underdog you have both confirmed and backed up my comments while presenting an counter to my comments
i have done some shiatsu work and would love to do more at some point (pun
) but as you say it can help in your understanding of kyusho but is not a required skill in order to affect a defence with kyusho jitsu.
again i do not think that kyusho jitsu has the exclusive rights to causing internal injuries? if you deliver a really hard punch or kick to the floating ribs they will break. do i need to be able to fix them afterwards to protect myself from the law?
if i were to fully follow through with a wrist lock throw i would break the joint. do i need to know how to form a cast to help the joint heal??
as regards to the law, you need to know the view your local laws take on attacks on the person and adhear to them. i don't think that any law is written in the world where you cannot attack a person in self defence without having prior knowledge of how to heal them afterwards.
i totally respect evan pantazi and nearly joined your group a number of years ago. but did'int in the end.
