How to Attain Effortless Martial Arts Technique through Neutronics
How to strike with no effort, how to throw without using muscles, these are hallmarks of the highest level of art, but how does one do them?
Back about 1974, when I was undergoing some rather profound realizations, one of the things I realized was that the universe is backwards.
I was involved in building power. Raw, crackling, tan tien exploding, face smacking power. With a capital P.
Then I watched my instructor, who was the most powerful person I have known.
No raw surge of energy from him.
No tan tien exposion.
No muscular exertion.
Yet his strikes would drop you with a touch.
Not a punch, but a mere touch.
So what was he doing?
He was creating silence, and here is the key.
The beginner, young and dumb and full of stuff, builds power.
But power is an illusion, it is temporary, it is something insecure people chase.
Real power depends on building space. Stillness within. Stillness without. A context that is the true power.
Which is there more of, suns or space?
The answer is that a candle in a coal mine is brighter than then sun at noon.
So I began going backwards, figuring out how not to make my punch stronger, but to make the silence around my punch greater.
This is a very interesting concept, and one that is TOTALLY ignored by today’s martial artists.
The obsession with tournaments, or belts, or money, and telling the student to punch harder, punch harder.
Where is the zen? Where is the ‘empty’ in Empty Hands?
So here is the point: the human body is a machine. On the beginning levels of the martial arts you overwhelm the machine by impacting upon it. On the advanced levels you merely unbalance the energy in it.
Unbalance, with a touch, to throw.
Or touch with a strike so soft that the idea of the strike, not the weight of the muscle bound arm, but the concept of being struck, goes between the two machines and ‘infects’ the target body.
This is how you get past the muscle theories currently infecting todays martial arts, and develop the true martial arts which require less and less effort, and accomplish more and more effect.
