Importance Of Holistic Learning

I'd a good chat with my bone therapist after my session today, he mentioned having seen a few Qigong and martial arts masters died from cancer.

Then I added, if not cancer, it'd be from stroke or heart disease, right?

He concurred.

I then shared what I wrote just yesterday on practitioners who don't complete their learnings unlike their predecessors in the past, where aside the art, they have to be accomplished in TCM and bone setting skills so they can pick up their injuries and blockages and self-heal.

He agreed.

I told him about 南怀瑾,of how he smoked 4-5 big packs of cigarettes daily + have about just 1 meal too + sleeps only 3 hours + held long hours of classes, and he died at 95 years old of lung failure.

Bone therapist was amazed. I said, "This is then a true martial arts exponent."

南怀瑾 once scolded a whole group of senior Shaolin monks of their mediocre martial arts foundation, building a good frame of muscles but sorely lacking in the department of Qi foundation.

Being accomplished in the art form externally, but lacking in the Qi foundation is very dangerous. It'll give rise to a lot of joint and skeletal issues as they age.

I know, I've seen a few already. I've also warned one before of his practice but he simply doesn't listen.

He now can't even bend his waist downwards, and his TCM + tuina physicians can't pick up his internal injuries.


How do I know?

In the 雅集 last year, he happened to display his skills right in front of me, 2/5 of his opened palm was showing black blood. It means he has serious internal injuries already.

Does anyone know how Yip Man (叶问) died? Head and neck cancer, and laryngeal cancer.  Yip Man isn't a true martial arts exponent too.

Chinese martial and meditation arts must be explored and learnt in the holistic level, not according to your fancy.

True art has no room for laziness.
