Martial arts typically classed as “internal” all employ similar, if not identical, methods of power generation. While this power is often couched in flowery, poetic talk and culturally specific idiomatic expressions, there’s nothing other-worldly or supernatural about it. It’s real and tangible personal magic gained through consistent rational practice. If you think you feel it, you don’t. There is no grey area.
The cultural symbolic and linguistic barriers make if difficult, if not problematic, when we set out to learn these skills. By shifting our paradigm, and using language that allows us to understand what’s really going on, we can develop these skills much more quickly and truly begin to enhance our performance in the skills required for internal martial arts. This is what it means to be "RMAX Powered" - using the innovative technology, tools and talents to accelerate your practice.
