    Shaolin Eight Methods & Five Petal Plum Blossom Qigong?

    Has anyone ever heard about the Shaolin "eight methods"? fao (floating on top), chum (sinking), tun (swallow), tow (spit out), gong (hard external strength), yao (soft internal power), bik (the act of following and pressing), kup (stick or stuck)? OR heard of Ng Jee Mui Fa Hei Gong (Five Petal Plum Blossom Qigong)? I'm looking for more information on the two.

    Praying Mantis uses a lot of the same concepts/terms.

    Brendan Lai said that some refer to Praying Mantis as "The Improved Shaolin".

    It's a Hakka thing. It refers to the body method used during power generation/alleviation.
    Those that are the most sucessful are also the biggest failures. The difference between them and the rest of the failures is they keep getting up over and over again, until they finally succeed.
