The Poison Fan Street Combat system provides an even playing
field for the small woman against a substantially larger male or female attacker. Thus, physical expressive martial creativity
is the key element in which the female poison fan stylist uses in failing any aggressive assault. Therefore, determining martial
creativity is exposed as many forms of significance by the poison fan stylist.
These forms of significance are as follows:
Size, Weight, & Height Differential,
2. Verbal & Non-Verbal Confrontation,
3. Weapon & Non-Weapon Confrontation,
Single & Multiple Defensive Confrontation,
5. Paved & Non-Paved Area Confrontation,
6. Cold & Warm Weather
7. Dry & Wet Weather Condition Confrontation,
8. Indoor & Outdoor Confrontation.
each form is accessed individually and as a collective group in any violent confrontation. Yet, these eight forms can be broken
down by the poison fan stylist as primary and secondary in significance. The secondary forms consist of those obvious to the
practitioner before any confrontation occurs.
They are; A. Paved & Non-Paved Area Confrontation,
Cold & Warm Weather Confrontation,
C. Indoor & Outdoor Confrontation,
D. Dry & Wet Weather Confrontation.
all secondary significance suggests natural mental aptitude of observation and visual perception. This is not to suggest that
the confrontation physical environment cannot change from dry to wet; cold to warm, indoor to outdoor, or any combination
of such! Yet, it does suggest that the poison fan stylist must be creatively adaptive in her defensive environmental counter-attacking
So, from the house to the car; the kitchen to the living room to the back outdoor deck. The front
door to the front porch in the rain, snow, sleet, or hot summer sun. She must be well versed in effective physical expressive
This leads us to the forms of primary significance.
They are as follows:
A. Size, Weight, &
B. Verbal & Non-Verbal Confrontation
C. Weapon & Non-Weapon Confrontation
D. Single &
Multiple Weapon Confrontation
Primary significance forms A-D immediately suggest that the female poison fan stylist
must physically express devastatingly brutal and potentially fatal streetwise defensive counter-striking skills.
examine the multiple weapon (handgun) disarm senerio as the female stylist attempts opening her car door at a local store
parking lot at night.
Note: [Let’s be truthful about any weapon attack. If it starts at medium too long range. It
can be effective in abducting any defender]! Only at close range does the stylist have a chance at using their respective
street combat skills in failing an immediate attack!
Da. Left & Right Hand Rules For Trapping Motion:
let’s acknowledge that;
1. [If the female defender is left handed; then her left hand will produce a small circle
outward trapping motion].
2. [If she is right handed, her right hand will produce the small circle outward trapping
Now let us assume that our small female defender is left-handed.
The two attackers are at her left and
right sides respectively, holding their hands guns at her head on either side. The attacker on her right side holds his pistol
with his right hand at her right temple area. The attacker on her left side holds his pistol with his right hand just over
the top of her left ear at the middle side of her face at the left brain.
In this particular attacking case, the left-handed
female defender makes rule #1. or the [Left Hand Rule NULL & Void] and the RIGHT HAND RULE APPLIES!
Why? Both attackers
are right handed and holding their hand-gun weapons in their right hands at her head on oppoiste sides respectively. The attacker
on her right has his weapon on the frontal facial side of her body at the temple area. The typical left hand rule would push
the attacker’s weapon away from her face with her right hand toward the car, or into the car.
Thus, her typical
trapping motion would be as follows:
A. Her right hand will execute a forward inward
parrying trapping motion.
Her left hand will execute the small circle outward trapping motion.
This in turn leaves her open to the attacker’s
left fist assualt; and
C. The attacker on her left side would have enough time to disharge is weapon, injuring her
due to her head moving slightly backward; then forward. Thus, the left hand rule would get her fatally injured in this attack
Therefore, the right hand rule applies, even though she is left handed in this particular case. Yet, this
typical trapping motion has to be modified to fit this special multiple-attack situation.
Thus, this typical trapping motion
would be as follows:
AA. She would execute at right circular outward trapping motion against the attacker on her right;
BB. Execute a simultaneous left hand inward parrying motion for the attacker on her left side. Pushing the attacker’s
pistol toward or onto the car.
This would position both attackers’ right arms and legs to her outside respectively.
Yet, it would also allow the attacker on her right to discharge his weapon as it passed across her right facial area; starting
at her temple and cover the complete right side of her face!
X. The poison fan female stylist must execute
a right circular upward outside trapping motion, rising the pistol at her temple above her head as she;
Y. Executes a quick
left circular inward push trapping parry simulteaneously as her head turns to her right. These simultaneous trapping motions
