Join the Kyusho Jitsu Revolution

Kyusho Jitsu Revolution

Kyusho Jitsu Revolution

Kyusho Jitsu Revolution

What do I mean by a Kyusho Jitsu Revolution? To put it simply that is the idea of what the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance was created upon!

I came out of a "traditional" and very strict martial arts system. I had the Korean Grand Master who immigrated to Canada in the 70's and taught Hapkido for a living. He was an amazing man, now passed. Grand Master Oh also at one time had the largest school and martial arts organization in Canada.

Although the school still operates today, it is not what it once was. Times change and as important as tradition can be, it will also cause death to a system.

The Problem with Martial Art Organizations

There is a BIG problem with martial art organizations today. They are VERY controlling and self serving! They are often time in for the sole purpose of making a ton of cash (and there is nothing wrong with that if it includes great benefit to the member) or it is for self glorification of the head of the system. 

That one is the worst of the two! The world of Kyusho Jitsu is no different today! There are many organization, although run by outstanding martial artists, who are protective of information they teach. Will not allow students to learn from anyone but them. And the odds of real advancement in knowledge beyond numbers (as in rank) are low!

There is also very little growth potential for the students on a teaching level. It really can be a "old boys club."  If you want to keep members they must grow and prosper!

Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance is Different!

As part of the Kyusho Jitsu Revolution we began 2 years ago I had the idea in mind of creating a truly non political organization! One in which "effort" is what is rewarded, not doing favors for the people on top! 

An organization with the STUDENT as the most important, and education as the mandate. Kyusho Jitsu University, which is our education division does just this! There are courses for every level of learning!

If you are a beginning we have a course for you! If you wish to master the science of pressure point self defense we have courses for you! There are technical self defense programs [HPPT} and countless eBooks and references to bring everything together for you!

Kyusho Jitsu Revolution

Yes the Kyusho Jitsu Revolution is real, changing the way Kyusho Jitsu is taught and understood. Using western medicine to explain ancient teachings. 

And we are succeeding. We have directors all around the world with more coming in the future. The same with students from across the globe in our courses! All with the opportunity to learn and grow at many different levels.

And the best possible news? Membership with us if FREE! You can become a member totally FREE right now by following this LINK.

The Kyusho Jitsu Revolution is REAL!

Yes the Kyusho Jitsu Revolution is very real! Like a snowball going down the mountain we are picking up speed and getting bigger! I hope you will join us!

KJU Head Office located in Brasov Romania

KJU Head Office located in Brasov Romania

Things are really happening at Kyusho Jitsu University! I am always looking as to how to improve not just the content of our Online Kyusho Jitsu Courses but also the student experience! This week I am going to be adding something really cool! For those enrolled in our courses there will be content specific support forums for questions, answers and discussions!

Back last fall I tried to create some Kyusho Jitsu Forums for the general public and it was a big fail! It was not that people did not use them, but I could not keep the spam bots away! Each morning I would have to delete dozens of spam posts for porn and other things. No matter how we step it up we could not keep them out!

But now for this it is totally different! This system will be SPAM PROOF because of all the special software we are using for this experience! Kyusho Jitsu University members will receive an email when the system is up and running for them to check it out!

What is KJU?

Kyusho Jitsu University is a very special place. We have some great download about course available however KJU is somewhat different. It is for the student who wishes to go beyond and master every aspect of learning the science of pressure point self defense. So to make things simple if you are curious and want to learn more follow the link below!

Kyusho Jitsu World SSL Encrypted

Kyusho Jitsu World SSL Encrypted

Kyusho Jitsu World SSL Encrypted

​Kyusho Jitsu World SSL Encrypted

It has been a busy week at Kyusho Jitsu World as we have been adding SSL Encryption to all our website. Security and privacy are very important to me. There is nothing quite as bad a feeling as being hacked. It is also not cool for websites and business to sell or give away your information without your permission! AND WE NEVER DO.

