  • Title: Taikiken Pages - history of Taikiken 1
    Descriptive info: The way of leadership is not for doing but for not doing.. What does nondoing means? It means that the intelligent do not act on rank, the benevolent do not give on base of rank, and the brave are not violent based on rank.. These can be called nondoing.. History of Taiki-ken.. The tradition that the Chinese martial arts began with the practices of the Indian Buddhist priest and mystic Bodhidharma, who came to the Chinese temple Shaolin-szu in the sixth century and who is considered the founder of Zen, is without substantiation.. Nonetheless, since many martial arts are still called by the name Shao-lin-szu, it is likely that martial training at that temple is of great antiquity.. Hand-to-hand combat (ch’üan-fa in Chinese and kempo in Japanese) is one of the most important of the many Chinese martial arts.. The minor varieties of kempo are virtually numberless, but some of the most famous of the schools into which it has gradually been divided are.. Shao-lin-ch’üan.. ,.. T ai-chi-ch’üan.. Hsing-I-ch’üan.. , and.. Pa-kua-ch’üan.. Taiki-ken, the subject of this book, has developed from Hsing-i-ch’üan.. Chinese hand-to-hand combat schools may be divided into two major categories: the inner group and the outer group.. Hsing-i-ch üan, T ai-chi-ch üan, and Pa-kua-ch üan belong to the inner group, whereas Shao-lin-ch üan belongs to the outer group,.. Though there are problems inherent in the very act of making such a division, an understanding of the difference between the inner and outer groups is of  ...   It is generally said that Hsing-i-ch’üan was originated by a man named Yueh Fei, but there is nothing to prove this attribution.. Later a man named Li Lo-neng of Hupei Province became very famous in Hsing-i-ch üan combat.. His disciple Kuo Yun-shen became still more famous for his overwhelming power.. It is said that of all the men who participated in combat bouts with him only two escaped deaths.. These two were his own disciple Ch e I-ch i and Tung Hai-chuan of the Pa-kua-ch üan School.. Kuo Yun-shen himself killed so many martial-arts specialists from various countries that he was imprisoned for three years.. While in prison he perfected the mystical technique that is known as the Demon Hand.. With the appearance of Kuo Yun-shen, the fame of hsing-i-ch’üan spread throughout China.. Other outstanding specialists in this tradition include Kuo Shen, Li Tien-ying, and Wang Hsiang-ch i.. Wang was the founder of Ta-ch eng-ch’üan in this capacity he is known as Wang Yü-seng and was my own teacher.. Sun Lu-t ang, a disciple of Li Tien-ying, saw the elements shared in common by Hsing-i-ch’üan, Pa-kua-ch’üan, and T ai-chi-ch’üan and developed a school consolidating all of them.. Lu Chi-lan, who was a student at the same time as Kuo Yun- shen, accepted the teachings of Hsing-i-ch üan in their pure form, passed them on to his disciples Li Ts un-i, who in turn passed them on to his disciple Hsiang Yunhsing.. In this way, a conservative school was established..

