Solidity of Horse-Riding Stance

Although Sifu Andrew Barnettt of Shaolin Wahnam Switzerland is tall and huge, that is not the reason why another person cannot pull him off from his Horse-Riding Stance. The reason is that due to his dedicated “zhang zhuang”, or stance training, Sifu Andrew Barnett has successfully grounded his chi so that he is “solid like a rock”.

Many of us may have read in kungfu classics about this effect of stance training and, may have found it hard to believe. It is heartening that Sifu Andrew Barnett can demonstrate this feat in real life. But of course to be solid like a rock is not the main reason for dedicated stance training. The main reason is to develop internal force, which is not just for martial arts but for maintaining and enriching life and enhancing whatever we do.
