Read part 1 here. They claim it only works in a safe dojo environment. When people do not know or work with a paradigm or method, they tend to easily dismiss it — or worse, condemn it. Kyusho looks very easy and light on YouTube which is how most people first find Kyusho , and it admittedly does look fake in many cases, until you actually learn it. Something else that throws people is the learning curve.
Kyusho is not as easy as just trying to duplicate something seen on a video — although many to their credit have accomplished this. It takes time to develop the right power level, the right angle of attack, the right penetration to get to a nerve between muscles, bones and tendons, and of course, the proper weapon.
However, in the dojo you are being cautious and not applying full intent. So yes, sometime it can fail. But in real need and under full intent, it is incredibly more powerful than the old YouTube videos show. I have heard hundreds of successes with Kyusho in real altercations, besides three of my own experiences.
By far, the best testimonials I receive are from the Law Enforcement and Corrections Officers from around the world. They relate how fast, easy and safe Kyusho is on aggressive, drug or alcohol afflicted individuals they encounter — some on a daily basis. Kyusho is real for those who make it real. My readers love practical stuff. Most people that have seen Kyusho on YouTube have probably tried, and missed, this common point in the neck LI Often they may just have missed the target, or more likely hit it the wrong way, or with the wrong part of their hand.
Also, the strike must penetrate between the strands of muscles overlaying the nerve, since it works best if the nerve is stretched down like a guitar string; the tighter the string, the higher the vibration and frequency. Sensei Pantazi demonstrating the vital point LI, commonly found in many kata bunkai. By stopping the arm as you pull it down a bit, it causes the neck to turn slightly and stretches that area — making it weak and vulnerable.
No complicated explanation. Just a good shot, with a good weapon, to a good target. Note that the left side is attacked, but the reaction is on the right foot, since your left brain control the right side.
I knew this question would come up, and a complete answer would be a full interview all by itself — if not a full book! This can be measured, and now even seen, with scientific devices of many types. We have even done this in several Kyusho studies with medical professionals. Now, anytime electricity moves through or along a conduit — like a nerve — electromagnetic energy can form outside, or even leach out of, the insulated conduits.
This electricity can not only be measured, but also felt. That is how humans feel anger, love or mistrust of people in close proximity. Emotions are energy. It is physiological reality. Is it real, and works because of this electrical interplay we just looked at. In my Kyusho organization, we have studied this and its effects to both parties, and found many interesting and real physiological relations.
As a matter of fact, we just did a 3D brainwave mapping that validated this. Now that I said that, let me also say that this is not combat effective as many in the seminar circuit portray. What is being paraded now is turning many people away from Kyusho, I believe, for the sake of ego. Okay, enough about that for now. But knockout? Can you share that experience?
But I can attest that it actually works better in real life, as the intent and lack of restraint for safety is not a factor.
I was coming home and had three drunk guys approach me, yelling aggressively. As one of them reached to grab me, I punched him in the bicep at a point known as P The man fell instantly and passed out vomiting. That point is still the first point I show beginners!
J: No wonder! And as stated earlier, I know of hundreds of real life situations that worked. As a matter of fact, I have never heard of Kyusho not working when really needed.
Again, it is all in the intensity in which it is used. These are common misconceptions. J: Just like good Karate, good Kyusho is based on history and research. That sounds like a Western medical description, far more realistic than the current TCM paradigm.
When you asked me earlier why Kyusho was not more widespread, this would be a good reason: Total confusion and inappropriate models for teaching it. You can hurt with it, heal with it, control with it and empower people.
It can even enhance intimate relations. This adaptability is simply the study of the human anatomy, but presented in a far more interesting and fun way than studying it in regular classroom!
You need to find the most qualified instructor you can, as you are playing with others health and well-being. It can be done stupidly, as I can personally attest to, or it can be done correctly — so that your Karate has more depth, value and adheres to what it could, and should, be.
Thank you very much, Pantazi sensei! I know my readers appreciate your knowledge, experience and generosity. I will always be available to assist in any future discussions or follow-up articles you would like to do.

This should be your first purchase This is the first information like this released techniques developed by Evan Pantazi over the course of his Kyusho career , that should be a must for EVERY Kyusho practitioner.

And saliva. Lots of it. The instructor just lightly struck his opponent on three points calf, spleen, temple , and the spastic collapse of the attacker was as frightening as it was awesome. Yet, few people seem to understand the huge advantage of knowing Kyusho. I mean, think about it: Can you imagine spending 30, 40 or 50 years practicing the physical techniques of Karate, but almost no time researching the internal physiological functionality of human anatomy in order to cause maximum effect with minimum effort? If you just adjust your aim a little bit, you could literally have 10x the effect.
