Kung Fu seminar in Ljubljana with Shifu Shi Yanzi

with one comment

Shifu Shi Yanzi 20090419_8133 Last weekend we had a Gong Fu (Kung Fu) and Chi Gong seminar with Shifu Shi Yanzi. He is a disciple of main monk in Shaolin temple in China. He become a champion of Shaolin temple only after four months because a Shaolin monk challenge him for a fight, but on surprise of everybody, he won. He was eight times champion of China and two times world champion in Sanshou. But he has a great sense of humor as well. He was describing how monks were training in the middle of the night in the woods, but then he added but be careful here in downtown of Ljubljana, because I heard you have bears. Those days a wild bear was caught in downtown of Ljubljana. For Mladina weekly (16/2009) Jure Aleksič wrote two pages article about Shifu Shi Yanzi. The seminar was organized by his student Shifu Shi Heng dao and Shaolintemple.si. On the end of the seminar several students successfully passed an exam of Gong Fu.

I love Gong Fu and Chi Gong because it’s perfect antidote to cult of conformism that our culture is promoting and I love Chi Gong as slow relaxation. I was doing for 7 years Tai Chi, but I prefer to do Gong Fu to fully push my bodily limits and Chi Gong to control my Chi. I really see the progress after every training.
