LING LOM is based on five fundamental system teachings.
The first teaching is the System of the Teacher, which includes the knowledge of position, stability and movements of the human body in space as well as the teaching of autodynamic reaction patterns.
The second teaching is the Teaching of Basic Fighting Techniques. Here the bodily weapons (fist, foot, elbow and knee) are used in combination with static and dynamic fighting positions.
The third teaching is called Defence Knowledge. This includes all humanly possible types of unarmed defence from and to every body position.
The fourth teaching is called Safety Knowledge. It contains the principles of falling and rolling, as well as movement on the ground and self-rescue.
The fifth teaching is called the Grappling Technique. It contains the knowledge of the biological and biomechanical functions of the human body and their limits. Derivations of the fifth system theory include, for example, grappling techniques and throws, but also pressure point techniques that target nerves, tendons, blood vessels and internal organs.
A LING LOM warrior uses his fighting techniques analogous to the five system teachings and in the sense of the model of autodynamics. He acts informally, unpredictably and individually to the opponent‘s fighting style. He adapts to foreign fighting styles without having learned them and preferably uses elements that the opponent does not expect or does not know. A LING LOM warrior creates situational conditions in his own favour, causes confusion and attacks the biological weak points of the human body. The technique leading to victory is often aimed at irreversibly mutilating, crippling or killing the opponent.
Due to the difficult to understand nature of this fighting style and its high destructive power, LING LOM is one of the most dangerous unarmed fighting systems in the world. Due to the structural openness and unlimited freedom of this combat system and the continuous development over thousands of years, it can also be described as one of the oldest and potentially most developed hybrid systems in the world.
