Stealing the Energy Q&A

Here’s the answer to a question I recieved about “stealing the energy” in phase 1 silat.

i have a question concerning the silat dvd :stealing energy and basic kilap”
is stealing the energy referring to weakening an opponent during a combat situation or taking someone’s qi for oneself? or i am missing it all here?
Thanks for the question. Stealing the Energy is a particular way of striking that immediately weakens a person due to the overwhelmingly penetrating nature of the hit. It’s a very physical technique that does require a bit of practice to correctly learn but nothing mystical. However, I do show versions of stealing energy that are more energetic in nature higher up in the program.
