Internal Strength Workout
The book Axe Hand; Hsing-i & Internal Strength Workout, is Traditional Chinese Internal Martial Arts with many methods for developing internal energy which have never been published before. Comments and focus of practice help with one’s own level of development, giving training insight into the internals, never articulated before.
A hard-external arm blow must usually chambered/pocketed first to get it's full power; whereas an internal blow can attain killing power in two inches or less. If and when the blow misses, the hard/external fighter's movement must go the longer route back and forth to the initial launch point of the chamber/pocket. For example, most karate practitioners start the punch in the chamber/pocket area with the fists at the waist, or tucked up higher along the body's side ranging all the way up to the armpit, for some styles.
Internal blows can be a 'continuous and returning fist', maintaining their momentum and power as they travel and change direction, so you get many 'second chances if the first attempt does not connect. A karate front snap punch, has all the force released at the end of the blow, and is jerked/snapped back, so there is nothing left of the power generated; they have to reload!

Five Move Martial Tai Chi Set
This form enables one to make use of the ground, that is accented by the rooting stance in the construction gravel.
This Old Super Short Form, shows the energy between the moves. Tai Chi OSS can be done blindfolded, on mountain tops (Shasta), and I have even done it at 30,000 feet in the head of a plane.
All of the moves are Traditional Chinese Internal Martial Arts (TCIM).
This form transcends style, and be done in long or short movements; fast or slow. I learned this form in the early 1970s, and it was taught by a number of unaffaliated schools.

Tai Chi circulates energy in your body and heals through increasing the healing life force; Qi (Chi). Tai Chi movements, and Qigong unblock the energy flow through body energy channels (meridians), as does Acupuncture. Smooth flowing “chi” energy, good energy replaces stagnant energy that causes sickness.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, weak chi energy causes weak body function and therefore illness. Health is dependant upon strong and smooth flowing chi energy. When the cell's own repair mechanisms are able to function with the availability of this energy, healing begins.
The healing of Tai Chi is highlighted in areas where modern medicine has yet to discover effective treatments for: cancer, arthritis, diabetes, neuromuscular diseases, chronic degenerative diseases, and chronic auto-immune diseases. Healing is complimented by other non-prescription therapies, such as diet and herbs.
Chi circulation improves blood and lymph circulation, so it effectively strengthens your immune system. This strengthening, will help in slowing down the effects of cancer, and aid in recovery.
Continuous and returning fist; Yang style; short (5 move) and long forms (101 moves). Qi Gong (Chi Kung), and push hands basics. Health, internal strength, calm spirit, and a sure technique for self defense.
Moving and standing forms of Embrace the Moon (Standing Pole, Hold the Ball, Hug the Tree), as well as Prayer Hands Qigong for feeling Qi yourself. Moving forms help you adjust your own Qi by testing it.

(Hsing-i, Xing Yi)
Hsing-I uses the same Five Element Theory as acupuncture for health, and for martial power and balance as well. The I-Ching uses what is there before it takes form.

Hsing-I uses this ‘I’, to stage the stepping motion to aid in the positioning, momentum and anchoring to hit with combined internal power. Many Qigong practices the same energy focus involving the Lower Dan Tien; Hsing-i directs its rooted power with the Lower Dan Tien. `

More on Hsing Yi
To practice Tai Chi, Ba Gua, or even Qigong without a real grasp and feeling of Qi, is to go through the motions with an empty shell.
The Qi moving through the moves, and in between the moves; is what gives the internal its power. Without Qi, these are no more than a pretty dance; as a car is when an engine is running in neutral.
The hollow shaft of a metal arrow can deliver some martial force; however when that tube is filled with a propellant and payload, it becomes a jet or missile.
This book’s focus is the development, feeling, testing and using Qi yourself.
What is Qi (click here)
The internal energy focus of the book has many paths: hard and soft style Qigong, static and moving postures. Calming emphasis in Qi methods for energy pooling and meridian circulation. Quick projection of explosive Fa Jing in health or attack; as is used in Dim Mak and healing hands.
More on Qigong
Wrist and fore-arm stretches to help energy flow:
Progress, consciousness, and power are all tested objectively in meditation, Qigong, martial drills, as well as in-animate objects.
Standing Pole (Embrace the Moon or Hold the Ball) shifting the water and rising-expanding/sinking-contracting;
Fore-arm Throw double set, dynamic drill, adjusting moving root, responsive blocking enabling the same move for offence and defense, center of Qi as it moves through oneself and the center between two people; Hsing-i San Ti: standing and moving for Qi and Fa Jing;
Workout book contains many everyday methods for internals, meditations, rooting, exercises, tests and self adjustments.
Good for all backgrounds since the essence is emphasized, rather than a particular language; although words are used, it is more what is between the words. Instruction goes from the individual’s known, to his related unknown. Taught with the common ground of the 'shared lived experience' .
Internal means independent thought rather than compliance to a doctrine, having it make sense to you, in your own way: this is truly internal since its intrinsic nature is your soul.
Common theme with other energy work: of removing blocks through meditation, stretching, and exercise. Traditional development of the energy and awareness before the technique as is the case in many ancient traditions.
Developing and practicing the 'universal' of the Qigong, rather than the particular application. Plato talks about universal concepts such as what is in common with all chairs to make them a chair.
Some Qigong very Yang, and will heat palms, the Yang Qigong methods will not only heat the practitioner, but the entire room.

Contact email at: firstname.lastname@example.org See below, fgor an Internal Iron Palm strike to a telephone pole, that is bowed by the force of the strike.
Compare the pole's movement at:
1) the top where the light fixture can be aligned with the wire (no movement of the top of the pole);
2) the middle area along the rail of the background boat at around waist level, near the boat's oval window (most of the movement);
3) the lower area by the feet, along the metal retaining ring (some movement).
This middle area is where the palm strike hit and bowed the pole; which cannot be done with a push.
Sifu Chin of the Florida Shaolin Kung-Fu Federation in Fort Lauderdale, is also traditional in matters concerning Internal Power. It is a secret, he feels, not to be given too freely given. “In the old times the student sometimes practiced about ten years before his master would teach him Hay Kung (internal power from breathing)P. In Bak Sil Lum, Hay Kung Training is prerequisite to Iron Palm in order to prevent internal injuries. Iron Palm is very dangerous, almost like carrying a gun. Proper training and medicines are very important.”
