EARLE'S VING CHUN KUEN - THE ART OF INVINCIBILITY

FROM THE INSTRUCTORS COFFEE HOUSE

INSIDE REAL KUNGFU

Do you understand what is real kungfu?

If you just said "yes" then don't read any further

I can't help you

"How can I know if I am practising Real Kungfu?"

Thankfully there are several guiding principles to practicing


TRU​E KUNGFU


True K​ungfu is (1) rooted in the feet like a tree

(2) IT develops in the legs

(3) IT is directed by the waist

And (4) IT is transmitted through the fingers


This ancient saying of "True Kungfu", is foundational to all Chinese Kungfu, not just to one particular system. To begin to recognise if one is practising "Real Kungfu" one can use this ancient saying to help them identify it. However, since different systems may employ different methods, one must first understand the depth of its meaning, and then understand it within the context of the principles employed by their method.

Then one might ask, "What is IT? What is rooted in the feet? What develops? What is directed? What is transmitted? What is this True Kungfu?" The answer is "CHI". Now one might begin to understand why "IT", or Chi, is foundational to all Chinese Kungfu.


But not just to martial training. Chi is universal. Chi is foundational to all life. Chi is the Essence of life. CHI is the universal essence of life, being a continual cycle of chaos and order, returning to chaos again, and so the cycle repeats.


CHI - LIFE FORCE

YES, Chi is Life Force - that spark which ignites at the moment of conception.

 

CHI - BREATH

YES, Chi is breath - the cycle of breath which begins at the moment one is born

without breath ones Life Force would immediately be extinguished.


CULTIVATING CHI

Once sustained by your Mother, now you are responsible for

the energy - your chi - used in the ebb and flow of

your breath and maintaining your Life Force


your energy chi is cultivated and restored through the food

you eat, the air you breathe, and thru physical endeavor


CHI - ENERGY

YES, Chi is energy. YES Chi is breath. YES Chi is Life Force

Chi is the essence of life and is replenished thru cultivation
