Nei Jia Kung Fu: Circular Division

Nei Jia Kung Fu is a term used to describe all the internal martial arts. Nei, meaning inside, and Jia referring to shape. It also refers to the practice of (or synthesis of) the sibling arts of Taiji, Xingyi, and Bagua. In this instance, circular division is a principle embedded in all three. That is, when attacking, defending, or neutralizing, these disciplines utilize circular concepts; often as a way of redirecting, throwing, or tripping. Since the Nei Jia Arts rely more on flexibility and precision (rather than speed and strength) cultivating principles such as following, hard within soft, moving in angular or circular patterns, be they hidden or overt, are essential in applying the resiliency of Nei Jia Kung Fu.

Our Chi Kung Duo

We have combined two of our best stand alone Chi Kung instructional videos to create the Chi Kung Duo (Ancient vs. Modern). The Swimming Dragon Chi Kung, is thought to have originated with the Yellow Emperor, and, with one look at its shapes and simplicity of movements (based on the Five Elemental Phases) it's easy to conclude that this may very likely be something special that has survived the ages-not to mention the fact that some people swear by the wonders it does for their spine and posture. The Soaring Crane Chi Kung was created by Zhao Jin Xiang in the 1970s, and is one of the most popular forms of Chi Kung the world over. With its specific focus on therapeutic points, patience, and stillness in movement, it rivals the chi cultivation sets of the ancients. The unique "sixth section" (or, Advanced Meditation) is a marvel amongst any and all Chi Kung practices. While we don't advocate practicing two types of Chi Kung at the same time, these two popular and useful forms of Chi Kung practice, that we have combined in the "Chi Kung Duo" are certainly worth utilizing to compare, contrast, and ultimately cultivate.
