Kyusho Jitsu Power Principles

Depending on who you study from you may or may not have heard about the Kyusho Jitsu Power Principles. These are 3 simple principles that dictate how the body creates and utilizes power. 

More importantly these are directly related to the subject of the principle of Attack Using Correct Body Mechanics.

What are the Kyusho Jitsu Power Principles?
  1. Body Mass - The amount of force that can be developed as a direct result of the mass or weight of the body of the attacker or defender.  This also ties in together with any forward motion. 
  2. Torque - The way in which the body moves from the hips. As you walk forward you do not walk in a straight line. You walk instead in a Zig Zag pattern, with each hip retracting and spine turning in an opposite direct of the hip. This torquing motion allows the upper body to increase its strength and force output. 
  3. Marriage of Gravity - This is the upward and downward motion the body creates while moving. It is pretty obvious that any downward striking action will have a great force than an upward striking action.

The basic outline of the Kyusho Jitsu Power Principles.

As I said this all ties into the idea of to attack using correct body mechanics. This would include some of the follow examples.

  1. Angles of attack and defense.  You must strike a pressure point on a 45 degree angle to activate it.
  2. 2 Way Action - Also sometimes called "complex motion." The best term I find for this is when referencing a joint lock to say fulcrum/lever activation. With a punch it relates to the torquing of the arm from the shoulder to the fist. 
  3. Centering - This refers to keeping the attack or counter attacker within your center to optimize power.  This also ties in with triangular alignment;
  4. Stances - Understanding how they work, and how to transition in and out of them to keep control of the attacker and the technique.

When you understand how body mechanics really does work you can by attacking pressure points increase the levels of pain on the attacker, plus make sure he does not have an opening to take advantage of. Thus turning the attack back into his favor.
