Going with the Flow

Nei Jia Kung Fu (or the internal arts of Taiji, Xingyi, and Bagua) rely on flexibility and precision to neutralize and redirect an opponent’s aggression. While the movements of the form are patterned after the Chinese character for Monkey, it is the flow, central in forming the characters, that is a constant variable in both the act of painting and the principles of Taiji, Xingyi, and Bagua. The internal styles engage the opponent’s aggression with lightness and sensitivity, maintain contact, and exploit weaknesses in the opponent’s situation.

Wu Chi Book


Comprehensive Chi Kung

The book Chi Kung, of the Wu Style written by Gerald A. Sharp and Patricia Kessler is also one of our most successful book and video combos. Wu’s Chi Kung is organized in two series as follows: The Eight Methods and the Five Elements, both of which are inter-related, yet address various aspects of chi flow and connective tissue enhancement. With over 300 illustrations, it is published in a horizontal format with a wire binding, in order to make it easy to stand up; much like an easel for easy reference during practice. Check out this highly informative and practical Chi Kung book and video special.
