The Encyclopedia of Dim-Mak: The Extra Meridians, Points, and More
The remarkable martial art technique of dim-mak is the strategic and focused use of force to cause pain or lethal damage to an aggressor. Master Erle Montaigue and Wally Simpson's The Encyclopedia of Dim-Mak is the most comprehensive, informative, and authoritative resource on the subject.
Montaigue, one of the world's foremost experts on dim-mak techniques, and Simpson, a renowned Australian acupuncturist, together possess an unparalleled knowledge of this ancient Chinese martial art. In the first volume of this two-volume set, The Main Meridians, they map the precise locations of every major strike point on the body, referencing the twelve main energy meridians. This companion volume, The Extra Meridians, serves to elucidate the eight additional meridians which are not associated with any organs, most notably the conceptor and governing vessels forming the centerline of the body's flow of energy. Use of these meridians as strike points can be key in effectively disabling an aggressor by causing confusion, lack of balance, and disrupting the body's polarity.
Montaigue has also included other, lesser-known points not associated with any particular meridian which are still effective points of attack. There is, in addition, a chapter devoted to the medical aspects of strikes to certain points, with accompanying evidence of why the strikes work. In the summation "Internal Methods" he reviews all of the information provided and raises it to a higher level of focus in directing the qi.
This second volume of The Encyclopedia of Dim Mak complements and completes the full course of learning how to use this ancient training as a balanced and effective defensive tool and full-body discipline.
