What is it? What can it do for you?

Nei kung = "internal work", qigong, breathing, that type of stuff

No joke. Cultivating your internal energies transforms every part of your life.

But I guess you're talking about fighting.

Same answer.

No not just fighting. I saw a brief article on it. Apparently it is not popular. If you have insight please explain.

What is this, a troll attempt?

'not popular', what does this mean?

It's not a troll attempt. I'm trying to find out more about it. Your answers are vague and elusive. Do you have any info on it.

There are a couple of books on Nei Kung that you may want to check out.

A decent one that explains it in simple terms is

If my answers are vague, it's because 'neigong' is extremely broad. It's basically any practice focused on the internal processes of the body. It typically involves breathing, visualization, fine-motor control, and the guiding and circulation of energies. While there are countless regimens for meditation, qigong, etc., neigong is at its root nothing more than the purposeful and modulated experience of being.

"The Magus of Java?" -- an embarassment to internal guys everywhere.

What's neigong? At a gross level, it's qigong. However, in my experience, neigong is used to differentiate qigongs from internal systems from qigongs from external systems (AKA iron shirt or iron bell).

What will it do for you*?

Essentially, I'd have to say it depends on the exercise. I can only remark on the neigong I do regularly--15 minutes daily of the Dai family squatting monkey exercise. Since I've started doing this, I've been able to discern three benefits--better body connection, more explosive power, and better dantian motion.

FWIW, I'll periodically do one of the Chen style neigongs. What does it do? Quite frankly, it's so gentle that I doubt it does very much. It's just a nice cooldown after a hard workout.

*not that I'm particularly qualified to answer.

Nei Gong literally means internal skill or work as previously pointed out.
Anything that is internal is nei gong whether this is learning to breath correct or learning internal movements.

I have to go now my internet time is over.
