What is Kyusho?
Kyusho Master Evan Pantazi
In short, an ancient and valuable technical study of structure of the human body, pressure points (nervous system) and energy circulation. Kyusho ideally integrates both of the research on traditional pressure points and modern anthropotomy, and also systematizes all the pressure points which can be found in the whole human body as more complete for martial arts than tradition. Moreover, Kyusho deeply researches into the connection between points, nerve, brain and the circulations of human body. It is not (and should not to be defined as) a martial art, but a knowledge that can be applied to many fields on different targets and purposes including self-defense, actual fighting and medical treatment. Based on the great knowing about human body and the functions inside, by throwing a Kyusho attack on the right point can even cause body dysfunction and knock-out in just one second!
Go deeper, Kyusho literally means “vital point”, the Japanese term that has been in existence for millennia. Kyusho can be traced back into India, where it was called “Marma”, and then to China, where people call it Dim Mak or Dim Hsueh. Kept spreading, Kyusho continually extended from China to Okinawa and Japan. At that time, it is the name what we state now, Kyusho. There are many obvious vital points on the human body which everyone knows such as the eyes, throat, temples and the others. However, there are far more internal vital points that are not well known to people and were hidden from many martial artists until the recent period in history. Basically, both of them can be sorted as two main categories of physiological structure : Blood and Nerve related. These formerly secret points on the human body discovered from the ancient cultures are for both healing and martial purpose, as they relate and can control the functionality of body. This is just Kyusho.

“As a civilian you need to be prepared for any eventuality or emergency, we can not rely on Law Enforcement officers to be everywhere or able to get to us on time… it is our personal responsibility! We have the Kyusho Tactical Applications Courses for you, be it in hand to hand or firearm training our inclusive programs are there for you, see Civilian Needs below! For Law Enforcement you have needs as well as protocols you must follow by law.”
We can see Societal Unrest unfolding around the globe from protests on Bank Frauds to Governments Austerity measures, to now surging food shortages! We see Presidents leaving their Countries high and dry (and with a bundle of gold), while the masses have nowhere to turn. We see Congressional leaders shot point blank in the head in public meetings… and it is all just beginning to rise not even close to peak frenzy!
You now more than ever, must be aware of your surroundings, situations, and environments and never think it can’t or won’t happen to you! You need to prepare and the first step is to realize the possibility as well as probability.
There have been a lot of people talking about the Normalcy Bias of late, which in short is the mental state people enter when facing a disastrous event. It causes people to severely underestimate the impending affects and it is the cause for their lack of preparedness. Based on never facing such an event a person will find it difficult to conceive it could or will occur (especially in their world). In our instance a violent attack or riot situation would never be expected, as it is not the norm and as such could not possibly happen to them.
Now since you are reading this website it is understood you are not prisoner of the Normalcy Bias, but you may be unacquainted with Situational Awareness and even more likely not physically or mentally prepared for personal protection need.
Situational awareness is just that, being aware (and ready to act) in a presented situation. As example noticing in a crowd who is eyeballing your ring, who is looking around to see if anyone is looking, what your escape route is when you sit down at a restaurant, etc. This is not paranoia, it is being aware of possible situations that could occur and how you would physically remove yourself and those you were with from it.
Next you must have responses and skills to physically remove the treat of that situation, they must be automatic muscle memory and not a though process. If they are not ingrained or trained, your mind will be involved and vulnerable to the reactionary time or even denial of the situation. Decisions take valuable time and are prone to miscalculation under stress or just overwhelmed by the greater momentum of the opposing force. This can be the difference to being victorious or alive as opposed to stabbed, shot, struck, run over (crowd stampede at a discount stores come to mind), or even the target of a Molotov cocktail. You need to be able to instinctively respond to advance, move off angle or even escape, you do not have the time to think, this must be a reflexive action, not a thought process. We do this driving for the most part, but few bring these type skills and actions to a personal level in confrontation.
The next piece… and this is critical, you must be target or goal recognition/acquisition oriented as opposed to technique oriented. You must be stress trained, aware of your environment and capabilities and natural in deployment. This is where most self-defense courses fall short as they bog you down with techniques for various situations, which in turn requires thought of the necessary technique for that situation (or the problem to be presented exactly as the “technique” requires). You must develop maximum affect with minimum exertion as the adrenaline release that occurs under stressful situations severely hinders strength, agility and physical motor skills… as well as impaired thought.
The last piece, but not totally inclusive is; can you do it when needed? Can you evade a personal assault? Can you actually strike someone if needed? Can you instinctive deal with the situation? Well if you never did it or even trained to do it to begin with, then chances are highly unlikely you could in a real situation. It is like so many people that carry a firearm, but never trained tactically… well can they even hit their target, fix a jam that may occur, or even move instead of just aiming like so many do on a target range? You must come to terms with this crucial aspect prior to the actuality by training yourself.
You must also research to find who can help you develop this realistically, not just look in the yellow pages for self defense instruction. Think about it as you have in your financial life, do you know that not all financial planners or companies are good or are they just in that business? You knew you needed information like this and why you are here, to take a different route because you knew you needed more than conventional and ineffective or severely outdated models. You know you want and need to become better positioned for this very real threat before it strikes. Our mission is to help prepare you for the impending personal assault or crises? How we can help you To most people this is a confusing and somewhat fearful subject, but it is not dangerous… it is more dangerous to ignore this personal need. Training in personal protection is amazingly empowering with a new gained sense of liberation from the fears of a growingly restless population. One must consider the vital point that when you have prepared yourself for future success financially, you immediately then become a target for those with less and that gap is growing more each day. By helping you develop the confidence that can only come from this type of training, you will realize the benefits that overlap in all aspects of your daily life. You could gain training quickly and efficiently (no matter what age, gender or physical condition) in personal protection with just your hands, firearms, setting up a secure home, preparing or handling home invasion, abduction or other personal/family assaults. This is where we can help you.

Kyusho is a study of the human condition and it’s frailties. Based on the ancient acupuncture and pressure point massage methods, we can easily rid the body of common ailments.
Within seconds we begin to relax and ease the pain associated with headaches, backaches, muscle and internal cramps, hiccups, asthma, nausea, sinus congestion and so many more. Relieve stress and rid yourself of insomnia and many more stress related difficulties, all without expensive pills or drugs that can have serious side effects. This holistic approach has been effective for many thousands of years in cultures throughout the world. You will learn this incredible information in simple and understandable language and demonstration.
One of the benefits of Kyusho lay in the duality of health and hurting. As most Doctors have never inflicted the stress, dysfunction, altered vision, hearing, breathing,etc. issue on their patients,they do not always have the full concept of an individuals pain, stress or physical ramifications. We Kyusho folks do inflict these issues on training partners (as well as receive) regularly, so our study of restorative measure gives us a different viewpoint, with deeper and more variable perspectives… especially with pain management.
Doctors of old worked this way and even in the energy development aspects. That is why the Caduceus (medical symbol) depicts energy flow as the path to healing. This symbol contains ancient ideology of the Yoga tenants of Shushuma, Ida, Pingala, Kundalini and Pineal function… that is also why I am writing the book of energy,health and anatomical function within Yoga. This health program works hand in hand with the bodies energetic s and physical structures to really care for the whole person.
The more we learn, the more we realize it is all intertwined and what the powers that be tried to hide from us. We are proud to offer this simple method of restoring Health & Wellness so that you too can help your family and friends with many of these common ailments.
