Dear Tse Sifu,
Could you please give me some advice regarding my Qigong practice? I am 16 years old and currently practice Zhuan Zhuang style Qigong and have been for several months now. It is recommended by masters that I should practice my Qigong for up to 20 minutes each day. At first this was very difficult, however, now it seems to be getting much easier. In fact, I often seem to persevere for much longer than is recommended, often standing for over 40 minutes. I would like to know if this could at all be detrimental to my health or if in fact, it should be encouraged.
I thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply. Also, I enjoy your column in Combat magazine; is it possible that you could write an article on hard Qigong? I am extremely interested in learning a style but I have never found a teacher - I live in Leicestershire in the midlands. Thank you again for your time, G.K
Thank you for your letter. I will try to write some more Hard Qigong articles this next year in Combat and also Qi Magazine so keep a look for them. Regarding Zhuan Zhuang, this is a very good meditation style which can help make your legs and kidneys very strong as it creates a lot of internal energy in the body. My Taijiquan teacher, Grandmaster Chen Xiaowang, can stand in the posture easily everyday for over an hour. His body is very powerful and strong. Yours sincerely, Michael Tse
