Still do not know the co-relation and interaction between MA training and Healing Practice like Acupuncture or Moxibustion etc. through long-term experience or expertise in martial arts training?
If so, that is the reason you did not learn how to do and missed it that you should have done from the beginning stage even though you have an excellent and very prominent abilities with a strong body anybody envy. It is a crucial one as a prerequisite that will guide all trainees to change consciousness in order to mature and innovate what you are now while living through martial arts training called “Muye” our ancestors used this term composed of three kinds; Skills and Medcine, Philosophy. As a matter of fact, I would sincerely like you to try to understand why I published recently, “Searching for the forgotten half in martial arts”. This book tries to illustrate how and what to train basically from the beginning stage; Self-Acquirement (Kimu-Che or Kimu-body) which reveals first time in the 21C through Jinyoung Ssangkum Ryu Haedong Kumdo for both better training and better life; Spiritual Growth
Ok, anyway, let’s get to the point!
You may set forth a counterargument how dare I can say the connection between the energy of martial arts training and the one of healing practice. Thus, you will definitely have some questions or opinions on how you can practice with corelation between swords training martial arts training and Acupuncture (Moxibustion or any other things) practice. If you are going to first get to understand what I have been training with such corelation thus far, first of all, you should be able to know how to feel the energy and where it goes and move in the body which is the basic in martial arts training as the fundamental core into all things in heaven and earth.
Training with sharpen swords is to make you show more accurate and more concentrate where it moves through the sharpen sword. I already made a promised with my students who is doing under Jinyoung Ssangkum Ryu so that they can use a long sword as a shorter needle, even I referred it through my two books in English; one is “Think Out Of The Box through the training of Haedong Kumdo”, the other is “Searching for the Forgotten Half in Martial Arts”.
As you can perceive and follow Energy flowing in the body in motions, you will probably come to feel (or see) Energy Flow in the body in a certain motion with Even Breathing and Normal Mind, Awareness and Mindfulness with which can be Tools must be based.
If you basically cannot do that, it’s impossible to follow it, and even you never be able to understand the correlation and interaction between the energy in martial arts training and the one in Acupuncture practice. But it does not mean the way to do is very high techniques or very profound idea which is in fact very simple and straightforward. Anyone may be able to do it!
For instance, moxibustion, acupuncture, hitting, rubbing, pressing, etc. All of them are a type of treatment that restores the state of mind and body come to normal by creating harmony and balance of energy throughout the body.
Therefore, it is easy to return back to an uncomfortable state if the recovered body from an uncomfortable one cannot maintain the balanced energy held by moxibustion, acupuncture, or pressure.
In particular, if someone who cannot see the energy flow touches it and disturbs the energy, there may be a risk that the energy will be possibly pushed and flocked in one place, making it worse than the original uncomfortable condition. Thus, people who study to get to know energy from nature through moxibustion, acupuncture, etc., just the same as a coin has two sides, you should always be careful to receive better energy, and then you can live with better health and more happiness as a bonus that others never ever imagine. Especially those who know and study the secrets of nature must always humble themselves and be truly humble through mindfulness and awareness.
