Simply stated…Chi is the energy that powers life!

In Asia, Chi has been recognized and understood for millennia. It’s the basis for both Martial Arts and traditional Chinese medicine. It’s the universal energy field that taps the electromagnetic fields of our earth and our universe. Like radio waves or microwaves, it can’t be seen, but must be judged by the results it produces.

For many years, Calasanz has trained like a modern day shaolin monk, developing his chi and his martial arts skill through daily eighteen hour workouts in his dojo. It is Calasanz’s goal to help his students develop this awesome power, without having to engage in the grueling workouts he himself has endured throughout his years of training. To achieve this goal, he has referred his training system to help students access their Chi as quickly and as powerful as possible.

Chi is an inner gift that we all possess, that we must cultivate in order to reap its many rewards. The development of one’s chi takes patience, persistence, discipline and the repetition of techniques designed to stimulate this power. To develop his chi, a martial arts student must first understand the concept of “Go” (which means hard ), and “Ju” (which means soft), and its application in the execution of martial art techniques. Bruce Lee was a master of chi and because of this; he was able to deliver powerful blows with his hands, his feet and his entire energy system.

A student who is too hard or too soft in his practice is out of balance. The right combination of Go and Ju is necessary to help facilitate the chi and deliver its power. This is why Calasanz emphasizes proper technique, when training students. If a technique is sloppy, the chi can not be effectively directed toward its target. If the technique exerts too much energy, the chi is wasted, and the student will lack endurance. Styles such as certain styles of Karate, for example, are very “hard” or “Go” in their execution of techniques. While these styles are a brutal in their system of Karate, they also lack balance. Too much Go, not enough Ju. Proper balance of Go and Ju is what makes the Calasanz System of Karate & Kung-Fu effective and popular among its students.

We believe Martial Arts offers something important to everyone on the planet- the chance to be the very best you can be. No matter what age you are…no matter what physical shape you are in… Martial Arts can transform your life.

CALASANZ: THE POWER OF CHI PART 3

Calasanz has seen many martial artists execute breaks and seriously injure themselves in the process. The cause of these injuries was misdirected chi. A well known local martial arts instructor once asked my advice regarding his breaking technique. He complained that every time he would execute a break, he would injure himself. So I observed his technique and was able to make the necessary corrections. His problem was misdirected Chi. The next time I saw him, he told me that he no longer injured himself during his breaks.

Calasanz has strong belief in the power of chi. He believes that if you have a healthy body, mind and spirit, then your body is capable of rejecting any poison going into your body, which later on could cost damage to some your organs on your body.

CALASANZ: THE POWER OF CHI PART 1

True Martial Arts mastery is in the spirit… in the mind… in the heart. The true Master teacher- the sensei, the sifu – analyzes each individual’s potential and brings out the best he or she can be.

Simply stated, Chi is the energy that powers life –all life, human, plant, animal, everything in our universe that lives. In Asia, Chi has been recognized and understood for millennia. It’s the basis for both Martial Arts and traditional Chinese medicine. It’s the force that Luke Skywalker accessed in Star Wars, the universal energy field that taps the electromagnetic fields of our earth and our universe. Like radio waves or microwaves, it can’t be seen, but must be judged by the results it produces.

In this segment of the program, Calasanz will demonstrate the Explosive power of chi and how this power can be utilized in breaking, kata, and fighting. For many years, Calasanz has trained like a modern day shaolin monk, developing his chi and his martial arts skill through daily eighteen hour workouts in his dojo. It is Calasanz’s goal to help his students develop this awesome power, without having to engage in the grueling workouts he himself has endured throughout his years of training. To achieve this goal, he has refered his training system to help students access their Chi as quickly and as powerful as possible.

Phsyical Arts Exercises: The Making of a Better Body Figure

Physical Arts helps you to reach your goals faster.  It is important to get your technique to flow.  This will cause a greater circulation of the “chi” or internal energy we all have.  When techniques aren’t smooth, it’s like a “kink” in a hose.  The energy gets stopped up and the water can’t flow.  Once we get out the “kinks,” then the flow of energy will allow you to train with more vigor and help you achieve a fit, healthy figure.  I designed my Physical Arts Exercises around this principle.
