Introduction ~ Qigong
Chi Kung, or Qigong, has been around for thousands
of years and predates even the martial arts.
There are also thousands of different kinds of Chi
Kung, with many different uses and applications. China Hand
Kung Fu Academy teaches health oriented Chi Kung and martial
oriented Chi Kung.
Health oriented Chi Kung has no application or use but to
make the body healthy, strong, and vibrant. Martial
oriented Chi Kung will have the same effects but the methods
of training are also tied directly to Martial Self Defense.
If you do an internal style of martial arts, you are
doing "Chi Kung." Today, more people are teaching internal
styles of Kung Fu, such as Tai Chi Chuan, but emphasize more
the Chi Kung health side of the training because of the
benefits derived from its' practice.
