DSI folks- I am curious. I just spent the last 45 min or so on the DSI link that one of you gave meijin I believe. It was time well spent. I am interested in expanding the base of my own education. I actually found a DSI instructor in my state. I also noticed that some of the instructors listed were female. I will keep the link for when I am ready to buy more products for myself.

What would you regard as important reasons why a female might be better off studying pressure points with DSI as opposed to DKI or KI? That is assuming, which is seldom the case, that the learner has access to qualified instruction from the organization of her choice.

I know what kinds of things frustrate me as a female learner. I'm curious to know if they are addressed better by DSI.

Please do not read anything political or provocative into my post as none was intended. I am not a political person when it comes to my training, just practical. I am very happy to learn from anyone who is willing to teach me something I want to learn.

What state are you in if you don't mind me asking? I know most of the DSI folks...and just about all of the instructors.

I don't mean to start any flame wars DKI folks don't send me any nasty emails or messages...I am just going to state my opinion as to the DKI vs. DSI issue.

I know George [Dillman] and have crossed hands with him. Also, I know and have crossed hands with lots of his senior yudansha (6th dan and above). For me, I find the paradigm and teaching that the DKI promotes as more a "monkey see, money do" type of situation. George teaches from a vastly Western Medicine perspective and then tosses in a mish-mash of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Alot of the TCM side he/they get totally wrong. After looking at both sides and training with both sides, I made the personal decision that the TCM paradigm is what worked best, what explained things the best and that the instructors there were more capable. Again, that is my opinion. I think that others from the DKI side could say the exact opposite. That is my opinion. I suggest that you do the same and form your own. I am not saying that George or the DKI people do not have talent or ability, I am just simply stating why it is that I went the way that I did.

If you have anything that you'd like to discuss offline, please feel free to contact me directly.

Hope that is of some help to you.
