    Well, Tam Tui is really good for conditioning.

    I was looking for a video on line of a simple exercise. I can't find it, dinner's ready and I'm running of to conquer the world. But I'll be back, and conquer that too.

    That video of exercises posted above is great. I'll work on those... that guy is amazing.
    One good exercise... a variation of a horse stance I heard about. Horse stance squats... sounds familiar. They (kung fu tai chi magazine) also had leaning horse stance squats. Even one legged squats. All (according to them) practiced at the Shaolin Temple.

    You have to be kidding me

    that book is full of more crap than fact. It is the boon of many real teachers who have real material to train their students with.

    Most of the book is full of things that are dangerous and could lead to serious health issues if anyone was silly enough to attempt certain drills.

    I have had a collection of people call me up and ask me if they could get a formula for training their head gung. I had another call me up and ask me how he could toughen up his fingers from the pulling the nail gung in order to rip flesh off people. Dear lord, those calls were hard to deal with.

    It seems there are more people who think this book is fact versus the fiction it obviously is.

    Now my addendum is not all traditional methods are good. Some are outdated and need to be discarded. These old ones are the things that give CMA a bad name.

    This silly manual
    details some interesting things and some far fetched ones.

    Amazon.com: 72 Consummate Arts Secrets of the Shaolin Temple (Chinese Kung-Fu Series): Wu Jiaming, Yang Yinrong, Rou Gang: Books

    $40.00?

    Good lord I'm glad I bought that a long time ago.

    Like my former kenpo instructor used to say,"Those guys must've been smoking alot of opium when they thought that one up!"
