Attention Kyusho Students

By Master Art Mason | News

​Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu

Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu

Encyclopedia of Kyusho Jitsu

Learning Kyusho Jitsu is a challenge! There is so much information you need to know and remember. You end up carting a log of things with you when you go to class. But now things are about to get easier!

Learn all the details here!

What is in this Encyclopedia?

Here is a breakdown of the contents in this all new project.

  • Technical Reference for points, and meridians
  • Reference for Principles and theories.
  • Alarm Points, Associated Alarm Points, Special Alarm Points
  • History of Kyusho Jitsu
  • Information on Teachers
  • Terms with definitions for reference
  • Charts and graphs
  • Links to Video for reference
  • And much more as the work progresses!

How does it work?

​The first phases is the web edition. This is a members only site, for those who have purchased the encyclopedia via the application. This purchase allows access to the web editions as well as the upcoming mobile apps. All access, one purchase! There will also be a Spanish edition!

​On the, web, phone or tablet application you will have “hyperlink” references to a “private” members only website that will deliver the requested content right to your phone, hence making referencing anything Kyusho easy! The content will be a combination of text, audio or video depending on the reference. The content will grow over time, and really never be finished. 

When will be be available?

That is the million dollar question?  This is an ambitious project and I am estimating it will begin to come online in ​summer of 2018. There will be hundreds of hours of work involved in this project​!

Pre-Order NOW!

​​When you preorder you get FULL access to the online version of the encyclopedia immediately as it develops and grows. Once the applications are ready you will be notified and can then download what you need for the platforms you use! Right now Android and iPhone are the ones in the development planning stage.

​​​The ONLY Kyusho Jitsu Reference you will EVER NEED! Also with FREE Lifetime updates for the applications when they come online. You just cannot go wrong!

Kyusho Jitsu and the Secrets of the Octagon

By Master Art Mason | News

Kyusho Jitsu and the Secrets of the Octagon

Attention Peaceful Warrior Adult Students!!

Kyusho Jitsu and the Secrets of the Octagon

Kyusho Jitsu and the Secrets of the Octagon

I am very pleased to announce today the release of my eBook Kyusho Jitsu and the Secrets of the Octagon! This is a project that is very close to me as it is about the learning and knowledge that led to me founding my own system in 2005. So what is Kyusho Jitsu and the Secrets of the Octagon about?

It is the study of Natural Laws of movement, that govern what can and will happen in an attack, and how to stay safe to successful defend yourself!

Theories of the Octagon

My first look at the theories of the Octagon was in 2000 at a seminar in which I met a man named Soke Raymond Hayes. What he taught that day opened my mind to possibilities and new discoveries! About a year later I began to work closely with one of his former students, a man named Richard Buchan. We worked together for about a year, very intensely and from that point my view, understanding and vision of self defense became much different.

This book with proper training is a revolutionary look at self defense. Everything I teach in a Kyusho Jitsu class to my personal students is always based on this learning. Plus like the science of pressure point self defense it bridges the gaps between techniques and the application of techniques to the street.

Follow the link below and begin your journey on the path of discovery!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Christmas Brasov Romania

Christmas Brasov Romania

On behalf of the founders of the Peaceful Warriors’ Martial Arts Grand Masters Art, Curt and Scott Mason I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and the very best of the season. This is a time for people to put away their difference and come together in peace. They managed to do this even during the Great War, World War I

We have become a culture that wishes to  fight of things that should be discussed and dismiss things that should be fought over. But at the end of the day you will look back, and you want to always see that you did the right thing, and did not waste a moment of the precious time you have here.

Best for the season!

Yours in the arts,

Kyusho Jitsu Virtual Classroom with Grand Master Art Mason

By Master Art Mason | News

We have launched a exciting NEW option at Kyusho Jitsu University which is called the Virtual Classroom. The idea behind this is too teach a pressure point class via Skype in someone’s dojo or training hall. All that is needed is a laptop, a decent internet connection and a large TV monitor if possible!

Virtual Classroom

Virtual Kyusho Classroom

On Saturday September 16th we are going to be doing our first pilot run of this new program.  I have an advanced Kyusho Jitsu Study Groups at my Dojo in Windsor Ontario Canada and they will be the first group doing the test run with me!  From what I have been told everyone is very exciting for this event! It has been more than 18 months since I was last in the country, and as one of my last acts before leaving I did a pressure point workshop for them!

I will be working with Masters Riccardo Pappini and Louise St Jacques , Certified KJWA Teachers, to decide what materials I will cover based on where the students are in their current studies. I have the feeling I will be covering the Kyusho Jitsu Principles from 6-10 and perhaps even going into Alarm Points.  The time set aside for this class is 2.5 hours.

Kyusho Study Groups

Kyusho Study Group

After this session is finished I will be giving a report on how things went on the Kyusho Jitsu World LiveStream on YouTube. I have provided a link to the YouTube Channel if you wish to check this out!

If the students enjoy this experience we will likely repeat it every few months.  I am expecting this to go very well!

The idea and reason behind the “Virtual Classroom” is simple. There is a shortage of qualified and knowledgeable Kyusho Jitsu Teachers in the world and many Dojo owners would like to have the art and science of pressure point self defense as part of their curriculum, but they do not feel comfortable teaching the class themselves. I hear this quite often! So the solution is a virtual classroom. The bonus for the instructor / school owners is they can also make some cash for their school doing this!

