26. Exercise "PIPA"

PIPA GONG

Brief description*

*Excerpt from the book: Jin Jing Zhong. Authentic Shaolin Heritage: Training Methods of 72 Arts of Shaolin. ISBN: 978-1440474170

 

Shaolin exercise “PIPA” is also called SAN YIN ZHI – “Three Fingers of Yin” and ZHI TOU TAN - “Springy Fingers”. This exercise is specialized on strengthening the outer side of finger tips and nails. It is a “hard” exercise belonging to the YANG force, a special exercise for the development of the “flicking” force of fingers. When training fingers (in other Shaolin exercises), one finger, either the forefinger or the middle finger, is often used. In the exercise “PIPA” four fingers which do springy movements (flicks) in turn are used. It resembles playing PIPA, the Chinese guitar: as if fingers run over strings, hence that name of the exercise...

...Although this Shaolin skill belongs to “hard” force of Yang, the exact tool of QI is softness Yin, and if those two principles are linked, the skill will be superb. One must not bring the situation to a threat of life or injuries, one must not abuse this skill. Otherwise, by striking (“flicking”) with two fingers, a man can be wounded so that he will not be able to restore his health. There is the demand for modesty in the “Secret Virtue” YIN DE and a combatant, training that difficult exercise, must always keep it in mind.
