Back during the spring I started the Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course, made it free as an introduction to what we are doing here at Kyusho Jitsu World. To date we have around 400 active members in this course. That is awesome!
Back a few months ago I did a Facebook ads for the Course. It did pretty good getting people to sign up. Many of the leads were weak because lets face it, Facebook is mostly junk. But there was one guy who left a comment, while true it showed how stupid he is.
He said and I am paraphrasing. “He is selling something, you can get all this for free on the internet, just google it.” The first statement? Yes I am selling something, we ALL are! Everything in this world is for profit. Medical, education, religion, any job, anywhere, there is an exchange of currency. My guess is perhaps this person is a self entitled welfare bum????
And it is true, the amount of information you can find on the internet is unbelievable! All of my stuff is online, I know it has been pirated, so his statement is correct. But honestly, how many of you will research, organize, research more, weed out the false information, and educate yourself totally by being self motivated?
Some of you will, but 99% will not do it. So much information that no one reads, all at your fingertips!
That is why I have created these programs, done all the research for you and organized everything to make it easy to follow, learn and apply.
Sure there are other things I could do. I do teach martial arts and kyusho in the real world. Been doing it a long time. I worked for 20 years on the assembly line at Chrysler. But this is my PASSION. That is why I do it.
Education is a service industry, and that is why we support all the products we sell. I am teacher and my job is to make sure the student succeeds. Not just sell him some books and videos with a good luck pat on the back.
This is the real deal. The place to learn about pressure points / kyusho jitsu, apply it, teach it and excel in it.
Check out our website from the link below for all the Kyusho produces we currently offer.
Have a great week!
I am not a politically correct person. I don’t not believe in it at all. I believe it is one of the reason we have so many issues in the world, but I digress.
Free sparring has nothing to do with being attacked in the streets. It is part of the sport aspects of martial arts and instructor who say it is NOT are putting their students at risk.
I began my martial arts career in a TKD / Hapkido mix. Hapkido for defense, and TKD for sport. My teacher was one of the best TKD fighters of his era having beat men like Herb Perez. But as I trained I wondered how the ring and street could mix at all.
That is because they don’t! It is like playing baseball with a hockey stick.
In 1992 during the Christmas season I got a very rude awakening. I walked into a street situation of a very large man, and I do not mean FAT, he was a monster, who was harassing and grabbing a young woman. I walked toward the man and got his attention from the young lady so she could run. Then I realized what I was dealing with. This guy was nuts. I was standing on ice and snow, and all my real skills besides a few punches was kicking. I was screwed and I knew it.
Now I was faster then he was and got to my car before he did. He beat on the windows trying to break it to get to me. I realized that day that sport and the real world do not mix.
What you see in a ring is SPORT and not STREET. No matter how good the fighter is, he will have issues in an attack. An attack is not a street fight either! That is 2 guys deciding to beat on each other. Different world and mentality. If he wins it is not because of his MMA skills, but the person he is inside.
Self defense is a different mentality, and a different set of skills. Trying to exchange blows will get you killed, and so will going to the ground. Street defense is very different from street fighting, and all of it is nothing like combat.
Now my purpose with this article is not to get you to come and join my dojo which is all about street defence, it is to present to you what is the equalizer in all this, pressure point usage.
Back in about 2008 one of my Black Belts enlisted in the Canadian Military and ended up in Afghanistan. Now the Canadian presence there is not what people think it is. He told me up his return about how different hand to hand combat was in real life compared to being attacked on the street. You are facing someone skilled who wants to kill you, not just someone who needs money for drugs or thinks you were with his girlfriend and perhaps wants you in a hospital or coffin.
But he did tell me that his Pressure Point knowledge did matter in combat and he was very happy he took so much time to learn properly. He said is saved his life.
If you want to really round off your martial arts study Kyusho Jitsu is the best addition you will make. Below is a link to some great ebooks to get you started.
Have a great day everyone!
Dim Mak, one of those mysterious words in the martial arts. There has been a lot of mystery and wonder over the years of the infamous “death touch.’ Is it real? Or just folklore?
I would like to say I have a solid answer for that question. Years ago I did a lot of research on the work of the late Earl Montague, but he was also a very controversial man.
I spent many, many years thinking about the possibility, researching and working out theories. But can they ever really be tested?
No, not unless you are willing to kill someone to be sure.
In 2014 I began to compile the theories I have, without testing them to the extreme of costing someone their health or worse yet their life. And I did come up with some answers.
Things I think maybe the secrets to the death touch.
Right now I am in the process of a new eBook /workbook on Humane Kyusho Jitsu, which is a polar opposite of Dim Mak. However once that that work is done I will assemble my notes on Dim Mak, and my theories of it, and release it to Kyusho Jitsu World!
If you are interested in this eBook, which I am guessing will be out around the 1st of March stayed tuned to this blog, or become a member of our Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course because that is where regular notices will be posted
Have a great week!
I thought that is was perhaps time to address this question. What is the mandate here at Pressure Points Canada, and Kyusho Jitsu World? For some reason when we speak of learning pressure points people get paranoid.
In ANY field, in any business, anywhere in the world there are always people trying to make a quick buck. It is too bad it is that way. However that is a very small percentage of people even still.
My purpose here is education. I believe this knowledge I was fortunate enough to have shared with me needs to reach as many people as possible, Will I make some money doing it? Of course I will, but NO ONE objects to paying when they are receiving VALUE for their dollar.
