Meet the author

I’m Tom Bisio, the author of Revival Techniques: Emergency Medicine for Sports and Martial Arts Distance Learning Program. In designing this program I have drawn on my experiences of teaching martial arts for more than 40 years, and over 25 years experience as a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine. In the course of preparing this program, I made numerous trips to China to study with masters of the internal arts and Chinese medicine, and wrote a number of books on internal martial arts. The knowledge and insights gained during those trips, as well as my experiences teaching martial arts and Chinese medicine in the United States and abroad have influenced this program which I am excited to offer you.

What are Revival Techniques and why should I learn them?

Revival methods and vital points have been used for centuries by Chinese physicians, martial artists, and warriors to aid people who have been injured, and/or have lost consciousness. Vital points and methods can be used to revive people from drowning, strangulation, fainting, heart attack, impact injuries and stroke. The methods presented in this class also begin to undo the internal damage that can occur in these emergency situations. These revival methods are essential first aid techniques that everyone should know, and they are particularly valuable if you are a coach, martial arts instructor, or health care professional.

The Revival Techniques online learning program is based on Tom’s book, A Pearl From the Dragon’s Neck: Secret Revival Methods & Vital Points for Injury, Healing And Health from the Great Martial Arts Masters. Tom details and demonstrates these practical and time-tested methods while systematically explaining how and why these methods work.

Starting January 1, 2015, the European Union (EU) made a major change to its VAT regulations, that now requires businesses to pay VAT according to the locations of consumers. This law was meant mainly for large companies that have been avoiding higher taxes by establishing presences in places with lower VAT. Unfortunately, the regulation change also put a burden on independent creators who sell digital products to customers in Europe.

We’re unhappy with this new law as it puts a large burden on us, and you, the customer, end up paying more. However, we are forced to comply with the new law. We use Gumroad as the payment portal because they are reliable and trusted, and in addition they now collect the VAT automatically. We do not personally collect or receive the VAT. The VAT is collected by Gumroad and distributed to the proper authorities in each country by Gumroad.

If you are also unhappy with the new VAT law, we suggest you contact the appropriate local representative in your country.

The videos will be accessible indefinitely. We are committed to maintaining your ability to gain access to them.

It is not possible to answer everyone’s questions and many questions are impossible to answer through words alone. We encourage you to practice the material as many questions can only be answered through practice. We do offer workshops in Sports Medicine and Revival Techniques periodically in the USA and Europe. We recommend attending a workshop in person.