will position both attackers to her outside right and left respectively. This will turn both attackers waists away from her
and inward to their left.
Thus, preventing both attackers from countering across their bodies.
of the attackers outside, right-side bodily areas are then exposed to counter-attack.
Now let us finish this multiple weapon
As the female defender simultaneously executes her blocking traps with both hands. Her head
turns right and waist whips right as she delivers a crushing right spin thrust kick to the attacker’s lead right knee,
Thus, leaning her attacker inward toward her as she quickly slant slips her right thumb [palm outward
& counter-clockwise flip palm down] into the attackers’ thumb grip on the pistol. She then executes a palm down
push on the top of the hand-gun, single-palm pressing downward as she claws the attackers’ thumb counter-clockwise and
outward. Therefore, press-clawing the gun from the attacker’s hand as she turns her attention to the left side attacker.
The poison fan stylist now pulls the attackers’ trapped right arm forward slightly with her left hand. She quickly shifts
onto her right leg and delivers a crushing left thrusting side kick to the attacker’s right leg lead knee.
As she executes a circular right open-palm counter-clockwise pushing palm down pressing strike to the
top of the pistol. Simultaneously lodging her right thumb between the attacker’s right thumb grip as she pushes outward
with her left hand trap against the attackers’ wrist and tiger claw pulls the trapped gun hand at the wrist backward.
Quickly pulling downward on the trapped pistol to dislodge it from the attacker’s hand into her right hand.
then covers out and fires one shot into the air to alert the authorities as she screams for help from the store clerk or passersby!
What if the attackers each held their handguns in their left hands in this senerio? What if the attacker on the left held
his gun in the right hand and the right side attacker held his gun in his left hand in their attempted abduction, robbery,
Thus, it is very clear from the above statements that martial creativity in adaptive skills execution
and application give any stylist, male or female the advantage in countering defense against attempted weapons attack!
The Wudang Analogy:
In conclusion there exists several major points in this multiple handgun attack senerio. [Remember
that each and every hand gun attack situation is different and must be taken with precise precaution in defensive counter-attacking
expression]. The martial stylist must train with the reality of possible or probable minor failure in attempting weapons disarming.
Whether the counter defensive is gun defense, knife defense, club defense or some derivation of each!
We will start the
analogy with the understanding that the above counter multiple handgun defensive will not effectively work if the physical
execution of the above techniques are not followed basically to the letter.
To prove this, let us consider the following:
The female stylist’s head must turn right in order to avoid possible discharge of the left side attacker’s gun
[either by mistake, accident, or intention] to fail the countering attempt. If the gun did discharge, then there is at least
a 50% chance that the attacker will shoot his partner in crime. This is due to the right side attacker’s body position
in respect to the female defender executing her right hand trapping motion! [Please refer to ‘Y’ above for a complete
discription of prior statement]!
2. The female defender must consider that her right side attackers’ weapon has at
least a 50% chance of discharge. So, the possibility of the right side attacker shooting his left side partner is reasonably
3. The female defender must be street combat proficient in the skills and knowledge of Wugong Motion.
female defender must execute her right-wrist trapping technique ending with her right-hand perpendicular to the attackers’
right wrist holding the handgun.
If this does not occur, then the possible probability of her attacker turning his trapped
wrist into her arm and discharging the weapon is very likely!
Thus, allowing the attacker to succeed in this explosively
violent attempt of probable fatality!
So, the female defender must trap with the knowledge, skill, and application of the
Shaolin concept of ‘Shooting Zen’, combined with the application of Eagle Claw, and Qin Na tools! This is of the
so-called external school of martial thought. Yet, the female defender cannot depend on just the external in such of an explosively
She must also have the knowledge, skill and applications of some theory and methods within the internal
martial school of thought.
They are as follows;
A. Wugong theory, & concepts;
B. The Wudang knowledge of
Yin / Yang theory in relation to combat;
C. Wudang concepts of waist & stepping motion;
D. Wudang soft-hard and
hard-soft motion dynamics;
E. Wudang breath control methods:
5. The female defender must quickly & skillfully
execute each countering motion with patience, internal strength, and devastation of power!
Finally I will conclude
this analogy with interpretations from Excerpts From The Theregata Sutta!
Subha & the Libertine:
Subha, an arahant
nun living alone in the forest, is hounded by a man who lusts after her. The "special gift" that she finally hands to him
instantly brings about a change in his heart!

