I addition to the basic DVD’s that have been recommended, I have purchased both silk reeling videos and am considering the qigong ones as well. Is that overly ambitious, and not the best use of time to work with the different teachings?

The silk reeling and Qigong videos belong to the Hunyuan System. They are not the same as the foundations.

Thank you Sifu, so it appears as if I shouldn’t be focusing on that at all at this time. I should be focusing on Yilu, foundations, and Circle corrections. should the silk reeling be used at all for warm ups. And if so, how many repetitions for each movement? Thank you for your quick response. I look forward to studying with you in person.

Hello Master Chen Zhonghua,

I am hoping to view your school in Dezhou this September. My intention is to have a look around for one day ahead of full time training.

Please can you let me know if this is acceptable and the location of your school.

Kind regards,

Steve
