You, too, Can Become a Legend of Kung Fu!
I am not referring to Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, or any of the other martial art cinema stars when I refer to legends of kung fu. I am talking about those mystical feats that all people are in awe of, and wish they could do.
One of the first legends I ever came across was a fellow who could jump 6 to 10 feet high. He could stand on the street and jump to rooftop. The way to learn how to do this was to dig a hole 1 foot deep and practice jumping out of it for an hour every day, after a month you add a few inches, another month a few more inches, after a few years you’re down to 6 feet, 7 feet, 10 feet, And then you can jump right to the roof of the house. Whoa!
Another legend of kung fu I came across, more dangerous, was a fellow who would stab himself first with a pen and a bigger pan finally a small knife and a bigger night, And eventually he would be able to take withstand the strike of swords. Whoa!
My favorite of these legends, is actually more of an American legend. It was born out of people’s desire to have great strength. What you do is you lift a new born calf on your shoulders. And the next day you lift it again. And the next and the next. And by time a year is past you are able to lift a 1000 pounds. Whoa!
Now I love these legends, but let’s face it if they were that easy everybody would be doing them. So really, These are the comic book variations of internet scams.
The only real way to do kung fu is to get yourself a good martial arts course and do it. No tricks no gimmicks, just good hard work, and a belief in yourself that you can accomplish great things in your life.
Probably the best kung fu course out there, is the Shaolin butterfly. It is based on fut ga Shaolin hung fu, but it uses Western logic to make the study faster and more efficient.
