Dan Grade course

Why a Dan grade course?

Our Kyusho Jitsu course and Dim Mak course brings people up to Black Belt level in Kyusho Jitsu and Dim Mak after a grading.

In both courses there is a lot of theory, for example about how we look at it from an Asian point of view, but also from a Western mind point of view.

All the participants, who completed both courses, have been using both Kyusho Jitsu and Dim Mak in their own discipline.

We have a syllabus for Kyusho Jitsu and Dim Mak for Aikido, Ju Jitsu, Karate, Tae Kwondo, Aiki Jujitsu, Aikibudo, Hapkido etc.

After achieving their 1st Dan in our system, there isn’t much progress in the system.


For that, we have developed a new course. This is the 2nd Dan course.

Science or science fiction?

Dim Mak is based on the ancient art of acupuncture. According to acupuncture theory there is a circulating life force that travels through distinct invisible pathways in the body. These pathways are called meridians and each one is related to one of the internal organs.

When the Dim Mak points are attacked it is believed that the flow of energy is disrupted resulting in illness or death. The idea of a life force circulating through invisible channels is a difficult one for some of us to accept.  However, when this life force is explained as electricity, the concept becomes much more reasonable to the Western mind.

The Dim Mak points are usually located very close to or directly on the nerve, therefore the manipulation of a point could easily stimulate the adjacent nerve.  The nervous system works through minute electrical impulses. Any electrical current no matter how diminutive gives off electromagnetic radiation. Thus, one could conclude that the points are really doorways to the nervous system and that the circulating life force is actually the electrical activity of the nervous system.

Peripheral nervous system

The vulnerable areas of the body that are used in martial arts, have many names

Dim Mak points, Vital points, Kyusho points and pressure points.

Originally, these points were defined as areas where one could attack an opponent’s internal energy. However, it’s easy to proof that these points affect the nervous system. Dim Mak points are usually located on a vulnerable nerve. In fact, it is impossible to attack a point without attacking a nerve.

The fact that points are painful when attacked, provide further evidence of their effect on the nervous system.

Medical science has found that pain is sensed and conveyed to the brain. This is through the nervous system. .
