Made for PC's they are also Mac compatible by downloading Quicktime (for free) and any similar VCD player program.Also playable on most DVD players. For less than $10.00? Wow!

Chi Kung (QiGong)

The phrase Chi Kung (which is actually a new designation, not classical) covers many aspects indeed. With over 3000 styles extant in China there are so many faces to Chi Kung which most people are unaware of that speaking intelligently of the subject can be difficult. Some forms take self massage, some forms standing practice, some are carnival type demonstrations of "amazing skills" some develop truly amazing skills. The most basic designation is martial, health and transcendence (spiritual). These are the three types handed down as general divisions for centuries. Again, the fact that Chi Kung literally means "breath work" should not be over emphasized since it is a modern term. Nei Kung (internal work) is more accurate and encompasses more nuance.

Bafa  QigongVCD#1419 Shaolin BaFa Ying Gong (hard Qigong)
About an hour, VCD pricing, Chinese Only
Quantity

Despite the incredible flexibility stunt on the cover of this VCD it is essentially about Iron Palm conditioning. Many exercises are shown and details including rubbing liniment all over the hands before practice. This is a neat "throw back" VCD that looks like old Iron Palm training books. Iron fist is also shown and  many other exercises. One of these is the classic four hanging bags East, West, North South. Another is the heavy bag for kicking. Some of the palm patterns are traditional and common, others, such as the "dancing palm" are not well known.  Everything is authentic and traditional though.

Golden Bell Kung Fu

VCD#1265 Golden Bell Exercises
About an hour, VCD pricing, Chinese Only

Quantity

"Jin Zhong Zhao" is the Chinese name of Golden Bell Qigong. This series comes from the Song Dynasty from Tong Zhou. In the Ming period it was linked by Tao Shi Deng Kun Lun to WuDang (Tai He) Kung fu. This is one stage of Iron Body training - also known as the Golden Bell as in this case - which is a combination of breathing, dynamic tension and striking exercises. The strikes here may seem a little light because in this series, with this painted background all the sound tracks are re-dubbed with a professional narrator and the normal sound tracks are removed. Do the striking doesn't "sound." At the end of this series there is self striking down with wooden instruments and something like the cover is replicated. Nor recommended for those prone to headaches.

Iron ShirtVCD#1266 Five Phoenix Iron Shirt Work
About an hour, VCD pricing, Chinese Only

Quantity

Tie Bu Shan. Iron Shirt training is an important part of many Kung Fu systems. Developed slowly over the centuries it can be broken down into a general schema: introduce the movement, introduce the breathing, show the Jing or energy, focus the mind and then strike the body or have the body struck. It is important to know that these different levels were not always taught at once. So this version of the Iron Shirt excludes the striking practice. It can still be considered Iron Shirt training though more for health preservation than fighting. This method is said to have been passed from Tong Zhou (in the Song Dynasty) and then refined by Tao Shi (priest) Deng Kun Len during the Ming Dynasty.

Choy Lai Fut  QigongVCD#306 Choy Lai Fut 6 Breaths Ball
About an hour, VCD pricing, Chinese Only
Quantity


WuYun 6 Breaths BaGua Ball. A very unusual and interesting Chi Kung. To our eyes this one harkens back to the kind of Kung Fu we rarely see any more, village and "beneficent society" rather than urban or military. A big ball is placed in the middle of the room and the set is done "to" the ball using the spherical shape as a model for movements. Certainly more Hei Kung than fighting but with CLF's lucid and strong flavor nonetheless. This is actually an important VCD for those who can see.
