China Hand Kung Fu Family Tree
There are lineages for different types of Chi Kung. Grandmaster Peter Kwok made it easy by saying you should do Universal Post for 1 hour each day.
Peter had many teachers throughout his life and his favorite, and best, Tai Chi teacher was Kuo Lien Ying probably influenced his choosing the Univeral Post because he is known for standing in that posture.

Universal Post from I Chuan
from Tai Chi Boxing Chronicles written by Kuo Lien Ying
The universal post is a mystical form of martial arts
We can never fully understand the way it is done
It seems like an embrace with a smiling face
You use your strength from within
You are relaxed and use no force
It is like clouds floating in the wind from all directions
You use forces from the universe to substantiate your strength
Your strength comes from your breathing
You do not hold fast, leaving a lot of room to move
You do not bend to greater strength
So smoothly you move and so naturally
Your breathing and your limb movements should not be impeded
It is like moving in space
In and out of the highest peaks and clouds
Gliding through air and clouds
Floating along with the winds
Graceful yet composed
Always contain calmness and peace
Head upheld high with pride
You embrace the world below you
As clear and pure as an underground brook
Like lead turning into silver spinning to the moon
Looking into an antique mirror to look deep into your soul
Your cup is filled to the brim
Absolutely free of restraint and free of self
You could fly as though you had wings
Head towards the limitless horizon
Like throwing a pebble into water
The circles get larger and larger
With your hands you push open the limits of the universe
You embrace from within
Heaven and earth and the ten thousand things capture your thoughts
The eyes look outside with determination
Up and down your strength flows
You push and you embrace continuously
Your thoughts should be pure
This should clear your mind
This should curb all illness
You always return to the center
You can attack or defend at will
You must have a will of iron
The principle of this is to strengthen
To go for happiness and health
Your body will benefit from this
This has been handed down from the ancients
This form of exercise can help you without limits
China Hand Kung Fu Academy is dedicated to passing on the art of Chi Kung or Meditation. Chi Kung, or Qigong, has been around for thousands of years and predates even the martial arts. There are also thousands of different kinds of Chi Kung, with many different uses and applications. China Hand Kung Fu Academy teaches health oriented Chi Kung and martial oriented Chi Kung.
Health oriented Chi Kung has no application or use but to make the body healthy, strong, and vibrant. Martial oriented Chi Kung will have the same effects but the methods of training are also tied directly to Martial Self Defense.
If you do an internal style of martial arts, you are doing "Chi Kung." Today, more people are teaching internal styles of Kung Fu, such as Tai Chi Chuan, but emphasize more the Chi Kung health side of the training because of the benefits derived from its' practice.
The benefits of doing Chi Kung are:
Stress ReductionStrengthening of Muscles
Stretching of Muscles, Ligaments & Tendons
Lowers Blood Pressure
Improves Balance, Arthritis, Osteoprosis, Cardiovascular & Nuerological system..
and the list goes on and on...
"As copied from The Complete Book of Chinese Health and Healing by Daniel Reid"
Li Ching-Yuen was born in 1678, during the seventeenth year of the Manchu Emperor Kang Shi's Reign. He left home at an early age and traveled around southern China with a group of itinerant herb traders, from whom he learned the basics of herbalism.
Subsequently, Li had the good fortune to meet several highly accomplished Taoist masters, who taught him internal alchemy and chi-gung and showed him how to utilize diet and herbal supplements for health and longevity. Master Li was not a celibate. Over the course of his long life he married 14 times, and by the time of his death in 1933, he counted almost 200 living descendants within his extended family.
After his death, modern scholars confirmed his identity, traced his life all the way back to the year of his birth, and conclusively verified his lifespan. Master Lee's life demonstrates how well Taoist longevity techniques work when properly practiced.
Master Li continued to take long hikes in the mountains until the final years of his life; he remained sexually active for over two centuries, never became senile and died with all of his own teeth and most of his hair.
Master Li's Diet
Occasional small bits of meat. He was not a strict vegetarian. Limited intake of grains and root vegetables. His daily diet consisted mostly of fruit lightly steamed vegetables.
Master Li's Herbal Supplements
Ginseng, Gotu Kola, Polygonum Multiflorum, and Garlic.
* There is also a recipe for a Spring Tonic concocted by Master Li.

