Acupressure is a process in which blunt pressure is exerted at defined parts of the body.

In the traditional Free-Warrior medicine, acupressure is part of the pressure massage. Pahuyuth (especially in LING LOM) uses the reversal of acupressure techniques to harm enemies. Grip techniques and pressure point techniques are among the Pahuyuth’s system weapons.

The so-called Free-Warrior knowledge or traditional Free-Warrior knowledge is the totality of the knowledge of Pahuyuth, Saiyasart and the Free-Warrior medicine.

The traditional Free-Warrior knowledge includes not only the Pahuyuth but also the Saiyasart and the knowledge of Naturopathy. All three areas of knowledge are closely linked and have always been in mutual interaction.


Pahuyuth deals with the combative aspects of existence and physical confrontation. It consists of two disciplines of unarmed combat (MUAI, LING LOM) and five armed combat disciplines (MEED, DAAB, GRABONG, MAI SAWK, SABAI). Fragments of Pahuyuth can be found, for example, in the Thai national sport Muay Thai and many other Asian martial arts.


Saiyasart (knowledge of nothingness) deals with non-physical phenomena of all kinds on the basis of logic and rationality. These include forms of spirituality, meditation, magic, and spiritual healing. Fragments of Saiyasart were adopted by Thai Buddhism (e.g. amulets and talismans) other components were ostracised as “black magic”.


The traditional Free-Warrior Medicine is based partly on the knowledge of the body, mind and soul from Saiyasart, but also on the practical necessity of being able to heal diseases and injuries far away from civilization. It is based on the support of the self-healing functions of the human body. The naturopathy includes knowledge of massage techniques, healing bodies and medicinal plants. Parts of this area of knowledge found their way into traditional Thai massage and other natural healing methods.


The traditional Free-Warrior medicine (also Pahuyuth-Naturopathy) is the traditional naturopathy knowledge of the ancient Free-Warriors. The Free-Warrior medicine includes the areas of analysis, healing and nutritional sciences and massage. It is a sub-area of the traditional Free-Warrior knowledge.

The Model of Autodynamics describes the behavioral biological mechanisms of stimulus and reaction that exist within a reaction sequence.

The Model of Autodynamics is based on the findings of traditional Free-Warrior medicine about the structure and functioning of the central nervous system as well as those of the Saiyasart being and not being. It is assumed that input, data processing, and output of information can take place at both the physical and non-physical levels.

Pahuyuth model of autodynamics 1

The model of autodynamics is a universal concept that is applied to Pahuyuth, as well as Saiyasart and traditional Free-Warrior medicine.

Autodynamics in Pahuyuth

The Pahuyuth deals mainly with the physical aspects of autodynamics in the realm of being.

An example of this are the behavioral biological mechanisms of stimulus and response, which are present during a fight with initial situation, action phase, reaction and follow-up phase as well as the update phase. An exact breakdown of this autodynamic reaction history and further information about the autodynamic model is included in the Pahuyuth Compendium.

Autodynamics in Saiyasart

The Saiyasart deals mainly with the non-physical aspects of autodynamics in the realm of not-being.

Examples of this are the management of existential conflicts and psychological problems, but also the handling of magic and information up to the development of knowledge of the truth. A perceptual application of the model of autodynamics can be found in Yaan Meditation.

Autodynamics in the Free-Warrior Medicine

The traditional Free-Warrior medicine deals with the health aspects of autodynamics at the border area between being and not being.

An example of this is the model of stimuli formations and the nervous system, as explained in Part 4 of the introduction into the traditional Free-Warrior medicine.

Ruesi (also Known as Lersi, Pra Rasi or Rishi in India) is a type of jungle preacher or itinerant healer from Southeast Asia.

Ruesi was originally the term for a fortune teller, shaman or medicine man who lives secluded in the wilderness and spends his time in deep meditation or in the production of medicine. The culture of the Ruesi, like the culture of Pahuyuth, goes back to a time before Buddhism.

The Ruesi were told, among other things, that they had the ability to leave their bodies, to predict the future, to create magical tattoos and amulets, and to be able to talk to animals. However, these abilities are less to be attributed to medicine than to the fields of knowledge of Saiyasart or Yaan Meditation.

A Ruesi plays an important role in the “Story of Gaeuw”. The Story of Gaeuw serves as part of the martial arts training of the Pahuyuth to teach the teaching methodology. It is about a young son of charcoal burners who went out to look for a hunter to save his village from a tiger gang.

The short documentary The Lost Wizards of Thailand provides an insight into the world of Ruesi and their culture:

In Buddhist teaching, ungood knowledge (Ah Vicha) or vile knowledge (Derachan Vicha) refers to those areas of knowledge that are suitable for harming other living beings. Both the Pahuyuth and the Saiyasart as well as components of the traditional Free-Warrior medicine are in many places considered “Ah Vicha” or “Derachan Vicha”.
