In this volume, I present mainly the extraordinary or extra meridians (mai). These include the ren, the du, the chong, the dai, the yin wei, the yang wei, the yin qiao, and the yang qiao. These extra meridians have their own separate pathways, and their points “roam” over the main meridians, holding everything together like rubber bands encircling the body. The points along these meridians are probably my favorite area of dim-mak; they offer a broader scope for experimentation because they are less rigidly placed. They are called extraordinary meridians because they differ from the main meridians in the following ways.
• The eight extra meridians are not represented by any zhang fu (internal bodily organs, such as the heart). The 12 main meridians are each represented by an internal organ.
• The eight extra meridians are not externally/internally related. The 12 extra meridians are externally/internally related.
• The eight extra meridians have no points of their own; they use those on other meridians that they cross. The 12 main meridians all have their own points and names for those points.
• The distribution of the eight extra meridians runs from the lower parts of the body to the upper (except for the chong and dai mai). The distribution of the 12 main meridians runs both upward and downward.
•The eight extra meridians have no distribution with the upper limbs. The 12 main meridians have distribution to both the upper and lower limbs.
• Of the eight extra meridians, half are single meridians (the du, ren, chang, and dai), while the other half (the yin qiao, yin wei, yang qiao, and yang wei) are distributed in pairs. All of the 12 main meridians are in pairs, on either side of the body.
