  • 18 Jewels of Shaolin Wahnam Chi Kung ?

    Dear Sihengs Michael and Mark,

    Thank you for maintaining this section.

    Is there a Chinese expression for "The 18 Jewels of Shaolin Wahnam Chi Kung"?

    For my website I wrote articles for each set of exercises including the Chinese characters, but I don't know the correct ones for the 18 Jewels.

    Your help on this would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance!

    Best wishes,

    Leo
    Sifu Leonard Lackinger

    Dear Leo,

    Thank you for your kind words. I've look at your website and the webpage for the 18 Jewel and I found you've done an excellent job.

    I do not know what the Chinese characters for "The Eighteen Jewels of Shaolin Wahnam Chi Kung" are exactly but I guess they would be: "少林華南十八寶氣功". Or, perhaps Mark might know what the official name is. We would need to get Sifu's confirmation on the correct characters.

    As soon as we get confirmation, we'll be sure to let you know.

    Best wishes,
    Mike

        Dear Sifu,
        Dear Mike Siheng,

        Thank you so much for providing the characters for the 18 Jewels!

        As always I got much more than I asked for.

        I included the characters of the exercises as well in my article about the set:
        http://www.shaolin-wahnam-wien.at/ar...igong.html.php

        I guess the Mandarin version is:
        Shao Lin Wah Nam Shi Ba Bao Qi Gong
        ???

        Best wishes,

        Leo

            Dear Leo,

            I'm glad to be of service. I looked at your updated page and I think it looks great!

            I believe that is the correct Mandarin pronunciation for "Poh" or jewel. Technically speaking, "Wah Nam" is the Cantonese pronunciation. In Mandarin, I think it would be "Hua Nan". However, I really do like the idea of being consistent with one singular pronunciation to avoid confusion with the name of our school (i.e. having it written as "Wahnam" regardless of dialect or language).

            Best wishes,
            Mike

              Dear Mike,

              Thanks again for your reply.

              In his article about our school logo Sifu wrote about the mixture of Mandarin and Cantonese language. Shao-Lin is much better known to the public in Mandarin. The names of his master were generally known in Cantonese, so he sticked to Wah and Nam.

              I just followed Sifu's decision.

              And thanks for your compliments regarding my website.

              Best wishes,

                Dear Leo,

                Thanks for the link to article about our school logo. I really enjoyed re-reading it. It was a good reminder of the origins and ideals of our school.

                That's a very good decision indeed!