  • Title: Taikiken Pages - About Hsing I chuan 1
    Descriptive info: About Hsing-I chuan in the history of Taikiken.. I should like to add more details to the explanation I have already given of Hsing-i-ch üan in the discussion of the history of Taiki-ken.. Hsing-i ch üan (also known as Ksin-i-ch üan) is said to have been originated in the Sung period (tenth to thirteenth century) in China by a man named Yueh-fai, though t ere is nothing to prove this.. From the late Ming to the early Ch ing period (about the second half of the seventeenth century), in province of Shansi, there appeared a great expert in the use of the lance; his name was Chi Chi-ho.. By about this time, the basic nature of Hsing-i-ch üan was already determined.. The tradition was inherited and carried on by Ts ao Chi-wu and Ma Hsueh-li.. In the Ch ing period (which lasted from 1644 until 1912), Tsai Neng-pang and Tsai Ling-pang became disciples of Ts’ao Chi-wu.. Lin Neng-jan , who lived in Hopei province, heard rumours about Tsai Neng-pang and decided to study with him.. In his late forties, Li Neng-jan became so skillful and powerful that he was called divine fist.. His skill and speed were so great that opponents never had a chance to come close to him.. After he returned from the place in which he had been studying to his home province of Hopei, he concentrated on training disciples, with the consequence that Hopei Hsing-i-ch üan became famous throughout China.. He had many disciples, but among them Kuo Yun-shen was the most famous.. He was said to have no worthy opponents in the whole nation.. Kuo Yun-shen was especially noted for his skill in a technique called the peng-ch üan, with which he was able to down almost all corners.. In one bout, he employed this technique and killed his opponent, with the result that he was thrown  ...   wish and immediately sent him flying with one blow of his peng-ch üan.. The man rose and asked for another bout.. Once again Kuo did as he was requested, but this time the man did not rise, because one of his ribs was broken.. The study of Hsing-i-ch üan involves first basic development of ki through Zen then the study of the Chinese cosmic, philosophy called T ai-chi-hs5eh, which originated as a system for divination and reached full development during the Sung period.. The physical aspects of training involve five techniques called the Hsing-i-wu-hsing-ch üan: the p i-ch üan (splitting fist), peng-ch üan (crushing fist), tsuan-ch üan (piercing fist), p ao-ch üan (roasting fist), and the Kuo-ch üan (united fists) plus a fifth that is an advanced application technique called the lien-huan-ch üan (connected-circle fist).. As a person practices using these techniques in training sessions and bouts with opponents, he gradually learns which suits him best.. Hsing-i-ch üan is further characterized by forms (hsing in Chinese and kata in Japanese) based on the instinctive motions of twelve actual and mythical animals: dragon, tiger, monkey, horse, turtle, cock, eagle, swallow, snake, phoenix, hawk, and bear.. The very name Hsing-i-ch üan means that it is the ability to use these motions without conscious consideration that gives the system its meaning.. The practitioner of Hsing-i-ch üan must use the forms automatically and without reference to his conscious will.. The point that sets Hsing-i-ch üan most clearly apart from other martial arts is related to this theory, for in Hsing-i-ch üan training, no matter how thoroughly a person may have mastered the techniques, if he is unenlightened about the basic meaning of the forms, his efforts are wasted.. People striving for progress in the martial arts must be aware of this point and must keep it in mind throughout their daily practice.. The Essence of Kung Fu..

  • Title: Taikiken characteristics 1
    Descriptive info: Taiki-ken: Characteristics, the principle of Ki and more.. The principle of ki, without which there could be no Taiki-ken, is not especially difficult.. Though there are differences in its strengths, ki is found in every one.. Students of the martial arts attempt to train their ki to the point where, upon coming into contact with an opponent, they can give full manifestation to it.. This is only as it should be, since there would be no meaning in training, no matter how assiduous, if the individual found himself incapable of bringing forth his ki at the moment of need.. There is no method for ensuring the ability to call upon the strength of ki, but standing Zen as practiced by specialists in the martial arts in China and as employed in Ta-ch eng-ch üan and Taiki-ken, can develop a capability to do so.. Standing Zen calms the nerves, sharpens the perceptions, and regulates the breathing.. When a person begins standing Zen, his mind is clouded with all kind of thoughts.. Soon, however, he will experience pain in his hands, feet, or hips.. When this happens, all of his thoughts concentrate in the part of the body that hurts, and he is unable to think of anything else.. The pain figuratively removes the hurting part of the body from the realm of sense perception.. As one continues to suffer discomfort of this kind for a period of years, one cultivates the ability to derive great refreshment from standing Zen.. Before one is aware of it, the power of ki begins to grow to maturity.. I suffered when I practiced standing Zen with my teacher Wang Hsiang-ch i and wonder what good such practice would ever do me.. When  ...   A practitioner of the martial arts who generates the power of ki is like the spinning top.. Though from the outside he seems perfectly calm and still, an opponent who comes into contact with him is immediately driven away by the force of the man s ki.. There are no fixed forms in Taiki-ken.. Although this book presents methods of defense and attack they are only examples of the kinds of attacks and defenses that are possible.. Practicing to perfect Zen and hai (see p.. 24) constitute the basis of training.. When one comes into contact with an opponent, one s body must be able to move with complete freedom.. Forcing large and small people to practice the same forms is meaningless.. Furthermore, excess attention to forms only kills freedom of motion.. Taiki-ken aims at allowing each individual to use the body motions that suit him.. This is both the outstanding merit and one of the greatest difficulties of Taiki-ken.. A person only begins to bud as a true practitioner of martial arts of the inner school when he is able to employ the movements that are inherent in his own body.. It is because Taiki-ken allows the person to evolve his own forms of motion that it is sometimes referred to as lacking, yet having, forms.. One of the important points in Taiki-ken training is the disassociation of the body parts; the arms must be trained to act on their own and alone.. The same is true of the feet and legs.. Take the world lightly, and your spirit will not be burdened.. Consider everything minor, and the mind will not be confused.. Regard death and life as equal, and your heart will not be afraid..

