  • " It is the spirit that is the real person. It is the spirit that has energy and a physical body, and not the body that has energy and a spirit. The spirit is “permanent”, whereas the energy and the physical body are constantly changing, although the change is usually invisible to the naked eye. "

      Thank you dear Siheng for sharing another wonderful quote. :-)

      Please find below another inspiring quote from Sifu that I personally love:

      "From our perspective, the most important discovery is to transfer our chi kung and kungfu training to enrich our daily life. We do so purposefully and systematically, and I am very happy that we have been very successful.

      Previously I thought that the biggest group of people who wrote to thank me would be those whom I helped to cure from so-called incurable diseases. But this was not so. The biggest group of people, by a very big margin, who wrote to thank me were initially healthy. They thanked me for sharing our arts that enabled them to enrich their lives as well as the lives of other people." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

      • Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

        Please find below another inspiring quote from Sifu:

        "We in Shaolin Wahnam are grateful to our lineage of masters that we practice kungfu sparring.

        Oddly, we are criticized for practicing kungfu sparring! Some common criticisms are as follows:
        • Our kungfu sparring is not kungfu sparring; it is choreography.
        • Our sparring is not brutal or aggressive.
        • We have no fighting experience.
        • It cannot be used against other martial systems like Boxing or Wrestling.
        While we are not bothered by such criticisms, it is good to know them. They can, for instance, help us to examine our kungfu sparring from another perspective. Here are our brief answers to these criticisms.
        • Our sparring methodology is very comprehensive, ranging from pre-arranged one-step sparring to totally free sparring, including against multiple and armed opponents.
        • We are actually proud that we can be combat efficient without being brutal or aggressive.
        • Many of our Shaolin Wahnam members not only free spar with martial artists of different styles but also have real fighting experiences.
        • Our sparring has proven to be effective against other martial systems, including Boxing and Wrestling. (In fact we pay much importance to fighting Boxers and Kick-Boxers, not because of the above criticism but because today many people use Boxing and Kick-Boxing techniques in their fights.)
        It is also comforting to know that the above criticisms, though vocal, are only from a small minority. Many other people have written to thank us for sharing our sparring methodology — something that was quite unheard of in the past." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

            Thank you dear Sidai for your kind words. Much appreciated. :-) . I agree with you on the Safety First principle. It was a life-changing experience for me.

            Please find below another wonderful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

            "How would kungfu practitioners fight? Of course they fight using kungfu pattern! The answer is so logical that the question seems silly. It is like asking how would footballers play football, or how would pianists play the piano. Of course they perform using the techniques and skills they have practiced."

            • Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

              Please find below another fantastic and inspiring quote from Sifu:

              "If we sincerely want to preserve these marvelous arts, we just have to reveal some secrets. Actually many of these secrets, which bring important results, are not secrets in the traditional sense. They were teaching points any student practicing genuine chi kung or kungfu in the past would know.

              For example, to be relaxed and focused, which is the most basic requirement in a chi kung state of mind, was what any student in the past would know and do when he practiced chi kung, otherwise he would not be practicing chi kung! But today chi kung has been so debased that most practitioners do not know this "secret".

              This "secret" is found in most chi kung instructions, but most practitioners merely read this instruction to be relaxed and focused without putting it into practice. This is one great "secret" that we highlight in our teaching and which we also share with the public. If chi kung practitioners, even though they may not learn from us, appreciate this "secret" and put it into their practice without changing any other things, they will enhance their result by at least three times." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

              • Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family,

                Please find below another wonderful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

                "As Damian has rightly pointed out, “There is nothing glamorous about fighting.” We want to avoid fighting as best as possible, but if we have to fight, we shall fight well. We want to come out of combat unhurt.

                But that is not the purpose of many martial artists today. Many martial artists seem to enjoy fighting. They look for fights when they can and they get hurt, sometimes more than their opponents.

                Why do we train kungfu, any style of kungfu, if we do not want to fight? As I have often mentioned, kungfu training gives us many qualities important for our daily living, like quick reflexes, fast movements, calm disposition, mental clarity as well as good health, vitality and longevity, usually more than what chi kung can provide." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit

                  Please find another wonderful and inspiring quote from Sifu:

                  "It is also interesting to note that some critics feel offended seeing how relaxed we are when we spar! They question whether we have any fighting experience, not realizing that some of us have used our art not only in winning sparring competitions but in coming out safely in actual combat where deadly weapons were used and where the out-come could be serious injury or death.

                  Obviously, these critics do not know that the more proficient the kungfu practitioners are, the more relaxingly and elegantly they fight. Novices are tensed and agitated, whereas real masters are calm and relaxed -- in combat as well as in their daily lives." - Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit
