Internal Power; Master the Internal Martial Arts
The Kind of Internal Power we are talking about:
There are different kinds of power. The most common “power” is that exhibited by most top athletes. That kind of power is generated by size and strength. It is associated with a larger and physically stronger person –– it’s the raw strength of a superior athlete. While not discounting that kind of power, the following pages describe another kind of power. It is called “internal power.”
What makes "Internal Power" different and special?
While not ignoring the contributions of normally understood physical power, “internal power” adds additional elements: traditionally, these are described in terms of “Internal Energy” and “Mind” –– the subtle energy of Mind and Spirit.
Although few "masters" (in the West or East) can show it these days, "INTERNAL POWER" is real. It does work in real combat. The pages that follow will give you what you need to understand and master it.
In addition, there are physical foundations for “internal power in the Chinese internal martial arts (IMA). Independent of “internal energy,” these also add to what makes IMA work in real combat. The Physical and Internal Energy aspects go together. The Physical principles will also be explained in the pages that follow.
