Qi Gong

Qi Gong (Chi Kung in English) is considered as an ancient Chinese contemplation. The word Qi (Chi) can be translated into "breath" which can refer to the energy in your body. The word Gong (Kung) means "achievement". Benefits of practicing Qi Gong can include curing diseases like asthma, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer, enhancing internal energy, promoting vitality and longevity, and opening the mind and increasing intellectual capabilities.

According to contents, Qi Gong can be classified into dynamic Qi Gong (movements such as Tai Chi boxing and five animal exercise) and static Qi Gong (the body stays still like sitting exercise and stake-standing exercise).

According to the geographical area, Qi Gong can be classified into Mount Song Shaolin Qi Gong (deeply influenced by Buddhism with lively, simple, powerful, free, And vigorous styles), Sichuan Emei Qi Gong (influenced by both Taoism and Buddhism, combining dynamic exercise, static exercise, medicine, and the exercise of Qi, absorbing all kinds of techniques and folk methods, and is very nimble), Hubei Wu Dang Qi Gong (emphasizing softness and tranquility and paying attention to the exercise of spirit and Qi).

According to the schools, Qi Gong can be classified into Taoism Qi Gong (stressing the diversity of Yin and Yang and the five elements, combined with medicine, and paying more attention to the relationship between humans and nature), Confucian Qi Gong (placing emphasis on the purification and cultivation of morality, ethics, and integrity), and Buddhism Qi Gong (a method of practicing Buddhism, emphasizing paying attention to one's mental state when practicing, and eliminating all distractions and purify the body and mind through Zen meditation).

According to the methods and postures of exercises, Qi Gong can be classified into stake-standing exercise (one of the traditional internal exercises involves maintaining a standing position in certain postures), sitting exercise (the body maintains a sitting posture when practicing), and lying exercise (the body maintains a sleeping posture when practicing).

Shaolin Kung Fu

Shaolin Kung Fu (少林功夫) is, without a doubt one of the most popular styles of Kung Fu. This style started at Shaolin temple which dates back to 495 anno Domini. Realms of practicing Shaolin Kung Fu can be divided into three realms. In primary realm, the students practice their form and body appearance.

For intermediate realm, students practice integration of mind and fist. Also, they practice turning tangibles into intangibles, and they do not have to obey any rules in this realm or even they do not have to follow any movements. The advanced realm is considered as the highest realm in Shaolin Kung Fu and it is based on fighting from form instead of formless.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi 太极拳 (simply Tai Chi or Tai Chi Quan) is a Chinese martial art and a form of Chinese boxing that practiced throughout the world, and the number of Tai Chi trainees are increasing nowadays because of its health effects. China is a large country. In ancient times, the travel throughout the country was inconvenient, so each region formed its unique culture. Because of limited interaction among Chinese people of various regions, in ancient times, many styles, schools, and skills of Tai Chi were formed.

The most popular Tai Chi styles are Chen style, Yang style, Wu (Z to Q) style, Sun style, and Wu (Y to H) style. Chen style is the oldest style of Tai Chi, created by the retired general Chen (1600 to 1680). This style is known for its combination of both soft and firm and the combination of quick and slow movements as well as using strong foot and leg pushing.

Yang style is created by Master Yang (1799 to 1872). This style is known for its standardized format, slow, and relaxed movements. This style is easy to learn and its movements are attractive, thus it is considered the most popular style of Tai Chi. Master Wu (Wu, Zhen-Quan) is a key master who developed Wu (Z to Q) style. It is modified from Yang style and features a small range of quick and relaxed movements, also the upper part of the body is slightly inclined forward during practice.

Sun style was developed by Master Sun (Sun, Lutang; 1860 to 1933). This style is known for its combination of the skills and methods of other Chinese martial arts such as Xingyiquan, and Baguazhang, so its footwork moves much faster and it contains more frequent back and forth movements.

Master Wu (Wu, Yu-Hsiang; 1812 to 1880) created Wu (Y to H) style, which is known for its slow and small range of body movements as well as lesser bending of the knee and limited reach of hands and arms. Tai Chi movements have four characteristics. The first one is soft and continuous movements like a slow-moving river. Next, calm and quiet movements that are similar to a slow-moving river pursuing a state of calmness since the Chinese people believe that if a person relaxes his or her mind then the Qi (internal energy) will become calm.

The third characteristic is movements which are relaxed. Your whole body must be relaxed and move in a natural way and your mind must be relaxed in order to relax your whole body. Last but not least, movements must be circular. It is rare to see a straight-forward movement in Tai Chi. Instead, movements in Tai Chi follows paths of circles or canvas.

Tai Chi has shown to improve many of physiological and psychological aspects of chronic diseases, and it is considered an effective way of promoting balance, cardiorespiratory fitness, and flexibility in adults and young people. Tai Chi helps in reducing the blood pressure. Many pieces of evidence support that Tai Chi helps improve the balance and postural stability and a number of studies found that Tai Chi is effective in reducing the fear of falling.

There is also an evidence that supports the effectiveness of Tai Chi in reducing osteoarthritis pain. It has been found that Tai Chi may be helpful for improving the balance and physical function of people who live with osteoarthritis.

If you want to learn Tai Chi, you have to ask yourself, which style you want to learn. If you want to learn all styles of Tai Chi, the number of teachers will be limited but here, in Tancheng Chanwu International Kung Fu school, there are qualified Tai Chi masters who can teach you all aspects of Tai Chi. The other requirements include watching, asking, listening, reading, and above all practicing. By watching your master and fellow students, it is also crucial to ask questions and your teachers will give you right answers and the most helpful advice.

Wing Chun

Wing Chun is the traditional style of Chinese Kung Fu, born in southern provinces such as Guandong and Fujian. There are many stories about the founder of this style and one of these stories mentions that a female Shaolin master called Wu Mei (Ng Mui) founded Wing Chun style. She was considered a great Chinese master during the Qing Dynasty (1644 to 1911).

When the government put the southern Shaolin temple on fire, five great masters in the southern Shaolin temple (Wu Mei, Zhi Shan, Bai Mei, Feng Dao De, and Miao Xian) begun fighting the enemy and managed to escape from hands of the government. After her escape, Wu Mei hid in Daliang mountain and continued her Kung Fu practices.

One day, accidentally she saw a fighting between a snake and a crane. This inspired her to create her own unique style. After that, she trained Yan Yong Chun (Yim Wing Chun) in this style, then Wing Chun organized and spread this style thus this style is known today as Wing Chun.

Wing Chun has several forms including xiao nian tou, 12 san shi, xun qiao, biao zhi, and wooden dummies and empty poles.
