POST 326 – 23JAN2016

EXERCISE AND STRATEGY:

THAN-TOC, DAO PHONG

Teaching of g.m phan hoang



(see attached pictures)
TECHNICAL TRAINING. This exercise aims to develop the rapidity and the precision of a hand technique called ‘Sword attack without sword’ from VIET-CHI-KIEM black-belt program of Vietnamese Art of The Sword. Advanced level will be taught by black-belt-teachers and red-belt-masters at diverse Spring 2016 Training Sessions.

STRATEGY IN COMBAT AND IN LIFE.
In response to the attack of an aggressor who uses the stratagem of Dương-Oai, Diễu-Võ (Showing off power and bullying) the solution could be applying this Strategy of Thần-Tốc, Đảo-Phong (Attack like surprising fire, retreat like unnoticed wind), this means attacking by surprise with full  force and speed, then retreat like a wind blowing away –then come back hitting at a  flank, and so on, likely in the following scenario:
1.Stay still like a mountain (showing no sign) while the enemy is showing off his power to impress you.
2.In a sudden, with full force, speed and precision, hit his vital point, cutting off his rhythm, causing painful effect.
3.Retreat (in the blink of an eye, change direction) and hit his ‘tail’ (groin, legs)
4.Change direction and hit his ‘tail/ or head’ in a way that put the enemy in situation of not knowing where to defense next.
5.Jump away to a distance out of reach of the enemy and prepare for the next move.

HISTORY.

The case of the  Russo-Japanese War  can illustrate the advantage of this Strategy of Than-Toc, Dao-Phong

The Russo-Japanese War
8 February 1904 – 5 September 1905
Tsarist Russia, as a major imperial power, had ambitions in the East. Russia sought a warm-water port on the Pacific Ocean for their navy and for maritime trade. Vladivostok was operational only during the summer, whereas Port Arthur, a naval base in Liaodong Province leased to Russia by China, was operational all year.
Nicholas II held the Japanese in contempt as "yellow monkeys", and he took for granted that the Japanese would simply yield in the face of Russia's superior power.
Japan issued a declaration of war on 8 February 1904. However, three hours before Japan's declaration of war was received by the Russian government, the Japanese Imperial Navy attacked the Russian Far East Fleet at Port Arthur. Tsar Nicholas II was stunned by news of the attack. He could not believe that Japan would commit an act of war without a formal declaration, and had been assured by his ministers that the Japanese would not fight. When the attack came, according to Cecil Spring Rice, first secretary at the British Embassy, it left the Tsar "almost incredulous".
The war concluded with the Treaty of Portsmouth, mediated by US President Theodore Roosevelt. The complete victory of the Japanese military surprised world observers. /.

THE FORGOTTEN GENERAL

There are two kinds of generals. Those who won battles but failed to make lasting peace and those who failed to make lasting war but saved peace. In most cases people often admire those who have made their children die and forget those who have saved their lives.

VIET-CHI-KIEM
 Some codes and manners.   .
   CODE .  Following are some most  important  points.
Respect is a very important aspect in the practice of VietChiKiem: We show respect to our teacher and our partners; we show respect to the place and to the audience; we show respect to our sword.  In giving or in receiving a sword we hold it with both hands, the edge turned toward the giver.
Self-Respect is not simply a moral principle but for us it is a practical way of being ourselves. Who he lacks self-respect lack moral.
Orientation and Direction are important to the practice of VietChiKiem. Doing our exercises in a natural setting (i.e. fields, hill, forest, lake, mountain)  we avoid facing directly toward the sun, especially at sunrise and sunset. In a training room (dao-duong, dojo) the direction we are facing is called by our code the direction of  the ‘South’. This helps a great deal to the correct orientation of our movements and sequences.
Numbers are part of our Code, this has nothing to do with the esoteric numerology.
Numbers are symbolic meaning and mathematical organization. The most used numbers in VietChiKiem are:
3   6   8  9  12  14  18  27  28  54  64  108 

Counting.  When doing exercises we count up to 9 (not 10) then the counting continue with the next person .
Sitting  with the body right up (in the posture called ‘Pyramid’).
Good manners. Drawing , sheathing, returning the sword, sitting down, rising up, moving forward, turning backward, etc., all these gestures are codified in details for the sake of good manners.
Sounds are codified in our practice  as:    
  A,  O,  I,  Tse,  U
Hand Seals. A series of twenty four hand-seals have been standardized by Grand Master Phan-Hoang for the use of VIET-CHI SYSTEM as a symbolic language, out of any religious meaning.
Seal of VietChiKiem. The Seal for VietChiKiem is under the code name S2 as shown below.
S2 – THE LUCIDITY - TUỆ GIÁC ẤN



Form: thumb-forefinger

Meaning: have a brilliant mind and lucidity

(French version)
Code et bonnes manières.

   
CODE. Les points les plus importants.

Le respect est un aspect très important dans la pratique de VietChiKiem: Nous montrons du respect à notre professeur et nos partenaires, nous montrons du respect à l'endroit où nous pratiquons et à notre l'auditoire, et nous montrons du respect à notre sabre. En donnant ou en recevant un sabre nous le tenons à deux mains, la lame tourné vers le donneur.

Le respect de soi n'est pas simplement un principe moral, mais pour nous c'est un moyen pratique d'être nous-mêmes. Celui qui manque de respect-de-soi manque aussi la  morale.

Orientation et direction sont importantes pour la pratique de VietChiKiem. En faisant  nos exercices dans un cadre de la nature (par exemple à des champs, colline, forêt, lac, montagne), nous évitons de tourner la face directement vers le soleil, surtout au lever et au coucher du soleil. Dans une salle d’entrainement (dao-duong, dojo), la direction à laquelle nous sommes tournés est appelé, par convention, la direction du «Sud». Ceci aide beaucoup à la bonne orientation de nos mouvements.

Les Nombres font partie de notre Code, ceci n'a rien à voir avec la numérologie.
Les chiffres sont d’une signification symbolique et traduisent l’esprit mathématique organisationnel. Les numéros les plus utilisés dans le VietChiKiem sont les suivants:
3 6 8 9 12 14 18 27 28 54 64 108

Comptage. Quand nous faisons des exercices souvent nous comptons jusqu'à 9 (et non pas 10), puis la prochaine personne continuera de la même façon.
Position d’assise : le corps se tient droit  (dans la posture appelée «Pyramide»).
Les bonnes manières. Dégainer, retourner le sabre, s’assoir, se lever, se déplacer en avant, tourner en arrière, etc.. tous ces gestes sont codifiés dans les détails pour avoir de la bonne manière et prestance.
Les sons sont codifiées dans notre pratique comme suit : A, O, I, Tse, U

Les Sceaux de la main. Une série de vingt-quatre sceaux a été codifiée par le Grand Maître Phan Hoang -pour l'utilisation dans le VIET-CHI SYSTEM comme un langage symbolique, hors de toute signification religieuse.
