|Ed Martin Shihan is a long time student and master teacher of the Bujinkan Dojo system founded by Dr Masaaki Hatsumi Soke Ph.D. Another long time friend of Ed named Charles Daniel have studied many different martial arts for many years. He taught Ed a series of chi kung breathing exercises for health benefit. Ed says that this have turned out to be very true. Now you to can learn these simple and yet very effective breathing exercises with this video.
The ability to take in and store vital energy comes under the general heading of chi kung. There are hundreds of methods of chi kung, including Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian sources in China. India and Tibet both had strong influences on chi kung in China. A great interchange took place between these countries, not only in trade, but also in culture and religious practice. Many Buddhist monks carried the teachings to China, and with them secrets of health and longevity. Since that time the Chinese have adapted and changed all that they have learnt, and produced the multi-faceted chi kung of today.
The main reasons for people performing chi kung can roughly be divided into three areas.

This is a video filmed in Bujinkan Honbu Dojo in Japan with Shihan Lubos Pokorny and his students from Bujinkan Czech Dojo. The theme of this training session was Kihon Happo, the eight basic techniques of Kihon Happo.
First one of the Shidoshi shows the basic form, then Lubos Shihan goes in to detail showing the important points and the feeling. He also shows variations unarmed and with different weapons, against one or more opponents.
He is talking in Czhech as he moves around and show with the body language. He doesn't hold long "lectures", so what he says is quite easy to understand through body language.
It was filmed with two cameras from different angles and then edited very nicely so you can see the details from two angles.

It can also be a very good work out that will get you sweaty. Some exercises is easy and some is more difficult, some you can work out on your own and some you need a training partner.
