ATTAINING MARVELOUS FEATS THROUGH SINEW METAMORPHOSIS
Sifu, there are fantastic stories of past practitioners of Sinew Metamorphosis. Do you think it would be possible or feasible for modern practitioners to attain marvellous feats through diligent Sinew Metamorphosis training?-- Markus Kahila
Of course. Not only it is possible and feasible, it is actually happening in our school -- on a routine basis. Those attending the Legacy of Bodhidharma courses in the coming Winter Camp in Norway are expected -- not just hoped -- to have similar results.
Today many people suffered from so-called incurable diseases, like cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, chronic pain, depression and addiction to alcohol and drugs. Many of our students have overcome such diseases by practicing chi kung from Bodhidharma's Legacy.
Breaking a brick with a palm strike is quite a feat; breaking the lower of two bricks without breaking the top one is considered impossible by many people. But many of our students have done than. Sinew Metamorphosis is excellent for developing the internal force required for such a seemingly impossible feat.
Many people have read that past masters could spar for hours without feeling tired and without panting for breaths. They wonder how this could be done, seeing many martial artists today out of breath after 10 minutes of sparring. It may be incredible but true that most of our students can do this! This feat can be derived from practicing chi kung of Bodhidharma's Legacy.
It is fantastic to read about stories of elderly female kungfu masters beating able-bodied young men. How could a small-sized person defeat a much bigger, much stronger opponent? The answer lies in internal force. The chi kung in Bodhidharma's Legacy is excellent for developing internal force. Those interested can find a lot of videos on my website showing free sparring where size, age and gender are not important.
Bathed in celestial light, inner light radiating out of the body, seeing God, expanding into the Cosmos, being nowhere and everywhere -- these are fantastic experiences of great masters in their spiritual training. Some people may wonder whether these experiences are real. We know for certain that these are real, because many of our students have such beautiful, spiritual experiences in our Sinew Metamorphosis courses. Understandingly, many other people may not believe it, but it is true. We are going to have such beautiful, spiritual experiences at the coming Winter Camp.
