are not effective!

Here is the list now of the Top 5 self defense tips all based on common sense.

Self Defense Tips #1

Know you surroundings! I know this sounds like real common sense but you cannot image the number of people who have no clue! Now I live in a country with a VERY low violent crime rate. Currently, but that can change very quickly! Therefore be prepared always!

Self Defense Tips

Self Defense Tips

Here is a classic example of what NOT to do! It is only a purse, let it go and bring the police into the matter!

Always be safe!

Today you see people walking down the street, faces buried into their cell phone with no clue what is going on around them.  This gives the signal to ANY predator that says "ATTACK ME."

Put away the cell phone! Facebook, Twitter and Messenger are NOT emergencies! Don't make yourself a victim! I leave my cellphone in my pocket!

Self Defense Tips #2

Notice I did not say "leave your cellphone home?" A cellphone when used properly is the greatest self defense "tool" in the world! Why? No not so you can hit the attacker with it! But so when something is wrong you can call the POLICE!

Every cellphone has a GPS tracking device in it that can help the police local exactly where you are! These work better then you realize! 

Here is a listing of common emergency phone numbers world wide. But check your area for the correct number! Have the number on speed dial is best because during an emergency you may not be able to dial very well! Even if you are experienced in self defense do this anyways! 

Most of all safety first! Ego LAST!

Self Defense Tips #3

Seasoned self defense people and martial artist know this! However on the weekend I read a self defense article on WikiHow that was simply WRONG! 

Knife Attacks

Knife Attacks

It was about knife defense, which is hands down the most "dangerous" situation the average person will ever face! They told the readers to yell "HELP!"

Yeah NEVER well "HELP" unless there is a Police Officer within visual range!  Why? Because NO ONE will come! People today do NOT want to be involved and yelling help is rolling the dice!

Instead yell "FIRE!!!"

And the reason? People love to watch things burn! This will catch the attention of anyone in the area and human nature says they will come and see what is going on! Understanding the psychology of how people think is a wonderful thing!

Self Defense Tips #4

Find a BUSY place to flee to! Do not go down dark alleys and deserted streets to get away. Try to find a place with lots of people! The odds are this will discourage the attacker and make him move on! 

Self Defense Tips - No Alleys!

Self Defense Tips - No Alleys!

The situation does not get much worse than this! However it likely could have been prevented and there are ways out!

This will be covered in H.P.P.T Level Three 

Therefore this is why awareness of your surroundings is so important! Know where you are at all times! I talk constantly with my Kyusho Jitsu Students about the value of knowing where NORTH is. Make knowing you surrounds a part of everything you do! 

If you are in your car and think you may be followed do not go home! Drive once again somewhere well populated and use tip #2! Call the Police, always call the Police! It is there JOB!

Self Defense Tips #5

Get some self defense training! Now this is where I hear all the MMA guys going, "I am a trained fighter, I don't need this!" Yeah, no YES you DO!

Understanding Body Mechanics

Understanding Body Mechanics

Today most martial arts are sport oriented which is fine, but KNOW your limitations! Winning a battle in a ring, every at the high level is not the same thing! In a ring your opponent wants to WIN! On the street the attacker wants to KILL YOU!!

There is a BIG DIFFERENCE!

Now I hear many fighters talk about the guy they dropped on Friday night downtown. Yeah that is a FIGHT. When you have an argument with some guy who called your wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/significant other names and fisticuffs begin, that is a FIGHT.

This is 2 idiots who have giant egos who like to prove their worth. Have fun, that is NOT SELF DEFENSE! Enjoy the assault charges!

Now as for some serious self defense training I do have a solution for you! 

Real Self Defense Solutions

No matter if you are an experienced martial artist, with or with Kyusho Jitsu training. Or perhaps just someone reading this article who is looking to learn the basics of self defense? Then I have a solution for you!

Humane Pressure Point Tactics!

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert

What is a Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert? That is really a good question, and the answer goes far deeper than most people will think! Today "self defense experts" are a dime a dozen! There are so many different "certification" programs out there, some really good and some total SHIT.  How do you tell the difference? How is a Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert different?

