The Natural Laws Found in Self Defense

Natural Laws Found in Self Defense

Martial Arts are taught wrong for a reason. Yes I said it, real martial arts are at first taught WRONG, then corrected as time advances.  Big movement, exaggerated movements are taught to reprogram the brain to learn more about the body and movement.  This helps when done correctly to expose the Natural Laws Found in Self Defense.

As an example many arts teach students to "C-Step."  Are you aware that is actually an exaggerating version of how you really walk? Someone who does not have leg issues will walk in a ZIG/ZAG pattern like below.

This movement happens because of the way your hip retracts with each step. It also will explain to you why it is such a challenge to walk a straight line.

A gymnast learns to overcome this issues by changing the rotation of the hips when they perform on a balance beam!. 

Natural Laws govern all motion. Proper martial arts training is a breakdown of old ways of movement, and a buildup of new better ways to move the body. An understanding of the way the body works. When this is turned outward we begin to see the Natural Laws Found in Self Defense.

Blocks are Strikes

Blocks are Strikes

Another example is a "block." There is really no such thing as a block. Everything is a strike. When an untrained person has someone punch them there is a natural response to this. Perhaps the arms come up and protect the face as an example.

However the martial arts will teach a technique, and call it a block. They have to override the impulse to throw the arms in the air to defend. Instead they do an block, that is actually a strike.

Kyusho Jitsu is Everywhere in your art!

The science of pressure point self defense is part of every martial art. It is part of the Natural Laws Found in Self Defense! Now it is in every art in the sense that pressure point strikes and pressure point related joint manipulation are present. [nerve strikes]

Kyusho Jitsu is in all martial arts

But out of the box there is little information given in most cased.  It has been bled out of the systems in order to expedite the program and advance the sport aspects. Once it is reinstated the martial art or system once again becomes deadly.

What are Natural Laws Found in Self Defense?

It is beyond the scope of one article to explain everything, but I will delve into it some right now! Let's look at a few examples.

A man is attacking you, preparing to throw a punch! Where will he aim? Will he attack you where you stand, or will he predict your movement and punch where you are going to evade him?

Perhaps he will try to punch you in the face or other center of mass? Or will he attempt to hit your shoulder? Do I really need to answer this one? I hope it is obvious. 

After the Punch - Natural Laws Found in Self Defense

Let's jump ahead here to after the punch is thrown.  We can read the body language, see the signs and have a pretty good idea that an attack is coming. But after the movement begins, where is the attacker the weakest?

We know for a fact the majority of his power is at the end of the projectile, his fist in this case. If he hits us solidly there will be damage. But because of the Natural Laws Found in Self Defense, like the Yin-Yang Theory we know that were there strength there MUST be WEAKNESS!

Kyusho No Touch Knockouts

Yin-Yang Theories of Kyusho Jitsu

Do you train to see this weakness? Also do you train to attack this weakness? What tool can be used to counter attack? And what will the effect be? Plus what angle must I be at to get the optimum result?

When it comes to Natural Laws Found in Self Defense I am only scratching the ice on the very tip of the iceberg! And yes, this is not beginners information!

How do you learn this?

The science of pressure point self defense has a BIG part in the equation that is self defense. As I have stated many times it is NOT a martial art, but a system that is incorporated into an art, to reveal its true potential!

The good news is I have a solution to all these questions! An expanding of the understanding of Kyusho Jitsu and the Natural Laws Found in Self Defense. Hence making this information critical to anyone truly interested in real self defense!

Is it easy? No, there is some serious study and work to learn it! I am called the package of this information, this understanding of the Natural Laws Found in Self Defense and Kyusho Jitsu, "Quantum Kyusho Jitsu."

I believe in the theory that self defense, someone attacking you is like a living breathing entity.  Bruce Lee spoke of this also in his epic book Tao of Jeet Kune Do. And this is what I mean when I am referring to "Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense."

Back in the 80's and 90's I read everything on Bruce Lee I could get my hands on. Many of the books more than once too! I did not care about his "style" or his movie fame. I was interested in the way he thought.

Bruce Lee was an extraordinary thinker. He was someone who was always on the outside of the box!

What is Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense?

This is a different view of self defense. A more all inclusive idea and a way to pursue excellence in the field. There are many, many different reasons why some people win and some people lose when they are attacked on the streets. 

There are many very negative people in the self defense world. The reason is that they reflect their lives and their experience.  Soldiers have been to hell and back, so have police officers.  But there experience is vastly different than what you or I, the average person will ever face!

Why is that? In a confrontation the attacker knows he or she is going to have their hands full with a Cop. They expect a powerful response and therefore are prepared for this. When someone chooses a victim on the streets, they are NOT expecting a formidable response. 

This is our advantage! Long ago I had someone in a bar who was told who I was come up to me and say "you don't look like a Black Belt." When I said "thank you" he was kinda surprised.

Building Blocks of Self Defense

Physical movement is the foundation of self defense. At a foundational level martial arts training is only about movement. It is not about blocks or strikes, it is about understanding how your body moves, and then mastering that movement so that you can respond to someone trying hurt you. 

The more well rounded the training obviously the more different situations can be compensated for.  

The next stage or what should be the next stage is mental preparation.  The mind is everything! If you think you will fail then you will 100%.  Stress types of training are also very beneficial to see how the Flight or Flight reflex will play in.

Understanding the Attacker

The next stage that is involved in Extraordinary Quantum Self Defense is to understand the attacker. In a perfect world you would be able to make some kind of judgement on the attacker from a psychological standpoint. Now this is something I find of great interest so I practice trying to figure out anyone I meet!

However most people give little thought to this aspect of self defense.

But, it is VERY important while training to learn about how an attacker will move, will attack you. And the natural laws that dictate how this all works!  There are several ways to do this, but the most important one will happen on the Dojo floor!

