better persons

Only a small minority of practitioners enjoy benefits of their training across other aspects of their daily life. In other words, not only they become better chi kung and kungfu performers, they also become better persons. But, as far as I know, we are the only school that systematically teach our students to use the philosophy and skills not only of chi flow and internal force but also of all their training to enrich their daily life. This certainly is a key innovation to preserve the greatness of the arts we teach.

In kungfu, depending on various situations different breathing methods are used. Generally the method is "follow", where there is no conscious breathing in and out through the nose or mouth, but energy flows in and out of practitioners' body spontaneously. This is a main reason why our students can spar for hours without panting for breaths, simply because there is no breathing in the modern sense of the word.

Xingyiquan combat

The information in some books is correct, but the authors do not understand the meaning. They merely repeated or translated what they found in classics. How does a genuine master know that the information is wrong, or that the authors do not understand the right information he reproduced? The master has direct experience of the right information.

seven steps a poem

Clear the mind of all thoughts. Define the problem with a clear mind. Once the problem is defined, solutions will appear. Translate the solutions you see in your clear mind as practical actions, not as philosophical issues.

Baguazhang has three planes

I understood many of the Taijiquan secrets through meditation and direct teaching from the Cosmos as well as through extrapolation form my experience. Indeed, sometimes I also felt that I had taken a short-cut to bypass much of the trial and error some lineages went through.

Horse-Riding Stance

It must be genuine chi kung and not gentle physical exercise. The main difference is that genuinee chi kung works on chi, whereas gentle phyical works on the physical body. If one does not experience chi or does not know what chi is, he only practices general physical exercise though the patterns are chi kung forms.

chi kung

Chi kung can overcome any disease, but this does not mean that every patient can overcome his illness. In the same way, everyone can become a millionaire, but it does not mean that everyone is a millionaire.