8 Pieces Of Brocade
Ba Duan Gin
Ba Duan Gin in English translates to “The Eight Pieces of Brocade”. Ba Duan Gin is an ancient Chinese exercise developed to ones overall health, longevity, and rejuvenation of the body. Ba Duan Gin is considered a nei chi kung exercise, or internal exercise. Ba Duan Gin has two parts; the first part is standing stretching exercises, the second part sitting self-massage exercises. It is these exercises that kept the Shao Lin Priests strong, healthy and vital, thereby, making them live a longer, happier life.
Marshal Yeuh Fei, a famous Chinese Military General and creator of the Eagle Claw Kung Fu Style and the Hsing Yi Chuan Style created Ba Duan Gin. It is said March Yeuh Fei originally developed twelve exercises and after some 800 years of being passed down from generation to generation, it has now taken the form of eight exercises.

Classic Of Muscle & Tendon Exchange
Yi Gun Gin
Yi Gun Gin translated to the "Classic of Muscle & Tendon Exchange." As quoted from Grandmaster Peter Kwok's book, Secret Health Teachings Of The Shao Lin Priest, copyright 1976 by Scientific Health News Service:
..."is the most famous but rarely known exercise secretly kept within the Shao-Lin priests for 4500 years. It is not an exaggeration to say that the worldwide leading reputation in the martial arts earned by the Shao Lin Temple is mainly attributed to this simple and easy-to-learn exercise. It is exactly this secret exercise that made the Shao Lin priests almost indestructable, having the ability to protect themselves from even knife stabbing and to practically walk through a wall."
This simple set consists of only 12 simple exercises.

Mental Focusing Form
Also known as: Yi Quan, Yi Chuan, Yichuan, I Chuan, Ichuan, or Dacheng, Da Chengchuan.
The Founder Great Master Wang Xiang Zhai (1887-1963)
Grandmaster Wang Xiang Zhai was born in 1885 in Hebei province of China, near Beijing. Due to sicknesses he suffered as a child, he was lead to the great Xing Yi boxer (Kuo) Guo Yun Shen to teach him exercises that would improve his health. Wang was diligent and dedicated student. In fact, Guo was so impressed with Wang that he selected him as the preferred student and taught him all his secrets. Guo Yun Shen already in an advanced age, was very strict in the training of the young Wang.
I Chuan is essentially formless and has its' main focus on developing internal power and strength of the mind. it certainly has its martial applications and is heavily using principles and concepts that are indicative of all internal martial arts such as, Tai Chi, Pa Kua and Hsing Yi.
Much of the initial development came from the Hsing Yi system. This is a very powerful Chi Kung system and will exellerate one's internal training if practiced in conjunction with their internal systems. China Hand Kung Fu Academy leans more to the Zhan Zhang or Standing Pole Methods of training.
Fa Jing is the tranmission of power. You would think that expressing your energy or power is easy after practicing all of your Kung Fu forms. However, you can have forms, but if your movements are not connected to your body movement and your mind at together, all you have is external power. Learning to connect and express is what is brought through our Fa Jing training.
Iron Palm Training
China Hand Kung Fu Academy trains in 2 disciplines of Iron Palm Training which are internal in nature with the intent to train in higher level achievements versus shear power training. Our goal is to not only stregthen the body but to derive a high level of internal power with our striking.
Shaolin Iron Palm
This iron palm set consist of serveral stages. The first stage is to strike a mung bean bag until the mung beans are pulverized. The second stage is to strike a gravel bag until the gravel is pulverized. The third stage is to strike iron ball bearing bag. Each stage requires your to strike the bag, self massage with Dit Da Jow and standing meditation or posting.
Pa Kua Cotton Palm
This iron palm set is to simply strike a soft medium, such as a phone book, utilizing the waist and Mind to extend the power. Again, your striking session is finished with standing meditation.
