WaLu Gong Fu was created by Chris Casey, also known as Kai Sai. It is a continuation of the Art Jeet Kun Do that Bruce Lee started. WaLu uses Taiji, Xing Yi, Bagua, and Wing Chung to gain internal power. These arts combined with monkey boxing and grappling create a well-rounded system capable of bringing any martial artist to the highest success.
WaLu Kung Fu is one of the quickest combat systems to teach a student the lethal projection of energy in martial arts. The focus of the movements is not in the independent movement of the limbs.
The limbs are simply conduits for the whole body to express the explosive energy through them. In other words, the arms are used in a unitary manner and not in an isolated state. In WaLu you learn to slosh all of your body weight into the limb that you are using to attack your opponent. When you are performing WaLu properly, every strike, block, and kick creates a mind-hit shock to the attacker.
The only way you can create shock force is once you have achieved a totally relaxed, fluid body state. Relax even on impact and never, ever tense your body for an instant during an attack. Your hand strikes are "armless striking" and your kicks are called "legless kicking".
The emphasis in this terminology is to focus the mind on the relaxed unitary nature of the limbs and not to think of your arms or legs in a tense segmented fashion. It is an advanced system for developing the neurological pathways in the brain to allow the mind to express the shock force mental energy through a unitary, fluid body state.
WaLu is a mind-dominant art. If your mind has trained your brain to develop tense, neurological pathways for combat, then, you will not experience the incredible explosive power that is present in your mind right now. If you feel your body tense at any time during your training, you are training in body-dominant art and you are cheating yourself from a whole new world of energy development. WaLu is a new way of thinking about energy projection.
WaLu's advanced energy mastery system will transform your body into a pure energy channel for power. Given the animalistic nature of the Walu movements, the art is not designed for sports application. WaLu is not for winning trophies in a tournament or grappling an opponent to get them into a submission hold. This is not to say that all of that training is unfruitful.
WaLu is the direct descendant evaluation of Jeet Kune Do. Jeet Kune Do means "the way of the intercepting fist" also known as the "stop hit". WaLu is energy that explodes from internal energy, creating what is called Fajing. It is a synthesis of BaguaZang, Xingiquan, and Taijiquan combined with yoga work for a complete system of internal Kung Fu.
Its emphasis is on developing the mind of the warrior, on the mind's ability to train the body to remain in a relaxed, heavy, nonsegmented, unitary, changeable, fluid-like state in combat. When you are fighting a WaLu student, it is like trying to nail Jell-O to a wall.
Its 50 energy mastery movements totally reprogram your brain's neurological energy pathways to allow for uninhibited, maximum energy projection. There are 10 energy mastery principles. WaLu is not technique based. Everything WaLu teaches can be subsumed under 10 energy principles. WaLu also has an emphasis on creating Fajing, for example, the shock force power versus push force power. It also has a dog boxing curriculum.
