CHI FLOW AND ZEN
In Shaolin Wahnam, every movement in Shaolin Kungfu and Wahnam Taijiquan is a training of energy and mind. In other works, Shaolin Kungfu and Wahnam Taijiquan are always practiced as chi kung and meditation. This video clip taken at random during the Intensive Shaolin Kungfu Course in Malaysia in November 2004 at the completion of a footwork training session provides an example.
In Shaolin Wahnam, footwork training is also a training of energy and mind. At the end of a footwork training session at the course, students went into chi flow and standing meditation. Sifu Wong is seen encouraging Ismael from Ecuador to flow with the chi.
The chi flow movement here is described poetically as “Yew Foong Pai Lau” (Cantonese pronunciation), or “Flowing Breeze and Swaying Willows”, an important kungfu term that is sometimes heard but rarely understood. Sifu Darryl Collett of Scotland, however, is seen enjoying a vigorous and interesting chi flow.
