1581605749 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 201 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. Contrary to popular myth, the original purpose of dim-mak was not the training of assassins. It was an intensive study of the medical arts that incorporated the martial arts, and its ultimate goal was to heal, not to destroy. True to the intent of the ancient Chinese masters, here is an undiluted, holistic study of dim-mak as both a martial and a healing art. A modern supplement to the handful of classical texts in existence, it preserves the integrity of the traditional teachings while tearing down the walls of mystery and intrigue that surround the art. After providing a historical overview of dim-mak and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the book explores the physiological mechanism of dim-mak from Eastern and Western perspectives. In addition, it offers a rare look at the fabled 36-Chamber training sequence traditionally used to teach dim-mak; in-depth analyses of each of the acupoints on the 12 main meridians, including their medicinal uses, martial applications and antidotes; and an introduction to the herbal pharmacology that was an integral part of traditional dim-mak training. Those seeking a balanced, professional perspective on dim-mak will find this insightful guide an indispensable resource. For academic study only. A.

" Mr. Walker is now considered the Grand Master of the Won Hop Loong Chuan system of martial arts. A martial artist and longtime student of A. Flane Walker, Richard C. Bauer is the author of numerous professional journal articles on military history and martial arts sub.