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert

Honestly I never use the term "Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert" because it really says nothing about anything. What am I? A Kyusho Jitsu master, yes. And I have a ton of self defense experience and knowledge.  Plus 34 years in the martial arts. All traceable!

But it is my ability as a teacher that will decide if I am successful teaching self defense to people. 

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert

Now I really have to think about this term. Because Kyusho Jitsu is a science, not a self defense system. It is the study of the human body and how to best "disrupt" the neurological system to increase the odds of self defense success.

Self Defense is Not Fighting

Self Defense is Not Fighting

It [Kyusho] does not tell you to "hit A, B and C" and then you will be safe! That is foolish! So what is a self defense expert? Really to me it is someone with a SOLID self defense training background. But someone who has also had experience on the STREET in an attack situation. But NOT someone who has had more than an handful of issues!

Why? Because when someone talks about all their battles, and all their victories on the streets, well I tend to think they live in a lie. 

So what exactly is a Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert?

  • Someone with a solid pressure point knowledge.
  • A person with experience on the street. Win or lose, it is all about learning.
  • That they continue to learn, grow and pursue knowledge in their field!

Is this not logical? 

Something else to watch our for!   BIG claims of YOUR success! There are so many of these guys bragging about "defeat any attacker with no experience." When you see that, it is about 99% sure it is a scam! Here is a real "heads up" article on the topic.

Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert

Kyusho Jitsu  Self Defense Expert

What is a Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert

Now I keep adding Kyusho in front of self defense expert because I teach Kyusho! However a real expert knows that no one wins a fight.  When someone attacks you it is about ending the threat FAST, and/or hopefully avoiding the situation entirely! 

But unless you are first mentally prepared no amount of training can help you! And even if you are physically successful you must also deal with the trauma afterwords, win or lose! There is a HUGE different between winning a world title in a tournament and having someone TRY TO KILL YOU! Now I can tell you something from experience here.

Self Defense is a serious thing

Self Defense is a life or death situation!

My first teacher was 7 years running North American Grand Champion in the TKD circuits.  Then one day he had a 9mm stuck in his face.  He disarmed the man, and the attacker fled. But he had nightmares for years afterwards.  Most likely he still does. 

Military men, who are prepared for combat, and that is not you, come back home with PTSD , a condition that can destroy their lives. Mental preparation is everything! 

Here is a link to something that may help you here. 

Physical Self Defense
The Psychology of Self Defense

The Psychology of Self Defense

When I refer to physical self defense I am always thinking about the movement including the science of pressure point self defense. But there are things about self defense you must know! 

Obviously there is situation awareness that needs to be understood and practiced! I have a great report on Personal Protection you can download here!

But the physical has its own "rules" for a lack of better term.  You need to understand escalation and how to deal with each level.  Let's look at this now.

  1. Before the attack. What is happening, can the situation be avoided? If not is there something I can do preemptively to end the threat before it turns from verbal to physical?
  2. The confrontation of a situation has turned to physical. A punch or grabs has happened and now everything turns to pure defense to end the threat and get out of dodge. 
  3. A weapon or other attackers come into play

These are the basic understandings of the Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert!

Next what you are training in or teaching needs to be simple. Complicated techniques do not work for the average person.  Once you master the simple, you can then explore other things. 

Effective Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Systems
Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Now if you come to the science of pressure point self defense from a solid and realistic self defense martial art or system you are likely OK. But today these systems are fewer and fewer. Yes there are a lot of "self defense" combat types systems. But most of what is taught today on the Dojo floor is oriented towards sport.

How about adding something simple, and effective? In walks Humane Pressure Point Tactics.  This is a specialized system, using pressure point knowledge, to help people to become more effective in their self defense skills and therefore on the streets.

This is a 3 Level Certification Course that will give you what you need to also teach the materials with the backing and support of the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance. It is based on the 3 rules you read about above! 

Who is H.P.P.T For?

H.P.P.T is for anyone interested in becoming safe on the streets, and proficient in self defense based on pressure points. It is also for someone who is willing to do the work, put in the effort and time to become a Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert!

Could you become one, a Kyusho Jitsu Self Defense Expert?