like those of a sprite in the

I don't even know what that passion would be,

I don't even

Defense Against A Two Handed Wrist Grab:
1. Mirror your stance to the attackers
lead leg attempt.
2. As he grabs your right right wrist with both hands, deliver a trail leg frontal stomping kick to the
attacker's lead knee breaking it and contour to the lead knee shin for further damage.
3. Deliver with a right looping

"REVIEW OF HERBS FOR IMPROVING COGNITIVE FUNCTION":
practices of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, numerous plants have been used to treat cognitive disorders, including neurodegenerative
diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). An ethnopharmacological approach has provided leads to identifying potential new
drugs from plant sources, including those for cognitive disorders. Many drugs currently available in Western medicine were
originally isolated from plants, or are derived from templates of compounds isolated from plants. Some anticholinesterase
(anti-ChE) alkaloids isolated from plants have been investigated for their potential in the treatment of AD, and are now in
clinical use. Galantamine, isolated from several plants including Lycoris radiata Herb, which was used in traditional Chinese
medicine (TCM), is licensed in the United Kingdom for the treatment of mild to moderate AD. Various other plant species have
shown pharmacological activities relevant to the treatment of cognitive disorders, indicating potential for therapeutic use
in disorders such as AD. This article reviews some of the plants and their active constituents that have been used in traditional
Ayurvedic medicine and TCM for their reputed cognitive-enhancing or antiageing effects. Plants and their constituents with
pharmacological activities that may be relevant for the treatment of cognitive disorders, including enhancement of cholinergic
function in the central nervous system (CNS), anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities, are discussed".

DRAGON KENPO KARATE
ORANGE BELT FOUNDATION CURRICULUM
Hutchison Dragon Kenpo System:
The original Ed. Hutchison DK Orange Belt Curriculum consists of “Twelve”
Techniques. Eight Orange, and Four Advanced Orange; with most of the preceeding ones considered variations of the first or
original beginning techniques!
The Clandestine Black Dragon Kenpo Karatejutsu Orange Belt Curriculum actually defines
the original technique as the basic concept; and each variant technique as a separate individual concept. Each individual
variant concept is again redefined by being assigned a basic 5 animal-fist analogy; with the option of the floating-fist of
the eagle’s clawing talon-fist as the sixth analytical striking, trapping, clawing, and gouging concept.
the DKKCI Orange Belt Master Study is defined as the following defensive counter-attacking concepts per technique;
Original Ed. Hutchison Standard DK Technique;
2. [ Standard Technique executed as Stand-Up Jujitsu];
3. [ Standard Technique
executed as Combat-Judo];
4. [ Standard Technique executed as Contact-Manipulation];
5. [ Standard executed as Strangulation
6. [ Standard Technique executed as Aiki-Projection].
The techniques numbered 2-6 are further defined
by being assigned their respective animal-fist blocking, striking, clawing, and gouging, analogies. This gives us 1 original
+ 5 = 6 x 8 = 48 Standard + [4+20] =24 Advanced = 72 Techniques Total:
They are as follows;
Stand-Up Jujitsu; Dragon’s Head:
2. Combat-Judo; Single Finger Snake Hooked Spear:
3. Contact Manipulation; Crane’s
4. Strangulation; Leopard Fist:
5. Aiki-Projection; Tiger Fist:
Each of the other techniques are
given this same definition concept in execution, application, and delivery. They are now ready for physical usage as variation
of the original DK Standard technique, or individualized as separate gong fu, qin-na, jujitsu, judo, karate-jutsu, and aiki-jutsu,
techniques for producing their own respective derivatives.
Separated, the techniques are now, below the surface to
be re-defined as not only combining traditional kenpo / kempo / chuan fa, circular blocking and linear striking; but as circular
blocking and circular striking combinations as well.
These defensive combinations can now be expressed under any given
counter-attacking situation. Thus, producing defensive speed-blocking and strategic speed-striking, combinations! So, now
the similarities of modern day Chinese, Okinawan, Kara-Ho, American, Kosho Ryu, and Shaolin Chuan Fa / Kempo / Kenpo etc,
can be expressively seen within our Black Dragon Kenpo Defensive Arsenal.
Therefore, proving the Orange Belt as
the true foundation of all kenpo upper and lower extremity separate and combined motion analogies! So, Dragon Kenpo creates
it's substyle of Clandestine Black Dragon Kenpo Karatejutsu.
Now , if you have not figured why, 72 techniques to the
Clandestine Black Dragon Kenpo Karatejutsu Orange Belt? The answer may expose some clarity if you consider Shaolin Gung Fu
History! Our CBDKKJ 72 Orange Belt Techniques honor the Founding of the Original Ed. Hutchison Dragon Kenpo as it was derived
from Shaolin Gung Fu in representation of Shaolin's original 'Jin Jing Zhong' or "Training Methods of 72 Arts of Shaolin"!
