Kung Fu Chi Internal Power Development in Martial Arts
A Strong Healthy body 
to Prevent Illness

The main aim of Kung Fu Chi Internal Power Development in Chinese Martial Arts is to build a strong healthy body that can prevent and fight off illness.

Learning our Chinese martial arts involve more than just the fighting or self defence aspect of the art. It includes learning the mental attitude necessary to obtain, and maintain, a healthy and happy life.

There are also living and health skills that you need to learn. Because training enhances your personal growth, your martial arts school's teaching curriculum must include these skills.

“The secret to developing Chi internal power consist of special breathing techniques, mental focusing, pressure points that heal, specific ways of exercising the body, applying the principles of Tao in our daily life plus living in harmony with the philosophy of Nature” says our Dai Sifu, Golden Lion Academy Dim Mak World Grandmaster Dr Pier Tsui-Po.

When was the last time your instructor explained to you how the principles of your art is used outside training? If they did, then did you take any notice of what was taught? Whatever the case, you must seriously study the "Way" if you are to get the most out of your training.

The "Way" is a way of living, thinking and being. Ancient Taoist practitioners, who were the very early practitioners of martial arts such as kung fu, tai chi and dao yin, discovered that the wisdom of the martial art forms the basis for life, living, health, fitness and personal growth. It also includes the ability to communicate with other people. As you know, communication is not done verbally; Chi energy is also used in communication.

There has always been a link between self healing and kung fu. Apart from having developed and refined the ancient wisdoms, the mental skills, attitudes and nutrition necessary for a strong and healthy body, the martial Taoists also developed a series of internal exercises that specifically build Chi power so that you can prevent illness, build a strong mind and body, and promote balance and harmony of mind, body, emotions and spirit.

A series of Taoist mind and body exercises as well as the ancient Taoist healing exercise of Dao Yin Chi Kung have been used in both kung fu and the healing arts. These internal exercises specifically use a selection of vital pressure points on the body that are known to influence health and healing. They promote good physical, mental and emotional health.

How to increase your Longevity, Internal Power and Boost your Immune system

This is a practical course where you learn The Kung Fu Version of the Eight Brocades, an ancient Chi cultivation technique that help heal the body, prevent illness and boost your immune system while activating special pressure points. These exercises have been practised for over 1,000 years by Chinese martial arts practitioners.

Keep in mind that this Eight Brocade system as taught by Dr Tsui-Po is MORE THAN the basic Eight Brocades that are commonly taught. This set focuses on self healing, loosening muscles and sinews and building internal strength in order to increase your longevity, build internal power and boot your immune system.

The exercises move Chi and blood throughout the 14 main meridians so you’ll learn how to effectively move Chi through these meridians; and you'll learn the special techniques that activate these healing points. You’ll learn how these vital points work, where they are on the body and how to activate their healing potential.

Once you’ve learnt this module, you’ll confidently be able to continue practising the techniques at home, everyday if you wish. And you’ll also be able to teach it to your family and friends to help them improve their health.

Resuscitation techniques and Pressure Point Healing for martial arts injuries

In this course you’ll learn powerful healing techniques for injuries or illness occurred as a result of combat, sporting activities or during everyday living. You’ll also learn secret martial arts resuscitation techniques that you can use to help injured students or colleagues; you’ll also learn specific pressure points and techniques that heal injuries and illness.

One of the features of this topic is that Dr Tsui-Po will hand out to you personally various herbal prescriptions that you can purchase from a Chinese herbalist in your area. In the prescriptions, he will detail the herbal formulas that you’ll learn; he will teach you how to prepare the herbs; how and when to use them on yourself, your students, family and friends.

If you do not recover quickly from injuries, if you are worried about being injured on a pressure point, or if you are unsure about what to do if one of your students or friends become injured or feels unwell in class, then you should attend this course. It is ideal for instructors, senior students and beginners.
