View Full Version : Just recieved priming bioenergy
AWESOME is the word needed.
It's what i've been looking for in terms of applying cst to the combat arts.
Everything on the tape is brilliant, in particular the locomotion drills are amazzing. I've had a problem in that area for a while, I couldn't coordinate my punches and kicks with my whole body movement and at the same time breath properley. I think practising these drill is gonna help me a lot.
Have to go eat now, but i'll say more of my thoughts and ?s a bit later.

That's good to know, cause I plan to purchase a copy for myself. When you get a chance, I would like to hear a little more about the video.
Hey Turtle! I just wrote a near essay on the video for you and then my dam interenet connection went dead while it was processing the post, ahh.
I'll do my best again but bare with me i'm recovering from a night of drinking for the first time in over a year haha.
Okay, first of we have the upper body joint mobility drills, much like ww but with a few extra sophistications from the neck down to waist.
Next vibration drill/trinity breathing- like Scott says on the video these are much like chikung exercises but you must forget that and concentrate on integration of breathing movemnt and allignement rather any internal energy. These exercise are like doing waves with your arms and continuing the wave with the lower body by sinking down and then back up while concentrating on integration. I guess some people would say it's a bit like directing your mind through your movement.
Progressive tension exercises focusing on selective tension first around the shoulder joint, then the elbow joint and then the wrist. But as Scott says on the video, this is not an anotomically correct way to describe it, but I think a very practical way. If you have seen the softwork trailer, Scott perform a punch that would look unconventional to the conventional martial artist. This is the movement you focus on at first with these drills in a three step movement and then performing it in waves to create fluidity, but like Scott says, this is not possible to do, so rid your mind of that term and think density and plasticity.
Next is an exercise i'm not sure I fully understand as I was playing with the waves while watching lol. It looks like Scott is doing an invisible speed bag drill but focusing on different points of rotation of the arm, I think, to minimise delivery time of the movement.
Next, locomotion drills, which you will think are footwork drills till Scott corrects you and explains why. Not really in a good state to explain them, but understand that you will be impressed and practising them will considerably inprove your game.
Haha, yes, next a very amusing but incredibly effective way to create even relaxation throughout the body. It cured my headache this morning lol.
And to end we have solo soft work- you will be watching a master at work, don't mess with Scott, seriousley!
Phew, I hope that explains it to you. I'll add some more tommorow, i'm a bit groggy right now.
I seriousley recomend you purchase this tape, it is really barrier breaking.

I really want to thank you for responding. I assume that you are one like myself who is very interested in becoming a great fighter. Scott said it would be best to start with Priming Bioenergy and the 3dpp manual, an from your reply, it seems Priming Bioenergy will be a wise choice, and goes hand in hand with what Scott was saying. One last question, do you happen to have any other material from the fisticuffs series, was very interested in Weaponizing your Architecture, wondering if it would give me a better understanding of softwork an it just sounds like a must have.
No problem turtle, it's good to help out the tribe :)
No, I don't have any of the other vid's from the fisticuffs series, but at the beggining of priming bioenergy their are two scenario's showing and explaining the flow fighting concepts, and they look very good and I think i'll be getting that and weaponising your architecture.
Hope this helps man!
I began with the trinity breathing yesterday and i've nailed the single breath, so i'll go for the double breath today.
First thing I noticed was extreme heat travelling down my arms to my hands and then what seemed like a near flow state of mind, tottally absorbed in the movement.
I got up this morning and I fealt great, loads of energy and a positive mindset.
I really does feel like you are breathing with your arms.
Before that I spent two days working on my neck and shoulders to prepare for the neck roll.
I've fealt significant release, I spent at least two hours each day, and i've mastered the breath in the movements.
With the screw i'm compressing one side of the ribcage with shoulder that rolls forward and then the breath comes in naturally at the transition to the other side.
I've paid such close attention and taken slowly enough to get it so that the breath automatically sucks in as soon as the sternum pops back into place, which lasts less than a second, short and sharp.
Is it normal when you get major release to a heavily traumatised area, that you feel what feels like bolts of electricity shooting up through your body around the freed up area.
It was a bit intense at first but as I deepened my practise it died down and balanced itself.
Anyway, very pleased with my progress, and i'm sure i'll even more very soon.
