|Chakras & Subtle Energy|
Internal training, such as meditation (zazen) and various forms of Yoga and Qigong, are excellent for this. Getting in touch with your subtle energies will enhance your martial skills as well as your health overall. It is this energy that supports your life. It is just as important as breathing. Without Ki/Qi you're dead. To keep it flowing with proper exercise, nutrition and meditation is life itself.
So, don't neglect 'internal' training. As you learn more about energy and its impact on your overall health you will wonder why we don't emphasis it in our educational systems. In future posts I will discuss more about our chakra system and its role in martial arts.
