Martial Fusion® is a Cross Training System developed by Guillermo Gomez, that blends Aikido, Kickboxing, Qigong, Yoga, and Meditation, into a unique physical and internal discipline based on the practice of 8 principles; breath, alignment, centering, coordination, fluidity, adaptability, balance, and awareness to ignite the human condition through the cultivation and magnification of higher energy levels unlocking our highest potential.
THE MARTIAL FUSION SYMBOL
The inverted triangle inside of a circle represents the "Third Eye", the energy center located at the center of the forehead, (the pituitary gland) as our center of deep insight, wisdom, intuition and transcendent consciousness. The energy of this symbol triggers our inner guidance that comes from the depths of our being, by cutting through illusions and revealing deeper truths beyond the mind. When this energy center is fully activated, both hemispheres of the brain, the creative and logical thinking function in a balanced and synchronized manner.
YOUR ENERGY IS THE HIGHEST CURRENCY
Martial Fusion training philosophy centers around being able to unlock our highest potential, which comes from the ability to tap into a continuous energy flow. When we reach high energetic levels, all of the sudden we are exposed to new ideas, or new dimensions if you want to look at it in that way. Our environment starts to change, and the reason is because we are the ones who are transforming ourselves into a capability that has greater reach.
8 PRINCIPLES OF MARTIAL FUSION
PRINCIPLE #1: BREATH
BREATH IS THE FOUNDATION OF ENERGY ACCESS
Breath power, also called "Kokyu" in Japanese, is a self-purification ritual of declogging the system and awakening the energy centers of the body while promoting the cultivation and circulation of KI (vital energy) through the entire system.
PRINCIPLE #2: ALIGNMENT
REFINE YOUR GEOMETRY THROUGH SELF-ALIGNMENT
Seeking self-alignment with our body is the practice of self-geometry. The way we function and perform depends upon the perfection of this geometry. Becoming aware of our present structure and refining it by consistent training, will allow the machine to function without any friction within itself.
PRINCIPLE #3: CENTERING
CENTERING WILL REVEAL THE DIRECTION TO FOLLOW
You must have an awareness of this center in order for you to move effectively in the world. The practice of deep breathing and self alignment makes us relax and drop all tension and anxiety and anything that is not real, revealing our center.
PRINCIPLE #4: COORDINATION
OPERATE YOUR MACHINE AS ONE UNIT
In order to maximize your power, you have to understand how and when to move all of your body parts simultaneously and in perfect synchronicity, so you can operate your machine as one unit, achieving maximum results with the minimum amount of effort.
PRINCIPLE #5: FLUIDITY
DO NOT PUSH THE RIVER - IT FLOWS BY ITSELF
Once we experience energy flowing without attachments or interruptions, in time and naturally, this state of being can be transferred to everything else we do, then everything in life becomes a meditation.
PRINCIPLE #6: ADAPTABILITY
THE ONLY CONSTANT IN LIFE IS CHANGE
Adaptability is the capacity to change and learn something new, to think on our feet, to be able to move through different structures. Adaptability is Freedom. The ability to adapt is not only for survival but for evolution and self development.
PRINCIPLE #7: BALANCE
BALANCE IS A MOVING TARGET
Balance is not a static thing - Balance is the capability to be connected with the here and now and make all kinds of measurements and assessments, making decisions and actions on how to keep rearranging yourself with all of the things coming your way - the obstacles and challenges you are facing in each moment.
MODULE #8: AWARENESS
PRACTICE YOUR MEDITATION
Zazen is considered the heart of meditation practice. The aim of zazen is just sitting, "opening the hand of thought," that is, suspending all judgmental thinking and letting words, ideas, images and thoughts pass by without getting involved in them and also becoming aware of conditioned patterns of thought and behavior, so that such patterns can be modified, eliminated or more efficiently put to use.
