Kyusho Study Group

Kyusho is the art of striking or otherwise manipulating vital points on the body to incapacitate, maim, knock-out or even kill an assailant if need be, but is also for revival and health applications. Kyusho is the Okinawan term for what is vicariously referred to in Chinese arts as Dim Mak, Dim Hsueh and/or Dim Ching, or Atemi in Japanese.

Modern day Kyusho as defined by Kyusho International (KI) programme however, focuses mainly on the nerve point applications that are non-lethal, but non-the-less effective. This makes them much more practical both in terms of modern day application and in training for greater skill development, hence the confidence to actually use them in real life if need be.

Kyusho Study Group, Helsinki

Group study and practice is conducted behind closed doors in indoor training facilities for security and safety purposes. The training is lead by a licensed study group leader (SGL) in a friendly workshop format to practice the skills needed to obtain KI certifications. Kyusho International also provides DVDs, books, an on-line training programme and a useful Chat Forum for members to raise and discuss issues relating to their study of Kyusho.

Training in Kyusho with Kyusho International is currently available locally (Greater Helsinki, Finland) only through their local licensed representative and kyusho study groups.
