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?

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.

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?
