Early Martial Artists harnessed the secret power of the tendons to be more effective in combat. Today, you can utilize this same secret to achieve increased health and longevity.
Iron Shirt Qigong 2 is the internal exercise practice of strengthening tendons and applying the use of Tendon Power to movement. You will learn both individual and partner exercises to facilitate growth of strong and elastic tendons throughout the entire body. Maintaining strength and flexibility enables you to both absorb and discharge energy as you move and interact. You will also discover how to initiate movement with the support of your skeletal structure rather than your muscles alone.
This practice will bring you profound benefits whether you are a martial artist, athlete, or simply desire greater health and wellness in your life. Gaining new-found strength, flexibility, and energy, you will increase your physical performance and enjoy a new ease and effortlessness in all areas of your life.
You can actually grow your tendons, making them supple and elastic like a child's. Your joints can open and become free passageways for the "Chi" life force energy to circulate through your body. The key to these changes is the use of slow, gentle movements that activate the tendons, followed by quiet meditation that directs the internal energy. Enliven Your Joints and Tendons presents exercises to train you to combine the mind, heart, bone structure and Chi flow into one moving unit.
In Enliven your Joints and Tendons, Master Chia leads you through a set of moving postures that evolve out of the static forms learned in the first level of Iron Shirt Chi Kung. You will learn these postures as individual exercises and as partner exercises. You will learn how to absorb and discharge energy through your tendons. Also, Master Chia teaches the use of a Mung Bean filled cloth hitter that will release accumulated toxins in your joints and muscles.
