Apopka, FL (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
Advanced Mind and Body Products, a subsidy of CAD Graphics, Inc., a graphic design company, has created unique 3D exercise charts that provide details about mechanics and illustrate relative body positioning of the individual exercises involved in martial arts, Chi Kung, yoga and various other alternative methods for fitness and wellbeing. Charts also include the history and theory behind specific exercises.
These charts can be used for self-enrichment, reference or as education aids for teachers of yoga, martial arts and other venues of health and wellness education. The charts focus on martial arts such as BaguaZhang, Pakua, Hsing Yi, Tai Chi, and others that offer benefits well beyond self-defense. Many of these methods improve core strength, relieve stress, and cultivate "chi" (life force). Other benefits of the exercises illustrated in the charts include enhanced flexibility, coordination, balance, awareness, and peaceful state of mind. Most of the exercises can be practiced almost anywhere and by anyone regardless of physical limitations.
“We have been compiling knowledge of these exercise methods for decades,” explains chart co-author Jim Moltzan, who along with other partners, have almost 30 years of experience in various martial arts, chi kung, yoga, and other mental/physical developmental. “We decided to journal them and make them available for others.”
Much of the knowledge presented in the charts have been gained from Chinese, Korean and American martial artists, doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and others of various backgrounds and abilities,” explains Moltzan. “This information can seem new or alternative to American culture, but in fact much of it has been passed on from previous generations of Eastern cultures.
Charts are available as 8.5" x 11" laminated hard copies or bundled into hard copy booklets, sent out via US Mail or UPS. Some charts can be purchased as pdf downloads to be viewed or printed. Free samples are also available for download. Visit http://www.advancedmindandbodyproducts.com for more information.