You will notice on this site, and soon all of our website the little GREEN LOCK in the browser address bar. This means your visit here is encrypted and no one can read anything you write! This allows for you to not only put your name and email address into a form, but also to purchase using a credit card, which may prefer over PayPal and not worry the information will be stolen!

What is SSL Encryption?

This is an extra "layer" of security between our sites and you that provides a method of keeping your data safe! This is the same security that you use for online banking. In other words it works! It is also becoming a requirement by Google. Soon for any website to be indexed ​they must be SSL certified. This begins in July 2018 I believe.

Email Encryption

As I have said, I am big into the privacy thing. Any information I release to the world about myself is on purpose. The recent, very defiant issue with Facebook and data has even encouraged me to take more precautions. Therefore I am suggesting that everyone look into PGP/GPG encryption for their emails. Below is a link to learn more!


If you have any questions please feel free to comment below! Also please share our content on social media with like minded martial art friends. If you have not had a chance yet also check out the Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu!

Have a great day!

A Few Good Martial Artists

​A Few Good Martial Artists

A Few Good Martial Artists

A Few Good Martial Artists

I am looking for a few good martial artists. One for sure, maybe two. But I cannot take more than this! What am I talking about? Let me explain.

Kyusho Jitsu University Coaching Program

I have spent the last 20 years of my 34 year martial arts career in the study, and understanding of real life street self defense. The game changer in all this was when I discovered the science of pressure point self defense.  Kyusho Jitsu is a GAME CHANGER! Therefore its importance cannot be over emphasized! But you have to do the work!

I will often see in self defense classes students taught to treat an attack like they would fighting in a ring. That is death under almost all circumstances. If you want to know why email and I will be happy to explain! Students are also taught to "stand their ground." Also very WRONG!

Real self defense requires a lot of knowledge, training and understanding! This is the reason for the post.

This is not for everyone!

This leads me to what I am speaking of! Right now I am looking for one, perhaps two people who would qualify for one year of coaching directly with me. Not only will I be teaching all I know about Kyusho Jitsu, but also the self defense world in general.  If you think you might be interested follow the link below and fill out the application form.

I currently have one person in the program now, and have turned another down. But this just may be what you are looking for!

If you have any questions please comment below! Also please share our posts with like minded friends on social media!

Have a great day!

5 Reasons To Become a Kyusho Teacher

​Kyusho Teacher

Kyusho Teacher

Kyusho Teacher

​What are the TOP 5 Reasons to become a Kyusho Teacher? Well lets take a look!

Reason One. As many martial artists and school owners know when you teach anything to do with martial arts you get better at it yourself! I began teaching Kyusho Jitsu on my classroom floor as soon as I began learning it myself!

Reason Two. Kyusho Jitsu helps to keep student motivated and coming to class! I would do classes on a Friday night and have a FULL turnout of adult students because they wanted to learn more!

Reason Three. When you add Kyusho to your self defense program it becomes much more effective! This increases the value of your program and helps keep students longer!

Reason Four. You can create "kyusho study groups" and certify students in the art. This adds to the bottom line of your school, which is always a great idea!

Reason Five. Kyusho can open the doors to teaching police and military. These groups are not going to be interested in your root art or style because they have their own systems. But when you can show them how to increase the "effectiveness" of what they are doing then you have their interest!

Becoming a Certified Kyusho ​Teacher

I have been working very hard to remove as many barriers as I can to becoming a Certified Kyusho Jitsu Instructor. If you follow the link below you can learn more about benefiting from this important aspect of Kyusho training! Follow this link and learn more!

International President Appointed to the KJWA

​International President Appointed to the KJWA

International President Appointed to the KJWA

International President Appointed to the KJWA

I am very please to announce today the appointment of our International President to the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance.  Congratulations to Master Federico Asensio of Spain on this new position! As we are growing, and growing quickly. I cannot do everything myself. Master Federico has worked harder and more consistently than anyone in the growth of our Alliance! So I am thrilled to welcome him to this very important position as International President!