Kyusho Self Defense Techniques

Kyusho Self Defense Techniques

Kyusho Self Defense Techniques

Kyusho Self Defense Techniques

Many instructors of the science of pressure point self defense teach a lot of Kyusho Self Defense Techniques.  I have mostly been teaching the theory behind Kyusho Jitsu as apposed to Kyusho Self Defense Techniques. 

However my latest set of courses at Kyusho Jitsu University is different.  The reason I have not taught so many techniques is I did not see the need until recently.  When it comes to "real" usable self defense there are a lot of holes today in the martial arts world.  There are many out of touch instructors, therefore a real need exists!

The Typical Martial Arts System
Martial Arts Tournament

Martial Arts Tournament 

In today's world the typical martial art system is divided into 3 parts.  And the 3 parts do not tend to relate to each other. They are as follows.

  1. Foundation work such as Kata, strikes, kicks, etc
  2. Sport - Tournament sparring, ground fighting etc
  3. Self Defense 

The foundation work looks nothing like the skills taught to be a competitor, and competition and street defense have nothing to do with each other either.  Just the base mentality should give it away. Sport is a game, street is life and death.

No reasonably intelligent person would confuse or relate one to the other!

Kyusho Self Defense Techniques
What is kyusho Jitsu?

This WON'T WORK!

This is just a picture, but do you see what is wrong with this? Unless the attacker is severely hurt, in which case the attack is OVER, the defender will end up on his back or worse! 

This is unrealistic and BAD stuff! 

Since I see the need,  I have created a course, based on a certification course I took about 8 years ago called Humane Pressure Point Tactics.  This is a 3 level certification course designed to give the average person, and any martial artist a real grasp on exactly what self defense is. And how to handle different situations.

Don't let the word "humane" fool you! There is nothing "nice" about the Kyusho Self Defense Techniques in this course! However they are based on an understanding of "reasonable force," which is required by LAW for something to be considered as "self defense."

What is H.P.P.T About?
Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

The idea behind this is to present a well round course in pressure point self defense from an application based standpoint.  Violence has signs and these need to be seen, understood, and at time preemptively dealt with.

Self defense does not go to the ground and if it does you must get up! It is about survival not "winning." Believe me, you will never feel like a "winner!" 

The course breaks down into three elements. 

  1. Low escalation, or before the attack happens. How to defuse or preemptively deal with a disruptive person before the first blows come.
  2. Level Two begins where level one left off and deals with the situation after the first strike is attempted. 
  3. The third level deals with a situation(s) where a weapon has been introduced or more than one attacker is involved.

These courses as about real street survival.

Self Defense is NOT Combat

Today you also see a lot of "combat" types of systems out there. Sorry, self defense is NOT combat! And the big problem? If you cross the line in self defense you can end up begin viewed as the "attacker."  It happens all the time. The mentally of combat is different! 

Therefore you cannot approach self defense from a self righteous attitude!

And our course will be teaching real, usable techniques, Kyusho Self Defense Techniques that are not complicated, and therefore work!

And for the average person these Kyusho Self Defense Techniques can be learned and used right out of the box. Also for the martial art student they can easily be adapted to their current style or system. Therefore everyone can get something from these courses!

Kyusho Self Defense Techniques Sample

Below is a sample video. This is not a video from the H.P.P.T Level One course, but this is the type of examples I will cover.  The video is from a weekend seminar in did in 2011 with regards to how self defense is often traditionally taught, vs the idea of updating information and making it useful!

The first example is a punch and a BAD responsive from my root system. No one in real life punches this way! Instead we therefore turn it into a practical, teachable and doable, H.P.P.T learning experience. 

In this scenario the "disruptive" person pushes you and you respond with the opportunity to remove them from the scene. 

This just skims the surface of what this course is about! 

Getting Started

The Humane Pressure Point Tactics course, which will feature real usable Kyusho Self Defense Techniques, will officially launch Level One on June 15th 2018.  However I have already been releasing lessons to those who have preregistered.

Plus I have been offering an AMAZING deal for those who register for Level One before the launch date. You get the One Month Course of ONLY $29.97 plus a guarantee price for Level Two and Three of the same $29.97 each!

What are Kyusho Jitsu Meridians?

Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

What are Kyusho Jitsu Meridians? How do they work? Where do they travel? Once understood, the road to success in the science of pressure point self defense is then clearly laid out. 

