Energy pathways and nerve points in martial arts II

Energy pathways and nerve points in martial arts II

flower With another article on the energy and nerve points, I would like to show two pages for the application and the area of application.

In order to know and better understand the effects of activating a nerve point, both sides should be considered and studied.

Martial arts masters used to be mostly healers and healers also mostly masters of martial arts, because they dealt intensively with the reactions of applications to the human body. This knowledge was also very important for maintaining combat readiness. The human body always tries to find a good balance between Um (Chin. Jin) and Yang.

The meridians (Gyong Nak) are energy channels that run through our whole body. They are interconnected and form a complex network. Meridians move our life energy (Ki) and supply our body with it. There are points (Hyol) on these energy tracks that are sensitive to different levels. Every time one acts on such an energy point, different reactions are brought about, also on other energy paths.

There are points that accelerate, slow down, fill or empty energy. If the balance of Um and Yang in the human body is disturbed by an action, the body tries to balance it by a reaction. The energy balance in the body tries to adapt.

This is exactly what you can use for combat or health. The reactions can be very different depending on the intensity! The human body always tries to find a good balance between Um and Yang.

umyang There are fourteen major meridians. A solar meridian on the back of the body, a shadow meridian on the front of the body and twelve organ meridians that are assigned to an organ or organ system. These are symmetrical on the right and left side of the body. They are divided into six yang and six um meridians.

There is a simple method to assign the meridians in Um and Yang meridians. Let us imagine a farmer who is stooped during the rice harvest. The meridians facing the sun are yang meridians (back, outer and back sides of the arms and legs). The shaded areas protected from the sun are um meridians (middle chest / abdomen, inside of the arms and legs.

In the following application example, I selected the Heart 3 nerve point (So Hae). Please exercise caution when practicing and trying out, ideally only under the guidance of an experienced master, as this point has a strong effect on the cardiovascular system! People who have health problems should be very careful here.

I wish you much success in trying it out.
