How To Use Energy Flux In Kenpo Self Defense Techniques

By Guest

This is a very easy and intuitive way to weaken your opponent simply by using an energy flux concept. This concept can be used before you use any of the kung fu self defense techniques, or before karate kumite. You can use it when any confrontation arises which is going to require you to use physical force on somebody.

Now, it won’t knock him unconscious, I can’t guarantee a win, that is going to depend on how much dedication you apply to your normal martial arts training. But it may weaken him just long enough to give you the edge in protecting yourself. I don’t know about you, but even a slight edge is something I want in my pocket when I get in a kenpo fight, or any kind of martial arts fight.

Now, to set this trick up, you need to know something about the workings of the body, and about the energy of the body. There is a main pathway for energy which runs right up the center of the body and down the spine. This pathway is a meridian, it is a channel for major energy flow in the body.

What we want to do is disrupt this energy, however briefly, and cause your foe’s body to move more slowly. We are going to do this by reversing the energy flow of that main meridian. This is very easy to do, and should slow the opponent’s body down just long enough for you to…you know.

To make sure you understand how this technique works, have a partner stand with his feet shoulder width apart and his arms straight out to the sides. Now, press down on his hands gently, and you will notice how much force you have to apply. Second, place your finger on his neck and trace a line down the center of his body to the belly button, and now press on his hands.

He should be a little weaker. Now ‘zip’ your digit from the navel to the neck, and you will notice he is stronger. This speedy (1 to 2 seconds) motion slows the flow of his energy down, or returns it to normal speed (if you go up), and the result is weaker or stronger.

Practice this with several people. Don’t tell them what you are doing (until after), just practice zipping and unzipping energy. After a while you will actually be able to stand back and trace the path with your moving eyes, and cause weakness or strength.

Now, depending on you and your dedication to the art, this may or may not take a while to accomplish. It will happen sooner if you are a dedicated martial arts fanatic, and you practice your kung fu techniques religiously, and, especially if you have matrixed your martial art and understand how energy flux theory works. That understood, that is how you use the energy flux in any kung fu self defense techniques.
