    Has anyone any info on this guy? Are his credentials genuine? Like myself he studied kyusho jitsu, but he seems to be the founder of countless federations/online clubs/projects etc. That all appear to sell his vast array of ebooks. Just curious. I did download a free sample book which I quickly glanced through from one of his many websites, pretty basic but genuine information regarding pressure points.

    He wrote a book on how to do "no touch knockouts". Any dude who tells you that you can throw chi balls is a fake.

    Thought he seemed a fake, I've been doing kyusho jitsu for a few years, great art but gets a bad wrap because of guys like this talking bullshido about throwing chi and empty forces. Also, he has so many ebooks out, all on marked down prices, thats the first no touch one I've seen. Thanks micheal

    Open link and print. Paper is good for lining the bottom of bird cages, training puppies for house breaking and if needed, a rough wipe of your butt if you run out of the good stuff.

    No help for self defense. Sorry, it is what it is.

    Move to YMAS or merge?

    It is next to useless in self defence, if used alone, but after 20 plus years of studying various martial arts including kyusho, I found it can help to control an attacker alongside joint locks, I wouldn't rely on knocking someone out using pressure points in a self defence situation. And dillman is the reason for the majority of bad press.

    I don't get why you would want to spent time learning something that doesn't work on its own. If you have to spend time learning something else just so you sprinkle in a dash, that seems very inefficient.

    Yet Art Mason has a photo of him with Dillman on his site.
