I was curious if anyone who practices Kiaijitsu, or a pressure point art, could suggest a good book or video to help me start working on my chi.
What do you want to work or your chi for, health (worthwhile) or self defense (up for debate as to its effectiveness)??????
Well Jwing Ming Yang has to points in his book called Mingmen.I remember having a very hard time with it. Maybe I was just too young then to understand. If I still knew where that book was, I'd dig it out and try it again and see what I can do.
I don't know Kyusho is Japanese but an Acupunture book will mostly have the names in Chinese or English translation.on Kyusho a great deal. One of the students asked if he should learn japanese words or chinese words to get a better understanding, and the answer was a resounding 'chinese'.
Well, both. And when I say that, I mean that:
1) Even if its all nonsense, the meditative and kinesiological benefits will have a positive impact on my mental and physical self (respectively), thereby allowing me a better bill of health, as well as the mental acuity and reasonability that would allow me to defend myself more effectively.
2) If there is something to TCM (which I believe there is), the increase in my Qi flow will bring about greater strength, health, mental acuity, and physical durability that will likewise allow me to defend myself more effectively.
