Kurzbeschreibung

Contrary to popular myth, the original purpose of dim mak was not the training of assassins. It was an intensive study of the medical arts that incorporated the martial arts, and its ultimate goal was to heal, not to destroy. True to the intent of the ancient Chinese masters, here is an undiluted, holistic study of dim mak as both a martial and a healing art. Included are a historical overview of dim mak and Traditional Chinese Medicine, discussions of the physiological mechanism and medical risks of acupoint strikes, an indepth introduction to the classical 36 Chamber training program traditionally used to teach dim mak; detailed analyses of the medical and martial applications of each of the acupoints on the 12 main meridians, complete with detailed diagrams outlining each meridian system and its acupoint locations; and an introduction to herbal pharmacology, which was an integral part of traditional dim mak training. Appendices serve as quick reference guides to the activation method and results of selected point strikes. For academic study only.

Synopsis

Contrary to popular myth, the original purpose of dim-mak was not the training of assassins. It was an intensive study of the medical arts that incorporated the martial arts, and its ultimate goal was to heal, not to destroy. True to the intent of the ancient Chinese masters, here is an undiluted, holistic study of dim-mak as both a martial and a healing art. A modern supplement to the handful of classical texts in existence, it preserves the integrity of the traditional teachings while tearing down the walls of mystery and intrigue that surround the art. After providing a historical overview of dim-mak and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the book explores the physiological mechanism of dim-mak from Eastern and Western perspectives. In addition, it offers a rare look at the fabled 36-Chamber training sequence traditionally used to teach dim-mak; in-depth analyses of each of the acupoints on the twelve main meridians, including their medicinal uses, martial applications and antidotes; and an introduction to the herbal pharmacology that was an integral part of traditional dim-mak training.

