An Eclectic selection of Erle Montaigue's Fighting, Healing & training Methods Taken from Erle Montaigue's March 2006 workshop in London UK, This series catalogues all of those very important training and fighting methods that cannot be put into any particular category. On this first volume, Erle covers and teaches, the most important area of Qi Awakening using firstly, two methods, one from Bagua and one for Taiji, in order to 'wake the qi' ready for action.
These are excellent methods for instance for teachers who are beginning a new (or current) class and wish to gain some cohesion between the students and a balancing of the total energy in that class. You will find that if the energy is a little low to begin with (cold), after these are given, the whole class will be 'up'. Also included on this first volume is the way of 'bumping push hands' whereby the student learns how to sub-consciously think about multiple things at the same time and of course this is important for the fighting arts.
