Mudras & Chakras, Holy Way.

... had insights, but i am not expert as of yet.

i think that Mudras are Holy Gestures, i think that Martial Arts also have Mudras ... powerful Forms & Strikes, Holiness is not attained during one day.

i think that Chakras are energy centers or nervous centers in a living beings ... i think these can be also Holy.

... had insights that it's a Powerful way to fight using these methods, that i should develop these methods as far as my priorities allow, for they are underestimated by most.

(not only Atemi/Ki on Energy Centers, but also the efficiency of my own body's energy use during the combat).


Other ideas to consider: Atemi or Ki?, Qigong, Long Fights, Sources of Martial Arts Philosophy, ...




Atemi or Ki?

... i think both.

i understand Atemi as ability to strike precisely at a vulnerable point, while ki is focus on power of the strike.

used together they are a powerful & a quick way of defeating human opponent, with or without harming, but both require a lot of skill & training.

i also think that for someone with 2nd Dan aspirations, such as i ... it's worthwhile to focus more on Atemi over Ki.

... for Atemi is also Ki.

... i've experienced a truth & power of these words during one of Jiu-Jutsu lessons i had, when Sensei struck lightly at a point on my neck, i lost consciousness (without falling to ground) for a short while.

it's a very clear truth for me that even a slight touch can turn someone unconscious, rendering him or her unable to fight.

i got 'a homework' from this Sensei to study biological anatomy of a human being, as a part of Martial Arts practice ... i wish i had more time & focus for that, as far as my priorities allow.

i think i should study chakras (energy centers, nervous centers) mostly, got intuition that it's my way anyway.

i think both Atemi & Ki fall well with Karate Way, nevertheless.

i think both Atemi & Ki fall well within the style i am trying to develop anyway, as well.

Is Boxing a Martial Art?

i think everything can be an Art, Boxing included.

... Boxing, Judo, Wrestling, any of the sports.

of Martial type, in this case, as well.
