The Japan Sumo Association just held its first ever drug test. They decided to do this after a Russian sumo wrestler was arrested last month for possession of marijuana.
And guess who got nailed in the drug test.
Two more Russians. Namely, brothers “Roho” (Boradzov Feliksovich) and “Hakurozanb” (Baradzov Feliksovich).
Now, I didn’t administer the drug test – but this Fure-cat tends to think one of two things about this situation:
1. The Russians were set up because of nationalists who don’t want their sacred sport corrupted anymore with GaiJin blood
2. The Russians just don’t get it that there are many ways to celebrate in Japan – all of which are limited to being drunk on sake.
I, myself, have tasted sake a couple times, and believe me, it’s nothing to write home about. The same can be said of eating raw squid, octopus and horse meat.
So maybe this is a third reason for the Russians using weed. If I had to live on what they may be forced to eat each day, I may reach for something much stronger, too.
But being I am not subjected to sushi, sashimi and sake – I prefer to get high on life itself. From deep breathing and exercises that open the meridians and promote greater chi flow.
By the way, one good reason (among many) NOT to use marijuana is that it reverses the flow of chi in your meridians. Not a good thing, me thinks.
When your meridians are open, disease and sickness leave you alone. So do the pangs of old age, weakness and lethargy. So it’s a good idea to follow exercise programs that open you up rather than close you down.
Two of my favorites, both of which come from China, where they don’t have any dope smoking sumo rasslers, are the Chinese Long-Life System and Dao Zou.
Many people wonder what the difference is between the two programs, as both of them lead to greater health and longevity.
First, the Chinese Long-Life System emphasizes pressure to various acupuncture points. In fact, there are three that, if massaged each day, can dramatically improve your health.
Second, in Chinese Long-Life System, you are given a few dozen different exercises that hit every muscle in your body from head to toe.
In Dao Zou, the objective is to rewind your mind, reduce stress and improve balance through reverse training. When you train in reverse you improve the functioning of your kidneys – and many of today’s diseases: senility, Alzheimers, osteoporosis, sexual dysfunction, weakness in the knees, and so on – are due, in part, to weakening kidneys.
I realize in America you won’t hear what I’m saying from too many M.D.’s. But if you were to speak with an acupuncturist or doctor of Chinese medicine – you’d find him agreeing on what I say.
The kidneys are virtually ignored in western society. We think of the heart and occasionally the lungs – but the kidneys are HUGE in Chinese medicine. And when they weaken the rest of the body, including the heart and lungs, start to weaken as well.
When you do Dao Zou, your kidneys strengthen which will then show in greater leg strength, a calmer mind and a better memory. Your kidneys control short-term memory – your heart long term memory. This, in part, is why those with senility and beginning stages of Alzheimers have no trouble remembering what they did 50 years ago – they just cannot recall what you said a minute ago.
As your kidneys get stronger, the overflow of chi moves to your heart – and your heart regulates, among many other things, the strength of your long-term memory. So don’t be surprised if you begin to remember things from your past that happened a long, long time ago – if you’re doing the Dao Zou program.
I know someone who suddenly began recalling his birth while doing Dao Zou. This may sound far fetched to you now, but it won’t be if you do the training.
A good regiment is to do the Chinese Long-Life System program in the a.m. – along with some of the Royal Court from Combat Conditioning. Then end your day with Dao Zou.
All of these programs are currently being offered at half- off here.