  • Title: Taiki-ken Zen - Zhan Zhuang - Health Stance
    Descriptive info: Zen meditation.. In Japan the most widely practiced Zen discipline is zazen, or seated meditation.. But the Chinese practitioners of the martial arts often use a standing Zen devised to reinforce the person s inner power and to enable him to generate sudden, violent bursts of energy.. This energy is generally called ki, and standing Zen is the best way to cultivate it.. As I have already said, verbal explanations of ki are no more than empty words because they cannot lead to a true understanding.. Self training through standing Zen, training sessions, and combat with opponents are the only things that lead to an awareness of the meaning of ki.. The famous men of Hsing-i-ch üan, Ta-ch eng-ch üan, and Taiki-ken have all taught that Zen and training are the only ways.. My own enlightenment to the nature of ki did not occur until I had returned from China and had spent many years in combat training in Japan.. Wang Hsiang-ch i used to say that the atmosphere of ki can be suggested by comparison with a fish swimming in a pond.. When a small stone is dropped into the pond, the fish instantaneously swims away.. This reaction is more than what is usually called the operations of the motor nerves.. Believing what he said to be true, I teach the same thing to my students.. The person who understands ki is always able to generate it and to use perfectly natural bodily motions to counter the attacks of whatever opponents may arrive on the scene.. A person who does not understand it, however, may train his muscles as much as he wishes, but he is likely to be pulled into the attacks of his opponent.. Of course, it  ...   is different from the seated Zen meditation of Zen Buddhism, the ultimate goal of which is psychological discipline.. Of course, in standing Zen too psychological discipline is important, for the person must be able to react in a mindless way to the opponent s moves and must not rely on conscious judgments.. But the standing meditation regimen has physical aspects as well.. These are related to the physical training of the martial arts and are based on the premise that instantaneous motion must be possible at all times.. (There is a modification of full standing Zen that is called half-Zen or han-Zen).. It is best to practice standing Zen in the morning and out of doors.. New spiritual powers only well up in human minds when people are in a natural setting.. Furthermore, each person must be entirely flexible in his attitude toward place and conditions of training.. That is to say, each person must be able to train anywhere and at any time.. The idea that training halls, training equipment and opponents are requirements of training may express interest in the martial arts but does not reveal the attitude of a person truly devoted to them.. Standing Zen among the trees gives one an indescribably good feeling of being in harmony with nature.. Ki is born of this kind of Zen even when the person is temporarily out of sorts or not in the mood for what he is doing.. Put away the wine and stop the music, and the mind suddenly feels as though it has suffered loss; it is upset, as though it has been bereft of something.. What makes this happen? Using external, instead of using internal in such a way as to make the external pleasant..

