Brief description*

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

 

The Four-Part exercise is a base one both in the soft and hard GONG FU of 72 Kinds of the Shaolin Martial Art. It has much in common with a known method of health improvement “Eight Pieces of Brocade” worked out by marshal Yue Fei during the rule of the dynasty of SUN. Before studying the very combat technique (WU SHU) one should train the Rider’s stance (MA BU) and Step (movement) technique. The training stirs up interest in a man and he oftener trains himself. Then, it will not be long before the result appears. Those exercises do not need much space. Although the method is simple, its meaning is deep. We give full description of the Shaolin Four-Part exercise. Successive and regular training leads to good health and long life...

<...>

...Although the Shaolin exercise “Four parts” is short, but it is necessary to train it with a pure and quiet heart, concentrate force and attention, breathing should be freely. One must not “force” (control) breathing, one must not “conceal” (hold) breathing either. If you “force” (control) breathing excessively, breath and QI deplete and holding breath undermines QI. It is necessary to do a deep exhalation when tilting down. When you support the sky with your arms, the fingers of both hands should be interlocked, then QI will come to finger tips. It is better, if you can raise your heel a little (i.e. stand on tiptoe). When the palms touch the floor, it is necessary to avoid excessive application of force, otherwise the kidney may be injured. Don’t stop halfway, don’t be afraid of making progress. All movements should be done slowly with a certain force. You do not achieve success in haste, don’t strive for a quick result. In the course of training you will not only improve your health and spirit but also lay a solid base for further improvement in Shaolin GONG FU.