As I have stated in the past I have no interest in the politics of martial arts. We reward effort, dedication and hard work! This is the true "middle way!"

Building a STRONG Alliance

I have belonged to many federations over the years. As well several groups who claimed to be non political but were nothing but political. Now in every alliance there must be rules and a hierarchy, however the voice of the membership needs to be heard! And that is what we are all about! Our directors have autonomy for their regions, but they obviously must meet certain minimum standards! What I love to see is when they surpass those requirements and go beyond! There are great opportunities for grow in the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance!

If you would like to learn more about the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance and perhaps becoming a director please contact me via email at master@kyushojitsu.ca

Once again congratulations to Master Federico!

Visit Master Federico's Blog! Have a great day! I am looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Freedom to Teach Kyusho Jitsu

​Teach Kyusho Jitsu

Freedom to Teach Kyusho Jitsu

Freedom to Teach Kyusho Jitsu

The freedom to Teach Kyusho Jitsu is very important to anyone who wishes to become an instructor, and make some money doing it! And there is nothing wrong with this idea contrary to what some "martial artists" think. But the "freedom" part is critical!

As teachers under the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance you have that freedom! You have my backing and support, but you may conduct your classes as you see fit, and promote your own people. If you wish a KJWA Certificate for your students there is a minimum standard that must be met. However teaching above this standard is great! Therefore you have the control! That is what an "alliance" is!

My Own Story

As many of you know I have been doing the teaching martial arts thing for 30 plus years. Part of this time working running a school for my teacher. Then since 2000 i began running my own schools. ​My experience on the floor teaching? Literally thou​sands of hours. 

Now also as many of you know when it comes to Kyusho I am a student of Grand Master Steve Stewart. To my mind he is the best in the business. Plus we see eye to eye on many, many things. He is a very devoted martial artist, and dedicated to his Kyusho Jitsu teacher GM Dillman. All great stuff! I was never a real member of DKI because I never paid the yearly dues. MY certificates which hang on the wall in my Dojo in Canada are all signed by GM Dillman. I have the utmost respect for GM Dillman and his organization! I owe my linage to these people. They are all awesome people!

So why did I leave? I did not see the opportunity for my personal growth as an ​International Kyusho Jitsu instructor. Being a serial entrepreneur this is what I am and I wanted and needed more. So I went out on my own, again and ended up creating the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance.

The Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance

This is a place where Kyusho Jitsu students get to become teachers, and teachers get to continue to learn and grow. I am not a government standing in the way but an Allie here to help!

Right now I have tor​n down the barriers to becoming a certified Kyusho Jitsu Instructor my cutting the price of the Level One and Two Course by $900 each! Right now they are $97 EACH! This includes EVERYTHING even your GRADING! Plus I have made a payment plan available which makes it even easier!

Follow this LINK NOW and read more about this course!

And the best news is! Ever with this incredible low price you still get all the support you need, when you need it! If you have any questions please comment below. This helps others seeking information! Also share this post with like minded martial artists of social media looking for growth opportunities.

Have a great day!

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Courses

​Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Courses

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Courses

Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Courses

You too can host Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Courses! There are a few ways this can be done. Let's take a look at some of the options!

  1. Create study groups in your dojo and bring a Certified KJWA instructor in to teach. Typically these would be a weekend session, perhaps 6-8 hours per day, then repeated every 6 months or so until exams are done. This is how it has been done for many years!
  2. ​Purchase the certification course, do the work, do the exam and begin your own groups! This is ​simplest and the cheapest way to go.

If you are a martial artist adding Kyusho Jitsu to your training is not that complicated. It does however, like anything else require some dedication! You gotta do the work to get the results! However the benefits far outweigh the work and expense!

Kyusho Jitsu Education Month

Because we are now in the middle of Kyusho Jitsu Education Month you have the chance to become a Certified Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance instructor for a fraction of the price! Right now until the end of March you can get our Level One Instructor Certification Course for more than 90% off! Follow the link below and learn more. This is an ALL INCLUSIVE Course also!

ACT NOW!
