    interesting video Bob, I am not a part of KI or anything but I will say that when people watch the video keep in mind that certain people dont take much on certain points to put them in an altered state of reality. There is a bell curve when it comes to PP that people have to take into account. Also if you try to do any of these techniques not everything is told on the video like if he is twisting, amount of force etc.

    Thanks Bob nice video, Like your comments the best of which touches on the dynamics of combat related to Kyusho jitsu or small circle fighting. First flexibility in application which means you need to adapt to what works or presents itself (Targets of opportunity) to much of standard MA self defense relies on just doing a thing one way. Students need to learn to adapt quickly to salvage the moment to gain the effect instead of just parroting a testing requirement.

    I think you touched on Angle and Direction, many key areas must be touched or hit in a descending or ascending angle which is completely different related to legal sports striking or even some traditional MA hands and feet applications.

    Also energetic applications the same receptors we rely on are just gone under adrenalin dump or duress compared to the cooperative victim.

    Really liked the video on close in fighting demonstrating your already there just use what you have already in knuckles, hand edge or other bony parts to apply compression with an assist.

    Note: on your disclaimer lots of people do not understand that people over 40 should not allow practice manipulation on themselves more than 15 minutes in two weeks and in some case and areas not at all. Blood plaque can be released causing serious damage up to 7 years later.

    Point on Pantazi: Restoration on his assistants seemed a little light and maybe to many applications or repetitions on the same person for their age?

    Last a lot of people think hey I am a black belt it should work for me just like that? Master's Grand Master's that have 3/4 decades or more of training have a lot of personal Chi or Ki not to mention doing the technique thousands of times they can just lite a person up from the first touch compared to others.

    Thanks for the post
