qigong, chi kung

If a practitioner is skillful, he can use his mind to direct his chi flow to cleanse, build or nourish. Nevertheless, unless the practitioner has good reasons to do otherwise, employing the concept of "wu-wei", after having performed "you-wei", is safer and usually more effective.

I used to say "in my young days", but Douglas, my most senior student in Europe, reminded me at the time when I was about 50 that I was still young, so I have changed the expression to "my younger days". Even now when I am over 70 and still feel young, I use the expression "in my younger days".

Kungfu classics mention that great kungfu besides contributing to combat efficiency also contributes to good health and spiritual cultivation. Hence, when I can use my kungfu efficiently for combat, have good health and am peaceful and happy, I can confirm that the kungfu I practice is great.

chi flow

Entering Tao is the same as entering into a chi kung state of mind. As the internal arts of Wahnam Taijiquan are generally more powerful that the 18 Lohan Hands, which form the start of our chi kung syllabus, most of your students can generate a chi flow even when they practice Lohan Hand exercises for the first time.

Whatever you have been doing that brings you benefit or pleasure, you can continue to do so when you learn chi kung from me. For example, you have been practicing Taiji from another school or drinking wine every time you eat your meals, and these activities bring you benefit or pleasure, you can continue to do so.

presence of mind

Suppose marketing our courses is A, and other tasks like studying key points, creating videos, etc are B, C, D, E and F. You do A. If in the process of doing A, you also need to do B and C, then you do A,B and C. Don't waste your time and effort doing B, C, D, E, F and any other tasks first, then do A.

chi kung

The difference between a matter of course and a matter of fact can be illustrated by an analogy. If you drive along an expressway from Madrid to Barcelona, arriving at Barcelona is a matter of course. As a matter of fact you may not arrive if, for example, you stop on the way or drive to somewhere else.

The focus on teaching children is fun. In other words we make it fun for children to practice chi kung or kungfu. In teaching adults the focus is on attaining their aims and objectives, like maintaining good health or overcoming a particular illness in chi kung, knowing some self-defence or overcoming timidness in kungfu.
