Explanation of herbs

Dit da jiao (defined as “hit medicine”) has been an integral part of Traditional Martial Arts for centuries. It has developed, flourished and evolved over hundreds of years and has been passed down through oral and written history of Oriental medicine, martial arts, and modern Western science. Most are considered to be “secret formulas” and are handed down through a family tradition from generation to generation. Traditionally, practitioners would often earn their living from treating patients and selling herbal medicine. Dit da skills and herbal formulas of a particular family were always highly guarded and kept very secret. This tradition is still carried on today.

It is common knowledge to know that the human body can be injured or damaged very easily. Risk of injury and soreness in martial arts, sports and other physical activity is an unavoidable factor and may occur due to a variety of reasons such as getting hit, falling down, holding positions, etc; injuries may include bruises, sprains, strains, cuts, fractures, internal bleeding and other trauma. Normally the human body can, in time, heal itself of some minor injuries such as light cuts, sprains, etc., but this natural healing process is limited. Proper herbal formulas, or dit da jiao, are extremely effective in speeding the healing process without any side effects. Dit da jiao also deals with the prevention of injuries from arising, rather than treating symptoms after problems have occurred.
