In China, every Qigong leaner should learn it step by step...
In Chinese Kung Fu novels, there is a saying 走火入魔, directly translation is "possessed by the Devil", it means Qigong should be learned step by step, or it will hurt yourself.

I call shenanigans on this tale...

Qigong is simply the practice of coordinating deep, abdominal breathing in time with physical movements, and using that breath to release tension in the posture.

What you're saying it just pure fantasy.

Yeah,well we'll believe it when he lets someone who's NOT a student of his take a stab at him. Someone with a good rep,like Chuck Norris.Or Hannibal.

Seriously,if some people can do this why do they never offer themselves to be tested at places like Harvard,or Oxford? They have good testing facilities in places like that.

Oh....yeah-that's why no one offers to be tested in such places. Maybe you can convince your teacher to be the first. But I doubt it.

You are either -

(a) a troll
(b) a liar
(c) a moron

or possibly some hybrid mutation of all three

I am SO up for this! Can I use my own knife?

I have one I personally designed and had forged specifically for being efficient at fighting and hurting

Im not lying my teacher was taught by a shaolin monk......Qigong practices breathing into the diaphram and then squeezing using your stomach to create pressure and therefore make your body hard also by using Chi, the training for these techniques are rare to obtain because the monks in shaolin keep it secret. Havent u seen on documentaries or whatever about the monks who have superhuman strength or breaking a spear with their neck? How do u thnk they do dat?

Parlour tricks, relaxation and practice.

I've never done it with a spear, but even now I can put a broom handle on my throat, have you put the other end on your chest and still be able to push you away.

The Shaolin monks are awesomely conditioned, and that's a major part of it.

Chi though is nothing more than breath control.

Easily - Carnies have been doing that for years...shaving your head and putting on orange robes doesn't make it any more mysterious
