SECRETS OF BUILDING INTERNAL FORCE

Internal Force

Course Participants practicing the Horse-Riding Stance



What is the secret of the internal force masters? It is zhan zhuang, or stance training. Stance training is the one most important category of exercises to develop internal force. It also develops mental clarity and spiritual joys.

The main Shaolin stances are shown here, namely Horse-Riding, Bow-Arrow, False-Leg, Unicorn, Triangle, Single-Leg and Goat Stance.

There are only two steps in stance training. Firstly, make sure that the posture is correct. Then follow the three golden rules, namely relax, relax and relax.
