POISON HAND TECHNIQUES OF THE FIVE ELEMENTS

The Five Animal Dim Mak form is what is known as a "perfect kata." By which it is meant that it is balanced between the aspects of Yin and Yang and conforms to the Laws of the Five Elements. First, it is a formal martial arts exercise. Second, it teaches techniques for applying the major “fists” of the martial arts system of which it is a part. Third, it teaches the vital and fatal points of the human upon which to apply these fists. Fourth, that these movements are not only martial and combative in nature, but also are therapeutic for the associated organs represented by the symbolic five animals, which represent the creative and destructive cycles of the Five Elements of Chinese medicine. Fifth, that it teaches all these things, anatomy, body movement and footwork, deadly fists and therapeutic massage, simultaneously and on an intuitive level that cannot be fully explained, only experienced by performing the exercise many times. This form is considered one of the ultimate self-defense forms in the Martial Arts. It is specifically intended for high ranking and skilled practitioners and must be practiced hundreds of times to be executed with fluidity, strength, and precision.

On the Instructional DVD

Sifu Jerry Cook demonstrates and teaches the fundamental Five Element Fist of Hsing-i Chuan:

  • The short, rapid, linear striking of Fire.
  • The crashing and pounding of the wave-like Water fist.
  • The whipping, encircling movement of the Wind fist.
  • The driving, hammering Earth fist.
  • And the twisting movements of Wood.

This form, like 18 TIGERS DIM MAK, is considered one of the ultimate self-defense forms in the Martial Arts. It is specifically intended for high ranking and skilled practitioners and must be practiced hundreds of times to be executed with fluidity, strength, and precision.

About Sifu Jerry Cook

This is the second of a series developed by Shaolin Wu-Tang Master Jerry Cook, an associate of Grandmaster Ron Pierce for the Pierce Family Poison Hand System. This training manual provides a unique and innovative approach to self-defense instruction.

There are many instructional videos on the market. But, not everyone has a DVD player. Sometimes you want to look a detail up in a book, but it doesn’t provide enough information on direction or is unclear in its explanation. Here the two are combined. The DVD has only the form shown in this book. It is too short to stand alone, since it does not explain the significance of the vital and fatal points. It does, however, provide a demonstration of how the "kata" or formal exercise is practiced as well as the applications of each technique. A book, for all its detail, cannot adequately show movement. Thus, both are necessary and form a proper unit for study and self-instruction. Or, it may serve as a reference and guide for traditional Dojo training.
