5 Tips On Shaolin Kung Fu Exercises



It was Michael Tyson's second day at​ our Kung-Fu school and I took a​ hard look at​ him. He was built like King Kong,​ was as​ hairy as​ King Kong,​ sported Mr. T's hairstyle,​ but he had Oprah Winfrey's puckered lips and Michael Jackson's kohl-lined eyes. This made me a​ wee bit suspicious of​ his intentions,​ but I was in​ full concentration mode as​ I began teaching him some basic Shaolin Kung Fu tips.

"Tyson,​ in​ Shaolin Kung Fu,​ the​ Chi (breath) must unite with the​ Li (force). Do not lose focus,​ because the​ brain must coordinate with the​ heart,​ the​ heart must coordinate with the​ mind and the​ mind must dictate the​ way you​ breathe. Persevere and you​ will be rewarded." I began educating Tyson.

"Man,​ you​ just sound like my Grandma when she's chanting hymns at​ the​ church! Ha,​ ha!" Tyson guffawed,​ his lips vibrating,​ his eyes filled with merriment. Hmm,​ Tyson was a​ casual customer.

I smiled back,​ "Thanks for that,​ Tyson. in​ Shaolin Kung Fu,​ it​ is​ necessary for the​ body to​ be agile,​ swift and packed with energy. the​ movement of​ all parts of​ the​ body must be coordinated and you​ must focus on​ your body movements. if​ you​ move forward one step,​ your hand should move,​ too,​ in​ rhythm. Even when you​ strike,​ do not focus on​ your fist or​ the​ force you​ put behind it​ – just concentrate on​ your body rhythm. Understood?"

"Dude,​ is​ this a​ ballet school or​ what? Ha,​ ha!" Tyson laughed,​ his lips puckering even more. a​ little bird flew inside my brain and told me Tyson was an​ irreverent type.

"Thanks again,​ Tyson. Now,​ pay attention: in​ Shaolin King Fu,​ the​ five elements of​ nature – wood,​ fire,​ earth,​ metal and water form a​ unique fusion during a​ fight. you​ must observe them and the​ arrangement of​ the​ universe around us. When you​ practice Shaolin Kung Fu,​ you​ will one day understand that your Chi (breath) can influence these five elements. When you​ reach that level of​ realization,​ you​ will be able to​ move very heavy objects with one movement of​ your hand or​ foot. Shaolin Kung Fu is​ that powerful,​ Tyson.

"Hey,​ buddy,​ I came here to​ be a​ fighter – I don't wanna be no weight-lugging porter,​ my friend!" Tyson continued his rocking and rolling.

Well,​ it​ was my Shaolin Kung Fu training that helped me maintain my cool. Otherwise,​ Michael Tyson would have been toast by now with a​ lot of​ jam on​ him,​ "Tyson,​ please pay attention – So far,​ you​ have learned that in​ Shaolin Kung Fu,​ you​ have to​ focus on​ your breath and your body movements while observing and connecting with the​ five elements of​ nature. Now here's the​ fourth tip: Shaolin Kung Fu requires you​ to​ be an​ expert in​ fist work. you​ must move your arms in​ such a​ way that the​ enemy cannot get sight of​ your fist. Your arms and fists must move at​ the​ speed of​ light and for that to​ happen,​ you​ will have to​ train your sinews in​ such a​ way that when you​ punch,​ your arm must glide like a​ bird landing on​ a​ lake."

"Sure,​ leg movements are important too: in​ fact,​ there are seven kinds of​ leg movements in​ Shaolin Kung Fu,​ but we'll come to​ them later on." I continued.

"Got any cool underarm movements,​ eh,​ Balboa boy?" Tyson sniggered,​ looking at​ me with come-hither eyes. I wished he'd get pregnant and go away.

"Okay,​ Tyson,​ this is​ your last tip for the​ day: in​ Shaolin Kung Fu,​ your eyes,​ ears and heart must be in​ perfect rhythm. Your eyes must follow the​ enemy's movements and your ears should be sharp enough to​ detect the​ slightest of​ sounds – this,​ while your heart is​ steady,​ cool and calm. if​ you​ are able to​ achieve this state,​ you​ will not make mistakes. That's enough for today Tyson,​ class over. Now join me for a​ round of​ Shaolin Kung Fu sparring."

"Hey Balboa,​ whatever you​ say! Hee,​ hee" Tyson said grinning ear to​ ear,​ not knowing what was coming at​ him.

That was the​ last time Tyson ever fooled around in​ Kung Fu class. And in​ case you​ are wondering,​ no,​ I didn't kill him – but that's another story.