There are some thing I offer for FREE, actually a lot of things that I do give away. That part is very rewarding too! I was asked a few months ago on another blog of our, Kyusho Jitsu Romania who I was because he, the Kyusho Black Belt and a DKI member had never heard of me. I have been around a long time now in Kyusho, but I for the most part kept my profile low. My dojo in Canada was just too busy to do anything else.
But today, being semi retired, have great people and great martial artist at my side I can work to make my presence better known. We will continue to put out the best products and services, at the best possible prices, giving the BEST value in the industry!
I thank you for reading and have a wonderful Sunday!
I am so very thrilled at how well the KJWA (Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance) has grown. Today I added a school and teacher from Venezuela! Now i have a special place in my heart for this country as I have been there 2 times in the mid 2000’s
There are many things happening in our alliance as it grows at a steady rate. I am not interested in it being the biggest, but to steal the old Chrysler slogan I do want it to be the best!
There are MANY benefits for membership, and those will increase and grow as we do! And membership is FREE.

The form is at the bottom of this post!
Now that is a pretty broad statement I am making, but it is a truth none the less. As time has been going on, more and more martial artists are seeing the benefits of adding Kyusho Jitsu, or the study of Pressure Points to the repertoire.
This is a good thing!
Personal protection cannot be taken lightly. And it is sad when I see so much of this “ours is better” mentality going around. There is no superior style, only superior artists. I think more and more people are waking up to this.
Pressure Point knowledge added to whatever style you are doing is beyond value. You don’t need to change anything. It does not change what you are doing, just how you are seeing it, and which tools are used in which situation.
It is like an auto mechanic. If you need to take the heads off a motor you don’t do with with a Phillips screwdriver. This is what Kyusho will teach you. What tool, where to use it, why to use it and when to use it.
Pretty basic eh?
Now I am currently working the pressure point knowledge in a different direction. As martial artists most of what we learn is very heavy, often excessive. We can do a lot of damage when we strike or manipulate an attacker.
And this is often very necessary. But there also needs to be balance. That is why I am working on a new eBook, called Humane Kyusho Jitsu. If you want more information, follow the link below!
Most people first introduction unfortunately to Kyusho Jitsu is seeing a knockout. It can leave an impressive in two possible ways.
There really are only 2 reactions. Sadly, the second reaction limits greatly the possibilities of growth as a martial artist. But so be it.
Initially a lot of Kyusho teachers focus on this very “flashy” part of the art. However there is so much more!
Have you ever been in, or seen a conflict that went bad when it really should not have? What if the person could have easily be restrained or controlled until they calmed down? How many times in domestic types of situation have the police used far to much force?
Or medical personnel who are assaulted by patients?
Human Kyusho Jitsu provides solutions to problems before they get out of hand by allowing you to use pressure point to control an attacker. These techniques and applications cause intense pain, making the attacker much more cooperative!
Take a look at our new eBook on the subject of controlling a situation without doing a lot of damage! Follow the link below and learn more!
Our Humane Kyusho Jitsu Techniques Workbook Course is coming January 1st 2017!
Right now i am in the process of writing a new eBook / Workbook for student and instructor alike on Humane use of pressure points in low escalation situations.
This is perfect for teachers, medical professions, and anyone who may find themselves in a low risk, escalation self defense situation.
Read all about this exciting new Kyusho Jitsu Product from the link below!
The question of the day! Beyond the basics is there really more, or is it just marketing?
No there really is more! But first you need a really solid grasp of the basics. Lets look as an example at the first 5 Principles of Kyusho.
This is the beginning of the first year as we discuss these principle. Now I know what you are thinking, “i can memorize that in a second.” But it is not memory, but they must become a part of your unconscious thinking. This way you can reverse engineer your techniques to see the Kyusho in them, not try to reinvent the wheel with new types of movement.
And there is more, there are a total of 15 Principle I teach, that all comes back at the end to only one principle. Once you are there you are a TRUE MASTER of the art.
It is continuously a process of reverse engineering your own style. Not changing it.
How much is there? There is a least 10 years of information assuming you work as hard as I did at it. But, I am always finding new things I did not see before. All of these make me more effective!
It is a great journey for sure!
Where is your level as the reader here? Beginner? Advanced? Master? Well I have a book for whatever level you are at. And the information in the Master Book will BLOW YOUR MIND.

I was looking today at a self defense site in the UK. Self Defense Exposed or something like that. Smart man!
He demonstrates in his video, nothing I would say is new. But it is common sense.
Everyone is trying to sell a product, me included, but my product may not be for you. What do I mean? Not everyone will resonate with what I have to say.
Now he says he has something better then pressure points, and that is nerve strikes. Well, for me there is no difference. I am not an acupuncturist. I often times refer to the nerve bundle I am attacking.
Is there a different? No, not if you really are a pressure point master.
Pressure Points or Kyusho Jitsu are names, don’t fuss over them.
I had a person on Linkedin once comment on a post, what are pressure points, and he said there are pressure points that do not represent a nerve or never bundle. I asked him for an example. He did not reply.
He did not reply because it can’t. That is because the brain ALONE has 85 billion nerve cells. We are basically all nerve bundles and cells. But some are more available to stimulation. These are pressure points.
Sadly as good as this man’s stuff looks, as for pressure points, he is talking from his hat.
Now that could just be salesmanship, and if it is I highly recommend some work with GKIC. What needs to be exposed in a martial art? Nothing, it is the artist not the art that makes if effective.
Always has been, always will be!
Have a good one!
