KFM seeks Personal Growth through the development of the Instinct. The movements, concepts, and principles used in Keysi follow universal laws that are not limited by any System or Style. Keysi develops Mind and Body, merging them together into a Sole Principle, providing the person with the necessary Attributes to shape and define a way of life centered on personal growth.
If there is something that differs markedly Keysi by Justo Dieguez from any martial art, it is its Principles, which educate us through Values and they give us skills for Expression and Self-Realisation in Emotions/Mind/Body.
Keysi Fighting Method
KFM makes use of multiple attacking ranges, with or without weapons. The KFM trademark is the thinking man (Pensador) and thinking man attack (pensataq), which makes use of a tight defensive shape to protect the most precious part of the body, the head, and smashes and opens up the opponent for the finish using all ranges of strikes – punches, hammer fists, kicks, knees, head butts, and the sharp elbows, all at high, middle and low lines on the opponent. Unlike many martial arts, KFM tends to get into extreme close quarters when in combat. From the Pensador defense, a variety of counter attacks to, targets (such as the biceps, kidneys or solar plexus) are often launched. KFM also relies on understanding how people typically move or attack in a fight so that when striking, the opponent’s body moves to expose further targets.