You need a training partner who attacks in a realistic manner.  Now there is a learning curve here, because we deal with a wide range of students.  But in time the attack needs to be full power, and without notice of attack!

Science of Pressure Point Self Defense

Along this path of both understanding the attacker and the defender is where the science of pressure point self defense sits.  It takes the study of movement, the natural laws of motions and adds a way to increase effectiveness. 

It is like going from a car that gets 10 miles to gallon to one that gets 50 miles per gallon. And it does so without a sacrifice of power! So why would you not want it?

The movement you learn in your Kata all have an application related to Kyusho Jitsu. Many of these moves are deadly also! 

Seeing them is enlightening!

As an example every movement is a Kata has a purpose. But these are not always easy to see! Why is that? Actually the majority, not all, but the majority of women will see these meaning before men? 

Why is that you ask? Because women "tend" to be more right brained, more creative. Men are usually left brained, more logical. But once you begin to see this, then everything falls into place! 

Kyusho Jitsu makes everything you learn in your martial art have meaning and real life usefulness!

As I have told students on many occasions, I am almost possessed by figuring out how to teach people to be successful on the streets, or in their home if they are attacked. 

Hence I have been compiling and working this information quietly for years. But now I am going to begin to make it available! And I am going to call it "Quantum Kyusho Jitsu."

The information will come in a few stages, all in video format.  The first video which is almost ready to go will be released on July 1st 2018. Now there is a reason for this. I am Canadian and it is Canada Day! And I have always done something Kyusho to celebrate it!

Kyusho Self Defense Basics

Kyusho & Self Defense Basics

Kyusho Self Defense Basics

Kyusho Self Defense Basics

There is so much needless controversy and arguing in the martial arts world about self defense it has just become ridiculous!  Everyone is fighting about what works and what does not work, when they are really just missing the point! So today we will discuss Kyusho Self Defense Basics, with the focus on the Self Defense Basics.

Self Defense Basics - They miss the point!

The issue with people arguing about things is they always miss the point! Self Defense Basics is a look at what the building blocks for success actually are. And I see only a handful of people ever address this! So let's look deep today into the topic!

Self Defense Tips

Self Defense Tips

When you fight back never do it for anything that be replaced.  If all this man wants is a purse let him have it! You do not know if he is armed or has friends. Your life is more important than you valuables!

It begins with the defender

The missed point. Everything begins with the defender! Does the person who is seeking to learn, or advance self defense skills have the internal ability to do it! Now everyone has, but with correct "teaching" I believe everyone can! 

Let's look at some points. 

Do they have the confidence to fight back?

Some people are natural born fighters, other are made.  The student must be able to get past the fear of being attack, take advantage of the "fight or flight" reflex and not become a deer in the headlights.

Real Self Defense Success

Self Defense Basics

It is good she has what it takes to fight back! But trying to deliver a knee to the body is a BAD idea! Never do things to compromise your balance and therefore giving the edge back to the attacker!

Over the years I have had students, both male and female who by their very nature could "fight back" without any training at all! Then I have met those who have great ability, but hurting someone, fighting back is not within them.  Yes this can change, but the student must do the work and want the change! You need to understand the Psychology of Self Defense.

Which Martial Art is Best?

The best martial art is the one that feel right to the student, and fits their personality! You are not going to get someone who is shy into a ring as a fighter are you? There is no difference in a self defense martial art!

Self Defense Basics - Which Martial Art is Best?

Self Defense Basics - Which Martial Art is Best?

The better rounded the martial art is, the better the chances of success. But you also need to take into account risk fact for the student. This can also dictate the choice of styles. 

Self Defense Basic Skills First!

Martial Arts instructors often blow it when it comes to teaching self defense. And I do mean BLOW IT. I have done it too! They try to teach too much too soon, and tell horror stories of their encounters. 

The instructor must but the ego aside and realize that because it works for them does not mean it will work for ANYONE else.  Why do I say that? Because I have spent 18 year studying this phenomenon! 

Plus there are topics within self defense basics that must be addressed! Not to address these is a grave disservice to your students! These are...

Self Defense Basics - Know the Law!

Self Defense Basics - Know the Law!

  • The LAW as it pertains to self defense in your country, state and region. And don't assume you know! Look it up! Here is a LINK to what Canadian Law says.
  • Teach escalation! Your student needs to understand what being aware is all about, what sign to look for that are "telltale" that violence is coming!
  • Verbal skills to de-escalate the situation and try to prevent violence.
  • A well laid out self defense system as part of the root art that teaches simple, low risk moves, strike, locks etc to end a situation as fast as possible. Nothing complicated! It takes 3000 repetitions for the average person to achieve muscle memory. Save the advanced techniques for later!
  • Visualization, properly taught stress training and the science of pressure point self defense to enhance the effectiveness of the techniques or movements.
Self Defense Basics

And I believe everyone needs to take a serious look at what they are teaching, and even if it is solid, advance the knowledge. Don't get stuck in a non grow paradigm in which something that was once effective, no longer is!

Now I can help! I have a NEW Course at Kyusho Jitsu University that does all of the above. It is a 3 Level Certification Course that teaches everything from low to life threatening escalation.

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Now there is something that can cover all the basics you need to know to build a really effect self defense system! 

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

Humane Pressure Point Tactics

At Kyusho Jitsu University I am offering a 3 Level Course called Humane Pressure Point Tactics. And don't let the word humane fool you! These courses cover everything from low escalation situations and how to prevent escalation, all the way up to the life and death weapons seen, multiple attacker scenarios!

This is SOLID realistic information that can help you, provided you do the work, greatly increase you odds of success in a bad situation!

Follow this link and read about the 3 different levels! But don't wait the incredible price will be gone soon!
