What is Kyusho?
Kyusho is a Japanese word that directly translates as “Vital Point.” In many martial arts circles the term Kyusho is associated with pressure points.
Seiyu Oyata coined the term Kyusho-Jitsu in reference to Pressure Point fighting. Grandmaster George Dillman then promoted the term and referenced it to “One-Second Fighting” with the idea that if you utilized pressure points the fight would only be one second long.
What is an Uke?
In the martial arts the term Uke is used as a title for the person who receives a technique. Some schools refer to an Uke as the attacker. In my school we refer to an Uke as “The one who suffers for the sake of learning.”
For my school definition, I have to give Gary Boaz credit. He used the term and definition in one of his web videos on the ExpertVillage channel. I thought it was so cool, I had to use it.

Absolutely yes. If you would like to contract Sensei Mish to teach a workshop, please contact him through his public site senseimish.com.
What is a Kyusho Information Sheet?
Kyusho Information Sheets [KIS] are individual sheets with information on a specific point. There is a corresponding sheet for each episode. You are able to purchase these sheets individually, or if you have a Master Level membership, you can access these sheets for free. You can find these sheets attached to each episode, or find them by meridian here.
If All The Episodes Are Free To Watch, Why would I Need a Membership?
That’s a great question. The simple answer is… To show your support for the series.
Yes, all of the seasonal episodes are free for anyone with or without membership. However, we have created a 3 tier membership scale, with each level giving access to certain materials. Membership has its privileges.
