Fight or Flight

under extreme conditions or situations that manifest mostly depend on the individuals ability to respond correctly.  This stress response is called "Fight or Flight" response in which either your brain or your body responds.

The basics of the physiological reactions:

When presented with sudden or extreme threat, two fundamental body systems work simultaneously to give you the best possible chance of survival, this is largely out of your control and is an autonomic function... as an example; the biggest toughest guy in the bar may turn and run, the tiny young bar tender may not, 90% of what happens is decided by your personal internal physiology.

In time of stress, your sympathetic nervous system and the adrenal-cortical system react at the first sign of a serious threat.  If the threat persists for longer than a few more seconds both systems kick into high gear and adrenaline (epinepherine), noradrenaline (norepinepherine) and a couple dozen other hormones flood the body and the fight or flight response is triggered:

  • Pupils dilate to take in as much light as possible
  • Blood-glucose levels increase
  • Veins in the skin contract allowing extra blood flow to the muscles
  • Smooth muscle relaxes to allow extra oxygen for the lungs
  • Heart rate increases
  • Blood pressure increases
  • Non-essential systems shut down (digestion for example)
  • The only focus is the task in hand

It is your reaction to this flood of chemicals that decides what happens next...


You are probably wondering why this article is placed here... it is because we must train for chaos as opposed to sterile Dojo techniques.... this is a major component of the Intermediate Kyusho Curriculum now being taught.

Vlog 5 is 1 hour and 40 minutes of  an extension of the Kyusho Self Protection Program (with "Fight or Flight" as a main theme), that is now being used worldwide... and is a preparation for the next escalation scheduled for June 1, 2014.  And both are free to our Platinum Subscribers as are all new releases (along with over 40 other titles a complete Kyusho education).

This Vlog includes these tactics being discussed, taught, trained and then brought out into the environment in almost 2 hours of a filmed course for beginners exclusively for Platinum Subscribers.  Also tomorrow you will have the KSP-2 program access this is the same video that will be released in DVD format through budo, yours at no extra charge.