Kyusho Jitsu Meridians are the same as acupuncture meridian of which I am giving a reference here. This is to the top ranking site for this knowledge. Interesting enough, and also no surprise the information at Wikipedia contains some errors. 

12 Standard Meridians
Kyusho Jitsu Meridian Theory

Kyusho Jitsu Meridian Theory

The meridians of the body are complicated. Things are not really as they appear to be. For the use of Kyusho Jitsu we focus on the 12 major meridians, and the 2 Vessels. There are others, and their paths also run deep,

Now stating 12 is also not accurate. This is 12 on each side of the body, so effectively 24 total we need to think about. The vessels are center-line therefore there are only 2.  Each Kyusho Jitsu Meridian has a polarity, either Yin or Yang and a direct relationship to an organ in the body.

Also each has a specific number of pressure points along it. As well as a relationship to one of the 5 elements of the body. When you take a look at this you can see a balance that they represent with relationship to health. 

Kyusho Jitsu Cycle of Destruction

Kyusho Jitsu Cycle of Destruction

Upper Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

The first we will look at is the Kyusho Jitsu Meridians of the Upper Extremities, or the arms if you prefer. There are 6 total, 3 of them being Yin and 3 being Yang. The representation of each is 2 metal and 4 fire elements. They are as follows:

  • Lung - Yin - Metal - 11 pressure points
  • Pericardium - Yin - Fire - 9 pressure points
  • Heart - Yin - Fire - 9 pressure pooints
  • Small Intestine - Yang - Fire - 19 pressure points
  • Triple Warmer - Yang - Fire - 23 pressure points
  • Large Intestine - Yang - Metal - 20 pressure points.
Lower Kyusho Jitsu Meridians

The next set which run into the legs are the Kyusho Jitsu Meridians of the lower extremities. They are as follows.

  • Stomach - Yang - Earth - 45 pressure points
  • Spleen - Yin - Earth - 21 pressure points
  • Gall Bladder - Yang - Wood - 44 pressure points
  • Live - Yin - Wood - 14 pressure points
  • Bladder - Yang - Water - 67 pressure points
  • Kidney - Yin - Water - 27 pressure ppoints

This is the basic breakdown of the meridians and points. You can view a complete list of Kyusho Jitsu Meridian Charts here

2 Vessels

The 2 vessels at the center-line of the body are very similar to the idea of the main electric current coming into you house. One Vessel, Conception is at the front of the body and is the primary source of all Yin energy to the body. 

The Conception Vessel

The Conception Vessel

There is no relationship to any element when it comes to a vessel, however each does have a specific number of pressure points. Governor is the primary source of Yang energy for the body. Therefore the balance. 

  • The Conception Vessel - 24 pressure points
  • The Governing Vessel (or governor) - 28 pressure points.
Governor Vessel

It does get complicated and there is a lot of study. This is just scratching the surface, but it is a good place to begin to learn!

One thing you do need is you are serious about the science of pressure point self defense is a good reference tool. Take a look at the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu Project here. There will be nothing else like it anywhere!

How Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts Work

Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts

Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts

Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts

How do Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts work?  There are many people who ask this question online daily.  I monitor the Google Search results and see this phrase non stop.  Many people have opinions, and it is just that "opinions."  But the ones who say it does not work have simply not done the work or the research.

To those people I have no comment, I am not trying to convince any disbeliever.  I am talking to those who wish to truly understand what the FACTS are.

The Nervous System

Have you ever hit your "funny bone?" It is not funny that is for sure! When this happens you have hit the "Ulnar Nerve." 

Triple Warmer Meridian

Triple Warmer Meridian

"In human anatomy, the ulnar nerve is a nerve that runs near the ulna bone. The ulnar collateral ligament of elbow joint is in relation with the ulnar nerve. The nerve is the largest unprotected nerve in the human body (meaning unprotected by muscle or bone), so injury is common. This nerve is directly connected to the little finger, and the adjacent half of the ring finger, innervating the palmar aspect of these fingers, including both front and back of the tips, perhaps as far back as the fingernail beds"

Your can read this entire article from Wikipedia HERE

But, remember what the "naysayers" remark. "Nerve strikes don't work!" Do you see how myopic some people are?

