Today people do things only thinking about themselves. As a result, society is getting more selfish. At school children are not taught how to be a good person. They are only taught about making money. This is wrong and so society has more criminals and bad things are happening all the time.
Through learning Qigong and martial arts, we learn how to discipline ourselves and be patient. Thus we become better people as we train our "hearts" to be better. Our teachers educate us and show us not only the skill, but also how to be a better person.
Today many people love Chinese m ar t i al a rt s , p h i lo s o ph y, Q i g on g, Taijiquan, Feng Shui, Chinese Astrology etc. however, if you do not learn about the culture they came from, then you will not reach a very high level of skill.
Chinese Culture is based on Daoism, Buddhism and Confucianism. All of these teach you how to respect people and nature. Anyone who is older than you or has more knowledge than you, such as your parents and teachers, should be shown respect. Those people who are on the same level as you, like yourfriends and classmates, you can treat as you like, as long as you remember that you should

¿fair 3-f treat them as you would like to be treated. If you can think "vice versa" then you will be okay, do not just think about yourself.
Anyone who is younger than yourself, you should take care of and educate, and you should not put other people down.
If we followed this rule, then society would be much better and we would not need more policemen and prisons.
The main difference between human being and animals is human beings have a "heart". We have compassion, love and can find out if things are right and wrong. Animals do not have this. They just do anything they want. But today human beings often act worse than animals.
Dayan (Wild Goose) Qigong is my teacher, Grandmaster Yang Meijun's family skill. It is not something that should be used for making money, but is for helping people. The skill should be passed down by people who have a good heart and are qualified. It is not just for anyone to just learn and teach. Today, there are many people teaching Dayan Qigong incorrectly. They do not care about the consequences of their actions and the fact that other people might be harmed.
Secondly, they produce books and videos which do not have the proper detail and again might cause people harm.
I wish these people would think about others first, not just about making money and promoting their names. When their students buy books and videos they will find out that these self proclaimed teachers are not qualified to teach by Grandmaster Yang Meijun. Thus they will only embarrass themselves. Also people will talk and so their reputation and future will be ruined.
Studying Qigong without the right heart is not good and you and your students can also suffer from the results.
Having reported the position to Grandmaster Yang Meijun she has asked that the this announcement to be published.
Accordingly anyone studying Dayan Gong, who wishes to check the credentials of their teacher please supply me with full details at the Tse Qigong Centre in order that I may pass this information to Grandmaster Yang Meijun.
Announcement From Grandmaster Yang Meijun
"I acknowledge the following people as my Dayan (Wild Goose) Qigong instructors who are qualified to teach Dayan Qigong:
Chinese Dayan Qigong Hong Kong Association:
Mr Chen Kee Sang & Mr Chen Kim Fung
USA: Lui Wai Lu, Hu Bing Kun
UK/Europe: Mr Tse Wei Jing (Michael Tse)
Other people do not have my permission to teach, produce Dayan Qigong videos, books and have stolen my photographs and published them. They are also damaging the name and image of Dayan Qigong.
They are also damaging those people (students) who wish to benefit from studying Dayan Qigong. Therefore these people (who are teaching) are fully responsible for the actions and the consequences of them.
Now I assign Mr Tse Wei Jing (Michael Tse) to help me deal with all these matters.
