note: these old books on tai chi I find are generally better than the modern ones.
This text is clear about using “primal” (pre-natal) Qi to train to a high level. – Michael
Interesting. Also the references:
“The founder of Wudangs Taiji Boxing was Zhang Sanfeng from Yi Prefecture in Liaodong. He was also called Junbao, or Quanyi. People called him Zhang the Slob. As the Daoist master of his generation, he is thus mentioned in Ming History [chapter 299 bios, part 187], which also noticeably describes his capacity for longevity.”
Taiji Boxing is a method from Wudang passed down from Zhang Sanfeng, a man with a slovenly look who was therefore dubbed The Slob. He obtained the Way in the Zhongnan Mountains, then succeeded with it at last at Mt. Wudang. The Yuan Dynasty emperor Yingzong [Gegeen Khan] gave him the title of The Comprehending-the-Profound Demonstrating-Transformation Perfected Man.
