    One of the things I and my students have noticed is the noticeable increase in force and rooting you get from applying WBU/6H instead of just rotating from the waste. Yet another good reason for practicing entering a chi kung state of mind to increase your observation skills.

    Maintaining this level of awareness in combat is then the next stage. So how do you attain this skill I hear you ask?

    Simple, follow the progressive steps in out curriculum.

    We only realise or rediscover what has already been known and practiced for 1000’s of years. Of course how we learn and practice in our school accelerates the process that would otherwise take years or decades to learn.

      Dear Wahnam familiy!

      I’ve read through this thread with great interest and enjoyed the comparison between different methods.
      Before I started practising according to Shaolin Wahnam, I came across a style of Wing Chun, which focuses on the internal aspects as well.
      I would highly appreciate your opinion on this method. Could you please elaborate on the differences/similarities between their method and ours?

      Grandmaster Cho Shong Tin from Hong Kong focuses on using a special “internal engine” in his teaching.
      In the following video, Chu Shong Tin explains the difference between his Wing Chun and Tai Chi Chuan:

      The following clips show a glimpse of CST’s power:

      Short introduction CST Wing Chun:
      (Fur further information, please see the explanation of CST himself in this article:

      This method focuses on complete body relaxation and awareness and strives for decompressing the joints to develop a state they call “Nim Tao”, and power the movements from the mind (“Nim Lik”). Once this state is acquired, the practitioner can exert great power, regardless of his stance or the angle of his joints (please see videos). This is achieved by practising the fundamental set “Siu Nim Tao” for prolonged time and in very slow speed (1 set for 30min or more!), and with focus on “Tai Gung” and “Seng”.
      Tai Gung = intention of “lifting up” the anus area, as to connect upper and lower body and to fully relax the mid-section of the body
      Seng = visualizing of energy flowing upward from the tailbone to the crown of the head, as to fully decompress the spine

      Is this another way of describing the “whole body unity” or the 6 harmonies, as Tim Sipak mentioned in his post #28?
      Does anybody know this style?

      Looking forward to your responses!

      Best wishes,
