The Power of Internal Martial Arts and Chi: Combat and Energy Secrets of Ba Gua, Tai Chi and Hsing-I

The Power of Internal Martial Arts and Chi: Combat and Energy Secrets of Ba Gua, Tai Chi and Hsing-I

Originally published in 1998, this book has become a martial arts classic. It provides detailed descriptions of the three main internal martial arts—tai chi (taiji), hsing-i (xingyi) and ba gua (pakua)—and their sub-styles, as well as how they differ from each other and from such external arts as karate, tae kwon do and judo. Each internal martial art is analyzed in terms of its fighting strategies and applications. This revised edition includes 50 pages of additional material including a new chapter on martial arts and spirituality.This was the first book to provide in-depth information to Westerners about nei gung (neijiaquan), the sophisticated Taoist system developed in ancient China for working with chi in the body, mind and spirit. Chi helps build relaxed speed and power without the use of muscular tension or adrenaline surges. This gives many internal martial artists a powerful edge over counterparts trained in external martial arts. The book provides vivid details about Frantzis’ personal training odyssey in the martial arts, including fascinating profiles of such renowned martial artists as Morehei Ueshiba, founder of Aikido; ba gua master Wang Shu Jin, who emanated chi so powerfully that on cold days his students could warm their hands by standing near him; and Li...

The Key to the Internal Arts: The power of consciousness

The Key to the Internal Arts: The power of consciousness

Update version September 3, 2017 (Fixed grammar, changed the title)Internal martial/energy arts have been studied for centuries by many people. Yet, most of them have not found the key as it has been kept secret. Author, Jinho Lee, trained in the external martial arts for fifteen years, but did not find the key. After switching his training from external to internal martial arts, he learned much more than martial arts skills from them. Wisdom and enlightenment awaited him at the end of the training. He came to Western society in 2008 and found that many people had misconceptions about martial arts. Most people could not accept the traditional way, as businessmen had ruined it. Modern people are familiar with the commercial dojo system, so it is hard to make the traditional method of training appeal to them. This book shows how the martial/energy arts market in Western society appears from the view of a person who has trained in the internal arts in Asia in the traditional way. The internal arts system sounds as if it goes against common sense. It does not use the general muscles to create power. You should connect to the earth and the heaven, and then use their power. What you need to do is to make your body a carrier. Then, you will be able to transmit the power to your opponent...

Internal Martial Arts Nei-gong: Cultivating Your Inner Energy to Raise Your Martial Arts to the Next Level

Internal Martial Arts Nei-gong: Cultivating Your Inner Energy to Raise Your Martial Arts to the Next Level

In many old martial arts films you often see a master capable of extraordinary supernormal feats such as being able to move with the speed of wind, throw incredibly heavy objects, destroy them with a strike, stride over water, or even fly through the air. Are such things possible? The Chinese Taoists say "yes" if the master practiced special exercises to cultivate their inner energy, or yang chi (qi). These practices to cultivate inner power are called nei-gong, or the internal martial arts, and are related to the mastery of the kundalini energies cited in Indian yogic and Buddhist literature, which also explains the various superpowers that become possible with its cultivation. Many people today want to be able to attain such supernormal skills, or they simply want to understand why and how these skills were cultivated so they might be duplicated as best possible. Some practitioners of Tai Chi Chuan, Hsing-Yi, Ba Gua Zhang, Five Animals, Aikido, Karate, Judo, Northern Shaolin, and other Kung Fu Wushu traditions have alternatively damaged their bodies from their practice, or have reached a training plateau, and want some sure methods to break their current limits and bring their martial arts skills to the next level. This book explains the major practices on how to properly c...

The Power of Internal Martial Arts: Combat Secrets of Ba Gua, Tai Chi, and Hsing-I

The Power of Internal Martial Arts: Combat Secrets of Ba Gua, Tai Chi, and Hsing-I

This book's primary focus is on the detailed descriptions of the three main internal boxing methods (Hsing I, Ba Gua, and Tai Chi), as well as many substyles. In-depth comparisons and analyses of the different arts in regard to their methods of movement, principles and philosophies, use of force and energy, body mechanics, and some practical applications, are also described. Frantzis also includes "Personal Odyssey" sections where he recounts many of his interesting encounters with famous martial arts masters. This feature recalls Robert W. Smith's Chinese Boxing: Masters and Methods, from a previous generation of martial arts books. To make this book as accessible to beginners as possible, there are five appendices covering the different styles of tai chi (such as Yang, Chen, Wu, Tung, Hou, and Sun), a history of Ba Gua, energy anatomy of the human body, a summary of Mr. Frantzis's training and lineage, a chapter on Chinese terminology and transliteration, and an extensive glossary.

Ancient Secrets, Modern Tactics: Pure Internal Power for Fighting

Ancient Secrets, Modern Tactics: Pure Internal Power for Fighting

They say there are no secrets. But there are. The hard part is getting somebody to teach them to you. And then the harder part still is figuring out what is being communicated to you. And once you have the information, what do you do with it? How would you fight with Internal Martial Arts? We will discusses this. First, the secrets. 1. Body Sponsorship. 2. Zhong Ding Jing. 3. Pure Internal Power. 4. Gravity Power. 5. Shi. And then we'll look at some examples of people who have these skills. But then we'll do something that is probably unique. We will discuss how you might apply these principles in a modern fighting context. With this book I hope to present an argument for the validity of Internal Martial Arts beyond "that slow stuff old people do," and to bring this series of arts into this century.
