  • In response to Mark Siheng's earlier request, I have just caught up with a Q&A from a while back, http://shaolin.org/answers/ans13a/jan13-2.html, and this answer
    Question 3

    Previously when I came out of my Horse-Rriding Stance, that would be the end of the session. Now after I have finished my Horse-Rriding Stance I do self manifested chi movement as described in your book, "Complete Book of Shaolin".

    — Dan USA

    Answer

    This is a big kungfu secret. I believe we in Shaolin Wahnam are the first to share this big secret publicly.

    In the past, masters shared this secret privately only with a few top students, after the students had proven themselves worthy after many, many years. Over time, this secret was virtually lost. Today, not many people know of this secret. Even those masters who practice this and derive a lot of benefit, i.e. enjoying a chi flow after stance training and developing internal force, might not know of it as a secret They do so as part of their training routine.

    This secret is called "yew foong pai lau" (Cantonese pronunciation), which means "flowing breeze swaying willows". If you practice "flowing breeze swaying willows" for a short while after your stance training, you will get more than three times the benefit!
    Based on that, plus the earlier quote I gave, my question is did Sifu develop/discover the art of self manifested chi flow, as hinted in my quote a few posts back, perhaps based on a progression of flowing breeze swaying willows, or are they the same thing, or did other masters also practise this as hinted at in the quote above?

        Thank you for this - it is an awesome Q&A set. Even just glancing through, it looks like Sigung manage to squeeze in most if not all of our core training philosophy, chi kung, kungfu, taijiquan and zen, into this one set of answers. Plenty of really priceless secrets to be found there too!

        Also, thank you for sharing the source - I have used it to build my usual set of PDF and EPUB files.


        Best wishes,

        • Hi George Siheng,

          It's my favorite Q&A so far and the one I've made the most use out of. I thought it made the most sense to do it first. I love all the priceless bits of information that Sifu included in the answers as well!

          Best regards,
          -Chris

            • Time for a re read!

              If you haven't read the Q&A in some time on cleansing, building and nourishing then I can highly recommend you do for two reasons:

              1. It will deepen your understanding of your practice (even if you have read it before)
              2. It will save you valuable time in your practice (even if you have read it before)

              There are so many gems in this Q&A that it is easy to miss some first or second or even third time around. Plus, since your last reading your knowledge and experience may have also depended, so you will know get more out of re reading it.

              If this is your first time then take the time to read it.

              Enjoy!
