Dian Xue (Dim Mak Death Touch) Kung fu of Attacking AcupointsDian Xue is more commonly called Dim Mak, Death Touch in the West.
The Touch of Death (or Death-Point Striking) refers to any martial arts technique that can kill using seemingly less than lethal force targeted at specific areas of the body.
The concept known as Dim Mak (simplified Chinese: 点脉 traditional Chinese: 點脈 pinyin: diǎnmài; literally “press artery”; Jyutping: dim mak), alternatively diǎnxué (simplified Chinese: 点穴 traditional Chinese: 點穴Smiliey traces its history to traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture.
Tales of its use are often found in the Wuxia genre of Chinese martial arts fiction.
Dim mak is depicted as a secret body of knowledge with techniques that attack pressure points and meridians, said to incapacitate or sometimes cause immediate or even delayed death to an opponent.
The concept of Dim Mak (Dian Xue) appears as a subset of Kung-fu styles, It is either Dian Mai or Dim Mak which are two Chinese words in two different dialects, meaning Dim “press” and Mak (Artery or Qui channel)There have been a number of martial artists claiming to practice the technique in reality, beginning in the 1960s with American eccentric Count Dante, who gave it the English name “The Death Touch”.
Dr Yang-Jwing Ming is also a practitioner, as well as Duan Bao Hua.
However, the subject of the death touch in real life is in much debate and controversy.
There have been a number of martial artists claiming to practice the technique in reality, beginning in the 1960s, when the term was advertised alongside the English translation “The Death Touch” by American eccentric Count Dante.
In 1985, an article in Black Belt magazine speculated that the death of Bruce Lee, in 1973, might have been caused by “a delayed reaction to a Dim-Mak strike he received several weeks prior to his collapse”.
Other authors, as well, have said the death of Bruce Lee may have been due to a “Quivering Palm technique” (alongside an article about instructor Wong Doc-Fai) to the effect that “dim mak does actually exist and is still taught to a few select kung fu practitioners.
” A 1986 book on qi identifies dim mak as “one of the secret specialities” of wing chun.
In ca.1990, Taika Seiyu Oyata founded the style of Ryū-te which involves “pressure point fighting” (Kyūshojutsu).
In the 1990s, karate instructor George Dillman developed a style that involves kyūshojutsu, a term that he identifies with Dim-Mak.
Dillman eventually went as far as claiming to have developed qi-based attacks that work without physical contact (“no-touch knockout” techniques), a claim that did not stand up to third-party investigation and was consequently denounced as fraudulent.
Also, during the late 1980s, Erle Montaigue (1949-2011) published a number of books and instruction videos on Dim Mak with Paladin Press.
Montaigue claims to be “the first Westerner to be granted the degree of ‘Master’ in taijiquan”, awarded by Master Wang Xin-Wu in 1985.
According to Montaigue’s own account, Dim-Mak is an aspect of traditional old Yang style Taji Quan which he began learning in 1978 from a master called Chiang Yiu-chun.
Montaigue stated this man was an illegal immigrant, making his existence difficult to verify.
Erle subsequently learned the remaining “qi disruptive” forms of Wudang Shan from Liang Shih-kan in 1995.
Paladin Press has other titles on the topic of Dim Mak, including Kelly (2001) and Walker and Bauer (2002), both with a foreword by Montaigue.
