Are you prepared?
As a civilian you need to be prepared for any eventuality or emergency, we can not rely on Law Enforcement officers to be everywhere or able to get to us on time... it is our personal responsibility! We have the Kyusho Tactical Applications Courses for you, be it in hand to hand or firearm training our inclusive programs are there for you, see Civilian Needs below!
For Law Enforcement you have needs as well as protocols you must follow by law, for you we have a specialized Kyusho Tactical Control Program designed for you. See Law Enforcement below for details.
The truth is the world is in dire trouble and there are no sanctuaries left.
Life for all is about to radically change!
The Governments irresponsibility as well as the financial systems are on the verge of Global collapse. There will be riots, social unrest, food shortages, hyperinflation and the complete disintegration of the middle class. You must prepare for the worst of times to know only the best of times... that is what we are committed to helping you understand, and begin preparing for the inevitable event.
We see the riots in Greece, spreading in the US and many other countries around the Globe with many more coming.
All currencies are being debased and will eventually be worthless, history is again repeating, only this time it is Global and there is nowhere to run.
If you think it won't happen... neither did the rioting people in Greece, France, India, China, Iran, USA... these are not third world countries, this is the civilized world in decay!
Do you have (more links coming soon):
Do you know what to do in a home invasion, have you set a plan for your family or even a safe room?
Do you have a primary escape plan including where and when to go?
Have you prepared your home with an alarm or even window film to prevent break-ins?
This is not just for crazy people or in preparation for crazy people... think or the extremes in weather we are experiencing, countries, states and towns are flooding that never have before, crops are being destroyed and a spike in food prices looming... what about terrorist attacks like bombs set in transportation or public gatherings.
This is all here and now, people with no tactical training will panic, not have any ideas on what to do, how to do it and where to go. These are not merely thoughts of fringe survivalists, this is real... look at murders by invading drug gangs in Arizona or Texas... it is here folks and if you do not prepare you may find yourself in serious trouble if something did occur!
What about stampedes at retail stores... crazed gunman in a crowd, incredible daily events occur with most people unaware, unprepared and frozen in disbelief.
We are here with information, sources for needed life sustaining goods, counseling to prepare you and help you gain the advantage over most of those that will be caught unaware and un-prepared!
We have training programs in weapon handling, tactics and safeguarding you and your family, with an international base of instructors.
Survival, not of the fittest, but of the prepared!
We can see Societal Unrest unfolding around the globe from protests on Bank Frauds to Governments Austerity measures, to now surging food shortages! We see Presidents leaving their Countries high and dry (and with a bundle of gold), while the masses have nowhere to turn. We see Congressional leaders shot point blank in the head in public meetings… and it is all just beginning to rise not even close to peak frenzy!
You now more than ever, must be aware of your surroundings, situations, and environments and never think it can’t or won’t happen to you! You need to prepare and the first step is to realize the possibility as well as probability.
There have been a lot of people talking about the Normalcy Bias of late, which in short is the mental state people enter when facing a disastrous event. It causes people to severely underestimate the impending affects and it is the cause for their lack of preparedness. Based on never facing such an event a person will find it difficult to conceive it could or will occur (especially in their world). In our instance a violent attack or riot situation would never be expected, as it is not the norm and as such could not possibly happen to them.
Now since you are reading this website it is understood you are not prisoner of the Normalcy Bias, but you may be unacquainted with Situational Awareness and even more likely not physically or mentally prepared for personal protection need.
Situational awareness is just that, being aware (and ready to act) in a presented situation. As example noticing in a crowd who is eyeballing your ring, who is looking around to see if anyone is looking, what your escape route is when you sit down at a restaurant, etc. This is not paranoia, it is being aware of possible situations that could occur and how you would physically remove yourself and those you were with from it.
Next you must have responses and skills to physically remove the treat of that situation, they must be automatic muscle memory and not a though process. If they are not ingrained or trained, your mind will be involved and vulnerable to the reactionary time or even denial of the situation. Decisions take valuable time and are prone to miscalculation under stress or just overwhelmed by the greater momentum of the opposing force. This can be the difference to being victorious or alive as opposed to stabbed, shot, struck, run over (crowd stampede at a discount stores come to mind), or even the target of a Molotov cocktail. You need to be able to instinctively respond to advance, move off angle or even escape, you do not have the time to think, this must be a reflexive action, not a thought process. We do this driving for the most part, but few bring these type skills and actions to a personal level in confrontation.
