These kung fu systems all share similar characteristics and utilise traditionally Chinese methods to unite the body and mind whilst conditioning muscles and tendons.
KEEPING KUNG FU REAL THROUGH INTERNAL ARTS.
Internal kung fu doesn't rely on hard (external) methods to develop physical strength or use brute strength to overcome opponents, however, do not think of Internal Kung Fu as easy or soft, the training can be strenuous and quite exhausting. I have often been told how surprised a student was with the amount of effort it took to complete the exercises, when considering how little they were doing.
When practising Internal Kung Fu you spend a lot of your time working on coordination, control, focusing the mind and breathing.
Internal Kung Fu is extremely challenging and usually attracts people with a good foundation in martial arts.
Taiji, Bagua and Xingyi are much more than exercise or fighting, they can affect your entire life. Through practising internal kung fu one can develop many varied skills and improve health of the mind and body.
