If you think the martial arts are about fighting, you have the wrong idea. They are about discovering the truth of you, they are about sculpting the energy of your body, they are about exploring your true potential. This bit of writing is a simple breakdown of how chi energy progresses in the Martial Arts. Check the video, it proves chi power, and then consider the rest of this article.
I should say, before we begin, that this is idealized. It happens as I say it happens if the art(s) you are studying have not been overly corrupted. Unfortunately, most arts have been corrupted, and only a study of Matrixing will revert them to their true potential.
We begin with Karate because it is simple, and because, having been the first martial art to hit it big in the US of A, and many parts of the world, Karate styles form an underpinning or basis for most other arts, even should they be overly different in their constitution. The cultures of the US and the world, you see, have gravitated to it, and many people have an underlying philosophy of Karate imbedded in their thought when they study other martial arts.
Karate creates explosive power. This is hard chi that is common to kenpo, taekwondo, and any art which has striking and blocking in it. Learn the explosive power of Karate and this will enhance the energy of any other art.
Once one has ‘awakened’ to the potentials of energy through Karate, there are many potential paths to follow. This writer prefers the path of Shaolin, for that art provides a ‘rolling chi energy’ type of power. However, if one hasn’t become competent in Explosive Power, it can take many years, perhaps even decades, to properly develop this power.
After Shaolin Kung Fu one might consider a study of a Wudan style art such as Pa Kua Chang. This is a more drawn out variety of chi power, and the energy doesn’t just travel up and down the legs, it spirals through the limbs. Again, most systems have become too corrupted to impart this efficiently (without many years of study, and even then there are problems), and one should make sure they have suspended chi power and rolling power from Karate first, and Shaolin second.
Finally (though this is a limited list I present) would be a study of Tai Chi Chuan. This is suspended energy, and itt is a superior form of energy in a million ways. I have met many martial artists, however, who have lacked competence simply because theydidn’t understand the early types of martial arts power mentioned in this article.
In closing, the arts are not separate, they are merely different slices of the same pie. One needs to study the whole pie if they wish to learn more than a slice. Further one should study Matrixing Technologies if they wish to make heads and tails of the whole thing.
