"Enjoy 'Winning Fights', and remember that fighting, while sometimes unavoidable, should be the last rather than the first thing we do in a confrontation." Wally Simpson, Martial Artist - Chinese Medicine Practitioner
Years ago when I was preparing for my 3rd Degree Black Belt - I was told to study the Dim Mak as I could appreciate it even more as a medical pratitioner. For over a year I emersed myself in this fascinating ancient art that has both healing elements such as Acupunture & Qigong - but also deadly elements such as the Dim Mak commonly referred to as the Death Touch. In Chinese Medicine you must know about both healing & destructive elements. You can't learn to destroy unless you first know to heal in this view.
When writing "Winning Fights" - I corresponded with Master Wally Simpson. He co-authored The Encyclopedia of Dim-Mak and practices Chinese Medicine in Australia. His text was invaluable when I studied the background of Dim Mak. He is a great guy & agreed to provide a review for my book. His review was actually longer than the publishers included as he is passionate about Chinese Healing Arts.
