Within the practice of the original Feng Shou Quan-Gongfu as taught and passed onto us by Master Chee Soo who only taught a few martial art guiding and leading (Wu Gong Daoyin) exercises to help cultivate, store and circulate the qi into the extremities for both martial arts usage and health maintenance. Master Chee Soo would always tell us that the martial art Daoyin/Qigong methods must come out of the actual movements and actions that are used both defensively and offensively in the practice of Feng Shou Quan-Gongfu. One such popular exercise that was taught by Master Chee Soo was the “Four Directions Breathing Exercise” (Si Fang Xi Fa) this was a basic pushing palm (Tui Zhang) method that promoted qi and blood flow into the both palms simultaneously. But within the LFIAA Original Feng Shou Quan-Gongfu as taught by Laoshi Keith Ewers there are a wide variety of martial art guiding and leading exercises (Wu Gong Daoyin) that are taught both slowly to gently guide and lead the qi and blood into the extremities, plus they are also performed fast to produce an explosive power (Fa Jing) into the extremities for martial art usage.
Obviously practicing the various martial art guiding & leading exercises (Wu Gong Daoyin) that are taught to students of the Original Feng Shou Quan-Gongfu does not just simply involve coordinating the breathing with certain martial art movements. It must also involve the activation of various acupuncture meridians (Jingluo) and energy points or cavity’s (Qixue) that are located on the extremities and torso. This is where the student must coordinate their mindful intent, breathing and body movements together skilfully to guide and lead their qi either into their hands or feet both for the development of health or martial art usage.
Alongside the ability to balance the concentration, breathing and body movement together within the practice of the Original Feng Shou Quan-Gongfu martial art guiding & leading methods (Wu Gong Daoyin Fa), the student must also learn how to use correct body mechanics to produce a wave like movement of energy (Qi) that travels from the feet, through the legs, torso and arms to be expressed out through the palms and fingers that produces a tremendous internal power (Nei Jing) that can be used to effectively defend ones self from an aggressive opponent.
Because the Original Feng Shou Quan-Gongfu involves the twisting of the tendons and sinews, plus the circular action of the joints both in its defensive and offensive martial art techniques, then the practice of its martial art guiding & leading exercises (Wu Gong Daoyin Fa) must emulate these same type of actions so that they become natural and the same. Uniting both the internal and external together.
