04-20-16 Pressure Points and Korean Martial Arts History with Barry Harmon
Martial arts Master Barry Harmon talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about pressure points, Ki, healing, and self defense–including some of the most important aspects of Ki and pressure point principles. Harmon describes how he first became interested in pressure points and martial arts, and how personal self defense has much more to do with protecting oneself from disease and bad lifestyle. Harmon shares some surprising aspects of Korean history, including how monks were able to successfully protect Korean peasants and villagers from Mongolian invaders, and the artistic and scholarly side of ancient Hwarang warriors.
Master Barry Harmon is a teacher, an acupuncturist, a speaker, a master in the martial art of Kuk Sool Won, and author of the books, “The Power of Pressure Points,” and “5,000 Years of Korean Martial Arts.” He earned his B.A in Psychosomatic and Alternative Healing from San Francisco State University, and holds national and state level certification as a licensed acupuncturist. Now a ninth degree black belt in Kuk Sool Won, Barry Harmon became the first American master in this martial art after training with Grandmaster In Hyuk Suh in South Korea. http://kuksoolwoncl.com/
