Kyusho Jitsu Course

I am interested in the course

Some of the subjects are:

The purpose of this course is to provide a well explained and safe way to introduce the use of pressure points in martial arts and/or self-defence.

Kyusho Jitsu is a modern Japanese name, given by Hohan Soken to a system which was developed in the 13th century in China, based on the theory acupuncture and the energetic approach of Chi Gung.  

It is all based on the Eastern approach of energy through the meridians, Yin and Yang, the Five Elements, etc…

But also the Western approach has an explanation which we mostly find in how the nervous system works.

The difference between Kyusho Jitsu and Dim Mak is mainly in the energetic way pressure points are activated by mainly using kinetic energy Fa Jin which originates from Chi Gung.  

Both aspects will be explained in the basic course.