As the idea catches on  we expand on it I will make seminars available the same way!

How can you learn more about hosting a Kyusho Jitsu Virtual Study Group in your Dojo or club? That is easy! Follow the link below to our website where you can find out anything you need to know. The site is still under some construction, however if you have a question that is not answered there you can email it to me directly! Email Grand Master Art Mason right here.

I am also planning on recording this test session and making some of the footage available so you can see how this will all work for you! Here is the link now for the Virtual Classroom information!

Martial Arts is about Learning and Sharing the Knowledge

By Master Art Mason | News

With Shihan Norm Rivard Muhammad Ali Training Camp 2010

I have been in the martial arts for a long time now. And truthfully it was the best thing I ever did for myself and my family. The reasons why are just too numerous to mention here!

All of my children train or have trained in the arts up to at least the level of 1st Dan Black Belt, as well as my kids mom. Now everyone is all grown up, but 2 of them are still practicing / teaching in the arts.

So the benefits have been numerous for all of us. But how? Because as martial arts students first, teachers second we have also continued to pursue knowledge. Leaving the ego at the door of the training hall or dojo, to continue our person development.  This is why we have been so successful as teachers and dojo operators.

Our egos don’t get in the way because we know we will never stop learning and then sharing this knowledge with out students.

Over 16 years ago I discovered the art and science of Kyusho Jitsu, and began to share this knowledge with my students in Canada, then others across the world. Why I am so successful doing this? Because I know I still have so much to learn!

Kyusho Jitsu, the art and science of pressure point self defense is a game changer, and equalizer in the real world of escalating violence we will in!

If you are concerned about personal safety, or are a martial artist looking to improve your skills, perhaps a master instructor operating a dojo wishing to give your students more, then get started NOW with our free Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course.

You will be very happy you did!

Peaceful Warriors and Pressure Point Self Defense

By Master Art Mason | News

Master Art Mason and Master Federico Asensio

Since I left Windsor for Romania with Master Scott in January 2016 there has been a lot going on in our lives. For the last 15 plus years pressure point self defense has been a passion of mine. I have been fortunate enough to have the best teachers also.

Brasov Romania

Back in 2010 I traveled to Constanta Romania to do a Kyusho Jitsu (Pressure Point) seminar. I had a wonderful time and fell in love with the country also! Today Master Scott and I call the Transylvanian Mountain Town of Brasov Romania home. But my passion for pressure points never died.

Currently we both spend almost every waking moment promoting the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance and working to expand the number of qualified Kyusho Teachers worldwide. I recently did a seminar in Benedorm Spain, which was an amazing time. I had the privilege of spending 3 days there with a new friend, and enjoying the Mediterranean Sea.

The Mediterranean Sea

Now in the art we teach at Art Mason’s Peaceful Warriors Martial Arts pressure points are flavored into the self defense. However you can also train directly in the art itself. These classes are taught monthly at the school by Certified Kyusho Teachers Master Rick and Master Louise. I believe the next session begins in January.

Now in the mean time, you can join me here, by enrolling in my FREE Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course. This is an email course that will get you started. It does not matter your rank, only your eagerness to learn!. Kara can tell you how good the mini course is!  I suggest this course to all Kyusho Students regardless of rank too!

Below is a form to get you started! Fill it out and find out what this is all about right now!

With GM Stewart, GM Dillman and Master Louise

To Adult Peaceful Warriors

Back in 2001 I began a journey with in the pressure point art and science called Kyusho Jitsu that would forever change the face of Art Mason’s Peaceful Warriors’ Martial Arts. When I joined with Grand Master Steve Stewart everything we did changed.

Today, after about 16 years we not only have dozen of Black Belts in our root art of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido, but also the pressure point system of Kyusho Jitsu. In fact we have several Master level teachers in the arts.

Since my move in January 2016 to Brasov Romania my main focus, my passion has been Kyusho Jitsu. I setup a non political alliance called The Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance, which is the governing body of Kyusho for our schools certification. Now this is FREE, are you a member?

Here is a link to JOIN NOW!!

Everyone in Windsor has the great privilege of having Master’s Rick and Louise there to teach you your Kyusho Classes. This is the type of thing I am mandated to do worldwide with the KJWA. But are you guys in the FREE Courses I have online? Are you serious about learning all that I know?

Here are links to 2 FREE Courses!

Check them out, you will not be sorry!

Now on YouTube each Saturday at 12:00pm Windsor time Master Scott and I are doing a Kyusho Jitsu World LiveStream where we talk everything Kyusho, and any other topic martial arts and non martial arts related. Come and join us! At least once!

Here is a link to the Kyusho Jitsu World YouTube Channel! If you are not yet subscribed do it!

Plus on Saturday September 16th I am going to be teaching your Kyusho Class via Skype! I am pretty sure attendance will be 100 percent on that day?

I am expecting so!

Kyusho Jitsu is a game changer when it comes to martial arts. If you are a new student at Art Mason’s Peaceful Warriors’ Martial Arts for sure check out the mini course above, or ask Master Rick or Master Rob for or information!