  • Title: Taiki-ken Crawling
    Descriptive info: Hai (Crawling).. Crawling training for the protection and safety of your body is designed for use when the opponent attacks.. Chinese T ai-chi philosophy has a classification of the cosmos into three large divisions: heaven, earth, and man.. Taiki-ken applies this division to the human body, which it divides into the same heaven, earth, and man realms.. These are designated t ien (heaven), ti (earth), and jen (man) in Chinese and ten (heaven), chi (earth), and jin (man) in Japanese.. Of the three, jen is considered the most important.. When an opponent attacks, it is sufficient if you defend the jen zone of the body.. In order to do this, however, it is essential to develop the legs and hips (the ti, or earth, zone).. Defense of the jen part of the body obviously entails knowledge of that part.. And such knowledge must not be solely mental, but must arise from an unconscious awareness on the part of the entire body.. Furthermore, the arms must act as the antennae of an insect in detecting the kind of attack the opponent intends to make.. Practice in the hai is designed to train the ti and jen parts of the body.. Ti develops the strength of the feet and hips; and jen, that of the hands in the role as antennae.. If these parts are not thoroughly trained and if they are not well balanced, weaknesses will inevitably  ...   the same pace, move backward.. Your gaze must not be concentrated on one point; instead it must be unrestricted enough to allow you to take in whatever movements the opponent may make.. For the method of advancing in the hai, see the chart on p.. 26.. Advancing method for the hai.. Front view.. From the original position (Fig.. 1), lower your hips and raise both arms (Fig.. 2).. Leaving your hips and abdominal region at the same level, put your weight on your right foot and take one step forward (Figs.. 3 and 4).. Then, leaving your hips and abdominal region at the same level, switch your weight to your left foot and take another step forward (Figs.. 5 through 8).. Using the same stepping method, advance about five meters.. Your eyes must be directed, without being fixed on any one point, at a distance of about three meters in front of you.. Using the motions explained in the preceding section, step backward (Figs.. 17 through 30).. Return to the original position (Fig.. 3 1).. Do not forget that, though you are moving backward in this part of the exercise, your ki 26 must be directed forward.. The feet can walk; let them walk.. The hands can hold; let the hold.. Hear what is heard by your ears; see what is seen by your eyes.. Use what is naturally useful; do what you spontaneously can do..

  • Title: Taiki-ken Neri -Kneading, Mukaete
    Descriptive info: Neri (Kneading).. Zen and hai are ways of developing the inner ki of the individual; they are therefore basic elements of Taiki-ken.. But the development of inner ki alone does not constitute a martial art.. To lesser or greater extents, ki exists in all animals.. In order to convert ki into part of a martial art, the person must be able to use it to generate explosive bursts of power without conscious thought at the moment when he comes into contact with an attacking opponent.. Neri trains the outer part of the person, the muscles of his body.. It might be called a training method for attacks and defenses.. The word.. neri.. itself is a Japanese term applied to the act of kneading as practiced on clay by the potter.. Just as the potter presses and stretches clay from all sides, so neri is applied to all parts of the body to develop strength, toughness, and resilience.. It does not prescribe training for special parts of the body for use in specified defenses against given kinds of attacks.. As I have said, it strives to produce bodily flexibility and toughness; consequently, the kinds of neri training used may vary with the person involved.. The following  ...   the person s limits of defense, to meet the attack.. mukae-te.. is used to describe methods of warding off the opponent s attack as well.. The characteristic merit of mukae-te is reduction of the maximum strength of the opponent s strike.. Although this is similar to Basic Movement III (see p.. 32), the ways in which the arms are pulled inward and pushed forward differ.. 1), pull your right arm upward and inward to a position at the side of your right ear (Figs.. 2 and 3).. Then, as you pull your right foot inward, push your right hand to the front and pull your left hand toward you (Figs.. 4 and 5).. The remainder of the practice method consists in repetitions of these movements (Figs.. 6 through 9).. It is important in this method to turn the palm of the hand forward to agree with the forward push.. The body motions and the pushing of the hands and arms must be coordinated.. A gentleman’s way of teaching is to guide the students instead of pushing them.. He will encourage them to learn rather the suppress them, and he will open the way to truth instead of telling them the answers to all their questions..

