    You can't.
    One American guy came to a Chinese teacher and wanted to learn

    - Chinese meditation. The Chinese teacher marked a black dot on the wall and asked that American student to sit in front of that wall and looked at that dot for 2 hours in every training section.

    - spear form. The Chinese teacher open a CMA spear book and learned 3 spear moves in the morning and then taught that American student those 3 moves that evening. That teacher didn't end that spear form because there was a flip in that form that the Chinese teacher couldn't do himself.

    Both stroies are true and did happen back in the 70th.
