Aikido Success Blueprint
Another reason many Wing Chun practitioners are unfamiliar with the internal aspect of their art is the fact that Wing Chun can be an effective fighting system without learning the difficult internal side. Aikido is similar in this regard. Many law enforcement officers learn Aikido techniques to help them control and subdue a difficult individual. These techniques work effectively, but possess only a small portion of the true power they can manifest when learned with the internal side of Aikido. One only has to watch footage of the great Founder of Aikido, O'Sensai Uyeshiba demonstrating his skills to see the difference between Aikido done with chi (ki) energy and the Aikido given to law enforcement as techniques. The same is true with Wing Chun. Its techniques work because they are scientific principle centered motions designed to be efficient and effective. Even done poorly Wing Chun is more than a match for many other Martial systems. But when Wing Chun is performed with its full...
Graham Horwood first started martial arts in 1963 with Judo and Wado Ryu Karate, under the auspices of Tatsui Suzuki. In 1969 he studied Aikido and Tai Chi Chuan, then Hung Gar. In 1977 Graham began his relationship with Master Chu King Hung, 3rd adopted son of Yang Shou Cheung. Yang Shou Cheung was the eldest son of Yang Cheng Fu. Master Chu is considered to be the world's leading authority on Family Yang Style Tai Chi. Graham spent 10 years practicing and teaching with Master Chu, who informed him that he was the first of his students to understand the internal principles of Tai Chi. He also learnt Hsing I and Pa Qua with Master Chu and Grand Master Hon Sing Wun.
Aikido, Way of Harmonious Energy the most popular soft martial art practiced as such. Aikido, Way of Harmonious Energy the most popular soft martial art practiced as such. Without a doubt, the forms of taiji are the most widely practiced aspect of any martial art in the world today, although the vast majority of its practitioners do them as a qigong (qi exercise), not as a martial art. When it comes to an internal martial art being learned fully as such, aikido is undoubtedly the leader. The form, the set movements that immediately come to mind when one thinks of Taiji, are only one aspect of Taiji as a martial art. Full training in a taiji style also includes qigong practice, push-hands training (two-person exercises), teaching of martial applications and or sparring, and weapons forms (Broad sword, taiji sword, staff, etc.) Some styles, have their own distinctive qigongs, like Chen style's chansijing or silk-reeling exercises. Why did aikido fare better in being taught intact...
Mantak Chia was born in Thailand to Chinese parents in 1944. When he was six years old, Buddhist monks taught him how to sit and still the mind. While still a grammar school student, he learned traditional Thai boxing. He was then taught Tai Chi Chuan by Master Lu, who soon introduced him to Aikido, Yoga and broader levels of Tai Chi.
This is precisely what the Founder of Aikido, O-Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, did when he created (perhaps, unbeknownst to himself) a superb style of Internal Martial Arts geared toward dealing with attacks by opponents stuck in their heads. Virtually all Aikido techniques operate from the energy center in the pelvis often referred to as Lower Dan Tien, or Hara in Japanese, which conducts the energy of the element of Water. In Aikido, Atemi (distracting counter-attack) is most often directed towards the head because it is where the attackers get their energy as long as they operate on the energy of the element of Earth. In fact, exhibiting aggression is an indication of being stuck in the Upper Dan Tien or another energy center. It often takes just a slight slap in the face to recycle this energy or even to turn the energy center off. Then it becomes so much easier to throw the opponent on the ground utilizing his or her own inertia and lack of balance.
