There are some stories that you wouldn’t believe exist. Blema Flex, a break dancer, had some of the most inspiring and uplifting stories you will ever read. Eighteen years ago he was a cripple with no chances of recovery in the opinion of the doctors. He couldn’t accept that and searched for other methods, far beyond the medicine to try and walk again. He found his answers in the Asian martial arts. Here is his story :
“Dear Sports Inspiration,My name is Blema Etrey(Blema Flex) I thought I would send you my pics and story. I’m Almost 50 years old still training hard,although I am told I look younger now than I did twenty years ago. Anyway, 18 years or so ago I had a crippling back breaking injury from dancing and hospital said I needed a hip replacement and would not walk properly again. However, I did not have the operation but I recovered over 10 years with the help of a martial arts master from Japan and his special energy therapy, I began to walk properly again..I then began to train with his special super stretch technique which made me super flexible and super toned as well(as you can see in pictures).As a result I have got back into dancing and have recently been featured in Tv adverts for comedy central and channel 4 and am the most flexible break-dancer in UK . I now teach the special stretch technique ,as although I was a dancer I had no talent for being flexible before when I was young .It is not being taught anywhere in world from what I have seen.”
“Basically I had been training in street/breakdance doing a lot of body popping and acrobatics/breakdance. However, body popping has a strange affect on body as the rigid movement closes down energy in body and decreases the bodies flexibility. I had been doing for several hours a day for years. One day I went to do a somersault performing at an event and my hips snapped in two, driving my hips a few inches up my back. Doctors said I wouldn’t walk properly and that I had to replace my hip. Devastated, I start looking for some answers and tried to find a solution to my depressing future. This is how I found an Asian martial artist from Japan, who wants to keep anonymously his name.
The Japanese man helped me with something called ki energy. Basically, when you put ki energy into the body it makes the whole body become super flexible. It took several years for me to recover. After all, I was crippled and hospital had long given up. But over years of meeting this man my whole body became super flexible and strong. Furthermore, I had no talent for being flexible when I was young. I could never do the splits or anything like that and I am not double jointed.
To be honest this Japanese man’s skills are incredible but he wants a quiet life so he does not even advertise. He is retired so people see him on recommendation. When he came here in the 1970s he was one the best ki energy specialists in the world. Throughout his life he trained 10 kickboxing world champions. An amazing fact is that at the moment he is 80 years old and is still better than all the world champions he trained. A big reason for that is his understanding of how to use energy to heal the body. I know it sounds crazy but I am living proof of that. What is funny though is when the people who used to know me when I was young as a dancer see me now and it is hard for them to believe how flexible I have became. As I have not met anyone who started training at 30 with no previous talent and then can suddenly do splits like Jean Claude Van Damme. But the martial arts master who healed my back always just kept telling me ‘life is a long road’ you will get better and dance again, I just could not believe that would happen after my injury but it did.
The technique you must first learn to do moves like me but it is easy and also makes body super toned. The technique is actually needed by everybody to maintain health as if started from young the problems which old people get like dementia and alzheimers will not happen from what i have learned from martial arts master.Also scientists have found that their is a mole rat in Africa (cancer proof)immune to cancer because of an enzyme it produces making it super flexible.If you would like to come to my special super stretch exercise class feel free to contact me.You also do not need to be a member of my gym to come to class.”
Blema is living in London at the moment and if you have some concerns about your physical health, he is definitely I guy you have to meet.