The next piece… and this is critical, you must be target or goal recognition/acquisition oriented as opposed to technique oriented. You must be stress trained, aware of your environment and capabilities and natural in deployment. This is where most self-defense courses fall short as they bog you down with techniques for various situations, which in turn requires thought of the necessary technique for that situation (or the problem to be presented exactly as the “technique” requires). You must develop maximum affect with minimum exertion as the adrenaline release that occurs under stressful situations severely hinders strength, agility and physical motor skills… as well as impaired thought.
The last piece, but not totally inclusive is; can you do it when needed? Can you evade a personal assault? Can you actually strike someone if needed? Can you instinctive deal with the situation? Well if you never did it or even trained to do it to begin with, then chances are highly unlikely you could in a real situation. It is like so many people that carry a firearm, but never trained tactically… well can they even hit their target, fix a jam that may occur, or even move instead of just aiming like so many do on a target range? You must come to terms with this crucial aspect prior to the actuality by training yourself.
You must also research to find who can help you develop this realistically, not just look in the yellow pages for self defense instruction. Think about it as you have in your financial life, do you know that not all financial planners or companies are good or are they just in that business? You knew you needed information like this and why you are here, to take a different route because you knew you needed more than conventional and ineffective or severely outdated models. You know you want and need to become better positioned for this very real threat before it strikes. Our mission is to help prepare you for the impending personal assault or crises?
How we can help you
To most people this is a confusing and somewhat fearful subject, but it is not dangerous… it is more dangerous to ignore this personal need. Training in personal protection is amazingly empowering with a new gained sense of liberation from the fears of a growingly restless population. One must consider the vital point that when you have prepared yourself for future success financially, you immediately then become a target for those with less and that gap is growing more each day. By helping you develop the confidence that can only come from this type of training, you will realize the benefits that overlap in all aspects of your daily life. You could gain training quickly and efficiently (no matter what age, gender or physical condition) in personal protection with just your hands, firearms, setting up a secure home, preparing or handling home invasion, abduction or other personal/family assaults. This is where we can help you.
Because an exceptional training program and an international network of experts in 30 countries at present, we are positioned for you. But we also realize that time is of the essence for most people today, or because you are highly educated and motivated individuals you would want to fully research the information first. That is why we offer a large selection of books, DVD’s, online educational program as well as real training courses, seminars and ongoing programs. We can also offer personal or group training in hand-to-hand, firearms, executive protection, military and law enforcement (and all other such agencies). Remember everyone is a beginner at first and whatever anyone else can accomplish, so to can you. We want you, your family and friends safe and secure.
Start training now! Thinking about doing it one day could be your downfall, or that of family and friends. - Evan PantaziPlease feel free to contact us - click here... we are here to empower you.

Kyusho (Vital Points) for Forced Entry
As society experiences more and more hardships, there will be more and more crime, more violence and more home invasions.
We all intrinsically understand that we must be prepared, that no longer is crime or violence just something that happens to other people in other places that we only hear about on the news. Most of us have known someone that has been a victim of one crime or another, it is an ever increasing risk and we all understand we could be the next statistic.
But where do you go or who can you seek that will help you prepare for this probability. You can not go to the Police or the Government, you can not rely on the Police being called or even getting to you on time, we can no longer rely on laws protecting us from assailants, it is on you alone and why we have created this new series for your protection.
In this first volume we look at Forced Entry, someone breaking their way into your home or vehicle, while you are still in it. This is not information on what to do in a break in, but rather how to stop the criminal from entering your home or vehicle to rob or harm you. We can not rely on strength or prolonged fighting with the intruder, we need to attack Vital Points that will instantly disable their attack to secure our family or selves.
