My instructions are clear and simple, and serve as a good teacher. If you follow the instructions respectfully, including not worrying unnecessarily, you are a good student.

Hence, when an opponent attacks you with "Black Tiger Steals Heart", if you wish to speed up your counter, you can respond at the first point of time with the tactic of "no defence direct counter" using the technique "White Snake Shoots Venom". You will strike him a split second after he starts his attack. If you wish to slow him down, you can respond at the third point of time with the tactic of "first defend then counter" using "Single Tiger" and "Black Tiger". You can slow down your counter to 12 seconds.

How did students in the Northern and the Southern Temples spar?
They sparred the way we now spar - no rules but a lot of control and also a lot of laughter and fun. Like us too, injuries were rare.
Certainly they used the techniques and skills they normally practiced. They did not bounce about like Boxers or Kick-Boxers. They used Shaolin Kungfu in their sparring and fighting. We know this for sure. Some of their sparring as well as actual fighting has been recorded in text and pictures.

Breaking the Lower Brick

One of the great secrets we often emphasize is that often it is not the technique that is most important but how the technique is being practiced. In other words, it is the "how" rather than the "what" that is more important.

In the practice, we do not think of the Stillness, and we do not think of merging with the Cosmos. We just enjoy the practice. As a rough and mundane analogy, when you enjoy eating a mango, you don't think of the mango. You also don't think of eating the mango, or enjoying the eating. You just enjoy the process.

The principle came after the experience, not vice versa. In other wards, after countless occasions when Wing Choon practitioners had used this movement to defend against a thrust punch or a finger-thrust, they generalized their experiences into a principle. It was not the other way round. It was not that some smart Wing Choon master thought of a principle, then Wing Choon practitioners put this into use.

When people learn from my books or webpages and get benefits, they often think the benefits are fantastic. They know the benefits will be more if they learn from me personally, but it is difficult for them to know how much more. They may think it is a bit more, or even two or three times more. But it is difficult for them to appreciate that the difference is incomparable.

In Taijiquan sets, "Lifting Sun and Moon" is modified to "Lifting Water", which is also found at the start of virtually all Taijiquan sets.

It is a common mis-conception, even among some advanced practitioners, that internal force is necessarily soft. Just as exteranl force can be soft, internal force can also be very hard. Wing Choon and Aikido are examples of external arts that are soft. Hsing Yi Kungfu is a good example of a hard, internal martial art.

Tiger Claws

One important aspect of jabbing beans that students should know, but actually many don't. is that incorrect practice may affect the eyes. Another important aspect is that the jabbing into the beans should be performed in a relaxed manner, and not with tensed muscles as many uninitiated students usually do.

Shaolin Kungfu

A sparring mind-set is a fighting mind-set. There should not be different. We spar the way we actually fight, except of course that in friendly sparring we hold our strikes. You may, however, vary the intensity of threat in different sparring or fighting situations.

Church of Moscow

You would be impressed to know that both great masters and modern scientists say the same thing, i.e. our world is unreal! But we perceive it as "objective" due to our conditions, like how our eyes receive energy and how our collective human consciousness interprets it.
