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.

Meridians within the Body FREE SAMPLEThere are twelve main medians and 8 other special meridians within the human body. Meridians are similar to electrical wires or nerves. They run from the top of the head to the tips of the toes and fingers. 8 Pieces of Brocade - FREE SAMPLEThese exercises and methods have been practiced and studied for hundreds of years to help maintain good health, prevent and sometimes cure diseases, to calm the mind, and uplift the spirit of the person performing them. Ancient literature shows and explains body postures and exercise routines similar to the Eight Pieces of Brocade, but dating back roughly 2,100 years.Opening the Small Circulation The Small Circulation, Small Circle, or the Microcosmic Orbit, is the practice of circulating one’s internal energy (Qi or chi), within the human body. This illustration represents the awareness of energy flow throughout the Governing and Conception meridians; in this case, the fire path. These meridians are located on the center line of the body and in turn govern and regulate the other meridians. This practice has been considered to be the foundation of Internal Qigong. It was a fundamental step on the path of meditation training in ancient times. Over time, this practice has gradually been lost from many meditation traditions, and its importance diminished. Though meditation is popular today for relaxation, stress relief and general health, the ultimate goal for some people, is spiritual awareness and enlightenment. Small Circulation Meditation transform the body from weak to strong while training the mind to be calm and focused.
