The basic concepts of Western medicine and Chinese traditional medicine are very different, and it is difficult to have a common language. The dedication of Grandmaster Lung to find a scientific and systematic approach to martial arts, however, planted the idea in my mind to demystify traditional Chinese Kung Fu by approaching martial arts from the viewpoint of Western medicine. I hope this book will provide a simple, easy-to-follow guide for those who wish to improve their fitness.

Prof. Sydney Chung
Medical Doctor

Since I was a child, I learned Shaolin Neijia Quan from my father, and started teaching classes in the Morse Park Swimming Pool in Wong Tai Sin. From 1974 onwards, I trained generations of qualified Kung Fu instructors. The moves of Baduanjin are simple and easy to learn, and practising the exercises does not require a lot of space. It is suitable for all ages.