This is a look at unarmed forcible entry into your home which can be handled using common sense, some prepared strategies and your environment. However in times of stress common sense and correct reactions are difficult especially with no prior thought or strategic planning. With this information we strongly suggest you not only read it or think about it, but we suggest that you actually walk through the various ideas here to gain deep understanding and reflexive response.
KTCP: Kyusho Tactical Control Program - Law Enforcement
Agents as well as their associated Agencies are under public
scrutiny more than at any other time in History. The use of force
issue is one that is realizing fierce public attention and
enforcement, which is making the field Agent’s work all that much
harder as well as dangerous to their personal well being and safety.
Whereas the brave Men and Women are facing more brutal and uncaring
criminals, with little regard for life, they, the ones charged with
protecting us from this vile element, are being forced to treat the
criminal with sensitivity and regard to protect them from even minor
Emergency personnel from Doctors and Nurses, to Paramedics, Private Security, Corrections, Bodyguards, Firefighters and all First Responders of all fields can learn, apply and benefit from this incredible program!
Module 1 was released in 2008 receiving POST approval in three states in 1 year from release... (Arizona, Missouri and Nebraska).
Module 2 was released in 2010 increasing the dynamics of Tactical control
Module 3 will release 2012
Module 4 will release in 2013
This is a major success for the KTCP and for the people that sign onto it. Not only do they get training in techniques that can save their life and career, they get CE credits in top of it. It is fast becoming the pre-eminent Law Enforcement Training Program.
This program has 4 modules, the first which is offered to the public, the other 3 exclusively for those certified in prior Modules.
We have Post Certified training programs for you
or your division, we have an international base of instructors that
can work with you or your department.
Here are a few comments from Law Enforcement agents from various
countries and what they say about the Program.

The first time I used (Kyusho) pressure points to control a suspect I was surprised that it worked so well. Some people had told me that the points won’t work when the suspect is under the influence of drugs, so I couldn’t be sure of the effect. But the pressure points have never failed. The officers I regularly teach in self defense and pressure points are also very satisfied with the techniques in their everyday work.
I use Kyusho) basically every time I touch, grab or throw someone. Usually the suspect doesn’t really understand that I am well prepared if he chooses to resist the arrest. Many of the points I use in my work do not hurt when accessed, only when applied with some force. But at that stage it is already too late for the suspect to do anything about it. He is already on the ground or in a controlled position. Furthermore the pain from the point will be reduced shortly after the pressure is gone and it will seldom leave any marks on the body. And those factors are good for many reasons. One is that you know that you haven’t hurt anyone for real and another is that the suspect also can accept the short but painful technique since the pain actually did diminish or disappear very shortly after.
Some people argue that people under the influence of drugs doesn’t feel pain. And thus should the pressure points be useless. That, in my experience, is not true. It doesn’t really matter if they feel the pain. The nervous system will still react as predicted most of the times. It isn’t the pain that is the key; it is the physical reaction to the stimuli. Pain can be good in training, because it tells us that we are on the nerves.
From a legal security aspect the pressure points are of great value. The knowledge of (Kyusho) pressure points in a law enforcement agency makes the need of violent and heavy force techniques less. That is of course good for the citizen that is being subjected to the force. A suspect that is being detained or arrested shouldn’t be hurt by the officers, if possible. When the officer goes to home after work he or she will feel a lot better if no one has been hurt or unnecessary rough treated due to the lack of good techniques.
Pressure points are the knowledge that will make law enforcement agencies a lot safer for both parties. They are easy to learn and to integrate into already existing systems. The officer doesn’t need to learn new techniques; they just need to understand the mechanisms of the body and the techniques a little bit more. The nerves are under the skin, and the reactions when pressure is applied to them are mostly predictable since many of the points activate reflex reactions that can be studied. There is nothing strange about pressure points; it is plain knowledge of body functions and especially about the nervous system.
I can recommend the use of (Kyusho) pressure points for all law enforcement personnel. I will also recommend that you always use a certified instructor when implementing the knowledge into an official system.

As an unarmed tactical law enforcement instructor for the past 24 years, I have found the skills taught by Mr. Pantazi and Kyusho International to be the most useful and effective in real life situations. Mr. Pantazi's organized approach is both practical and realistic and is far superior than any other system I have ever trained in. Kyusho has been a part of my curriculum for years and will continue to be so.

