Exercise. Everyone knows they should get more, yet many of us feel that we just don’t have enough time for it.
Kung Fu to the rescue. How? It’s because Kung Fu is an energy cultivation practice. To be precise, it is a well-defined system of practices that keeps you healthy and fit, it clears your mind, and instills you with a kind of calm and powerful confidence that puts you in a place where you can take on the world and win. You become more effective at everything you do without getting tired and stressed. A full and busy day with loads of energy left over. Imagine that! And yes, after all is said and done, leaving you with time left over in your day. Problem solved.
Our system of Kung Fu (at Fists of Mystery and Truth) consists of a series of physical movements (forms) that enhance your bodies strength, range of motion, agility, reflexes, and quickness. It does the same for your mind too. It has to – you can’t do anything physical without your mind creating the conditions within your body to do those things first. Neither your mind nor your body can do any of the above without energy. Energy comes from a combination of nourishment, health, and emotion. Emotion is closely related to spirit. Spirit is something that is in part inherent within us and in part something that we can cultivate consciously. So there you have it. A practice of Mind, Body, and Spirit. Our Kung Fu is a system of very specific and detailed methods for building these up in balance. It took hundreds of years for this practice to develop.
Our Kung Fu is taught as a martial art and it is very effective. But it’s important to understand that the fighting methods of the art are just a part of the whole picture. Martial art requires self-honesty, earnest engagement, careful exploration, respect for yourself and the world around you in a way that very few things in life do. It’s the perfect environment for exacting a balanced growth of mind, body, and spirit.
I have spent more than 40 years learning, practicing, and researching Kung Fu. I am on a mission to share this art and science with all who could benefit from it. So, let’s get started! Let’s get energized, healthy, and become unbeatable! Are you in?