As I said I care less about these people opinions. What I dislike is that because they are "type a" personalities they WRONGLY influence people.  Investigate and think for yourself. Don't listen to these people. They just have no clue. But they "need" to be right.

Years ago when I work in assembly at Chrysler I was walking back to my job. As I passed a container I hit the back of my hand on one corner. The pain was unbearable! I lost use of the arm from the elbow to the fingertips. Even my shoulder ached! 

I hit a nerve, the one at TW-3. It took about 30 minutes to recover.  But remember as these "naysayers" will tell, nerve strikes don't work! YEAH RIGHT! THEY WORK GREAT!

Everything in Kyusho Jitsu, the science is pressure point self defense is linked directly to nerve strikes.  The very definition of a pressure point relates to a nerve.  But there is one VERY important thing to add to all this information! Attacking pressure points, or nerves is NOT ABOUT LIGHT TOUCH. I do not know why that keeps coming up! 

On the street you HIT HARD, but correctly! Light touch is so your training partner does not get injured!

ALL Knockouts are Neurological
Lose the Ego

To learn YOU MUST lost the EGO!

Every knockout, including Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts are neurological. You need to understand that your entire existence is neurologically based.  Even sleep and death are neurological events. 

Here are the base 3 types of knockouts. The second is Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts.

1)CONCUSSION

Concussions are caused by blunt trauma to the head resulting in bruising or damage to one or more areas of the brain. This happens as the brain collides with the inside of the skull.  

A concussion can be caused by heavy impact to the skull such as a martial arts strike, a fall, car accident, etc. However trauma does not always cause unconsciousness, but when it does it is a neurological event. Therefore these are very dangerous and can result in death. 

2) NEUROLOGICAL 

A neurological knockout is caused by a short circuit, overload, or imbalance in the central nervous system. [involving both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.

Therefore this can be done using Kyusho Jitsu techniques

And these may also be caused by extreme stress, emotions, shock, or extreme trauma to any area of the body. [A broken bone or crushed limb for example]. Neurological knockouts also occur due to excessive use of drugs or alcohol. 

3) CARDIO/RESPIRATORY

This type of knockout is caused by limiting the oxygen supply to the brain. Therefore this can be caused by choking or strangulation involving the air supply, the flow of blood or both. These can also be caused by impact to veins or arteries. Which cause a disruption in the flow of blood,  possibly dislodging plaque from the arterial walls causing clots.  

This is part of the Dim Mak system of training.

Why POWER is not the ANSWER

There are many martial artists out there who believe in the idea of "punch or kick him hard in the head." There are so many issues with this one I cannot list them all! First the kind of power these people are talking about comes from anger. When you are angry you lose control of your motor skills. 

You can miss very easy!

Plus you have no specific target in mind. Going for "impact" or in other words a concussion may not yield the results you are looking for! It takes time for the brain to swell and cause the "neurological" event of unconsciousness or a knockout.  I have had many concussions in my life and ONLY ONE caused me to lose consciousness and that was the first one. 

So rather than focus on that one time power hit why would you not strike at the "occipital nerve" located at GB-20, or the "vagus nerve" branch at ST-05? These strikes, done correctly WILL cause  Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts.

Plus you are less likely to have "legal" issues as a result of your "fight" or "self defense" due to excess force or "overkill." 

This is one of the many reasons we have a Humane Pressure Point Tactics course at Kyusho Jitsu University. Check it out!

Are Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts hard to learn?

The answer is NO they are not. But you have to do the study! This involves learning how these nerves work, how to properly activate them and then tying this back to your root art or self defense system. 

I have many different eBooks and videos to help you. But you must overcome the inertia of human nature and do the work. I know that many of the "Understanding Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts" eBooks people have purchased have not been read! Humane nature is to be lazy! This is why so many FAIL in life. 

So I am going to make two suggestions to get you started on the road to really understanding Kyusho Jitsu Knockouts! The first is a FREE Course. This is a 3 day video course done by email.  This will give you a GREAT start!  Below is a form you can fill out. Just enter your name and email.

Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

Shares

Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

The Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle is an advanced principle in the science of pressure point self defense. It is also one that many Kyusho students do not spend anywhere near enough time understanding. 

Which is the reason why many have issues getting Kyusho to work as well as its potential is! The Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle covers more than just Kyusho Jitsu. It is essentially based on the idea of energy flows in the body during a full day period or 24 hours. Here is one reference to the term Diurnal Cycle.

The idea in Kyusho is that each organ on the body has a specific "period" in the 24 hour cycle in which it is most susceptible to attack. This is the same cycle as in Chinese Medicine, except used for destructive, rather than healing purposes.

Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

The Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle breaks down as follows.

  • 3:00 am - 5:00 am - Lung (Yin)
  • 5:00 am - 7:00 am - Large Intestine (Yang)
  • 7:00 am - 9:00 am - Stomach (Yang)
  • 9:00 am - 11:00 am - Spleen (Yin)
  • 11:00 am - 1:00 pm - Heart (Yin)
  • 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm - Small Intestine (Yang)
  • 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm - Bladder (Yang)
  • 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm - Kidney (Yin)
  • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm - Pericardium (Yin)
  • 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm - Triple Warmer (Yang)
  • 11:00 pm - 1:00 am - Gall Bladder (Yang)
  • 1:00 am - 3:00 am - Liver (Yin)
Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

During the cycle time for the organ it is essentally rebooting from an energy standpoint. Thus making it more susceptible to attack. In Kyusho Jitsu we do not concern ourselves so much with attacking at the correct time of day.

That is somewhat premeditated and falls more into the Theories of Dim Mak rather then Kyusho Jitsu.  But more importantly in the science of pressure point self defense the Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle shows the flow of energy in the human body.

Therefore it connects directly with the principle of Attack Along the Meridian. So energy flows from Lung to Large Intestine. This gives you a map of places to strike.

It is also tied to Chi Development and the Major Microcosmic Orbit. See how everything ties together?

Yin - Yang Pairs

The next thing to realize as you are looking at the Kyusho 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle is that it come in Yin-Yang pairs.  One of the most difficult and complex of the principles of Kyusho it the Yin-Yang Theories. However they tie directly into the 24 Hour Cycle. So it is well worth the extra reading!

Understanding Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Shares

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Understanding the Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory is not for the faint at heart.  It is far more complex than anyone realizes. I have been contemplating this theory for a very, very long time. But first, before we get deep into the Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory let's get some history.

Origins of Yin - Yang

The origins of Yin and Yang go back to about 500 BC with the founding of a philosophy we called Taoism [Daoism]. The father of Taoism is considered to be Lao-Tzu.  There are also heavy ties to Confucianism as well.

Now I have linked back to an article on Wikipedia, because, well why not. But even the headed of the article is wrong. Because it is NOT Yin and Yang. It is simple Yin Yang [however I separate it with a "-" usually]

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

The symbol is most often time viewed as opposites.  In fact many people will teach it like this. However, while not wrong, it does not represent the true meaning. 

It is looked at like a collection of opposites, like the following examples.

  • Good / Evil
  • Male / female
  • Right / left
  • Positive / negative

But again this is VERY superficial and so really not accurate.  The symbol represents the illusion of "duality" that we live in, within this reality we call life. What does this mean? That one cannot exist without the other. PERIOD

Therefore duality is an illusion.

You cannot have good without evil. Positive without negative and male without female. No matter what political agenda says otherwise.  They are inseparable!

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Contrary to what people like to think opposites do not attract. Why is that? Because they are inseparable to begin with! As an example if you wipe out all the men on the planet, the human race will soon become extinct along with it. And no science will stop this! The same for female! One cannot exist without the other. 

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Like attracts like, and then turns into the same whole once again.  So now lets look at this and the science of pressure point self defense Kyusho Jitsu.

So in self defense there is a particular way in which we need to look at the Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory, and that is by "order & chaos."

Order obviously is peace, and chaos obviously is violence.  That is the experience of the reality we live in and therefore it will never change. It is how nature functions, so it will always remain with us. 

Today we are in a time of chaos, OK, better "approaching" chaos due to the proliferation of "extreme" political and religious ideological views. You can see this in the Yin - Yang symbol also!  But it will, over time swing back to more order than chaos.  It always done!

