There are some people who argue that it originated in the religious disciplines of the Buddhist patriarch Bodhidharma, who traveled to the Chinese temple called the Shao-lin-ssu, in the sixth century. Although this is no more than an unsubstantiated legend, it seems certain that some kind of Chinese hand-to-hand combat was beginning to develop in that early period.
During the centuries that followed, these combat techniques were the subject of study and refinement. They have been passed down in various traditions to the present time. The basic principle of Taiki-ken is to leap toward an attacking opponent and simultaneously to defend yourself and down him with a powerful attack.
Taiki-ken lacks the mild qualities of sports, since it assumes that, if the person does not down his opponent with an effective attack, he will be quickly downed himself. But rashness is out of place even in the necessarily speedy actions of Tiaki-ken.
The ability to make one attack spell defeat for the opponent only develops when the individual is able to manifest the powers he derives from mastering the spiritual and technical aspects that Chinese martial-arts specialists have perfected over the centuries.
Ki is an explosive power that must be instantaneously and unconsciously manifested by the entire body at the moment of attack or defense, Without the power of ki, the ability to overcome an opponent with a single attack cannot be expected. In Taiki-ken, training begins with standing Zen discipline, by means of which the individual develops the power of ki within himself.

In addition to standing Zen, Taiki-ken employs two other training methods, called hai and neri, which cultivate the ability to use the power of ki when actual combat makes its manifestation essential. Other training methods include kumite practice combat and tanhsu a composite training method using everything learned in all other training methods. Throughout all of these training methods, one never uses the kinds of forms hsing in Chinese; kata in Japanese found in other martial arts.
In actual combat, there is no way of knowing what kind of attack the opponent will attempt. Buy It Now.
