put less emphasis on solo training


Perhaps this would resolve the problem of badly calloused hands.

Dr. Kelly:

Welcome to the forums. Although I believe that basic pressure point strikes are effective, I am very skeptical of many of the kyusho multiple touch strikes, not involving one of Bruce Siddle's well known points.

I don't want to be told to "just let someone try it out on you" in order to validate a kyusho strike, since I'm very susceptible to suggestion.

Bill Glasheen and J.D. Morenski did an excellent job testing "Empty Energy" with a double blind test conducted at our annual SummerFest (Camp). This year I am encouraging Bill to try and put together a similar type of test for Kyusho. This will be more difficult, but Bill and I have been working on something that might work.

Is there any possibility that you can join us on Cape Cod for a couple days and work with us on this test? (Aug 9-11)

Sensei Mattson,
I would be honored to be involved. I am not sure about my responsibilities at the hospital though. I will check the dates and get back to you.


Where can I find the empty energy test? I would be really interested in reading it.

Dr Kelly,
I found the references on vagal arrest useful. Thank you.

I too would be interested in reading about the empty force test. Where can I find it.

I received Dr. Kelly's book last night; I'll comment soon.

After having reviewed the book for about an hour in the post office, I do have some ideas about a test or two. Nothing ambitious...just a demonstration of physical process. We shall see. Image

I will reserve my commentary on the book for a new thread. This one's reaching critical mass.