But my guess is not for a while! 

Where does Kyusho Lie?

So where does Kyusho Jitsu lie on the Yin-Yang symbol? The same place that your life should lie. One the "S" curve between the 2 sides of the whole.  One foot in order and the other in chaos. In other words, in BALANCE

This is where self defense must lie to be successful, and for life to have real meaning also. This is the place of NOT being affected or pulled into either extreme.  The middle ground.

When you are here, in the middle you are not sucked into the conflict, you do not take it personally. You respond, not react.

It is only an experience you are having.  Now a word of suggestion here too. Do not over think this!  Don't look at it as some Karmic life lesson. It just is life!

It is a whole, not separate

Next we need to look at the attacker as a whole. Not separate parts. Being that the Yin-Yang applies to everything,  When you "attack" one part of the body, the whole is affected. Often times fighters do not realize this.  That is why there is so much "head hunting" in boxing.  When a properly executed strike to leg point SP-11 will cause a knockout. 

How does Yin-Yang Apply?
Yin & Yang in Self Defense

Yin & Yang in Self Defense

As Bruce Lee said, "be water my friend."  When they attack, you defend, when they advance you contract.  You first complete the Yin-Yang, then move to the 3rd stage and take control, ending the conflict. 

Honestly most people will not get this. They will state that it is more irrelevant theory. And that is OK. Most people today are not ready for this.  You will know them when you meet them. They are the ones not listening, but waiting only to talk.

The Yin-Yang of Attack
Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

As you might know, or have guessed the body is constructed of Yin-Yang.  We have 12 meridians in the body. 6 of them Yin and 6 of them yang. Each element has an Yin-Yang pair. Each organ, and area of the body is either Yin or Yang. But as in the symbol, this is a predominance, not an absolute! 

Here is an article specifically on using the Kyusho Jitsu Principle of Yin and Yang in self defense.  But I will elaborate more now. 

OK I can ONLY go so deep into this. But here is a beginning breakdown of this powerful theory and principle. When someone attacks you they are in a predominance of YANG state. Therefore you must be YIN.  You help them to complete the cycle, being Yin before they become Yin. 

What you will be next depends on them. If they remain YANG, let's say they missed as an example with the strike, then your next move/strike will be a YIN STRIKE.  Like attracts like and so to have an devastating effect you remain this way.

Now if the attacker is hurt during his initial movements then he or she will become YIN, which means you become YANG.  Follow?

Don't worry if you don't! But once you understand this FULLY it is also the "KEY" to conflict resolution also! 

Confused? Don't be!
Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory

Believe it or not this is a Novice Kyusho Jitsu Principle. However it is also a cornerstone principle that holds up the study as part of the foundation. This is in my teaching a intermediate to advanced look at Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory.

But I can give you a more detailed and hopefully an easier to understand explanation.  

Follow the link below and learn about the 10 Principles of Kyusho Jitsu Video Series that I have. There is one that goes into great details on the application of the Kyusho Yin-Yang Theory.

OK so each video in the series sells for $25! But I am going to give you a great opportunity to get ALL 10 Videos, including the Yin and Yang Principle for ONLY $47!

Becoming a Kyusho Jitsu Teacher

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Teacher

Kyusho Jitsu Teacher

Kyusho Jitsu Teacher

Why would you want to become a Kyusho Jitsu Teacher with the KJWA [Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance]? Let's put all the cards on the table? 

What do you think?

Other Organizations

I know for a fact that many of the other organization that promote creating Kyusho Jitsu Teacher make you jump through hoops for them.  This is politics and I hate politics! Some will not allow you to even "like" someone else's Facebook page!

Seriously? What is that?

You must also pay annual fees to the organization, have them come to teach expensive seminars to YOUR people. And then give up percentages of income and grading fees!

The Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is NOT like any of the above!

Our Organization
Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance

Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance

In our alliance the "Kyusho Jitsu Teacher" keeps the income he or she makes teaching classes and seminars. He or she also keeps the grading fees they charge the students. There is a "reasonable cost" associated with us mailing our REAL certificates for the students, however again these are to cover costs, not make a profit.

There are no annual membership fees! And you can be a member of other organizations of you choose! You can have me in for a seminar, but it is not MANDATORY! Plus the price is GREAT!