  • Title: Taiki-ken Harai-te
    Descriptive info: Of the training methods set forth in an earlier section mukae-te, harai-te, sashite, and daken-sashi-te is considered the most difficult.. But it must be mastered because it is so important that it might be called the ultimate basis, not only of Taiki-ken, but also of Hsing-i-ch üan and Ta-ch eng-ch üan.. Sashi-te involves advancing toward the opponent as he attacks and executing defense and attack simultaneously.. The moment the opponent attacks, you must already have moved boldly and forcefully toward him.. Furthermore, your own bodily defense must already be ensured.. As is the case in the mukae-te, harai-te, and daken, the hand that is not used in defense must serve as the soe-te.. Mastering the sash-te is difficult.. As a person who has a degree of training in the martial arts will readily understand, moving close to an attacking opponent is not easy.. How to do this often remains a major problem.. First of all, the approach must be  ...   do not parry wider than necessary.. When you parry always do so with your hips lowered and with the intention of moving into the opponent s limits of defense.. Leaving your right foot advanced one-half step, assume the position shown in Fig.. 1.. Imagine that the opponent is striking with his fist in your middle region (chudan).. Practice parrying as you pull his fist toward you with your left hand (Figs.. 2 through 4).. The right hand must be a soe-te; it can be used in an attack to force the opponent off balance.. With your feet in the same positions, but exchanging the positions of your hands, repeat the same motions (Figs.. 5 and 6).. For the practice method, see p.. 98.. A great man should learn from everybody, even those who are inferior to him.. He should not learn from one teacher alone.. An inadequate man feels ashamed to learn from others and reluctant to acknowledge his ignorance..

  • Title: Taiki-ken Sashte - executing defense and attack
    Descriptive info: approaching him may be accompanied by psychological uneasiness.. This emotional condition is the same even if the opponent is a person who has been practicing the same methods for the same length of time as you.. The only way to overcome the feeling is through practice in Zen and hai, which enable one to move toward the opponent in a state of virtual unconsciousness.. Zen and hai training develops abundant power to manifest ki; and this, in turn, enables you to move boldly into an opponent s sphere of defense, no matter what kind of attack he attempts.. With such training, the person who might have been uneasy and nervous if he tried such a move consciously can approach his  ...   and all of the opponent s movements, you must not fix your gaze on any one point.. From ancient times, Chinese specialists in the martial arts have held that the eye is unreliable.. If you stare at the opponent, any feint or diversion he may try to make is likely to upset you.. Instead of permitting this to happen, allow your gaze to rest vaguely on the opponent so that you can take in his entire body and all of his actions.. A student is not inferior to his teacher, and the teacher is not superior to his student.. The difference between a teacher and a student is, the former knows Tao earlier and they each have their own expertise..

  • Title: Taiki-ken Tanshu - Shadow boxing
    Descriptive info: Tanshu.. Since the tanshu is performed by one person alone, it gives an excellent idea of the way that person has been training.. It is therefore a fine method for revealing the extent to which the performer has mastered Taiki-ken.. Of course, within tanshu there are places that differ entirely with the person performing them, and each person must discover the movement forms that suit his individual personality and body.. This characteristic of the tanshu emphasizes a trait of Taiki-ken itself, for this is the martial art that is described as having, yet lacking, forms.. Ordinarily, the motions in tanshu move gradually from the calm to the highly active.. The person performing the tanshu must.. keep in mind the idea that he is training his body while he imagines the presence of an opponent.. For this reason, he must aim at a complete set of motions including all Taiki-ken techniques, He must sometimes use large gestures and sometimes small motions.. He must include thrusts in his movements.. I think that what the following remarks say about the attitude of the hunter with a blowpipe and darts has bearing on the approach one must adopt toward  ...   of ki.. FOR MORE INFO ON TAIKIKEN VISIT.. WWW.. MARTRIX.. ORG.. Finally, I should like to urge you to pay special attention to the following points when you are executing tanshu.. a.. When you make attack motions, pay attention to the position of the soe-te.. b.. In hai movements forward and backward, always use natural strides.. c.. When you have made one daken motion, immediately either strike or pull with your arm again.. Another Taiki-ken characteristic is the insistence that the second and third push or pull with the arms.. and hands when an opponent pursues spell either defeat or victory.. d.. Do not attempt more elaborate footwork than is actually necessary.. e.. When you move, your drive must be always directed forward.. Do not forget the matter of drive when.. you move to the rear.. f.. Do not select a certain form and leave your body in it.. A gentleman should not be satisfied with what he can, but always look for what he cannot.. Each day he should complete his set tasks with the contents varying with each passing month and year.. He should continue learning without stop until the end of his life..
