New instructional video: 'The destruction of martial arts (thinking) by science'

Words of guidance by (Sifu/Master) Marcus Schüssler: This video is not for those who want to live a martial arts dream. The train of thought in this video disrupts minds and opens doors, you cannot close anymore – once they have been opened - the doors of truth and simplicity. So be careful

Workshop in Lünen Westfalia (Biao-Zhi Selbstbehauptung durch Verteidigung e.V.) 24.06.2017 – teaching that martial art terms soft/hard are confusing and misleading. These terms are an expression of human perception and are not conducive for better understanding of what is necessary to improve efficacy. The participants were made to feel the difference without any martial technique.


The term ‘family’ in martial arts

Particularly in Asian martial arts the term 'Family' or 'Family style' is maintained even today. Wrong expectations due to the false setting of the terms provide human misunderstandings at large. This article will help to bring more transparency to the terms and to cleaner set the correct perimeter.

To all combat sportspersons/martial artists – if the visual perception is the foundation of the fighting strategy, then this test shows the limits of all that, what is being presented in films or other media in an unrealistic fashion.

Valuable quote for martial artists by Albert Einstein:

You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother.


Valuable quote for martial artists by E.F. Schumacher (Economist)/Albert Einstein:

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction."


Lifestyle versus philosophy - or how the IUEWT brought old worldviews from martial arts into a new life

The concept of philosophy from Wikipedia: [In philosophy (Greek φιλοσοφία philosophía, Latinized philosophia, literally means "love of wisdom") is an attempt to interpret and understand the world and human existence. From other studies it differs in that it is not limited to a particular area or a particular methodology, but is characterized by the nature of their problems and their particular approach to their various subject areas.] Nowadays the concept of philosophy is likely used to not only represent certain ideologies, but also (even ideologically) to mediate or to spread, so that many people pursue and live the same philosophy (the negative effect such as power control, etc. are not an issue here!). In general, philosophy takes only place in the spiritual / mental realm of man.

In the classical martial arts of Asia the concept of philosophy plays an important role ever since. The best-known philosophies from this area are Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. The original task of philosophy here is to integrate craftsmanship or technical realizations into a greater mental concept, whom everything follows (analogous to the above explanation from Wikipedia: the philosophy of martial arts is the phenomenon of interpreting combat and make it understand in order to deduce fundamental wisdom).

What is different with the IUEWT training concept?

The IUEWT teaches two logical martial arts from different cultural backgrounds: Wing Tsun, which is native to China, and Escrima, which has its roots in the Philippines. However, both martial arts despite their cultural different income have something in common: both martial arts aim for the logical efficiency of the body as a basis for an optimal self defense.

With only a few exceptions, the combat sports or martial art styles try to distinct themselves by a maximum by highlighting their uniqueness in a particular area. As the combat sports or martial art styles are exercised by real humans, it is also the human factor of an intended uniqueness, which serves as a strong driving force to achieve a superior position in front of a broader public. At the same time, the presentation of the uniqueness in correlation to the exercise of a combat sports or martial art discipline are also supposed to indicate a certain supremacy on a personal, social, or economic level. New styles emerge due to this strong demarcation, because any deviation from a previously existing uniqueness represents a new stylistic variance, hence a new style. As constantly young people come into this play anew, they also have a tendency toward achieving uniqueness and so new styles are created, by minimal or maximum differences to the previous form.

Chi-Sao in Wing Tsun – lived taoism and systematic learning of fighting strategies combined in one exercise

Chi-Sao (translated ‚clinging arms‘), an exercise developed from traditional fighting arts is seen from today’s neurophysiological view is the only exercise that can really program basic behaviorial changes. The sublime objective, to learn and establish control over oneself and by this over the opponent is a process that needs decades of practice if the objective is put very high.
