In the 1890s Grandmaster Wong broke tradition by teaching advanced chi kung, called nei kung in kungfu circles, to the public. Previously, and also now, students had to prove themselves after many years before they were taught nei kung exercises.

One of the manifestations of nei kung is Cosmos Palm. The old video below shows Grandmaster Wong's students, who were Sifu Cheng Chang Sau, Sifu Chim Chin Sin and the manager of a large supermarket in Sungai Petani whose name in not remembered now, testing out the effect of Cosmos Palm in private. These students did not practice any breaking fests before. This was the first time they attempted breaking marble, brick, sugar-cane on eggs and taufu, and crushing brick to powder.

These breaking feats were for fun. The most important reason to practice Cosmos Palm was to attain good health, vitality and longevity.
