Does It Hurt When I Do This?


Let me tell you something. I don't bruise too easily. You guys know after years of Wrestling, Football, Karate, Jujutsu and Judo- you develop resistance to those types of things. Well at least I That's what I thought?Every time I work out with Carl Cestari, I am left with reminders of our time together. I have to tell you, the day after filming the Combat Jujutsu Series I had bits and pieces bruised or missing!!!

One time in particular, when Carl was on the bottom (Soon to be released CJ3 How to Build a Solid Ground Defense) and he put his thumb in my hip to create an opening. Now at the time, it hurt, so I moved. That created the little opening that Mr. Cestari wanted to move to a more advantageous position. H proceeded to take me apart with a series of strikes, locks and whatever he felt like doing. The next morning as I was getting dressed, realizing how sore I was, I noticed a quarter size bruise on my hip!

I have known and Studied with Carl Cestari since 1989. Every time he puts his hands on me it you can anticipate the pain that's about to be delivered. Next time you watch the Combat Jujutsu Series, the grunts and groans are FOR Real. We didn't rehearse that; Hell, We didn't rehearse anything. You are seeing real reactions from Real Trained Techniques! When Carl wanted me to move- he MADE me move.

When we were shooting CJ2, And he was working the pressure points in my head, neck and face- I moved, and to be honest- you start to get pissed off- Man, the pain was just annoying and my instinct was to fight back. The next thing I knew, I was in a shoulder or neck dislocation or he was raining Edge of hand Blows on my collar bones, neck and head- Oh well?

The trick to developing that kind of power and instinct is: there is no "trick", Carl Trains the stuff- a lot. Grip training, hitting the training dummies and after the hundreds of thousands of repetitions Your body Discovers How to deliver the indeed strike with Maximum Efficiency. Every, muscle and fiber In your body is set to deliver its payload. That's why when some one like Carl puts his hands on you (so far I have only experienced 2 people that can do this- Carl Cestari Sensei and Yoshisada Yonezuka Sensei) you get begin to feel the pain potential because their muscles are already moving toward their intended purpose. The first time Yonezuka Sensei demonstrated some ground technique on me - when he positioned himself on top of me - his shins felt like someone placed 2 cinder blocks on edge on each of my legs; and we hadn't even started Yet! Not Bad for a man in his late 60's!

In the Combat Jujutsu series Carl Demonstrates some of these Body conditioning techniques- The "lead pipe" Shin conditioning is something to see. www.combatjujutsusecrets.com To learn more about Yonezuka Sensei Check out:
