What is the Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project? Today I will tell you how it came about and what the ultimate goal is behind it. First let me give you a little history.
My root art is Hapkido with some Kata / Hyung mixed in from Tae Kwon Do. I was with my first instructor a total of 16 years. He was an amazing teacher, however as my needs grew the time came to leave and go on my own.
Thus Art Mason's Peaceful Warriors' Martial Arts Institute was born almost 19 years ago.
My my instructor was a TKD sport champion. He taught a well rounded system, however with any well rounded system you can tend to become a master of nothing. I had an incident in the mid 90's that changed the way I viewed my training.
One day I met a violent, very large man I could not handle under the circumstances. Fortunately I got away OK, but it changed how I thought about self defense forever.
After I left my instructor I was on a quest for serious, real street self defense. And honestly I did not find very much! Most was and still is an ego based combat ideal that may work for the "instructor" but likely not for the student!
And thus one of the big issues still today! Because the EX- Military dude can do it does not mean it is right for anyone other than military! Self Defense is NOT combat!
Plus one thing that I really noticed about all of this, was the linear movement. That just seemed to me to be counter productive.
Then in early 2000 I met a man in Toronto who offered something very different. Movement based on ancient sword work. He called Octagon movement. I worked closely with him 2 years. It changed everything we taught as a root art.
During this time I also met Grand Master Steve Stewart and began a very intensive 10 year plus training with him. Today all these events and learning are what the Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project is all about.
I started teaching Kyusho Jitsu, the science of pressure point self defense about 1 week after my first formal class. Why? Because teaching helps you learn! Today I have a large and growing organization, the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance, and work full time on this endeavour.
From all the work I discovered my own ideas, and came up with my own theories. That is part of what the Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project is about.
Today some of the material behind what I am calling the Quantum Kyusho Jitsu Project are available. I have been testing the waters for some time now to see if there is interest. What this is in a nutshell is the combination of some of my Kyusho Jitsu Theories, coupled with the addition of the NON LINEAR Octagon movement.
Back many years ago as I was developing this idea of combining the teaching of Kyusho Jitsu with the "Natural Laws" and movement in the Octagon I was training with a self defense instructor. He told me what I was doing would not work.
About 15 minutes later he changed his mind.
