The ability to take in and store vital energy comes under the general heading of chi kung. There are hundreds of methods of chi kung, including Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian sources in China. India and Tibet both had strong influences on chi kung in China. A great interchange took place between these countries, not only in trade, but also in culture and religious practice. Many Buddhist monks carried the teachings to China, and with them secrets of health and longevity. Since that time the Chinese have adapted and changed all that they have learned, and produced the multifaceted chi kung of today.

The main reasons for people performing chi kung can roughly be divided into three areas.

  • Health promotion/stress-free mind.
  • Longevity: chi kung advocates believe that correct and regular practice will ultimately lead to a healthy and extended life span.
  • Martial arts: the ability to generate tremendous power from chi kung training.

Doron Navon from Israel started training with Hatsumi Sensei in 1968 long before the “ninja-boom”. While in Japan he was also introduced to the Feldenkrais method by the Israeli physicist Moshe Feldenkrais who was an accomplished Martial Artist that came to Japan for a shorter visit. When Doron came back home to Israel in 1974 he deepened his knowledge in the Feldenkrais method directly under Dr Moshe Feldenkrais.

Doron says that the Feldenkrais method is a shortcut to the godan test. This has been confirmed by both Hatsumi Sensei and many other who have studied Taijutsu and Feldenkrais.
