Other important moments


Dianxue Master Yzar Cervantes gave us the honor to show us his way of using vital points in Dianxue and Kyusho. His techniques functioned very well and we feel very tempted to invite him for our next seminar also. Beside the effective techniques he shared we also met an excellent person, a skilled professional, and got a new friend.

Searching for acupuncture points was an essential part of the training at the Vital point seminar. Then the students learned martial arts techniques  on all the points.
