Grandmaster Tse’s Chùn Yuén Dairies 俊元日記 10

Kung Fu considers fighting and good health, and it considers if we win or if we lose.

Principles of Chùn Yuén Quán

Part 2

We can hold the posture of any of the movements Chùn Yuén Quán 俊元拳, and this will bring up our energy, train the arms, legs, waist, back, in fact the whole body. Then the internal Qì氣 will automatically be strong. Bones and Qì are connected. When the posture is good, the bones will be good and therefore the Qì will be strong. This means our health will benefit. All traditional Chinese skills, not just Kung Fu, consider many other aspects. Kung Fu considers fighting and good health, and it considers if we win or if we lose. In the end, it is more than just fighting, it is a philosophy about balance, about how do we keep everything well so it can last longer. So practice is about the bones, bones are about the Qì and Qì is about everything.

The second principle of Chùn Yuén Quán is relaxation. We cannot have a good posture without relaxation, this is balance. If we try to hold a position without relaxation we will become exhausted, but if we can hold a position and relax the body then the body and the mind will benefit, keeping it healthy and allow it to last longer.
