In dim mak‘s ancient China, the healing arts and the martial arts went hand in hand. Then martial arts was practised more for survival and less as a recreation, although its benefits in maintaining health was always given full recognition.
Injuries, both minor and serious, resulting from life or death confrontations or from practice sessions were common place. It is clear that anyone who did not understand how to treat injuries and prevent illness were not going to get very far as a martial artist.
The old masters were also adept in the arts of nutrition, devising diets that would enhance the health and performance of their students. Training was often rigorous, everyday, and up to 8 hours a day, and only those in the very best condition of health could keep up with the relentless pace of training.
It is easy to see why superior skills in the healing arts would often translate into victory in the combat arena and the success of a school. Hence these secrets were just as closely guarded as their combat techniques. Even today, where competitive sports is concerned, little has changed. For example, professional football clubs boast of their superior team of physiotherapists, dietitians and medical experts.
