Soft martial arts

Those fighting arts whose defensive techniques are based upon not opposing force with force but rather upon yielding and redirecting an opponent’s force. Soft martial art strikes have no outward appearance of force but are devastatingly powerful, being based on chi and subtle body mechanics. Soft martial arts can be external or internal. Even the most ardent “hard” martial art system will have some soft techniques.

Because Dragon and Tiger Qigong is a simple and effective qigong practice, it is taught to students at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. Tracing the meridian lines helps our students to become more sensitive to both their own and their patients' chi and enables them to become better acupuncturists.