Those seeking a balanced, professional perspective on dim-mak that will find this insightful guide an indispensable resource.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Faszinierend und spannend 10. Dezember 2004
Von Near
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Da ich selber Hung Gar und Choy Li Fut seid über 16 Jahre praktiziere bin ich extrem skeptisch wenn Bücher über Dim Mak veröffentlich werden, die nur auf dem tödlichen Aspekt der Dim Mak eingehen und somit ein völlig falsches Bild zeigen.So erfreut war ich als ich mir dieses Buch gekauft habe. Das Buch schildert die geschichtliche Entwicklung der alten Kunst, die in der Akkunpunktur ihren Ursprung hat und ein Teil der chinesischen Medizin ist. Dabei werden bestimmte Aspekte der fernöstlichen Medizin mit moderner westlichen Studien belegt, dabei stützen sich die Autoren auf empirischen Untersuchungen und nicht nur auf Thesen. Das Buch schildert von allem wie Dim Mak zu alten Zeiten gelehrt wurde und welche Wirkungen die alten Meister den einzelnen Akkunpunkturpunkten zugewiesen haben, so wie es seid Jahrhundert weitergegeben wurde, so enthält das Buch detaillierte Beschreibung über die einzelnen Akkunpunkturstellen, ihren medizinischen Zweck und den Effekt von Dim Mak Techniken an diesen Stellen. Interessant sind zudem die verschiedenen Rezepte traditioneller chinesischer Medizin wie z.b Dit da jow. Dieses Mittel wird für das Holzpuppen Training benutzt um blaue Flecken und Schwellungen zu lindern. Das mit Abstand beste Buch über Dim Mak.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eine gut recherchierte Arbeit 21. Juni 2006
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Werk von Walker und Bauer stellt eine gute Ergänzung zu den Büchern von Erle Montaigue dar. Die Autoren haben sich offenbar intensiv mit der Akupunktur beschäftigt. Daher fiel es ihnen leicht einen Zugang zu der schweren Materie des DIM Mac zu finden. Für den Laien bleibt das Thema jedoch schwierig, wenn keine medizinischen Kenntnisse vorhanden sind. Zwar gibt es einige Fehler in dem Buch, diese fallen jedoch nicht so sehr ins Gewicht. So ist z.B. bei der Darstellung des Blasenmeridians im Text und in den Abbildungen eine untersciedliche Systematik benutzt worden. Daher stimmen die Akupunkturpunkte nicht überein. Auch, wenn bei DIM Mac einiges zunächst als Hypothese erscheint, da viele Kombinationen nicht wissenschaftlich überprüft werden können oder sollten, weil sie zu gesundheitlichen Schäden führen können, so bleibt das Buch ein interessanter Einstieg in die Gedankenwelt alter chinesischer Kampfkunst.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Inside the 36 Chambers of Dim-Mak 6. Dezember 2002
Von Rick Bauer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
First off, let me preface this review and recuse myself to a degree. I am the co-author of this particular book. After much consideration, I decided to post something to Amazon.com, to help give the reader a general idea of the scope and content of this book, since none is currently included with this listing. The Ancient Art of Life and Death: The Book of Dim-Mak, took a considerable amount of time to write. Conservatively, Mr. Walker and I spent almost four years writing the text; roughly equating to 15,000 man-hours of highly specialized research, review, and work. As part of the review process, we submitted large portions of the text to a number of Doctors in the medical community. The intent of this project was to provide the advanced martial arts reader with a host of important facts and information, concerning the effects of martial applications to the acupoint centers of the human body. The major chapter areas of the book include:
1. Historical Overview of Traditional Chinese Medicine
2. The development of Dim-Mak, Dim Hsueh and Dim Ching
3. The Mechanism of Acupoint Strikes
4. The Medical Risks Associated with Acupoint Strikes
5. The Three Ways of Dim-Mak
6. Introduction to the 36-Chamber Training Sequence
7. Overview of the Classical Acupoint System
8. An Introduction to Herbalism
9. Herbal Formula Preparation and Pharmacology
The section covering the classical acupoint system covers all the points on the 12 major meridians, including both medical and martial information, and health and restoration information. This information is derived from Mr. Walker's extensive martial arts training and professional background, under the direct study of Matsuetsu Kushubi. The coverage of the points will hopefully serve to augment / complement the high quality information previously published on this subject: most notably, the extensive catalog of material of Mr. Erle Montaigue, as well as Dr. Michael Kelly. The book also includes general anatomical drawings and TCM charts of the main meridian acupoints.
As a notation: the two midline collaterals are NOT covered in this book. There are some specific reasons for this. Most importantly, the physiological processes of striking the midline channels (the Governing Vessel and the Conception Vessel) are different than the triggering mechanisms of the main meridian points. The centerline points will be covered in the follow-up book, which Mr. Walker and I are currently in the process of writing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good insight into real Martial Art 21. Juni 2006
Von Dr. Helmut Kogel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book of Walker and Bauer is a welcome futher information besides the works of Erle Montaigue. The authors have deep insights into the art of acupuncture. For this reason it was easier for them to go into the secrets of DIM Mac. Nevertheless without medical knowledge it remains difficult to understand all details of this theme. There are some mistakes in the book, but it not so important. For example the paintings and the text of the bladder meridian use different systems. Therefore some acupuncture points do not correspond between figures and text. A lot of fighting combinations in Dim Mac remain hypotheses, because a scintific analysis is not possible or mandatory. Such combinations may result in damage of individual health, experiments have to be forbidden. Nevertheless this book is an exellent work of ancient chinese martial art.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Both basic information and higher-level overviews 6. Januar 2003
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Collaboratively written by A. Flane Walker and Richard C. Bauer, The Ancient Art Of Life And Death: The Book Of Dim-Mak is an intense, thorough, authoritative, and holistic study/presentation of all aspects of the martial art of Dim-Mak, which was originally created as a blend of medical and martial arts with the goal of being used to heal. Cycles of rebirth and destruction permeate the teachings and philosophy of the art; The Ancient Art Of Life And Death presents both basic information and higher-level overviews by combining modern-day interpretations with reproductions of classical texts. Analysis of acupoints, the fabled 36-chamber training sequence, herbal pharmacology and much more fill this seminal reference for dedicated martial arts practitioners who are interested in learning more about this ancient practice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superlative! 23. November 2004
Von S. White - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am proud to call Rick Bauer a friend and his prescence in my martial art life has always been positive, informative and influential. His long tireless work to bring this superlative book to fruition, on a deeply intricate and little known art, Dim Mak, is commendable. This collaborative effort with Master Flane Walker has long been needed and I am now able to clearly state that this is the book the internal martial arts community has been missing.

The subject matter, contents and layout of this work have been given keen attention which benefits the overall aesthetic. It is both easy on the readers eye and informative without alienating the layman. It does not play down the depth of these arts for those who frequent it's heights but rather strikes a perfect balance which comfortably caters to all; no mean feat!

In refering to my University manuals on Chinese Accupuncture Point Locations, I made a comparison with this book which did not leave me wanting. My University manuals were a largely dry affair which

catered to the medical TCM fraternity while the Book of Dim Mak covers all bases and then some. Among some of the most delightful aspects of the book is the martial applications of the points as an adjunct to the medical; very important in my view.

The subject of Dim Mak has been given lavish treatment in a most concise fashion, would it were that all books were so accessable when dealing with obscure subjects such as these. I have already found this to be the number one go-to book when requiring detailed information on Dim Mak, and while Erle Montaigue has had his own excellent works out for some years now, I can safely say that this work is an important addition to the study.

I couldn't recommend this work more highly for those with a vested interest in truly understanding the intracies of Dim Mak from tip to toe.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Only minor disappointments...Overall good book 16. Februar 2006
Von G. Stergiopoulos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Book delivers almost exactly what it promises ,so I will not mention its good points .One thing I didnt like much was the lack of clear photos for the points ,inside the chambers section of the book .Although you get a rough idea on where each point is ,I had to use my older bibliography in order to pinpoint the exact location of most points .

Also I find unacceptable that the authors did not give extensive information on Governing Vessel and Conception Vessel .Although they mention the points at the last section of the book where they present a sum of combinations and points ,there is no analysis of GV and CV .That was a disappointment .
