After many years of learning and teaching Kung Fu, it’s time to go back to the roots and learn the prototype of Shaolin Kung Fu. I embarked on a journey back to the roots! I didn’t even have to leave my garden for it, but it was a journey back in time, accompanied by modern technical aids. Now, if that isn’t the harmony of Yin and Yang ☯! In my new YouTube series, you can follow along as I learn a historic Kung Fu set (a sequence of techniques) and learn a lot about Kung Fu philosophy yourself. I also share some tips that I use to work through and internalize complicated things. Preparation is ..read more

However, this term is not to be taken literally, but simply means "negative side effects". To avoid these, it's important to find a good teacher and follow their instructions. In general, Qi Gong is a very safe practice. In Shaolin Wahnam, we also have our safety valve, the “Qi Flow”, which immediately eliminates any unwanted effects, if they even arise. So, don’t be ..read more

You surely know that moment early in the morning. You wake up and stretch your body whilst letting a hearty sound of yawning or moaning fill the room and enjoying the relieving feeling. Most probably, you don’t think “I should lift my arms up at an angle of 78 degrees, then turn my torso in a counter-clockwise direction to stretch my latissimus and re-align my c4 vertebra. Hmm, what sound would be appropriate this morning? Should I use a loud ‘Huaaaa’ sound or rather a rumbling ‘Hrmm’?” Nope. You just do what your body wants.   We’re rarely in this natural state of being. Most of the time ..read more

"Is it normal for my body to enter a gentle vibration after practicing?" "My hands feel heavy now, but in a pleasant way." "I feel so grounded. I stand much firmer on the ground."   These are just a few of the comments I regularly hear from my students.   Some accompanying effects of powerful Qi Gong Many doubt the existence of Qi, the invisible yet life-giving energy. For those who have practiced high-quality Qi Gong for some time, this question eventually ceases to arise, as they experience this energy and its power for themselves.

This legendary set of Qi Gong exercises was taught to the monks at the Shaolin temple by the Venerable Bodhidharma, the first patriarch of Zen Buddhism (or Chan in Chinese) about 1,500 years ago. The exercises provide a wide range of benefits on health, performance, martial arts and spiritual cultivation.   Where does the name come from? It is said, when Gautama Buddha left this world, he left behind 500 enlightened disciples, called “Arahant” or “Arahat” in Sanskrit, an ancient language spoken in India at the time of the Buddha. By the way, 500 is just a figurative number to represent “a ..read more

Authentic Energy Work or cheap Imitation? Understanding an art is a mixture of acquired knowledge and personal experience. Thanks to direct transmission and written records, the Shaolin arts represent the accumulated knowledge of countless masters over 1,500 years. Unfortunately, they were initially banned by the Communist Party during the Cultural Revolution in China and later revived in a superficial, appearance-focused version.
