Synopsis

For centuries, the internal martial traditions of Asia have produced individuals renowned for their skills in fighting, healing and meditation. Inspired by the author's personal training experiences, this book reveals the stories and training methods of the old Masters as well as the current generation.



Focussing on the internal disciplines of different combat systems, the book includes in-depth conversations with esteemed Masters such as Dr Serge Augier and Master He Jing Han. It encompasses the arts of China, Japan, India and South East Asia, revealing the inner keys of systems such as Bagua, Xingyi, Ziranmen, Taijiquan, Iaido, Muay Thai Sangha, Pentjak Silat, Kun Tao and the old Shaolin system, and providing invaluable insights into the life of the Master and his or her role as spiritual practitioner of the art. With commentary from the author and personal photographs of the Masters at work, the book constitutes an intimate exploration of the philosophy and wisdom of the real esoteric warriors.



Exploring some of the rarest martial art forms, from the mysterious practices of the Yamabushi priests to the potent healing and weapon skills of the Phoenix Eye Fist Grandmaster, this book will fascinate practitioners and students of martial arts, as well as anyone interested in Eastern philosophy.

Alex Kozma began his training in a traditional family system of Chinese martial arts at the age of thirteen, and has devoted his life to the practice and study of the martial, meditative and healing aspects of the Eastern arts. He spent eight years practicing in Asia under Master Chen Yuen San (Taijiquan), Master He Jing Han (Baguaquan) and other experts. In 1997 he qualified as a teacher of the Neijia arts under his teacher, Daoist Master Serge Augier. For many years he has studied traditional Oriental medicine as a private student of Master Eichi Tanaka (inheritor of the Daiwa ryu healing system of Shitennogi Temple) and Master Paul Whitrod (Chow Gar family system). Alex now runs a healing clinic in Cambridge, UK, and continues his daily practice and study.
