Not all of the most advanced experts in Shorinji Kempo live at the main temple. Most of the advanced masters throughout Japan lead working lives, teaching in their spare time. Master Bando is one of these, he works for Japan’s railway system. He uses a Buddhist temple as his training Dojo. Master Bando is not just a master of Shorinji Kempo, he is also a leading authority on one particular section of techniques. He goes regularly to the main temple to lecture. His subject is shiatsu, it Japanese variation on acupuncture. Which uses the pressure of thumbs rather than needles for on acupuncture to cure its patients. Shorinji Kempo is main taining the ancient tradition of combining the functions of its masters, so that they are doctors as well as fighters. In addition to studying the pressure points of shiatsu, the students are also taught the manipulation of bones and muscles. This is similar to the techniques practiced in the west by osteopaths you know. I think i have explained before about “hium” This is a vital pointt just at base of the neck. Since the students practice so violently, they are constantly causing one another minor damage. Then push downwards to the base of the neck. These are techniques that can be used on anybody who needs help, they are general medical treats. Breathe in and brethe out. The same knowledge of the body that heals it can also be used to attack. This is the “chuhon” – it’s painful. Use this point to weaken. Then move down to the next point. Just thepressure of Master Bando thumb is enough to incapacitate a strong man. I want you to learn to attack way today. Even a big person – a foreigner – will fall. You can attack a big man lower down. I will show you how. You must not just do it it random … … you must press exactly on the right point. This is the secret knowledge shared by masters in India China and Japan, and taught only to the very advanced students. It is based on the acupuncture points that are not used in healing techniques. They can be used to make an extremely simple hold very effective. When master Bando only applies pressure to the students wrist it has no effect, but when he presses on the exact location of a vital point with one of his fingers, the student cannot resist. So now go and practise it. The vital points can only be used by very skilled people, since I require great precision to be effective. As part of their training, master Bando also teaches the students, how to revive people who are unconscious. As he is a thorough and conscientious teacher he first renders a student unconscious. These resuscitations are achieved by using the creative medical shiatsu techniques . It’s important for the students to learn them, since very dangerous accidents can happen while people are practicing. If the student is in charge of a Dojo, then injuries are his responsibilities. Master Bando demonstrates, how easy it is to knock someone out, using a vital point. The blow was not powerful, its effect comes from the precisionhe used to strike the exact point. Today although, he is skilled enough to use these techniques on trained students, they are extremely dangerous so much so that he would not even let them practice on each other. That time i used my arm, this time I’m going to punch. This is the point – on the throat. Don’t panic – gather yourself. Later. I’ll massage neck. What I demonstraited ia a punch here. This person is taller. If you try to punch in the stomach… … If he’s strong. Like that man over there, it wan’t be effective. So you aim a lower part of the body. Then next strike to the head. Use a double attack, one to get him down, and then finish him. Therefore you don’t need lo leat a bigger man like him. You could kick him in the groin … … but it’s not recommended as it would cause family problems. Dosin Sho life long study of Buddhism and the martial arts, led to the birth of a new fighting system, sustained by religious belief.