Name and Picture witheld for security reasons.
As a United States Federal Air Marshal, I have been trained in a variety of different self-defense styles that have given me the proper tools to defend myself as well as my country. While these self-defense styles may vary in execution and method, they all share a similar technique and principal. Kyusho is one of the core foundations that the Federal Air Marshal agency has used to help better equip their agents to be prepared to defend themselves against any style of attack. Kyusho uses simplistic yet highly effective techniques to disarm, restrain, prevent or stop an individual from completing any type of physical assault. With the basic understanding and use of Kyusho I am able to not only apply the methods to potential life-threatening situations, but also incorporate the underlying fundamental movements in any other type of self-defense technique I may use.
I have had many qualified and experienced instructors train me in an assortment of martial art and self-defense styles; however none have been able to communicate, instruct and deliver their knowledge like Evan Pantazi. I have been fortunate enough to work with Evan Pantazi in a personal and individual setting and his understanding and application of Kyusho is as effective and applicable as any instruction I have received. His ability to tailor Kyusho’s methods to suit that of the small and unique environment of an aircraft is only one example of how effective and relative Evan’s principals are to my job description. Evan has given me a new and dynamic way to fight and defend myself in any situation.
|Lisbon - Portugal|
Officer - Unidade Operacional da Guarda Nacional Republicana (special anti-riot unit)
Self Defense Instructor
Despite my own personal experience in Martial Arts, for many years I have researched and searched for self-defense systems that could be adapted to my professional situation of being a Law Enforcement Agent.
All techniques, theories and strategies I contacted in the many traditional martial arts I experienced during my search were simply not compatible with the limits of intervention imposed by the Portuguese laws.
In the firm belief of finally having found an approach that could be adapted to these strict restraints imposed by my activity, I met Evan Pantazi for the first time in Barcelona at a Law Enforcement Seminar.
After my years of pursuit, I understood then that all the questions I had and were never answered were systematically being addressed in an intuitive and simple way by the program that was being presented.
A program that introduced a level of control that permitted me to maintain complete restraint with little effort, and do so without compromising the physical integrity of the offender.
As I introduced pressure points (Kyusho) in my teaching activity at the Unidade Operacional da Guarda Nacional Republicana (special anti-riot unit) I was formally invited to be involved in the development of an improved and common self defense system for several agencies.
Several sessions presenting Kyusho Tactical Control Program (KTCP) have also been held at The Portuguese Military Police Unit.
Trained officials in the use of KTCP in a riot setting are leading the special anti-riot unit of the Military Police stationed presently in Kosovo.
It is my firm belief that the KTCP from Kyusho International will be in few years the mandatory tool for law enforcement agents across the world.

I have been using Kyusho on the street for over 10 years, with good results. The Pressure Point Fighting tactics used for combat have been tweaked by Kyusho Instructors and practitioners to be utilized for Law Enforcement. These Kyusho techniques are applied with minimal effort and have a low propensity for injury to your suspect. The Goal of any officer who finds themselves in a violent confrontation is to control the suspect. These techniques give the officer an edge while attempting to accomplish this goal.
The techniques and tactics that will be covered in this book are simple, sound and street tested. They can be integrated into your existing tactics and skills, so you won’t have to learn a whole new fighting system, if you are a boxer, martial artist, wrestler or just a brawler you can quickly pick up the information and put it in your bag of tricks so to speak.
About 8 years ago I began to teach Kyusho for L.E. to cadets (New Officers) while they were attending the Police Academy; over 500 cadets have been exposed to this training. I have had very good feedback from these officers who have gained the desired control of suspects using Kyusho.
I have also instructed several hundreds of veteran officers during in service training, along with Military servicemen preparing to deploy to the middle east, after each class I am consistently approached by students who express their excitement about these techniques, saying that they are simple to apply, easy to understand and will be easy to retain.
