內容簡介

內容簡介 This book belongs in every martial artist's library, as the Eighteen Lohan Skills are a foundational system for the development of kung fu-not only traditional Shaolin Temple Kung Fu, but for nearly all martial art systems created thereafter. This is true in the applications and functions of the exercises, and in posture names as well. No full translation or serious presentation of these exercises exists in English-until now In presenting these teachings, Stuart Alve Olson made exclusive use of the original Chinese text by Praying Mantis Kung Fu master Fan Xudong and the later publication Lohan Gong, detailing the exercises by Master Wong Honfan. Included are the original illustrations from Fan Xudong's work and the photographs of Master Wong Honfan performing the exercises. The second section shows the original Shaolin text of these exercises with illustrations. The third section of the book presents the actual eighteen Lohan figures for which the exercises are named, providing a deeper spiritual outlook on the practice of kung fu and meditation. Through its yoga-like stretching aspects, the Eighteen Lohan Skills are not only a qigong practice (combining breathing with body movements), they also train martial applications, and promote internal alchemy skills because they stimulate and develop the internal energies of jing (body essence), qi (breath vitality), and shen (mind spirit). The Eighteen Lohan Skills, then, are a complete system for health, longevity, and spiritual development. This book is a necessity for martial artists, qigong practitioners, and even those who follow Buddhist meditation practices and philosophy.
