What is Kyusho and EPS?

​Kyusho and EPS

What is Kyusho and EPS?

​So what is Kyusho and EPS?

What does Kyusho and EPS stand for? I am sure you understand the term Kyusho which is the name for the science of pressure point self defense. However the term E.P.S may be new to you.

What is EPS?

​Simply put it stands for Element - Polarity - Striking Action. This term is linked directly to the study and attack of the meridians of the body.  Let's take a closer look shall we?

Element: Each meridian on the body is represented by one of the five elements. These are either fire, metal, wood, earth or water.

Polarity: Each meridian and the organ represented has a specific polarity. They are either Yin or Yang.

Striking Action: Because of the above information each meridian also has a "best method" of attack! These are slapping, vibrating, chopping, penetrating and grasping.

Pretty straight forward right? Yes but it all must be committed to unconscious memory so that you use the correct EPS at the moment it is required! Impossible? No, difficult yes. But it all gets down to how you train!

So Much to Remember

In the science of pressure point self defense there is so much to remember! I have been doing this a long time and I can still draw a blank on some information. Last year at the closing of a seminar I was teaching I drew a blank on an Alarm Point. I asked the host to refresh my memory.

But a quick reference would have been MUCH better! Take a look at this link and learn more about the ULTIMATE Kyusho Jitsu reference!

If you have any questions please comment below! This is the best way as it helps others too! Also consider sharing this and other content on social media. It helps greatly to spread the teachings. It is surprising how many have never heard of Kyusho Jitsu!

Have a great day!

12 Meridians of the Body

​12 Meridians of the Body

12 Meridians of the Body

12 Meridians of the Body

Kyusho Jitsu study is based on the 12 Meridians of the Body. Without the understanding of these meridian, everything about them success is very difficult. The meridians have very distinct characteristics, plus along these lines is where the pressure points are found. 

And there is a lot to know!

​As stated above there are 12 meridians of the body, with each one representing an organ. Plus each meridian is mirrored on each side of the body. So in a sense, you are dealing with 24. They each have very distinct characteristics that must be committed to memory. Also being able to trace them on the body is essential! Why? Because they are like a map, and without knowing the routes you will get lost!

Element - Points - Polarity

Aside from tracing the very basics of meridian understanding this short list of items.

  1. Elements - Each meridian is represented by one of the five elements
  2. Polarity - Each meridian has a polarity, either Yin or Yang, negative or positive.
  3. Number of points. Each meridian has a distinct number of pressure points on it.

Yes you must remember and memorize all this! Plus as you progress with this knowledge other things come into effect like "striking action," "time of day," and "stance" to name a few! I do have some great books that deal with all of this!

But sometimes you just need a solid and fast reference! And so I decided to create that reference. Hence the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu! Most of all right now you can have a detailed look at this project for free! We are in the beta test stage, but very soon I won't be accepting any more testers!

Success Learning Kyusho Jitsu

Learning Kyusho Jitsu

​Being successful in learning Kyusho Jitsu requires time and work. There are no short cuts and anyone who says there is, well they are lying! However there are better methods and practices to help you get there!

The first year or the "novice" study is the most challenging because there is so much to learn. And it MUST be memorized. My first year was a big challenge for me because I had been out of school for years. Plus I was not a good student in school. I was very average.

​Novice Learning

Here is an example of ONE item that must be committed to memory in the ​novice year, that you do not really even use until advanced sessions.

24 Hour Cycle

  • 3:00 am to 5:00am Lung
  • 5:00 am to 7:00 am Large Intestine
  • 7:00 am to 9:00 am Stomach
  • 9:00 am to 11:00 am Spleen
  • 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Heart
  • 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm Small Intestine

Now for the sake of time I only did half of the cycle. But this is one of those very important memory items! You should also memorize the military time too.

Here is another example:

Meridians

Lung Meridian - The lung meridian has 11 points, the element is metal and it is a YIN organ. The energy flow is leaving the body. The path is in the image below.

Lung Meridian

Lung Meridian

Now considering there are 12 meridians, reflected on each side of the body. Plus 2 vessels, this is a lot of information. Therefore a system, and way to reference becomes essential!

​And the GOOD NEWS I have a possible solution for you! Follow the link below and read more on the best tool and reference available for learning kyusho Jitsu!
