No Better Teacher

experience

Kyusho suffers from an over abundance of theoretical crappola, spewed by instructors so caught up in unrelated paradigms that it leaves little time to actually train well.

In fact many standard points thought to be reliable targets are virtually worthless in dynamic stressful combative training. As an example take GB-20, taught at most classes and seminars all around the world. If the opponents guard is up in any manner or position, the point is receded and almost important to access let alone get results. Yet it is still a main point of interest.

What's more is that it is also the most tried target attempted when people first start the more rigorous training. And even when it does not work the participants keep attempting it... This is because of their lack of experience in more dynamic situations.

So how do you know which points are better than others? Experience. You need to train realistically to know what works and what doesn't. In fact most Kyusho aficionados would be quite upset to know how few points are actually usable. The others that work so well in static technique based training... May be useless or worse place you in a vulnerable position attempting it.

So experience will tell you it is not the point that is important, it is the point you can you can access that is.

Train correctly as if your life depended on it, as it may.
