Acupuncture points are studied at the advanced level of Temple Knights training, for the development of both fighting and healing skills. It begins with the study of anatomy, five element theory and acupuncture points, then proceeds to acupressure massage. This is an essential knowledge for the practice of Dim Mak (death touch), both for the effective use of these points in combat and for the healing of injuries.
As a healing art, the acupuncture points are extremely effective for a wide variety of disorders. At Temple Knights the emphasis is on the rapid healing of physical injuries and the relief of pain.
