Pressure points in dim mak kung fu is used for self defence and healing, they are included in all Golden Lion’s programmes. Previously an ancient secret taught to few people in the martial arts, dim mak is an art and science that guides you towards a healthier lifestyle by using ancient Taoist Wisdoms. These wisdoms have a recorded history of over 3,000 years. They have been rigorously tested and proven and are today testified by many people for their powers.
One aspect of that wisdom is the art and science of pressure points, which is also known as dim mak, dian xue or vital points striking.
There are two aspects to the art of pressure points: one is for healing and the other for self defence.The Two Dragons of Dim Mak by Grandmaster Dr Pier Tsui-Po is an excellent book that explains both the healing and defence aspect of dim mak.
Look into your pressure points teacher carefully, choose Golden Lion
The following piece from the classic Tao Te Ching written by Lao Tzu 2500 years ago tells you the reasons why you should search for the source — the traditional master.
“Follow the ancient way
To master the present
Knowing the ancient way
Is the key to the Tao”
Pressure point secrets must be taught to you by teachers of distinction, having learnt the secrets personally from those before them. Unfortunately many teachers today are too lazy to learn properly, instead they rely on bad books, bad magazine articles or a short day course.
At Golden Lion, our eminent teachers who best know dim mak pressure points have the following three experiences:
- Have trained in a traditional Chinese kung fu system
- Is a registered traditional Chinese medicine doctor, PLUS
- Have spent at least 20 years or more learning and practising under the same system.
The teachings of these eminent masters give us direction and purpose. They teach us that in order to live a happy, healthy life we need to be in a state of harmony. We do that by balancing our Yin and Yang energies. Our lives are patterned around natural laws. Once we know how to follow these laws, life can be lengthened and improved, diseases resisted and overcome.
The aim of your teacher is to help you become a better person by teaching you exactly how you can transform your thoughts, attitudes, behaviours, training, and life. To do that you need a founding philosophy. The philosophy of Taoism is the basis for martial arts, especially kung fu and dim mak.

Pressure points for health and healing
The study and practice of pressure points in kung fu also prevents illness and improves life.
We know that we have our own healing potential, but most teachers fail to teach us exactly how we can unleash, nurture and use that potential. Health isn’t just the absence of illness, it’s a philosophy of life — the WAY you live your life, your emotions, your thoughts and your behaviour. These shape your health and your illness.
Many of us are victims of our lifestyle. We’ve come to accept many things, which are injurious to our mental and physical health.
How often have we caught a cold, pulled a muscle, felt drained of energy — for no reason whatsoever? And we thought we were quite fit and strong.
You see, our body has an alarm clock that rings loud when disease is about to invade. The problem is: We don’t Listen!
Far worse is that some people listen, take notice, but Don’t Do Anything About It — until it’s too late.
It is our belief that today’s instructors should teach self-healing skills to their pupils. They way students can have better health and fitness and learn how to rest and recuperate. All these skills combined will build better prospects for us, for now and for the future.
