THE KOSHO - SHOREI
COAT OF ARMS
EXERCISES
MEDITATION AND ENERGY COLLECTION

 

NOTE: The exercises will be incorrect unless breathing is done in a correct manner. All breathing is done through the nose. This is because the nasal passages are equipped to filter air, also to warm cold air, as well as cool hot air for the lungs. First, inhale (slowly) and deeply through the nose, forcing the air to the bottom of the lungs. Bring the air into your stomach, (meaning below your naval). Push down with your stomach muscles. Exhale, (The center of energy is slightly below the naval. The center of power is in the waist and buttock muscles). In executing the breathing exercises it will build energy, power, strength, and promote good health.