My personal experience is one of surprise and excitement about Kyusho and the techniques taught by Expert instructors of Kyusho. I remember attending a Law Enforcement Class 15 or so years ago that advertised Pressure Point Control, I had a martial arts background and when I left the class I was less than impressed. I had a soured impression that pressure points were not very valuable to L.E., boy was I proven wrong, a few years later when I met Expert instructors Pantazi and, Corn, during a Kyusho Seminar. I walked out of this class surprised and excited about pressure point combat. I was on a mission; I was going to work on and test these tactics on the street. So here we are several years later and they have been put to the test. Like I said earlier I have had good results. One of the myths in L.E. is that hand to hand tactics or fighting is always effective, and just like the TV Cops we always are able to toss bad guys around like rag dolls, apply handcuffs with little effort and always get our man.
Well I’m here to tell you that no tactic or technique works 100% of the time and fighting a drug crazed suspect that is covered in sweat and blood is not a walk in the park. We don’t always get our man and some really good officers are injured and sometimes killed. That’s the reality of the world we live in, however if officers can utilize Kyusho to give them an edge, a few extra seconds or create some distance then maybe we have accomplished what we intended. Do the job, and go home at the end of the day to our loved ones.

When police officers arrest someone they transport them to an intake area of a jail. The individuals who are being put in custody of the corrections officers at that point often become violent because they have been arrested and may be high on drugs and drunk. The booking area is not a happy place for arrestees. They have lost their freedom, the "cops" are now taking their property and clothing, and the reality of the situation is starting to sink in. This is the point when I have had the most fights in my career as a working corrections officer.
Over the years I have studied a few martial arts. The sad truth is that many modern arts are taught more on the art side than the martial part. PPCT even has limits. Eventually I began learning about this crazy way to combine pressure points beyond just hit and run strikes of PPCT which may not always work. Kyusho in law enforcement and corrections goes beyond trying to inflict pain on people who can't feel anything. It manipulates the nervous system of your opponent to control the situation or even knock the person out with little to know effort. (Just because they don't feel pain in one spot doesn't mean the rest of their nervous system is out of order) I've fought crack heads, meth heads, and drunks using Kyusho to effectively end altercations. It's easy to learn, it's fun, but most importantly IT WORKS - PERIOD.

When your job consists of arresting people on a daily basis, you quickly learn that standard control techniques and defensive tactics are just not adequate. I discovered years ago, that learning Kyusho techniques was the perfect addition to the skills that I already had. There is no magic to Kyusho, it is just using knowledge of basic human physiology and applying some fairly simple concepts. I am by no stretch of the imagination, an advanced Kyusho practitioner. I’ve learned some pressure points and Kyusho concepts along the way and I have consistently used them in the course of my duties. The beauty of Kyusho is that you don’t necessarily have to change what you are already doing, but just gain some knowledge of how to make what you already do, work better.
Kyusho has a number of advantages that can be capitalized on in many different situations. From highly resistant, combative subjects to passively resistant people. In law enforcement, we all have to keep in mind the use of force continuum that is dictated to us by our individual departments and the law. The last thing an officer wants to do is go higher on the use of force continuum than the situation warrants. This opens up the individual officer and the department to an excessive force lawsuit. Remember, use of force may be justified in a particular situation, but leaving visible injuries on an individual rarely works in an officer’s favor. In many cases, Kyusho techniques can be applied to momentarily disable an individual long enough to gain control of the subject. Best of all, you are far less likely to cause visible injuries, thereby helping to avoid excessive force complaints. Subduing a passively resistant person can often have the appearance of excessive force because the subject is not actively fighting back or resisting. This is perhaps the most common situation I’ve encountered over the years. By applying some basic Kyusho techniques, an officer can get a passively resistant person handcuffed without escalating the level of force above what is needed.
Learning any martial art in addition to your present skill set is certainly beneficial, however, I’ve found Kyusho to be the most practical to apply in a law enforcement setting. It doesn’t take years to master and ultimately, you use what works best for you. I have also found Kyusho useful while engaged in private executive protection assignments. Typically, the techniques used are quite different since your main goal is protecting your principal and not apprehending an individual, however the concepts are still applicable. By learning Kyusho, you are educating yourself and becoming a better, safer, more humane law enforcement officer, and you just might avoid a few lawsuits along the way.
