SOME REAL FEELINGS ABOUT CHI (QI)
I would like to learn something simple first, preferably from books. They don't have to be the kind of Chi Kung which is profound. Just enough to convince me in the shortest possible time that Chi Kung is more than some simple moves. What I would like to have are some “real” feelings about “chi” before I go more into this ancient wisdom.

It is not our policy in Shaolin Wahnam to convince people to learn our arts. In fact it is the reverse. Intending students have to convince us that they are deserving. Nevertheless the above statements do not apply to you. Your request is reasonable and respectful. The above statements are meant for arrogant skeptics who simply shout, “Prove to me that your arts work”, but never make any effort to find out.
Actually we are quite generous. We offer the public the opportunity to experience chi kung and kungfu effects, such as chi flow, internal force and combat using typical kungfu forms, in a relatively short time — effects that many masters in the past as well as today would reserve only for their special students.
The shortest possible time for you to find out not only that chi is real but also it is profound and can do wonderful things for you, is to attend my Intensive Chi Kung Course. You will experience the reality of chi within the first 30 minutes of the course. By the end of the first day you will be able to generate your own chi flow, tap energy from the Cosmos and have a cosmic shower.
By the second day you will not only feel but actually develop internal force on your own. How do you know you have internal force? It is like asking how you know you have saliva in your mouth, or you stand on your legs. You know from direct personal experience. Only those who have no experience of internal force, or saliva in your mouth, will ask such questions.
By the end of the course on the third day you will be able to regulate the speed and nature of your chi flow, send chi to wherever you wish in your body, use chi to move your hands and legs, and massage your internal organs. You will also experience inner peace and joy. If you are ready you may even have a satori, that is a glimpse into cosmic reality, or in Western terms a meeting with God.
You don't have to pay a deposit to book a place, and you can pay the fee after the course only when you are satisfied. If you find my claims not true, or if you are dissatisfied in any way, you don't have to pay the fee. And that's it; we shall not ask what went wrong or why you were not satisfied or any questions.
If you find my course “expensive” you can learn from any of our Certified Shaolin Wahnam Instructors. You will experience chi in a very short time — often on the first day but normally not more than three weeks.
If you are not ready for a course yet, but just wish to have some chi experience to be sure that it is real, the best is to practice “Lifting the Sky” from my books. Just follow the instructions as best as you comfortably can. Do not add anything extra. If you practice daily you should feel chi within six months. This is “low-level” and it takes a “long” time if you compare to what you will experience when you personally learn from me or any of the certified Shaolin Wahnam instructors, but remarkable and fast if you consider the fact that more than 80% of people practicing chi kung or kungfu (including Taijiquan) for years have never experienced any chi at all.
The above is taken from Question 5 July 2006 Part 1 of the Selection of Questions and Answers.
