Pegging Your Stance Is One Secret Of Chi Power in Classical Karate Kata

In these days of bash ’em and trash ’em MMA fighting, many people lose out on the secrets of Classical Karate Forms. And, not to be discriminatory, on the secrets of Kung Fu forms, and taekwondo and Kenpo and…so on. Mind you, I find nothing wrong with good self defense, but I think Martial knowledge is of more value in the long run.

Check out the video, then I’ll give you a great technique for creating chi power through classical Karate Training.

Let’s consider the notion of how to peg the stance. You won’t find much information discussed concerning this practice, but it leads to a coordinated body, harder strikes, and a rather interesting and useful waveform of energy through the body. There are several places in the classical Kata which illustrate this technique.

Basic Pegging of the Stance is one of the hallmarks in Pinan Three, which is also called Heian Three. This is found in the first move, where one places his feet together, leans forward at the waist, and executes simultaneous low and middle blocks. There is a balance to be found in this movement, and an introduction to running chi energy down the legs and into the earth.

The discipline of this concept evolves slowly through the kata of classical Karate, and in other arts. In the form called Pinan Five (Heian Five), one jumps and lands in a cross legged stance (Kosa Dachi). In this move one is deliberately dropping weight deep into the ground, and getting a sizable return of energy from the earth.

This movement occurs again, but with a quick step instead of a jump, in Bot sai (Passai). This simple step is forward motion brought to a sudden halt by sending roots down the leg and into the ground. The forward motion, when stopped in such abrupt manner, actually sends a wave of energy (chi or ki) up the body and into the braced block.

The last example of this concept of pegging is found in the form Um Be (Empi…the flying swallow). This time the concept consists of stepping forward and sinking the weight through the cross legged stance into the ground. In this Kata the movement is designed very specifically for fighting.

There are other examples of this sinking of the weight through pegging, but the ones I have given here provide a sequence throughout the forms of the Martial Disciplines. And, the fact is that one should learn to sink the weight in all stances. This is quite crucial to learning the True Martial Art.

To conclude, let me again say that I have no bone to pick with the MMA fighting methods. However, most people are into the art for more than just being able to beat somebody to a pulp. Indeed, discovering and manipulating the intrinsic energies of the body, and learning other such secrets through classical Karate Kata, gives a peace of mind that is experienced through no other martial way in the world.

Revealing the Three Levels of Martial Arts Secrets

Everybody wants to know the secrets of the martial arts. There’s got to be martial arts secrets underneath all that punching and kicking, right? Well, it may be tough to take, but this article is going to point you in the direction of those hidden gems that only the mightiest of the martial arts masters know.

One out of a thousand people who start the martial arts get a black belt. This is a sad truth, and does not speak highly of the various arts, and especially of their teachers. So only one in a thousand people have penetrated their art and found the truth of the various taekwondo secrets and karate secrets.

Out of the thousand people who reach black belt, only one is a real black belt. A real black belt (one in a million) is one who has ‘matured,’ which is the actual meaning of the word ‘Dan,’ which is the oriental word for levels of black belt. To mature means to give up the desire to fight, to stop being childish, to take responsibility for one’s actions, and this is the indication that somebody actually understands the first level of mystery in the various types of martial arts.

Now, the plot thickens, for out of the people who learn the hard arts to this high level, only one out of a thousand will study another art to the point of understanding that arts mysteries! This is the second level: wudan kung fu secrets and aikido secrets. That’s one in a billion who will actually study to the point of understanding both the hard and the soft sides of the martial arts!

Now, of those billion people, only one in a thousand–that’s right, one in a trillion–will understand the truth of art. This means overcoming the slant and taint of art and style and such and actually seeing the true physics of the martial arts. The true physics start with such laws as ‘For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, but they evolve into ‘For every action there is a source point.’

Interestingly, one would think that Wudan based arts, or Aikido, or that ilk, would provide second level physics. Unfortunately, though one does see isolated incidents, the arts themselves are biased and slanted. Just as a person who thinks he is the only one…isn’t, so do arts which represent themselves as the only one…aren’t.

Interestingly, and here is the crux of the problem, of the few people who do become capable, and who do manifest the second level of physics, none understand it. They teach through mysticism, you see, and do not offer concrete science for explaining what they are doing and why. For there to be a true art there must be a science, a system backed up by a method which works every time, and which leads one through and to solid manifestation of the second level of physics.

So one in a thousand actual learns an art, and one in a million actually becomes an artist, and one in a billion actually can do something which is mystical, which means they can do something which follows certain rules, but they have no idea what the rules are. And only one in a trillion has penetrated through to the third level of martial arts secrets. And if you want the secrets, study one art until you understand it, complement it with a second art until you understand it, then find the person who understands the science behind what you are doing, that is the only and true way to find out those fabulous martial arts secrets.
