Hello! And welcome to Knights of the Temple. This blog is research of universal scientific and natural principles in regards to the healing arts – to build the practitioners as well as minimize damage to the practitioners during survival combat or other critical situations. We will review how to apply each principle, demonstrate it in short videos, and invite you to apply – and upload a video yourself. This is a blog for Martial artists, healers, healthy eaters, and those who want to be “competent and dangerous” in the words of Jordan Peterson.
Scientific Principles of Combat
A. A. Kadochnikov, the father of Russian biomechanical systema martial art showed how to apply physics, biomechanics, and efficiency systems to his scientific martial art. This is a thinking man’s martial art. Using our most valuable tool, our mind.
Foundational Scientific Style
Wing Chun (Ving Tsun) also has some of the same foundational science in it especially in the methods of Wong Shun Leung. We will approach this style from the new approach of Senmotic Functional Defense. This includes the barefoot code, walking naturally, movement from the spine, and the move from your center of gravity principles learned from Zui quan (Drunken Boxing) to elevate your training. We will not be taking ourselves seriously, we will learn through Drunken Boxing how to play the fool. And Most importantly on this Knights of the Temple blog, learn how to be fools for Christ. We will learn the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God:
Main principle of creation: The spiral or fibbonaci sequence, the golden ratio or the vortex. Also in this natural martial sequence we will learn how to apply the figure 8, the wave, and circle. Never ending movement. We will study Vedic Natural science, Viktor Shauberger and his studies of water and learn about the masculine and feminine structures of water itself. The Naultius scientific journal explains it best:
“One day, frustrated after many hours of meditation and practice, Bruce Lee, still a teenager, went sailing. His martial arts teacher, Yip Man, had been instructing Lee in the art of detachment, a key facet of gung fu. Lee couldn’t let go. “On the sea I thought of all my past training and got mad at myself and punched the water!” he later wrote. “Right then—at that moment—a thought suddenly struck me; was not this water the very essence of gung fu? I struck it but it did not suffer hurt. I then tried to grasp a handful of it but this proved impossible. This water, the softest substance in the world, which could be contained in the smallest jar, only seemed weak. In reality, it could penetrate the hardest substance in the world. That was it! I wanted to be like the nature of water.”
For Lee, the budding martial artist, water embodied an ideal of lithe and effortless strength.”
