January 2013 Part 1

kungfu sparring

There was no doubt my sifu, Sifu Lai Chin Wah, was a great fighter. His honourable nickname, Uncle Righteousness, by which he was better known in kungfu circles than his own name, was not just due to his sense of righteousness, but due to his frequent actual fighting to maintain righteousness.

Enjoying the benefits of spread and depth even in otherwise opposite arts like Taijiquan and Triple Stretch is very special for us in Shaolin Wahnam. I believe it is unprecedented in the whole history of kungfu, though kungfu super-greats like Zhang San Feng and Ng Mui had these benefits as individuals but no schools as an institution had these before.

Yet, it would be succinct to mention our justification, more for our students' benefit than for argument with skeptics. Our students in an Intensive Chi Kung Course learn to generate energy flow in just three days, and our students in an Intensive Shaolin Kungfu Coruse and an Intensive Taijiquan Course learn to develop internal force and apply Shaolin and Taijiquan techniques in combat in just five days.

The Heart Sutra

The Heart Sutra is very important in Buddhism, especially in Zen Buddhism. It is a record of the enlightenment experience of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara or Guan Yin Bodh Satt. In Chinese it consists of only about 162 words, yet it contains the gist of Buddhist philosophy.

Drunken Eight Immortals

Why do we not only teach to the public, but also do so generously? There are two main reasons. We want to preserve the art. If we do not teach the secrets we cannot preserve the art. Secondly, it is because of the policy of our school. The tenth Shaolin Law dictates that we should teach to deserving students irrespective of race, culture and religion.

Sifu Roland and Grandmaster Wong

While many of us have had a glimpse of this transcendental Cosmic Reality in our spiritual awakening, we are not ready for a perfect merging into it. We prefer to have a long, happy and rewarding life here and now.

Grandmaster Wong and Sifu Roland

Chi flow has enabled us to help many people overcome so-called incurable diseases. For those who train internal force (which is practically everyone in our school), it free them the concern of deviated training. Hence, we have the luxury of "Don't Worry" being the first golden rule of our practice.

Guan Yin Bodh Satt

All our training, right from the beginning to the most advanced, is triple cultivation of body, energy and spirit. We cultivate to have a healthy body, to have a lot of energy for work and play, and to purify our spirit to appreciate beauty in this world as well as to have wisdom about eternal life. Our training is not just theoretical, but practical, we directly experience what we train for.

Bone Marrow Cleansing
