  • Martial Arts and Healing Arts:

    two sides of the same coin

    In the East martial arts and healing arts have always shared the same principles, the same wisdom and the same life style. In such a context, then, martial arts are considered as life preserving arts par excellence”, either for self-defense or for prevention of illness. In China and Japan, in fact, longevity, spirit and health are obtained through processes which are very similar to those needed to acquire fighting skills. In particular, Qi Gong (a health oriented discipline) and Taiji Quan (a martial art), both originated in China, share the same philosophical roots, the same movement principles and the same basics.

     

    It is common knowledge that the study of these disciplines can reach unimaginable depths, giving pratictioners a balanced and rewarding life. In order to be able to cultivate and maintain this life efficiently, however, in addition to a regular and sincere practice, it is essential to renounce to any mental conditioning and to carry out independent research, by becoming free from beliefs and prejudices.

     

    Such independent research is AMHA’s main goal.

     

    "Both martial arts and healing arts should be expressed as a form of personal development. The solving of the conflict (internal and external) must be the main goal of this personal development. Self-realization, in fact, can’t be realized without a deep, effective and introspective effort, capable of cutting the roots of conflict. One of the most important causes of this conflict is surely fear, in all its manifestations). Martial arts, as well as holistic disciplines (especially those belonging to the ancient eastern tradition) which promote a better quality of life, should always aim to put an end to anxiety, fear and conflict”.

     

    Giuseppe Paterniti Lupo, AMHA’s Managing Director

  • An Alliance for Martial and Healing Arts

    AMHA (Alliance for Martial and Healing Arts) is an independent organization of schools and teachers who shares the above mentioned views and the same academic training. They also share, among AMHA’s guiding principles, the intention of evolving further than the restrictions of groups or “factions”.

     

    It is an Alliance whose main goals are: to research, study and spread Eastern disciplines, through its extensive and continuously updated technical programs and through its different methods.

     

    Affiliated schools form a Network that is capable of achieving common goals, supporting the work of each affiliated school and facilitating the sharing of attained results.

     

    Master Giuseppe Paterniti Lupo, who is an accredited expert in Qi Gong, Taiji Quan and Bioenergetic Disciplines, is the entrusted Director of AHMA.The leading school in training and managing is Stone Temple Tao(www.stonetempletao.it).

    Together... to practice,

    grow and unfold.

  • Requirements

    No registration fee is required and no restrictions are imposed since the Alliance dissociates itself from the profit motive and the debasement of eastern arts. Therefore, the affiliated schools are requested to fulfill the following requirements:

    • To train and update on a regular basis.
    • To participate positively in promoting the Alliance (i.e. posting the “logo” of the Alliance on the school’s website, banners and fliers, etc...).
    • Make available research work and share experiences and teaching material.
    • To have a theoretical and practical knowledge of one or more AHMA’s technical programs.

    Crossing the treshold of the Temple of Being

    The doors of knowledge, understanding and skill are open to those who work on themselves, with energetic enthusiasm, refining their own Being. Access to the Temple of Being is denied to those who maintain a rigid and restricting attitude and are solely oriented to materialistic and selfish goals. Being means, ultimately, BEING FREE.

    The right orientation

    Genuine internal evolution is not guaranteed merely through the practice of martial arts and health disciplines. Many abilities can be attained on an “external” plane, but without achieving a corresponding “internal” transformation. Such practice should always aim to overcome personal selfish drives and to achieve freedom on a psychological plane. Were this essential orientation not present, the work done on ourselves would produce poor results.

  • Advantages

    Eastern arts are precious and priceless. Overcoming fears, selfishness and unnecessary lack of communication, along with a mutual collaboration, is necessary for mutual enrichment. Thanks to the cooperation among schools and teachers, AMHA can guarantee the allied members a whole series of advantages.

    • Discounts for training initiatives proposed by “Stone Temple Tao”, the leading school, by the managing and technical director or by other schools or teachers;
    • Registration of the schools or teachers, participating to the project, into the network of the Alliance);
    • Sharing of teaching material (notes, handouts, videos, etc...);
    • Posting and advertising of the affiliated schools and teachers’ facts (description of the school activity, contacts, etc...) on the web page of AMHA;
    • Opportunity of promoting on specialized magazines or on fliers and leaflets any activity of the affiliated schools and teachers, reducing costs;
    • Teaching practice, workshops and seminars can be offered by any member of AMHA;
    • AMHA PASS, a booklet which registers the participation in events, teaching practice, seminars, exams, advancing into higher ranks, instructor courses, etc...) for all schools, teachers and students;
    • Diplomas and certificates recognized by AMHA and other institutions entrusted for accreditation;
    • Possibility, in case of participation to competitions, to be part of a team of AMHA’s Athletes.

    The only business we are interested in

    is our growth and unfolding.

     

    We don’t want to be the best,

    our aim is being what we practice.

    MALTA CHEN TAIJI QUAN ASSOCIATION

    MALTA - REPUBLIC OF MALTA

    During his three year stay in Malta, our first Chen family Taijiquan teacher Yu Fei shared with us the fundamental aspects of this Martial Art. Following his departure in 2007 the "Malta Chen Taijiquan Association" was established to promote the study of this art Malta. The more advanced pupils within the association continued their studies with the ITKA (International Taijiqaun Kingfu Association) headed by Gianfranco Pace. This collaboration lasted for around six years, following which a decision was taken to become more autonomous as an Association, while at the same time explore new horizons related to this art. This is happening today, for instance, through the collaboration with the Alliance for the Martial and Healing Arts (AMHA) headed by Master Giuseppe Paterniti. The Malta Chen Taijiquan Association provides a method of study to allow its pupils understand how Taijiquan can be effective to stay healthy and also for self defense. The study program includes Qigong, traditional forms of the style, Tui Shou (Push Hands), sparring, self defense techniques plus the study of a number of taditional Chinese weapons. Recently the school started another ambitious project by offering Xingyiquan classes as part of its program.