Win/Win or No Deal

The Kyusho Jitsu Teacher in the KJWA has a lot of control over what they do. There are minimum standards that must be met for promotion and grading. However the Kyusho Jitsu Teacher can teach more if they wish too.

As a Kyusho Jitsu Teacher you have opportunity for profit sharing of any of our products sold. As well as full support from me personally to help you become successful as a Kyusho Jitsu Teacher!

Our Teachers in Spain

Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance Spain

Plus the barrier to entry has been lowered so you can get started without a HUGE investment!​

Level One Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification

As I stated I have lowered the barrier for entry cost wise for someone wishing to become a Kyusho Jitsu Teacher.  Right now you can start, get your Black Belt in Kyusho Jitsu and certify as a teach for $97!

Sound crazy? Too good to be true? Well it is not. There is a reason I am doing this!

The regular price for this certification is $997! And it is worth that! But in today's ODD economies people need a "kick start" to get them going. 

Think about this. You buy the course, you certify and then follow the suggested guidelines to teach classes. Now when I teach classes live I have a 3 hour monthly class for $75 each class.

But let's suppose you have 4 students, and ONLY charge $25 per class? You made the investment back in the 1st month! 

Do you see the potential? Why are you waiting?

Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points

Shares

Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points

Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points

Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points

What are Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points? How do they work, and where do they fit into the study of the science of pressure point self defense?

First there are 3 different types of Alarm Points.  These are very important healing points in Chinese Medicine that have been reverse engineered for Kyusho Jitsu. The types are as follows.

  1. Alarm Points
  2. Associated Alarm Points
  3. Special Alarm Points

These are all very different and each have a different purpose and effect on the body. 

Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points

First we will look at Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points, which are the FRONT Alarm Points in the body.

There is an Alarm Point for each organ on the body. These pressure points have a special and direct relationship with the organ they represent/govern. Attacking an Alarm Point can in theory affect the "health" of the organ. Especially if there are health issues for the person in question.

I have seen on several occasions when LU-01 [Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Point for Lung] is struck correctly that breathing issues develop rather quickly. Yin organs and meridians seem to be more susceptible to this than their Yang counterparts. 

However the effect on the meridians is what we are look for more so than organ affect. Alarm Point strikes tend to weaken the body quickly making them very useful in obtaining and knockout quickly. Each Alarm Points has a different angle and direction for activation. And they have what is almost an exponential effect depending on the point. 

Associated Alarm Points
Associated Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points

Associated Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points

Next we have Associated Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points. These are located on the back, on the BLADDER meridian on the right side of the body ONLY.  These points are far more dangerous, and also harder to reach. 

Associated Alarm Points have a direct relationship to the neurological aspect of the organ in question.  A proper strike can shut down the nervous system to the organ and cause failure.  These pressure points while on the Bladder Meridian are marked by their location on the spinal column. 

Special Alarm Points
Spleen Meridian

Spleen Meridian & SP-21

Special Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points are very different in function. Each has a specific purpose, not related to an organ. As an example PC-06 which is a Special Alarm Point causes a weakness in the chest area. Therefore making the area most susceptible to strikes. But I am just scratching the surface here. 

When are they taught?

Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points are an untold principle of Kyusho Jitsu. In my eBook the 15 Principles Plus One of Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points are the "plus one."

The front of the body Alarm Points are typically taught after 1st Dan Black Belt once all the first 5 principles are well understood.  Associated Alarm Points come at 3rd Dan Black Belt once a decent grasp of the front points are understood. 

Special Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points typically are master level however I tend to teach them when I think the study is ready. 

How important are Alarm Points? Pretty much everything I do is based off these now. It takes time and work to really get a solid grasp on them! 

Learn More!

If you are serious about the science of pressure point self defense than Alarm Points are an extremely important learn! These are obviously covered in detail in our Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Courses, but also elsewhere! 

First I have 2 different Video Course in which I cover the basics of Alarm Points. You can find these below.

Next and I believe to be the best option is an eBook I released a few months back called the Kyusho Jitsu Master Series. This is an eBook video combination on several different high level principles including Kyusho Jitsu Alarm Points. Below is a link to learn more!
