Esoteric Martial Arts of Zen: Training Methods of the Patriarch

Esoteric Martial Arts of Zen


This book addresses how to explore, generate and control energies not usually available to humans. 190 photographs and step-by-step instruction in two of the most influential and powerful training systems ever handed down: Shipalohanshou/18 Methods of the Enlightened Ones and Yijinjing/Muscle-Sinew Changing.

It offers integrated training for those who wish to do the work of improving cerebral functions, coming to full understanding of the human experience, and maintaining multi-level health. It is based on the training methods from ancient India and China, as experienced by the founder of Chan/Zen Buddhism, Bodhidharma (Tamo) as he grew into adulthood and spiritual maturity. The Patriarch of Zen was considered a dangerous rebel by the status quo, and for good reason: his approach to human development rejected authority outside of oneself, including scripture and officials. Officials/Intellectuals within the Buddhist hierarchy have always had a hard time with Tamo's methods of direct pointing.

This training information has been suppressed by almost the entire Zen hierarchy of Japan, USA and Europe. It is only because of the "fringe" members of the spiritual family, i.e. martial artists, that this information has been worked with and preserved. Includes extensive historical perspectives and cultural commentary.

This is for both the thinking martial artist as well as the artist of life!
