Jin Jing Zhong. Authentic Shaolin Heritage: Training Methods of 72 Arts of Shaolin /Tanjin, 1934/

The book was written in 1934 with blessing and direct participation of the Abbot of the Shaolin Monastery Reverend Miao Xing nicknamed "Golden Arhat", one of the best Shaolin fighters of all times. The book presents full description of exercises and requirements to their execution, as well as the fundamentals of training theory of 72 Shaolin Arts.

The book is devoted to the most enigmatic and little-known aspect of training of Shaolin monks. Training methods described in the book allow to develop supernatural abilities, far beyond abilities of an ordinary man. In the course of many centuries the methods were the base and core of Shaolin combat training, the most secret part carefully hidden from strangers. 

However, after a huge fire in 1928 that burnt down Shaolin and a greater part of its records the situation changed. An acute problem of preserving the Shaolin heritage for future generations arose. Most probably, it was the principle reason which made Shaolin Abbot Miao Xing reveal one of the main secrets of Shaolin to the public...(Show more)

"...Since my young years till now, for 50 years, I have been learning from Masters. 
I am happy that I have earned the love of my tutors who passed on me the Shaolin Mastery…"
 
Lam Sai Wing

This form (TAO), known as "Tiger & Crane Double Form", was created in the late XIXth century by Lam Sai Wing's teacher, an unrivalled master Wong Fei Hung. The Tiger's extremely tough, fierce and lightning-fast attack are balanced against and supplemented by the softer and smoother techniques of the Crane. The "hard" and the "soft" combine in a harmony. A lot of attention is given to real-life combat application of the techniques in question...(Show more)

A master of the Iron Thread can withstand, with no consequences, the strongest of blows, including ones with heavy objects or cold steel arms, bend thick iron rods with his hands, and his "rooting power" is so strong that he cannot be displaced by a group of strong people. In addition, this wonderful method strengthens all internal organs, bones, muscles and sinews...(Show more)

Now many exercises presented in the book are almost lost and practiced by very few people. However, earlier they were an integral part of training in traditional schools of Chinese Martial Arts...

The book covers "External" (WAI) and "Internal" (NEI) training methods practiced by traditional schools of the "Shaolin family" (SHAOLIN PAI). The following proverb has been passed down from generation to generation of people who were occupied in martial arts: "Strength can not overcome Style, Style can not overcome Mastery (GONG FU)." There is one more saying: "Style is the flesh of Mastery, Mastery (GONG FU) is the skeleton of Style."...(Show more)

This problem was successfully solved by him. Now those who have no tutor can train themselves with the aid of the book as if a flesh-and-blood tutor is beside them.

"...Those who learn the Martial Art first of all should pay attention to proper stances and positions. In ancient time, when learning the martial art at the initial stage, first of all they paid attention to mastering proper stances, not to exercises in blows and movements. Only after a disciple learned how to stand, he was taught other techniques, as that section (stances) he must acquire deeply and thoroughly. Deep comprehension is impossible without studying fundamentals"...(Show more)
